Sensibilisation et prévention des accidents vasculaires cérébraux sans médicaments
Stroke Awareness and Prevention Without Drugs
Did you know that every 40 seconds, someone in the United States experiences a stroke? Knowing the signs and symptoms of stroke can perhaps help you save a life. Remember, during a stroke, every second counts!
My friend sent this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word, and I agreed. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks. Seriously.
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.
