Stroke Awareness Month – Know The Signs

The acronym F.A.S.T. can help you know the signs of a stroke.

(We’re teaming up with MU Health Care for Stroke Awareness Month, and Scotty is sharing what he learns in blogs throughout the month.)

When a stroke happens, it keeps oxygen from getting to the brain.  Getting to help in a hurry is VERY important.  So knowing the signs is key.

F.A.S.T. can help you recognize the signs of stroke.

“F” is for face.  Face drooping: Can the person smile, or is one side of the face drooping or numb?

If so, get to a doctor or hospital immediately!
