  1. Q1 First quartile, Q3 Third quartile, PaSSV Passive Surveillance Stroke seVerity indicator
  2. aA continuous score ranging from 0 – 99 where scores < 5 indicate low risk of frailty, scores from 5 – 15 indicate intermediate risk of frailty, and scores > 15 indicate high risk of frailty [24]
  3. bA continuous score where < 4 indicates severe stroke, 4 – 8 indicates moderate stroke severity, and > 8 indicates mild stroke severity [25]
