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

PASSING
SOME INFO ALONG!
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!
 

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

 
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.
 

 
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?
