Stroke has a new indicator - really Worth Reading

B lood Clots/Stroke - They  Now Have a Fourth Indicator,  the  Tongue

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

Remember the 1st Three  Letters..... S. T. R. 


During a BBQ, a  woman 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, 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 - (at 6:00 pm  Jane 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.


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.)

  * Ask him or her to RAISE  BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has  trouble with ANY ONE of 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. 

I have done my part.  Will  you?
