Recognizing A Stroke

blue-brain

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)

R *Ask them to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If they have trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 immediately.

New Sign of Stroke — Stick out Your Tongue!

Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’ or goes to one side, that is also an indication of stroke.

If everyone who reads this sends it to 10 people; at least one life may be saved.
