1. Accurate diagnosis is the key to successful treatment.
Why is it important to accurately diagnose a stroke? The nature of stroke - hemorrhage or infarction of the brain to use the eye hard every p'fifth clinical diagnosis by an experienced physician, is erroneous. For example, the doctor takes a brain hemorrhage cerebral infarction and assigns the patient blood thinners. The result is the patient dies only because he was treated improperly.
the Precise diagnosis can only be made during the examination using the computer'computer tomography or MRI. Timely diagnosis is extremely important because emergency measures can significantly reduce the effects of shock.
the Stroke center of the Universal clinic “safeguarding” provides the ability to pass a full diagnostic to exclude or confirm the diagnosis of stroke, and to determine its type (ischemic or hemorrhagic). Diagnosis lasts about 4 hours, and include: mandatory'askofu MRI or MSCT diagnosis of brain, to determine the type of stroke, as well as the localization, a complete set of laboratory tests, ECG and consultation with a neurologist, which is, after all diagnostic procedures gives its opinion and recommendations on how to treat a stroke.
2. Intensive therapy in the acute period.
Acute stroke refers to the urgent conditions and what will be the actions in the first hours and days of “vascular catastrophes” on the fate of the patient, and often his life. Treatment of cerebral stroke in a specialized unit of our clinic provides constant monitoring of vital body functions - breathing, heart activity, kidney, etc. a Stroke is always a powerful stress to the body, aggravates all chronic diseases.

Affects all organs and systems and the need to support their work and to deal with such terrible complications of a stroke as swallowing disorders, leading to severe pneumonia with thrombosis due to immobility of the patient. All this is possible in our center, equipped with modern breathing apparatus, monitors, monitor heart, blood oxygen saturation, blood parameters, etc. in addition, full access to modern diagnostic facilities (CT, MRI, ultrasound of heart, blood vessels, EEG, clinical and biochemical laboratory) allow time to correct the violations and to timely recognize life-threatening complications.
Stroke center of the Universal clinic “charm”, introducing the experience of the best stroke centers in the world, the principle of early mobilization of the patient. This, in turn, means that as soon as all the vital indicators of the patient stabilized, it is possible to raise from his hospital bed and begin early rehabilitation aimed at restoration of disturbed functions and neutralize the effects of stroke. It gives the most positive forecast of recovery of the patient.
How to prevent repeat strokes and further progression of the primary processes (atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, thrombosis, etc.)? The mainstay of medical therapy after a stroke is secondary prevention. First drug therapy after ischemic stroke aims to reduce the coagulation activity of the blood and prevent blood clots, therefore, all patients with ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) should be conducted antiplatelet and / or anticoagulant therapy. In case of detection of hypertension (high blood pressure) in a patient who suffered a stroke in the secondary prevention algorithm adds antihypertensive drugs. Lipid disorders (cholesterol and fractions) are added to the algorithm is the need to use drugs that normalize lipid metabolism of statins. Thus, at least a triad of drugs (antiplatelet agents / anticoagulants, antihypertensives, and statins) constitute the drug treatments after stroke. More patients adhere to doctor's recommendations on taking medication for secondary prevention, the more effective the prevention of recurrent strokes. That is, secondary prevention of stroke and is synonymous with post-stroke medication. All other medications that are assigned to this period do not affect the prognosis of the disease and often even harmful to the patient.
3. Rehabilitation after a stroke.

They are incredibly difficult to adapt to the new conditions under the name “life after stroke". Some become aggressive, irritable, and unfair to families.
