What is the role of a speech-language pathologist in stroke rehabilitation?
Natalia Rost, MD, Neurology, answeredA speech-language pathologist helps you improve your capacity to speak and understand speech. If your stroke has caused a speech or language disorder, you should also have a hearing evaluation to make sure your communication difficulties stem from damage to the language centers of the brain and not from hearing loss. A speech and language pathologist will also work with people who have lost some ability to swallow and other oral-motor skills. About 45% of stroke patients have difficulty swallowing fluids or food.
How do other illnesses affect anoxic brain injuries?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Cardiovascular disease and strokes can affect anoxic brain injuries by putting you at higher risk for them. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for a significant number of all cardiac arrests, and cardiac arrests are a common cause of anoxic brain injuries. Strokes can also lead to the oxygen deprivation that causes anoxic brain injuries.
What is cognitive rehabilitation therapy in stroke rehabilitation?
Natalia Rost, MD, Neurology, answeredStroke can disrupt cognitive abilities, including memory, learning, and awareness. Cognitive rehabilitation is a type of therapy that uses strategies to compensate for lost abilities, rather than to recover them. If you have short-term memory loss, for example, you may be shown ways to compensate for that loss -- through the use of cue cards, simplifying routines, or detailed lists. There is some debate about the role of cognitive rehabilitation, because there is little solid research to demonstrate its effectiveness.
