Medical info on How to survive a stroke

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:

 

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone th

at she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said 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 - (at6:00 PMJane 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.

 

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 toTALKand SPEAK A

 

SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)

 (i.e. Chicken Soup)

 

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

 

If he or she has trouble with ANYONEof 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 other that 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.
