- Characteristics of Anterior cerebral Artery involvement
- LE involvement
- Behavior changes
Characteristics of Posterior Cerebral Artery involvement
- Hemiplegic side
- Pain & Temeperature
- Memory impairment
Characteristics of Veterbral cerebral artery involvement
- Sudden loss of unconscious
- Lack ability to speak
Characteristics of Middle cerebral involvement artery
- Most common in CVAs
- Flat affect and face involvement
- Impaired spatial relationship
- Impaired body awareness
What is the protocol when someone collapse due to Syncope
Have them in supine and elevate their feet. Check vital signs
Syncope is . .
Sudden loss of blood supply to the brain that leads to sudden loss of conscious . .
Vasovagal is. . .
Automatic nervous system response reflex to pain
A noticeable response when patient feels weak, nausea, pain , dizzy when the body can't take it no more.
What is the the theroy that Brunnstrom's belived in . . .
This principle was approached by initiating the use of synergy patterns during rehab.
Stage 1 of recovery is characterizerd by . . .
No volitional movement
Stage 2 of recovery is charaterized by . . . .
beginning of spasticity, limb being influenced by synergy
Stage 3 of recovery is characterized by . . .
- Spasticity increases with full synergy patterns.
- The limb is in full synergy voluntarily.
Stage 4 of recovery is characterized by . . .
Spasticity decreases and the limb is decreasing out of synergy. No longer facilitates synergy.
Stage 5 of recovery is characterized by . . .
Spasticity furthers decreases with some isolated muscles
Stage 6 or recovery is characterized by.. .
Isolated muscle with motor coordination
Stage 7 of recovery is. . . .
Normal motor function is restored.
Described Homolateral limb synkinesis
a flexion pattern of the involved upper extremity facilitates flexion of the involved lower extremity
- Whatever you resist on one side in LE will have same response in the same side UE.
- give an example. ..
The involved LE will abduct and adduct with applied resistance to the uninvolved LE in the same direction
Associated Reactions. . .
When applying resistance on the contralateral side, there's an overflow to the involved side.
- UE resistance response will be the SAME on other side
- LE (excpet add/abd) resistance response will be OPPOSITE on the other side.
Raising the involved UE above 100 degrees with elbow extension will produce extension and abduction of the fingers.
