STROKE
:  Remember  the 1st Three Letters….S.T.R.


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:

 
S  *Ask  the individual to SMILE.  
T
  *Ask  the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE  (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today.)
  
R
  *Ask  him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS..

 
If  he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number  immediately and
describe the symptoms to the  dispatcher.

 
New  Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue

 
NOTE:  Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his  tongue.. If the tongue is ‘crooked’,
if it goes to one side or the  otherthat  is also an indication of a stroke.

 
A  cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10  people; you can bet ! that at least one life will be  saved.  

I  have done my part….will you?

 

Thank to Kevin & Wendy
