      Overview of Stroke

      A stroke is a life-threatening condition that happens when part of your brain does not have enough blood flow.  This most commonly happens because of a blocked artery or bleeding in your brain.  Without a steady supply of blood, the brain cells in that area start to die from a lack of oxygen.


      To recognize the warning signs of a stroke, remember to think to BE FASTuploaded picture

      • B. Be watchful for a sudden loss of balance.
      • E. Look out for sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes. Are they experiencing double vision?
      • F. Ask the person to smile. Look for a droop on one or both sides of their face, which is a sign of muscle weakness or paralysis.
      • A. A person having a stroke often has muscle weakness on one side. Ask them to raise their arms. If they have a one-sided weakness (and didn’t have it before), one arm will stay higher while the other will sag and drop downward.
      • S. Strokes often cause a person to lose their ability to speak. They might slur their speech or have trouble choosing the right words.
      • T. Time is critical, so don’t wait to get help! If possible, look at your watch or a clock and remember when symptoms start. Telling a healthcare provider when symptoms started can help the provider know what treatment options are best for you.
