you could SAVE someones life with this simple information!!!

You can Save someone's life by sharing this.

STROKE IDENTIFICATION:
During a party, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. (they offered to call ambulance)

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm , Ingrid passed away.)
She had suffered a stroke at the party . Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid 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...

STROKE IDENTIFICATION:

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.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE

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 * = TALK. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (eg 'It is sunny out today').
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .

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

NOTE : Another 'sign' of a stroke is
1. Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue.
2. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A prominent cardiologist says if everyone who see's this shares it; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

AND IT COULD BE YOUR OWN!!!

My father had a small stroke last year but because he recognized it early, and my mother saw the signs, he was able to get into the ER and get medical attention within the first hour. He's 100% back to normal now. Recognizing the signs is hugely important, so thank you Itinkso for posting this.

MASSIVE BUMP!!!!! this morning i drove to school which idon't usually do and as i turned into the school i noticed the lollipop man looking a bit odd.....he was wobbling around and kids were waiting on all sides of the road...i parked and ran back down and by the time i got there he'd got himself into his car...he was sweaty and clammy and STRAIGHT AWAY i remembered STR...he couldn't do any of them so i called an ambulence and waited with him til they came.....i explained to the medics and they told me i'd probably just saved his life with quick thinking!!!! so REMEMBER IT.......STR!!!!...it works!!!!
