Acute stroke is a time-dependent medical emergency. In acute ischemic stroke, the first objective is to restore brain flow using sistemic thrombolytic treatment and, in patients with large vessel occlusion, by endovascular treatment. In hemorrhagic stroke there are also specific treatments that can improve the clinical outcome.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PREHOSPITAL CARE OF ACUTE STROKE AND PATIENT SELECTION FOR ENDOVASCULAR TREATMENT USING THE RACE SCALE
I enjoyed and learned a lot from this course. I hope that in my country such a well-planned code can also be implemented for the benefit of patients.
Great gateway to medical students specialy to physiotherapy students for understanding stroke
It was really great experience to learn more about stroke, stroke treatments, stroke code, and its evaluation scale. It will definitely help me in my work.
Very informative course, especially if you are clinically inclined about the therapy area.
