    STROKE:

    STRO

    KE IDENTIFICATION

    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 t ough.

    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 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 person to SMILE.








    T *

    [B

    ]Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
    (i.e. It is sunny out

    today.)[/B]






    [COLOR=black][

    /COLOR]
    R *

    [B

    ]Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH

    ARMS.
    [/B]

    If

    he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the

    symptoms to the

    dispatcher.

    [

    SIZE=4]New Sign of a Stroke --- Stick out Your

    Tongue
    [/SIZE]

    An

    other '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.




    If these are true ... knowledge is power!




    Never argue with ignorant people! They pull you down to THEIR level, and then they BEAT YOU with experience. Who said that!? I don't know, but tis gold I tell'ya!!

    Thanks Mobes. This is

    incredibly important stuff to know.

    Also, with heart conditions, if a doctor catches it before it becomes

    a problem your odds are very high you can keep it from killing you, like 85% or something. If you wait for a

    heart attack before getting help, the odds are unfortunately very high, like 60%, that the condition will

    kill you. I am estimating on the percentages, but I think fairly close.

    I'm getting ready for a thorough

    physical and heart screening, and I recommend everyone do this on occasion.

    The key to avoiding a

    stroke is maintaining bp, eat right and healthy, distress free enviornment, good social network, good deep REM

    sleep, purified omega 3, and exercise.
