Critical time window for rehabilitation after a stroke
https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/critical-time-window-rehabilitation-after-stroke

Sep 28th, 2021 - Every 40 seconds, an American has a stroke. About 750,000 new strokes occur in the United States each year. Restoring brain function after a stroke remains a challenge. Functional recovery from brain damage requires networks of nerves to adapt and reorganize. This “neuroplasticity” naturally occurs during early development. But studies in rodents suggest that there is a brief period of similarl...

Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH)
https://www.merckmanuals.com/professional/neurologic-disorders/stroke/subarachnoid-hemorrhage-sah

Apr 1st, 2020 - Subarachnoid hemorrhage is sudden bleeding into the subarachnoid space. The most common cause of spontaneous bleeding is a ruptured aneurysm. Symptoms include sudden, severe headache, usually with loss or impairment of consciousness. Secondary vasospasm (causing focal brain ischemia), meningismus, and hydrocephalus (causing persistent headache and obtundation) are common. Diagnosis is by CT or ...

Apr 1st, 2020 - Intracerebral hemorrhage is focal bleeding from a blood vessel in the brain parenchyma. The cause is usually hypertension. Typical symptoms include focal neurologic deficits, often with abrupt onset of headache, nausea, and impairment of consciousness. Diagnosis is by CT or MRI. Treatment includes blood pressure control, supportive measures, and, for some patients, surgical evacuation.

Mar 17th, 2020 - Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States. If people at high risk of heart attack, stroke, and related conditions could be identified, medications and lifestyle changes may help reduce their risk of disease and death. Traditionally, heart disease risk has been assessed using clinical measurements. These include body mass index (BMI)—a ratio of weight to heig...

Irregular sleep patterns may raise risk of heart disease

Mar 10th, 2020 - Getting enough sleep is important for good health. Experts recommend that most adults get seven to nine hours of quality sleep a night. Sleep helps support healthy brain function and important aspects of our metabolism, like controlling appetite and blood sugar. Research has linked insufficient sleep to health conditions such as obesity and diabetes. Studies have also found that insufficient sl...
