Stroke, most commonly known among adults, also affects children. Knowing how to recognize the signs as quickly as possible is essential.
Identify warning signs
Every year, about a thousand children and adolescents suffer from a stroke. As in adults, management time is essential for stroke to increase the chances of recovery.
Warning signs such as mouth deformity, speech and vision disorders, sudden headache, vomiting, weakness on one side of the body and seizures should alert. The rapid arrival of emergency services and the immediate transport of the child to the hospital reduce the risk of sequelae. The more oxygen the brain is deprived of, the more serious the sequelae will be.
