Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 15746 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective 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.

Differences in cognitive profiles between traumatic brain injury and stroke: a comparison of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment and Mini-Mental State Examination
investigate the profiles of cognitive impairment through Montreal
Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) and Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE)
in patients with chronic traumatic brain injury (TBI) or stroke and to
evaluate the sensitivity of the two scales in patients with TBI.
In this cohort study, a total of 230 patients were evaluated, including TBI group (n=103) and stroke group (n=127).
The cognitive functions of two groups were evaluated by designated
specialists using Moca (Beijing version) and MMSE (Chinese version).
with the patients with stroke, the patients with TBI received
significantly lower score in orientation subtest and recall subtest in
both tests. MoCA abnormal rates in the TBI group and stroke group were
94% and 87% respectively, while MMSE abnormal rates were 70% and 57%,
respectively. In the TBI group, 87% patients with normal MMSE score had
abnormal MoCA score and in the stroke group, about 70% patients with
normal MMSE score had abnormal MoCA score. The diagnostic consistency of
two scales in the TBI group and the stroke group were 72% and 69%,
our rehabilitation center, patients with TBI may have more extensive
and severe cognitive impairments than patients with stroke, prominently
in orientation and recall domain. In screening post-TBI cognitive
impairment, MoCA tends to be more sensitive than MMSE.
