Emergency Department Stroke Detection Device
Protocol: SITE00000160
Full Title
Emergency Data Gathering and AlphaStroke Refinement (EDGAR)
Description
This study enrolls people who are in the Emergency Department. The purpose of this study is to test a device (made by the study sponsor, Forest Devices) that may be able to tell if someone is having a stroke. This device is portable, so it might someday be used on an ambulance to give caregivers early information on whether a patient who seems to be having a stroke is actually having a stroke or not. The device is painless and uses electrodes to gather information about brain activity.

Compensation is not available.
