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.

Coffee reduces the risk of death after acute myocardial infarction: A meta-analysis

Coffee, coffee, coffee. What role does coffee play in your diet protocol?

Brown OI, et al. – This study's purpose was to explore whether coffee consumption influenced mortality after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). It was concluded that drinking coffee habitually following AMI was connected with a lessened risk of mortality.

Methods

  • In this study, the researchers carried out a dose–response meta-analysis of prospective studies that inspected the affiliation between coffee intake and mortality after an AMI.
  • Utilizing a defined-search strategy, electronic databases (MEDLINE and Embase) were searched for papers published somewhere around 1946 and 2015.
  • 2 eligible studies investigating post-AMI mortality risk against coffee consumption were distinguished and assessed utilizing set criteria.    
  • Combined, these studies enlisted a sum of 3271 patients and 604 passed on.  
  •  The hazard ratios for the following experimental groups were characterized: light coffee drinkers (1–2 cups/day) versus noncoffee drinkers, heavy coffee drinkers (>2 cups/day) versus noncoffee drinkers and heavy coffee drinkers versus light coffee drinkers.

Results

  • Researchers found that a statistically significant inverse correlation was observed between coffee drinking and mortality; all 3 groups demonstrated a significant reduction in risk ratio.
  • They added that light coffee drinkers versus noncoffee drinkers were connected with a risk ratio of 0.79 [95% confidence interval (CI): 0.66–0.94, P=0.008]; heavy coffee drinkers versus noncoffee drinkers were connected with a risk ratio of 0.54 (95% CI: 0.45–0.65, P<0.00001); and heavy coffee drinkers versus light coffee drinkers were connected with a risk ratio of 0.69 (95% CI: 0.58–0.83, P<0.0001).
