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.

Increased risk for dementia both before and after stroke: A population-based study in women followed over 44 years

Demand your doctor give you protocols to prevent such dementia. If you don't DEMAND this your doctor will do nothing and you will have to figure it out on your own. Isn't this exactly why you pay doctors?

Increased risk for dementia both before and after stroke: A population-based study in women followed over 44 years

In a large population of women followed over 44 years, researchers studied the risk of dementia before and after stroke. From 1968 to 2012, a population sample of 1460 women without stroke or dementia at baseline was followed over 44 years. From neuropsychiatric examinations, key-informant interviews, hospital registry, and medical records, information on stroke and dementia was obtained. In women, the age-specific incidence of the stroke and dementia was comparable. Both before and after stroke, women with stroke had increased risk for dementia. They found that the increased risk of dementia continued more than 11 years after the stroke. The study findings might have important implications for understanding the link between stroke and dementia, for the prevention and treatment of dementia and stroke, and for the classification of subtypes of dementia disorders.
