> RECOGNIZING A STROKE -
 The stroke victim may suffer
>brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a
>stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking
>three simple questions:
>
>
>*Ask the individual to SMILE.
>
>
>*Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
>
>
>*Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently). ( It is sunny
>out today )
>
>
>If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 9-1-1
immediately
>and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
>
>
>After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify
>facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged
the
>general public to learn the three questions. They presented their
>conclusions at the American Stroke Association's annual meeting last
>February. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis
>and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.
>
>
>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.

>BE A FRIEND AND SHARE THIS ARTICLE WITH AS MANY FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE. It
