BE FAST is an acronym to help you quickly recognize the common signs of a stroke. If any of these signs are present, call 9-1-1 immediately.
Do they have problems standing or moving? Are they dizzy?
Do they have loss of vision in one or both eyes? Maybe a portion of one eye?
Does one side of the face droop or is it numb? Ask the person to smile. Is the person's smile uneven or lopsided?
Is one arm weak or numb? Have the person raise their arms.
Is the person unable to speak or hard to understand? Is the person able to correctly repeat what you are saying?
If someone shows one, some or all of these symptoms, even if symptoms pass, call 9-1-1 and tell them you think the person is having a stroke. This can help get the person to the hospital immediately. Each second is important and could mean brain loss.
