F.A.S.T. - A Simple Test

A simple test to check for stroke symptoms:


Ask the person to smile, does one side of his face droop?


Ask the person to raise both arms, does one arm drift downward?


Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Can he/she repeat the sentence correctly?


If the person shows any of these symptoms, time is important.
