INTRODUCTION Potentially modifiable physiological variables may influence stroke prognosis but their independence from modifiable factors remains unclear. METHODS Admission physiological measures (blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and blood glucose) and other unmodifiable factors were recorded from patients presenting within 48 hours of stroke. These variables were compared with the outcomes of death and death or dependency at 30 days in multivariate statistical models. RESULTS In the… CONTINUE READING
