Code Stroke is a system for the rapid identification, pre-notification and transport of acute ischemic stroke patients. The objective of this study was to define quality indicators and to compare treatment outcomes in hospitals where Code Stroke has been implemented and hospitals without the use of Code Stroke (control patients).
In a first step qualitative technique has been conducted to define treatment quality indicators of acute ischemic stroke patients. In a second step a prospective study is conducted to collect data of 240 inpatients from two groups of hospitals. Two hospitals applying Code Stroke (N= 120) and four hospitals non-applying Code Stroke procedure (N=120). A consecutive sampling method will be conducted. Inclusion criteria: acute ischemic stroke patients treated in the hospitals during the field study. The referral to the hospital could be from primary care, Emergency Unit of other hospital. Patients will enroll after inform consent.
A Singer-blind- research method will applied. Quality indicators defined in the first phase will be applied and comparisons will be realized using ANOVA.

Acute mortality rate of stroke in Hungary is significantly higher than in Western Europe, which is likely to be partially attributable to suboptimal treatment.
Identifying acute ischemic stroke (AIS) among potential stroke cases is crucial for stroke research based on claims data. However, the accuracy of using the diagnostic codes of the International Class...
Stroke is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Reperfusion therapy with intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV-tPA) was first implemented in 1996. More recently, endovascular...
In-hospital strokes account for up to nearly 1 in 5 strokes. Clinical outcomes, such as length of stay, disability, and mortality are worse for in-hospital strokes than for those that occur in the com...
In population-based studies asymptomatic retinal emboli occur in .32%-2.9% of people. Retinal artery occlusion (RAO) may occur concurrently with cerebral stroke but the frequency is unknown. No study ...
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)
A condition caused by the failure of body to dissipate heat in an excessively hot environment or during PHYSICAL EXERTION in a hot environment. Contrast to HEAT EXHAUSTION, the body temperature in heat stroke patient is dangerously high with red, hot skin accompanied by DELUSIONS; CONVULSIONS; or COMA. It can be a life-threatening emergency and is most common in infants and the elderly.
Sudden death from overwork, most often as a result of acute CARDIOVASCULAR STROKE.
