Acute Stroke Intervention Treatment Package
A stroke can happen at any time. The more time passes without seeking medical treatment, the more irreversible damages happen. It is CRUCIAL that you contact emergency services within 1 hour after symptoms begin.
Here are a few key symptoms of a stroke that you should look out for:
Ask them to smile. Does one side of their face droop down?
Ask them to raise both arms. Does one drop down?
Ask them to say a short phrase. Are they slurring or incomprehensible?
If the answers to all of these questions are yes, take note of the time the symptoms started and immediately call emergency services.
If you see someone showing symptoms of a stroke, immediately contact the Perpetual Help Medical Center – Las Piñas’ Stroke Services Unit at 874-ALTA/874-8515.
