Neurologic stroke scales have been developed for quantification of neurologic deficits, functional outcomes, and global outcomes in stroke patients. Neurologic deficit scales are scoring systems for severities of specific neurologic symptoms or signs. These scales are used to assess initial severity and deterioration in acute stroke phase, and to follow-up. National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale is widely used neurologic deficit scale. Functional outcome scales are evaluation tools used to measure stroke related disability. Modified Rankin scale, and Barthel index are most frequently used outcome scales. Because there is no scale that appears to satisfy all of the requirements of an ideal neurologic scale, it is helpful to use a neurologic deficit scale along with a functional outcome scale.
Key Words: Stroke; Neurologic stroke scale; Neurologic deficit
