F.A.S.T. - A Simple Test

F.A.S.T. represents a simple test to check for stroke symptoms:

FACE

Ask the person to smile, does one side of his face droop?

ARMS

Ask the person to raise both arms, does one arm drift downward?

SPEECH

Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Can she repeat the sentence correctly?

TIME

If the person shows any of these symptoms, time is important.

Call 9-1-1 or get to a hospital fast... brain cells are dying.
