    full thickness burn- third degree, involves epidermis and dermis: hair follicles, sweat glands, and nerve endings; appears white, waxy, leathery, and non-elastic; sensation is absent; requires graft; hypertrophic scar; healing can take months

    fourth degree burn:  involves, fat, muscles and bone; elctircal burn-destruction of nerve along pathway

    Rule of nines is a method of assessing burn wound size- 9% head, 9% each arm, 36% trunk, 1 % peri area, 18% each LE
  64. OT burn eval and interventions
    • superfical partial thickness burns
    • Occupational profile; ROM 72 hours post-op; sensation when wounds are healed; strength when wounds are healed; ADL and meaningful role activities
    • intervention- wound debridement, gentle AROM and PROM to tolerance, edema control splinting if necessary, ADL
    • DEep partial thickness burns - same as partial thickness and then add strengthening when wounds are healed
    • Full thickness- same interventions; be aware of grafts
  65. Avoid positions of comfort to prevent contractures
  66. hand splints for burns
    position of anti-deformity- slight extension of the wrist with MCP joints flexed and IP joints extended, thumb abducted and extended

    if burns to volar surface of the hand, flexion contractures-- use palmar extension splint, slight wrist extension with MCP joints in neutral/slight extension, IP and thumb the same

    web-space burn- c-splint
  67. hypertropic scar
    • most common with deep second and third degree burns
    • appear 6-8 weeks after wound closure
    • one to two years to matures
    • compression garment should be worn 24 hours daily- applied when wounds are healed.
    • ROM , skin care, ADL, role activities, and patient/family education
  68. pain
    personal sensation of hurt that can significantly affect an individuals quality of life

    Acute- has a recent onset and usually lasts for a short duration

    chronic- pain is of a long duration and can lead to depression
  69. myofascial pain syndrome
    persistent deep aching pains in muscle, non articular in origin; trigger points
  70. fibromyalgia syndrome
    • pain and fatigue
    • widespread pain accompanied by tenderness of muscles and adgacent soft tissues
    • nonarticular rheumatic disease of unknown origin
  71. low back pain
    • most common work related injury
    • lumbar lordosis location
    • etiology- poor posture, repetitive bending, heavy lifting, sleeping with poor posture
    • stmptoms- pain, diffictuly with self-care activities and other role actiities, difficulty sleeping
  72. Assessment of pain
    • location- localized vs diffuse
    • intensity of pain - NRS 0-10 pain, time of day more pain
    • onset and duration- gradual vs sudden
    • description of the pain, sharp throbbing, burning shooting
  73. Intervention
    • pysical agent modalities and massage in prep for functional activities
    • teach proper positioning techniques
    • splint in resting position
    • Gentle ROM
    • teach relaxation exercises
    • correct standing and seating posture
    • modify activities and provide AT
    • provide alternative exercise programs
    • pain management
