ACV is a cardiovascular disease that affects blood vessels that supply blood to the brain.
"It occurs when these ships carrying oxygen in the brain are broken or blocked by blood embolism or thrombosis. As a result, some of the brain does not receive electricity. The affected brain cells cannot function due to lack of oxygen and death. The same thing happens to the part of the body that they control"Explained Liliana Jordá Vargas, Biochemistry of BioBarica.
In Argentina, strokes have an occurrence close to 126,000 cases a year, one occurs every four minutes.
There are two types of stroke: ischemic strokewhich is the most common cause and occurs when an artery is blocked and blood does not reach part of the brain and attacks hemorrhagic stroke it happens when an artery in the brain bursts that causes bleeding and destroys the area where it occurs and that Although it is less frequent, it is more mortal.
• Lack of sudden feeling, weakness or paralysis in the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body.
• Sudden confusion, sudden trouble speaking or understanding.
• Sudden problems in one or both eyes.
• Difficulty in walking, dizziness, dizziness, loss of balance or lack of coordination.
• Headache and maximum intensity without apparent cause.
• Reduce muscle strength.
• Motor deficit.
• Language or speech disorder.
• Changes in personality and / or mood
Treatment of successors
"Intensive therapy and rehabilitation programs that existed to date are valuable in improving the quality of life just after brain damage, but often provide only partial relief and in some cases leave patients disabled. requires additional therapeutic applications to achieve restoration of affected tissues", Confirmed Jordá Vargas.
The specialist said it "Years of clinical experience have revealed that spontaneous recovery of a stroke occurs mainly within the first 30 days, although survivors of moderate and severe stroke continue to improve for at least 90 days."
In that connection, he pointed it out "Most recovery involves regions of the brain that become dysfunctional, but do not die."
"The innovative study by Tel Aviv University shows that hyperbaric oxygenation treatment (HBOT) can generate important neurological improvements in patients who have suffered a stroke and can also be effective in the treatment and prevention of many other brain disorders."He commented.
Treatment in the hyperbaric chamber can begin both in the degenerative phase of ACV, as in the regenerative stage. Although it is not possible to draw a clear line between the regenerative and degenerative phases, after one month after the acute event, the patient is stable and the degenerative process is completed.
In addition to oxygenating the affected areas of the brain, hyperbaric chamber therapy reduces inflammation, promotes the formation of blood vessels, re-activates neurons by stimulating nerve functionality, favors nerve conduction mechanisms that use oxygen and regenerate damaged cells or damage.
The patient enters a pressurized hyperbaric chamber with a minimum of 1.4 atmospheres ATM (higher than the normal atmospheric pressure, which is 1 atmosphere), and using a mask, oxygen is delivered close to 100%. This gas is transported to the blood and can reach even damaged tissues.
In this way Patients who have suffered ACV will notice it from the use of the hyperbaric chamber they obtain: improve control of fine motor skills the engine deficits are dampened; spasticity (stiffness) is reduced; there is less risk of the consequences; improves patients' quality of life.
