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 lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Post-stroke rehabilitation training with cytoflavin: a clinical and neuropsychological study

Whatever the hell evoked potential is? 
https://europepmc.org/abstract/med/30132452

To evaluate the efficacy of cytoflavin in the treatment of patients with chronic cerebral ischemia and mild cognitive impairment predominantly of vascular origin.Treatment results of 140 patients, aged 60-74, with chronic cerebral ischemia were analyzed. The main group included 77 patients (35 men and 42 women of average age 66.38±4.64 years) who received cytoflavin throughout the observation period: 2 tablets twice a day 30 minutes before meals. The comparison group included 63 patients (26 men and 37 women of average age 67.48±5.22 years) who during the whole period of observation received ethyl methyl hydroxypyridine succinate: 2 tablets (250 mg) twice a day, according to the same scheme as in the main group. Treatment efficacy was assessed by neuropsychological testing and P300 evoked potentials.During treatment, there was an improvement in neurophysiological parameters in both groups, which was more pronounced in patients treated with cytoflavin: their P300 amplitude increased by1.3 times in the left hemisphere (from 9.21 (8.36, 10.11) to 12.41 (10.23, 13.37 μV) and 1,7 times in the right hemisphere (from 6.48 (5.26, 7.35) to 11.04 (9.29, 12.18) μV). Our study confirms the advisability of using drugs that have complex cytoprotective and energy-correcting mechanism in patients with cognitive impairment. Cytoflavin has shown the high efficacy and safety and can be recommended as part of complex therapy for cognitive disorders. Using simple and inexpensive instrumental methods (assessment of cognitive P300 evoked potential) along with diagnostic scales in patients with cognitive impairment can significantly objectify the assessment of treatment dynamics.
