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:

IBM Watson to integrate MedyMatch's AI-based brain bleed detector

Notice that nothing here is being directed from our fucking failures of stroke associations.
MedyMatch and IBM are teaming up to bring a decision-support tool that detects bleeding in the brain to emergency rooms. The artificial intelligence-driven application will be integrated in IBM Watson Health Imaging’s offerings.
The tool is designed to help physicians identify areas in the brain where there could be potential bleeding, said MedyMatch CEO Gene Saragnese. When a patient undergoes a head CT scan in a hospital, it is sent either to an onsite processor or an offsite processor through the cloud, he said. The application uses deep learning, other patient data and clinical insights to indicate where bleeding may be present.
While the tool itself is complex, the workflow is simple, Saragnese said. Once the case is interpreted, it is returned to the hospital’s information system, so multiple physicians may view it at the same time. The whole process is designed to take less than five minutes, he said. Other detection systems are under that, 5 minutes is way too long.

Quickly identifying intracranial bleeding in the case of hemorrhagic stroke can minimize the long-term effects and could prevent death, according to the American Stroke Association. Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S.
Launched early last year, Tel Aviv-based MedyMatch aims to deploy decision-support tools to improve healthcare, starting with the emergency room. Under the agreement, Watson Health’s imaging group will distribute the brain bleed detection tool through its established sales channels, according to a statement.
“[MedyMatch] is focused on creating new applications that help physicians make decisions in acute care settings,” Saragnese said. “… We’re not actually interested in creating a very, very large distribution network or sales force because they exist today.” The collaboration allows MedyMatch to leverage IBM’s existing infrastructure to bring its decision-support to more hospitals around the world.
Last summer, MedyMatch joined forces with New Jersey’s Capital Health to apply artificial intelligence to the analysis of stroke patients’ medical images.
