FACE - Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?

ARMS - Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?

SPEECH - Ask the person to repeat a sentence. Are the words slurred? Can he/she repeat the sentence?

If the person shows any of these symptoms, TIME is critical.

Call 911. Get to a hospital now. Brain cells are dying.
