The SSNAP record should be started by the team performing the initial assessments. If your team sees the patient first and performs the initial assessment (even if they were not admitted to the hospital) you should start the record and then transfer to the thrombectomy centre.
For patients who are referred for thrombectomy, Q2.11.0 ('Was patient referred for intra-arterial intervention for acute stroke?') should be answered by the first admitting team. The remaining thrombectomy questions should be answered by the thrombectomy-performing centre.
Please only record data that your team collected. For Q2.11 ('Did the patient receive an intra-arterial intervention for acute stroke?') if your team did not perform the intra-arterial intervention, please answer 'No' or leave blank: Only the team performing the thrombectomy should enter ‘Yes’ for Q2.11.
