How can we identify if a person is suffering a stroke?

A stroke is considered a medical emergency that requires immediate diagnosis and treatment. If you suspect a stroke, you must act as quickly as possible, as brain cells that die are not recovered and their function will stay damaged.

Therefore, if you think a person might be suffering a stroke, you should carry out three quick tests and, if at least one gives reason for concern, you should contact 112 urgently.
