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.

Get involved in National Stroke Awareness Month

Once again the NSA doing peripheral crapola rather than than focusing on the real issues in stroke. And the NSA president is too chickenshit to contact me or other strong stroke voices. The community slide presentation needs one that covers 'Everything in stroke is a failure, you're screwed'.
But the NSA has no urgency to even acknowledge or tackle all the fucking problems in stroke. Their heads are buried so far up their asses they will never try to fix anything in stroke.

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.

And the worst part is they don't even recognize their failures because they have no survivor outreach program. Survivors are used as pity pots to bring in donations.


Stroke: It Happens in an Instant
A stroke is an emergency—it can happen to anyone at any time and at any age. What happens when someone experiences a stroke and what occurs on the way to the hospital and in the hospital is the focus of this year’s National Stroke Awareness Month video. Help save a life by knowing what signs and symptoms to look for.
