The Importance of the Stoke Medical Photo ID Card

What is a Stroke?

A stroke is a medical emergency that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. Brain cells begin to die in minutes. A stroke can cause lasting brain damage, long-term disability, or even death. It's crucial to know the symptoms and to act fast.

Symptoms of a Stroke

Recognising a stroke quickly can be life-saving. The main symptoms can be remembered with the word F.A.S.T.:

  • Face – The face may have dropped on one side, and the person may not be able to smile.
  • Arms – There may be weakness or numbness in one arm.
  • Speech – Speech may be slurred or garbled.
  • Time – It's time to call emergency services immediately if you notice any of these signs.

Other symptoms include problems with balance and coordination, dizziness, severe headache, and problems with eyesight in one or both eyes.

After a Stroke

Post-stroke effects vary depending on the part of the brain affected and the amount of tissue damaged. Some people may recover completely, while others might have long-term or lifelong disabilities. These can include paralysis or loss of muscle movement, difficulty talking or swallowing, memory loss or thinking difficulties, emotional problems, and changes in behaviour.
