These conditions harm your heart, making the heart muscle hardened or thick. The harmed muscle either can't unwind appropriately to let the pumping assemblies of the heart, the ventricles, load with enough blood, or it can't contract legitimately to give the ventricles a chance to pump sufficiently out blood. The left ventricle is the primary pumping chamber, and heart failure normally begins on the left side. At the point when the left ventricle can't contract enough, it is called systolic heart failure. At the point when the left ventricle can't load with enough blood, it is called diastolic heart failure.
An ischemic stroke is usually characterized by a reduction or obstruction of blood supply to the brain due to blocked blood vessels caused by atherosclerosis or a blood clot. Up to twelve percent of ischemic strokes often cause death within thirty days and is among the largest health burdens in developed countries. It is worth noting that the epidemiology of stroke has been changing because of several factors, with the most important being an ageing population, as well as advancements in the treatment of the condition. Stroke prevalence is projected to increase globally as the population of individuals aged above sixty-five years augments (Ovbiagele et al., 2013, p. 2363). Ovbiagele et al.
Outcome 1 Know what a stroke is 1.1 Identify the changes in the brain associated with stroke Heart attacks and strokes are usually due to cardiovascular disease, a condition featuring body-wide damage to the delicate lining of the arteries the tubes that carry oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to all the organs, tissues and cells in your body and to the brain. The psychological, behavioural and emotional changes that take place after a stroke are part caused by physical damage to the brain. When the brain cells are damaged the sensations and parts of the body controlled by the cells can no longer function properly. This usually affects the left hand side of the body. But I personally have seen someone who has had a stroke and it has
Left side failure is the most common failure which leads to fluids backing up in your lungs leading to shortness of breath. Right side failure leads to swelling in your feet and legs. There are several factors that can lead to congestive heart failure, CAD, hypertension, myocarditis, myocardial infarction, congenital heart defect diabetes. African descent is more likely have heart failure and to die from it.Heart failure can be chronic or acute. Chronic heart failure means ongoing, acute means it started suddenly.
Describe the mechanism(s) by which strokes occur. Cerebrovascular Accident- condition in which brain tissue is deprived of blood supply. The most common stroke symptoms are: • Numbness or weakness (paresis) of the face, arm, or leg, sometimes only on one side; • Confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech (aphasia) • Trouble seeing • Trouble walking or dizziness; loss of balance or coordination (ataxia) • Severe headache with no known cause 1. Ischemic stroke (~83%)- blood vessel supplying brain tissue is blocked by a blood clot a. cerebral thrombus b. cerebral embolism 2. Hemorrhagic stroke (~17%)- A blood vessel breaks open, causing blood to leak into the brain 3.
A lack of oxygen and glucose flowing to the brain leads to the death of brain cells and brain damage, often resulting in impairment in speech, movement, and memory. The two main types of stroke include ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. Ischemic stroke accounts for about 75% of all strokes and occurs when a blood clot, or thrombus, forms that blocks blood flow to part of the brain. A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel on the brain's surface ruptures and fills the space between the brain and skull with or when an artery in the brain bursts and fills the surrounding tissue with blood. The blood supply to the brain is very important.
A stroke is sometimes called a “brain attack” and is the result from a sudden loss of blood to the brain or blockage of blood vessel to the brain, which sometimes may be permanent or temporary. There are two types of strokes, thrombotic and hemorrhagic. The thrombotic stroke is when one vessel that feeds the brain is blocked. The hemorrhagic stroke is when one vessel in brain breaks open. Aneurysms are the most common of the hemorrhagic strokes.
“Meth causes the blood vessels to constrict; it cuts off the steady flow of blood to all parts of the body. Heavy usage can weaken and destroy these vessels, causing tissues to become prone to damage and inhibiting the body's ability to repair itself.” (Visible Signs, paragraph 1) A really big appearance change that happens when using this drug is the aging process. The body loses the elasticity and luster that causes you to look young in such a short amount of time. Another really bad thing that can happen to your body with all the Methamphetamine use is the hygiene of the mouth. “The drug causes the salivary glands to dry out, which allows the mouth's acids to eat away at the tooth enamel, causing cavities.” (Meth Mouth, second
PS124: Introduction to Psychology June 30, 2014 The disorder of the brain that I am interested in is a stroke. Stroke affects more than just the brain as well. A stroke occurs when blood flow to part of the brain is suddenly interrupted or when blood vessel in the brain bursts. Brain cells need oxygen and they die when they no longer receive oxygen and nutrients from blood. When your brain cells die from a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain are lost.
Unit 4222-668 Stroke Awareness 1.1 A stroke is a serious condition which happens when he blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts. It can also be causes by a clot on the brain, but can also be caused by a clot that can travel to the brain through the blood vessels. When oxygen and nutrients from the blood being supplied to the brain are studied stopped then brain cells begin to die and thus stops the brain from working properly. 1.2 Sometimes a stroke can be miss diagnosed or delayed as it starts mild or of a non normal sign or symptom of a stroke. Some of these can be: * Diabetic Hypoglycaemia * Bells Palsy * Migraine Headache * Intracranial Tumour/Abscess * Epilepsy * Some infections such as septicaemia, encephalitis * MS * FND In my role I have seen a couple of occasions when a service user has been miss diagnosed.
