Stroke has a new indicator #copied

🍃 *Stroke has a new indicator.*

*Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator - the Tongue*

🍃 *Senario :- During a BBQ, a woman 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, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.*

🍃 *Jane's husband called later to say that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away)*

*She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ.*

*Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today.*

🍃 *A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can 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.*


🍃 *Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify.*

*Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster.*

*When people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke, the stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage . Some don't die; instead they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition.*

*Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions* *(Remember the First Three Letters of* 🍃 *STROKE* 🍃
🍃 *S. T. R. ):*

✅ S *Ask the individual to SMILE.*

✅ T  *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A *SIMPLE SENTENCE* *(Coherently)*
*(e.g. Chicken Soup)*

✅ R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.*

🍃 *If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.*

🍃 *New Sign of a Stroke -*

✅ *Stick out Your Tongue!*

*NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his or her 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.*

✅ Will you send this along? I have done my part. Will you?  😊
