How to Detect Stroke

Posted on at

Every so often, symptoms of a stroke are hard to distinguish. Sadly, the lack of knowledge leads to tragedy. Please check this and be informed. It is better educated than regret.

If a person stumbles in any certain circumstance, always get the idea that he or she might be a victim of stroke. Let him do the following and check if he can follow through.

S –SMILE. Tell the person to smile.

T - TALK. Tell the person to speak a simple sentence (articulately). For example, tell him to say “it is sunny out today.”

R -  RAISE. Tell him or her to RAISE both arms.

In case the person has trouble with any one of these tasks, call the ambulance and explain the symptoms to the correspondent.


Ask the person to stick out his or her tongue. If the tongue is bent, if it goes to one side or the other, that is a sign of a stroke as well.
