Stroke Warning Signs

See Warning Signs of Stroke? Act FAST!

The warning signs of stroke are sudden weakness of the face, arm or leg - most often on one side of the body.

Here is the simple test for stroke. Memorize them and commit to act F.A.S.T.:

  • F = FACE
    Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
  • A = ARM
    Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
  • S = SPEECH
    Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Does the speech sound slurred or strange?
  • T = TIME
    If you observe or experience any of these signs, remember that time is brain. Don't wait; call 911.
