A stroke attack can be a life threatening situation that can happen to us or a loved one without warning. There are a couple of things we can do when somebody close to us is having a stroke, the first one is to call 911. However, there is a very simple trick which could be the difference between life and death before the paramedics arrive. After reading this piece and learning this little trick, you’ll discover that it has never been more important to carry a needle around in your pocket.


When someone is having a stroke the brain capillaries start to tear and the brain stops receiving the needed amount of oxygen. This causes the brain cells to start dying off and it requires immediate medical help or could have deadly consequences.

What should you do in case you find yourself in such a situation, if you or someone close to you is having a stroke?

First, it’s extremely important to stay calm and don’t move the person who is having a stroke. Make sure you are using a medical needle, but if you don’t have that type with you, a simple needle will help as well. But, if you are using a regular needle, then you should sterilize it before using it. Once the needle is sterilized, prick the tips of all 10 fingers, as close to the nails as possible and as fast as you can. Wait for the blood to start flowing, and if you don’t notice any blood squeeze the fingers. When the blood starts flowing from all fingers the person will regain consciousness.

If the patient’s mouth is crooked, you need to massage hes/her ears until they turn red in order ti improve the patient’s blood flow. Then prick the soft part of the earlobe twice until two drops of blood comes out. After several minutes, his mouth will return to normal.

Take him immediately to the ER when he regains consciousness. The doctors will take care for the patient’s well being.
