- Jan 10, 2019 -

Stroke, also known as stroke, cerebral infarction, according to statistics, about 70% of strokes occur in winter.

Once a stroke occurs, it will leave a serious lifelong disability if not discovered and treated in time.

When the autumn and winter seasons are cold, the blood pressure of the human body will increase slightly. When the temperature drops, the blood flow rate in the human body will slow down and the blood viscosity will increase. When the weather is bright, the blood vessels of the human body will naturally shrink and the blood circulation will be poor. Various factors It is easier to stroke in the fall and winter seasons.

Recently, Xiao Wang, an IT practitioner in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, suddenly appeared in the right hand and could not move, and his symptoms were unclear. He was rushed to the hospital by his family. After examination, Xiao Wang suffered from acute cerebral infarction. The doctor performed surgery for Xiao Wang to clear the blocked cerebrovascular vessels. Xiao Wang, who has experienced all of this, is only 28 years old this year.

Doctors analyzed that this is related to Xiao Wang’s bad habits.Luo Yun, deputy director of the Department of Neurology, Nanjing Gulou Hospital: Patients do IT industry, often do not eat a meal, or even eat a few meals, eat a lot when the next meal, often get up early.

Due to factors such as high work pressure, fast pace of life, hypertension and cerebrovascular disease, Chinese residents will have a stroke between the ages of 63 and 65, while in Western countries, they are 73 to 75 years old.

From the onset of the stroke to within 24 hours, the doctors theoretically have an 80% chance of helping the patient reopen the blood vessels.

A one-minute episode of stroke is equivalent to "lossing" about 1.9 million cells in the brain; if the stroke is an hour, the age of the brain is "old" for three and a half years.

How to self-test the risk of stroke?

Stroke prevention is more important than treatment.

More than 80% of strokes are possible

Early prevention is achieved through the control of risk factors.

People who smoke, the risk of stroke increases by 0.13%

Drink more than 10g per day, the risk increases by 0.13%

Less than 2.5 hours of exercise per week, increased risk by 0.1%

Therefore, there is a good living habit that can reduce the probability of a stroke.

1 Smoking cessation limit alcohol + moderate exercise + reasonable diet.

2 High-risk groups should be regularly screened at the hospital. If you are over 45 years old, it is best to have a cerebrovascular examination every two years.

3 Always observe and observe your physical condition and use modern technology for health management.

Seek symptoms as soon as possible

If the patient suddenly has a related abnormal condition, the stroke may occur. The relatives should call 120 to send the doctor as soon as possible:

2 one arm and leg are weak;

3 One side of the face is numb or unconscious;

4 dizziness, can't see things, etc.;

5 severe headaches;

6 Sudden loss of consciousness.

Grasp the "golden rescue period"Treatment with thrombolysis within 3 hours has the best effect; after more than 3 hours, the risk of bleeding is high, the number of necrosis of brain cells is also more, and the recovery of hand and foot functions is more difficult, and the possibility of disability is high.

Improve awareness of risk prevention, enhance life support, prevent risks, and maintain physical and mental health.
