What are early signs of stroke?
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S * Ask the individual to SMILE. T * Ask the person to TALK to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny out today) R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 immediately !! and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
What if I'm not sure my child is current on his/her immunizations?
Please contact us. We always have appointments available to make sure your child is best protected against vaccine preventable illnesses.
Immunizations, however, are only a small part of pediatric preventive care. Health Maintenance Examinations are uniquely tailored to your child's age and medical circumstances. During a "well-child appointment," our providers will be assessing your child's interval growth and motor/language/psychosocial development. In addition, we are constantly on the lookout for the signs or symptoms of emerging health problems. Blood pressure and scoliosis screenings, lead testing and eye charts, behavioral questionnaires and urinalyses -- these are but a few of the numerous instruments potentially used in the ongoing evaluation of your child's health.
Anderson Valley Health Center clinic has implemented the Preventive Pediatric Health Care Periodicity Schedule published by the AAP. By clicking this link, you can determine when your child's next routine appointment should be scheduled.
