Save a Life~Identify a Stroke Victim

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage 93383

I have a very Dear Friend that had a stroke last week. She is still in the hospital and has no

feeling in her right side.  We are continuing to pray for a full recovery for her.

 

You may save a life is you can understand what a stoke victim is like.

 

 


 



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

 
STROKE  IDENTIFICATION: 

During a BBQ, a woman 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, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the  evening 

Jane's husband called later  telling everyone that his wife had been taken to  the hospital -
(at
6:00  pm  Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the  signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane 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. 

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 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?

Hi Ginger... I knew that if you get a stroke victim help within a couple of hours, it can be reversed... but I did not know those "tricks" for identifying. Thanks for sharing this life-saving information.

Interesting to note that diet, exercise and stress handling in advance will give anyone more of an edge on this robber and sabotager of life called stroke

My granddaughter works in a convenient store and of course many regular customers. One customer walked in sluggishly as she put it. Not her usual self and also a friend of my granddaughter. It was usually a Sprite and bag of chips. She made her friend sit for a moment when a police officer walked in and immediately they called for an ambulance. The young friend had a stroke. That was 3 weeks ago and she is still in the hospital. Only 24 years old. It can happen to anyone.

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of Stroke are very important. Just the time factor makes a difference. BTW, I will renew my CPR training next week.

People also think only "OLD" people have strokes, not true, I watched a program about a young healthy woman of 34 who had a devastating stroke which left her unable to talk or write initially. Good signs to know. thank you.
