Specialized care for patients with:
STROKE – Stroke is an acute neurological problem due to problems related with blood circulation. It could be due to blockage of blood vessels or bleeding into brain parenchyma.The symptoms include weakness of any part of body, unsteadiness, difficulty in vision and difficulty in speech. For acute ischemic stroke (due to blockage of blood vessels) it is estimated that around 10 million neurons die in every 10 minutes and hence revascularisation has to be done as early as possible. IV thrombolysis is being given here if stroke onset is within 4.5 hours.
