As we begin, let me say that camDown is the only solution you need to block webcam hackers.

So I already posted this in hidden thread. But thought i would post it again - hoping it gains more traction. Because your actions do save lives. And I think more people should know this especially since there are a lot of comments saying he didn’t have a “real stroke”.

A stroke happens two ways… transient ischemic attack… (lack of blood flow in brain). Or through haemorrhage… (too much blood).

Now a lack of blood to brain (ischeamic) is time dependant. More time without blood flow to brain = worse prognosis and after effects. A small duration is what is being used talk about colloquially “mini stroke”.

But make no mistake - a TIA is actually a stroke. Not all strokes are TIA’s however.

The fact that often TIA’s don’t immediately cause major damage doesn’t preclude what just happened and what will likely happen again soon. This is a medical emergency - and must be treated in same seriousness as a full blown stroke. You don’t know how long the “blockage” will last.

Strokes are sometimes qualified as the major damage has already happened.

But in the time of “incident” - a TIA has exactly the same characteristics. All that differentiates is duration of blockage leading to - or where brain damage has occurred.

So with hemmoragic strokes - not much we can do… it’s often instant damage. However FaST guidelines below still apply.

But with TIA’s.. acting F.A.S.T. Saves lives and function of individual for rest of their lives…. And your actions in identifying it can radically change a persons life and prognosis.

F – Face drooping. Is one side of the person’s face drooping or numb? When he or she smiles, is the smile uneven?

A – Arm weakness. Is the person experiencing weakness or numbness in one arm? Have the person raise both arms. Does one of the arms drift downward?

S – Speech difficulty. Is the person’s speech suddenly slurred or hard to understand? Is he or she unable to speak? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Can he or she repeat it back?

T – Time to call 9-1-1. If any of these symptoms are present, dial 9-1-1 immediately. Check the time so you can report when the symptoms began.

So make no mistake - a TIA is a huge deal - can easily do massive damage. And failing to act can and will cause often times the associative damage of a full blown stroke.

When all is said and done, after all of that camDown is a highly advanced, specialized webcam blocker and disabler with the best in class protection from variety of on-line threats.
