A neurologist says he could remove the effects of stroke if he can get to the person concerned within 3 hours. Says the trick is to recognize a stroke within three hours, and it is simple.
Heres how you can recognize someone having a stroke:
- Ask the person to smile (he will fail)!
- Ask the person to speak a simple sentence (for example: Today is a beautiful day.) He will problems pronouncing!
- Ask the person to raise both arms (will not be able to or only partially)!
- Ask the person stick his tongue out (if the tongue is bent, swings from one side to another, it is also a sign of a stroke)!
If a person has a problem with one of the above steps, immediately call an emergency and describe the symptoms.
Cardiologists say, if we share these information to at least 10 people, be sure that a life can be saved.
