Stroke and heart attack occur most in winter so let's learn the basic information from the following quiz.
Q1. What disease are both stroke and heart attack (myocardial infarction)?
A1. They are blood vessels’ diseases.
Q2. What is clogged when myocardial infarction and cerebral infarction occur?
(A) Cholesterol (B) Blood clots
A2. (B) Blood clots
A blood clot is something similar to congealed nosebleed, formed in the blood vessel. The cells in our body can work with oxygen and nutrition from the blood vessels. If the blood vessels which are passages to deliver oxygen and nutrition are clogged by blood clots, the cells die because the required energy is not delivered.
Q3. How long will it be if all the blood vessels are connected?
A3. About 100000 km (about 62000 miles) (distance of earth 2.5 rounds)
For example, if there is a road of earth 2.5 rounds, it is not so unusual that there is a traffic jam or an accident somewhere. Similarly, it is not a surprise that a blood clot happens in the blood vessels at any moment.
Q4. When you have stroke or myocardial infarction, there are subjective symptoms.
(A) True (B) False
A4. (B) False
There are signs but no obvious subjective symptoms. So people feel it suddenly occurred.
The sign of heart attack is such as when you climb up stairs, you feel pressure and pain in your chest.
The sign of stroke is such as temporary tingling sensation in your hands and feet or speaking inarticulately.
