three questions to ask to determine if a person is having a stroke

2 posts in this topic

i was sent this the other day and thought it mite be a good thing to post. if some one seems to be having problems with thier speech,walking, etc. here are three questions to ask that person to see if they may be having a stroke. first ask them to smile. if one of the corners of their mouth droops, this is a sign. second ask them to put both arms above their head. if they can only do this with one side;this is another sign. then ask them to talk to you in a complete sentence. if they can't and have the other symtems; call 9-1-1 and tell the operator what/how you tested the person. they could possibly be having a stroke.

If you or someone around you is having any one of those symptoms call 911 immediately. Don't waste time seeing if they have more than one. If they are having a stroke (I beleive they are calling it a TBA this year) They need o2 and medical attention NOW. Unless you are a doctor you could be wasting valuable time trying to diagnose. Emergency Medical Service personell don't mind responding to calls that turn out to be nothing. Unless of course you're a frequent flyer.
