DO YOU KNOW THE WARNING SIGNS OF A STROKE?

MAY KICKS OFF STROKE AWARENESS MONTH AND JOINING US IS DR. AMRE NOUH…THE DIRECTOR OF THE COMPREHENSIVE STROKE CENTER AT HARTFORD HOSPITAL…

Q. FIRST, WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A STROKE, WE’VE HEARD ABOUT “FAST” BUT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

A. A stroke typically presents as sudden onset numbness or weakness on one side, slurring of speech language difficulties such as problems with comprehension or verbal output or some visual loss. A good word to remember would be using the word fast. F is for facial weakness or an asymmetric smile. A is for arm weakness or drifting down the arm. Assess for speech either slurring of the speech or inability to speak or understand. And T is for time which is critical because time is brain and patient should be immediately rushed to the hospital.

Q. WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT OPTIONS AVAILABLE AT THE AYER NEUROSCIENCE INSTITUTE AT HARTFORD HEALTHCARE?

A. At Hartford Hospital we have all the treatments for stroke patients. Eligible patients with ischemic strokes can receive IV TPA, a clot busting medicine and some may benefit from mechanical thrombectomy using an endo-vascular catheter. Patient's with brain bleeds or ruptured aneurysms requiring surgical intervention can receive 24/7 neurosurgical care. We have a dedicated stroke unit and neuro-ICU which best suits our patients providing excellent nursing care optimizing outcome.

Q. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE NEWER TRIALS OFFERED TO PATIENTS?

A. Current trials include using TPA for minor strokes, use of anti-coagulation for secondary stroke prevention and studies evaluating post-stroke depression and fatigue.
