The Stroke Scales for EMS app is designed for emergency medical services (EMS) and health care provider audiences to help them identify stroke severity and emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO) in emergency situations. The app includes the LAMS, RACE, CPSSS, FAST-ED, and VAN stroke scales.
This update adds the Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale (CPSS) scale and fixes the C-STAT scale. Questions? Please email email@example.com.

Good but needs tweaking for VAN scale
Overall it’s a simple app for the new stroke scales for determining LVOs. The VAN scale wasn’t designed to determine if a patient has a small stroke. I wouldn’t say “a stroke unlikely” if the scale is negative. I would say “VAN is negative”. If the patient had drift but VAN negative this doesn’t mean “a stroke unlikely” just means the patient doesn’t have a LVO.
Simple to use in the field
Straightforward stroke scales make it easy to identify a severe stroke in the field.
