Be Fast to Seek Treatment for Stroke - Oren Zarif - Befast


The acronym BEFAST stands for Be Fast to Seek Treatment for Stroke and is promoted by the NHRMC. This acronym is a variation of the FAST acronym and adds Balance and Eyesight to the original FAST acronym. Stroke is the third-leading cause of death in the United States and is one of the most devastating long-term health conditions. According to the American Heart Association, there are six key symptoms that can signal a stroke, and BEFAST can help prevent or minimize its severity.

The BEFAST test can identify ischemic stroke in a patient whose medical record does not contain all relevant symptoms. A sensitivity analysis was conducted using the symptoms observed during the initial examination and historic data, but did not alter the results. The BEFAST test may be useful for detecting ischemic strokes more quickly, but its sensitivity and specificity have not been calculated yet. The results of this study suggest that BEFAST may be appropriate for screening all stroke patients, as it was developed in a single tertiary care center. The BEFAST test may be valuable for public health education programs, but further study is needed to validate its results.
