If with any above symptoms, one must call emergency services or go to the nearest hospital. A Computerized Tomography (CT) scan of the brain is one of the first procedures that will be done, to identify whether there is a stroke and to differentiate what type of stroke it is.
Treatment for stroke depends on the individual, the nature, and the severity of the disease. Early diagnosis and treatment means better neurological outcome for the individual. Specialized care for stroke patients begins at the emergency room, and continues to the hospital ward and even after discharge. This is because rehabilitation is needed to restore the functioning of the individual as close to baseline as possible.
