patients with suspected stroke
patients with suspected stroke due to paramedic's initial evaluation of face, arm, and speech function will be diagnosed with audio-video-streaming of suspected stroke symptoms and signs
Diagnostic Test: Audio-video-streaming of suspected stroke symptoms and signs
The diagnosis based on the patient evaluation by end-to-end encrypted real-time video will be compared to the gold standard, consisting of an in-person neurological examination by a stroke specialist in patients with suspected acute stroke.
- Diagnostic accuracy of the patient evaluation by remote Audio/video session [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]The proportion of successfully realized 'telestroke' interviews (=patient has a stroke yes/no) in comparison to final diagnosis by the caring stroke team.
- Diagnostic accuracy of an automated biometric software [ Time Frame: 12 months ]The proportion of correct stroke diagnosis by the automatic biometric assessment compared to the final diagnosis of the caring stroke team.
