Stroke / Brain Attack

Stroke awareness and treatment is so near and dear to me , infact it was the main motivation for heavily investing in developing , for sure I desperately needed a platform for raising awareness about this much dreaded disease that can strike anyone any time, you only need a brain to get stroke !

Like Asthma is an issue to do with breathing , A stroke is to do with the brain , the world’s most precious asset , it is therefore fair that we know a little about the brain , in order to appreciate how detrimental stroke is or can be , and to get deeply grounded on how perishable the amazing brain is !

Got A Question?

What is a brain?

The brain is the world’s most fascinating organ, how it works is still eluding me but every living human being has a working brain.

To live in harmony, you need all your body organs, these organs work as a team for you to be.

The great George Orwell’s in his master piece animal farm held that all animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others, indeed all body organs are important but the brain is the most important!

Infact, death means absence of brain activity, so you can have a heart beat but be dead!

What does the brain do ?

The brain makes us, that is why we all view the world diffirently, we have different brains , so we can not agree all the time, but we should be sensible enough to respectfully disagree.

Survival is impossible without the brain, breathing, heart beat and all vital life features are controlled by the brain. You see , walk , talk ,move , have memory , learn, remember, hear, taste, smell, imagine, love, hate name it because your brain is working!

You know your family, where you are, where you stay, who you are because your brain is working.

The brain innovates , all man made things like air crafts, ships, cars, guns, computers , software , bridges name it are conceptualized and produced by the mighty brain!
You can’t live without the brain, modern medicine now transplants all organs except the brain.

The brain is the world’s most sophisticated and advanced gadget, I guarantee you that we may never get or see anything greater than the brain, everything is a product of the brain!

What is stroke?

A stroke is a serious life-threatening medical condition that happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off ( this is what is called ischemic stroke) , or when there is rapture of a blood vessel in the brain causing bleeding into the brain ( this is what is called hemorrhagic stroke).

The brain does what it does at no cost , the only condition is that it should have steady un-interrupted blood supply all the time.

Therefore rapture of a brain blood vessel or blockage of blood flow to the brain causes brain damage.

Strokes are a medical emergency and urgent treatment is essential.

The sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the lesser the irreversible brain damage , and the better the outcomes.

If you suspect that you or someone else is having a stroke, phone +256763406330 immediately and urgently.

Stroke symptoms

The main symptoms of stroke can be remembered with the acronym BE FAST:

Balance – stroke patients may have trouble maintaining balance, sudden dizziness or unresponsiveness also known as a coma.

Eyes: Sudden partial or complete inability to see is likely due to a stroke 

Face – the face may have dropped on 1 side. The face appears asymmetrical or deformed.

Arms – the person with a suspected stroke may be unable to lift both arms and keep them there because of weakness or numbness in 1 arm.

Speech – their speech may be slurred or the person may not be able to talk at all despite appearing to be awake; they may also have problems understanding what you’re saying.

Time – It’s time to dial +256763406330 immediately if you see any of these signs or symptoms. Seek medical attention even when symptoms resolve at home . The brain is extremely perishable so every second counts.
