Actions to take during an acute stroke
In contrast to many other medical conditions, there isn’t much scope for first aid involvement when dealing with an acute stroke. The most crucial step is to promptly recognise the symptoms and swiftly bring the patient to a medical facility for necessary treatment. Time should not be wasted. Even if you’re not completely certain whether the person is experiencing a stroke, it’s better to practice caution once you observe any symptoms or signs of a stroke.
Once at the hospital, the emergency physicians will typically recommend a scan, such as a CT scan or an MRI. The neurologist will assess the situation and determine whether the patient requires treatment such as thrombolytic injection.
