Symptons of a Stroke - Recognition from the Mini Stroke Association
During a BBQ a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured
everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) and 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 6:00pm, 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.
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 getting to the
patient within 3 hours, which is tough.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE: Remember the "3" steps. Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify.
Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim
may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the
symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a by stander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
- Ask the individual to SMILE.
- Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
- Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE. (Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny out today)
If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 999 (in case of UK) or 9-1-1 (in case of USA)
or emergency hospital of the country immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher or person
answering the emergency call.
After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify
facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the
general public to learn the three questions.
They presented their conclusions at the American Stroke Association's annual meeting last
February. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis
and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.

It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after
the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead
he could drink.
Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based,
this period was called the honey month... which we know today as the honeymoon.
