Neurologists say if they can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours they can totally reverse the effects of a stroke....

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and fell – Embarrassed she recovered and assured everyone that she was fine and had just tripped because of her new shoes.

They got her a new plate of food and she went on enjoying herself for the rest of the meal before she left with her husband.

Her husband called later to say that his wife had been taken to the hospital and had died. She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ.

If someone had recognized the symptoms and called for help she may have been fine today ....

RECOGNIZING A STROKE
One simple test of a stroke is to ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue.

If it is 'crooked', goes to one side or the other that is an indication of a stroke.

Also use the first three letters STR. as a guide to ask questions to recognize a stroke


S  *
Ask the person to SMILE.
T  *
Ask the person to TALK (Coherently) (I.e. It is sunny out)
R
  *Ask The person to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If they have trouble with ANY of these, call emergency
