Brain - Blood clot - Please read.. you could save a life.




A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.




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 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 * = TALK. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (eg "It is sunny out today").

R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .


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


NOTE : Another 'sign' of a stroke is

1. Ask the person to 'stick' out their TONGUE.

2. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

My grandmother had a stroke a few months before she died. It was the saddest thing.

I'm sorry to hear, Questioner. It's hard in circumstances like this. My grandma had a stroke, an occupational therapist seen her in order to regain skills although her memory is a tad bit affected and there are problems related to speech. But as much support and love she's given calms down the additional fears.


:sl: for the useful info br. dot.
