Recognition of stroke symptoms
By remembering this simple information, you can save lives.
How does a stroke happen?
While camping, a woman stumbled and fell - she assured everyone that everything was fine with her (her friends insisted on calling an ambulance) that she just stumbled on a stone, because not yet accustomed to their new shoes. She continued to enjoy the rest despite the fact that she seemed somewhat "not in herself" ...
The neurologist later stated that if he could get to the victim within three hours, he would completely eliminate the effects of the stroke.
In the evening her husband called and said that his wife was taken to the hospital (at 6 o'clock in the evening she was gone). During the picnic, as it turned out, she had a stroke.
Three main methods of recognition of stroke symptoms (PSD)
- W - Ask the victim to SMILE .
- З - Ask him to CONSIGN ( Ask to speak a coherently simple sentence, for example: “The sun is shining outside the window” )
- P - Ask him to LIFT BOTH HANDS .
Attention is another way to recognize a stroke (other than the above): ask the victim to LEAVE THE LANGUAGE . If the tongue is crooked or irregularly shaped and falls to the side, then this is also a sign of a stroke.
If you have noted the problem with the victim in carrying out these tasks, immediately call an ambulance and describe the symptoms of the doctors who arrived at the scene.
Ps. Cardiologists claim that everyone who sends this text to 10 people can be sure: he has saved at least one life.
