Recognising A STROKE - Early intervention to prevent long lasting trauma


Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps - STR

Read and Learn!

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 recognised, diagnosed and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. 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 recognise the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a by-stander can recognise a stoke by asking three simple questions:

S - Ask the individual to SMILE

T - Ask the person to

TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (coherently) e.g. It is sunny out today

R - Ask him or to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANYONE of these tasks, call for emergency services 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 their tongue. If the
tongue is 'crooked'. If it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
