ICONE 1.1When a patient is admitted at the acute phase of ischemic stroke, management by neurologists and emergency physicians has to be as fast as possible in order to determine whether the patient can be treated with intravenous thrombolysis (rt-PA). NIHSS app for iOS and Apple Watch helps physicians in this management.

When thrombolysis is considered, time to needle has to benn as short as possible to maximize treatment efficacy. In the app, simply configure symptom onset and admission hour to get an automatic assessment of time to needle.

Apple Watch app

If you have an Apple Watch, you will find some of the app’s features on your wrist! The extension includes rt-PA dose calculator and Time manager.

We have also introduced two new scores:

  • ABCD2 score for management of patients admitted with transient ischemic attacks
