In addition, he has a particular interest and expertise in management of vein problems, which he diagnoses

Recognizing A Stroke
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours, he may be able to
totally reverse the effect of a stroke. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized,
diagnosed and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours.
Sometimes, symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of
awareness can spell disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when
people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms.
Remember the “3” Steps: STR
S Ask the individual to SMILE
TAsk the person to TALK and SPEAK A
SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
R Ask him/her to RAISE BOTH ARMS
If the individual has trouble with ANY ONE of these
tasks, call an emergency number immediately and
describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
Another “sign” of a stroke is this: Ask the person to
‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is crooked, if it goes
to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
