The Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke Overview An estimated 17 million people die of CVDs, particularly heart attacks and strokes, every year. A substantial number of these deaths can be attributed to tobacco smoking, which increases the risk of dying from coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease 2–3 fold. Physical inactivity and unhealthy diet are other main risk factors which increase individual risks to cardiovascular diseases. One of the strategies to respond to the challenges to population health and well being due to the global epidemic of heart attack and stroke is to provide actionable information for development and implementation of appropriate policies. As part of such efforts, WHO in collaboration with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has produced for the wider audience, "The Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke". The atlas addresses the global epidemic of heart disease and stroke in a clear and accessible format. This highly valuable reference material has been designed for use by policy makers, national and international organizations, health professionals and the general public. This picturesque atlas is in six parts: cardiovascular disease; risk factors; the burden; action; the future and the past; and world tables.

Medicine For the Backcountry

Blueberries were plentiful and ripe under the late July sun. John, Jan and David were looking forward to a hike in the mountains with berry picking as an added bonus. Saturday finally arrived and they managed to get off to an early start. The hike they had planned was about three miles long, with an elevation gain of 3,500 feet. It would lead them to an exposed ridge covered with blueberry bushes. Since they had been on this trail before, they knew that there would not be any surface water. They each carried a full liter bottle. The day was spectacular clear, warm and sunny with a gentle breeze higher up. Reaching their destination by noon, they were soaked with sweat from the exertion of the climb. They sat like bears among the blueberries, enjoying the water from their bottles and the taste of the ripe fruit. For several hours they nibbled and collected blueberries, reveling in the summer warmth and surrounding beauty. Towards mid-afternoon, David started complaining of thirst. They decided to descend in search of more water. Normally it would have taken about an hour to cover the three miles, but on this day it took several hours and required an unexpected amount of effort for all three.

Welcome to the Cochrane Stroke Group website
The Cochrane Stroke Group has been a part of the Cochrane Collaboration since August 1993. The Cochrane Collaboration is an international organisation that aims to help people make well-informed decisions about healthcare by 'preparing, maintaining, and promoting the accessibility of systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare interventions'.
Cochrane systematic reviews bring together all the available evidence relating to a clearly formulated healthcare question for evaluation and synthesis, using predetermined criteria and explicit methods designed to limit bias.
The Cochrane Stroke Group's Editorial Office is based in the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, UK, and has been funded by the Chief Scientist Office (part of the Scottish Executive Health Department) since January 1994.

Study: Light drinking may cut stroke risk
Story Tools RELATED Interactive: Guidelines for stroke prevention American Stroke Association National Stroke Association Journal of the American Medical Association (CNN) Studies have indicated that drinking alcohol in moderation can cut heart attack risks, and new research supports the theory that the same holds true for preventing strokes. "Light to moderate alcohol consumption may be protective against ... stroke while heavy alcohol consumption increases the risk," said Kristi Reynolds, a doctoral student at Tulane University and co-author of the study, which is published in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association. Tulane University researchers reviewed 35 studies from 1983 to 2002 and concluded that one to two drinks a day is associated with an almost 30 percent lower risk of stroke, the third leading cause of death in the United States. But the findings don't mean the public should start an alcohol habit. The research also found that heavy drinkers increased their risk of stroke by more than 60 percent, canceling out any health benefits of alcohol.

They occur when blood flow to a region of the brain is obstructed and may result in death of brain tissue. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic and hemorrhagic Ischemic stroke is caused by blockage in an artery that supplies blood to the brain, resulting in a deficiency in blood flow (ischemia). Hemorrhagic stroke is caused by the bleeding of ruptured blood vessels (hemorrhage) in the brain.

Her family reported that she had been showing memory problems and strong feelings of jealousy. She also had become disoriented at home and was hiding objects. During a doctor's examination, the woman was unable to remember her husband's name, the year, or how long she had been at the hospital. She could read but did not seem to understand what she read, and she stressed the words in an unusual way. She sometimes became agitated and seemed to have hallucinations and irrational fears.

131. International Aphasia Project
Studying strokeinduced communication difficulties, in multiple languages, to achieve a better understanding of the brain mechanisms that are responsible for normal and abnormal language functions.
International Aphasia Project About CRL People Resources Research ... Contact Researchers at CRL and other colleagues are conducting an international research project on aphasia to study the effects of unilateral brain injury (usually due to strokes) on language and communication abilities. The research is being conducted in seven different languages at the present time. Since so much research on aphasia has been carried out in English, it is difficult to separate universal mechanisms (discoveries that ought to hold for every language in the world) from language-specific content (results that are only true for native speakers of English). By doing crosslinguistic comparisons, they allow us to disentangle these differences while we address one of the most important issues in cognitive neurobiology, the issue of behavioral and neural plasticity: How many different forms can the language processor take under a range of normal and abnormal conditions? The focus is on patients with forms of aphasia that are known to affect the processing of words and grammar (Broca's, Wernicke's aphasia and variation of anomia). The primary goal of this aphasia research is to achieve a better understanding of the brain mechanisms responsible for normal and abnormal language functions. Only people who have experienced a single stroke resulting in communication difficulties may qualify for the study. There is an "Ideal"; candidate criteria list that the potential subjects must pass before they are eligible for the study:

It is a major cause of physical and mental disabilities in older adults. And every year, more and more people are affected when they or someone they know has a stroke. What Is a Stroke? There are two major types of strokes. The most common kind (ischemic) is caused by blood clots or the narrowing of a blood vessel (artery) leading to the brain. The clot keeps blood from flowing into other regions of the brain and prevents needed oxygen and
nutrients from reaching brain cells in these regions. The second major kind of stroke (hemorrhagic) happens when a broken blood vessel (artery) causes bleeding in the
brain. This break also stops oxygen and nutrients from reaching brain cells.

Stroke (Cerebrovascular Accident)
What is a stroke?
A stroke is damage to part of the brain when its blood supply is suddenly reduced or stopped. A stroke may also be called a cerebral vascular accident, or CVA. The part of the brain deprived of blood dies and can no longer function.
How does it occur?
Blood is prevented from reaching brain tissue when a blood vessel leading to the brain becomes blocked or bursts. There are several types of strokes:
  • A thrombotic stroke occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in an artery and blocks blood flow to the brain. An embolic stroke occurs when a blood clot or a piece of debris called plaque, which formed in another vessel in the body, breaks away and flows through the bloodstream to the brain. The clot or clump of plaque then blocks an artery in the brain.
