    • threats to self security or self esteem- unmet expectations, unmet needs for status and prestige, anticipated disapproval from SO, inability to gain or reinforce self respect, suddent unexpected sever treat to sense of security, self esteem, and well-being, guilt, discrepancies with self identity/behavior
  47. Responses to anxiety
    constructive- problem solving (coping behaviors)destructive- destructive- defense mechanisms (never solve problem, reemerges again and again
  48. Defense mechanisms
    • almost all are generated unconsciously
    • not aware of source of behaviors that are troubling
    • can contribute to problems in functioning

    when defense reduces uncomfortable anxiety it reinforces the use of the mechanism
  49. denial
    • defense mechanism
    • remove experience or feeling form some upsetting
    • event/ from consciousness and pretend its not there
    • EX: sleep

    • EX: i like that class, then not show up... do the
    • opposite of what you say
  53. displacement
    • defense mechanism
    • displace feelings and fears to an object symbolic of
    • one that is feared
    • EX:"I hate this textboo!" or take it out
    • on people who are unrelated to the situation
  54. rationalization
    • defense mechanism
    • replacing acceptable reasons for treatening true

    • secretes anticoagulation substance
  59. fibrinolysis
    automatic, programmed time clock break down of clot to facilite blood flow (7-10 days)

    form and stay put for healing to take place and then disappeare to allow blood flow
  60. sequence of events following vascular damage
    • immedate vasoconstriction/vasospasm- narrows thing very briefly
    • platelete are first responders to plug hole ( anything more than minor hole coagulation cascades happen next)
    • intrinsic pathway- triggered by inside of vessel
    • extrinsic pathway- stimulated by tissue thromboplastim (in tissues)
    • final common pathway- fibrin thread across platelet plug

    fibrinolysis 7-10 days after
  61. where are plasma proteins made (albumin)
    in the liver-- liver patients bleed!
  62. Fibrin degradation products
    • FDPs- consequence of clot breakdown
    • D-dimer lab test
    • increase=excessive FDP=increase fibrinolysis (clot breakdown)
    • could be dangerous-- bleeding (DIC)
  63. partial thromboplastin time (PTT/aPTT)
    • measures the intrinsic and final common pathways
    • monitors coagulation in persons thaking th e coagulation med Haparin
    • mean of 60 seconds-- rarely used

    • normal mean= 12 seconds

    a lot of variability in lots (maniufacturer) look at INR
  66. International normalized ratio (INR)
    • clinical decisions better and more often made on INR
    • normal is 1
    • extrinsic pathway****

    • lower gi bleed
  74. melena
    • black tarry
    • digested blood, upper gi bleed
  75. hematuria
    blood in the urine
  76. Thrombocytopenia, causes
    platelet counts <140,000

    • <50,000 bleeding potential
    • <20,000 spon bleeding

    • cause:
    • defective platelet production
    • desordered platelet distribution
    • acclerated platelet destruction (DIC)
  77. Qualitiative platelet dysfunction
    • enought platelets but htey dont operate normally
    • congenital
    • acquired- meds-- inhibits ADP, and related to uremia- BU*N and creat increased- dont behave normally in dirty blood
  78. quantatitive platelets dysfunction
    • thrombocytosis >340,000
    • primary= myeloproliferative disorder of precursor cell
