What is a blood clot?
A blood clot is a blood clump that has switched from a gel-like to a semi-solid state. Clotting is a necessary treatment that, in some cases, for example, if you are wounded or cut, will prevent you from losing too much blood.
If there is a clot inside one vein, it will not dissolve alone. This can be an even life-threatening and hazardous condition. A blood clot that is immobile won’t usually hurt you, but it can shift and become dangerous. If a blood clot breaks loose and travels to the heart and lungs via the veins, it can become trapped, and blood flows protection. The emergency is a medical one.
Blood clot in the Brain
A brain blood clot is sometimes called a stroke. Your Brain may have a blood clot and other signs such as sudden trouble speaking or hearing, as well as a sudden headache.
Types of Blood Clots in Brain
Approximately 90 percent are ischemic strokes. A brain blood clot is triggering this stroke. This prevents a clot in the head from blood rushing to the neck or the Brain. The brain’s clot in the blood vessel can form, and more than one clot may occur. The only reason a stroke takes place is not sufficient for the blood clot in the Brain. If clots arise in the upper chest or heart, and the clot somehow prevents the blood from flowing into the Brain, you could have a stroke. The clot can dissolve by itself and is referred to as a transient ischemic attack or TIA if this occurs.
Stroke of the bleeding
Another big stroke is hemorrhagic. This form of stroke is related to bleeding in the brain and is typically the deadlier variable stroke. Usually, following an aneurysm, a hemorrhagic stroke happens. This increases part of the weak artery that ultimately contributes to its explosion. The rupture of the artery wall can cause a hemorrhagic stroke due to the fat plaque. Over time this can lead to hemorrhagic stroke. Blood dilution can cause hemorrhage in the Brain. Hypertension can also cause hemorrhage in the Brain.
What are the risk factors?
Some risk factors will increase the probability of blood clots. Your risk of a blood clot rises during a recent hospital stay, in particular, which is long or connected to a major operation. Age, especially when you are over 65 years old on long journeys, such as travels, has made you stay at bed rest or sedentary for more extended stretches for more than four hours. Prevalent factors that can make your blood clot at moderate risk include:
- Blood clots family history
- Any tablets for birth control
When to contact a doctor
It is tough to diagnose a blood clot alone for signs. Almost 50% of the people with DVT have no symptoms, according to the CDC. This is why your doctor should be named best if you think you might have one.
Significant are the symptoms that come from nowhere. If you encounter any of the following, contact your local emergency services immediately:
- Sudden breathlessness
- chest pressure
- Breathing difficulty, seeing or communicating difficulty
Your doctor or other health care provider will say whether there is a reason to be concerned and take further tests to ascertain the exact cause. A non-invasive ultrasound is often the first step. This test shows a picture that lets your doctor make a diagnosis of your veins/arteries.
