Julio Agredano (to do and not to do)

The voice of Julio Agredano, president of the Association Freno al Ictus, when he was talking about an initiative to know what has to be done and what not for detecting the symptoms of a stroke.

“We try to make the current weak link in the chain of survival of stroke (citizens) become the strongest link, the one that gives the alarm”, explained Julio Agredano, president of the Association Freno al Ictus, EFE, promoter of the initiative, which was presented publicly last Tuesday on the occasion of world day of this disease.

The brain protector spaces are places, public and private, in which a trained employee can detect the symptoms, react in time to stabilize the affected and activate the alarm protocols, just as it happens in heart-protected spaces, where it acts in heart attack

The project has the collaboration of the Spanish Society of Neurology (SEN), which has developed the training content, and with the endorsement of the Spanish Association of Labor Prevention Services (Aespla).

There is a health action protocol called “Ictus Code” that seeks to accelerate the transfer of the affected person by emergency services to a hospital that has a stroke unit. But “it’s no use” if patients don’t arrive on time. And why are they late? “Because the symptoms are not well identified and the emergency telephone number 112 is not called correctly.”

1.- Listen to the MP3 (October 29, 2019):

2.- Fill the gaps with the missing words while you’re listening to the MP3:

“Lo que _______ ________ es ______ a la gente, ¿vale? Sobre todo gente que está de cara al público, gente que _____ continuamente _____ ______ gente por su oficina, por su puerta, por su lugar de trabajo ____ _____ ______ _______ los síntomas principales, _____ ______, qué ____ ____ _____ y qué no _____ ____ _____ y ____ lo que _____ _____ ____. Es decir, cómo se hace un bar on plot o los protocolos hospitalarios que sí, sí que nos injerte.”

3.- Read translation of the transcription:

“What we are trying to do is training people, okay? Above all people who are facing the public, people who are continually watching people pass by their office, through their door, through their workplace so that they know how to identify the main symptoms, know how to stabilize, what needs to be done and what not to do. Do and know what you have to do. That is to say, how to make a bar on plot or the hospital protocols that yes, it does graft us.”
