COVID-19 variables added in SITS Registry

Tuesday, June 2, 2020



Upon request from SITS users, COVID-19 stroke specific variables are added in the SITS Registry on Jun 2, 2020. The new variables will help you to gather local knowledge, practice and outcomes in stroke treatment related to patients who are suspected or confirmed with COVID-19.

As Local Coordinator and Local User when you log in, a pop-up window will appear asking you whether you want to enable the COVID-19 stroke specific variables or not. If you select "Yes", the variables will be activated in your centre for the following protocols:


  • IVT (standard and minimal)
  • IVT+TBY Bridge
  • TBY
  • APP (standard and minimal)

Once these variables have been enabled in your centre, they are located in one separate subject page. You enter the page via the Patient Summary page, just like entering any other time point.
