“In the Valencian region we have the Ictus Code, it is about an emergency protocol which is automatically activated since the moment the alarm signal is raised till the person gets the hospital”
They also informed about the desired moment in the detention of the episode which must be lower than the first four hours since the first symptoms are detected. In that sense, they provide with the necessary info to detect and save remarking that “Time is brain”.
