World Stroke Day: Be Greater Than Stroke and Take Action
World Stroke Day, observed on 29th October each year, is a crucial reminder of the global impact of stroke. This day serves as a wake-up call for individuals, healthcare providers, and communities to raise awareness about stroke prevention and treatment. In support of World Stroke Day, Artemis Hospitals in Gurugram is offering special discounts on doctor's consultations and diagnostic tests until 27th November 2023. The theme for this year is "Be #GreaterThan Stroke," emphasizing the importance of acting swiftly when stroke strikes.
Understanding the Importance of World Stroke Day:
Strokes, often referred to as brain attacks, are a leading cause of disability and death worldwide. In India, approximately 1.8 million people suffer from strokes each year. The consequences can be devastating, affecting a person's ability to move, speak, and even think. It's a public health concern that demands immediate attention.
Be #GreaterThan Stroke:
This year's World Stroke Day campaign, "Be GreaterThan Stroke," is a call to action for everyone. The key message is to act swiftly when a stroke occurs because time is of the essence. Stroke can lead to severe damage if not treated promptly. The tagline emphasizes the need for proactive measures and quick decision-making to overcome this life-threatening condition.
Prevention: The Key to Reducing Stroke Incidence:
One of the most powerful facts about stroke is that 80% of all strokes are preventable. Understanding the risk factors and taking necessary precautions can significantly reduce the likelihood of experiencing a stroke. These risk factors include high blood pressure, smoking, poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption, and physical inactivity. By addressing these risk factors, you can take control of your health and reduce the risk of stroke.
To encourage people to take their health seriously and act against stroke, Artemis Hospitals is offering discounted services until 27th November 2023:
1. 20% Doctor's Consultation: Expert consultations are available at a 20% discount. This is an excellent opportunity to discuss your health concerns with specialists who can provide guidance on stroke prevention.
2. 15% Diagnostic Tests & CT/MRI: Early diagnosis is crucial in stroke management. Artemis Hospitals is providing a 15% discount on diagnostic tests and CT/MRI scans. Timely detection can make a significant difference in the treatment outcome.
Why Neurointerventional Surgery Matters:
While prevention is essential, it's equally important to be prepared for any situation. Neurointerventional surgery is a critical aspect of stroke treatment, particularly for those who have suffered a severe stroke. This surgical procedure involves the use of minimally invasive techniques to repair damaged blood vessels in the brain. It can prevent further brain damage and improve the chances of recovery.
