B_PROUD - Berlin Pre-hospital Or Usual Delivery of stroke care project

The objective of the B_PROUD trial B_PROUD (Berlin Pre-hospital Or Usual Delivery of stroke care project) is to show improved functional outcomes after deployment of the Stroke Emergency Mobile (STEMO) compared to regular care.

Project Description

B_PROUD (Berlin Pre-hospital Or Usual Delivery of stroke care project) is a trial with an accompanying registry investigating the effects of pre-hospital stroke care in STEMO, the Stroke Emergency Mobile, on functional outcome. STEMO care reduces time from alarm to thrombolysis, increases the rate of thrombolysis, especially during the so-called golden hour of stroke, and improves triage of patients with suspected stroke. Final proof of improved outcome is, however, still outstanding, yet required by decision makers throughout the world prior to investing in pre-hospital thrombolysis concepts. Together with the Research Group Audebert, we embrace this challenging and unique opportunity to deliver solid evidence for future guidance.
