Heart and vascular events are the leading causes of death among men and women. While heart attacks remain #1, death by stroke is ranked in the top five, killing a staggering one in 20 Americans. While the risks for heart attack and stroke are the same, a stroke affects the brain.

Sometimes called a “brain attack,” a stroke occurs when a clot blocks the blood supply to the brain or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts. During stroke, time is of the essence! It can save your life—and your quality of life—by knowing these stroke symptoms and acting FAST to prevent—or reduce—irreversible brain damage.

FaceFacial weakness can indicate a stroke. Ask the person to smile. If someone is having a stroke, one side of the face may appear droopy; or, someone will only be able to make a half smile.
ArmsA stroke can cause muscle weakness, numbness, or may paralyze one side of the body. Ask them to raise their arms. Sometimes, you’ll notice they stumble or fall.
SpeechSpeech or understanding others while speaking can also be affected during stroke. Ask someone a simple question. If he or she can’t hear you or you can’t understand the reply, it may be a stroke.
TimeDuring a stroke, time lost is brain lost. Note the time of the first symptoms and call 911. Don’t try to drive to the hospital. Certain drugs or interventions can be administered, on scene, when precious moments count.

The warning signs of a stroke are the same as the warning signs of a heart attack. These include:

  • Bigger waistline, bigger risk: Carrying even 20 extra pounds makes your heart have to work harder to support your body’s needs. Know your weight and your body mass index, BMI.
  • Using tobacco: According to the CDC, tobacco use triples the risk of death from heart disease for men and women over 50. There are several programs, often free, that help you quit tobacco, for good.
  • Do you know your numbers?  It can save your life to know whether your heart and vascular system are operating within proper ranges. This make a world of difference to your heart and vascular health.  Here are the numbers you should know:
Important NumbersNormal levelsDanger range
Blood pressure120/80140/90
