PARALYSIS & STROKE
Specific symptoms of a stroke are sudden facial deviation on one side, arm or leg weakness, imbalance, double vision, headache, and vomiting.
Patients should reach the hospital in 4.5 hours, which is a golden hour so that doctors can give a clot-buster injection called tPA (tissue plasminogen activator) and dissolve the clot-blocking artery so that patient recovery is faster.
The clot can be removed from the artery by advanced technology called mechanical thrombectomy by an interventional neurologist when the patient reaches the hospital within 6 hours of stroke symptoms onset.
Other treatments included blood thinner medicines, BP control, and physiotherapy.
