Recognising stroke – think FAST

How do you recognise when someone is having a stroke? Think FAST:

  • Face – Check their face. Has their mouth drooped?
  • Arms – Can they lift both arms?
  • Speech – Is their speech slurred? Do they understand you?
  • Time – Time is critical. If you see any of these signs call 000  for an ambulance immediately.

Acting FAST could mean the difference between death or severe disability and  a good recovery.
