Overview

We have been educated about heart attacks, but few of us know what a brain attack is. A brain attack is also called a stroke. It happens when a blood vessel in the brain is ruptured or blocked.

Globally, the second most life threatening disease...

Stroke is also the leading cause of permanent disability among patients that are over 45 years of age; making it a major socio-economic concern to a family and the society at large.

Act F.A.S.T.


Recognise the symptoms of a Stroke and act at once.
FACEAsk the patient to smile. Does one side of his face droop?
ARMS – Ask the patient to raise both arms. Has his arm become weak or numb?
SPEECHAsk the patient to say something. Is his speech unclear or slurred?
TIME – If any of these symptoms crop up, it’s time to call a STROKE UNIT.

Survival is a stroke of luck when it’s a matter of time...

1.9 million Neurons are lost every minute in the acute phase of an ischemic stroke. Treatment can control the damage if the patient reaches the hospital soon, after the onset of an attack.

Dealing With A Stroke Patient


Pay attention to the Do’s and Don’ts of dealing with a stroke patient, as mentioned below.

Do’s

Gather any relevant medical history
Call the Stroke Unit at a nearby Hospital

Don’ts
