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.

Magee Rehabilitation’s Dr. Barbara Browne Named to Philadelphia Magazine’s “Top Docs”

How the fuck can she be a 'top doc' when nothing factual on her results is provided. Nothing on her percentage of patients 100% recovered. Nothing on her patient 30-day death rate. Nothing on the efficacy of her stroke rehab protocols used. NOTHING AT ALL!!!
Sent in that exact question minus the swearing, to their media contact, we'll see if I get a reply. I suggest every stroke survivor ask them for results for comparison purposes.
