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:

Enter the ‘Stroke Riskometer’

12 other stroke risk calculators here. Your choice as to which is best because our fucking failures of stroke associations haven't analyzed and rated them. Or you could just flip a coin.
Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre launches smartphone application that allows users to calculate their risk of geting a stroke and other major illness.

 KUALA LUMPUR: With an estimated 40,000 Malaysians suffering from stroke each year, and six new cases cropping up every hour, doctors at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre (UKMMC), have come up with something new to reverse this worrying health trend.
Enter the Stroke Riskometer which was launched at the UKMMC last week.
The Star reported that this is the first ever Malay-language smartphone application that allows users to calculate their risk of stroke.
There are two versions of The Stroke Riskometer. A Lite version uses 20 scientifically tested questions for anyone between the ages of 20 and over 90 to calculate the risk of suffering a stroke in the next five to 10 years.
It can also indicate risks for a heart attack, dementia and diabetes. For a small fee, users can upgrade to the Pro version to get personalised advice, save and track results, access to videos and e-mailed results, the Star reported.
Over the past few years, the Government has struggled to reduce red flags in Malaysian healthcare trends, said UKM medical faculty dean Prof Dr Zaleha Abdullah Mahdy.
She said that an estimated 40,000 Malaysians suffer a stroke each year, with six new cases reported every hour.
UKMMC Neurology Unit and the university developed a Bahasa Malaysia version of The Stroke Riskometer, an award-winning app from Auckland University of Technology.
The app is free for download for Android and iOS users, and can be found at Google Play and the App Store.
