Communication, safety and infection control of Ischemic stroke
A stroke occurs if there is an Ischemia in some part of the brain that leads to the death of brain cells. Functions of the
body that are controlled by the part of the brain that is affected are either impaired or lost entirely. The severity of the damage mainly
depends on the extent and location of the brain which is affected. A patient who is suffering from an Ischemic stroke should be
assessed immediately after arrival at the hospital. Some of the signs which the physician observed were the airway and breathing
pattern of the patient. The patient was breathing slowly and at a fast pace while at some point the breathing was fading. Also, he had
difficulties in breathing when placed in certain positions. The patients also had a binocular visual loss and facial droop. The patient too
had a sudden decrease in the levels of consciousness. The patient was unable to express his emotions, and there were a clear indication
that he had memory loss. He was not in a position to remember basic things like his name and age. He was also unable to control his
bowel and bladder functions (Lakatos & Somogyi, 2013).
To ensure the safety of the patient all the sharp object and anything which could hurt him were taken out of his room. He had an
attendant to observe his movement all the time he spent in the hospital bed. Considering that the patient had no previous history of
Ischemic stroke the following measures were applied to prevent the infection; platelet antiaggregant, the patient was put on exercise
on daily, Statin and his lifestyle was closed monitored.
