Cerebral infarction may not even be recognized by yourself. Then it would be important to have another person nearby who can test for symptoms of a suspected stroke. If you suspect another cerebral infarction, ask the person:
raise arms (symptom of weakness or numbness of hands or feet)
repeat a simple sentence (symptom of slurred speech or difficulty speaking)
to smile (symptom of a hanging mouth game or a one-sided smile)
If the above functions cannot be performed by the person, the emergency number must be called immediately. In the case of a cerebral infarction, dissolution therapy should be initiated as soon as possible. The sooner treatment is started, the greater the benefits.
The hospital is the first to determine if there is a cerebral infarction, as cerebral infarction and cerebral hemorrhage can cause similar symptoms. With brain imaging studies, they can be distinguished from each other. In addition, other studies are being conducted to find out the cause of the stroke.
