Appendix I - Standardized examination for catatonia. The method described here is used to complete the item Bush-Francis Catatonia Rating Scale (CRS) and the item Catatonia Screening Instrument (CSI). Item definitions on the two scales are the same. The CRS measures the severity of 23 signs on a 0- 3 scale, while the CSI measures only the presence or absence of the firstFile Size: KB.
Bush-Francis Catatonia Rating Scale Assessment Resources. Catatonia can be challenging to assess for a variety of reasons, but perhaps the most pressing reason of all is that comprehensive educational materials on catatonia assessment simply have not existed. We at the University of Rochester Medical Center have partnered with Andrew Francis, PhD, MD, the senior author of the Bush-Francis Catatonia Rating Scale.
Principle Component Analysis (PCA) with varimax rotation was used to identify factors in those with catatonia. Findings revealed that a cut off of two signs from both Bush-Francis Catatonia Screening Instrument or BFCSI (sensitivity of %, specificity of % as well as a positive predictive value [PPV] of % and negative predictive value [NPV] % with ROC AUC value of ) and Cited by: 2. May be used both for initial diagnosis and to monitor treatment response.
The full scale is 23 items, with the first 14 questions comprising the screening instrument (Bush-Francis Catatonia Screening Instrument). If ≥2 of the first 14 questions are positive, this indicates a positive screening and should prompt completion of 9 additional items for a total of 23 items (Bush-Francis Catatonia Rating Scale). BUSH-FRANCIS CATATONIA RATING SCALE Use presence or absence of items for screening Use the scale for items to rate severity 1.
Excitement: Extreme hyperactivity, constant motor unrest which is apparently non-purposeful.
