  1. Hello. Very NICE video and very IMPORTANT! Just a thought….the portion on how to identify a stroke is on the screen for too short of time…I read pretty quickly, but that particular screen has VERY SMALL print, so it took me a bit longer to read each item. I would suggest bumping up the font size for each and keeping that screen on slightly longer…. Thank you for your consideration. Therese Lutzke

  2. I totally agree with Therese. The most important part went way too fast to view it.

  3. It would be great to have a printable pocket card and/or refer to pdf or app for quick reference.

  4. Hi, I agree with both–
    totally agree with Therese & Janet– The most important part went way too fast to view it.
    I agree!: It would be great to have a printable pocket card and/or refer to pdf or app for quick reference

  5. Excellent and succinct video. I agree that a pocket card would be handy for remembering the words for the acronym. Thank you!

  6. To view the symptoms part, or BEFAST at your own pace, click on the two bars on the lower left hand corner of the video, and it will pause until you click again there to start. You can then take a screenshot, use your camera to take a picture, or print the screen, etc to have it handy later.

  7. Even better, put the list in text under the video fame for review and more leisurely perusal.
