I wrote a blog once how to tell if a person was having a stroke. Its not easy. A friend read it, happened to be by a person; the person starts acting “weird”. My friend does the easy steps; it was a stroke, “how many know about these steps?” I am asked, well, I hope millions, once you know how; its not that tough! my friend said write another blog, tell a quick story about the true story about an afternoon BBQ where a lady trips, cleans up, eats, is a bit shaken, but seems to have a good time the rest of the afternoon. Its now 6:00p.m.and she is dead from a stroke which she got during the afternoon.
Read the following words slowly: A neurologist will tell you if they can get to the stroke victim within 3 hours, THEY CAN TOTALLY REVERSE THE EFFECTS OF A STROKE!
1. IF YOU THINK A PERSON MAY HAVE HAD A STROKE; ASK THEM TO SMILE.
2. ASK THE PERSON TO TALK AND AND SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (COHERENTLY)
3. ASK THE PERSON TO TO STICK OUT THEIR TONGUE, IF IT GOES TO ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER, ITS NOT GOOD.
4. HAVE THEM RAISE THEIR ARMS if just one thing I just mentioned, the person is unable to perform: call 911 now:
Iwant you never to have to do this. Its better, however, to know and grab 3 hours and have a shot at saving a life! You will like how that feels!
Good Health to you and your family!
