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.

Assessment of Independent Walking by Stroke Patients: Effects of an Assessment Sheet Used in Convalescence Rehabilitation Ward

The result of this research should have been to point to a fall prevention protocol with efficacy ratings. Assessment is not action, we need action based rehab, not paper shuffling. Paper shuffling gets no survivor to 100% recovery.

Abstract: This study examined the effect of introducing an observation-based walking independence ward assessment sheet. Participants were 181 stroke patients who achieved walking independence between April 2012 and March 2014. Basic information, motor function, higher brain function, and behavioral ADL were retrospectively extracted from medical records, and compared between patients with occurrence and absence of falls after achievement of walking independence. Falls occurred in 21 cases after achievement of walking independence. No significant differences were found in all survey items between the two groups. These results indicate that, from the fall rate and injury situation after the achievement of walking independence, the introduction of an assessment sheet can be introduced for practical use.
