Stroke symptoms can be determined by observing your body’s reaction to a stroke event. This type of assessment is known as the cognitive assessment or CEA. The acronym CEA stands for “Chalotone Emission Facet”, this refers to the blood flow to the brain, in and out.
A person with mild cognitive impairment will not have difficulty with this type of assessment, as long as they do not perform any unusual movements. In order for the patient to have a full assessment for the acute stroke recognition, they will need to perform the cognitive function test called the AAT. This is usually performed on a daily basis. Another choice for the cognitive function test is called the matched pairs test. A match is between word and picture, this is usually easier for people who have experienced memory problems in the past.
Another way to determine if someone may have a stroke symptom is to see if there is drooping on the head. If there is a loss of height or drooping on the forehead and/or the jaw then it is possible that the affected region has suffered a traumatic brain injury. A traumatic brain injury causes microscopic tears in the soft tissue of the brain called the brain myelin. This can also cause weakness in the muscles around the area of the injury. If you droop your forehead, you may have experienced a traumatic brain injury.
People who have been involved in an automobile accident, or who have been swimming when suddenly onset of dizziness occurred, are at greater risk for a stroke. Swimming and other water activities can increase the risk of a stroke, especially if there is an absence of chlorine in the pool. Dizziness is one of the first warning signs of a stroke and can be confused with confusion.
The physical examination normally includes a measurement of the eyes, head, and the one arm/one leg. There may also be a neurological test called nerve conduction studies, or CDT. If there is a marked loss of vision in one side of the head, there may be difficulties with the visual field and visual acuity. Signs of seizures or severe seizures are also apparent. Signs of aphasia- a difficulty with coordinate and motor control–could also indicate a stroke. Loss of speech and swallowing and drooping of one side of the face are also common.
If you become unconscious during the course of your stroke, the paramedics will need you to get medical care right away. You should notify the paramedics of any problems with your condition, or any changes in your condition such as, if you lose consciousness and are prone to seizures. When you become unconscious, do not attempt to drive the vehicle and, if you are in a coma or near death, get help right away.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Stroke is a catastrophic injury that is difficult to recover from. The road to recovery is a long and difficult journey. In order to prevent this from happening to you, it is important to have early signs of stroke and to implement a stroke plan.
Stroke symptom is just one of the many major risk factors associated with stroke. Stroke is the second largest reason for all accidental deaths in the United States. A stroke can be prevented with early detection through regular blood pressure checks, cholesterol screening, weight management and exercise. Stroke is no laughing matter. It is a serious condition that if not treated correctly, has the possibility to completely change your life.
