I got the information below from Beng as a forwarded email. Actually, I received similar emails several times already from the past and I still think that it is worth re-posting. If we’re informed, we will be able to save lives – that’s for sure.
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. Example: It is sunny out today.
R – Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
Now, there is a new sign of Stroke – ask the person to STICK OUT HIS/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 reads this sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
I have done my part. Will you?
