You can help someone survive a potential stroke by knowing these 4 simple identifiers. We’ve also included a 60 second video that will help identify a potential stroke victim. Take the time to learn these signs. It may help to save a life.
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three  four simple questions:
- Ask the individual to SMILE
- Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
- Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS
- Stick out Your Tongue
Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. Read More: http://www.reddit.com/r/LifeProTips/comments/1831pi/lpt_4_simple_ways_to_identify_a_potential_stroke/
