WHO IS AT RISK FOR STROKE?

Anyone can have a stroke regardless of age, race or gender – and the sooner the treatment, the better chance of survival. 

Uncontrollable Risk Factors

  • Age 55 or older
  • Male 
  • African American, Hispanic or Asian/Pacific Islander
  • Family history of stroke or heart attack

Controllable Risk Factors

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Physical inactivity
  • Use of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs

There are many factors you can control by living a healthy lifestyle. If you or someone you know have these risk factors, talk with your doctor about developing a plan to reduce your risks.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF STROKE?

When blood flow to the brain is blocked, you’re against the clock. When you suspect someone is having a stroke, think FAST:

FACE

Is one side of the face drooping or numb? Ask the person to smile.

ARM

Is one arm weak or numb? Ask the person to raise both arms.

SPEECH

Is speech slurred? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence, like “the sky is blue.”

TIME

If the person shows any of these symptons, even if the symptoms go away, call 9-1-1 immediately.

These warning signs may last only a few moments, then go away. Even in this case, do not ignore these symptoms. These could be “mini-strokes” which are caused by a serious underlying condition that requires urgent medical help.
