    Dear all

    Please read this and pass it on to your friends,


    STROKE : Remember The 1st Three Letters.... S.T.R.[​IMG]
    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) .....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, 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 : 00 pm 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 SMILE.
    T *
    Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
    (i.e. 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 999/911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

    New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

    NOTE : 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.
