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

  1. S – Ask the individual to SMILE
  2. T – Ask the person to TALK and speak a simple sentence coherently, like “It is sunny out today.”
  3. R – Ask him or her to RAISE both arms
  4. 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.

The quality and compassion of our patient care is enhanced through FCHC’s membership in these organizations:
