Recently I received a call from a AAA Response member reporting that he needed medical assistance. His friend was having what appeared to be a mild stroke with one side of his body not functioning. An ambulance was dispatched to the patient’s location, and he was taken to a nearby hospital.
On my next shift, I called the patient to check how he was doing and I received the great news that he was feeling much better and that he could walk. Unfortunately, his right arm was still not functioning properly, but they had taken blood tests and he awaits the result. We wish him all the best.

Signs and symptoms of stroke include:

  • Trouble speaking and understanding what others are saying. You may experience confusion, slur your words or have difficulty understanding speech.
  • Paralysis or numbness of the face, arm or leg. This often affects just one side of your body. Try to raise both your arms over your head at the same time. If one arm begins to fall, you may be having a stroke. Also, one side of your mouth may droop when you try to smile.
  • Problems seeing in one or both eyes. You may suddenly have blurred or blackened vision in one or both eyes, or you may see double.
  • Headache. A sudden, severe headache, which may be accompanied by vomiting, dizziness or altered consciousness, may indicate that you’re having a stroke.
  • Trouble walking. You may stumble or lose your balance. You may also have sudden dizziness or a loss of coordination.
