FAST: Stroke Signs and Symptoms

Timing is critical during a stroke. There is a four and one-half hour window of time after the onset of stroke symptoms in which intravenous drugs can be administered to dissolve a blood clot and restore blood flow to the brain.

FAST is an easy way to remember the sudden signs of stroke. When you can spot the signs, call 911 right away.

Face Drooping

Arm Weakness

Speech Difficulty

Time to Call 911

In response to the public outcry, four days after the article’s online release, Governor Cuomo issued emergency rules to remedy many of the issues. Here’s to gutsy investigative journalism making a difference. Read More →
