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:

What evidence does your doctor need to start using some hyperacute therapies that may stop the neuronal cascade of death?

The answer had better not be, ' When the Joint Commission includes it in their guidelines'
Or is the answer, 'I won't change anything from what I learned in medical school'
Or, 'I'm waiting for someone else to do the work to prove efficacy'
Is any of those answers a doctor worth trusting saving your neurons to?
177 possibilities needing research.
31 things I will be demanding my doctor give me. I will take charge of my own therapy because otherwise my doctor will just allow my neurons to die thru inaction. 
Don't do this because you will be practicing medicine, something your doctor obviously knows very little about. And you'll probably get arrested. So charge your doctor with murdering your neurons by medical neglect.
