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.
My back ground story is here:

Neurokeeper EEG Headset Spots Signs of Stroke in Brainwave Signatures

So who is going to sponsor the research that determines which stroke diagnosis tool is best? I guess we will just have to accept that we are invisible and stroke is not worth fighting.
The current way of waiting until the symptoms gets so bad the stroke becomes obvious is a complete failure. Ask your ER doctors which one they are testing.
There are others in the running.
1.  Pupil response via infrared light
2.  Drop of blood analysis
3.  MindReader headset designed to detect concussions in athletes
4.  Urinary Proteomics to Support Diagnosis of Stroke
5. Handheld brain bleed detector gets FDA approval
6. Handheld Traumatic Brain Injury Diagnostic Device
7. Mobile brain scanners can change the world
8. Blood Test May Help Spot Stroke
9.   presence of acrolein in a blood sample
10. Scanner helps find traumatic brain injuries
11.  Brain oximeter and frontal near-infrared spectroscopy
12.   Ischiban headband
People who already had one stroke are at an increased risk of suffering through another, which means a timely response to any signs of stroke is essential. Yet, symptoms can often be muted and difficult to notice, plus it takes precious time for them to fully develop. Moreover, strokes that occur during sleep may go completely undetected and leave a person permanently disabled, or worse. An Israeli company called Neurokeeper has developed an EEG (electroencephalography) headset that can purportedly identify the signature of a stroke and notify the person wearing it and any caretakers to take action.
