Woman Shares Video Of Herself Having A Minor Stroke To Help Others Know The Signs
February 14, 2017
The acronym FAST is excellent for noticing strokes. It stands for:
Face - ask the person to smile really big. You're looking to see if there is any drooping.
Arms - ask the person to raise their arms like they are holding a tray. Palms up. You're looking to see if one side had more strength.
Speech - ask them to say a simple sentence. "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." They'll sound drunk, trouble saying certain words and slurring.
Time - note when the symptoms started to tell the first responder or 911 operator if you haven't already called
If ANY ONE of these tests is positive, call 911 IMMEDIATELY. One positive test means a 71% chance of a stroke!
Do not wait and see if it'll get better. Do not try to tough it out. Do not try to "just breathe and relax". Call 911.
In the video below, Stacey Yepes, 49, could sense she was beginning to have a stroke. To ensure others could see what was happening to her, she pulled over, took out her smartphone and began recording.
