 Stroke test - good info to know

This information appears to be true, at least snopes.com says it is.

STROKE

A true story:

Susie stumbled and fell. Her friend, Sherry, saw this happen. Being very concerned, she had the insight to ask Susie the 3 questions below.

Suzie failed all three test-questions, so 911 was called. Even though she had normal blood pressure readings and did not appear to be suffering a stroke (she could converse to some extent with the Paramedics) they took her to the hospital right away. Susie suffered brain damage after a massive stroke, but is recouping at an incredible pace. So simple - this literally saved Susie's life - Some angel had previously sent this advice to Suzie's friend and she followed it exactly.

Read and Learn the 3 steps!
A stroke occurs when oxygen fails to reach some part of the brain. Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim will ( - WILL! -) suffer brain damage if people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke, and take action. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking the victim 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 (e.g. "It is sunny out today"Wink yeah right.

If he or she has trouble with ANY of these tasks, call 911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify facial weakness / arm weakness / and speech problems, researchers now urge 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.

A cardiologist says that if everyone who gets this email sends it to another 10 people, you can bet that at least one life will be saved!

 Stroke test - good info to know

Good post Ken! This last Sunday a elderly lady at our church stumbled and fell. She went down hard but after a few minutes to compose herself and some questioning from the pastor. We helped her up. She said she was alright and at first refused to go to the hospital. Outside several members were concerned about her but felt that she would just sit in the emergency room for hours waiting to be seen. I voiced my concerns for her along the lines of what you just posted. I also told them that even though she may seem OK; she may be in mortal danger from an internal injuring or bleeding. I also suspected that she may have had a stroke. We went back in to insist she go to the hospital and found that she was indeed in severe pain when she tried to stand up. We ended up carrying her to her car in her chair and one of her friends drove her to the emergency room. Turns out that she broke her pelvis but was otherwise OK. I still wonder if she did have a stroke though. She said she tripped over a chair leg at the table. Anyhow, I hear she is doing better but has to remain at the hospital for a few days for observation.

 Stroke test - good info to know

Sorry about straying slightly off from the original post.

I've lost a lot of friends recently to heart attacks and have had a bunch saved just in time.

Many of them have been treated for symptons similar to having stomach indigestion problems. Actually they have been artery blockages. Some of the guys have been slightly overweight but not always. I lost a friend that was only 54 and looked very healthy and not overweight at all. If you are not feeling quite up to paar, go see a doctor!
