    Modified SOAR Score for Stroke

    Predicts short-term mortality in acute ischemic stroke.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Use admission data for calculation. Do not use in patients with transient ischemic attack, subarachnoid hemorrhage, or subdural hemorrhage.

    When to Use
    Pearls/Pitfalls
    Why Use

    Patients admitted with acute ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke that have mRS and NIH Stroke Scale assessments.

    • No single universally accepted stroke mortality prediction score exists.
    • Score is based on data present on admission and is static.
    • Does not apply to patients with transient ischemic attack, subarachnoid hemorrhage, or subdural hemorrhage.
    • Can be applied for both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.
    • Component variables are familiar to most clinicians.
    • Can be calculated quickly.
    • Does not necessitate a weighting algorithm.
    • Can be administered by non-MD personnel.
    • Component variables are static over a given hospitalization.
