Hospital joins End Stroke campaign

ST. PETERSBURG – Northside Hospital is participating in the American Stroke Association's Together to End Stroke campaign in Tampa Bay, locally sponsored by Verizon.

As part of this awareness campaign, the hospital is promoting the acronym F.A.S.T. to help people recognize the warning signs of a stroke. F.A.S.T. stands for:

• F – Face Drooping: Does one side of the face droop or is it numb?

• A – Arm Weakness: Is one arm weak or numb?

• S – Speech Difficulty: Is speech slurred, are they unable to speak, or are they hard to understand?

• T – Time to call 911: If the person shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call 911 and get them to the hospital immediately.

American Stroke Association's Together to End Stroke initiative aims to educate all Americans that stroke is largely preventable, treatable and beatable. It encourages people to know their risk of stroke and to know the warning signs. Through Together to End Stroke, efforts are focused on increasing awareness and driving action among Americans across the entire stroke continuum of care: prevention, acute treatment, and post-stroke rehabilitation.
