Recognize Stroke Symptoms: the F.A.S.T test

September 21, 2014

FAST STROKE PHOTO

If you think someone may be having a stroke, act F.A.S.T. and do this simple test:

  • F= FACE: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
  • A = ARMS: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
  • S = SPEECH: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange?
  • T = TIME: If you observe any of these signs, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Note the time when any symptoms first appear. if given within 3 hours of the first symptom, there is an FDA-approved clot-buster medication that may reduce long-term disability for the most common type of stroke.

The goal in rehabilitation is to improve function so that the stroke survivor can become as independent as possible.

This must be accomplished in a way that preserves dignity and motivates the survivor to relearn basic skills that the stroke may have taken away – skills like eating, dressing and walking. Find out more

CDC Study: Almost 50% of disabled persons are physically inactive

September 7, 2014

Researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 47 percent of those with disabilities ages 18 to 64 get no aerobic physical activity. Another 22 percent exercise some but not enough.

The significant number of individuals with disabilities who are inactive is particularly alarming, researchers said, because they found this group is 50 percent more likely to report having a chronic condition like cancer, diabetes, stroke or heart disease.

“Physical activity is the closest thing we have to a wonder drug,” said Tom Frieden, director of the CDC. “Unfortunately, many adults with disabilities don’t get regular physical activity.”
