(一) 笑 叫病人笑 ﹔ (二) 講 叫病人講話﹐說一些簡 單句子 ﹔ (三) 舉 叫病人將雙手高舉 ﹔
如果病人不能輕易做到上述的動作﹐便有中風的可能。另外叫病人伸出舌頭﹐留意 條舌是否捲曲或者特別偏左或偏右。倘若有以上的疑點﹐應該馬上電 九一一 召救 護車﹐並向接線生敘述你所觀察的情況。救人一命﹐勝做七級浮屠。
My friend sent this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word, I agreed. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks. Seriously . . . please read:
During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. 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 afternoon. Ingrid's husband called later?saying that his wife had been taken to the hospital and 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 stroke victims?don't die, they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. Read on...
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within three hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke . . . totally. He said the trick was?having a stroke recognized, diagnosed and then getting the patient medically cared for within three hours, which is tough.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE:
Thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps.
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
Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out
their tongue . . . if the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the
other, that is also an indication of a stroke.
If he or she has trouble with any one of these tasks, call 911
immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to ten
people, you can bet at least one life will be saved?
