Recently, 53-year-old Ms. Li suddenly felt dizzy, headache and nausea and vomiting while doing housework at night. Then she became unconscious and fell to the ground. Her family hurriedly called 120 to take her to the Fourth Hospital of Changsha. After three days of emergency rescue, the patient finally turned to danger. Since the beginning of winter, the Department of Neurology of the hospital has admitted many patients with cerebral hemorrhage. Experts remind that cold weather can easily cause cerebral hemorrhage, and young people cannot take it lightly.
According to Yu Huiyun, chief physician of the Department of Neurology, the Fourth Hospital of Changsha City, the main causes of cerebral hemorrhage are sharp cold, physical activity, emotional excitement, forced defecation, etc. Those with hypertension and arteriosclerosis are prone to disease. Many people think that cerebral hemorrhage is a disease of the elderly. Nowadays, unhealthy eating habits, prolonged staying up late, smoking and alcohol, etc. promote blood pressure and vascular sclerosis, and there are not a few young people who cause cerebral hemorrhage.
Yu Huiyun reminded that headaches, disturbances of consciousness, sudden invisibility, sudden speechlessness, frequent coughing when drinking water or eating, etc., could all be signs of cerebral hemorrhage. Once such symptoms occur, dial 120 to the nearest hospital for treatment.
The key to preventing cerebral hemorrhage is to control blood pressure. Adults should monitor their blood pressure and understand their blood pressure. Patients with hypertension should adhere to medication and long-term monitoring under the guidance of a doctor. When blood pressure control is not ideal, they should adjust the medication in a timely manner under the guidance of a doctor; keep warm to prevent colds from getting cold; keep the stool open and prevent excessive force during defecation; Abstain from alcohol, eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, work and rest on time to prevent emotional excitement; those with conditions can go to the hospital for screening of cerebral angiography to eliminate high-risk factors.
