The Doctors discuss an email that says if you think someone is having a stroke, ask them to stick out their tongue, and if it goes to one side or another it could be a sign that they are.
The Doctors say to avoid that advice and instead pay attention to these signs in the acronym F.A.S.T.:
F: Facial drooping
A: Arm weakness
S: Speech difficulty
T: Time to call 911
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says neurologist will ask you to stick your tongue out to test one of the cranial nerves, but that is too sophisticated for someone to try and there’s no time when someone may be having a stroke.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry explains what happens in a stroke is that the blood flow to the brain is cut off, and as a result, brain cells aren’t getting adequate oxygenation which causes brain cells to die. Chiropractor Dr. Bryan Abasolo explains waiting too long in this situation could be a matter of life and death.
