    re citicoline

    i dont get why they use that for post-stroke

    citicoline increases stress hormone levels

    hindi ba masama yan sa mga may stroke?

    under a lot of stress na nga sila dahil sa stroke nila, they're depressed already

    since nasa stroke ang topic

    i understand there are 2 kinds of stroke -- embolic and hemmorhagic

    so when a patient is brought to you showing symptoms of stroke (slurred speech, weakness on 1 side of body etc) how do you find out what kind of stroke is it? i mean how do you find out really fast?

    coz i also understand there is a 3 hour window of opportunity to prevent permanent damage if you inject the patient with tissue plasminogen activator to dissolve the blot clot

    but you gotta find out first if the stroke is caused by a blood clot
    a quick clinical way to find out if it's hemorrhagic or if its an infarct is if there's any meningeal signs (i.e. nuchal rigidity and pain upon flexing the hip and knee) - those usually are present in an acute hemorrhagic stroke. Pero minsan iba pa rin lumalabas sa CT.

    t-PA is really for infarcts... decompression for hemorrhages. only surefire way to find out is a plain CT.

    citicoline.. supposedly helps regenerate neurons. hence better functional capacity after a stroke.

    marami rin kaming nakikitang young MI sa ICU... usually men in their 30s-40s. smoker, hypertensive...

    we also have a couple of cases of stroke in their 20s. yikes.

    and hindi pa ako MD...

    so based on symptoms hindi ganyan kasigurado kung bleeding stroke or clot stroke

    so kelangan mag CT scan para maging sure

    pag nasigurado na may bara, then the doc injects a patient with tPA?

    paano kung wala CT scan yung hospital?

    will the doc risk injecting the patient with tPA?

    it's only a 3 hour window

    paano kung bleeding stroke yan and na-inject ng tPA? lalo di titigil yung bleed

    btw, lahat ba ng ER meron tPA?

    my question is this -- how do doctors decide which class of drug to prescribe? since the end goal is to control high BP and all those drugs can lower bp (but different mechanisms of action), how do doctors decide which drug to prescribe?
    one side effect of atenolol that my cardiologist said... si junior ay medyo tatamlay. kaya nga sabi ko... dok yung gamot na hindi naman maapektuhan si misis ang i-prescribe, hehehe.

    this was epitomized by the rock star/eraserheads icon Ely Buendia.
    myocardial infarction at an early age..
    eto yung younger generation of patients having heart problems.
    lots of factors ito, and the worst is ALAM NATIN, but we tend to justify them.
