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:

Sexual Function After Stroke: A Case Report on Rehabilitation Intervention With a Geriatric Survivor

I know damn well I didn't have any Quality of Sexual Function Scale testing.  This would have been much more useful with much younger clients. My recreational therapist just said sex was ok to do.
And you do need sex post-stroke.

This article describes the case of a 69-year-old, married, Hispanic heterosexual woman who suffered a right cerebral vascular accident. Assessment measures utilized to identify barriers to sexual activity were the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure, Quality of Sexual Function Scale, and the Stroke Impact Scale. Goals were established in collaboration with the client, and interventions addressed a wide range of barriers. This case demonstrates how occupational therapy and the interprofessional team addressed limitations in engagement in sexual activities. Data collected postintervention showed significant changes in sexual activity, satisfaction, and perceived quality of life. This case demonstrates the importance of addressing sexual activity with clients poststroke and how the health care team can implement strategies to help clients address barriers to this essential human activity.
