They can stop people from suffering from hallucinations and dilusions , they can help with depression and they also help people who suffer from mood swings. 4. Explain the importance of recording and reporting side effects/ adverse reactions to medication. It is very important to record any side affects to monitor the situation. If the side affects are reoccurring then staff must seek medical attention and request a medication review so that the service user stops experiencing them.
There could be some damage to the central nervous system but not very severe or the symptoms that Nick exhibits would be more severe. C. Diabetic neuropathies damage peripheral nerves. Which component of the reflex arc is most likely to be damaged in Nick’s situation? The component of the reflex arc that is most likely to be damaged in Nick’s situation would begin at the sensory neuron. Stimuli is still triggering the receptor but the information from the sensory neuron doesn’t continue the arc to the integrating centers to the motor neurons to the effectors which causes the absence of a reflex.
If it is genuine dementia it won't get better. There is medication to ease the symptoms but no cure. 2.1: A medical model for dementia would be when a persons memory is affected by a medical disease or a condition as a result of brain trauma which affects the area of the brain that is responsible for memory. Dementia is an umbrella term that covers a wide variety of ailments that affects a person ability to remember. It can range from a bump to the head to a medical disease that attacks the brains ability to function correctly, such as vascular dementia that alters blood flow to the brain.
The NF 1 and NF 2 tumors can be surgically removed. The NF 1 patient can go for a long period of time before another surgery is needed. The NF 2 surgeon will most likely have to remove the auditory nerve along with the tumors if they are present. The result following this surgery may be deafness. The doctor will then suggest the use of a hearing aid.
Assess if there are any lacerations on the scalp and obtain details from him, such as next of kin, allergies, current medications, etc. This way if the patient declines, information is provided to the HCP and treatment becomes easier (Lewis, Dirksen, Heitkemper, Bucher, & Camera, 2011, p. 1439-1445). 2. Two hours later, the client becomes less responsive to verbal stimuli, the blood pressure is elevated and the client is not able to move extremities against gravity or resistance. What should the nurse do next?
A head injury with roof of mouth fracture; the airway may inadvertently enter the cranial vault with this type fracture resulting in brain injury. (4) Complications. (a) The most common complication is minor tissue trauma (i.e. nosebleed); this however, is not sufficient indication to remove the
Patient: Date of Accident: Martin Moriera has recently had surgery on (body part) and is currently not working. The regimen of physical therapy prescribed below will help him return to work faster by strengthing the affected area during repetitive actions to prevent injury and re-occurrences and a safer working environment. (If he is already working you can still add in prevention of re-occurrences) Healing time can be different for more complex injuries –see if there were any extenuating circumstances (multiple fractures, multiple herniations) Review surgeon comments to justify length of therapy time needed. Correlate with: History of accident: Find out the mechanism of injury. Did the car roll over or did it crash at a high rate of
This complication may occur if the spinal cord's surrounding membrane is torn or punctured, or if it ruptures. In many cases this complication is noticed during the spinal-cord surgery and corrected right away. However, if it is not corrected during surgery, it can lead to serious complications such as a spinal infection or chronic headaches, and will need an additional spinal-cord surgery to be corrected. Nerve Damage Nerve damage is a possible complication of spinal-cord surgery. This complication can occur during the surgery and one or more nerves can be affected.
The pain and troubles will go away before you can start the rehab. One thing you can do is try to find a way to cope with the pain or limit the amount of pressure during the activity. Using ointments during games and practices will help with pain. There is no way to prevent this injury because most of the time it comes from another injury or happens only during an activity, but getting early diagnosis and treatment will help with a lot of the complications. A physical exam will reveal if you have compartment syndrome by having pain when a compartment is squeezed, will experience severe pain when you move the affected area (like moving the toes will hurt the lower leg), and will have swollen and shiny skin.
However in most cases patients with semantic dementia, suddenly begin to show symptoms, such as forgetting words for certain objects that are normally recognisable, difficulty in recognising people they don’t see regularly or simply forgetting the meaning of of words, faces and objects. These patients have no difficulty in remembering plans they made for the following day and what time they made those plans at, but rather semantic dementia is forgetting the meaning of things. In most cases it’s people between the age fifty and sixty five that get affected by semantic dementia, however unlike Alzheimer's disease which only affects elderly people, semantic dementia can affect the younger generation just as much as the older generation. When it comes to personality and behaviour traits, patients with semantic dementia tend to adapt a certain daily routine and become inflexible, which lead me to believe that people with semantic dementia could also show traits of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
