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:

Langdon Place to host free seminar on stroke prevention, treatment - Dover, NH

You have to control the presentation. Start by asking their statistics on 30 day deaths, 100% full recovery, tPA full efficacy as compared to other stroke hospitals around the US. Next set of questions.
How exactly how they are solving all these problems in stroke? I know they will try to mention all the guidelines they are following and the care they deliver. That means fucking nothing. DEMAND RESULT STATISTICS and how they are making those results better!
Yes, I'm a bastard but being nice hasn't improved stroke recovery for decades. Your doctors and hospitals won't improve stroke recovery without external pressure and being nice isn't going to do it.
DOVER - Langdon Place of Dover, a Genesis HealthCare Community providing Residential, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Rehabilitation Services, will host a free seminar conducted by Wentworth-Douglass Hospital on how to prevent and treat strokes on Wednesday, January 25 at 2 p.m. at Langdon Place of Dover, 60 Middle Road, Dover. The seminar is open to the public.
The seminar will focus on the symptoms of strokes; who is at risk; how to prevent strokes; what is the best treatment for a stroke; new medical advances in stroke care; when is surgery necessary; what to expect for rehabilitation for a stroke patient; and as a Primary Stroke Center, what Wentworth-Douglass Hospital offers for acute stroke care in the Seacoast. Also, the seminar will include information on the Neurological Rehabilitation Day Program at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital.
Wentworth-Douglass was the first hospital in New Hampshire to earn Primary Stroke Center Advanced Certification by The Joint Commission, the nation's leading healthcare accrediting agency. As a Primary Stroke Center, Wentworth-Douglass provides the best practices in acute stroke care to achieve better outcomes for patients using state-of-the-art diagnostic criteria. Through its clinical affiliation with Massachusetts General Hospital, Wentworth-Douglass has full access to their expert clinicians through telemedicine videoconferencing, which allows stroke specialists in Boston to interact with patients and providers in real-time to diagnosis and make treatment recommendations.
