Hyperacute stroke care is time sensitive and involves assessment, stabilization and treatment in the first hours after stroke or TIA onset. It represents all pre-hospital and initial emergency care for TIA and stroke. This includes thrombolysis or endovascular interventions for acute ischemic stroke, emergency neurosurgical procedures, and same-day TIA diagnostic and risk stratification evaluation.

A coordinated and integrated approach to hyperacute stroke care is emphasized within the NWORSN initiatives collaborating with Emergency Medical System, emergency departments, telestroke sites, and other stakeholders involved in this phase of care.
