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:

How to detect stroke on time and avoid distability?

They don't bother to tell you how fucking unlikely it is that even if transported quickly to the hospital you will fully recover. You might survive as I did, getting tPA in 90 minutes but no cigar on the full recovery.
Stroke is a very dangerous disease. If only it is detected in time a patient has a chance to live and avoid disability. May be some of our tips will help you to save somebody's life.

A chance to live

Only a few decades ago, the attacks of stroke were mainly observed in the elderly age. And in our time increasingly stroke is reaping its fruits in the form of health, and sometimes takes away lives of young and healthy people.
Some of the stroke victims die, others become disabled. Those who died from stroke could have been saved if the people who were near at the moment of the attack, were able to diagnose the problem, knew the rules of the first aid for stroke and had enough time to provide this first aid.
If you have time within 3 hours after the start of the stroke to deliver the patient to the hospital, there is a strong possibility to save him and reduce the degree of complications and disability. The time span of three hours from the beginning of the stroke is called in medicine "therapeutic window." This is a period, during which it is possible to provide effective assistance in a hospital.

Nowadays there are already some drugs which can dissolve blood clots in the vessels. Those which course[sic] the stroke itself.  In more severe cases, it is important to have surgery to remove a hematoma, due to which the adjacent parts of the brain will remain healthy. From a stroke, a patient does not die immediately. So there is time for help.
It takes only a few moments to read the following ...
Neurosurgeons are sure to save a patient within 3 hours after the stroke.(Really!, in what universe is that?)  The consequences of an attack can be eliminated.(Fucking unlikely)  It is possible if you know the first signs of a stroke.
To detect stroke symptoms, you need to know five tips and symptoms for recognition.

How to detect stroke fast

Take these five points into consideration.
First, the possible signs of a stroke are a sudden weakness, dizziness, loss of balance, disturbed coordination of movements.
Second, before you have more accurately diagnose, ask the person to smile. If he can not this is a symptom.
Third, ask to tell a simple sentence (e.g., The weather is beautiful today).
Fourth, ask to raise both hands up. In the case of a stroke, he can not or only partly can raise.
Fifth, ask to flick out the tongue out of the mouth. If a tongue is twisted, it is a symptom of a stroke.
If problems are evident even with one of these tasks, call the ambulance, describe symptoms by phone and use the advice given below.

How to avoid disability yourself

Sometimes, a heart attack or a stroke happens when there is no one who could help. So if you suddenly feel that your heart is beating "wrong" way, and you are close to fainting, you only have about 10 seconds before you lose consciousness.
Meanwhile, all victims of heart attacks could help themselves. For this goal, you need to start coughing many times and with great force. Each time before you make a cough, take a deep breath. A coming cough must be deep and prolonged as if you get sputum deeply from a chest.
