STROKE IDENTIFICATION

It only takes a minute to read this…

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE

Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR . Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:[/B][/FONT][/B][B][FONT=Verdana][B]

S *[/B][/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana]Ask the individual to SMILE.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]T *[/FONT][FONT=Verdana]Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today)
[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]R *[/FONT][FONT=Verdana]Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.[/FONT][B][COLOR=blue][FONT=Verdana][B]

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency numberimmediatelyand describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.[/B][/COLOR][/FONT][/B][B][FONT=Tahoma][B]
