This 'Stroke' Information Saves Lives ~ Remember These 4 Indicators of Stroke!

***
*
Family Members! Friends! Neighbors!
In today's world virtually 
all of us have been, or will be 
affected in some way by 
STROKE.
*
*
There have been 3 accepted Indicators of STROKE.
Now there are 4 that anyone can apply to a 
possible VICTIM when a STROKE may
have occurred.
*
 When a person suffers a fall,
or any other trauma, or there is some change in 
a person's behavior, a
STROKE
may be the cause.
*
Remember These Principles:
*
~ASK THE PERSON TO SMILE.
*
~ASK THE PERSON TO SPEAK 
(Coherently I.E. "Chicken Soup").
*
~ASK THE PERSON TO RAISE BOTH ARMS.
*
Now there is a 4th Principle.....
*
~ASK THE PERSON TO 
STICK OUT THEIR TONGUE
*
If the person has TROUBLE with any of these maneuvers,
Call EMERGENCY Sources IMMEDIATELY!
*
Research and Statistics provide that when most
stroke victims are medically treated within
3 hours of the event, that victim's life is
likely to be saved with a full recovery.
