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:

NHS denies fears home visits could replace stroke recovery units at new health hub

You are arguing about the wrong thing. What the fuck are the recovery results from either option? That will tell you which way to go, if neither option gets you to 100% recovery, then ask when the hell that goal will be met. Screaming may be required.
THE NHS has denied claims that plans are being put in place to replace stroke recovery beds in Maldon’s health centre with a home visit service that has yet to be invented.
St Peter’s Hospital, on Spital Road, which offers beds for stroke patients as well as maternity services, could be replaced by a bed-free health centre.
Concerns have been raised about the Home First service, which some fear is earmarked to care for stroke patients in place of the recovery beds.
David Wilkin, chairman of Longfield patient reference group and a Maldon Health Hub stakeholder, said: “The trouble is we know nothing about Home First. It is very much in its infancy.
“It is difficult to predict the impact this will have on patients because we simply do not know what the changes really are. I accept there has to be a change because the NHS is short of money, but my opposition is we have to really investigate how we are doing things. They have to provide us with answers as to how it works.”
Maldon has a higher stroke risk than the national average and an ageing population.
The Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group, which is working to provide the health centre, says the evidence for a bed-free hub stems from conversations with patients and a patient steer.
Mr Wilkin believes this is insufficient. He said: “Ask any patient in hospital if they would prefer to be at home and we can guess the response — but this does not constitute forming a police for a hub without beds.
