3. What is the correct definition of stroke?

  • A rapidly occurring vascular disturbance of focal origin of presumed vascular origin that lasts more than 24 hours
  • A rapidly occurring focal disturbance of cerebral function with presumed vascular origin that lasts more than 24 hours
  • A slow occurring ischaemic attack on the brain leading to focal disturbance of cerebral function in the vascular system

4. Autonomic dysreflexia is

  • Overactivity of the ANS in response to an irritating stimulus below the level of the spinal chord injury e.g Full bladder Symptoms occur as a reflex is activated that increases the sympathetic portion of the ANS. Increased spasms and heart rate
  • Overactivity of the ANS in response to an irritating stimulus below the level of the spinal chord injury e.g Full bladder Symptoms occur as a reflex is activated that increases the sympathetic portion of the ANS. Increased spasms and BP
  • Overactivity of the ANS in response to an irritating stimulus below the level of the spinal chord injury e.g Full bladder Symptoms occur as a reflex is activated that increases the sympathetic portion of the ANS.Only below L5

5. Dysphagia is

  • Difficulty with movement due to disruption in the motor cortex leading to a lack of innervation of the muscle fibers.
  • Difficulty with swallowing due to disruption in the swallowing process.
  • Difficulty with communication. Due to the hypoxic nature of a stroke, broca's (expressive) and weirnicke's (receptive) area are starved of oxygen and damaged.
