What are the Signs to Look for When Someone is Having a Stroke?

It's important to remember the word FAST.  

*Face:  Is the mouth slanting down?  Unusual expression?

*Arm:  Is the arm numb?  And can you raise your arm?

*Speech:  Is the speech slurred?  Having trouble putting together words?

*Time:  Call 9-1-1.  Get to the emergency room as soon as possible!  The longer you wait....the more damage to the brain.

Go to the  Family Matters page at katu.com for more information.
