The cold air can trigger a stroke due to exposure to cold causes increased blood pressure, blood vessel constriction, and clotting of platelets. Researchers in the United States also revealed that low air temperature variations can also cause a similar effect.

The cold air can trigger a stroke

The air is increasingly cold not only makes you susceptible to flu or colds, but also the disease is more severe. Recently, a study has revealed that cold air can also trigger a stroke. A study found that people are more easily affected by the stroke and died in the cold air and moist. Conversely, the warmer air will make the risk of stroke decreased and a higher chance of surviving.

The cold air can trigger a stroke due to exposure to cold causes increased blood pressure, blood vessel constriction, and clotting of platelets. Researchers in the United States also revealed that low air temperature variations can also cause a similar effect.

"The weather is not something that is often associated with stroke risk. However we found that the air condition is one of the factors associated with stroke," said lead researcher Judith Lichtman.

These results were obtained the researchers after doing research on 134 510 people aged 18 years and over were admitted to hospital in 2009 up to 2010 because a stroke. Most of them had a stroke because blood clots and blocked blood flow to the brain. they then compare with the weather and humidity level at that time.

Researchers indicate that climate change is enough big and high humidity associated with increased rates of strokes that occur. Meanwhile, low temperatures and cold air associated with stroke attack and increased risk of death.

Professor Lichtman explains that people who have a risk of stroke should avoid significant temperature changes and humidity are high. In addition, they also must to always be vigilant and alert if experiencing symptoms of a stroke when the air turns cold. Furthermore, researchers will conduct further observations to understand with certainty the effect and cause climate change on the risk of stroke.

Keep your health and always be careful if the cold air coming.
