                           SPOT  A  STROKE F.A.S.T.

F.A.S.T. is an easy way to remember the sudden signs of a stroke.

F- Face Drooping : Does one side of the face droop or is it numb? Ask the person to smile.

A- Arm Weakness: Is one arm weak or numb? Ask the person to raise

both arms. Does one arm drift downward?

S-Speech Difficulty: Is speech slurred, are they unable to 

understand? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence, like

"the sky is blue". Is the sentence repeated correctly?

T-Time to Call 911: If the person shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call 911 and get them to the 

hospital immediately. Beyond F.A.S.T.- other symptoms you should know: Sudden numbness or weakness in the leg, confusion, trouble seeing in both eyes, trouble walking, loss of balance and/or sudden severe headache with no known cause.
