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.

Older age, low socioeconomic status, and multiple comorbidities lower the probability of receiving inpatient rehabilitation half a year after stroke

They should have reported on the results of the rehabilitation they received during those months. How many got 100% recovered.

Abstract: Study determined the predictors of receiving inpatient rehabilitation during 7 to 12 months after stroke. A total of 488 patients with new-onset stroke were included. The primary outcome of interest was the probability of receiving inpatient rehabilitation during 7 to 12 months after stroke. The characteristics of both patients and medical care providers were investigated to determine their effect on patients receiving inpatient rehabilitation. Results suggest that older patients, patients of low socioeconomic status, patients with Charlson Comorbidity Index greater than 5, and patients who received outpatient rehabilitation during 4 to 6 months after stroke have a lower rate of receiving inpatient rehabilitation than do their counterparts. In addition, receiving inpatient rehabilitation during 7 to 9 months after stroke is a strong positive predictor of receiving inpatient rehabilitation during 10 to 12 months after stroke. This study revealed that older age, lower socioeconomic status, and multiple comorbidities are negative predictive factors with a cumulative predictive power for the probability of receiving inpatient rehabilitation during 7 to 12 months after stroke.
