Stroke Awareness Month

There are 3 main types of stroke.

Most will be caused by a blockage cutting off blood supply to the brain. This is an ischaemic stroke

They can also be caused by bleeding in or around the brain. This is a haemorrhagic stroke.

Finally there is a TIA, transient ischaemic attack  also known as a mini-stroke. With a TIA, the symptoms only last for a short amount of time as the blockage that stops blood getting to the brain is temporary.

 

The quicker treatment is given, the better chances are for a good recovery.

Recognising a stroke is therefore very important. Using the FAST test is the best way to do this.

The following information is taken from the stroke.org.uk website.

Signs of stroke

  • Face: Can the person smile? Has their face fallen on one side?
  • Arms: Can the person raise both arms and keep them there?
  • Speech problems: Can the person speak clearly and understand what you say? Is their speech slurred?
  • Time: If you see any of these three signs, it's time to call 999.

 

Sadly, stroke there are occasions when a stroke is not diagnosed quickly enough in a medical setting, or inadequate treatment is given which can be devastating.
