Most events occurred among older women 66%, with mean age 76 years, and at home. 19 Kannus et al 9 1999, in a study carried out in Finland among individuals older than 50 years, reported a significant increase 284% in the number of injuries among older adults between the years of 1971 and 1995. Thus, our aim is to investigate the history of falls reported by elderly subjects, considering place of occurrence, causes, and consequences, and to describe any changes occurred in subjects’ daily lives, after the fall, including those related to functional capabilities: alterations in basic daily life activities BDLA and in instrumental daily life activities IDLA. Following the occurrence of fractures, consequences most reported were fear further falls 44% and others presented in Figure 2.

But at this stage of the litigation, Adams's breast cancer qualifies as a disability because it amounted to a physical impairment that substantially limited her in the major life activity of sexual relations. 2 To be an “individual with a disability” under the second prong of section 705 20 B, Adams must “ha a record of such an impairment.” “Such an impairment” refers to the first prong, that is, an “impairment which substantially limits one or more ․ major life activities,” 29 U.S.C.

... 2 The EEOC enforces Title I of the ADA, which generally limits the ability of employers to make disability-related inquiries and conduct medical examinations of applicants and employees. Because you do not employ peace officers, but instead prescribe the rules by which they are certified, your inquiry does not directly implicate Title I of the ADA. Based on the information you have provided, we believe that Title I of the ADA permits the Board to require law enforcement agencies to test peace officers for the illegal use of anabolic steroids and to report such use to the Board. Disability-Related Inquiries and Medical Examinations Under the ADA. Most questions about lawful drug use e.g., whether an applicant or employee currently is taking any prescription drugs or medications, or whether he has taken any such drugs in the past are disability-related inquiries.

Living With Disability: Life Stories From Family Members. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health ICF is a conceptual framework for classifying disability that goes beyond a medical or behavioral diagnosis. Using the ICF model, we can identify different kinds of disabilities and different levels of disability through both a medical and social lens. A key component of the ICF model is the understanding that disability is a function of health conditions and contextual factors. Furthermore, disability may be experienced in one of three domains: impairment problems with bodily structures or functioning of those structures, activity limitation decreased ability to perform specific actions, and participation restrictions decreased involvement in the daily happenings of life. There are numerous contextual factors considered by the ICF as having an influence on disability and health. Among these are environmental factors, such as social structures or systems.

Neill Roncker and my son Aaron both lived in Cincinnati Public School District. The Roncker case was important for many reasons: it showed the congressional intent of education in the least restrictive environment; the rights of parents to go due process; and the courts responsibility to hear the evidence in education cases as well as consider class action lawsuits. To avoid a class action case, Cincinnati Public Schools settled on Aaron s case after we won our first due process hearing.

... nsplant - ResearchGate. Article Outcomes of surgical repair of bile leaks and strictures after adult-to-adult living donor liver transplant. Impact Factor: 1.52. ABSTRACT We sought to determine factors that predict the successful surgical repair of biliary complications after adult living donor liver transplantation ALDLT. Operations were performed on 19 recipients for biliary complications. A total of 29 recipients had biliary complications, of which 19 had a surgical repair. Operations for strictures after ALDLT are more successful than operations for leaks.

(1/6812) Legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon--the first year's experience.

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: On October 27, 1997, Oregon legalized physician-assisted suicide. We collected data on all terminally ill Oregon residents who received prescriptions for lethal medications under the Oregon Death with Dignity Act and who died in 1998. The data were obtained from physicians' reports, death certificates, and interviews with physicians. We compared persons who took lethal medications prescribed under the act with those who died from similar illnesses but did not receive prescriptions for lethal medications. RESULTS: Information on 23 persons who received prescriptions for lethal medications was reported to the Oregon Health Division; 15 died after taking the lethal medications, 6 died from underlying illnesses, and 2 were alive as of January 1, 1999. The median age of the 15 patients who died after taking lethal medications was 69 years; 8 were male, and all 15 were white. Thirteen of the 15 patients had cancer. The case patients and controls were similar with regard to sex, race, urban or rural residence, level of education, health insurance coverage, and hospice enrollment. No case patients or controls expressed concern about the financial impact of their illness. One case patient and 15 controls expressed concern about inadequate control of pain (P=0.10). The case patients were more likely than the controls to have never married (P=0.04) and were more likely to be concerned about loss of autonomy due to illness (P=0.01) and loss of control of bodily functions (P=0.02). At death, 21 percent of the case patients and 84 percent of the controls were completely disabled (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: During the first year of legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon, the decision to request and use a prescription for lethal medication was associated with concern about loss of autonomy or control of bodily functions, not with fear of intractable pain or concern about financial loss. In addition, we found that the choice of physician-assisted suicide was not associated with level of education or health insurance coverage.  (+info)

(2/6812) Diabetic peripheral neuropathy and quality of life.

The quality of life (QOL) of 79 people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and 37 non-diabetic controls was assessed using the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP). The NHP consists of six domains assessing energy, sleep, pain, physical mobility, emotional reactions and social isolation. Symptomatic diabetic neuropathy was present in 41 of the patients. The neuropathy patients had significantly higher scores (impaired QOL) in 5/6 NHP domains than either the other diabetic patients (p < 0.01) or the non-diabetic (p < 0.001) controls. These were: emotional reaction, energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep. The diabetic patients without neuropathy also had significantly impaired QOL for 4/6 NHP domains compared with the non-diabetic control group (p < 0.05) (energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep). This quantification of the detrimental effect on QOL of diabetes, and in particular of chronic symptomatic peripheral diabetic neuropathy, emphasizes the need for further research into effective management of these patients.  (+info)

(3/6812) Teaching pedestrian skills to retarded persons: generalization from the classroom to the natural environment.

Little attention has been given to teaching adaptive community skills to retarded persons. In this study, five retarded male students were taught basic pedestrian skills in a classroom- Training was conducted on a model built to simulate city traffic conditions. Each subject was taught five specific skills involved in street crossing in sequence, viz. intersection recognition, pedestrian-light skills, traffic-light skills, and skills for two different stop-sign conditions. Before, during, and after training, subjects were tested on generalization probes on model and under actual city traffic conditions. Results of a multiple-baseline design acorss both subjects and behaviors indicated that after receiving classroom training on the skills, each subject exhibited appropriate pedestrian skills under city traffic conditions. In addition, training in some skills appeared to facilitate performance in skills not yet trained.  (+info)

(4/6812) The Sock Test for evaluating activity limitation in patients with musculoskeletal pain.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Assessment within rehabilitation often must reflect patients' perceived functional problems and provide information on whether these problems are caused by impairments of the musculoskeletal system. Such capabilities were examined in a new functional test, the Sock Test, simulating the activity of putting on a sock. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Intertester reliability was examined in 21 patients. Concurrent validity, responsiveness, and predictive validity were examined in a sample of 337 patients and in subgroups of this sample. RESULTS: Intertester reliability was acceptable. Sock Test scores were related to concurrent reports of activity limitation in dressing activities. Scores also reflected questionnaire-derived reports of problems in a broad range of activities of daily living and pain and were responsive to change over time. Increases in age and body mass index increased the likelihood of Sock Test scores indicating activity limitation. Pretest scores were predictive of perceived difficulties in dressing activities after 1 year. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: Sock Test scores reflect perceived activity limitations and restrictions of the musculoskeletal system.  (+info)

(5/6812) The psychometric properties of clinical rating scales used in multiple sclerosis.

OullII;l y Many clinical rating scales have been proposed to assess the impact of multiple sclerosis on patients, but only few have been evaluated formally for reliability, validity and responsiveness. We assessed the psychometric properties of five commonly used scales in multiple sclerosis, the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), the Scripps Neurological Rating Scale (SNRS), the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), the Ambulation Index (AI) and the Cambridge Multiple Sclerosis Basic Score (CAMBS). The score frequency distributions of all five scales were either bimodal (EDSS and AI) or severely skewed (SNRS, FIM and CAMBS). The reliability of each scale depended on the definition of 'agreement'. Inter-and intra-rater reliabilities were high when 'agreement' was considered to exist despite a difference of up to 1.0 EDSS point (two 0.5 steps), 13 SNRS points, 9 FIM points, 1 AI point and 1 point on the various CAMBS domains. The FIM, AI, and the relapse and progression domains of the CAMBS were sensitive to clinical change, but the EDSS and the SNRS were unresponsive. The validity of these scales as impairment (SNRS and EDSS) and disability (EDSS, FIM, AI and the disability domain of the CAMBS) measures was established. All scales correlated closely with other measures of handicap and quality of life. None of these scales satisfied the psychometric requirements of outcome measures completely, but each had some desirable properties. The SNRS and the EDSS were reliable and valid measures of impairment and disability, but they were unresponsive. The FIM was a reliable, valid and responsive measure of disability, but it is cumbersome to administer and has a limited content validity. The AI was a reliable and valid ambulation-related disability scale, but it was weakly responsive. The CAMBS was a reliable (all four domains) and responsive (relapse and progression domains) outcome measure, but had a limited validity (handicap domain). These psychometric properties should be considered when designing further clinical trials in multiple sclerosis.  (+info)

(6/6812) Efficacy and safety of rivastigmine in patients with Alzheimer's disease: international randomised controlled trial.

OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of rivastigmine on the core domains of Alzheimer's disease. DESIGN: Prospective, randomised, multicentre, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel group trial. Patients received either placebo, 1-4 mg/day (lower dose) rivastigmine, or 6-12 mg/day (higher dose) rivastigmine. Doses were increased in one of two fixed dose ranges (1-4 mg/day or 6-12 mg/day) over the first 12 weeks with a subsequent assessment period of 14 weeks. SETTING: 45 centres in Europe and North America. PARTICIPANTS: 725 patients with mild to moderately severe probable Alzheimer's disease diagnosed according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition, and the criteria of the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke and the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association. OUTCOME MEASURES: Cognitive subscale of the Alzheimer's disease assessment scale, rating on the clinician interview based impression of change incorporating caregiver information scale, and the progressive deterioration scale. RESULTS: At the end of the study cognitive function had deteriorated among those in the placebo group. Scores on the Alzheimer's disease assessment scale improved in patients in the higher dose group when compared with patients taking placebo (P<0.05). Significantly more patients in the higher dose group had improved by 4 points or more than had improved in the placebo group (24% (57/242) v 16% (39/238)). Global function as rated by the clinician interview scale had significantly improved among those in the higher dose group compared with those taking placebo (P<0.001), and significantly more patients in the higher dose group showed improvement than did in the placebo group (37% (80/219) v 20% (46/230)). Mean scores on the progressive deterioration scale improved from baseline in patients in the higher dose group but fell in the placebo group. Adverse events were predominantly gastrointestinal, of mild to moderate severity, transient, and occurred mainly during escalation of the dose. 23% (55/242) of those in the higher dose group, 7% (18/242) of those in the lower dose group, and 7% (16/239) of those in the placebo group discontinued treatment because of adverse events. CONCLUSIONS: Rivastigmine is well tolerated and effective. It improves cognition, participation in activities of daily living, and global evaluation ratings in patients with mild to moderately severe Alzheimer's disease. This is the first treatment to show compelling evidence of efficacy in a predominantly European population.  (+info)

(7/6812) Long-term functional status and quality of life after lower extremity revascularization.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess the longer term (up to 7 years) functional status and quality of life outcomes from lower extremity revascularization. METHODS: This study was designed as a cross-sectional telephone survey and chart review at the University of Minnesota Hospital. The subjects were patients who underwent their first lower extremity revascularization procedure or a primary amputation for vascular disease between January 1, 1989, and January 31, 1995, who had granted consent or had died. The main outcome measures were ability to walk, SF-36 physical function, SF-12, subsequent amputation, and death. RESULTS: The medical records for all 329 subjects were reviewed after the qualifying procedures for details of the primary procedure (62.6% arterial bypass graft, 36.8% angioplasty, 0.6% atherectomy), comorbidities (64% diabetics), severity of disease, and other vascular risk factors. All 166 patients who were living were surveyed by telephone between June and August 1996. At 7 years after the qualifying procedure, 73% of the patients who were alive still had the qualifying limb, although 63% of the patients had died. Overall, at the time of the follow-up examination (1 to 7.5 years after the qualifying procedure), 65% of the patients who were living were able to walk independently and 43% had little or no limitation in walking several blocks. In a multiple regression model, patients with diabetes and patients who were older were less likely to be able to walk at follow-up examination and had a worse functional status on the SF-36 and a lower physical health on the SF-12. Number of years since the procedure was not a predictor in any of the analyses. CONCLUSION: Although the long-term mortality rate is high in the population that undergoes lower limb revascularization, the survivors are likely to retain their limb over time and have good functional status.  (+info)

(8/6812) Infratentorial atrophy on magnetic resonance imaging and disability in multiple sclerosis.

Loss of tissue volume in the central nervous system may provide an index of fixed neurological dysfunction in multiple sclerosis. Recent magnetic resonance studies have shown a modest relationship between clinical disability rating scores and transverse sectional area of the cervical spinal cord. To explore further the relationship between atrophy and disability in multiple sclerosis, we estimated the volumes of infratentorial structures from MRIs in a cross-sectional study of 41 patients, 21 with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis and 20 with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. We used the Cavalieri method of modern design stereology with point counting to estimate the volume of brainstem, cerebellum and upper cervical spinal cord from three-dimensional MRIs acquired with an MPRAGE (Magnetization-prepared Rapid Acquisition Gradient Echo) sequence. The volume of the upper (C1-C3) cervical spinal cord was significantly correlated with a composite spinal cord score derived from the appropriate Functional Scale scores of the Expanded Disability Status Scale (r = -0.50, P < 0.01). The cerebellar (r = 0.49, P < 0.01) and brainstem (r = 0.34, P < 0.05) volumes correlated with the Scripp's Neurological Disability Rating Scale scores. The upper cervical cord volumes (r = -0.39, P < 0.01), but not the brainstem or cerebellar volumes, were significantly associated with disease duration. MRI-estimated structural volumes may provide a simple index of axonal and/or myelin loss, the presumed pathological substrates of irreversible impairment and disability in multiple sclerosis.  (+info)

What is the difference between personal and Instrumental ADLs?


i know that ADLs are activities of daily living, but what is the difference between personal and instrumental?
----------

The activities of daily living (or ADLs) are a way of evaluating a person's functional status i.e. how well the person functions on their own without assistance.  This form of assessment is particularly common in geriatric clinics/nursing homes.  As far as I know, the three categories are basic, instrumental and advanced.  I am not aware of any "personal" ADLs.  Descriptions of three categories I mentioned are found below.  Hope that helps!

The basic activities of daily living (BADLs) are self-care activities that are at the most basic level of functioning, such as bathing, dressing, toileting, transfers, continence, and feeding.  An older adult may be fully independent, need assistance, or be fully dependent in any or all of these activities.  The hierarchy for loss of BADL abilities is associated with increasing age and appears to be dependent on lower extremity strength, such that bathing, mobility, and toileting are lost before dressing and feeding, which rely on upper extremity strength. Of all of the BADL measures, dependence with regard to going to the toilet has been shown to be an indicator of overall performance and the need for overall higher levels of assistance.

The next higher level of functioning is known as the instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs). These activities are required for independent living within the community and include a set of more complex and demanding tasks. Older individuals living in the community who cannot perform IADLs may have difficulty functioning at home.

The advanced activities of daily living (AADLs) are those tasks that may be considered the "functional signature" of a well community-dwelling older individual. These tasks include voluntary social, occupational, or recreational activities. An older person who does not successfully participate in such activities may not be dysfunctional, but an assessment that uncovers significant involuntary loss of such function may be an important risk factor for further functional losses.


How long does it take to go back to normal activity following a breast lift with implants.?


I am not talking about strenuous exercise just activities of daily living.
----------

I was doing normal stuff after 3 days but took almost 2 weeks before I wasn't so tired and sore all the time.


Is there a law in the state of Oklahoma that requires doctors to treat pain adequately?


I  have fibromyalgia and every doctor I go to refuses to help me with my pain. This pain is completely life altering pain and I can no longer work and my daughter has to help me with all my activities of daily living. I know that pain medication will help me with some of this and make my life somewhat more produtive.
----------

I live in Oklahoma also.  I also have fibromyalgia.  These tips may be helpful:

1.  Keep a daily Pain Journal.  Use an image like this one http://www.spineuniverse.com/displaygraphic.php/336/fibromyalgia-UU.gif to indicate:
a.  Where you hurt that day.
b.  What the pain was on a scale of 1-10.
c.  What caused the pain.
d.  How long the pain lasted.
Keep one page per day.  Just saying, "I hurt all the time" isn't enough for most physicians.  They need to see a pattern.

2.  Find a rheumatologist.  Rheumatologists have more understanding of fibromyalgia than general practitioners.

3.  Keep moving.  Don't stop.  I often had to "exercise through the pain", even if the exercise was just walking around the house.

4.  Some fibromyalgia sufferers find that avoiding artificial sweeteners helps stop their pain.  If you use artificial sweetners, stop.  It may make a difference.

5.  The FDA has recently approved Lyrica http://www.lyrica.com/content/fibro_homepage.jsp?setShowOn=../content/fibro_homepage.jsp&setShowHighlightOn=../content/fibro_homepage.jsp for fibromyalgia pain.  You may want to read about it.

The right rheumatologist can make a difference.  If you have insurance, your insurer should have a list of rheumatologists, or you can ask your physician for a referral to one.

Although I still have occasional fibromyalgia pain, I consider myself a "recovered fibromyalgist"!


How many calories do we burn a day?


How many calories does the average person burn a day, doing normal activities of daily living? For example, simply talking, walking, sitting, breathing, eating, that kind of stuff. Any idea?
Thanks Got2B! Very Helpful! I never realized I burn that many calories doing lazy stuff! I also workout 3-4 days a week, burning about 300 additional calories, so it's good to know!
----------

The average woman, if she were to lay perfectly still in bed for one day, would burn about 1,200 Calories ... that would just cover the basic bodily functions ... so we really burn more when we are moving and such ... there are calorie calculators on line that you can use. Here is a link to one so you can calculate the calorie burn for your type of body:

the problem, intervention, and evaluation of outcome. example ms. gregg has a speech deficit (if this is for nursing school i highly reccomend the you look up the accompanying nursing diagnosis). a couple interventions would be for her to work with a speech therapist to improve speech ability and to provide a communication board with letters and symbols for her to use temporarily. after this has been in progress after a period of time, usually when medicare is going to stop paying, ms greggs progress will be evaluated to see if what is being done is effective or if other interventions need to be in place.


how could one be more faster in getting things done?


I'm just wondering why are some people very slow and some very fast in getting things done(activities of daily living). Some people are very slow in speech and in action. Some people are slow in reasoning/thinking; they tend to make mistakes in public but they are still bright at least they are making B's in school. Some of them they don't really want to be that way; they want to talk faster, think faster, take an action faster and give a reasonable response. Is there a way out for those individuals?
What can they do to improve?
----------

I learned to think on my feet faster by doing debate in high school.  You really learn to think fast in that activity, because you have to come up with good arguments for stuff, and it is a time limited activity.  I really recommend that! Makes you more logical, too.

A lot of people try to multi-task too much.  You should do only one thing at a time, as much as possible. You do two things at once - you will not even do a half way job at either of them. Research clearly shows this!

When you learn more about certain subjects, you naturally have better formed opinions & knowledge about them & will sound knowledgeable. So if you think a little slower, so what, no one will be able to tell when a subject comes up that you know about.

I personally keep quiet a lot.


A major concern for the patient, as is common for those learning to use lower limb prosthesis, is the fear?


A major concern for the patient, as is common for those learning to use lower limb prosthesis, is the fear of falling. (a) What arousal level might you expect to be associated with the fear of falling? (b) How might that influence the patient’s training? The performance activities of daily living? (C)What strategies will you incorporate into the patient’s rehabilitation program to reduce the fear of falling?
