Know the signs of stroke
A stroke is an emergent medical condition, so if you recognize the signs of a stroke, it is crucial to seek immediate care. Being able to recognize the signs and symptoms of a stroke is a potentially life-saving skill. The sooner a stroke patient receives medical intervention, the better the outcome.
Faster treatment can help reduce the long-term effects of a stroke and help reduce the likelihood of developing permanent damage.
Remember, if you suspect someone is experiencing a stroke, act FAST:
- F(ace): Ask the person to smile. Does one side of their face droop?
- A(rms): Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one of their arms drift downward?
- S(peech): Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange?
- T(ime): If you observe any of these symptoms, call 911 immediately.
