Seeking Acute Ischemic Stroke Case Studies For New AIS Toolkit
The American Stroke Association is developing an Acute Ischemic Stroke Toolkit to expand awareness of the 2015 AHA/ASA Focused Update to the 2013 Guidelines for the Early Management of Patients With AIS and to increase knowledge of screening tools/protocols for large vessel occlusions (LVO's). As part of the toolkit, we are seeking case studies that meet the following criteria:
- Case Study that identifies assessment and /or clinical functional outcomes – including evaluation of LVO, from the EMS Physician's or Neurologist's perspective.
- Hospital Approach and Community Case Model – opportunity to highlight differences between Acute Stroke Ready Hospitals/ PSCs and CSCs and the Physician/ Stroke Coordinator process. More detailed, speaks to systems of care and opportunities within hospitals. How a Facility Might approach triage and stroke care, use of assessment tools and role of EMS.
Please send any relevant cases you may have to .
