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:

What’s the RUSH (Research to Understand Stroke due to Haemorrhage)?

58 minutes; too long: didn't listen. I don't have time for this. Our fucking failures of stroke associations have employees that should be summarizing this. But they won't even try to do this simple task. I'm not going to do their work for them.
 Professor Rustam Al-Shahi Salman is professor of clinical neurology at the University of Edinburgh and an honorary consultant neurologist in NHS Lothian. His Research to Understand Stroke due to Haemorrhage (RUSH) programme focuses on the deadliest type of stroke known as brain haemorrhage, which is caused by spontaneous bleeding from blood vessels into the brain. Each year this disease affects about 2 million adults worldwide, 10,000 of whom are in the UK. RUSH is dedicated to better understanding the causes and consequences of brain haemorrhage, and to design randomised controlled trials to improve its outcome. Professor Salman’s inaugural lecture will describe a doctor’s quest to achieve these simple objectives in the complex world of medical research.
