Effective stroke treatment is very time dependent. Every minute that passes before a patient is seen, brain cells are dying. Albert Yoo, MD, a diagnostic and interventional neuroradiologist, said the recognition of a stroke is the most important step.

FAST is an easy way to remember the sudden signs of stroke:

  • Face drooping
  • Arm weakness
  • Speech difficulty
  • Time to call 911

If a stroke is not treated right away, symptoms such as arm weakness, leg weakness, facial weakness and speech difficulty can become permanent. So don’t delay – act FAST.
