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 patients claim lack of rehabilitation therapy is putting recovery at risk

Wrong. It is lack of results from rehabilitation putting recovery at risk. Only 10% of stroke survivors almost fully recover. At least describe the problem correctly.

It is claimed stroke patients are having their recoveries put at risk because of a lack of rehabilitation therapy.

Steven Rix from Brigg

Steven Rix from Brigg had a stroke last year and only gets one 45 minute session per week.

The Stroke Association says he – and others like him – would recover quicker if they received sessions five days a week. James Webster reports.

The quality of care and survival rates for stroke are now at record highs. NHS England is rolling out new high tech stroke treatments and is working with professional organisations and others local health service leaders to improve rehabilitation care for everyone who suffers a stroke.

More strokes are preventable so we’re also backing further effort on managing risk factors.”
