For the best possible neurological care, schedule a consultation with a specialist at ABR Neuro Multi Specialty Hospitals in Uppal

ABR Neuro Multispecialty Hospitals have a specialized and dedicated 'Emergency Stroke Program ' to treat acute stroke patients. The program consists of a “RAPID ACTION TEAM”, a multidisciplinary team comprising ER physicians, Neurologists, Imaging Specialists, Emergency Technicians and Nurses. The team is activated the moment a patient with facial and arm weakness, and speech disturbance (FAST) arrives into our Emergency Department.


ABR Neuro Hospitals Emergency Stroke Program

ABR Hospitals has a strategically designed Emergency Stroke Program dedicated to treat patients who have experienced an acute stroke. The multidisciplinary Rapid Action Team comprising of ER Physicians, Neurologists, Neurointerventionalists, Imaging Specialists, Emergency Technicians and Nurses is alerted into action the minute a patient displaying FAST symptoms (Facial drooping, Arm Weakness and Speech Difficulty) is brought in to the Emergency Department. As the initial hours of the stroke treatment are of paramount importance, the ER is equipped with the necessary machinery to perform triage and other required interventions like Intravenous Thrombolysis, Intra-arterial Thrombolysis, and Thrombectomy without any unnecessary time delay.

The most common treatment for many neurological diseases is medication. Our neurologists have a broad knowledge of medications that are currently available on the market as well as investigational drug therapies that are on the horizon.

Surgery may be an option for some patients. We collaborate with some of the most highly skilled neurosurgeons in the region and will make referrals based on your unique situation whenever we determine that would be the best option for you.


NEUROLOGIC DIAGNOSTIC TESTING

Patients on the Neurology Service at ABR Hospitals in Uppal can be admitted for both diagnostic and therapeutic causes. In addition, we video-monitor patients with suspected epilepsy and sleep disorders which are often misdiagnosed and mistreated for years before getting a right diagnosis and treatment.

  • Routine Electroencephalography (EEG) & long-term video-EEG monitoring study for evaluation of possible seizures.
  • Polysomnography (PSG) for sleep disorders.
  • Nerve conduction studies (NCS) and Electromyography (EMG) for evaluation of nerve and muscles disorders (neuromuscular disorders).

 Electroencephalogram (EEG)

  • EEG stands for electroencephalogram. It is the recording of the “brainwaves” – the electrical activity of the brain.
  • The test will be carried out by specially trained health professionals (EEG technician) in the clinical neurophysiology department.
  • The EEG is a pain free test and patients do not feel any shocks on the scalp or elsewhere.
  • Patients are referred for an EEG for a variety of reasons including seizures, faints and blackouts and the results will assist the referring doctor in diagnosis and treatment.
  • Usually the regular EEG is 45 minutes - 1 hour. A sleep deprived EEG is preferred to increase the diagnostic yield and might take 3 hours to perform. A long-term video EEG monitoring is usually 24 hours and it’s indicated to help in diagnosing challenging cases and guiding appropriate treatment. Sedation might be needed to record sleep during the EEG.

It is our policy to handle all test results in a secure and confidential manner At the end of the test, the EEG technician will not be able to give you any results, as they will need to be analysed carefully by the Neurologist/epileptologist. Once the test result is available, you will be contacted by us.


NCS (Nerve conduction study)

Nerve conduction studies (NCS): A nerve conduction study measures how long it takes for a nerve impulse to travel along a nerve.If the nerve is trapped, damaged or diseased then these signals will be slow.


Why Is Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Done?

Symptoms that might prompt a referring clinician to order a nerve conduction velocity test include numbness, tingling, and burning sensations. The nerve conduction velocity testcan be used to detect true nerve disorders (such as peripheral neuropathy and mononeuritis multiplex) or conditions whereby nerves are affected by mechanical compression injury (such as carpal tunnel syndrome and other compression neuropathies). A normal body temperature must be maintained for the nerve conduction velocity test because low body temperatures slow the speed of nerve conduction.


VER & VEP :

The Visually Evoked Response test (VER), also known as the Visually Evoked Potential test (VEP), is a test for Optic Neuritis or other demyelinating events along the Optic Nerve or further back along the optic pathways. VEPs are very sensitive at measuring slowed responses to visual events and can often detect dysfunction which is undetectable through clinical examination.

A doctor may recommend that you go for a VEP test when you are experiencing changes in your vision that can be due to problems along the pathways of certain nerves. Some of these symptoms may include:

Loss of vision (this can be painful or non-painful);

  • Double vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Flashing lights
  • Alterations in colour vision; or Weakness of the eyes, arms or legs.

BERA:

Hearing loss in children is difficult to know from the beginning. Hearing loss can cause speech, language, cognitive, social and emotional problems. Therefore, it will be better if the hearing test in children is done early.

Healthy hearing is when the auditory nerve is able to transmit sound impulses from the ear to the brain at a certain speed. The BERA test can provide information on whether nerves convey sound impulses to the brain and whether the speed of sound delivery is within normal limits.

This hearing examination can determine the type of abnormality (conductive or sensor neural), severity (hearing threshold), and hearing loss (inner ear or other parts) of the child. In addition, in determining the hearing threshold, BERA is also used in otoneurologic diagnosis. This is useful for patients with unilateral or asymmetrical hearing loss (hearing nerve tumors, brain tumors, other nerve disorders, multiple sclerosis, etc.).


Headache

Headache—in all its varieties—is common and can seriously affect your quality of life. When headaches don’t respond to the usual treatments, neurology consultants with Highland Neurology at ABR Neuro Multi Speciality Hospital can help. Our specialists have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of headache disorders.

When people think of headaches and neurologists, they think of migraine. Certainly migraine is a common neurological problem, but at Highland Neurology, we treat the full spectrum of headache disorders, including tension type headache, cluster headache, chronic daily headache, medication overuse headache, cervicogenic ("neck-related") headache, and post-traumatic headache. These are just a few of the types of headaches neurologists treat.


Migraine

Migraine is a neurological disorder often described as intense pulsing or throbbing pain in one area of the head. Typically the headache is unilateral (affecting one half of the head) and pulsating in nature, lasting from 2 to 72 hours.

Migraines are believed to be due to a mixture of environmental and genetic factors . Migraines typically present with self-limited, recurrent severe headache associated with autonomic symptoms.

Symptoms of migraine can be divided into stages. There are five distinct stages of migraine, though not everyone goes through all the stages:

  • 'Prodromal' (pre-headache) stage: Some people experience changes in mood, energy levels, behaviour and appetite, and sometimes aches and pains several hours or days before an attack.
  • Headache stage: This is usually a pulsating or throbbing pain on one side of the head. It is associated with nausea or vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to bright light and loud sounds, with a strong desire to lie down in a darkened room. This stage lasts for four to 72 hours.
  • Resolution stage: Most attacks gradually fade away. Some people find the headache stops suddenly after they have been sick. Sleep often relieves the symptoms.
  • 'Postdromal' or recovery phase: There may be a stage of exhaustion and weakness afterwards. Other symptoms can also occur during a migraine. These include:
    • A frequent need to urinate
    • Poor concentration
    • Abdominal pain
    • Feeling very hot or very cold
    • Sweating

Stoke (Paralysis)

Stroke (also known as Brain Attack) occurs when blood supply to the brain is affected due to either blockage or leakage (or both blockage and leakage) of a blood vessel responsible for supplying or draining blood to and from the brain, thereby, causing brain damage leading to difficulty in movements, sensation, speaking, vision etc. or at times to death.


Types of stroke

  • Ischemic Stroke:In India about 70-75% of all strokes are ischemic, in which blood flow to the brain is blocked by blood clots or fatty deposits (also known as plaque) in blood vessel linings.
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke:It occurs when a blood vessel leaks in the brain. Blood accumulates and compresses the surrounding brain tissue. This is also called ‘Brain hemorrhage.
  • Intracerebral hemorrhage: It is the most common type of hemorrhagic stroke. It occurs when an artery in the brain leaks, flooding the surrounding tissue with blood.
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage: It is bleeding in the area between the brain and its covering consisting of layers of tissue.
  • Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a "warning stroke" or a "mini-stroke" that results in no lasting damage. Recognizing and treating TIAs immediately can reduce your risk of a major stroke.

Stroke can affect any movement, senses, speech, behavior, thoughts, memory, and emotions. The body may become paralyzed or weak.

The five most common symptoms of stroke are

  • Weakness or Numbness of the face, arm, or leg.
  • Confusion or trouble speaking or understanding others.
  • Difficulty in vision
  • Difficulty in walking or loss of balance or coordination.
  • Severe headache with unknown cause.

Epilepsy (FITS)

As per WHO, epilepsy is a chronic disorder characterized by recurrent seizures which may vary from a brief lapse of attention or muscle jerks, to severe and prolonged convulsions.

The seizures are caused by sudden, usually brief, excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain cells (neurons). In most cases, epilepsy can be successfully treated with anti-epileptic drugs. Epilepsy is a chronic non communicable disorder of the brain that affects people of all ages. WHO statistics shows that around 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy. It is very common in India especially in children.

The main symptoms of epilepsy are repeated seizures. There are many different types of seizures, depending on the area of the brain affected. Seizures can be classified into 2 categories depending on how much of the brain is affected. There are:

  • Partial seizures – Where only a small part of the brain is affected
  • Generalized seizures – Where most or all of the brain is affected. It is more common in children.

Symptoms of partial seizure include:

  • Changes in the way things look, smell, feel, taste or sound
  • An intense feeling that events have happened before (déjà vu)
  • Tingling sensation, or ‘pins and needles’, in arms and legs
  • A sudden intense emotion, such as fear or joy
  • The muscles in arms, legs and face may become stiff
  • Experience twitching on one side of your body

There are six main types of generalized seizure:

  • Absence seizure: This mainly affect children. It causes the child to lose awareness of his surroundings for up to 20-30 seconds. The child will seem to stare vacantly into space, though some children might flutter their eyes or smack their lips. The child will have no memory of the seizure. Absences can occur several times a day. Although they are not dangerous, they may affect the child's performance.
  • Myoclonic jerks: It is types of seizures that cause arms, legs or upper body to jerk or twitch, much like an electric shock. It often only last for a fraction of a second. Myoclonic jerks often happen in the first few hours after waking up and can occur in combination with other types of generalized seizures.
  • Clonic seizure: It causes the same sort of twitching as myoclonic jerks, except the symptoms last longer, normally up to two minutes. The patient may get unconscious
  • Atonic seizure: It cause all muscles to relax, so there is a chance to fall on the ground. Facial injuries are common with this type of seizure.
  • Tonic seizure: Unlike an atonic seizure, tonic seizures cause all the muscles to suddenly become stiff. That can result in loss of balance and fall over, so injuries to the back of the head are common in this type of seizure.
  • Tonic-clonic seizure: It is known as grand mal, has two stages. In this body becomes stiff and then arms and legs begins twitching. Patient loses consciousness. The seizure normally lasts between one and three minutes, but can last longer.
