Test to help detect stroke symptoms F.A.S.T

February 19th, 2009

I find these steps very useful and simple to decide whether a person is going to STROKE!

F = FACE
Ask the person to smile.  Does one side of the face droop?

A = ARM
Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?

S = SPEECH
Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence.  Does the speech sound slurred or strange?

T = TIME
If a person has trouble with any these simple commands, immediate emergency attention is required.
