Introduction

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. Blood is prevented from reaching brain tissue when a blood vessel leading to the brain becomes blocked (ischemic) or bursts (hemorrhagic). The symptoms of a stroke differ, depending on the part of the brain affected and the extent of the damage. Symptoms following a stroke come on suddenly and may include: weakness, numbness, or tingling in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance, or coordination inability to speak or difficulty speaking or understanding, trouble seeing with one or both eyes, or double vision, confusion or personality changes, difficulty with muscle movements, such as swallowing, moving arms and legs…...

The Accident

...The Accident I woke up in a very strange place. A place I wasn’t quite familiar with. My left arm and left leg wrapped in some kind of brace. I’m familiar with the sporting braces, but this one, was a whole lot different. It had the same fabrics as a regular sporting brace, but much thicker. It was as hard as wooden table. It even sounded like one when I knocked on it. Because of the braces on me, I could barely move my left arm or left leg. After trying to move it, I felt a lot of pain in the process. Everything was so shocking to me. I kept saying to myself, “Where am I? “Where am I? “Where am I? As these questions rushed through my mind, I heard a voice. I looked around the room in search of the voice. On my right, there was a man. He said to me, “What’s wrong Larry”? “You had bad dream or something”? I did not reply. I closed my eyes and started to pray to God. Praying for everything that I just saw was all a dream. With my head against my right hand, everything got quite for a bit. About a minute or two later, I opened my eyes. The braces and the pain were still there. The gentleman kept calling me, “Larry”. He was talking, but I paid no attention. I kept thinking why he was calling me “Larry”. “Who are you”? “And why are you calling me Larry”? I said. He replied saying, “Because it’s your name.” “And I’m Gary, if you forgot that.” I kept looking at him and notice that he wasn’t wearing any of the equipments I was wearing. He had something else. Some kind of...

A Major Accident

...Fahad Al Ashban ENG107 A major accident I never expected that I would have a major accident, but I had a very strong accident that I saw my whole life in front of me and it was the first moment that I saw death in front of me. I was going to my friend’s house with my brand new car when I had an accident and my car went upside down. I didn’t know what happened to me or even what I did before I had this accident, and the thing that made it worse that I was going to my friend’s house to study with him for my final exam which was physics and it was two days after the accident. This accident changed my whole life and my whole understanding of driving a car, after this accident I started to put my seatbelt on when I drive and I started to drive more safely. The accident was three years ago in Saudi Arabia before my final exam, I was 17 years old at my 11th grade, at that time I liked to drive a lot because I recently took my driver license and I was very happy with it. I remember that when I would get bored from studying I would go to the grocery store that is a few meters away of our house with my car and after I get a coke from there I go around my neighborhood just because I want to drive and also because I am driving my brand new car. That car was Toyota, I remember that I suffered a lot to get this car; my father said always that I can’t get an expensive car because it’s my first car and the first car always should be a cheap car. He at first wanted me to take Yaris...

Premeditation or Accident?

...Running Head: Premeditation or Accident Troy Siu Premeditation or Accident EN1320 COMP I 10/31/2013 It was just another regular day in high school, January 15, 1987 at Los Angeles High School, to be precise. I was in my ESL class and having a substitute teacher, was an ideal fooling around day. It was a race to see who would finish the classwork since the substitute teacher did not know what to cover, in another words he was just babysitting us. As a teenager, this kind of day in high school felt like paradise since we could do pretty much whatever we wanted of course within the school’s rule that is. I remembered sitting in between a small gathering of friends. There were 5 to 6 rows of chairs aligned vertically with like about 5 to 7 chairs in each row line. As I finished my work, I asked my classmate Oscar, who was sitting in front of me, to let me borrow his portable radio cassette player (better known as Walkman). Then I proceeded to scan through the radio stations and that's when I started listen to power 106 with Jay Thomas. He was usually playing old school rap, funk and freestyle or whatever the new style of music was at that moment. My close classmates followed finishing the classwork as I was enjoying the sound of a good song, when I noticed one of my classmate ,can't remember his name but for now I’m going to refer to him as Mario, sitting two seats up on my right side of the aisle pulling a gun from his backpack. I am not an expert in guns, but from far away...

When I was young, I had always wanted to get a Ford Mustang as it has been my favorite car. To my luck, my mother was able to afford one and got it as my graduation gift. it was black and blue it had tinted windows and a spoiler. I was 21 years old and had my drivers license for 6 years already.  I was so happy. I had a new car and I was going to drive it. People would comment how nice my car was including family and friends. One starless night at around 9pm I was driving home from my boyfriend Maikel’s house at 30mph when it happened. I never thought I was going to go through such a terrible experience. And an experience I wasn’t going to forget.  I had an accident. Mario ran a stop sign & crashed me. Since he was speeding my car went in circles about 4 times. While it was going in circles it hit the Mario’s car. I was conscious the whole time while inside the car. I was really scared and worried. All I could say was “Oh my god!“ I felt something else hit my car while it was spinning. It was the other car that it hit. As a result Mario’s car got inside the patio of the corner house. My car stopped in front of a palm tree.  When the car came to a complete stop the driver’s and passenger’s airbag popped out. I saw white smoke coming out of the motor of the car. I thought. “I have to get out the car is going to go on fire.” I tried opening the door...

Chile Mining Accident

...n the article that was required for our research, “Over 30 workers trapped after Chilean copper mine collapse” (Weik, 2010), it stated that on August 5, 2010 the San Jose mine collapsed trapping approximately 30 workers. It also stated that rescuers where attempting to locate workers in order to drill to provide those trapped with food, water and oxygen, however rescuers were halted due to a second cave-in. The news article also indicated that prior to the collapse, there was a fatal accident in 2007 which closed the mine, however, opened later that year. The additional articles that was researched for the Chilean mine collapse also did not shed any additional light on the trapped miner, however reads and most likely understood that the owner of the mine is trying to make excuses, such as “Major mining accidents are uncommon in Chile, the world’s top cooper producer” (Arthur, 2010) and “Chile is the world’s top copper producer, but serious mining accidents are uncommon in an industry closely monitored by authorities” (Soto, 2010). These articles were not successful in sending the message because it leaves the question “Why”? Communication is important regardless of the method used; however the audience is to be considered when using any type of communication method whether it is preparing a news article or an office memo to be distributed. Some considerations to be given the different roles and people in the audience are the possible difference in perceptions,......

Managing Client with Cerebrovascular Disease

...Name And Student Number (Bolded)Course, Semester, Year | SITI ROHAIDA BINTE RAHMAT12B057ZADVANCE DIPLOMA IN NEUROSCIENCE, 2012 | Managing Client with Cerebrovascular Disease Introduction Stroke is a part of a cardiovascular disease that occurs when the supply of blood or oxygen to the brain is disrupted by a blockage in the artery or when there is usually a trauma that causes spontaneous bleeding in the brain (Duncan, Zorowitz & Lambert, 2005). Bleeding in the brain, is referred to as a haemorrhagic stroke which results from either ruptured blood vessels or due to an abnormal vascular structure such as arterio-venous malformation. Although stroke can be classified into two different categories (ischemic and haemorrhagic), one should note the indispensable relationship between the two. This would be later explained at a greater detail into the case study. The following would be a brief introduction of my chosen case study.

My Car Accident

...My Car Accident Like any other Saturday, I was hanging out with my best friend, Lindsey. We had just left the Project Graduation car show, and were headed out Buckeye Road trying to get her home on time. We were playing loud music, laughing, swaying and talking about our boyfriend issues like normal. I hated to see the night end, so we sat in my car in her driveway hashing out our plans for next weekend. We hugged and she made me promise I would buckle up and be safe. Of course, I agreed to both, I put the car in reverse and backed out. As I was driving down twisting country roads thinking about our plans for next weekend, the thought of being in a car accident never crossed my mind. And then it happened. A bright red car came barreling at me head on. I panicked, and jerked my steering wheel. My car wheels dropped off the low shoulder. Suddenly, the car careened out of control, and everything went dark. I couldn’t see, but I could hear the screaming of brakes, smell of burning rubber, feel my body being jolted forward in a lifeless motion. I heard sounds of metal crunching, felt like I was soaring through the sky, and everything ended in a sudden hard stop and complete silence. The next thing I remember is someone cradling me, and talking to me and the sounds of sirens in the distance. I fade in and out of consciousness, but I can still feel the pain shooting through my body, and tears of fear flowing down my cheeks. I woke up with something obscuring my vision and...

Critical Thinking--Responsibity of Accident

...Table saw accidents are more common than the average person would think. According to Table Saw Accident Stories and Statistics, 95% of the accidents are hand, arm, wrist and finger injuries and 5% are eye, face, trunk, and leg with persons between the ages of 15-64. Three important issues stand out when it come to the operation of table saws in the work place and in the home; safety, training and equipment conditions. Mr. John Schmidt was injured on June 7; he seriously injured his hand while pushing a large piece of wood through a table saw in the production shop at work. Who is at fault here, the company or Mr. John Schmidt? Problems to be examined are the functioning of the safety guards presently on the table saw being used in the production shop, how employees are trained to operate this equipment and are the equipment conditions well. I will examine what was said by all the employees and management in the production shop. In this dispute it is examined if the company or the employee is at fault. Safety is number one when operating table saws in the work place and in the home. If you are not paying close attention to the process of cutting wood, the safety guards may not protect you in certain situations with handling table saws. According to woodworking machinery expert, Les Winter, the circular blades on the table saw move at a speed of 100 miles per hour. This can cause serious hazards to happen when operator is being careless and not focused on the operation of...

... Getting Compensation with Help from Accident Lawyer Accidents can happen anywhere in our daily lives as we are doing our daily chores. If a person is working in an industry especially where the possibility of an occurrence of a tragedy is almost near certainty they should make sure that the employer has insured them.

Without proper representation at the court by an accident lawyer they may not be compensated nor their hospital bills settled. Not all accidents are physical. There are other types that are psychological such as an abusive employer who do not respect employees, sexual harassments, over exploitation and many more as long as they interfere with the maximum functionality of human being.
