Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 12874 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective 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:http://oc1dean.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-background-story_8.html
occur in about 10% of stroke patients. Hence, stroke is the most common
cause of seizures and epilepsy in the elderly population. Five percent
are early-onset seizures (peak onset within the first day after the
stroke) and another 5% are late-onset seizures (peak onset within 6 to
12 months after the stroke). Epilepsy (ie,
recurrent seizures) develops in 3% to 4% of the stroke patients (in
about one third of the patients with early-onset seizures and about one
half of the patients with late-onset seizures). There is a strong
positive correlation between stroke severity and the risk of post-stroke
seizures; the risk is very low in mild strokes. Seizures are more
common in hemorrhagic stroke and in stroke with cortical involvement.
Whether this is due to the hemorrhagic component or the cortical
involvement per se, or a reflection of more severe strokes among
patients with hemorrhagic strokes and lesions involving cortical
structures, is not clear. The influence of seizures on outcome is still a
matter of controversy. Although epileptic seizures are considered easy
to control, this is not supported by evidence from randomized controlled
