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:

Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics--2014 Update.

You can read all 268 pages here but its not going to tell you how to fix all the failures in the stroke medical world. That's going to take SuperStroke Survivor abilities. Because the existing stroke associations have no incentive to help survivors.
  • On average, every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke.
  • On average, every 4 minutes, someone dies of a stroke (NCHS, NHLBI). Stroke accounted for ≈1 of every 19 deaths in the United States in 2010.
  • From 2000 to 2010, the annual stroke death rate decreased 35.8% and the actual number of stroke deaths declined 22.8%.
  • An estimated 6.8 million Americans ≥20 years of age have had a stroke. According to data from the 2012 BRFSS (CDC), 2.9% of men and 2.9% of women ≥18 years of age had a history of stroke.
