A Pilot Study Evaluating the Use of ABCD2 Score in Pre-Hospital Assessment of Patients With Suspected Transient Ischaemic Attack: Experience And Lessons Learned
from Experimental & Translational Stroke Medicine
It is possible to identify, recruit and follow up patients with suspected TIA in the EMS setting. Training large numbers of EMS staff is required as exposure to TIA patients is infrequent. Significant insight was gained into the complexity of NHS research governance mechanisms in the U.K. This knowledge will facilitate the planning of a future adequately powered study to validate the ABCD2 tool in a pre-hospital setting.
