How to determine if an acute ischemic stroke has occurred

Patients and their families should learn how to recognize a stroke in a timely manner. The simple “1-2-0 stroke” mnemonic helps to identify
1 look – 1 face with asymmetry and a skewed mouth.
2 check – 2 arms, raised in parallel, with unilateral weakness.
0 – (listening) to speech, slurred speech, difficulty in expression.
If you have any of the above sudden symptoms, immediately call the emergency number 120 or go to a medical institution with life-saving capabilities as soon as possible to avoid missing the time window for thrombolysis.
