Stroke risks highlighted at Bangkok Hospital Pattaya fair

Friday, 30 November 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 48 By  Vittaya Yoondorn

A Bangkok Hospital Pattaya health fair raised awareness on the risks of stroke and offered advice on caring for victims.

The Nov. 17 event mixed fun and educational activities with health checks to encourage people to take more care of their brains and the arteries flowing to it.

Five neurologists demonstrated exams of the carotid artery using ultrasound and discussed treatments and patient care. They invited patients to discuss their experiences and offered stroke-risk tests free to 55 attendees.
