Treatment of strokes

Early treatment by expert neurologists and admission to specialised units significantly reduces mortality and long-term dependence in people who suffer from acute stroke. It is essential, then, that if you suspect that you or someone else is having a stroke, you call 112 and follow their instructions to get treatment at the appropriate hospital.

It is also important to state as accurately as possible the time of onset of symptoms. If the patient is unable to give this information or has woken up with signs of a possible stroke, the start time will be considered the last hour he was awake and asymptomatic.
