Stroke

Minutes  matter in treatment of stroke so the plan is to act F.A.S.T

Stroke happens when part of the brain is being deprived of blood flow and oxygen, often due to a clot.  The sooner the clot can be dissolved or removed, the less permanent damage to the brain, and the more likely the person is to recover well  –  less likely to have permanent loss of speech, muscle movement or other functions.

 

So call 000 immediately
