Ventura ELVO Score

The Ventura ELVO Score is a scale Dr. Taqi helped develop. Emergency medical providers use it in the field to assess the likelihood of a blocked coronary artery that might cause an ischemic stroke. By examining four simple criteria, we can give the patient a quick score that helps determine the treatment steps. The Ventura ELVO Score has shown promising success at enhancing outcomes for stroke patients.
