    Recognizing a Stroke

    Neurologists say if they get to a stroke victim within 3 hours they can totally reverse the effects of a stroke. The key is getting a stroke recognized and diagnosed.

    Remember these 4 steps: STRS

    • S – Ask the individual to SMILE
    • T – Ask the person to TALK and speak a simple sentence coherently, like “It is sunny out today.”
    • R – Ask him or her to RAISE both arms
    • S – STICK out your tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, or goes to one side or the other, the person may have had a stroke
    • If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
