Background of the Study

Stroke is inability to move the major parts of the brain and other body parts and also

unable to speak a clear language is it because of hemorrhage resulting in blood coagulation

And or because of insufficient oxygen supply in to the brain. There are 2 types of CVA we
have ischemic and hemorrhagic. In transient ischemic stroke the signs & symptoms is numb or
weak feeling in the face, arm or leg , blood supply is interrupted, trouble speaking or
understanding, unexplained dizziness, blurred vision in one or both eyes, loss of balance or an
unexplained fall, difficulty swallowing, headache, confusion, unconsciousness. While
hemorrhagic stroke is formation of blood in the blood vessels There are two main types of
hemorrhagic strokes first is intracerebral hemorrhage and second is subarachnoid hemorrhage the
signs & symptoms is severe headache during activity, weakness, paralysis, loss of sensation, and
numbness that often affect only one side of the body, unable to speak or become confused,
nausea, vomiting, seizures, and loss of consciousness are common and may occur within seconds
to minutes. Aspirin is the most commonly used medicine to prevent stroke, aspirin reduces the
risk of stroke in people who have already had a transient ischemic attack and reduce the risk of
stroke in people who cannot have surgery to reopen a blocked carotid artery, & is used to reduce
the risk of additional strokes or TIAs in people who had a stroke or TIA while taking aspirin.

We all know that every one of us have lost a loved one or know someone who suffers

from heart disease. And one more things is to know about drug therapy for the prevention and

treatment of disease processes like aspirin and how aspirin is very safe to use in a CVA patient

who can’t afford to buy

Statement of the problem

The research was deal w/ on how effective the medicine aspirin in the CVA patients who suffer
from this are some questions on how the medicine aspirin works.
1. How effective is the medicine aspirin in the treatment of CVA patients?
2. What are the possible complications of over dosage of this medication?
3. Is CVA only attacks the Geriatric patients?
4. How worse the signs and symptoms before the patients take of this medication? worse the signs and symptoms after patients tooked this medications?
