Stroke is potentially preventable: World Stroke Organization
World Stroke Day (WSD), observed on October 29, is meant to raise awareness about the serious nature of stroke; its prevention and treatment as well as ensuring a better care and support for survivors.

WSD was established in 2006 by the World Stroke Organization (WSO) that coordinates campaigns for advocacy, policy, and outreach to mobilize better support for health care for stroke victims. It is said that Stroke is the forth leading cause of death. The more common is ischemic stroke, which is caused by a blood clot in the brain.

According to Vladimir Hachinski, associated with WSO, stroke and potentially preventable dementias are the leading causes of serious disability, sparing no age, sex, ethnic origin, or country.

According to medical science, strokes happen when blood flow to the brain stops making brain cells with in a few minute. Therefore stroke is said to be a case of medical emergency.

A healthly and stress-free life style is recommended to reduce the risk of stroke. Doctors hold that atrial fibrillation, a form of irregular heartbeat, can also cause clots to form in the heart that later travel to the brain, producing a stroke. Therefore, a trial fibrillation should be taken seriously and doctor should be consulted.

To get some relief from the atrial fibrillation, blood thinners like aspirin or warfarin are recommended to reduce your stroke risk, but do consult your doctor who can treat in time.

With the advances in nano-technology, the ethical issues related to its use medicines are being debated about. The need is being expressed about the development and monitoring of a responsible nanotechnology.
