Recognizing Strokes

If someone is experiencing symptoms of a stroke, call 911 immediately. Every minute counts to save a stroke patient from long-term damage or death.

To check for stroke symptoms, remember the F.A.S.T. test:

Face — Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?

Arm — Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?

Speech — Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Does the speech sound slurred or strange?

Time — Time is critical. If you observe any of these signs, call 911 immediately.
