Info: Is It A Stroke? Is It A Heart Attack?|
I just received this and thought
it was a good idea to it pass on..
Please study and check it out with your doctor.
A Stroke?<br> This might be a lifesaver if we can
remember the three questions! Is It a Stroke?
symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately,
the lack of awareness spells disaster for the stroke victim. A
stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail
to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say any
bystander can recognize a ! stroke by asking three simple
questions: Ask the individual to smile.
Ask him or her to
raise both arms.
Ask the person to speak a simple
If he or she has trouble with any of these
tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the
After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers
could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech
problems, researchers urged the general public to learn the
They presented their conclusions at the
American Stroke Association's annual meeting last February.
Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis
and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.
Is It A Heart AttacK?
A cardiologist says if
everyone who gets this information relays it to 10 people, you
can bet that at least one life will be saved.
It could save your life!!
Let's say it's 6.15 P.M. and
you're driving home (alone of course), after an unusually hard
day on the job. You're really tired, upset, and frustrated.
Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that
starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You
are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home.
Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it
that far. You have been trained in CPR, ! but the guy that
taught the course did not tell you howto perform it on
HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN
ALONE Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart
attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating
improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10
seconds left before losing consciousness.
victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very
vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough,
and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing
sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough
must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until
help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating
normally again Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and
coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood
circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it
regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can
get to a hospital.
Tell as many people as possible about
this. It could save their lives!!
