hello there again, so on this part two we will talk to you about something we discussed at xaverian primary school.
Well the students really wanted to know more on what wewill be taking about the coming paragraphs but before that id like to thank the administration of Xaverian Primary School for allowing us conduct a successful talk to their students. Special thanks to Mr Polo, the deputy head teacher for making sure that the event went as planned and that we started in the right time.
Now on to today’s topic of discussion.
Strokes and TIAs
A stroke is where the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off, which can cause brain damage and possibly death.
A transient ischaemic attack (also called a TIA or “mini-stroke”) is similar, but the blood flow to the brain is only temporarily disrupted.
The symptoms of a stroke or TIA can be remembered with the word FAST, which stands for:
- Face – the face may have drooped on one side, the person may be unable to smile, or their mouth or eye may have dropped.
- Arms – the person may not be able to lift both arms and keep them there because of arm weakness or numbness in one arm.
- Speech – their speech may be slurred or garbled, or they may not be able to talk at all.
- Time – it’s time to dial 999 immediately if you see any of these signs or symptoms
Here are a few more pictures from the event
