- Can hit anyone and everyone!
During a nice summer party, a middle-aged woman (Berit) stumbled and fell. She quickly assured those around her that things were going well with her, even though several of them would call for an ambulance. She quickly blamed her for stumbling because of her new shoes.
They got her on her feet, brushed off the grass shrubs and served her a new plate of barbecue food and something good in the glass. Berit seemed a little shaken after her previous fall, but she seemed to enjoy herself for the rest of the evening.
Later in the evening - after the party - Berit's husband called to inform if she had been taken to hospital. She died at 19 p.m. 00:XNUMX CET.
Berit had suffered a stroke during the barbecue party which had developed with a fatal outcome. Had any of the guests known this information on how to recognize a blow - then someone might have saved her.
A neurosurgeon said that if he receives a victim within 3 hours, he can in most cases reverse the injuries completely. He says that the difficulties lie in the fact that the stroke must be recognized, diagnosed and treated within 3 hours to avoid excessive injuries. This is where general knowledge comes in - if you and I can learn the signs, then maybe we can save lives.

- FAST: A vital rule
There is a simple rule for remembering the clinical signs of stroke - namely the word FAST (ie 'fast' in English, as in that the treatment should be performed quickly).
F = FACE (Facial paralysis. CHECK: Ask the person to smile. SYMPTOM: Smile crooked)
A = ARM (Paralysis in the arm. CHECK: Ask the person to raise his hands over his head. SYMPTOM: Can't keep his arms raised.)
S = LANGUAGE (Language disorder. CHECK: Ask the person to say a sentence «The sun is shining today» SYMPTOM: Can not find the words)
T = SPEECH (Speech disorder. CHECK: Pronunciation. SYMPTOM: The person speaks indistinctly.)
For one or more of these FAST symptoms, call 113 and describe the symptoms of the emergency phone!
NEW BRAKE INDICATOR (IMPORTANT INFO):
- The tongue may indicate a stroke
A hitherto somewhat unknown indicator for Ola Nordmann, but well known in the medical world. Ask the person to stick out their tongue - if it is crooked and pulled towards one side then this can be a sign of a blow!
Several in the medical world, including several neurologists and cardiologists, agree that if more people recognized these signs and symptoms of stroke - then many could have received medical treatment earlier and saved their lives.
