V-FAST rapid screen tool (PAVE study; Paramedic Vision Evaluation)
The V-FAST tool has been developed by the VISION Research Unit, University of Liverpool in collaboration with the North West Ambulance Service.
The purpose of the V-FAST tool is to screen for visual impairment during paramedic call-outs to suspected stroke. It is not a diagnostic tool but serves to screen for visual impairment and thus highlighting potential need for specialist visual assessment.
