                Blood   Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator...

                ... the  Tongue

                I   will continue to forward this every time it comes  

                If  everyone can remember  something this simple, we
                could save some folks..**

                Please read:

                STROKE   IDENTIFICATION:

                During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall -
                she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to
                call paramedics) .she said she had just tripped over a
                brick because of her new shoes.

                They got   her cleaned up and got her a new plate of
                food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went
                about enjoying herself the rest of the evening

                Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his
                wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Ingrid
                passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had
                they known how to identify the signs of a stroke,
                perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don't die.
                They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition   instead.

                It only takes a minute to read this...

                A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim
                within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a
                stroke..._totally_. He said the trick was getting a
                stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the
                patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

                RECOGNIZING A STROKE

                Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR .
                Read and Learn!**
                Sometimes  symptoms of a stroke are difficult to
                identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells
                disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain
                damage  when people nearby fail to recognize the 
                symptoms of a  stroke.*


                STROKE:*Remember   the 1st Three Letters....S.T.R.
                      Four letters...S.T.R.O.*

                Now   doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by
                asking three   simple questions:**

                S   **Ask  the  individual to SMILE.*
                T   **Ask  the  person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE
                SENTENCE  (Coherently)
                (I.e.  It is sunny out  today.)*
                R**Ask  him or  her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

                If  he or  she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks,
                call  emergency  number _immediately_ and describe  the
                symptoms to  the dispatcher.

                New   Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick *O*UT* Your   Tongue

                NOTE:   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.

                A   cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail
                sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one
                life will be   saved.

                *I  have  done my part. Will  you?*
