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.

Stroke victims can be diagnosed TEN TIMES more accurately thanks to incredible new technology developed in Scotland

So you are going down the complete nocebo route. You will only recover so far, that lets the doctor off the hook for getting you 100% recovered. No point in doing any further stroke rehab research then, the computer never lies. The status quo is just fine for those who have never had a stroke. FUCKING LAZY ASSHOLES!

A new computer programme can predict more accurately than ever before a patient’s cognitive function — including speech and memory skills — after suffering a blood clot on the brain
STROKE victims can now be diagnosed TEN TIMES more accurately than current methods after breakthrough research carried out in Scotland.
A new computer programme can predict more accurately than ever before a patient’s cognitive function — including speech and memory skills — after suffering a blood clot on the brain.
New method can predict how patients will be in future
The software measures visible injuries from cerebral small vessel disease — which can lead to dementia — and brain degeneration.
It does this by translating millions of pieces of information stored in scans into a “brain health index”.
And researchers believe this will lead to better outcomes for the 31,000 Scots stroke survivors each year.
Dr David Dickie, a research fellow at the University of Glasgow, explained: “Right now scans are reviewed from different bits and pieces of damage caused by strokes.
“A doctor will then use their experience to say what they think the effects of that damage will be.
“But that can vary as two different doctors could give two different results which can lead to a disagreement about how you would do in the future.
“What we are trying to do is use the scan to predict far more accurately the outcomes of speech and other functions.
“It will standardise the results.
“This is a more mathematical approach and is then better at predicting how good you are going to be cognitively in the future.”
