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.
My back ground story is here:

Shannon earns national awards for heart, stroke care - San Angelo, TX

Totally fucking worthless, nothing on results, just adherence to processes and guidelines. You could get 100% process adherence and still die. Good for the goals and objectives for your doctor but bad for you. 
1. Nothing on 100% recovery statistics.
2. Nothing on 30-day deaths compared to other hospitals.
3. Nothing on the efficacy of their stroke rehab protocols.
4.  Nothing on tPA full efficacy.
5. Nothing on their misdiagnosis percentage of strokes, especially young strokes.
Guidelines prove nothing.
Shannon Medical Center recently received multiple national awards for its efforts to support better outcomes for cardiac and stroke patients.
The American Heart and American Stroke Association awarded the hospital the Mission: Lifeline Gold Receiving Quality Achievement Award and the Get With The Guidelines-Heart Failure Gold Quality Achievement Award.
Shannon is recognized for having an 85 percent composite adherence and at least 24 consecutive months of 75 percent or higher compliance on all Mission: Lifeline STEMI Receiving Center quality measures to improve the quality of care for patients.
The GWTG-Heart Failure award was earned by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of heart failure patients at a set level for a designated period.
Shannon also received the Mission: Lifeline NSTEMI Silver Quality Achievement Award and the Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award.
