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.

Strokes to be discussed at county board meeting - Sturtevant WI

More awareness crapola rather than discussing all the fucking problems in stroke. Good conscience laundering though.

YORKVILLE — Racine County Board Supervisor Mark Gleason, a stroke survivor, will speak about his experience with strokes during a County Board meeting Tuesday, according to a news release issued by County Executive Jonathan Delagrave’s office.
The presentation will be given at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Ives Grove Complex, 14200 Washington Ave., as part of the regular County Board meeting.
Presenters will include Dr. Tom Wolfe, neurologist and stroke prevention specialist, and another professional from Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center. They will discuss the physical and neurological effects of stroke, signs of a stroke, and recommended actions in case of a suspected stroke.
Gleason said he wanted to raise public awareness about strokes after surviving one last year.
“You can survive a stroke and have a very normal life. You can recover,” he said. “It’s not like it used to be. And that’s what the medical professionals are going to talk about.”
The National Stroke Association holds Stroke Awareness Month annually in May. The association’s mission is “to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.” According to the association:
Stroke is the fifth-leading cause of death in America and a leading cause of adult disability.
Each year, about 185,000 people die from a stroke.

Up to 80 percent of strokes can be prevented.
There are nearly 7 million stroke survivors in the United States.
“Education and awareness are crucial factors for saving or supporting someone who is experiencing a stroke,” Delagrave stated. “The public is welcome and encouraged to attend the presentation.”
