To lower your risk for a first stroke, follow these guidelines from the National Stroke Association:
B – BALANCE – Watch the person walk. Is the person losing coordination or balance?
E – EYES – Ask about eyesight. Is the person having trouble seeing out of one or both eyes?
F – FACE – Ask the person to smile. Does their face droop down on one side or look uneven? A – ARM – Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? S – SPEECH – Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase such as “the sky is blue.” Do the words sound strange or slurred? T – TIME – Time is critical. If you notice any of the symptoms of stroke, call 911 immediately.
The faster a stroke patient receives treatment, the better the chances of recovery.
