Stroke Identification

Stroke has a new indicator! 

Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue 
      Remember the 1st Three Letters…..

S. T. R.      

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) …she sai
d   she had just  tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane   ‘s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM  Jane   passed away) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps  Jane   would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

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.    


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

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

(   i   .   e   . Chicken Soup)  
      *   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/her tongue. If the tongue is
‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other
 that is also an indication of a stroke.
