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 is your doctor and stroke hospital keeping up with stroke research?

I have written almost 7 posts a day this year, the vast majority pointing to research that might help us or needs to be followed up on.  For those that need followup what is your doctor doing? If ANYTHING AT ALL? For those that can help stroke survivors, what are the procedures to update the stroke protocols in use at that hospital?  The answers to those two questions will tell you how fucking incompetent your hospital is. And the only way to address that is removal of the staff from the president and board of directors all the way down.  This is going to be painful but stroke survivors need much better support than they are getting currently. Everything in stroke is a fucking failure.

I leave my rants open ended because they keep going forever.
