Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Symptoms related to stroke diverge and may mimic many other conditions.

AIMS: To evaluate clinical findings among patients with a clinical suspicion of stroke in a prehospital setting and find independent predictors of a final diagnosis of stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) METHODS: An observational multi-centre study including nine emergency hospitals in western Sweden. All patients transported to hospital by ambulance and in whom a suspicion of stroke was raised by the EMS clinician before hospital admission during a four-month period were included.

RESULTS: Of 1,081 patients, a diagnosis of stroke was confirmed at hospital in 680 patients (63%), while 69 (6%) were diagnosed as TIA and 332 patients (31%) received other final diagnoses. In a multiple logistic regression analysis, factors independently associated with a final diagnosis of stroke or TIA were increasing age, odds ratio (OR) per year: 1.02, p=0.007, a history of myocardial infarction (OR: 1.77, p= 0.01), facial droop (OR: 2.81, p<0.0001), arm weakness (OR: 2.61, p<0.0001), speech disturbance (OR: 1.92, p<0.0001) and high systolic blood pressure (OR: 1.50, p=0.02), while low oxygen saturation was significantly associated with other diagnoses (OR: 0.41, p=0.007). More than half of all patients among patients with both stroke/TIA and other final diagnoses died during the five-year follow-up.

CONCLUSIONS: Seven factors including the three symptoms included in the Face Arm Speech Test (FAST) were significantly associated with a final diagnosis of stroke or TIA in a prehospital assessment of patients with a suspected stroke. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
