World Stroke Day - #45in Explore
This one is all about hidden depths. I first planned a photo like this for the scavenger hunt (scorpio's apparently have 'hidden depths') but then saw Ullispain's post this morning so I've adapted it. I've seen first hand how people are trapped inside their own bodies after a stroke. Stroke is a major cause of long term disabilities and premature death Stroke occurs when a vessel that brings blood to the brain bursts or is clogged by a blood clot. With today’s unhealthy lifestyles and numerous health issues such as high blood pressure, physical inactivity, smoking, alcohol overuse, stroke has grown to be an epidemic all over the world. Stroke accounts for 5.7 million deaths each year worldwide and ranks second to ischemic heart disease as a cause of death. It is also a leading cause of serious disability, sparing no age, sex, ethnic origin, or country. The theme of the World Stroke Day 2009: “Stroke?What can I do?” This question implies that everyone can do something about stroke, whether it is on an individual or group level. If you notice one or more of these signs, don't wait. Stroke is a medical emergency. Call your emergency medical services and get to a hospital right away! Learn the warning signs of stroke. •Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body •Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding •Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes •Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination •Sudden, severe headache with no known cause Take action in an emergency. •Not all the warning signs occur in every stroke. Don't ignore signs of stroke, even if they go away! •Check the time. When did the first warning sign or symptom start? You'll be asked this important question later. •If you have one or more stroke symptoms that last more than a few minutes, don't delay! Seek immediate medical attention! •If you're with someone who may be having stroke symptoms, immediately call one of the emergency rescue service numbers. Expect the person to protest — denial is common. Don't take "no" for an answer. Insist on taking prompt action. The FAST test You can use the FAST test to remember the signs of stroke it involves asking three simple questions: •Face – Can the person smile, has their mouth drooped? •Arms – Can the person raise both arms? •Speech – Can the person speak clearly and understand what you say? •Time – Act FAST!
