A survey of the time taken by stroke patients from onset to arrival at hospital at Thanh Hoa General Hospital (the provincial flagship hospital) in Thanh Hoa Province, Viet Nam, has been presented. The study revealed that thrombolytic therapy at an early stage (within a few hours) after stroke onset is expected to have a good prognosis in stroke patients, but in Thanh Hoa Province in general it took a long time to arrive at the hospital. The study showed that improving the emergency transport system and educating the public about stroke treatment could reduce the time to presentation and significantly improve stroke prognosis.
