OBJECTIVE: The study was aimed to evaluate the factors that contribute to a pre-hospital delay in acute stroke patients at the hospital settings. BACKGROUND: Stroke is the leading cause of disability, with rising rates in emerging nations. The majority of strokes are caused by ischemia due to arterial blockage. However, for endovascular treatment and thrombolysis, as well as conservative medicinal care, the period between symptom onset and therapy beginning remains a critical element in functional success. This period is known as prehospital delay.
