Three ways to recognize if someone has had a Stroke:
Tip from Susan: This is vital information I want you to have, and hopefully you will never need. If a person has had a stroke, the sooner he or she receives treatment, the better the chance of recovery.
Three Ways to Recognize if Someone has had a Stroke:
1) Ask the individual to SMILE;
2) Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS;
3) Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE.
If the person has trouble with any of these tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
