How Tissue Plasminogen Activator (TPA) Helps Stroke Patients
Post on 24/07/16
TPA is a common intravenous clot-busting given to stroke patients if they get to hospital within a specific time window.
The current time window is within 4.5 hours after the onset of stroke. Upon arriving at the hospital, stroke patients are triaged and assessed if they are suitable to be administered TPA. If they are, they are then assessed by a doctor, who ascertains that the patient really has a stroke and not some other condition.
