Background And Aims: Pre-hospital scales to identify acute stroke patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO) have shown poor specificity for the desired sensitivity.We aim to develop a new clinical prehospital tool to improve the LVO-diagnostic accuracy. Methods: Prospective registry of consecutive stroke code activations in Catalonia. In addition to the RACE score, other variables were registered by EMS in the field: age, blood pressure, glycemia, vomiting, level of consciousness, history of a...
