Diagnostic accuracy of dry electrode electroencephalography for LVO-a stroke: ELECTRA-STROKE initial results

Takeaway

  • In an emergency setting, dry electrode electroencephalography (EEG) is highly accurate in identifying large vessel occlusion stroke of the anterior circulation (LVO-a) in patients with suspected stroke.

Why this matters

    In order to maximize outcomes from endovascular therapy (EVT), identification of LVO-a stroke in the pre-hospital setting is important but can be challenging. ELECTRA-STROKE preliminary results show promise for earlier detection of LVO-a stroke, leading to earlier intervention and improved outcomes.
