Cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction, or stroke

Updated on July 24, 2013

What is a stroke and what effect it has on the patient and the family

This lens is it about a cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction or stroke

These are experiences I have gained through my mother has suffered a stroke back 4 years.

The hospitalization period, rehabilitation and the slow but sure still improving conditions even after 4 years.

My mother called me but I could understand it's hardly any hair resembled murmur of a child who almost cannot talk.

By enormous efforts in me I understood something totally was wrong and get immediate someone who lived 5 minutes away called they just went to see what was going on, I myself live on more than one hour by car from my mother, but because I cannot drive takes at least 3 to 4 hours before I can be with her.

This person called the alarm line and so my mother is transported with wailing sirens to the hospital,

my mother never want to burden someone but the ambulance had to stand still in the middle of an intersection because they have to place an extra infusion now all traffic was up because the ambulance stood in the way.

When she arrived at the hospital there have been many studies and she ended up in the intensive care unit , where she survived seven pneumonias, although a few times it was critical , a few times we have been called and have to rush to the hospital and we had a few conversations you rather not have not to have, and put your mother to sleep. Luckily she has a strong will to survive and is still with us.

After a long period of rehabilitation in hospital, she eventually transferred to a rehabilitation clinic again reasonably have gotten her going because she could not stay longer and was brought over to another clinic where they continue rehabilitating, by the stroke she could not feed herself because she always choked in her own mucus and then got another pneumonia, therefore it was decided to place an permanent PEG probe

Until 3 months ago, she used this probe, and meanwhile there trying to get my mother back to solid food in the nursing home where she lives now with small steps in the beginning, the food was completely pureiated gepureed and step by step could be what coarser.

The CVA what struck my mother was in her small brains, and she was very lucky for that matter, she can still talk, write and walk a little, but only with a walker, she is in a wheelchair al day because she can no walk larger pieces and may not walk alone, because there is also something of her motor senses damaged, making that she cannot hold herself as she misses the signal when she falls.

This video is in Dutch but the literal translation I have written here in English - Also watch the video, informative animations are shown

The brains are the control center of your body.

Hardly a day goes incentives within that tell you what you feel, see and ruikt.Uw herenen ensure that the body quickly and responds well to these incentives.

At a stroke, the control center and get upset certain parts of your brains too little oxygen. The part of the brains that no oxygen gets dies.

At a stroke can be expressed from an

* Cerebral hemorrhage

* Cerebral infarction

* Or a TIA (Trancient Ismaemic Attack)

In a Brain stroke or TIA is an artery in the brains completed this is due to a clot in the blood or clogging of the artery by atherosclerosis, the underlying area gets little or no oxygen and dies.

Arise signs in a TIA symptoms usually disappear within a few minutes and that within one day.

A TIA therefore also called a transient stroke.

In a stroke creates a tear in the blood vessel or blood vessel bursts open, blood flows into the brain creates a blood accumulation, which exerts pressure on the brain, this becomes damaged.

You can recognize a stroke by a crooked mouth, paralysis of an arm or leg or speech disorders, these symptoms may indicate a lack of oxygen in the brains on the outside can not see what the cause is and how serious the situation is.

It can be either a TIA, stroke already a stroke are, the sooner someone in the hospital sooner the cause is known and the less chance of permanent damage.

Why not wait, call immediately the alarm numer if you experience these symptoms.

Information about infarction, hemorrhage or stroke

cerebral Infarction

A stroke occurs when there is a blockage in a blood vessel is in the brains. Then, a portion of the brains without oxygen and nutrients and of damaging with the result that the die or less change in performance. The popularly stroke also known as a stroke. In 80% of cases of stroke, there is a cerebral infarction.

How is a stroke?

A stroke can be caused by the clogging of an artery clogging hersenen.Dit takes time beslagvan the artery. There is more and more against the vessel wall deposition which eventually leads to that no more blood can be done by. This is called a stroke. It is also possible that a blood clot from the heart goes to the brains and there an artery. The brains are then no more blood and no oxygen .. read more

What is a stroke?

In a stroke there is a tear in a blood vessel. The result is that blood flowing around or in the brains. Because the blood accumulates is pushed aside due to which the brain tissue of the brain tissue damage. The symptoms that follow a stroke are the same as for stroke. A CT scan is the difference clearly demonstrate .. read more

Consequences stroke

For every person that has had a stroke will vary the consequences. The effects are dependent on the location in the brains where the infarct occurs, and how much brain tissue damage. The effects of a stroke, the symptoms that you can find on this page.

How the Body Works - Movement and the Cerebellum

Brains are complex

Subtopics on cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction

Alzheimer, ALS, autism and ADHD

Brains mapping a step closer.

There are no separate brain regions but it is a dynamic entity which hoarse parts work together.


Traditionally brains as a collecting centers seen areas, each with a specific function, such as movement, language or speech, and there are also brain areas involved in a particular function.

Researcher Martijn van den Heuvel working at UMC Utrecht (Netherlands)

thinks that operation of brains mainly comes from the connections between these brain areas.

Characteristics as intelligence or emotion are not in a place in the brains, this goes for schizophrenia that is not located in one area.

Therefore, it is researched compounds in the brains, as these are particularly important for proper brain function.

It's a huge job, because the human brain has about 80 billion neurons, and each neuron has an average of 10 thousand connections, and is a huge network that is not easy charting. .

Development of diseases

The "hubs" in the network are key information points in the brain, and maybe links between different brain areas. "The connections between these points are important to bring. Information in the brains together these compounds bring all the information together.

If there is a fault or blockage may have consequences for the overall functioning of the brains. Takes place by damage to a compound

Research on this road of brains can give new insights , at the emergence of neurological and psychiatric diseases, Zolas ADHD, Alzheimer's, autism, and ALS.

Van den Heuvel suspected cooperation of decentralized points in schizophrenia is not actually together well. the connectome (kind of map of the brains) offers new opportunities to investigate whether there is something disturbed 'in which connections.

Did you know that

The yellow part is the Frontal lobe

The red part is the Parietal lobe

The green part is the Temporal lobe

The dark blue part is the Occipital lobe

The light blue part is the Brain stem

The purple part is the Cerrebellum

CVA means Cerebro Vasculair Accident.

Aneurysm bulge of a blood vessel or vascular malformation

There are three meninges around the brains and partly to the spinal cord

* Directly around the brains is the soft meninges

* Then follows the the arachnoid

* There again outside lies the dura mater

Soft meninges

Pia mater or soft cerebral meninges, it is lying on the structures of the central nervous system.

Cobweb Fleece

This meninges, is located between the hard and the soft meninges.

Dura mater

Is a membrane of connective tissue between parts of the central nervous system and the skull.

Perhaps this is unnecessary information, and you knew all this, but often it is as you've had a stroke there can be a big one to follow and do more harm but of course it is also true that if you've had a severe one there can follow one of several smaller strokes, this need not always be.

If you have had a stroke, you are depending from one day to another on other people to help you, to get back on your feet, it sometimes happenes that there is no thought about what happened to you, if you cannot go to the lavatory on your own any more, there has to come someone to help you and the private piece is taken from you, and that I think is very difficult.
