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.

A clean sheet of paper on stroke

What would your doctor and stroke hospital do if nothing was known about stroke? Discuss amongst your stroke professionals.
I'm sure we wouldn't spend 22 years trying to beat life into the dead horse of tPA.
I'm also sure no one would suggest we give muscle relaxants to the whole body in the hope that impaired muscles might function if spasticity of their antagonist muscle was reduced.

Here is Seth Godins' take on it;

A clean sheet of paper

The last few clues on the crossword are the easiest to decode... there aren't as many choices.
Over time, we let the grid at work get filled up, and spend our work day filling in the little tiny corners. We address the undone tasks or find the small improvements that are next on the list.
Sometimes, this tiny incrementalism leads to a big idea. But often, it's the freedom (and fear) of a clean sheet that opens the door to a different path forward.
Of course, the paper is never fully blank. We have countless assumptions about what our assets are, what's achievable and where we're comfortable. These assumptions could be suspended if we cared enough.
The best time to work with a clean sheet is long before you're confronted with one.
