Daniel covers the following information and much more in his new books.
A stroke is a state when brain cells abruptly die due to lack of oxygen. This is very dangerous as it can lead to patients death or serious stage like he might not be able to speak, memory loss could occur or even he can be paralyzed. If it is suspected you should immediately call for emergency. According to a study around 80% strokes can be prevented which is a huge number. This is a condition which can strike anyone at anytime.
He explained that there are mainly two types of stroke-
Ischemic stroke- It is occurs due to blood clot which blocks the part of brain due to blood flow hindrance. Suppose if a blood clot is there in the body and it gets break and becomes floating it gets stuck in the brain and can hinder the blood flow in brain part which can lead to stroke.
Hemorrhagic stroke- When the blood vessel in the brain ruptures and fills the brain space with blood. Or the defective artery burst and fills the brain with blood, brain stops functioning which leads to stroke.
There are some strokes preventions which if detected the patient can be saved from this state-
Knowing blood pressure
Control alcohol use
Know cholesterol levels
Manage cholesterol levels
Treat circulation problems
Transient ischemic attack
Traumatic brain injury
Traumatic Brain injury is a state when external force suddenly injures the brain. This can be very dangerous as the brain is the most sensitive and important part of our body. Around 90% of people who get brain injury are not able to live a normal life. They may have retained their cerebral abilities but most of them suffer from memory problems.
The major problem after stroke is that patients are rehabilitated because they suffer from memory loss, thinking, awareness, learning and judgment power becomes quite nil and they are not in their senses due to needing proper care and attention.
