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.

Helping Jamaicans Achieve Better Outcomes after a Stroke Rehab Caribbean Public Lecture, July 20, 2017, Kingston

Too fucking bad if you sign up after July 15th, demand to be allowed in.
A couple of simple questions to DEMAND answers to;
1. 100% recovery statistics?
2. 30-day deaths compared to other hospitals?
3. Efficacy of their stroke rehab protocols?
4.  tPA full efficacy?
5. Misdiagnosis percentage of strokes, especially young strokes?
The Rehabilitation Institute of the Caribbean is pleased to announce Rehabilitation Now Forum, an academic and informative lecture series on the role of rehabilitation in the treatment of common physical ailments.
In its inaugural lecture scheduled for July 20, 2017 at 5:30pm, our distinguished speakers include US-board certified physiatrist (rehabilitation medical doctor) Dr. Paula Dawson and our team of stroke rehabilitation experts will share with attendees the team approach to stroke rehabilitation which can result in better outcomes for stroke patients.
Our stroke rehabilitation team will explain how they identify and treat the functional problems caused by a stroke in an effort to assist stroke patients to regain maximum recovery and in many cases, independence in regular, everyday activities.
According to the most recent data from the World Health Organisation, stroke is ranked as the leading non-communicable disease in Jamaica accounting for the death of over three thousand Jamaicans. However, studies have shown that victims tend to recover sooner when they benefit from a multidisciplinary, stroke rehabilitation program and strong family support. A secondary objective of this forum is to provide useful advice to family members as they offer emotional and psychological support to the stroke patients.
This public lecture will be held at the Rehabilitation Institute of the Caribbean located at Suites 2A-C, Liguanea Post Mall, 115 Hope Road, Kingston 6. Admission is free with R.S.V.P. by July 15.
