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.

This 5-minute test could detect if you are at risk for Alzheimer's disease

I could find no research in Google Scholar so I have no clue what proof this has that it works.
But this is on their website;
Our Imprint Check-Up is based on a landmark research study by Dr. Stuart Zola at Emory University. Dr. Zola found that participants’ performance on a longer 30-minute assessment was highly predictive of their cognitive decline. He tracked each person's level of cognitive decline and then correlated it with his or her assessment result over 3 years.

Your doctor should be following this up so you have a baseline measurement before you get dementia/Alzheimers.
1. A documented 33% dementia chance post-stroke from an Australian study?   May 2012.
2. Then this study came out and seems to have a range from 17-66%. December 2013.
3. A 20% chance in this research.   July 2013.
If you have anything close to a decent doctor a protocol will already be in place to prevent this from occurring.
