Stroke Continuum of Care

Stroke is a medical emergency. Public awareness is the first step in a coordinated approach to stroke care.



Stroke prevention includes a comprehensive approach to prevention of first or recurrent transient ischemic attack (TIA) or stroke.



Hyperacute refers to care offered in the first 24 hours after stroke and the first 48 hours after Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA).
