Table 2 Comparison of those with and without VEI

From: An exploration of the association between very early rehabilitation and outcome for the patients with acute ischaemic stroke in Japan: a nationwide retrospective cohort survey

  VEI (-) N = 1,414 (25.8%) VEI (+) N = 4,068 (74.2%) Univariate analysis
(P value)*
Age in years (SD) 73.6 (11.8) 72.9 (11.7) 0.045
Gender (female) 40.2% 39.5% 0.614

Functional severity score, mean (SD) ¶ 0.24 (1.78) 0.10 (1.69) 0.005
Functional capability score, mean (SD) ¶ -0.12 (1.1) -0.29 (0.99) < 0.001
Co-morbidity index (CI > 1) 48.4% 49.2% 0.629
Use of edaravone 56.5% 59.8% 0.032
Training intensity (unit/day), mean (SD) 1.04 (0.84) 1.71 (1.25) < 0.001
mRS at discharge (0-1) 40.1% 45.3% < 0.001
In-hospital mortality 1.7% 1.6% 0.799
Friday admission 23.9% 12.1% < 0.001
  1. CI: Charlson's index, mRS: modified Rankin scale, VEI: very early intervention
  2. *: Chi-square test for categorical variables and t-test for continuous variables.
  3. ¶: Functional severity score is the principal component of patient severity. Larger values indicate more severe patient conditions. Functional capability score is the principal component of patient functional capability. Larger values indicate better function.
