When you think it's a stroke:
Face: Is one side drooping?
Arms: Is one arm hard to lift?
Speech: Is speech slurred or confused?
Time: Quick action saves brain cells.
If you think it’s a stroke—or even if you’re not sure—call 9-1-1. Don’t go back to bed. Don’t wait. Call immediately.
Trust Your EMT
Depending on where you live and the severity of your symptoms, your EMT may recommend that you go to a nearby hospital or that you be taken directly to Strong Memorial Hospital.
