Abstract

To determine the predictors of 30-days intra-hospital case fatality rate in patients with first-ever acute stroke in tertiary case Al Farwaniah hospital in Kuwait and Daping hospital in China. A cross-sectional observational study This is a cross-sectional study which  included 134 patients with acute first-ever stroke 70 cases admitted to Al-Farwaniah hospital intensive care unit in Kuwait and 64 cases in Daping hospital intensive care in China. Uniform information was obtained using standard format documenting risk factors, neurological clinical presentation at the time of admission, admission Glasgow Coma Score (GCS) and Barthel index, blood pressure, random blood glucose level and presence of complications. All patient were closely followed up to monitor progress of these cases. The end point was mortality or survival at 30 days from stroke onset. The 30-days case fatality rate was 22.4% age, sex, hypertension had no impact on mortality. Haemorrhagic (p=0.04), low GCS (p=0.001), low Barthel index < 5/20 (p=0.001), diabetes mellitus (p=0.001) and middle cerebral artery infarct i.e MCA (p=0.001) on admission were  important predictors of mortality. Hypertension and diabetes mellitus are the most common risk factors of stroke among patients admitted to Farwaniah hospital – Kuwait and Daping hospital in China. Significant predictors of one-month mortality include admission GCS, its deterioration and haemorrhagic stroke.

Keywords: Intensive care unit, ischemic stroke, haemorrhagic stroke, Glasgow Coma Score, outcome, survival
