How to Recognize a Stroke

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. A stroke victim may suffer permanent brain damage when people fail to recognize what's happening. Now, doctors say any bystander can recognize a stroke, simply by asking three questions:

* ask the individual to smile.
* ask him or her to raise both arms.
* ask the person to speak a simple sentence.

If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 911 immediately, and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. Researchers are urging the general public to learn to ask these three questions quickly, to someone they suspect of having a stroke. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of a stroke, and prevent permanent brain damage.

The warning signs of a stroke are:

* Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body.
* Sudden confusion, trouble speaking, or understanding.
* Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes.
* Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.
* Sudden, severe headache with no known cause.



  1. Hey. Thank you. Please tell me Two Dogs didn't have a stroke?

  2. I think 2d and I connected telepathically (sp?). My father-in-law had a mild stroke and I had been thinking about how to tell. Voilla, 2d came across. I'll bet that because of all the high blood pressure over the KU vs KSU game Saturday night, a lot of people needed the information. Two Dogs gives stokes, he doesn't have one.

  3. The promise of a politician is not worth a bucket of warm spit.
