The risk of a stroke can be suppressed if the patient immediately gets treatment. This is related to the ability of the surrounding environment to recognize attacks, and the speed of bringing patients to the hospital. Here are some facts regarding stroke.

Must Read


1. Occurs in the brain

Stroke is a disruption of blood supply to the brain that occurs due to blockage or rupture of vessels. As many as 70-80 percent of stroke cases are caused by blockages that block the flow of blood to the brain.

"For cases of blockage can be overcome by administration of drugs, which actually do not need advanced technology. The important thing is to have a CT scan and stroke management team with doctors who support competencies, such as neurologists," said Director of the National Brain Center Hospital (PON) Musyid Bustami SpS (K), KIC, MARS at updetails.com.

2. Can attack young age

Along with low awareness of exercise, eating vegetables and fruit, and not smoking as a result of the age of stroke patients getting younger. This is alarming because stroke attacks risk reducing productivity, and increasing the burden on the country.

"A bad lifestyle increases the risk of hypertension, cholesterol levels, and diabetes until a stroke occurs. Therefore, it is important to improve lifestyle to prevent strokes," said Musyid.

3. Alert blood pressure more than 130/80 mmHg

More than normal blood pressure is actually at risk for stroke. According to Dr. Musyid, the public must be vigilant if their blood pressure is more than 130/80 mmHg especially if diagnosed with hypertension.

Patients with high blood pressure should control, consume drugs according to prescription, and apply a healthy lifestyle. These efforts can prevent a stroke that risks causing disability to death.

4. Not necessarily disabled

Stroke attacks do not necessarily cause disability, even in some cases can heal. According to Dr. Musyid in general, 1/3 stroke patients can recover without disability, the other 1/3 recover with disability, and the rest are untreated such as death.

"Healing and prevention of disability in stroke patients depends on the speed and accuracy of treatment. Originally in the golden period of 4.5 hours since the first attack to be able to handle, then the chances of recovering are still large," said Musyid.

5. Recognize a stroke

Stroke attacks can be identified by FAST, namely the occurrence of face dropping, arm weakness, speech difficulties, and time to immediately call for help. These symptoms can be seen in the faces of patients who are no longer symmetrical, have difficulty speaking, or have difficulty doing daily activities.

"If there is FAST, it is better to immediately go to the hospital without delay. Facing a stroke, we must think badly so we must immediately go to the hospital. This thought is not a stroke because it has not interfered with daily activities," said the Chairperson of the Indonesian Stroke Society Foundation Adin Nulkhasanah SpS, MARS.
