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:

Taking Stroke Tx on the Road

Damn, damn, damn, going down the failure path again. While this might help in the short term it's just delaying the search for something that actually works. A 12% tPA efficacy rate is not a success by any stretch of the imagination. This is why no one in the stroke medical world should be making decisions about stroke. They fail almost every time. You notice they are using a portable CT scanner rather than seeing if one of the fast and objective possibilities are worth using.  Cost a hell of a lot less than 1M.
"My prediction is that 10 years from now every city in the country will have imaging on their ambulances,"
You are going to be so wrong with that stupid prediction, the tricorder will be used to diagnose stroke long before then. Do you even know about anything newer than 30 years ago?  Turn in your medical license now.
