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 3 simple questions:
S - *Ask the person to SMILE.
T - *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE. (Coherently)
R - *Ask him/her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
