Since most of the cerebrovascular accident are ischemic ones, would it be usefull to have anticoagulant everywhere (we already have AEDs everywhere) so that everytime someone would have symptoms of a CVA we would be able to destroy the blood clot before any permanent damage to occur ?

On the other hand may it make the case of ruptured aneurysm getting worse ?

So what are the potential negative and positive effect of such a policy ?

I think it would be useful to rephrase this to ask for the potential positive and negative effects of anticoagulants. Right now the question is close to primarily opinion-based. – fileunderwater Jan 22 '14 at 9:42
