"The signs of stroke include focal neurological changes such as weakness, aphasia, paralysis, or numbness of a limb. When a person with stroke is admitted to hospital, it is advisable for the patient to be moved from their usual position into a sitting or supine posture, as these positions can reduce their pressure on their brain. In a situation where a stroke is suspected, a patient must be monitored throughout their stay in hospital to identify whether an acute stroke is occurring, and with time, whether the stroke progresses or recurs in any other part of the body." - Anonymous Online Contributor

"In stroke, there are 3 types of recurrent stroke: subacute phase, remission phase, and recurrences of acute phase. Most people do not regain ability to speak in full and do not have full restoration of activities of daily living. Functional remission seems to be achievable, especially in patients with ischemic stroke. At present, the current treatment is not satisfactory, and the rehabilitation should be provided in a more intensive manner." - Anonymous Online Contributor

This suggests that stroke remains a preventable disease. Stroke clinics are not used to see such a patient." - Anonymous Online Contributor
