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.

Beyond Alzheimer’s: 7 Types of Dementia Everyone Needs to Know About

You have a likely chance to get dementia post stroke. What the hell is your doctor doing to prevent these possibilities?


1. A documented 33% dementia chance post-stroke from an Australian study?   May 2012.
2. Then this study came out and seems to have a range from 17-66%. December 2013.
3. A 20% chance in this research.   July 2013.

 Beyond Alzheimer’s: 7 Types of Dementia Everyone Needs to Know About 

Even though most people would prefer not to think about death, dementia’s prevalence is all but forcing us to ponder our mortality sooner than we’d like. Despite recent research suggesting cases of cognitive decline are actually decreasing, there are still plenty of scientific minds who think we could be on the cusp of a serious problem. One study went so far as to suggest we’ll see 13.8 million cases of dementia in the U.S. by 2050, which is nearly a three-fold increase.
One of the reasons some medical professionals think we could see such a dramatic rise is because the baby boomers, who make up a substantial portion of the population, have begun to reach the age when the risk for dementia really starts to increase. And contrary to what you may think, Alzheimer’s disease isn’t the only type of cognitive decline out there.
This isn’t meant to be a scare tactic, just a call for more education. The more informed we all are, the sooner we can start having important end-of-life discussions with our loved ones. Consider this your introductory course.

1. Alzheimer’s disease

2. Dementia with Lewy bodies

3. Vascular dementia

4. Frontotemporal dementia

5. Parkinson’s disease dementia

6. Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease

7. Mixed dementia

Not very good details on each at the link.
