There is no prehospital stratification tool specifically for predicting thrombolytic therapy after transportation. We developed a new prehospital scale named the Maria Prehospital Stroke Scale (MPSS) by modifying the Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale. Our objective is to evaluate its utility in a citywide bypass transportation protocol for intravenous(More)
BACKGROUND Stroke-bypass transportation to the stroke center by paramedics is important to maximize the efficiency of intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (iv-tPA) therapy. To improve access to stroke thrombolysis, a citywide protocol was launched on January 2007 in Kawasaki City (population 1.4 million) using the Maria Prehospital Stroke Scale (MPSS),(More)
Aim To establish prehospital triage in accordance with the new guidelines for endovascular therapy, we retrospectively analyzed the monitoring data of the city-wide transportation system using the Maria Prehospital Stroke Scale (MPSS), a novel prehospital stroke scale for emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to predict the likelihood of thrombolytic therapy(More)
