Peripheral Nervous System Disorders Diagnosis and Treatment
The peripheral nervous system is the part of the nervous system that excludes or is outside of the brain and the spinal cord. We take care of patients that have disorders that affect the motor neurons, which live in the spinal cord the peripheral nerves that extend out into the arms and legs as well as the muscles and the connection between the nerves and the muscles. Some of the disorders that a nerve and muscle a disease specialist will evaluate and develop care plans for include muscle disorders such as muscular dystrophy,.
Polymyositis, dermatomyositis, peripheral neuropathies such as Charcot Marie Tooth disease or hereditary neuropathy and as well as the neuromuscular junction disorders such as myasthenia gravis. Some symptoms that can be associated with the peripheral nervous system include generalized weakness, fatigue, numbness, tingling, sometimes pain can be caused by disorders of the peripheral nerve. The evaluation of a patient with a possible peripheral nervous system disorder first begins with the very careful history to understand how the symptoms started and how they affect the patient. From the history we extend to the physical exam,.
Autonomic Dysreflexia and Preeclampsia
Autonomic dysreflexia is a medical response to an autonomic imbalance in the spinal cord nervous system. Well people who have injuries above T6, it's very important to know the difference between autonomic dysreflexia and preeclampsia, because they both have the same symptoms, but the treatment is very different. For autonomic dysreflexia, we want to treat the dysreflexia and maintain the pregnancy till the end. Preeclampsia, there's risk to the child and there's going to be a tendency to deliver the baby. But if you show up in an emergency room, the symptoms are very close to the same, so it's important for somebody.
24.5 Complications of Diabetes for Older Adults Diabetes 5 of 6
Hi, I'm Mary Alexander from Home Instead Senior Care, and today, I'm talking about the health complications associated with diabetes. Having diabetes increases your risk for developing many serious health problems. Let's talk about a few. People with diabetes are at an increased risk for eye complications, particularly disorders of the retina, and have a higher risk of blindness. The National Institute of Health has found that hearing loss is twice as common in people with diabetes. The most common type is called sensory neural hearing loss. It usually can't be cured, but most cases can be treated with hearing aids. Foot problems are very.
Common in people with diabetes. Nerve damage, called neuropathy, causes pain, but can also lesson your ability to feel pain, heat, and cold, resulting in foot injuries. Poor circulation, very dry skin, callouses, and ulcers on your feet are complications of diabetes. If neglected, ulcers can result in infections, which can result in the loss of the limb. Another complication is high blood pressure. This raises your risk for heart attack, stroke, eye problems, and kidney disease. High blood sugar can also overwork the kidneys, causing them to stop working properly. Once kidneys fail, replacement therapy via dialysis or.
SudoscanPlus demonstration tutorial
SUDOSCAN Early detection of diabetes complications. SUDOSCAN is a CE certified device that measures sweat gland function as an indicator for small fiber peripheral neuropathy in diabetic patients The test does not require specific training, preparation or certification and only takes two minutes to perform. The patient is asked to put his hands and feet on the stainless steel electrode plates. They must be centered on the plate for maximum skin to electrode contact. Movement must be avoided and the subject must not be touched during the scan. The patient's name or ID, age,.
Gender, weight and height are typed into the analyzer. The test starts when the scan button is pressed. As the test starts the electrodes light up and a small direct current of less than four volts is applied to both the hand and foot electrodes. The chloride ions from the sweat glands are attracted to the stainless steel plates. The chloride conductance measured acts as a biomarker to assess sweat function in relation to small nerve structure. SUDOSCAN can distinguish between asymmetric or symmetric small nerve fibre damage by swapping electrode polarity during scanning. Thus SUDOSCAN.
Distinguishes between unilateral nerve damage caused by bilateral peripheral polyneuropathy or autonomic dysfunction. A double beep indicates that the scan is complete. The patient report is automatically generated. The measured conductances are expressed in micro siemens and a cardiovascular neuropathy risk score is calculated and expressed in percentage value. A conductance of sixty or greater indicates good sweat function and no peripheral neuropathy. A conductance of between fourty and sixty indicates moderates sweat function and moderate neuropathy. A conductance of fourty or less indicates poor sweat function and peripheral neuropathy. A cardiovascular neuropathy risk score that is lower than twenty five percent.
Indicates low risk. A score between twenty five and fifty percent indicates moderate risk. A score of fifty percent or higher indicates high risk. the amount of observed asymmetry is an indicator of the kind of autonomic dysfunction. Symmetrical peripheral neuropathy would be consistent with diabetic complication. Followup schedules are determined by the patient's SUDOSCAN results and observed asymmetry between left and right sides. A patient with a poor sweat function and or high asymetry is encouraged to retest in the near future. A patient with good sweat function and low asymmetry.
