Prehospital Acute Stroke Severity Scale to Predict Large Artery Occlusion: Design and Comparison With Other Scales.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We designed and validated a simple prehospital stroke scale to identify emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO) in patients with acute ischemic stroke and compared the scale to other published scales for prediction of ELVO. METHODS A national historical test cohort of 3127 patients with information on intracranial vessel status… (More)
