When the 65 year old stopped taking his antihypertensive drugs, a scene of fear ensued

Mr. Wang, 65, had hypertension for a long time and took regular oral antihypertensive drugs for a long time. However, recently, he stopped the antihypertensive drugs willfully. The accident happened at this time, one day, Wang suddenly appeared on the right hand and feet can not move, can not walk, and also can not say line emergency telephone, sent him to the hospital. < p > < p > after admission, emergency head CT showed hematoma in the left basal ganglia, with a blood loss of about 30ml. With the progress of the disease, Wang gradually appeared unconscious, motor aphasia, right limb hemiplegia. After discussion in the Department, the patient had a large amount of intracranial hemorrhage, obvious dysfunction, and obvious surgical indications. Combined with the wishes of family members, after improving the relevant preoperative preparation, drilling and drainage of intracranial hematoma was performed immediately. < p > < p > after timely and appropriate rescue, the patient recovered consciousness and stable vital signs. The next day, the drainage tube was unobstructed, and the intracranial hematoma was significantly reduced. After a period of systematic treatment, the patient was conscious when he left the hospital, his right limb was not completely paralyzed, he could walk on crutches, and he could basically take care of himself in daily life. Chen Shunxiang, director of Neurosurgery, said that cerebral hemorrhage refers to the hemorrhage caused by the rupture of blood vessels in the brain parenchyma, accounting for 20% – 30% of all stroke cases, and the acute mortality rate is 30% – 40%. Patients with cerebral hemorrhage often suffer from sudden onset due to emotional excitement and exertion, and the early mortality rate is very high. Most of the survivors have sequelae such as dyskinesia, cognitive impairment and dysphagia. Prevention mainly focuses on controlling risk factors, such as controlling hypertension, controlling diabetes mellitus, controlling hyperlipidemia, quitting smoking and exercising properly. < / P > < p > “now many old people stop taking pressure reducing drugs after taking them for a period of time. This is a serious misunderstanding. &Chen Shunxiang said that the key to hypertension treatment is that antihypertensive drugs should be taken for a long time. Because all antihypertensive drugs are effective only during the period of taking drugs. If you stop taking drugs if you feel your blood pressure is normal, your blood pressure will return to the level before treatment sooner or later. In order to reduce the risk of cerebral hemorrhage, we hope that all patients with hypertension must strictly abide by their own defense line of life, choose appropriate drugs under the professional guidance of doctors, control blood pressure in a suitable range, and adhere to regular long-term medication. < / P > < p > of course, if there are symptoms of cerebral hemorrhage, you must dial 120 immediately and rescue the patients with the help of emergency doctors. Don’t ignore it and miss the best time for emergency treatment. “Time is life”, “one second heaven, one second hell”, for the rescue of patients with cerebral hemorrhage, time is the most important factor. 08/16/2020
