Remember the ” BEFAST ” Judgment
#Fang Yan , a well-known expert in neurology, reminded #
A stroke can instantly turn a healthy person into a disabled person and destroy a happy family. In a sense, intravenous thrombolysis and thrombectomy for suitable patients is a chance for the patient and his family to be reborn.
Once there are signs of suspected stroke (remember the “BEFAST” judgment method), go to a hospital with comprehensive stroke treatment capabilities as soon as possible.
“B” means balance, loss of balance or coordination, sudden onset of difficulty walking;
“E” means Eyes, sudden changes in vision, difficulty seeing;
“F” refers to the face (Face), the face is asymmetrical, and the corners of the mouth are skewed;
“A” refers to the arm (Arms), a sudden weakness or numbness in the arm, usually on one side of the body;
“S” refers to speech, which is slurred and unable to understand other people’s language;
“T” refers to the time (Time), the above symptoms suggest that a stroke may occur, do not wait for the symptoms to disappear on their own, and immediately call “120” for medical assistance.
unlike most diseases
The time window for intravenous thrombolysis is only 4.5 hours
The longest time window for thrombectomy is only 24 hours.
For other diseases, you can go to other hospitals to find other doctors for treatment, and most patients have only one chance to go to the doctor for thrombolysis and thrombectomy.
Therefore, stroke treatment must be as soon as possible !
