Stroke

You may know to get urgent help for a heart attack, but did you know the signs of stroke are just as serious? Think of stroke as a brain attack, which happens when blood flow to the brain is blocked and cells begin to die.

Stroke can cause death or permanent disability. Treatment is most effective within the first three hours - and the sooner the treatment, the better chance of survival.

There are many factors that you can control by living a healthy lifestyle. If you or someone you know have these risk factors, talk with your doctor about developing a plan to reduce your risks.

What are the signs of stroke?

When blood flow to the brain is blocked, that's when you're against the clock. When you suspect someone is having a stroke, think FAST:

FACE
Is one side of the face drooping or numb? Ask the person to smile.
ARM
Is one arm weak or numb? Ask the person to raise both arms.
SPEECH
Is speech slurred? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence, like "the sky is blue."
TIME
If the person shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call 9-1-1 immediately.

These warning signs may last only a few moments, then go away. Even in this case, do not ignore these symptoms. These could be "mini-strokes" which are caused by a serious underlying condition that requires urgent medical help.
