  200. retinopathy

    *w/ diabetics
    • damage to small retinal blood vessels
    • bleeding can cause the retina to detach

    **Diabetics need tight glycemic control to prevent this
  201. retinal detachment
    • ret seperates from the choroid blood vessels, breaking them
    • this causes a lack of bld and O2, stops fuctioning, and loss of vision
    • caused by retinopathies, trauma, botched surgery, and inflammation
    • Pt. needs to lay PRONE after corrective surgery to keep retina in proper place
  202. age related macular degeneration
    • loss of central vision as well as visual acuity
    • **responsible for the majority of vision loss as we age
    • causes= smoking, poor nutrition, heredity
  203. problems with pressure in the middle ear
    • patent and/or obstructed Eustachian tube
    • acute otis medias= fluid in middle ear. can cause scaring and loss of hearing
  204. problems with adhesions between ossicles
    • adhesive otitis media
    • otosclerosis= hereditary, formation of more spongy bone
    •   =preventing proper vibration perception
    •   =***identified 1st by the whisper test
    •   = ***Causes Early hearing loss
  205. Meniere’s disease
    • It affects balance and hearing loss
    • don't know the cause
    • combination of vertigo, visual changes, headaches, tinnitus (constant noise)
    • try to keep their environment quiet b/c they have trouble with space perception and vertigo

    a chronic inner ear syndrome marked by attacks of vertigo, progressive deafness, tinnitus, and a sensation of fullness in the ears. The condition usually appears in persons between ages 40 and 50. The cause is unknown, but the disease process appears to destroy the hair cells within the cochlea." S/Sx include severe vertigo, tinnitus, and sensorineural hearing loss
  206. primary functions of the skeletal system 1-3
    • support tissue
    • support CNS structures
    • participate in formation of new blood cells
  207. shoulder and hip...
    appendicular or axial skeleton?
  208. bone remoldeling is controled by what 2 hormones?
    calcitonin and PTH
  209. osteoblasts
    **express surface receptors that bind hormones (Vit. D) to help build bone
  210. function of PTH in bone building/reabsorption
    Stimulate osteoclasts to release Ca+ from bone when serum levels drop to low
  211. Calcium and Phosphate have an inverse relationship
    Calcium and Phosphate have an inverse relationship
  212. actions of Vit. D on bone management
    • inc. intestinal Ca absorption
    • inc. renal secretion of P
    • inc. bone resorption and formation
  213. actions of Calcitonin
    • dec. blood calcium levels
    • ***dec. bone resorption
    • released by thyroid when Ca is high
    • inhibits osteoCLASTS
  214. synovial fluid
    • lubricates the joint
    • should be clear, pale-yellow
    • consistency of egg white
    • very slippery
    • should not clot nor have granules in it
  215. red bone marrow in adults
    • ribs
    • vertebrae
    • sternum
    • illium
  216. sprain vs strain
    sprain= injury to ligaments

    strains= injury to muscles
  217. treatment for sprain

    • Rest
    • Ice
    • Compression
    • Elevation
  218. sublexation
    partial joint dislocation
  219. how are fractures named?
    by their appearance on an X-Ray
  220. fractures:
    • T= single strait line, completely through the bone
    • O= single line, diagonal, completely through the bone
    • S= sign of abuse, twisted bone
    • C= shattered
    • S= a piece of the bone has come away (large piece, not shrapnel)
    • B= a chuck of bone, not completely through
    • I= bone pushes up against itself
  221. S & Sx of bone fractures
    • numbness
    • loss of function
    • muscle spasms
    • bruising
    • edema
    • pain
  222. purpose of treating a bone fracture
    preserve and restore function
  223. ** life-threatening complications of fractures
    compartment syndrome= increased pressure in a very limited space. inflam process cause increase swelling, crushing blood vessels, leading to necrosis

    yellow bone marrow can release fat as emboli into the blood stream
  224. osteoporosis

    important treatment
    • metabolic disorder with rate of bone resorption accelerates while bone deposition decreases
    • loss of bone mass
    • associated with lazy lifestyle

    Tx= weight baring exercise to prevent muscle atrophy and enhance osteoblasts
  225. osteomalacia
    • **defective mineralization w/o loss of bone matrix
    • *Doesn't cause breakdown like porosis
    • "bone softening"
    • Calcium and/or phosphate deficiency will cause this
    • Diet is important
  226. rheumatoid arthritis
    • Autoimmune disorder
    • *systemic, chronic, progressive, autoimmune disease that involves inflamm of synovial membrane
    • leads to Pannus (abnormal joints)
    • all major joints of the body are involved, bilaterally
  227. Lupus (SLE)
    • systemic inflammation
    • autoimmune disease
    • skin lesions (butterfly rash)
  228. why is SLE associate with skeletal system?
    • It can cause Arthralgia= pain in joint and/or muscles
    •  = ***1st symptoms of SLE is joint/muscle pain


    Arthritis= inflammation

    Pt. with SLE can have both
  229. osteoarthritis
    • most common form of arthritis
    • "wear and tear"
    • *unilateral
    • from injury to weight baring joints
    • starts with destruction of cartilage

    *NOT systemic like rheumatoid arthritis
  230. Epidermis includes what 3 things?
    • hair
    • nails
    • glands
  231. Wheal
    • like mosqutio bite
    • contained borders, raised area on skin
    • can be red, but is not always red
  232. pustule
    • filled with pus
    • acne, impetigo
  233. papule
    palpable solid mass
  234. nodule
    deeper and firmer than papule
  235. how contagious is impetigo?
    still very contagious no matter how long they are on antibiotics
  236. 3 A's of shingles
    • Anti-depressants
    • Antivirals
    • Analgesics 
  237. 1st degree burn
    • superficial partial thickness burn
    • pink, NO blisters
    • heal in 3-10 days with no intervention
  238. 2nd degree burn
    • partial thickness burn affecting epidermis and dermis
    • red, painful, moist, formed Blisters
    • important to keep blisters intact

    can also be full-thickness burn
  239. 3rd degree burn
    full thickness that continues into the subQ, muscles, bone, and bld vessels

    NO pain in the area
  240. sun burn is what classification?
    can be 1st and 2nd
  241. complications of burn
    • depend on the severity and level of burn
    • can cause hypovolemia

    IV fluids can lead to hypervolemia

    ****most severe complications of 3rd degree burn is decrease in circulating bld volume from plasma seepage into interstitial spaces from the damaged bld vessels which result in a systemic vasoconstriction
  242. 4 things that contribute to pressure ulcers
    • pressure
    • shear= capillaries ripping away for the skin (underlying)
    • friction= like rug burn
    • moisture
  243. stage 4 ulcers will NEVER upgrade to a 3,2, or 1 even when it heals
    stage 4 ulcers will NEVER upgrade to a 3,2, or 1 even when it heals
