Blood Clots/Stroke — They Now Have a Fourth lndicator – the Tounge
SENARIO : During a BBQ , a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she was was assured everyone thatshe wa sfine .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 appered a bit shaken up ,Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of ther evening .
Janes husband called later to say that his wife had been taken to hospital – (at 6:00PM Jane passed away ). she had suffered a stroke at the BBQ .
Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke ,perhaps Jane would be with us today

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify , unfortunatetly the lack of awereness spells disaster.
When people nearby fail to recognise the symptoms of stroke ,the stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage .Some dont die ,instead they end up in a helpless ,hopeless condition . Now doctors say a bystander can recognise a stroke by asking 3 simple questions ( Remember the 1st 3 letters of STROKE .
S * Ask the individual to SMILE
T* Ask the individual to TALK & SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE ( Coherently eg chicken soup )
R*Ask the individual to RAISE BOTH ARMS
If he or she has trouble with anyone of hese tasks,call emegerncy number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher
NEW SIGN OF A STROKE –
Stick out your tounge !
NOTE* Another sign of a stroke is this .Ask the person to stick their tounge out , if the tounge is croocked ,if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indicator of a stroke .
