Spread Stroke Signs With FAST Wristbands

Do you know the signs of stroke? They’re easy to remember with the acronym FAST.

  • F = Face: Is one side of the face drooping down?
  • A = Arm: Can the person raise both arms, or is one arm weak?
  • S = Speech: Is speech slurred or confusing?
  • T = Time: Time is critical!! Call 9-1-1 immediately!

Custom made FAST wristbands with a custom message such as “Know the Signs of Stroke – FAST” or “F = Face | A = Arm | S = Speech | T = Time” can help raise awareness of the signs of a stroke. Other signs of a stroke include:

  • sudden trouble seeing
  • sudden dizziness
  • generalized weakness


Why are FAST Wristbands Important?

Nearly 800,000 people a year have a stroke, which occurs when a blood clot interrupts blood flow to an area of the brain. Stroke is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and also the leading cause of serious disability. Immediate treatment of strokes may minimize the long-term effects of a stroke and prevent death. FAST bracelets for signs of stroke can help people become aware of the signs of stroke and help others get immediate medical treatment.

According to the American Stroke Association, there are two types of strokes: hemorrhagic or ischemic. An ischemic stroke occurs as a result of an obstruction within a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain. It accounts for 87 percent of all stroke cases. A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a weakened blood vessel ruptures and spills blood into brain tissue. The most common cause for the rupture is uncontrolled hypertension (high blood pressure).
