To recognize a stroke, remember the first four letters of the acronym, S,T,R,O and ask four simple questions.

S – SMILE; should be even

T – TALK a simple sentence coherently.

R – RAISE both arms; difficulty indicates a stroke

O – stick OUT the tongue; deviation to one side indicates a stroke.

If a person has trouble with any of these tasks, dial 911 and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
