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.

Millions in Donations Expanding Stroke and Brain Aneurysm Research and Education - Baptist Health, Jacksonville FL

YOU will need to get involved to make sure these donations actually are used to solve some of these problems in stroke. You can't let the researchers decide this on their own they need to be following your strategy, actually doing research that helps survivors. None should go for education, that is just conscious laundering.

Jacksonville, Fla. (PRWEB) January 12, 2017
Baptist Health will expand its research and education efforts for stroke and brain aneurysms thanks to recent charitable donations totaling $6 million -- including a $1.1 million gift by a grateful patient.
The donation was made by an anonymous patient and spouse to establish the Ricardo Hanel, MD, and Eric Sauvageau, MD, Chair in Neurovascular Surgery at the Baptist Neurological Institute. That donation will be matched by Baptist Health for a total endowment of about $2.5 million, which will provide permanent, ongoing funding for brain treatment and research.
Dr. Hanel, director of the Baptist Neurological Institute, and Dr. Sauvageau, director of the Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center at Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, are nationally and internationally recognized as leaders in treating brain aneurysms, acute stroke and cerebrovascular conditions using the latest minimally invasive techniques and groundbreaking clinical trials.
"Drs. Hanel and Sauvageau are on a mission to save lives throughout the region," said Hugh Greene, president and CEO of Baptist Health. "Thanks to their tireless efforts, as well the generosity of our donors, Baptist is helping to define the new frontier in stroke and brain aneurysm treatment."
Also funded by the $6 million in donations from corporate and private donors will be endowments focused on clinical program development for treating cerebrovascular conditions in adults and children, as well as expanding community outreach and awareness for stroke and brain aneurysms.
In addition to the anonymous donors, one of the other donations recently came from long-time Beaches residents Cheryl and Tom Rackley who designated $1 million to support neurological needs for Beaches residents and $500,000 to the Baptist Neurological Institute Endowment. Cheryl was treated by Dr. Hanel for a brain aneurysm in 2015.
"The generosity of these gifts are really inspiring," Dr. Hanel said. "The donations allow us to continue doing advanced research and education while providing the best cerebrovascular care in the region for all ages and all socio-economic levels, especially to the under privileged."
"These commitments are truly amazing and will allow us to develop the program further and provide support to educate and reach more people in the community," Dr. Sauvageau added.
Drs. Hanel and Sauvageau, who came to Baptist Health in 2014, helped to establish the Baptist Neurological Institute and Baptist Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center, which leads the region for new minimally invasive treatment of the brain, including clinical trials. Thanks in large part to their leadership, Baptist Jacksonville also now has one of the largest neurointensive care units in the state and the first ER with beds dedicated to neurological needs.
