Think FAST and save a life!

Today, while browsing through the video of summaries of recent research developments at the University of Edinburgh, I came across this wonderful app. Brilliantly simple, it is designed to help people recognize the symptoms and signs of stroke, in themselves or others. The app was designed by the Division of Clinical Neurosciences at Edinburgh, and is the first of its kind. As I’ve discussed before on this blog, early recognition of stroke symptoms is key – time is brain. Hopefully this form of public health education will lead to an improvement in the early diagnosis and treatment of stroke.
