Ratings and Reviews
This is a great tool which will help physicians and patients. The app is so easy to use . I see a lot of patients with stroke in the ER. Having this app on my phone gives me easy access so I can use it at patients bedside.
Great app for screening for tPA and easy to use. NIH stroke scale that is built into this app is of a big help for trained neurologists as well.
Liked it a lot, but needs updating so it’s compatible with iOS 11. Now I can’t use it! Too bad!
