Stroke warning signs

31 July, 2012 ,

Stroke is a medical emergency, immediately recognizing and responding to its warning signs can significantly improve survival and recovery.

This is the reason why the Heart and Stroke Foundation has launched a new awareness campaign, called “It’s time to have the S-TALK“.

We are pleased to partner with the Heart and Stroke Foundation to help spread the world about the warning signs of stroke. Here they are:

  • Weakness – Sudden loss of strength or sudden numbness in the face, arm or leg, even if temporary.
  • Headache – Sudden severe and unusual headache
  • Trouble speaking – Sudden difficulty speaking or understanding or sudden confusion, even if temporary.
  • Dizziness – Sudden loss of balance, especially with any of the above signs.
  • Vision problems – Sudden trouble with vision, even if temporary.

Call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number if you or anyone you know experiences these signs of stroke.
