Home/ events and updates/ World Stroke Day

Stroke Ready Hospital:

Stroke is preventable & treatable if you act fast. Stroke occurs to one person every 40 seconds around the world. One in six people have life time risk of getting a stroke. Prevention consists of taking care of all the risk factors i.e. high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes & smoking.


Symptoms of Stroke recognition:

Remember the phrase “BEFAST”

B: Balance: Sudden loss of balance.

E: Eyes: Any sudden vision impairment.

F: Face: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of face droop?

A: Arms: Ask the patient to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downwards?

S: Speech: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange?

T: Time: Act Immediately. Time lost is brain lost.


Golden Hour Emergency Services:

Acute Stroke treatment can be done only in “golden hours” (4 -6 hours from onset of symptoms).

Sir H.N. Reliance foundation hospital & Research Centre is a Stroke Ready Hospital & follows international protocol for stroke management. The CT scan facility is located in the EMS itself that saves the Door-to-Needle (DTN) time i.e. time required from arrival to administration of the clots bursting drug. We have successfully achieved the DTN time of 45-60 mins in our hospital. The number needed to treat (NNT) for stroke thrombolysis in order to save one life or to make a person lead a normal life is 14. The earlier one administers the drug the NNT comes down significantly. Every minute wasted in not administrating the clot bursting drug the patient loses 1.9 million neurons & ages by 3.1 weeks.

20-30 % of patients have large vessel occlusion (LVO) requiring endovascular treatment (EVT). Sir H.N. Reliance foundation hospital & Research Centre has a special Angio suite only for Neurointervention purposes, hence EVT can be done 24X7.
