The causes of stroke are quite numerous, but the main one
is hypertension. For this reason, periodic monitoring of changes
in blood pressure is necessary . Statistics from recent decades show that,
thanks to blood pressure control, stroke cases have been reduced in
people who have a 50% increased predisposition to this.
Causes of stroke also include
atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is an aperiodic contraction of the heart muscle that
disrupts its function and leads to stagnation of blood in certain parts of the
heart. As a result, the risk of blood clotting and blood clots is significantly increased . After which there is a danger that the next contraction of the myocardium will lead to the separation of a part of the blood clot into the general bloodstream, which will lead to blockade of small vessels and, accordingly, to a violation of cerebral circulation.
Atrial fibrillation can be detected as a result of
medical diagnosis through the use of an electrocardiograph. A cardiologist can make a correct diagnosis even with a thorough examination of the patient’s pulse. If the diagnosis of atrial fibrillation is confirmed, drugs are usually prescribed that thin the blood and prevent its coagulation. Most often, aspirin is prescribed for these purposes. Also, atherosclerosis can be recorded in the causes of stroke. An increase in blood cholesterol increases the risk of stroke.
Very often, a disease accompanying a stroke is diabetes
mellitus. It can be noted that diabetes is associated with almost
all diseases associated with the cardiovascular system. The reason is a
violation of various metabolic processes of the body, which affects organs and
systems in general. This is due to severe metabolic disturbances that
affect many organs and systems of our body, including the health of blood vessels.
The following causes of stroke are related to the climate: obvious
fluctuations in atmospheric pressure, a sharp change in the climate regime, and
sometimes just a change in the weather. Therefore, if a person has a tendency to
develop a stroke, he should be extremely cautious about long
trips. The causes of the stroke, in addition to all of the above, also include a
number of quite familiar ones – smoking, drinking alcohol,
overeating, a sedentary lifestyle, overwork and frequent stressful
However, even with an increased risk of stroke, it
can be avoided if timely prevention of the disease or
appropriate measures are taken.
Signs such as dizziness, drowsiness, impaired speech and movement, and vision will help determine the development of a stroke in a mild form .
At the same time, the patient cannot gather thoughts together and formulate clearly
anything, loss of consciousness for a while is possible. In a severe stroke, a
person suddenly loses consciousness, paralysis of half the body occurs, the
pulse slows sharply, breathing becomes intermittent. Whatever the
causes of the stroke, it is important to immediately call an ambulance and provide the necessary
first aid if possible.
