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:

UK HealthCare's stroke program receives national designation

What a pile of crap. If you can't provide real information like 30-day deaths and 100% recovery statistics, you just buffalo them with bullshit meaningless statistics and processes followed.
Big Whoopee.
University of Kentucky HealthCare has been designated a Comprehensive Stroke Center by The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
Michael Karpf, UK's executive vice president for health affairs, announced Monday that the selection fulfilled UK HealthCare's mission to connect Kentuckians with complex conditions to treatment within the state.
The classification "puts us in fine company," he said. UK HealthCare is one of 63 organizations in the United States with the designation, which means its hospital has staff, training and equipment for round-the-clock availability of specialized treatment. In the region, hospitals at the University of Louisville and University of Cincinnati also carry the designation.
