Take Action In An Emergency
Not all the warning signs occur in every stroke.
Don't ignore signs of stroke, even if they go away! Check the time.
When did the first warning sign or symptom start? You'll be asked this important question later.
If you have one or more stroke symptoms that last more than a few minutes, don't delay! Seek immediate medical attention! If you're with someone who may be having stroke symptoms, immediately call one of the emergency rescue service numbers.
Expect the person to protest — denial is common.
Don't take "no" for an answer. Insist on taking prompt action.
