Can emergency treatment be extended to those waking up with a stroke?

About 20% of strokes occur during sleep and the exact time the stroke started will not be known.

But, the best treatment available has to be given within 4.5 hours of the stroke onset.

The WAKE-UP trial uses advance brain imaging to decide if the stroke started within the 4.5 hour window.
