New Sign of Stroke!

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. I like 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 tongue.

If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
