Something to share with Family, Friends, Neighbors.

Please keep this  going....
   

 
 

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



I  will continue to forward this every time it comes  around!


My  nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to post it and spread  the word.
I agree.

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 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.


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

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  an emergency number immediately and 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 e-mail sends it to  10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be  saved.


I  have done my part.  Will  you?

Dick, I read AR posts daily that have nothing to do with RE. I look at AR as an info xchange among friends and biz assoc and don't think everything always has to be about RE. But thanks for your feedback and for taking the time to read my post.

Lynda, I will cut and paste it and email it to you. Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks, everybody for your feedback and please do pass it along. I've had friends who have actually had strokes as I'm sure many of you have as well. It's good to network info like this with our sphere's of influence.
