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.

FDA approves a visor to detect strokes - Cerebrotech, 30 seconds

67-year-old Oliver Peart is getting back to his routine after a major health scare.

8 months ago, he was at work when suddenly he couldn't move the left side of his body. He was rushed to the emergency room where doctors used a portable, wireless visor to determine he suffered a severe stroke.
The Cerebrotech visor transmits low-power radio waves through the brain looking for changes in blood flow. It takes just 30 seconds to analyze the fluids.
"The big thing about a stroke is that there's asymmetry when one of the arteries feeding one side of the brain is blocked compared to the other side. So, we can detect that with this visor," says Dr. Christopher Kellner, director of the Intracerebral Hemorrhage Program at Mount Sinai Hospital.
Kellner says the goal of the visor technology is to help quickly identify patients who have had a severe stroke so they can receive immediate treatment.
"Time is brain. As someone is having a stroke, they're losing many, many neurons every second. And so anytime we can decrease from that is very important," he says.
"My brain functioning starting to go south, you know. And it was really scary," Peart says.
He says he's grateful he was treated at an ER testing the new technology.
"The type of stroke I had, a lot of time the patient doesn't survive… so you know, I'm lucky," he says.
Peart says the only lingering side effect is some vision loss in his left eye.
