Help & Advice

Remember PRICE

Protect from further injury

Rest stay calm, lying down is usually best, wait for any spasm to subside

Ice apply anything cold for 10 minutes

Compression use a support bandage or cushions if needed

Elevate an injured limb to reduce swelling

Injured?

Neurologists say that if they can treat a stroke victim within 3 hours, the effects of a stroke can be reversed - often totally.  Neurologists say that the trick is to get a stroke recognised/diagnosed and then get the patient medically cared for within 3 hours.

Act FAST

If you suspect that someone is having a stroke act FAST

With over 150,000 people in the UK having a stroke every year, it is imperative that people can recognise a stroke when it's happening and take prompt action.

What is FAST?

FAST requires an assessment of three specific symptoms of stroke:

Facial weakness - can the person smile? Has their mouth or eye drooped?


Arm weakness - can the person raise both arms?


Speech problems - can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?

Time to call 999.

If the person has failed any one of these tests, you must call 999. Stroke is a medical emergency and by calling 999 you can help someone reach hospital quickly and receive the early treatment they need.
