Good morning ladies and gentleman
The honorable lecturer nursing and friends that I love. First of all, the blessing of God we may gather in this place. Before delivering my speech, I would like to introduce my self, My name is Made Udayati. In this opportunity, I would delivering my speech about “Stroke”
Ladies and gentleman, Stroke was the second most frequent cause of death worldwide in 2008. Approximately 9 million people had a stroke in 2008. It is ranked after heart disease and before cancer.
Stroke is the sudden death of brain cells due to a problem with the blood supply. When blood flow to the brain is impaired, oxygen and important nutrients cannot be delivered. The result is injury and then death to brain cells resulting in abnormal brain function. Blood flow to the brain can be disrupted by either a blockage or rupture of an artery to the brain.
There are two major types, embolic or ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic strokes. Stroke by common usage usually refers to the more common embolic or ischemic stroke. These strokes occur from a blood clot that occurs inside the vessel and prevents blood flow to brain. Besides the development of atherosclerotic plaque and high blood pressure.
Other factors increasing the risk of stroke include smoking, diabetes. High homocysteine levels in the blood can also increase the risk of stroke. A clot that cuts off blood flow to a part of the brain is the most common cause. Plaque material or pieces of blood clots that travel to the brain are other common sources.
Overall, the chief cause of strokes are related to hardening of the arteries, which allows fatty deposits to accumulate inside the arteries causing a cascade of injury to the vessel walls eventually leading to clots that form inside the blood vessels. The slow development of atherosclerosis, which decreases blood flow to the brain, results in shrinkage of the brain. A stroke can also result from bleeding or from a busted blood vessel in the brain as the result of high blood pressure.
Ladies and Gentleman, so that I can convey in this opportunity. Love your life before stroke love you. I apologize if my attitude is not pleasing in your hearts. As a finally, thank you for your attention.
