Signs of Strokes
As per some neurologists, there are few ways to identify stroke. So, if someone falls down near to you and he/she feels a bit diminished, just ask him/her few questions and you can recognize whether that person has suffered a stroke or not.
These questions are:
- Ask the individual to SMILE
- Ask the person to TALK (just ask to speak a simple sentence of 4-5 words)
- Ask the person to RAISE both arms
There is one more sign to identify stroke. Ask the person to stick out his/her tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, or if it goes to one side, then that’s an indication of stroke. So, whenever you see someone clotting after an accident, ask the person above questions and you can save one life. Saving one life means giving happiness to many.
So, always remember STR (Smile, Talk, Raise).
