The ongoing RACECAT trial ( NCT02795962 ) aims to evaluate if direct transfer of acute ischemic stroke patients with RACE >4 to an endovascular center, bypassing local stroke centers, compared to transfer to the closest local stroke center is safe and offers a better clinical outcome. In the absence of evidence, current guidelines recommend that for patients considered eligible for IV thrombolysis in the field, if estimated transfer time to the nearest primary stroke center is considerably shorter than time to a comprehensive stroke center (approximately more than 30–45 min), the drip and ship model should be considered ( ESOC-Karolinska Stroke Update 2016 ).
Civil procedure is the body of law that sets out the rules and standards that courts follow when adjudicating civil lawsuits. The Florida Rules of Civil Procedure govern, in the Florida Court system, how a lawsuit or case may be commenced, what kind of service of process (if any) is required, the types of pleadings or statements of case, motions or applications, and orders allowed in civil cases, the timing and manner of depositions and discovery or disclosure, the conduct of trials, the process for judgment, various available remedies, and how the courts and clerks must function. The Florida Rules of Civil Procedure are enacted, and may be edited from time to time, by the Florida Supreme Court. The Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure perform the same function before Florida's Appellate Courts.
