Referral and care for acute ischemic stroke in a Japanese tertiary emergency hospital
Although the in‐hospital stroke management is functioning relatively well, further efforts are necessary in reducing the diagnostic delay, and direct ambulance transportation and more severe neurological deficits were independent predictors both for early arrival and short in‐ hospital delay to CT.
Acute Stroke Mimics: Etiological Spectrum and Efficacy of FAST, BE FAST, and the ROSIER Scores
A proper history and clinical examination should be given priority over fixed protocols whenever acute stroke mimic are suspected especially before administering acute costly interventions.
Regarding thrombectomy centre volumes and maximising access to thrombectomy services for stroke in England: A modelling study and mechanical thrombectomy for acute ischaemic stroke: An implementation guide for the UK
When modelling provision of MT services for England, a desirable minimum centre volume for thrombectomy needed to be set and additional factors were considered as well as clinical outcomes, including ambulance travel times and minimum volume to sustain 24/7 neurointerventionist rotas.
Stroke Screening Feature Selection for Arm Weakness Using a Mobile Application
This work proposes a novel accessible method to screen symptoms of arm weakness that may indicate the onset of a stroke using a single mobile device and can combine this method with other methods of evaluating facial drooping and slurred speech to create a complete Face, Arm, Speech, Time (FAST) assessment application.
Towards evidence-based policies to strengthen acute stroke care in low-middle-income countries
mFAST: Automatic Stoke Evaluation System for Time-Critical Treatment with Multimodal Feature Collection and Machine Learning Classification
The research proposes to implement the mobile services for FAST (Face, Arm, Speech, Time) stroke activation to measure face palsy, arm weakness, speech disturbance and to analyze the automatically collected data.
Pre- and In-Hospital Management of Stroke
With the streamlining of all aspects of prehospital and in-hospital thrombolysis processes and the increase of hospital experience, this work can achieve a shorter onset-to-treatment time (OTT), and more patients may benefit from timely thROMbolytic therapy.
Prehospital stroke scales as screening tools for early identification of stroke and transient ischemic attack.
The aim was to systematically identify and review the evidence pertaining to the test accuracy of validated stroke recognition scales, as used in a prehospital or emergency room (ER) setting to screen people suspected of having stroke.
