The golden time to cure and increase the chance of survival for a patient after stroke is limited to 4 to 6 hours. However, many people who have had a stroke due to disease detection, late hospital transfer, have passed the golden time, and the chances of life become slim. If the patients pass the critical situation, they will also have to face severe neurological and motor sequelae ... Ho Chi Minh City is one of the hot spots with the rapid increase of this disease.
