At Can Tho Stroke and Cardiovascular Hospital, doctors witnessed many stroke cases under the age of 40. Dr. Cuong said that he himself had witnessed his colleague die at the age of 39 from a stroke. Because there was no method to screen for stroke before, there was little early detection. Currently, we can assess that there are high-risk people, and there are low-risk people. Therefore, Dr. Cuong said that whoever you are, you need to assess your own stroke risk.
There are two types of stroke: ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. 80% of patients with cerebral infarction have advance warning. The patient has a transient ischemic attack such as weakness in the arms and legs, is naturally active, has a sudden onset of weakness in his arms and legs, and drops the object in his hand… However, the patient does not think it is a stroke, but a stroke. hit by the wind, they often ignore it. And patients with the above warning symptoms are likely to have a stroke within 6 months.
With cerebral hemorrhage, the patient has warning signs of uncontrolled blood pressure that always exceeds 180mmhg, sudden headache.
The stroke golden period is a 6-hour period with major vessel obstruction. 4.5 hours with patients with cerebral infarction. Golden period with cerebral hemorrhage is recommended to treat as soon as possible and find the cause as soon as possible.
How to prevent stroke?
Dr. Cuong recommends that during these holidays people should be vigilant because risk factors for stroke such as drinking alcohol, patients with diabetes, excessively high blood sugar, partying too much are weak. possible stroke trigger.
Note, now that the weather is turning hot, people try not to change the temperature suddenly. Doctor Cuong cautioned that people returning home should not take cold showers immediately because it constricts blood vessels, causing a sudden increase in the amount of blood perfusion to the brain, increasing cerebral hemorrhage due to sudden temperature changes.
In addition to the above risk factors, an important cause of stroke in young people is cerebrovascular malformation, which is different from the cause of stroke in the elderly – often due to atherosclerosis. .
Cerebral vascular malformations are usually detected under the age of 18 years, these are mostly congenital malformations. Cases that should be screened for stroke even at a young age include: transient loss of consciousness, seizures in young children, persistent headaches in young people (this headache is not related to school pressure). Headaches are everywhere, headache with signs of numbness in hands and feet… If there are these signs, young people should go to the hospital for examination, not be negligent and subjective – Dr. Cuong said.
