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.

UK Stroke Forum - Monday 28 - Wednesday 30 November 2016 ACC, Liverpool

Looking at the schedule, it seems to be a complete waste, nothing on any of the problems in stroke and the session 'How to achieve 45 minutes of therapy a day?' has got to be a joke. The goal should be 10-12 hours of therapy a day, including action observation, PROM, lucid dreaming, mirror box therapy, thermal stimulation, positive side effects of eating spicy foods.  This is a perfect example of the incompetence in stroke.
