Stroke Indicators

I received this e-mail from a friend and thought this would be a good forum to pass it along.

Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue.







I will continue to forward this every time it comes around!


STROKE: Remember
The 1st Three Letters....
S.T.R.


My nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree.

If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks.
Seriously..

Please read:


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) ... 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, 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- (at6:00 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.

RECOGNIZINGA 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 and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today)


R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble withANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 immediately and describe thesymptoms 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 to10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I got up a couple of weeks ago and was REAL DIZZY. That had never happened before and I was thinking, maybe stroke. I was trying to think of the speaking test. I knew the tongue and arms tests, but couldn't remember the other...

Went to the doc and he said inner ear thing... which went away when I was walking out of the doc's office and thankfully hasn't come back.

Thanks for reminding me (in case I need it again)
