Recognizing a Stroke

Susie is recouping at an incredible pace for someone with a massive stroke all
because Sherry saw Susie stumble--that is the key that isn't mentioned below
and then she asked Susie the 3 questions

So simple-- This literally saved Susie's life--Some angel sent it to Susie's friend
and they did just what it said to do. Susie failed all three question so 911 was
called. Even though she had normal blood pressure readings and did not appear
to be having a stroke as she could converse to some extent with the Paramedics
they took her to the hospital right away. Thank God for the sense to remember
the 3 steps! Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to
identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster.
The stoke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognized
the symptoms of a stoke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

1-Ask the individual to SMILE

2-Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS

3-Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (coherently)
(i.e., It is sunny out today)

If her or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 911 immediately and
describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify facial
weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general
public to learn the three questions.

They presented their conclusions at the American Stroke Association's annual
meeting last February.

Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the
stoke and prevent brain damage. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this
message passes it on to ten people, you can bet that a least one life will be saved.

AS POSSIBLE, it could save their lives.
