I want to discuss some important facts about brain stroke. Do you know that brain stroke is this 2nd leading cause of death in India and the most common cause of lifelong disability. Every 6 seconds someone somewhere dies because of rains in India more than 15 lakh deposit. Sir Thomas Roe and almost as high as 6 lakhs do not survive or developed lifelong disability but the good thing is that the treatment options are there and we can treat patients we can save life and Salvage or prevent disability so it is important to know what is brain stroke.

Brain strokes are of two types number 1 is ischemic stroke which is due to blockage of an artery supplying to an area of brain as a result area of brain doesn't receive adequate oxygen or nutrient and starts to die and ultimately leads to develop inform 85% of brain stroke are because of ischemic stroke 2nd commonest causes brain hemorrhage in which artrey supplying to interior gets rupture that is known as brain hemmorage and 15% of patients of brain strokes but how to identify stroke what are the symptoms of brain stroke there are 5 ways in which a brain stroke patient can present.

Number one Sudden weakness and numbness of one part of the body sudden weakness of and one side of the line side of the leg number 2 sudden speech disturbance inability to speak difficulty in in what generation sudden inability to understand so the person may appear confused and is not be able to understand her speak what is being asked when so this is the second commonest presentation sudden inability to see from one or both the eyes number 4 disturbance in balance sudden walking difficulty Achanak Kisi Ko chalne mein dikkat ho jana Apna balance Banane mein dikkat ho jana Yeh Bhi brain stroke symptoms ho sakta hai.

What is commonest presentation is sudden unexplained headache achanak sir dard ho jiska pehle kabhi Koi karan woh bhi brain stroke ki wajah se ho sakta hai yeah 5 main symptoms hote hain jis tarah brain stroke present kar sakta hai uska khayal rakhna chahiye agar kisi ko brain stroke hua aur ye 5 symptoms mein se ek symptom hota hai toh hame kya karna chahiye now stroke is an emergency if an artery gets blocked every minute millions of cells die and later the treatment the more the cell death happens therefore it is an emergency time is brain so earlier the treatment better is the outcome so what are the treatment options now there is a treatment called clot busting treatment which is known as thrombolytic therapy which can be started in first four and half hours kisiko kabhi agar kisi Ko brain stroke hua hai aur woh 4 ghante ke undergo hospital 5 star hai aise centre mein jahan pe stroke care ki facility to wahan pe CT karane ke baad brain mein koi bleeding ya leakage nahi hai brain hemorrhage nahi hai to aise patients mein jisko hum estimate stroke kehte hain SAP SAT score thrombotic treatments se thik kiya ja sakta hai.

Yeh treatment hum sade char ghante ke andar jata hai aur jitna jaldi de diya jaan sake aisa nahi ki sade char ghante ka cutoff hai tu sade char ghante ke andar jisko bhi humne treatment denge usko fibre jyada hoga kitni jaldi yeh treatment denge utna fayda hoga better outcome tu hai sabse aasan aur accha treatment hai aur hum usko de sakte hain dusra treatment hai jisko hum mechanical thrombectomy kehte hain Jockey 6 ghante ke andar diya ja sakta hai jis ke dwara tar dwara angiography kiya jata hai konsi artery kis jagah pe blockage hai woh dekha jata hai ayush jagah se clot ko extract kar liya jata hai ek retrievable stand dwara toh usko hum mechanical thrombectomy kehte hain isme best result jitni jaldi kiya ja sake usse better response aata hai.

Pahale Chaar ghante ke andar sabse accha response Aata Hai lekin kuch selected patient score MRI ya CT perfusion dwara select Karke Hum 24 ghante ke andar Yeh ilaj kar sakte hain now if you want to know detail about what is brain stroke best way in which we can treat the patients of brain stroke it is better to come to my clinic which is Kumar neurology centre located at Mahagun mansion market at Indirapuram you can come over you can discuss in detail about what is brain stroke how we can fight successfully from this life threatning disease.

Parkinson's Disease - Know What's It's All About

Parkinson's Disease - Know What's It's All About

Parkinson’s disease adversely affects the way you move, as it is a neurodegenerative disorder. This happens when there are problems with certain nerve cells in the brain. These nerve cells produce an important chemical called Dopamine, which in turn sends signals to the region of our brain that takes care of the movement. This chemical help muscles to function smoothly and allow in carrying out one’s daily activities. When somebody is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, the nerve cells break down, thus hampering movements of limbs.

What Causes This Disease?

Over the years, a lot of research has taken place to find out the exact reasons due to which people get affected by Parkinson’s disease but till now neither scientists nor doctors have been able to come up with any solution. They are thinking on the lines of aging or hAarmful chemicals in the environment, to be possible causes for this neurological problem. Sometimes researchers even feel that this could be a hereditary problem but there is no concrete evidence to substantiate this statement.

Symptoms Of Parkinson’s

As discussed earlier, Parkinson’s occur in aged individuals, when nerve cells break down, when the chemical called Dopamine is no longer able to send signals to the brain. You can easily recognize Parkinson’s disease in any of your family members, if you come across certain symptoms, which are generally four of them:

  • Trembling or shaking of limbs and these tremors can affect different body parts like, hands, arms and legs.
  • Muscles become stiff, due to which it becomes tough for the affected individuals to move their limbs freely.
  • Due to stiffness of muscles, movement becomes slow and thus each and every activity of theirs takes much more time than usual.
  • People are unable to keep their balance and walk freely without any hindrance.
  • Generally, tremor is the first thing you would notice in a person and thus instantly get to know that the person might be suffering from Parkinson’s.
  • Problems of constipation or facing difficult in swallowing tend to happen as the disease goes on to affect all the muscles in one’s body.
  • During the latter stages, someone who has Parkinson’s, might well have a blank expression to the face with problems being faced while trying to speak and other related issues. The symptoms of this disease usually start for people aged between 50 and 60 but at times, it can even crop up at an earlier stage.

Preventive Measures And Treatment

Let’s take a look at how you can prevent yourself from getting crippled by Parkinson’s Disease.

Unfortunately, as the disease is mostly age related, so after attaining the age of 60, if not from 50, there would be very few individuals who would not be the victims of Parkinson’s.

Research has revealed that having less of dairy and red meat and consuming more of fruits, vegetables and high-fibre foods, thus maintaining a healthy diet, can protect people from the dreaded disease.

Dementia - 10 Tips For A Caregiver!

Dementia - 10 Tips For A Caregiver!

When you are a caregiver to a patient suffering from dementia, things can get pretty tough. Improving your communication skills will help you in maintaining a steady relationship with the patient. Your loved ones need you the most in this troubled time and you can follow these tips to provide your support for a dementia patient.

  1. Create a positive atmosphere for interaction: Your body language and your approach, speaks a lot. So try to create a positive space for you and your loved one to interact in. Be pleasant and respectful and suppress your irritation and any kind of negativity.
  2. Get the patient’s attention: Try to cut off any kind of noise and distraction while you are speaking to the patient. Try to attract the attention and address him/her by their name. Identify yourself thoroughly and keep the communication strong so as to hold their attention.
  3. Convey your message clearly: Avoid any complex language and jargons when you are communicating. Use simple words and sentences coupled with slow and distinct enunciation. Do not raise your voice, as it may startle the patient; rather keep your voice soothing.
  4. Stick to simple and understandable questions: You should ask questions that can be answered in a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’. It’s best not to ask any open-ended questions. Also, stick to one question at a time.
  5. Open your heart, eyes and ears to the patient: Gather all your patience while conversing with your loved one. Try to understand them rather than listening to them. You can suggest words, prompt a reply or a feeling may be.
  6. Assist in daily physical activities: Help your loved one to carry on with their life. Encourage them to do something that they may love. Remind them of each step on what to do next if they forget.
  7. Be engaged at an emotional level: Your loved one may get agitated or upset and you need to distract and redirect them. In order to do this, you have to connect at an emotional level with the patient.
  8. An affectionate response is essential: As patients often feel confused and anxious, it is essential that you respond to them affectionately and reassure them of the comfort and support that you are ready to provide.
  9. Remembering the old days: In most cases, a dementia patient won’t remember what happened a few hours back, but they hold a vivid memory of the old days. Try to pluck at them as that will keep your loved one engaged and active.
  10. Sense of humor: Use a sense of humor as it helps your loved one to laugh along with you and be there in the moment.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Brain Cancer - Know About Its Stages And Treatments!

Brain Cancer - Know About Its Stages And Treatments!

Like most other organs of the human body, the brain too is susceptible to cancer. Brain cancer is typically the result of abnormal growth of primary brain cells or the spreading of cancer cells that originated in another organ of the body. This is known as secondary or metastatic brain cancer. Depending on the stage it is diagnosed in, brain cancer can be cured. Let’s take a closer look at primary brain cancer.

Primary brain cancer or the development of tumours in the brain is fairly uncommon. However, they may attack children and adults alike. There are many different types of brain tumours. Their names depend on the part of the brain affected or the type of cell they originate from. The most common types of brain tumors are meningiomas, gliomas, pituitary adenomas, primary CNS lymphomas, vestibular schwannomas and medulloblastomas. Each of these tumors grows at a different rate and causes different symptoms. However, they can all be graded on the same stages.

Stage 1
In this stage, the cell growth is usually very slow. These cells look very similar to normal brain cells and the tissue is benign.

Stage 2
When cancer reaches this stage, the cells begin to grow at a faster pace and look a little different from normal brain cells. The tissue also turns malignant at this point.

Stage 3
The abnormal cells or tumor begins to grow actively and take on a completely different look as compared to normal brain cells. These calls may also be termed as anaplastic.

Stage 4
This is the most aggressive stage of brain cancer. At this stage, the cells begin to grow at a very fast rate.

Treatment for brain cancer depends on a number of factors including the size of the tumor, cancer stage, patient’s overall health, age and any other medical issues that may be present. Brain cancer can be treated with drugs, surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Two or more of these forms of treatment are usually used together for faster and better results.

Whenever possible, a doctor will try to remove the tumor surgically. This may be preceded by drugs to prevent seizures and relieve swelling in the brain. Patients who cannot undergo surgery may be given radiation instead. This form of therapy uses high energy rays to kill the cancer cells. Radiation may also be used after surgery to kill any abnormal cells that could not be removed surgically. Radiation for brain cancer may be given externally or internally. Chemotherapy can also be used to treat brain cancer. This involves delivering medication orally or intravenously to kill the tumors. Each cycle of chemotherapy usually lasts a few weeks and is followed by a rest period. The results of chemotherapy are usually visible after 2 or 4 cycles.

If it is on the anterolateral aspect of your thigh, it can be due to a nerve entrapment which can be treated, hence consult a neurologist.

Tourette's Syndrome - Let The 'Hichki' Not Be A Hitch To A Successful Career!

Tourette's Syndrome - Let The 'Hichki' Not Be A Hitch To A Successful Career!

Let’s face it! Nothing gets us more excited than watching a character who faces several roadblocks, fights several hurdles to help underprivileged children become part of society. This movie “Hichki” is about a young woman who suffers from Tourette’s syndrome and fights against all odds to become the teacher she always knew she wanted to be.

Providing viewers with a wonderful story about the roller coaster of emotions that the protagonist goes through, the makers put the focus on Tourette’s syndrome, the stigma associated with it and the emotions of a person suffering from it goes through. While coming to terms with such a syndrome is one’s struggle, the uphill task is to get people around them to accept it!

Understanding What Is Tourette’s Syndrome

Tourette’s syndrome is attributed to involuntary and repetitive movements and sounds produced in a body. These are uncontrollable actions and at present approximately 1 million people in India suffer from this syndrome. It is neurological problem, first diagnosed by Dr. Georges Gilles De La Tourette in 1885 in a 86-year old French woman.

It is a chronic condition where symptoms can occur as early as in a 3-years old. While the most severe symptoms are presented in the teen years, most of these symptoms improve during the late teens and into adulthood.

Symptoms:

Generally, the involuntary movements also known as tics are classified as simple and complex.

  1. Simple: As far as the basic version of this condition is concerned, you will find that it is limited to sudden and jerky movements associated with certain muscle groups. For instance, the simple tics include eye blinking, shrugging, facial grimacing, and vocalizations. The vocalization can be in form of grunting, sniffling or throat clearing where the condition is mild.

  2. Complex: The motor tics in the complex version of this condition may include head twists, violent shoulder shrugs, hops, bending, twisting or even touching objects. As far as the vocalizations go, it may include words and phrases while the dramatic symptoms may present the person using cuss words as well.

Implications and Treatment:

One positive thing associated with this syndrome is that it doesn’t cause an impairment and therefore there is no medication prescribed for it. Tourette’s syndrome does not affect one’s intelligence and hence it need not stop people from seeking a career of their choice.

However, the biggest concern of people affected by it is the social acceptance of their condition.

Also, those who are suffering from it must be provided with an ideal, tolerant and compassionate set-up where they are encouraged to work and learn to their full potential.

Further, as tic symptoms often do not cause an impairment, a majority of people suffering from it do not require any medication for tic suppression. However, effective medications are available for those whose symptoms interfere with their day-to-day functioning. Neuroleptics (drugs that may be used to treat psychotic and non-psychotic disorders) are the most consistently useful medications for tic suppression.

'Hichki' is a thought-provoking story about a young girl suffering from Tourette’s Syndrome who dreams of becoming a teacher. She faces the challenge head-on, triumphs her way into our hearts!"
