UAE NEWS: The Abu Dhabi expat survives a stroke

Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) offers new hope to patients by providing the latest medical advances in side care. Seha said many cases of cerebral palsy have been successfully treated, helping patients return to normal.

One such incident is Babic, a Bosnian engineer who came to Tawam Hospital with severe symptoms. She had felt her blood pressure drop and she felt dizzy and general tired.

After a CT scan, internal bleeding was detected. To diagnose the patient more accurately, a comprehensive CT angiography was later performed, which revealed that Babic suffered a stroke caused by a blockage in his left artery.

After the examination, he was transferred to Tawam Hospital’s Interventional Radiology Department where he was admitted undergoing general surgery. Catheterization is performed on the patient’s leg to allow access to the female artery. The clots are then successfully removed from the central left brain.

Dr Jamal Aldeen AlKoteesh, head of radiology and radiology intervention counselor at Tawam Hospital, said: high-quality international. ”

He added: “This procedure is necessary to bring the best results to patients as traditional medicine does not work in all cases, especially if the patient arrives three hours or more after having symptoms or if he has had a stroke while asleep. At that time, the only solution would be to remove a blood clot by catheterization. ”

The patient was discharged days after the procedure and was in stable condition. He expressed his gratitude to the Seha medical team at Tawam Hospital for his treatment.

Commenting on the recovery of stroke patients, Dr Hala Abuzeid, a critical care specialist and head of the Intensive Care Unit at Tawam Hospital, said: “Tawam Hospital has treated many patients with a stroke. After the cerebral catheterization process, the patient is referred to our Intensive Care Unit (ICU), where they are monitored. The patient is then given the necessary care to try to recover as much of the stroke as possible. ”

At the World Stroke Day event, which is celebrated on October 29 every year, Dr. Hala stressed that stroke can be prevented by following a few simple steps.

To reduce your risk, it is highly recommended to exercise 5 times a week, eat a healthy diet, lower blood cholesterol, maintain a healthy weight, quit smoking, and manage stress and depression.

How do you know if you have a stroke?

The easiest way to find out if you have a stroke is to use the BE FAST method – Balance, Eyes, Face, Arms, Speech, and Time.

If someone has lost their balance (lack of muscle control, difficulty walking and NOT dizziness); if someone is visually impaired or visually impaired in both eyes; if a person cannot smile on one side of his face, this may indicate hemiplegia; if a person has a weakness in the arm or leg, he or she may suffer a stroke; if the other person’s speech is vague and inconsistent, this indicates a verbal disturbance; and finally, if a patient suffers from any of these symptoms, it is time to call an ambulance immediately.
