Recognition of Stroke Symptoms
Remembering this simple information, you can save people's lives.
How does the stroke occur?
During the outdoor recreation, the woman stumbled and fell - she assured everyone that everything was fine with her (friends insisted on calling an ambulance) that she just stumbled over a stone, because has not yet got used to her new shoes. She continued to enjoy the rest despite the fact that she seemed somewhat "not herself" ...
The neurologist subsequently stated that if he could reach the victim within three hours, he would completely eliminate the consequences of the stroke.
And in the evening her husband called and said that his wife was taken to the hospital (at 6 pm she was gone). During the picnic, as it turned out, she had a stroke.
Three main methods of recognizing the symptoms of stroke (UZP)
- U - Ask the victim to SMILE .
- Z - Ask him to SPEAK ( Ask for a coherent, simple sentence, for example: "The sun is shining outside the window" )
- P - Ask him to RUN BOTH HANDS .
Attention is another way to recognize a stroke (other than the aforementioned ones): ask the victim to BEWARE LANGUAGE . If the language is a curve or irregular shape and sinks to the side, then this is also a sign of a stroke.
If you noted a problem with the performance of these tasks, immediately call an ambulance and describe the symptoms to the physicians who came to the scene.
PS. Cardiologists assure that anyone who sends out this text to 10 people can be sure: at least one life he saved.
