How to Detect Signs of Stroke and Get Emergency Care
Stroke symptoms come on suddenly and may include:
- Coordination problems, like dizziness and difficulty walking or standing
- Inability to speak or slurred speech
- Weakness in your legs, face or arms
- Vision problems, including blurry vision
If a loved one shows signs of stroke, follow the National Stroke Association’s recommendations and think F.A.S.T.:
- F = Face: If the person tries to smile, does one side of their face droop?
- A = Arms: Can they raise both arms at the same time? Or, does one arm drift downward?
- S = Speech: Ask your loved one to repeat a simple phrase. Does their speech sound different?
- T = Time: If you observe any of these signs, it’s time to dial 911. This is the quickest way to access emergency stroke care.
