When Can A Hemorrhagic Stroke Patient In The Brain Stem Return To Consciousness?
Hello, I want to ask. How long is the possibility of conscious patients suffering from hemorrhagic stroke in the brain stem leaving the blood supply to the thalamus disrupted? When this condition is opened the eyes and when given a touch of stimulation in certain parts will respond to movement.
Hello Mr Al, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Introduce me Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Stroke is a disease that is currently often encountered. Shifts in the lifestyle of young people who are much influenced by unhealthy lifestyles cause various diseases that can cause strokes such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, etc.
Stroke consists of two types, namely bleeding stroke and blockage stroke. Both are the same will result in reduced blood supply to the brain or even none at all. That causes certain parts of the brain to not get oxygen supply and eventually cause damage and even tissue death. The prognosis of stroke is very bad, it will be worse if what happens is a bleeding type stroke.
Complaints that will arise in a stroke other than a decrease in consciousness is dependent on which part of the brain is affected by the problem. Almost all strokes are dangerous and deadly. But the most dangerous is a brain stem hemorrhage stroke. Why is that ?
The brain stem itself has an important role in human life, almost all nerve impulses / delivery from the brain will pass through the brain stem before being transferred to the body. Some important functions are regulator of consciousness (reticular fibers from the brain stem to the thalamus), respiratory function, blood pressure, heart rhythm, swallowing, coordination of the eyeball, hearing, etc.
Responding to your question about how long the patient is likely to be unconscious, there is no literature or theory that can guarantee this, given the stroke suffered is quite severe, another factor that can affect the patient's recovery is the handling / action taken to stop the bleeding.
Right now what you can do is:
Evaluate the patient's condition continuously (don't stay away too far because the patient can die at any time).
Gather family members and pray together, remember healing and health only come from God.
Entrust everything to the medical team where the patient is treated, believe all the actions and treatments given are the best treatment.
For you to rest and protect your life, stay away from behaviors that are at risk of causing an illness such as smoking and drinking alcohol.
Consult and discuss with a neurosurgeon who handles patients. Ask the treatment plan given.
That's all I can answer, thank you.
Wish you good health always :)
