Types of Stroke According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year more than 795,000 peo- in the United States have a stroke -three-quarters of which are over the age of 65. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries blood to the brain is suddenly blocked by a clot (ischemic stroke), or burst (hemorrhagic stroke), caus- ing parts of the brain to become damaged or die. About 87 percent of all strokes are ischemic. Depending on the severity of the brain damage, strokes can cause mild to severe disabilities including paralysis, loss of speech, vision and memory, along with other health and emotional issues, and death. Stroke Signs Because stroke injures the brain, the person having a stroke may not realize it. Stroke victims have the best chance if someone around them recognizes the symptoms and acts quickly. The five most cormnon symptoms include: Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, ann, or leg, especially on one side of the body. Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding. Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes. Sudden trouble walking, dizzi- ness, loss of balance or coordination. Sudden, severe headache with no known cause. The easiest way to identify a stroke is to use the F.A.S.T. test to Act Quickly Remember that stroke is a med- ical emergency and every minute counts. Even if you're not sure a stroke is happening, call 911 any- way. The longer blood flow is cut off to the brain, the greater the damage. Immediate treatment can save a person's life and improve their chances for a successful recovery. Ischemic strokes are treated with a drag called t-PA that dissolves the blood clots that block the blood flow to the brain. The window of oppor- tunity to start treating a stroke is three hours. But to be evaluated and re- ceive treatment, patients need to get to the hospital within 60 minutes. If you have a choice, wait for the paramedics rather than driving the patient yourself. Patients who are transported by EMS are evaluated and treated much quicker than peo- ple who are driven in. And, of course, don't drive if you are the one having a stroke. It's also very important that you call 911 even if symptoms go away. When symptoms of stroke disappear on their own after a few minutes, a "mini-stroke" or transient ischemic attack (T1A) may have occurred which is a warning that a major stroke may be coming. That's why mini-strokes need to be treated like emergences too. Send.your senior questiorL; to: Sa~y Senior. P.O. Box 5443, Nommn, OK 73070, or ~vit Sm%,- Sen/onorg.
