Depending on the type of stroke involved, early stages of a stroke may offer a patient a hopeful window of opportunity to obtain effective treatment. Early intervention in the case of a thrombotic stroke may mean there will be excellent chances of recovery. A delay in diagnosis or treatment can result in a much worse outcome, possibly leaving the stroke victim with lasting disabilities that could have been prevented through prompt treatment.
You may have arrived at this Web page after going to the emergency room (ER) in the early stages of a thrombotic stroke and missing out on diagnosis and treatment that could have improved your outlook. Maybe ER triage personnel did not properly prioritize your case when you arrived with symptoms of thrombotic stroke. Perhaps doctors did not administer anti-clotting medications in time to prevent permanent injury.
