"Early recognition and prompt treatment can reduce hugely the death rates and disability after an initial minor or 'mini-stroke'," said senior author Ashok Handa of John Radcliffe Hospital and Oxford University in the UK.
"Seeing a doctor and starting medical treatment the same day can reduce (the risk of) a second stroke by nearly 20 percent in the subsequent two weeks," Handa told Reuters Health by email. Recognizing that many people do not know the symptoms of stroke, the UK launched a public awareness campaign using the acronym FAST. FAST stands for the most common symptoms of stroke: Face drooping, Arm weakness, Speech slurring, and Time (emphasizing the need to act quickly.) Handa and colleagues surveyed 150 patients who came to their hospital in 2014 with a minor stroke or a so-called mini-stroke, formally known as a transient ischemic attack, or TIA. To increase awareness of eye problems as a symptom, Handa thinks the acronym should be updated to FASTER. "If you have problems with weakness or numbness of the Face, Arm or Speech difficulty it is Time to act and Eye disturbance (temporary visual loss) React NOW," Handa advised.
