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.

CME - Acute Ischemic Stroke: Overcoming Barriers by Improving Systems of Care

Nothing on rehab, so that tells you they don't need improving at least as doctors see it.

According to the American Heart Association, strokes are experienced by approximately 795,000 Americans each year and remain the leading cause of disability in North America. It is important for emergency room physicians to identify and treat patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) quickly in order to best retain patients’ quality of life. Treatment of AIS is time sensitive, and with the recent updates to the use of endovascular procedures and thrombolytic therapy, physicians need to be prepared for a shift in the treatment paradigm without compromising patient safety. In this activity, leading neurologists and emergency medicine physicians discuss the latest evidence and recommendations on stroke management, including updates to guidelines on thrombolytic use, new data concerning endovascular procedures, and information on how the use of telemedicine and collaboration between stroke systems of care can improve processes and patient outcomes.

  Take the test.
