What should a bystander do?

If you believe someone is having a stroke – if he or she suddenly loses the ability to speak, or move an arm or leg on one side, or experiences facial paralysis on one side –

call 911 immediately.

Remember The Symptoms of a Stroke!

"The symptoms of stroke are distinct because they happen quickly:
  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg (especially on one side of the body)
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause"

Have You or Someone You Know Had a Stroke?

Tell us what happened.  Was someone else present during the stroke?  How are you or the other person doing today?
