STROKE WITHIN THE LIBERIAN COMMUNITIES

12 March 2017 / Dr. Weezs 

 
Stroke occurs when the blood supply carrying oxygen to the brain is cut off due to a blockage or rupture of a blood vessel. The effects of a stroke on the brain can be temporary or permanent, and range from slight to severe. 
        * Cerebral thrombosis ~ is a blockage of the cerebral artery by a clot which forms inside the artery .
        * Cerebral embolism ~ occurs when a wandering blood clot (embolus ) carried in the blood stream becomes lodged in one of the cerebral blood vessel. 
         * Cerebral hemorrhage ~ occurs when a diseased artery in the brain ruptures and floods the surrounding tissue with blood .
         
          SIGNS / SYMPTOMS 
 + Decrease level of consciousness 
 + totally unconscious 
 + Slow respiration with snoring sound. 
 + Unequal pupils. 
 + Paralysis or weakness on one side of the body or face. 
 + loses ability to speak or slurred. 
   
    HOW TO HELP A STROKE VICTIM 
* Maintain an open airway .
* Keep the tongue or saliva from blocking the air passage. 
 * Don't give the victim anything by mouth. 
 * keep the victim lying down with the head and shoulders raised to alleviate some of the pressure on the brain . If the victim is unconscious, place the victim on the affected side to allow fluid to drain. 
  * Don't move the victim any more than necessary. 
  * Keep the victim quite and calm .
  * Reassure the victim, who may be quite anxious or nervous 
  * Obtain medical care as soon as possible .
PLEASE TELL ME HOW  YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS EDUCATION. I REALLY NEED YOUR FEEDBACK OK.

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
