 They say if you e.mail this to ten  people, you stand a chance of saving one life.  Will you send this  along?


     Blood Clots/Stroke  - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator,  the Tongue  



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


During a BBQ, a woman 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, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest  of the evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been  taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had  suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the  signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane 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.


Thank Goodness 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.)

 *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?
