Abstract

Research into emergency stroke care is complicated by the frequent presentation of patients with mimic conditions, especially during evaluation of ambulance interventions. The Paramedic Acute Stroke Treatment Assessment (PASTA) multicentre cluster RCT enrolled only hospital specialist confirmed stroke patients, however, data were also captured about mimic patients conveyed by study paramedics. To assist with planning future ambulance trials, we report these data.
