Neostigmine, unlike PHYSOSTIGMINE, does not cross the blood-brain barrier.Molecular Sequence Data: Descriptions of specific amino acid, carbohydrate, or nucleotide sequences which have appeared in the published literature and/or are deposited in and maintained by databanks such as GENBANK, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), or other sequence repositories.Consciousness: Sense of awareness of self and of the environment.Flocculation: The aggregation of suspended solids into larger clumps.Myocardial Infarction: NECROSIS of the MYOCARDIUM caused by an obstruction of the blood supply to the heart (CORONARY CIRCULATION).Chronic Disease: Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care. (Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry: A microanalytical technique combining mass spectrometry and gas chromatography for the qualitative as well as quantitative determinations of compounds.RNA, Messenger: RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.Liver: A large lobed glandular organ in the abdomen of vertebrates that is responsible for detoxification, metabolism, synthesis and storage of various substances.Models, Animal: Non-human animals, selected because of specific characteristics, for use in experimental research, teaching, or testing.Hematopoietic Stem Cells: Progenitor cells from which all blood cells derive.Stress, Physiological: The unfavorable effect of environmental factors (stressors) on the physiological functions of an organism. Prolonged unresolved physiological stress can affect HOMEOSTASIS of the organism, and may lead to damaging or pathological conditions.Immunohistochemistry: Histochemical localization of immunoreactive substances using labeled antibodies as reagents.Guinea Pigs: A common name used for the genus Cavia. The most common species is Cavia porcellus which is the domesticated guinea pig used for pets and biomedical research.Sodium Channels: Ion channels that specifically allow the passage of SODIUM ions. A variety of specific sodium channel subtypes are involved in serving specialized functions such as neuronal signaling, CARDIAC MUSCLE contraction, and KIDNEY function.Patch-Clamp Techniques: An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.Fluorescent Dyes: Agents that emit light after excitation by light. The wave length of the emitted light is usually longer than that of the incident light. Fluorochromes are substances that cause fluorescence in other substances, i.e., dyes used to mark or label other compounds with fluorescent tags.Neural Conduction: The propagation of the NERVE IMPULSE along the nerve away from the site of an excitation stimulus.Glucose: A primary source of energy for living organisms.

They can be of two types, competitive, stabilizing blockers (NEUROMUSCULAR NONDEPOLARIZING AGENTS) or noncompetitive, depolarizing agents (NEUROMUSCULAR DEPOLARIZING AGENTS). Both prevent acetylcholine from triggering the muscle contraction and they are used as anesthesia adjuvants, as relaxants during electroshock, in convulsive states, etc.Electrocardiography: Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.Cattle: Domesticated bovine animals of the genus Bos, usually kept on a farm or ranch and used for the production of meat or dairy products or for heavy labor.Motor Cortex: Area of the FRONTAL LOBE concerned with primary motor control located in the dorsal PRECENTRAL GYRUS immediately anterior to the central sulcus. It is comprised of three areas: the primary motor cortex located on the anterior paracentral lobule on the medial surface of the brain; the premotor cortex located anterior to the primary motor cortex; and the supplementary motor area located on the midline surface of the hemisphere anterior to the primary motor cortex.
Complete compensation in skilled reaching success with associated impairments in limb synergies, after dorsal column lesion in the rat. (1/6440)Each of the dorsal columns of the rat spinal cord conveys primary sensory information, by way of the medullary dorsal column nucleus, to the ventrobasal thalamus on the contralateral side; thus the dorsal columns are an important source of neural input to the sensorimotor cortex. Damage to the dorsal columns causes impairments in synergistic proximal or whole-body movements in cats and distal limb impairments in primates, particularly in multiarticulated finger movements and tactile foviation while handling objects, but the behavioral effects of afferent fiber lesions in the dorsal columns of rodents have not been described. Female Long-Evans rats were trained to reach with a forelimb for food pellets and subsequently received lesions of the dorsomedial spinal cord at the C2 level, ipsilateral to their preferred limb. Reaching success completely recovered within a few days of dorsal column lesion. Nevertheless, a detailed analysis of high-speed video recordings revealed that rotatory limb movements (aiming, pronation, supination, etc.) were irreversibly impaired. Compensation was achieved with whole-body and alternate limb movements. These results indicate the following: (1) in the absence of the dorsal columns, other sensorimotor pathways support endpoint success in reaching; (2) sensory input conveyed by the dorsal columns is important for both proximal and distal limb movements used for skilled reaching; and (3) detailed behavioral analyses in addition to endpoint measures are necessary to completely describe the effects of dorsal column lesions.

Long-term recovery of diaphragm strength in neuralgic amyotrophy. (2/6440)Diaphragm paralysis is a recognized complication of neuralgic amyotrophy that causes severe dyspnoea. Although recovery of strength in the arm muscles, when affected, is common, there are little data on recovery of diaphragm function. This study, therefore, re-assessed diaphragm strength in cases of bilateral diaphragm paralysis due to neuralgic amyotrophy that had previously been diagnosed at the authors institutions. Fourteen patients were recalled between 2 and 11 yrs after the original diagnosis. Respiratory muscle and diaphragm strength were measured by volitional manoeuvres as maximal inspiratory pressure and sniff transdiaphragmatic pressure. Cervical magnetic phrenic nerve stimulation was used to give a nonvolitional measure of diaphragm strength: twitch transdiaphragmatic pressure. Only two patients remained severely breathless. Ten of the 14 patients had evidence of some recovery of diaphragm strength, in seven cases to within 50% of the lower limit of normal. The rate of recovery was variable: one patient had some recovery after 2 yrs, and the rest took 3 yrs or more. In conclusion, in most patients with diaphragm paralysis due to neuralgic amyotrophy, some recovery of the diaphragm strength occurs, but the rate of recovery may be slow. (+info)
Preconditioning in immature rabbit hearts: role of KATP channels. (3/6440)BACKGROUND: The protective effects of ischemic preconditioning have been shown to occur in adult hearts of all species studied. We determined whether immature hearts normoxic or chronically hypoxic from birth could be preconditioned, the time window or memory of the cardioprotective effect, and the involvement of the KATP channel. METHODS AND RESULTS: Isolated immature rabbit hearts (7 to 10 days old) were subjected to 0, 1, or 3 cycles of preconditioning consisting of 5 minutes of global ischemia plus 10 minutes of reperfusion. This was followed by 30 minutes of global ischemia and 35 minutes of reperfusion. Normoxic hearts (FIO2=0.21) subjected to 1 cycle of preconditioning recovered 70+/-7% of left ventricular developed pressure compared with 43+/-8% recovery in nonpreconditioned controls. Three cycles of preconditioning did not result in additional recovery (63+/-8%). Hearts from rabbits raised from birth in hypoxic conditions (FIO2=0.12) and subjected to 1 and 3 preconditioning cycles did not show increased recovery (68+/-8% and 65+/-5%) compared with nonpreconditioned hypoxic controls (63+/-9%), although the recovery was greater in chronically hypoxic hearts than in age-matched normoxic controls. Increasing the recovery period after the preconditioning stimulus from 10 to 30 minutes resulted in a loss of cardioprotection. Pretreatment of normoxic hearts for 30 minutes with the KATP channel blocker 5-hydroxydecanoate (300 micromol/L) completely abolished preconditioning (70+/-7% to 35+/-9%) but had no effect on nonpreconditioned hearts (40+/-8%). CONCLUSIONS: Immature hearts normoxic from birth can be preconditioned, whereas immature hearts hypoxic from birth cannot. Preconditioning in normoxic immature hearts is associated with activation of the KATP channel. (+info)
Regional differences in the recovery course of tachycardia-induced changes of atrial electrophysiological properties. (4/6440)BACKGROUND: Regional differences in recovery of tachycardia-induced changes of atrial electrophysiological properties have not been well studied. METHODS AND RESULTS: In the control group (5 dogs), atrial effective refractory period (AERP) and inducibility of atrial fibrillation (AF) were assessed before and every 4 hours for 48 hours after complete atrioventricular junction (AVJ) ablation with 8-week VVI pacing. In experimental group 1 (15 dogs), AERP and inducibility of AF were assessed before and after complete AVJ ablation with 8-week rapid right atrial (RA) pacing (780 bpm) and VVI pacing. In experimental group 2 (7 dogs), AERP and inducibility of AF were assessed before and after 8-week rapid left atrial (LA) pacing and VVI pacing. AERP and inducibility and duration of AF were obtained from 7 epicardial sites. In the control group, atrial electrophysiological properties obtained immediately and during 48-hour measurements after pacing did not show any change. In the 2 experimental groups, recovery of atrial electrophysiological properties included a progressive recovery of AERP shortening, recovery of AERP maladaptation, and decrease of duration and episodes of reinduced AF. However, recovery of shortening and maladaptation of AERP and inducibility of AF was slower at the LA than at the RA and Bachmann's bundle. CONCLUSIONS: The LA had a slower recovery of tachycardia-induced changes of atrial electrophysiological properties, and this might play a critical role in initiation of AF. (+info)
Case report. Recovery of shoulder movement in patients with complete axillary nerve palsy. (5/6440)Classical anatomical teaching suggests that the deltoid muscle is the main abductor of the shoulder. We present three cases of proven complete paralysis of the deltoid with an almost full range of movement of the shoulder owing to the compensatory action of accessory muscles. The mechanisms by which this occurs are described. (+info)
Resolution of third nerve paresis after endovascular management of aneurysms of the posterior communicating artery. (6/6440)The effect of endovascular treatment on the recovery of neural function in patients with third nerve palsy caused by an aneurysm of the posterior communicating artery is poorly documented. We report three cases in which third nerve paresis resolved completely within 2 to 3 weeks of endovascular occlusion of a posterior communicating artery aneurysm. (+info)
The relationship between the functional abilities of patients with cervical spinal cord injury and the severity of damage revealed by MR imaging. (7/6440)BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The appearance of the damaged spinal cord after injury correlates with initial neurologic deficit, as determined by the American Spinal Injury Association grade and manual muscle test score, as well as with recovery, as assessed by manual muscle test scores. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the presence of spinal cord hemorrhage and the size and location of spinal cord edema on MR images is predictive of functional recovery in survivors of cervical spinal cord injury (SCI). METHODS: The degree of damage to the cervical spinal cord was measured on the MR images of 49 patients who underwent imaging within 72 hours of sustaining SCI. The effects of hemorrhage and length/location of edema on changes in the value of the motor scale of the functional independence measure (FIM) were assessed on admission to and discharge from rehabilitation. RESULTS: Patients without spinal cord hemorrhage had significant improvement in self-care and mobility scores compared with patients with hemorrhage. There was no significant effect of spinal cord hemorrhage on changes in locomotion and sphincter control scores. The rostral limit of edema positively correlated with admission and discharge self-care scores and with admission mobility and locomotion scores. Edema length had a negative correlation with all FIM scales at admission and discharge. CONCLUSION: The imaging characteristics of cervical SCI (hemorrhage and edema) are related to levels of physical recovery as determined by the FIM scale. Imaging factors that correlate with poor functional recovery are hemorrhage, long segments of edema, and high cervical locations. (+info)
Functional status outcomes for assessment of quality in long-term care. (8/6440)OBJECTIVE: Although decline in functional status has been recommended as a quality indicator in long-term care, studies examining its use provide no consensus on which definition of functional status outcome is the most appropriate to use for quality assessment. We examined whether different definitions of decline in functional status affect judgments of quality of care provided in Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) long-term care facilities. METHODS: Six measures of functional status outcome that are prominent in the literature were considered. The sample consisted of 15 409 individuals who resided in VA long-term care facilities at any time from 4/1/95 to 10/1/95. Activities of daily living variables were used to generate measures of functional status. Differences between residents' baseline and semi-annual assessments were considered and facility performance using the various definitions of functional status were described. RESULTS: The percentage of residents seen as declining in functional status ranged from 7.7% to 31.5%, depending upon the definition applied. The definition of functional status also affected rankings, z-scores, and 'outlier' status for facilities. CONCLUSION: Judgments of facility performance are sensitive to how outcome measures are defined. Careful selection of an appropriate definition of functional status outcome is needed when assessing quality in long-term care. (+info)

AU - Hing, Wayne A. AU - Simas, Vini P. AU - Furness, James W. PY - 2020/8/27. Y1 - 2020/8/27. N2 - BACKGROUND: The introduction of enhanced recovery pathways has demonstrated both patient and organisational benefits. However, enhanced recovery pathways implemented for total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) vary between health-care organisations, as do their measures of success, particularly patient-related outcomes. Despite inpatient functional recovery being essential for safe and timely hospital discharge, there is currently no gold standard method for its assessment, and the research undertaken to establish prognostic factors is limited. This study aimed to identify prognostic factors and subsequently develop prognostic models for inpatient functional recovery following ...

In this prospective study of a large cohort of patients with primary THA, we found that after adjusting for important predictors, patients with OA had significantly better functional outcomes compared to those with RA/inflammatory arthritis at two-year follow-up. Results were notable for overall ADL limitation and key ADLs. Pain outcomes were not significantly different for OA versus RA. We also found that patients with AVN experienced better ADL outcome at two years compared to RA patients. In contrast, patients with AVN reported worse pain outcomes at five years compared to those with RA. Several findings in our study are of interest and merit further discussion.. One of the main findings of our study was that patients with OA had significantly better functional outcomes compared to those with RA at the two-year follow-up, as indicated by lower odds of overall moderate-severe ADL limitation. These findings were confirmed for patients younger and older than 65 years. To our knowledge, this is ...

HDAC6 dysfunction contributes to impaired maturation of adult neurogenesis in vivo: vital role on functional recovery after...
Promoting post-stroke neurogenesis has long been proposed to be a therapeutic strategy for the enhancement of functional recovery after cerebral ischemic stroke. Despite numerous approaches have been widely reported the proliferation or differentiation of the neurogenic population therapeutic strategies by targeting adult neurogenesis not yet to be successfully clarified in clinical settings. Here, we hypothesized that alterations in microenvironment of the ischemic brain might impede the functional maturation of adult newly generated neurons that limits functional recovery after stroke. The in vivo retroviral based labeling model was applied to directly birth-date and trace the maturation process of adult newly generating neurons after hypoxic challenge. A rehabilitation therapy procedure was adopted through the combination of task-specific motor rehabilitating training with environmental enrichment to promote functional recovery after stroke. In addition, a pharmacological or genetic suppression of

An exploration of possible mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of enriched rehabilitation on post-stroke recovery of...
A combination of enriched environment and daily reaching therapy (i.e. enriched rehabilitation) enhances functional recovery following focal ischemia in rats. However, the mechanisms contributing to recovery, and potentially critical influence of timing of rehabilitation, remain unclear. -- Enriched rehabilitation is especially effective when initiated early, however the mechanisms underlying this critical time window have not been determined. Chapter 2 examined the effects of early rehabilitation on neuronal activation (FosB/∆FosB), delayed cell death (Fluoro Jade C) and inflammation (ED-1) following endothelin-1 induced focal ischemia. Enriched rehabilitation increased the activity of perilesional cortex in the early post-stroke treatment period. This increased activity likely contributes to the neuroplastic changes and functional recovery observed with extended periods of rehabilitation. Importantly, enriched environment alone did not lead to enhanced activity suggesting that task-specific ...

One of the worries with people choosing solo recovery can be that they are suffering from terminal uniqueness. This is where the individual becomes convinced that the situation they are facing is unlike anything that other people have faced. People suffering from terminal uniqueness will therefore not consider that the solutions that work for other people will be appropriate for them. This means that they put their recovery at risk because they are not prepared to make use of what is available. This type of thinking often stems from ignorance and arrogance. It can lead people right back into the midst of addiction. This type of thinking is also associated with the addictive personality.. ...

Defining recovery - ED Bites
Recovery is also about accepting the ups and downs that inevitably come with life and recovery and learning how to cope with them healthily. Learning how to ask for support. Learning that recovery is NOT perfect. And honestly it wouldnt get us anywhere if it was. I think when we have slips or lapses it gives us the chance to learn new things and grow. I was doing really well for years and all of the sudden had a relapse. It took awhile to figure it out but I was able to work on two things I had never been in a place to work on before then. I could have lived my whole life thinking I was totally fine and in perfect or close to perfect recovery. But honestly I am so glad I got the chance to work on those things, because now I am in an even higher level of recovery than I was before. The only way to move up is to be able to deal with and use the downs :) our ED will be a warning system for when something is wrong at least for awhile.

Staying Ahead of the Pain Curve for a Faster, Better Recovery - The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care
At The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, we are very sensitive to our patients concerns about post-operative pain. Weve learned that patients have less pain and get well faster when they know what to expect after surgery. We believe a well-informed patient has a better recovery.. Our focus is to stay ahead of the pain curve by eliminating pain before it starts. We preempt and diminish pain by using a multi-modal approach with less emphasis on narcotics than traditional treatments. With our approach, weve been able to avoid many of the complications which plague patients post-operatively, including nausea, vomiting, constipation and confusion.. Our patients are given IV Tylenol, alternating with an IV NSAID (called Toradol) and a steroid before and after surgery, while emphasizing excellent hydration. During surgery, the tissues around the hip or knee are infiltrated with a pain-management "cocktail," which includes a combination of a local anesthetic, Toradol, and morphine.. A new medication, ...

Abstract 9819: The Significance of Early Recovery of the ST Segment Depression in the Recovery Period | Circulation
Background Persistence of ST segment depression in recovery signifies a strongly positive ETT, predictive of more ischemia and underlying CAD. It is unclear if early recovery of the ST segment portends a similar prognosis. We sought to determine if persistence of horizontal / down-sloping ST depression into recovery correlates with CAD burden based on myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). Methods Retrospective analysis of men and women referred for exercise MPI testing was performed. Normal groups were defined as negative ETT (,1mm of ST depression). Those with positive ECG tests were further stratified based on the ST segment at 1 min in recovery. Persistence group was those with ,1mm while the Early Recovery group ,1mm. Measured MPI variables were summed stress scores (SSS) and high-risk MPI findings. Analysis of variance was used to compare SSS among groups. To assess whether SSS of Early Recovery is no worse than the Normal group, a one-sided 95% confidence limit was calculated for the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Magnesium dietary manipulation and recovery of function following controlled cortical damage in the rat. AU - Hoane, Michael R.. AU - Gilbert, David R.. AU - Barbre, Adrianne B.. AU - Harrison, Stacy A.. PY - 2008/3/1. Y1 - 2008/3/1. N2 - Previous research has shown that dietary magnesium (Mg2+) deficiency prior to injury worsens recovery of function and that systemic administration of Mg2+ pre or post-injury significantly improves functional recovery. The purpose of the present study was to determine if manipulations in dietary Mg2+ would alter functional recovery following unilateral cortical injuries. Two weeks prior to injury, rats were placed on a customized diet enriched with Mg2+, deficient in Mg 2+, or on a standard Mg2+ diet. Rats were then prepared with unilateral cortical contusion injuries (CCI) of the sensorimotor cortex. Two days following CCI, rats were tested on a battery of sensorimotor (vibrissae-forelimb placing and bilateral tactile adhesive removal tests), as ...

Report to Congress on the Recovery Program for Threatened and Endangered Species 1996 U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Report to Congress on the Recovery Program for Threatened and Endangered Species 1996 U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Cover photo by P. Mullen/USFWS Introduction The Endangered Species Act of 1973, [16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.] (Act), has as its primary purpose the conservation of endangered and threatened species and the ecosystems upon which they depend. The ultimate goal of such conservation is the recovery of endangered and threatened species and their ecosystems, so that they no longer need the conservation measures afforded them under the Act. Among other things, the Act requires the development of recovery plans for listed endangered or threatened species (except for those species where it is determined that such a plan will not promote the conservation of the species), which serve as an important tool to organize and guide the recovery process, and ensure that recovery is achieved. ...

A team of researchers at and associated with the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), The Scripps Research Institute, the biotechnology company Theraclone Sciences, and Monogram Biosciences Inc., a LabCorp company, report in the current issue of Nature the isolation of 17 novel antibodies capable of neutralizing a broad spectrum of variants of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The new antibodies, large protein molecules that bind to pathogens and flag them for destruction, were isolated from blood serum samples collected in a continuing global search for broadly neutralizing antibodies launched by IAVI. They should provide researchers with a new set of targets for the design of vaccine candidates that can elicit similar antibodies to protect people from contracting HIV. Some of the broadly neutralizing antibodies blocked HIV infection of cells as much as 10 to 100 times as potently as previously discovered broadly neutralizing antibodies. "Most antiviral vaccines depend on stimulating ...

Stroke Recovery: 2 Month Post-Stroke Consultation | Issy Belle Fox
We all know this stroke has been a whirlwind of an adventure, it started off as nightmare and it broke me for a bit, I was angry, anxious and unsure of my future. The Stroke Association recently published a statistic saying that 45% of stroke survivors feel abandoned once discharged from hospital and I am most definitely part of that percentage. Although the Community Stroke Team were in touch with my Mum, arranging to see me within 24 hours, I still felt lost. Stroke recovery is a waiting game and survivors switch between being the most motivated people to get their lives back to wondering if life will ever be the same again. I can confirm it won
Enhanced Recovery Programme - NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement
Background Enhanced recovery programme, originally called the multi-modal approach, was developed by Professor Henrik Kehlet. It is also called fast track surgery. Torbay Hospital developed the enhanced recovery programme based on the experience of Robin Kennedy (Yeovil Hospital - North East Somerset Trust) and Polly Kings experience of enhanced recovery as Robin Kennedys Research Specialist Registrar). He conducted surgical master classes with the surgeons to help them improve their laparoscopic skills. Torbay were also helped by Polly as someone who had already experienced the benefits of the enhanced recovery programme.

NeuroRehabilitation - Volume 11, issue 1 - Journals - IOS Press
Authors: Martelli, Michael F. , Zasler, Nathan D. , MacMillan, Pamela Article Type: Research Article Abstract: The World Health Organization (1980) started the process of classifying consequences of disease and structuring a comprehensive model of illness by publishing its International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities, and Handicaps (ICIDH). Since that time, the field of brain injury rehabilitation has witnessed an evolution from biomedical to biopsychosocial conceptualizations of adaptation and outcome. In the current paper a vulnerability, stress and coping model is presented which incorporates psychological, social and cultural factors with biological factors to offer a schema for increasing understanding of variability in functional outcomes following brain injury. A procedural methodology with preliminary instruments for identifying important vulnerability …and stress and coping factors is presented, along with preliminary data which supports the utility of this approach, and ...

New functional scoring helps better treatment for SCI during hESC
During the past 2 decades, cell-based therapies for SCI have been researched in several studies. Replacement of damaged neural tissues and re-establishing connections between the central and peripheral nervous system is vital for the treatment strategy for patients with SCI. According to factsheet of WHO, over 5 lakh people are estimated to suffer from SCI per year. American Spinal Injury Associations (ASIA) Impairment Scale is a universally accepted scale to assess the SCI, but this scale does not cover all parameters of SCI. Development of new scoring system by Nutech mediworld has the remaining parameters covered in its Nutech Functional score(NFS ...

Recovery interview with Firstbeat
How does this information benefit an athlete? Monitoring this recovery can make the time used in exercising more efficient, because it is good to know when you can exercise on full speed, and when you should take it more slowly and simply let your body recover. Recovery measurement tests will also tell you when you are training too hard, or when you should work harder, so that an athlete can measure the risk of exercising too hard, or not exercising at all. Recovery monitoring is a learning process for you; it enables an athlete to reflect on how he/she is feeling.. What about muscle pain or flue, will the recovery test recognize these?. Even though the autonomic regulation has regained normal levels, intense or abnormal exercises done by an athlete might cause muscle damage, as well as risk to the overall body energy levels. These situations cannot be monitored via autonomic regulation tests. Weakened muscle level recovery can be seen during the exercise, although you wouldnt be able to see it ...
Abstract TP322: Towards better screening for Post Stroke Depression | Stroke
Post stroke depression (PSD), occurring in 33% of stroke survivors, is considered the most critical obstacle to rehabilitation after stroke. PSD is consistently linked with increased length of hospital stay, motivation to undergo rehabilitation, poorer rehabilitation outcomes, decreased engagement in recreational and social pursuits, decreased quality of life, and mortality. Although addressing PSD should be considered a critical factor in stroke recovery, the condition remains largely under-diagnosed. A challenge to diagnosis of PSD is a lack of appropriate screening tools. Existing screening tools were not designed for stroke populations or are too time consuming and complex to be utilized routinely. The goal of the present study was to identify a quick, two item screening tool for PSD that requires no training or scoring. Specifically, we examined what brief combination of dichotomized self-report questions can be used as indicators for a DSM-IV-TR classification of depression in stroke ...
Drugs to Enhance Motor Recovery After Stroke | Stroke
Among the therapeutic strategies under study to improve long-term outcome after stroke are drugs targeting events that underlie recovery. Drugs that enhance recovery are separate from those that promote neuroprotection or reperfusion in patients with stroke. Recovery-based drugs have distinct therapeutic targets that are related to plasticity and growth after stroke, and in general, improvements in behavioral outcome are not accompanied by a reduction in infarct volume. Interventions targeting recovery have a time window measured in days or sometimes weeks-months, suggesting potential utility for a large percentage of patients with stroke. Currently, among drugs that enhance motor recovery after stroke in humans, the strongest evidence exists for serotonergic and dopaminergic agents. Restorative therapies generally target the brain directly, in contrast to approved stroke therapeutics that target arteries, clots, platelets, glucose, or cholesterol. Targeting the brain has wide-ranging ...
Partial Hospitalization Programs | Safe Landing Recovery
Addiction and substance abuse disorders are complex and deep-rooted, affecting all areas of a teens life. While developing coping mechanisms, stress management, and other life skills is part of the inpatient recovery process, the journey shouldnt end at discharge. The early days of sobriety are among the most vulnerable, especially for teens who may struggle not to resort to harmful habits. Continued support and guidance during the transition back into normal life helps fortify your teens commitment to long-term recovery.. For teens in early recovery, partial hospitalization programs offer a safe and secure space for learning to incorporate the lessons of inpatient care into real world situations to reduce the risk of relapse. This outpatient treatment method maintains a focus on recovery to give teens the best chance at a bright future. ...

Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment & Health - Effectiveness of a participatory physical and psychosocial intervention to...
Semi- and unskilled (blue-collar) workers have a higher risk of premature drop-out from the labor market than skilled and white-collar workers (1). An important explanatory factor is the high physical work demands faced by semi- and unskilled workers (such as spending a large proportion of ones worktime standing, walking and forward bending) which impose an adverse effect on health and act as a barrier to sustainable employment (2). However, these employee groups also face various psychosocial work conditions which may deplete personal resources (3). If ample recovery opportunities are not available, the resulting continuous depletion of resources can lead to adverse effects on workers well-being and health (4). Ultimately, in the absence of adequate recovery, negative long-term effects such as exhaustion, losses of function, and physical and mental impairment can occur (4, 5). Long-term effects of poor recovery from work are often preceded by acute symptoms, measured by the need for recovery ...

What Is Recovery? - NAMI Wisconsin - NAMI Wisconsin
Guiding Principles of Recovery Recovery emerges from hope: The belief that recovery is real provides the essential and motivating message of a better future - that people can and do overcome the internal and external challenges, barriers, and obstacles that confront them. Hope is internalized and can be fostered by peers, families, providers, allies, and others. Hope is the catalyst of the recovery process.. Recovery is person-driven: Self-determination and self-direction are the foundations for recovery as individuals define their own life goals and design their unique path(s) towards those goals. Individuals optimize their autonomy and independence to the greatest extent possible by leading, controlling, and exercising choice over the services and supports that assist their recovery and resilience. In so doing, they are empowered and provided the resources to make informed decisions, initiate recovery, build on their strengths, and gain or regain control over their lives.. Recovery occurs via ...

Hypertrophic localized mononeuropathy is a condition that comes to clinical attention as a painless focal swelling of a peripheral nerve in an arm or leg and is associated with a slow but progressive loss of motor and sensory function. Whether the proliferation of perineurial cells is neoplastic or degenerative-an ongoing controversy among nerve pathologists-for some patients resection of the involved portion of a nerve with autologous interposition grafting results in better functional outcome than allowing disease to follow its natural course. Patients with a painless focal enlargement of a nerve associated with progressive weakness and/or sensory loss may benefit from surgery for resection and grafting. ...
Monocyte-Derived Macrophages Contribute to Spontaneous Long-Term Functional Recovery after Stroke in Mice | Journal of...
It is well established that ischemic stroke leads to brain inflammation, involving activated astrocytes and microglia, as well as infiltration of myeloid cells and lymphocytes into the ischemic brain hemisphere (Kochanek and Hallenbeck, 1992; Tomita and Fukuuchi, 1996; Stoll et al., 1998; Campanella et al., 2002; Stevens et al., 2002; Danton and Dietrich, 2003; Gelderblom et al., 2009; Denes et al., 2010; Jin et al., 2010; Miró-Mur et al., 2016). Although excitotoxicity causes neuronal death shortly after the onset of the ischemic insult, the inflammatory reaction is part of the repair mechanism that takes days to reach its peak and, therefore, gives a reasonable window for therapeutic interventions (Dirnagl et al., 1999; Shechter and Schwartz, 2013). Here we demonstrate, for the first time, that the monocytes recruited from the blood to the stroke-injured brain are importantly involved in the long-term spontaneous functional recovery. At the lesion site, MDMs with two distinct phenotypes were ...

William K. Jones. Abstract. Qualitative tracer tests are used to determine flow connections between accessible input and output points and to delineate karst drainage basins for reconnaissance studies. Quantitative tests, which measure the amount of tracer recovered over time and the flow (discharge) of the input and output sources, provide additional insight into the flow processes and mechanisms within the aquifer. The processes acting on a conservative tracer determine the shape or pattern of the dye recovery curve. The dye recovery patterns is determined by 1) the conduit network pattern, 2) the flow characteristics of the aquifer, and 3) the adsorption and dispersion characteristics of the tracer. This page last updated ...
We show here that intrathecal administration of the potent EGFR inhibitor PD168393 leads to very robust, functionally valuable recovery of hindlimb function and bladder emptying, accompanied by improved sensory function, eating, and weight gain after contusion SCI in rats. These functional improvements are correlated with improvement of several histological parameters, such as tissue sparing, amounts of myelin, and 5HT- and TH-IR fiber tracts.. We observed functional improvement soon after injury, suggesting a protective mechanism of action for PD168393. However, treated animals continued to improve throughout the observation period, whereas controls did not improve further after 3 weeks. Rapid improvements in the first 3 weeks after experimental incomplete spinal cord injury have been observed in response to other treatments of experimental SCI, such as NgR antibodies, C3, or chondroitinase (Bradbury et al., 2002; Dergham et al., 2002; GrandPre et al., 2002; Filbin, 2003). In contrast, ...

Andrew: Qualified 3rd in the flying 200 meter time trial. Had a little technical issue with the front disc when it came a little lose and rubbed the fork into the home stretch 200 meters out, so I fell short there. I now have a nice grove in the fork now but no big deal. I do have to take my hat to the Aussies. I knew it was going to be the toughest racing I ever did. They did a great job of bringing me long in the 1/8s and ¼ finals. By the time I got to Burne I was pretty tired and need more time to recover. At Master Worlds they go 24 deep with two reps. Here in the states they go 10 deep with one rep. Again, did I fall short of my goals? Well I think I did my best. In the race with Burne it got a little close. I was not going to move and either was Burne. He is bigger than I but I was up for the challenge. In order to get on the podium I had to beat Worley, but I was spent - nothing left.

- Despite the success of functional imaging to map changes in brain activation patterns after stroke, spatiotemporal dynamics of cerebral reorganization in correlation with behavioral recovery remain incompletely characterized. (jneurosci.org)
- Here, we applied resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) together with behavioral testing to longitudinally assess functional connectivity within neuronal networks, in relation to changes in associated function after unilateral stroke in rats. (jneurosci.org)
- Our specific goals were (1) to identify temporal alterations in functional connectivity within the bilateral cortical sensorimotor system and (2) to elucidate the relationship between those alterations and changes in sensorimotor function. (jneurosci.org)
- Our study revealed considerable loss of functional connectivity between ipsilesional and contralesional primary sensorimotor cortex regions, alongside significant sensorimotor function deficits in the first days after stroke. (jneurosci.org)
- The temporal pattern of changes in functional connectivity between bilateral primary motor and somatosensory cortices correlated significantly with the evolution of sensorimotor function scores. (jneurosci.org)
- Our study (1) demonstrates that poststroke loss and recovery of sensorimotor function is associated with acute deterioration and subsequent retrieval of interhemispheric functional connectivity within the sensorimotor system and (2) underscores the potential of rs-fMRI to assess spatiotemporal characteristics of functional brain reorganization that may underlie behavioral recovery after brain injury. (jneurosci.org)
- Our rationale is to integrate them with the ultimate goal of breaking stereotypical compensatory strategies in favor of a gradual functional reorganization of upper body movements, obtained by continuously adapting the interface to the subject's status and physiological changes, such as aging, recovery, and progress of the illness.

- Long term repeated stimulation of the same site with EA does not appear to be conducive to the functional recovery of an injured sciatic nerve in rats. (ovid.com)
- Outcome measures included functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) for the shoulder/elbow components of reach and a skilled motor function test (Arm Motor Abilities Test, AMAT), collected before and after treatment.Results: We observed two patterns of neuroplastic changes that were associated with gains in motor function: decreased or increased task-related brain activation. (frontiersin.org)
- There was a linear relationship between greater functional gain (AMAT) and increased activation in bilateral primary motor, contralesional primary and secondary sensory regions, and contralesional lateral premotor area, after adjusting for baseline AMAT, age, and time since stroke.Conclusions: Recovery of functional reach involves recruitment of several contralesional and bilateral primary motor regions. (frontiersin.org)
- In response to intensive therapy, the direction of functional brain change (i.e., increase or decrease in task-related brain recruitment) for shoulder/elbow reach components depends on baseline level of motor function and may represent either different phases of recovery or different patterns of neuroplasticity that drive functional recovery.
