for Health Care Providers

Hyperacute refers to care offered in the first 24 hours after stroke and the first 48 hours after Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA).
Acute stroke care refers to the key interventions involved in the assessment, treatment or management, and early recovery in the first days after stroke onset.
