*please read*?

My nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree.

If everyone can remember something this simple, we could hide away some folks. Seriously..

Please read:

STROKE IDENTIFICATION:
During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little dribble - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to give the name paramedics) ..she said she had merely tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They get her cleaned up and got her a contemporary plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went going on for enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Ingrid's husband call later relating everyone that his wife had be taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they prearranged how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be next to us today. Some don't die. they end up within a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only take a minute to read this...
A neurologist says that if he can receive to a stroke victim in 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke... totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke approved, diagnosed, and then getting the long-suffering medically cared for inwardly 3 hours, which is tough.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE
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 sufferer may suffer severe brain damage when ancestors nearby come to nothing to recognize the symptoms of a stroke .
Now doctors say aloud a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple question:
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)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the character to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other , specifically also an indication of a stroke.

If he or she has trouble near ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 rapidly and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
