Stroke Awareness: http://bcove.me/5cs11lo1
The beginning of the video shows scenes from a rather stereotypical wedding. As the commercial passes through numerous shots of people in various common situations, it focuses on their specific body language rather than what they are saying, and more often than not, they are simply gesturing in a manner that allows us to recognize their individual situation quite clearly. At about 40 seconds in, the narrator tells the viewer, as a guest at the wedding drops a dessert plate, that the warning signs of a stroke are something we should be cognizant of, just as we can recognize the body language of others in the video. The narrator then describes, with the support of visual examples, the “FAST” system, which helps to recognize a stroke and respond to it in a timely manner. The steps are as follows: recognize (F)ace drooping, (A)rm weakness, and (S)peech difficulty, and (T)ime to call 911.
