How Body Language Can Indicate a Stroke
Humans use body language to communicate all types of feelings and emotions, but body language can also be a critical indicator of serious health conditions—specifically stroke . When a person is having a stroke, there are three characteristic signs that may be seen in the face and body.
This video from the American Stroke Association reviews the body language associated with stroke so that you can be prepared to seek emergency care at the first signs. Droopiness on one side of the face, weakness in the arms, and slurred speech are all signs of stroke that should prompt a quick call to 911.
