STROKE HAS A NEW INDICATOR

STROKE: Remember these 1st Three Letters….. S. T. R.

STROKE IDENTIFICATION:

RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S * Ask the individual to SMILE.

T * Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE
(Coherently…example – It is sunny out today.)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he/she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
