When Edward came to Orange Park Medical Center, he couldn’t breathe. It was soon discovered that he was suffering from severe artery blockages, which would require heart surgery. Though Edward was in the midst of a worrisome situation, his team of heart experts gave him the comfort and information he needed.

Stroke may be an alarming situation, but it doesn’t have to be a fatal one. The stroke specialists at Orange Park Medical Center hope to raise greater awareness of stroke symptoms. Though not all stroke sufferers experience the same warning signs, by knowing the most common symptoms, you may be able to save a loved one who’s in trouble. Consider the following stroke-associated conditions:
Strokes can often impact the area of the brain that controls a person’s speaking abilities. If you suddenly notice that a friend or family member is slurring his or her speech, have them repeat an easy sentence or phrase. Should they slur their response, seek immediate medical help.
Motor Skill Difficulty
A frequent telltale sign of stroke is abrupt paralysis or limited motor capabilities on one side of the body. You might observe that you or a loved one can no longer walk with ease. If a friend or family member experiences this problem, ask him to lift his arms. The inability to do so, or the evident drifting of one arm downward, necessitates emergency care.
In some cases, stroke symptoms are apparent just by looking at a person. Just as stroke can impact one side of the body, it can also affect one side of the face. If a loved one’s face seems to be sagging, request that they smile for you. If one half of that smile droops downward, call 911 or leave immediately for your nearest hospital.
Stroke can also strike areas of the brain that regulate vision. If you suddenly cannot see clearly, or if a loved one complains of impaired eyesight, do not wait for symptoms to alleviate. The sooner you receive emergency care for stroke, the better your chances for a swift and full recovery.
