Most people easily recognize when they need to “get in gear” to avoid negative repercussions at work or at home, but would you recognize if you needed to act fast in order to save someone’s life? Specifically, would you know if someone needed immediate medical attention because they were having a stroke?
A stroke is a medical emergency requiring immediate attention. It’s the fourth leading cause of death in the United States but many people don’t know the signs and symptoms. If you suspect that you or someone else is having a stroke it’s important to act immediately. It literally could be a matter of life or death.
Here is an easy way to recognize the signs of a stroke.
F: Face drooping or numbness
A: Arm weakness
S: Speech difficulty
T: Time to call 911
If you notice even one of these signs call 911. All three don’t have to be present.
