STROKE

In recent years stroke has become more common among people below the age of 60. The elderly, working-age adults and even teenagers can be threatened depending on a range of factors.

Embolic Stroke

Occurs when a blood clot forms elsewhere (e.g. the heart), travels via the bloodstream, and clogs the tiny blood vessel in the brain.

Cerebral Thrombosis

Occurs when a blood clot forms inside a blood vessel within the brain which has been narrowed by the build up of fatty substances (atherosclerosis).

Hemorrhagic Stroke

Occurs when weakened blood vessels rupture and bleed in the brain. The blood accumulates and puts pressure on the surrounding brain tissues, causing damages.   Time is the key to treatments. If any of the FAST symptoms appear, patients need to be in the care of  specialists as soon as possible. If reached in a timely manner, modern technology can greatly improve the chances of survival and complete recovery.

F.A.S.T
