    STROKE IDENTIFICATION - learn it

    INFORMATION EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW........................
    Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue


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

    Please read:

    STROKE IDENTIFICATION:

    During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) .she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

    They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening

    Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

    It only takes a minute to read this...

    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.

    RECOGNIZING A S TROKE

    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 victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.





    STROKE:Remember the 1st Three Letters....S.T.R.
    Four letters...S.T.R.O.

    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)
    (I.e. 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 emergency numberimmediatelyand describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

    New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick OUT Your Tongue

    NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other,that is also an indication of a stroke.
    A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

    Pass it on to all your email friends, It can save people from a terrible life.

    Our next door neighbour's...... She worked at David Jones, husband was bad, drank, hit, swore etc. Son, my mate, use to live under the house with his dog for weeks on end, i would go to him with food and water. His father was abusive, eventually one night when my mate was older, and fit, his fater came home drunk, and started hitting his wife, my mate stood up for his mother, king hitting and knocking his dad out, his mother had a stroke.

    She lost all control of the left of her body, couldn't speak. My mate was devistated, only 16 at the time. His father moved out into a caravan.

    She was a lovely lady who deserved better, and could have been helped if it was now.
