CVA- Cerebro vascular Accident-Hemiplegia-Sign-symptoms

What is CVA? Is it a disease?

occurs inside the brain. Its effect is observed around the body through paralysis.

What happens inside the brain?

It occurs due to short supply of Oxygen to the brain cell. Short supply takes place due to hemorrhage (arterial breakage) or infarction caused by embolism (arterial blockage) or ischemia of artery (narrowing). Due to short supply of Oxygen a sudden death of brain cells takes place. Subsequently they lose their function and command over the peripheral nervous system. Also the spilled blood gets accumulated in the brain and creates pressure on brain cell. Commonly this is called stroke. The doctors call it CVA- Cerebro vascular Accident.

What happens in the body? 

Patient loses his consciousness. Some or many part of the body lose their function. Either one limb (mono plegia) or two limbs (hemi plegia or para plegia) or all four limbs (quadri plegia) lose their function. The face may get deviated to one side. The clenching power of teeth, squeezing power of eye, blowing power of mouth come down. Speech gets impaired. Uncontrolled salivation, urination, bowel insufficiency are also observed.

What happens in the mind?

Patient goes hysteric or emotional. He forgets many things temporarily. He cannot identify his children, recall their name, the ATM pass word, his date of birth etc. He recollects his good time, compares with presence and becomes sad. He seeks the presence of all the nears and dears. He cries, sheds tear. He gets angry with little wrong reason.

Don’t waste time

After the patient gets discharged from the modern medicine hospital he should be shifted to the Ayurvedic hospital for treatment. The Ayurvedic treatment for CVA includes many treatment programes like Medicine, Pancha karma treatment, Yoga and Exercise. Out of these Panchakarma plays a vital role in the management of CVA. The earlier the patient takes the pancha karma treatment the better he gets the result.

Treatment for a Cerebrovascular Accident

Treatment for stroke depends on the type of stroke you’ve had. The goal of treatment for ischemic stroke, for instance, is to restore the blood flow. Treatments for hemorrhagic stroke are aimed at controlling the bleeding.

Ischemic stroke treatment

To treat an ischemic stroke, you may be given a clot-dissolving drug or a blood thinner. You may also be given aspirin to prevent a second stroke. Emergency treatment for this type of stroke may include injecting medicine into the brain or removing a blockage with a procedure.

Hemorrhagic stroke treatment

For a hemorrhagic stroke, you may be given a drug that lowers the pressure in your brain caused by the bleeding. If the bleeding is severe, you may need surgery to remove excess blood. It’s also possible that you will need surgery to repair the ruptured blood vessel.
