Two million brain cells die every minute during a stroke, so it goes without saying that time is of the essence. When a person suffers from a stroke, every second counts. According to the National Stroke Association, 795,000 strokes occur every year, and they can happen to anyone at any time, regardless of race, gender or age. 

If you don't act fast, a stroke can cause permanent brain damage or death. Ironically, FAST is just the acronym used to detect stroke. Early detection is imperative to reduce damage. The American Heart Association recommends following the FAST program: 

  • (F)ace drooping;
  • (A)rm weakness;
  • (S)peech difficulty;
  • (T)ime to call 9-1-1. 

FAST identifies three warning signs of stroke, but there are several more that raise the red flag.
