    Since it's from email, 99.9% of the time they are fake.

    I did some googling and found this:

    yeah it was too good to be true.

    thanks for clearing that up max, and it was a good reading.

    Sorry for the late reply, but yeah, that e-mail is sheer nonsense. Once you get a stroke, the damage has already been done.

    Quick medical intervention can prevent it from worsening and even reduce the damage, but certainly not by pricking the tips of the patient's fingers or ear lobes.

    Is using a whole XXL-sized syringe to jab at the heart (or onto the center of the chest of the victim) going to stop the cardiac arrest? Or is it just in the movies? :haha:

    Shooting adrenaline directly into the heart can restart it so I have heard ... never tried it though ;)

    Huh?? Not in a stroke case la... :haha: :haha:

    You need to get them to a hospital fast cause you need to find out whether it's haemorrhagic or ischaemic because the treatment is different and can worsen the situation (even kill the patient) if wrongly treated.
