The aim of this study is to reveal the right approach and prognosis of cerebrovascular accident (CVA) by reviewing the various researches on CVAs. The reviews were done by BNBI PubMed, KMBase, RISS, and KoreaMed. Based on the articles, prevalence rate of CVA, prehospital CVA patients assessment and emergency care, and in-hospital care were analyzed. The most important scales are Cincinnati prehospital stroke scale(CPSS) and Los Angeles prehospital stroke screen(LAPSS). These two scales are the basic assessment tools for CVAs and it is necessary to perform the emergency care by way of these scales.
