A Comparison of Pre-Hospital Stroke Assessments
This project was awarded 2nd place in the Research Project category
Finding the most accurate stroke assessment tool is critical as rapidly identifying a stroke can lead to better patient outcomes in the prehospital setting. A comparison between the Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale and the Los Angeles Prehospital Stroke Scale was made to determine the most effective one to use. Several quantitative and qualitative studies were reviewed to find evidence and statistics to back up the studies' results. The most accurate stroke assessment was the Los Angeles Prehospital Stroke Screen (LAPSS) after reviewing the different studies. It would be recommended to use over the Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale (CPSS) due to its accuracy.
