Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 13663 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.

Impact of Nutritional Supplementation and a Psychomotor Program on Patients With Alzheimer’s Disease
study aims to evaluate the impact of oral nutritional supplementation
(ONS) and a psychomotor rehabilitation program on nutritional and
functional status of community-dwelling patients with Alzheimer’s
disease (AD). A 21-day prospective randomized controlled trial was
conducted and third intervention group performed a psychomotor
rehabilitation program. Patients were followed up for 180 days. Mean
(standard deviation) score of Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA)
increased both in the nutritional supplementation group (NSG; n = 25),
0.4 (0.8), and in the nutritional supplementation psychomotor
rehabilitation program group (NSPRG; n = 11), 1.5 (1.0), versus −0.1
(1.1) in the control group (CG; n = 43), P < .05. Further improvements at 90-day follow-up for MNA in NSG: 1.3 (1.2) and NSPRG: 1.6 (1.0) versus 0.3 (1.7) in CG (P
< .05) were observed. General linear model analysis showed that the
NSG and NSPRG ▵MNA score improved after intervention, at 21 days and 90
days, was independent of the MNA and Mini-Mental State Examination
scores at baseline (Ps > .05). The ONS and a psychomotor
rehabilitation program have a positive impact on long-term nutritional
and functional status of patients with AD.
