“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”
― Charles Darwin, The Life & Letters of Charles Darwin
Charles Darwin is absolutely right when he explained how important the value of time is! This makes even more sense for the patients suffering from stroke.
When it comes to successfully minimizing physical and subsequent mental and emotional damage caused by stroke, timing is everything, yet patients and their loved ones experiencing signs of stroke may wait too long before calling for help. Even worse is rushing to a hospital not equipped with immediate care to be given for stroke patients. Time lost is brain lost!
Narrowing of the blood vessel, rupturing of blood vessel or blood clot in blood vessel can cause brain attack or paralysis. Without oxygen and energy brain cannot function. If blood supply to brain is stopped for more than 3-6 hours, death of the brain cells occurs. To avoid the same it is very important to keep regular and uninterrupted blood supply to brain. If brain cells die it causes that portion of the brain to swell and if swelling progresses beyond particular point it causes danger to the life of a person.
