That said, I'm not sure why your post bears the title "Stroke". Strokes usually present over the course of several hours and involve a plethora of neurological symptoms, like confusion, difficulty speaking, memory loss, sudden lethargy, tingling or numbness down one side of the body, and sometimes a sharp pain in the head.
Avatar n tn You might be referring to the New York Heart Association (NYHA) Functional Classification. This is a simple way of classifying the extent of heart failure.

Avatar n tn My mother suffered an acute subdural hematoma after falling down the stairs, hitting her head. She had surgery to drain the blood within a 2 hour window.
