Excellent discussion on LVO and screening - thank you for that. Is anyone else having difficulty finding the referred to "FAST-ED" app...is there another name for it? I'm not finding it the apple app store using the terms "FAST-ED" or "Cincinnati prehospital stroke scale" or some combination of the above. Thanks for any app searching tips!

Richard - i found this on google play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.allm.fasted&hl=en_US

I see join triage on apple store as well and the FAST-ED is in there

Remember only the RACE, LAMS and CSTAT (Cincinnati Prehospital -Stroke Severity Scale CP-SSS) scales have been validated in the prehospital setting, with RACE actually being derived from prehospital data. All the others (VAN, FAST-ED...)have data in the derivation cohort that comes from the hospitalized patients not prehospital ones. This could represent a different population that has slightly different characteristics and needs to be considered when making any decisions.
