STROKE IDENTIFICATION

 
During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured
everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) and that
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, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been
taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm, Ingrid passed away.) She had
suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs
of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid 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...
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 to SPEAK A
SIMPLE SENTENCE
(Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny
out today)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

*NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this:

Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue. If the
tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other, that is also
an indication of a stroke. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of
these tasks, call 911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the
dispatcher.
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.
