UnderRated: Learning F.A.S.T.

I have two friends who have had strokes and both have made a good recovery thanks to the prompt actions of those who were around them.

If you notice any of the symptoms listed, it's time to dial 999.

As mentioned in the recent FAST campaign on television, a stroke acts like a fire within the brain. There are drugs that can be given which will stop the spread of the damage. The FASTer you act, the more of the person you can save.

I think the FAST message bears reiterating here.
