Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective 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.

Rumor mill: Apple wants to use sensors to detect heart attacks
Apple is looking to expand into new product categories, but just what those categories may be is currently a mystery. However, according to a report from the San Francisco Chronicle,
the answer might end up being very surprising — the paper claims that
Apple is looking to expand into both medical devices and cars.
A device that listens to your blood
The report is light on details, but the Chronicle claims that Apple is particularly interested in medicine, and is working with audio engineer Tomlinson Holman
to develop a device that could predict heart attacks by listening to
the sound of your blood. Holman is known for developing several notable
audio technologies, including Lucasfilm's THX system and the first 10.2
sound system. This isn't the first we've heard of Apple's interest in
medicine — last month some of Apple's top executives reportedly met with
the US Food and Drug Administration to discuss the potential for "mobile medical applications."
