BEFAST - A Campaign to Prevent Strokes - Oren Zarif - Befast


Strokes are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. and a leading cause of long-term health problems. The acronym BEFAST combines the words Balance, Eyesight, and Speed to help individuals recognize the symptoms of stroke and receive emergency medical attention. This campaign aims to make strokes safer and more preventable by educating the public about the signs and symptoms of stroke. The acronym also highlights the importance of identifying people at risk of stroke, and highlights the need for early intervention.

While both BEFAST and FAST may improve the detection of stroke, neither can confirm nor exclude it. However, BEFAST has a higher diagnostic value than FAST, which may be beneficial in detecting AIS earlier. Because it captures 95% of strokes, it can potentially be used as a screening tool for stroke patients. Further studies may explore the differences between the tests and evaluate their diagnostic value in the anterior and posterior circulation.
