Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain! trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 523 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:

My blog is not to help survivors recover, it is to have the 10 million yearly stroke survivors light fires underneath their doctors, stroke hospitals and stroke researchers to get stroke solved. 100% recovery. The stroke medical world is completely failing at that goal, they don't even have it as a goal. 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.My back ground story is here:

Rapid Assessment of Blood Pressure Variability and Outcome After Successful Thrombectomy

 So you described a problem and yet did nothing to solve it. Useless.

When the hell are we going to get a  blood pressure protocol? While you dither stroke survivors continue to get disabled due to your lack of protocols.  Isn't it your job to deliver stroke recovery protocols?



  • blood pressure variability (3 posts to July 2016)

  • blood pressure management (25 posts to June 2017)

  •  And much earlier than that: One of the oldest questions in acute stroke management, and perhaps the most challenging since it has yet to be solved after more than half a century of published research, is how to manage high blood pressure (BP).

Rapid Assessment of Blood Pressure Variability and Outcome After Successful Thrombectomy

Originally published 2021;52:e531–e535


Background and Purpose:

High blood pressure (BP) variability after endovascular stroke therapy is associated with poor outcome. Conventional BP variability measures require long recordings, limiting their utility as a risk assessment tool to guide clinical decision-making. Here, we performed rapid assessment of BP variability by spectral analysis and evaluated its association with early clinical improvement and long-term functional outcomes.


We conducted a prospective study of 146 patients with anterior circulation ischemic stroke who underwent successful endovascular stroke therapy. Spectral analysis of 5-minute recordings of beat-to-beat BP was used to quantify BP variability. Outcomes included initial clinical response and modified Rankin Scale at 90 days.


Increased BP variability at high frequencies was independently associated with poor functional outcome at 90 days (adjusted odds ratio [aOR], 1.85 [95% CI, 1.07–3.25], P=0.03; low-/high-frequency ratio aOR, 0.67 [95% CI, 0.46–0.92], P=0.02) and reduced likelihood of an early neurological recovery (aOR, 0.62 [95% CI, 0.44–0.91], P=0.01 and aOR, 1.37 [95% CI, 1.03–1.87], P=0.04, respectively).


High-frequency BP oscillations after successful reperfusion may be harmful and associate with a decreased likelihood of neurological recovery and favorable functional outcomes. Rapid assessment of BP variability throughout the postreperfusion period is feasible and may allow for a more personalized BP management.

There is an increased risk of hemorrhagic transformation and worse outcome in patients with increased blood pressure (BP) during the first hours after endovascular stroke therapy (EVT).1,2 Because of impaired cerebral autoregulation with resulting susceptibility to cerebral hypoperfusion or hyperperfusion,3 avoiding large BP swings after revascularization may be as important as treating high BP levels. Conventional measures of BP variability usually require 24 hours of BP monitoring, limiting their usefulness for clinical decisions making. This study aimed to assess BP variability from 5-minute beat-to-beat recordings using spectral analysis and evaluate its ability to predict early neurological recovery and long-term functional outcome.
