1287446 tn?1313947638 Hi everyone. My father is an alzheimer's sufferer. He abruptly began getting much worse in early 2009 and has since lost his ability to do about everything since.

Avatar f tn The most recent one he has been there since Feb 10, 2010 but they only started the physical therapy on about Mar 7, 2010. The physical therapists and doctors are now telling me he probably won't get any better and we should be getting ready to take him home. Everyone before told us it was going to take time but that he was young and should do good. I don't understand how 4 weeks of therapy can convince them he is not going to get better.
Avatar f tn The goal for the acute management of patients with stroke is to stabilize the patient and to complete initial evaluation and diagnostics within a certain time frame after the patient arrives in the hospital. Depending on the results and evaluation of the attending physician, critical decisions may focus on the individualized management of each patient, whether blood pressure control or determination of risk/benefit for thrombolytic intervention are initiated.

Avatar m tn The most common causes of hemorrhagic stroke are hypertension, elderly age group, weakness in the artery wall in the brain and blood coagulation issues. After the acute management of the condition, stabilization of airway, breathing and circulation, the long-term therapy includes rehabilitation. Recovery is variable and hence different requirement of therapy for different patients. Care must be taken for repositioning her to avoid bedsores.
Avatar f tn My husband is 37 years old. In May 2010 he experienced difficulty speaking, fatigue, blurred vision and severe headaches. At the time the doctors told us he had a stroke...after MRI, MRA, CAT Scan, EEG, EKG and a heart haulter monitor it showed that he had no signs of a stroke. He still experiences all of these problems and prevents him from working. He took speech therapy for 3 months with no change. He sees a neurologist monthly and nobody has any answers.

Avatar m tn Diagnosis, management, and treatment of hepatitis C: An update (p 1335-1374) Marc G. Ghany, Doris B. Strader, David L. Thomas, Leonard B. Seeff It is written as a guide to the medical community. The article seems quite thorough and full of useful information. It brings together a great deal of research and discusses a wide range of topics including treatment of hard to treat groups and children. I suspect folks on this board will be making reference to it for some time to come.
Avatar n tn Depending on how an MRI scan is completed it can show both acute and chronic strokes. Radiologists comment on the fact that there is no acute stroke either to indicate that they did special imaging to look for an acute stroke, or because this is a common reason to obtain a MRI of the brain. Chronic strokes can be seen with standard MRI techniques, and therefore the comment normal MRI excludes the presence of chronic strokes.
