The primary outcome measure was the proportion of patients achieving significant early neurological recovery defined as an improvement of 4 or more points on the NIHSS
score at discharge.

Suggestions include selecting a group of nurses from the ED and (ICU) to obtain certification to perform the NIHSS

With this novel approach to data analysis, as used in the more recent Abciximab in Emergent Stroke Treatment and Glycine Antagonist in Neuroprotection trials, good outcomes are defined as a 3-month modified Rankin Score of 0 in those with a pretreatment National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS
) score of 0-7, a modified Rankin Score of 0-1 in those with a pretreatment NIHSS
score of 8-14, or a modified Rankin Score of 0-2 in those with a pretreatment NIHSS
score of greater than 14.
