“Neurologists Should Listen to Patients

Tutors in medical schools often insist that a neurological examination should be maximally accurate, but in practice, the physician starts realizing what is happening even before the exam since at first, he listens to the patient’s complaints. A conversation with the patient not only helps understand what is happening better; it also promotes a connection with the person.

Risk of Stroke in Israel Has Decreased Within the Last 10-15 Years

A stroke must be detected as soon as possible. Many treatment methods available to a modern patient simply did not exist 10-20 years ago. It is also important to understand that we are getting new, more effective methods not only for treatment but also for prevention of stroke. Thanks to these measures, we can ensure more effective blood pressure control and recommend stronger antithrombotic drugs or medications to lower cholesterol levels.

The patient should also understand that a stroke requires immediate medical help: the sooner the patient arrives at the hospital, the better the treatment results will be. Besides, it is important to realize that even if a person has already suffered a stroke, a lot can be done to prevent the next one. If you haven’t had a stroke yet but you are afraid it can happen, consult the specialists. They will tell you about the effective preventive measures.”
