Stroke Symptoms

During a BBQ, a friend fall - she assured everyone that comes if he is okay and he just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes (they offered to call paramedics).They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. Although it looks a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying afternoon. Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6 pm the next day, Ingrid passed away.)
She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. If only they knewhow to recognize the signs of a stroke perhaps Ingrid would be with us today.It only takes a minute to read this.
A neurologist says that if he can help a stroke victim within 3 hours after the attack, he can reverse the effects of a stroke in total! He said the trick is to recognize and diagnose stroke within 3 hours since the assault, which is actually a difficult thing.
Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify.
Unfortunately, the lack of vigilance can be disastrous. The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people are nearby at the time of the incident, failed to recognize the symptoms of stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander canrecognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
  1. Ask the individual to SMILE.
  2. Ask the person to LIFT BOTH HANDS.
  3. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently), for example: "Today is sunny." Blablabla ....
If the person is not able to do what we asked for one of the above or immediately brought to the nearest hospital to get further first aid.
