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


    My friend sent this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks. Seriously Please read:

    STROKE IDENTIFICATION:

    During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) and 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, 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 BBQ. 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...

    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

    Thank God 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 S MILE.

    T * Ask the person to T ALK to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE(Coherently) (i.e. It is sunny out today)

    R * Ask him or her to R AISE BOTH ARMS.

    NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their

    tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other

    that is also an indication of a stroke. If he or she has trouble with

    ANY ONE of these tasks, call123immediately !! and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

    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.​


    My Regards to you all
    and
    إن شاء الله ما تشوفون شر .. :)

    It seems to me to be incomplete

    because you said to ask the person to smile
    What happens if the person smiles, is that a good or bad sign?
    What happens if he doesn't smile, is it a good or bad sign?

    The only thing i got was if the person's tongue was crooked then thats a bad sign, am i right?

    sorry, I thought it was clear that's why i didn't write it

    most people at that situation will not be able to Smile, and if they tried doing so you will come to recognize it at that situation there smile is quite not normal.

    The same thing would happen if you ask them to say just a simple sentence, where they will just feel unable to talk easily and you will feel that or think that _if they tried to speak_ that they are suffering a headache

    The same goes if you ask them / him/ her to raise their arms up
    they would not be able to do so just as normal people,
    you might first think that they are little bit dizzy , but actually these are some tests to discover STROKE and try to do something valuable at the right short time.

    Thanks Brother for being here
    :)
    Its my pleasure

    Thanks again

    These are the same symptoms that occur to any patient at an ill state!
    For example after a coma!
