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.

The IgNobel Prizes, 2013! What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Be careful out there.

Presenting this year’s IgNobel Peace Prize! To the president of Belarus, Alexandar Lukashenko, for making it illegal to applaud in public. The Belarus State Police apparently then arrested a one-arms man for applauding.
But for our purposes the Zen Koan needs to be answered by your doctor.
"Two hands clap and there is a sound, what is the sound of one hand?
The answer;
There is a book;
One Hand Clapping is a 1961 work by Anthony Burgess 
There's this YouTube video if you want to emulate him.

The Amazing One-Handed Clap!



Takeaway, Don't visit Belarus after your stroke.

Its depressing not to be able to clap after a theater performance.   Leaving Iowa last night at the Riverwalk theater.
