  1. RECOGNIZING A STROKE

    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)

    R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

    If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher don't pay attendtion to the person saying they are alright, they don't recognize there is a problem.

  2. VERY useful information that everyone can use.
