According to him, they use the NIH Stroke Scale
to measure the risk.
Threshold for NIH stroke scale
in predicting vessel occlusion and functional outcome after stroke thrombolysis.
Traditionally, the most common way to identify persons with mild stroke are the NIH stroke scale
(mild stroke defined as NIHSS < 5) and the modified Rankin (mild stroke defined as mRS < 2).
Excellent Outcome is a commonly used measure of efficacy in stroke treatment, evaluated using three standard clinical rating scales of functional and neurological deficit and recovery following the stroke, including the NIH Stroke Scale
, modified Rankin Scale and Barthel Index.
In clinical routine, prognostication is based on clinical variables including the NIH Stroke Scale
(NIHSS) (3) (3).
RT: Retroflex tongue TCM: Traditional Chinese medicine NIHSS: NIH Stroke Scale
Initial NIH stroke scale
score was 5, otherwise, there were no focal neurological deficits and the remainder of his exam was unremarkable.
Improved reliability of the NIH Stroke Scale
using video training.
NIH stroke scale
was assessed in all patients to assess the neurological disability and its prognosis.
Leira et al., "Baseline NIH Stroke Scale
score strongly predicts outcome after stroke: a report of the Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment (TOAST)," Neurology, vol.
Based on the NIH Stroke Scale
(NIHSS) a tool from the National Institutes of Health used by healthcare providers to objectively quantify the impairment caused by a stroke, the patient had a score of 7 on the 0-44 scale (0 is best, 44 is most severe).
Conclusion: Baseline NIH Stroke Scale
score is strongly associated with functional outcome after 1 week of acute ischemic stroke.
