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.

May is National Stroke Awareness Month

So you need to be aware that everything in stroke is a complete failure. And the National Stroke Association is doing NOTHING to solve any of these problems. Fucking lazy awareness campaigns are good enough for them. Not good enough for ANY stroke survivor. It is why stroke survivors need to take over stroke associations.  I bet Robyn Moore will never work up enough courage to contact me, email on side column Robyn or comment on post. A great stroke association president would be contacting all their critics for insight to survivor needs.
1. Only 10% of patients get to full recovery.
2. tPA only fully works to reverse the stroke 12% of the time. Known since 1996.
3. No protocols to prevent your 33% dementia chance post-stroke from an Australian study.
4. Nothing to alleviate your fatigue.
5. Nothing that will cure your spasticity.
6. Nothing on cognitive training unless you find this yourself.
7. No published stroke protocols.
8. No way to compare your stroke hospital results vs. other stroke hospitals.

Some 65,000 Americans will experience a stoke during the month of May with many unaware that they were even at risk of having a stroke. Less than a third will arrive in the emergency room within three hours, the optimal time period for better outcomes.

It is critical we elevate the conversation around stroke symptoms and risk factors. This year, we will be amplifying the voices of thousands of stroke supporters to release a single unified message across social media on May 23. You can help us raise stroke awareness during the month of May by joining our Thunderclap.
Throughout the month we encourage everyone to take a look at their stroke risk factors, and make a pledge to reduce one modifiable risk factor during the month. One of the easiest ways to reduce your stroke risk is to become more active. Physically active people have a 25% – 30% lower risk of stroke than less active individuals. Join us for the Steps to Stop Stroke step challenge, where participants can log their daily steps for a chance to win some great prizes while they train for an upcoming Comeback Trail 5K.
Please consider adding your voice to ours during National Stroke Awareness Month as we raise awareness for stroke risk factors, stroke symptoms, and the need to call 9-1-1 if you suspect a stroke. The life you save just might be your own or a loved one’s.
Sincerely,
