STROKE WITHIN THE LIBERIAN COMMUNITIES

12 March 2017 / Dr. Weezs

        * 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 .
