Did you know stroke victims can have their stroke effects greatly diminished and even reversed if seem by a doctor within 3 hours?
Sometimes a person suffering a stroke appears to be drunk. Here are some simple questions you, as a bystander, can ask them to determine if what you are seeing is a stroke.
- Ask them to smile
- Ask them to talk
- Ask them to raise BOTH arms
Also, ask the person to stick out their tongue. If the tongue goes to one side, that indicates a stroke.
What to do-
Call 911 and describe their symptoms depending on what test they fail!
Remember, the trick is to have the stroke recognized, diagnosed, and treated within 3 hours! (Go to URL)
