  B value Adj. odds ratio Wald P value

  1. Positive B values (Adj, OR > 1) denote variables more associated with rtPA inclusion while negative B values (Adj. OR < 1) denote variables more associated with rtPA exclusion. Multicollinearity and interactions among independent variables were checked. Hosmer–Lemeshow test (P = 0.084), Cox & Snell (R2 = 0.260), classification table (overall correctly classified percentage = 74.3%) were applied to check the model fitness
