Under the premise that the patients' family members provided the disease history (no previous history of blood disorder, oral anticoagulant medication
, or serious hepatonephric disease), the patients in group A were directly administered the rt-PA thrombolytic therapy without the results of blood clotting and hepatonephric function test, which saved at least 30 minutes and greatly shorten the interval between the onset to the thrombolytic therapy; therefore, more patients could be applied the thrombolytic therapy.
