Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Cost of surviving catastrophic illness - US $100,500

I know that stroke associations will use this to promote prevention and F.A.S.T. But I look at it differently, it means we need to get past the pathetic 10% full recovery and that will only be possible when we find 177 hyperacute possibilities that stop the neuronal cascade of death.

U.S. District Court rules that stem cells are drugs

Even if your own cells are cultured as stem cells they can be regulated by the FDA.  Consult your lawyer, you would hate to have your own neurogenesis  be declared illegal. But your dog can get stem cells.

Good luck.


Medical research - stroke rehab/research version



I couldn't help but spread this around. My version would have added a line, 'Have you read any research articles since graduating?'     'I didn't think so'
