Is he getting ongoing medicinal help for his blood pressure, which was EXTREMELY high when he went into the ER?
I looked up Ascard, and it looks like aspirin is an ingredient of it?
Thank you so much for your advice and quick reply to my query. Yes, he has been prescribed Ascard 75mg o.d.
I am not a professional, though I had a license for vocational nursing in the past. It sounds like your friend's father has suffered a stroke and definitely will want at least a CT scan to look for signs of the stroke or better still, an MRA/MRV, which is an MRI looking at the blood vessels in the head that can be done after a suspected TIA (transient ischemic attack) or a full-blown stroke and doesn't involve the radiation of a CT machine. It is very important he get this kind of testing to look at his brain situation and I do hope he was prescribed blood pressure medication to lower it to a normal level. Also, did they put him on aspirin or plavix?
