            *Please keep this  going....

       INFORMATION EVERYONE  SHOULD KNOW.........................
Blood  Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the  Tongue

I  will continue to forward this every time it comes  around!

If everyone can remember  something this simple, we could save some  folks..

Please read:


During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and  took a little fall - she assured
everyone that she was fine  (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
 appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself  the rest of
the evening

Ingrid's husband called later  telling everyone that his wife had been taken
to the hospital  - (at 6:00 PM Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a
stroke  at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a  stroke,
perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don't die.  They end up in a
helpless, hopeless condition  instead.

It only takes a minute to read  this...

A neurologist says that if he can get to a  stroke victim within 3 hours he
can totally reverse the  effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick
was  getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the  patient
medically cared for within 3 hours, which is  tough.


Thank God for the  sense to remember the '3' steps, STR . Read and  Learn!*
*Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to  identify. Unfortunately,
the lack of awareness spells  disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe
brain damage  when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a
 stroke. *

*STROKE:*Remember  the 1st Three Letters....S.T.R.
        Four letters...S.T.R.O.
Now  doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three  simple
S  **Ask  the individual to SMILE.
*T  **Ask  the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE  (Coherently)
(I.e. It is sunny out  today.)
*R**Ask  him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If  he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call  emergency
number*immediately*and describe the symptoms to  the dispatcher.

New  Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick *O*UT* Your  Tongue

NOTE:  Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick'  out
his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one  side or the
other,that  is also an indication of a stroke.

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.
