    Default ID'ing a Stroke

    Good stuff to know..


    STROKE IDENTIFICATION:
    During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. (they offered to call ambulance)
    They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm , Ingrid passed away.)
    She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today.
    Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.. It only takes a minute to read this...

    STROKE IDENTIFICATION:
    A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

    RECOGNIZING A STROKE

    Remember the '3' steps, STR . Read and Learn!
    Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster.
    The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
    Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

    S * Ask the individual to SMILE .
    T * = TALK. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (eg 'It is sunny out today').
    R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .


    If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 immediately!! and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

    Totally great information to know. Not foolproof, however.

    A few years ago, I woke up and the whole side of my face felt, somehow, different. I looked in a mirror and the right side of my face was sagging. That side of my mouth was actually touching my chin. My eye was bulging. In a panic, I literally ran to my doctor's office a few blocks away. I burst into the office where the doctor was in the waiting room confering with the nurse. "Doctor, doctor," I screamed, "I've think I've had a stroke." The doctor, one of those old-fashioned, unflappable types, calmly turned to me and said, "How did you get here?" I told him I ran all the way. He looked me straight in the eye and said, "Then you didn't have a stroke."

    Turns out I had Bell's Palsy, a neurological disorder typically brought on by stress. It lasted a few agonizing months but, with proper treatment I eventually returned to normal.

    All that said, better safe than sorry and those pointers are good to know.

    Something related to this

    I have to agree with this.

    My father had a stroke in 2002. The early signs were the night before he yelled that everything was spinning. He later ate an orange and the next day he went to the hospital ( Kaiser). The "QUAK" that observed him found no signs of anything. My mom said she couldn't figure out why the doctor didn't find anything wrong. She then takes my Dad to her DR and diagnosised my dad having small severe strokes , and those were the signs. The very next day he had the Big One (meaning stroke) that paralyzed him on his right side. In 2005 on a early Saturday Morning ( about 9 ) my mom did her early routine of taking my dad outside, were he tried to stand up to cut his bushes, drink his coffee and go eat his favorite sandwich ( avocado). My mom wheels him in before she has to go to work and they talk about the surgery that will take place in the next few days. A pump to be placed inside of him to help him stand and maybe even walk again. He was so exicited. around 11 am he started yelling out loud that the pain in his head hurts and that it's travling from one side to the other. I later learned that day it was a hemoragic stroke. The worse you can have. Some have mistaken it for an anuersm, but the test show it was hemoragic. No signs, no warnings, no symptoms. It just takes you. Sad to say my father passed on that morning. As I truely miss him dearly, him not only being my father, but my best friend, The Dr's, the staff, friends and family took good care of him in ICU, and now it was time to say goodbye. As I truely believe that he didn't suffer at all, it is the worst one you can have. So, when I read this I couldn't help but shed a few tears because it took me back to 2005 in the spring. So, having live through it, posting all this info about the signs are truely helpful. Get them to a hospital and get all the info you can. Get more than one Dr's opinion and follow all the orders the Dr's or speacialist asign you. It helps ALOT. Take Care folks and Happy New Years!!

    Sorry to hear that buddy. My condolences.

    My Dad had an aneurysm in his frontal lobe about 5 years ago or so. He was SO very lucky to survive it. Minor strokes have been common since and that's one reason that prompted me to post this.

    Some of you will remember the stroke I had back in 2002. Man was I lucky. I woke up on a Sunday Morning, I couldnt speak, walk straight, see straight, etc.

    I then did the complete wrong thing, I slept all day.

    Again, being totally lucky, went to the Dr. on Monday, got a cat scan of my brain and was found to have had a stroke. I spent the next week in the hospital.

    They came to the conclusion that my cholesterol was really high which caused my stroke. I couldnt drive for a few weeks. I fully recovered about a month later, my vision was off for quite some time.

    Guys and gals I was lucky, please get regular physicals and have your blood work done when you go to the Doctor. I wouldnt wish the scare I had on anyone.

    The local Sportscaster for KSBW TV in Salinas had a stroke while he was on the air. Luckily for him the main anchorman knew what was going on and they rushed him to the hospital where he spent three weeks.

    If it wasn't for the heads-up action he'd be dead.

    No, but my experience isn't with that. My Dad had a full blown aneurysm right there smack dab in the middle of his brain caused by a venus malformation, which is a little nugget of blood vessels that kind of clumps together and puts an unnatural amount of blood pressure on the walls of the vessels which eventually balloons/stretches it until it eventually bursts. He had headaches for years prior but didn't put it together until he got pissed off at something one day and his head exploded. Literally 90 percent of these result in death before getting to the hospital. Luckily there was an ambulance stationed on call about two blocks from where he dropped that was able to stabilize him and got him to the hospital and in to surgery with one of the country's best neurosurgeons that just happened to have an opening all within about 2 hours. Otherwise, he'd be gone for sure.

    Anyways, this wasn't a hemoragic stroke, but the similarities I'm sure make it equivalent (clot causing bleeding vs aneurysm...both mean brain bleeding), as well as the survival rate.
