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.

Tsunami of stroke

Its coming and no one is prepared. The existing number of neurologists and therapists will not be able to handle the workload coming. Two possibilities;
1. We just discharge them to home and instruct the caretakers like India is testing right now.
2. We revamp everything because we have figured out how to stop the neuronal cascade of death, that results in vastly less disability and the existing stroke infrastructure can handle that.
Anyone having a stroke in future years is totally screwed. Tell your parents right now to prepare to die or be disabled if they have a stroke because there is no planning or strategy  for stroke.
