A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-V)
An affective disorder manifested by either a dysphoric mood or loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities. The mood disturbance is prominent and relatively persistent.
An anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent, persistent obsessions or compulsions. Obsessions are the intrusive ideas, thoughts, or images that are experienced as senseless or repugnant. Compulsions are repetitive and seemingly purposeful behavior which the individual generally recognizes as senseless and from which the individual does not derive pleasure although it may provide a release from tension.
A class of traumatic stress disorders with symptoms that last more than one month. There are various forms of post-traumatic stress disorder, depending on the time of onset and the duration of these stress symptoms. In the acute form, the duration of the symptoms is between 1 to 3 months. In the chronic form, symptoms last more than 3 months. With delayed onset, symptoms develop more than 6 months after the traumatic event.

Perception of and adaptation to rectal isobaric distension in patients with faecal incontinence. (1/492)

BACKGROUND: Perception of, and adaptation of the rectum to, distension probably play an important role in the maintenance of continence, but perception studies in faecal incontinence provide controversial conclusions possibly related to methodological biases. In order to better understand perception disorders, the aim of this study was to analyse anorectal adaptation to rectal isobaric distension in subjects with incontinence. PATIENTS/METHODS: Between June 95 and December 97, 97 consecutive patients (nine men and 88 women, mean (SEM) age 55 (1) years) suffering from incontinence were evaluated and compared with 15 healthy volunteers (four men and 11 women, mean age 48 (3) years). The patients were classified into three groups according to their perception status to rectal isobaric distensions (impaired, 22; normal, 61; enhanced, 14). Anal and rectal adaptations to increasing rectal pressure were analysed using a model of rectal isobaric distension. RESULTS: The four groups did not differ with respect to age, parity, or sex ratio. Magnitude of incontinence, prevalence of pelvic disorders, and sphincter defects were similar in the incontinent groups. When compared with healthy controls, anal pressure and rectal adaptation to distension were decreased in incontinent patients. When compared with incontinent patients with normal perception, patients with enhanced perception experienced similar rectal adaptation but had reduced anal pressure. In contrast, patients with impaired perception showed considerably decreased rectal adaptation but had similar anal pressure. CONCLUSION: Abnormal sensations during rectal distension are observed in one third of subjects suffering from incontinence. These abnormalities may reflect hyperreactivity or neuropathological damage of the rectal wall.  (+info)

Effects of physical and sporting activities on balance control in elderly people. (2/492)

OBJECTIVE: Balance disorders increase with aging and raise the risk of accidental falls in the elderly. It has been suggested that the practice of physical and sporting activities (PSA) efficiently counteracts these age related disorders, reducing the risk of falling significantly. METHODS: This study, principally based on a period during which the subjects were engaged in PSA, included 65 healthy subjects, aged over 60, who were living at home. Three series of posturographic tests (static, dynamic with a single and fast upward tilt, and dynamic with slow sinusoidal oscillations) analysing the centre of foot pressure displacements or electromyographic responses were conducted to determine the effects of PSA practice on balance control. RESULTS: The major variables of postural control were best in subjects who had always practised PSA (AA group). Those who did not take part in PSA at all (II group) had the worst postural performances, whatever the test. Subjects having lately begun PSA practice (IA group) had good postural performances, close to those of the AA group, whereas the subjects who had stopped the practice of PSA at an early age (AI group) did not perform as well. Overall, the postural control in the group studied decreased in the order AA > IA > AI > II. CONCLUSIONS: The period during which PSA are practised seems to be of major importance, having a positive bearing on postural control. It seems that recent periods of practice have greater beneficial effects on the subject's postural stability than PSA practice only at an early age. These data are compatible with the fact that PSA are extremely useful for elderly people even if it has not been a lifelong habit.  (+info)

Neglect after right insular cortex infarction. (3/492)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Case reports have shown an association between right insular damage and neglect. The aim of this study was to examine the incidence of neglect among patient groups with right or left insular infarction. METHODS: We examined neglect in 9 right-handed subjects with insular stroke as evidenced by CT and/or MRI scans (4 with right insular and 5 with left insular cerebrovascular accident) between 4 and 8 weeks after acute stroke with tests of visual, tactile, and auditory perception. RESULTS: Compared with patients with left insular lesions, patients with right insular lesions showed significant neglect in the tactile, auditory, and visual modalities. CONCLUSIONS: The right insular cortex seems to have a role in awareness of external stimuli, and infarction in this area may lead to neglect in multisensory modalities.  (+info)

Central pain after pontine infarction is associated with changes in opioid receptor binding: a PET study with 11C-diprenorphine. (4/492)

Using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose and 11C-diprenorphine positron emission tomography (PET), we investigated alterations in glucose metabolism and opioid receptor binding in a patient with central poststroke pain, which developed after a small pontine hemorrhagic infarction. In comparison with normal databases, reduced 11C-diprenorphine binding was more accentuated than the hypometabolism on the lateral cortical surface contralateral to the symptoms, and a differential abnormal distribution between the tracers was seen in pain-related central structures. These results show that 11C-diprenorphine PET provides unique information for the understanding of central poststroke pain.  (+info)

Long-term effects on the olfactory system of exposure to hydrogen sulphide. (5/492)

OBJECTIVE: To study chronic effects of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) on cranial nerve I (nervi olfactorii), which have been only minimally described. METHODS: Chemosensations (smell and taste) were evaluated in eight men who complained of continuing dysfunction 2-3 years after the start of occupational exposure to H2S. Various bilateral (both nostrils) and unilateral (one nostril at a time) odour threshold tests with standard odorants as well as the Chicago smell test, a three odour detection and identification test and the University of Pennsylvania smell identification test, a series of 40 scratch and sniff odour identification tests were administered. RESULTS: Six of the eight patients showed deficits of various degrees. Two had normal scores on objective tests, but thought that they continued to have problems. H2S apparently can cause continuing, sometimes unrecognised olfactory deficits. CONCLUSION: Further exploration into the extent of such problems among workers exposed to H2S is warranted.  (+info)

The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (6/492)

OBJECTIVES: During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these lesions. METHODS: The questions investigated nervous symptoms, such as paraesthesia and diminishment of sensitivity, and osteoligamentous symptoms, such as pain, specifying the localisation (ulnar side, dorsal aspect of the wrist, snuff box) and the effect of the wrist position on the intensity of the pain. Clinical examination was carried out bilaterally and symmetrically. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 22 drivers reported symptoms. One suffered cramp in his hands at the end of each race and one described a typical forearm effort compartment syndrome. Six drivers had effort "osteoligamentous" symptoms: three scapholunate pain; one medial hypercompression of the wrist; two sequellae of a distal radius fracture. Seven reported nerve disorders: two effort carpal tunnel syndromes; one typical carpal tunnel syndrome; one effort cubital tunnel syndrome; three paraesthesia in all fingers at the end of a race, without any objective signs. CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first report of upper extremity disorders in competition drivers. The use of a wrist pad to reduce the effects of vibration may help to prevent trauma to the wrist in formula 1 drivers.  (+info)

Principles of applied neurogastroenterology: physiology/motility-sensation. (7/492)

Many of the symptoms characteristic of the functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID) are consistent with dysfunction of the motor and/or sensory apparatus of the digestive tract. Those aspects of sensorimotor dysfunction most relevant to the FGID include alterations in: gut contractile activity; myoelectrical activity; tone and compliance; and transit, as well as an enhanced sensitivity to distension, in each region of the gastrointestinal tract. Assessment of these phenomena involves a number of techniques, some well established and others requiring further validation. Using such techniques, researchers have reported a wide range of alterations in sensory and in motor function in the FGID. Importantly, however, relationships between such dysfunction and symptoms have been relatively weak, and so the clinical relevance of the former remains unclear. Moreover, the proportions of patients in the various symptom subgroups who display dysfunction, and the extent and severity of their symptoms, require better characterization. On a positive note, progress is occurring on several fronts, especially in relation to functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome, and based on the data gathered to date, a number of areas where further advances are required can be highlighted.  (+info)

Olfactory dysfunction in schizophrenia: a qualitative and quantitative review. (8/492)

Olfactory dysfunction in patients with schizophrenia has been a topic of increasing interest, with deficits in odor identification, detection threshold sensitivity, discrimination, and memory being reported. Despite increasing knowledge, controversy has existed about possible differential deficits among olfactory tests as well as the influences of gender, smoking, and medication status on olfactory measures. To help elucidate some of this controversy, we conducted a qualitative and quantitative (meta-analytic) review of the English language literature on olfaction in schizophrenia. Moderator variables such as gender, medication status, and smoking history were also examined. Results indicated that substantial olfactory deficits, across all domains, are observed in patients with schizophrenia. No differential deficits were observed across domains of odor identification, detection threshold sensitivity, discrimination, and memory. The influences of gender, medication status, and smoking on effect sizes were not significant across studies. This supports the hypothesis of primary dysfunction in the olfactory system that is regulated by brain regions where structural and functional abnormalities have also been reported in neuroimaging studies.  (+info)

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is an intermediate stage between the expected cognitive decline of normal aging and severe dementia associated with Alzheimers disease (AD). In the United States about 20% of older adults have MCI, and approximately 15% per year of those with MCI will progress to AD. With our rapidly aging society, we are approaching a public health crisis for which we are not fully prepared. Impaired cognitive function in aging can have far-reaching and devastating impacts on functional status, ability to maintain independence, and overall quality of life. Unfortunately, the therapeutic options to slow progression of cognitive decline in aging are limited.. Dual-task training that involves simultaneous cognitive and motor challenges improves certain domains of both cognitive and motor function in older adults with MCI. However, we do not yet know the optimal methods of delivering this high-impact potential therapy in community-based settings with unique limitations and ...

As we age, our sensory systems gradually lose their sharpness. Because our brain requires a minimal amount of input to remain alert and functioning, sensory loss for older adults puts them at risk for sensory deprivation. Severe sensory impairments, such as in vision or hearing, may result in behavior similar to dementia and psychosis, such as increased disorientation and confusion. Added restrictions, such as confinement to bed or a Geri-chair, increases this risk. With nothing to show the passage of time, or changes in the environment, the sensory deprived person may resort to repetitive problem behaviors (calling out, chanting, rhythmic pounding/rocking) as an attempt to reduce the sense of deprivation and to create internal stimulation/sensations.. This article is the first in a series of three articles that discuss the prominent sensory changes that accompany aging, and considers the necessary behavioral adjustments or accommodations that should be made by professional, paraprofessional, ...
Scientists studying Parkinsons disease (PD) previously have focused on the brains motor and premotor cortex, but not the somatosensory or the visual cortex. But Emory neurologist Krish Sathian, MD, PhD, and colleagues had earlier discovered, through tests of tactile ability, that PD patients have sensory problems with touch. They designed a study using fMRI to investigate the brain changes underlying these sensory abnormalities. Dr. Sathians research group studied six patients with moderately advanced PD and six age-matched healthy controls. After documenting the typical movement problems of PD and ruling out dementia and nerve problems in the PD patients, they administered a common test of tactile ability to both groups, asking the participants to use their fingers to distinguish the orientation of ridges and grooves on plastic gratings. At the same time, they conducted a brain-scanning study using fMRI. This technology measures activations of neurons in different areas of the brain by means ...
DiscussionAn important thing to note is that improvement due to interventional training for stroke patients shown in the therapy room are retained in their daily lives. Filiatrault et al [11] reported that the sustained therapeutic effects from clinic to home depended on the similarities of the 2 tasks performed, or similarity of the 2 different environments. In other words, the more the training environment and practical environment were similar, the better the learning or therapeutic effects were transferred. Dual-task training differs from the simple task training conducted in clinical studies of stroke patients, to more closely resemble the patients daily routines, which require the simultaneous performance of various tasks. In this respect, this study applied dual task training, which resembles actual daily tasks to chronic stroke patients, to examine the therapeutic effects on upper limb function and performance of daily activities. As a result, statistically significant effects of the ...

article{0b9ce1d6-6757-49b9-aeef-85083886f46c, abstract = {Inguinal hernia repair is associated with a 5%-30% incidence of chronic pain, but the pathogenesis remains unknown. We therefore evaluated pain and sensory dysfunction by quantitative sensory testing 6-12 mo after open herniorrhaphy. Before sensory testing, all patients (n = 72) completed a short-form McGill Pain Questionnaire and a functional impairment questionnaire. Sensory dysfunction in the incisional area was evaluated by quantification of thermal and mechanical thresholds, by mechanical pain responses (von Frey/pressure algometry), and by areas of pinprick hypoesthesia and tactile allodynia. The incidence of chronic pain was 28% (20 of 72). Quantitative sensory testing and pressure algometry did not demonstrate differences between the pain and nonpain groups, except for a small but significant increase in pain response to von Frey hair and brush stimulation in the pain group. Hypoesthesia, or tactile allodynia, in the incisional ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate a novel therapeutic approach for the treatment of brain dysfunction in a mouse model of Rett syndrome (RTT), a severe autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Turner syndrome (TS), which results from the complete or partial absence of an X chromosome in phenotypic females, occurs in ∼1 in 2000 live births (Lippe, 1991). The TS phenotype is characterized by short stature, gonadal dysgenesis, and a cognitive profile of relative strengths in verbal skills (Ross et al., 2000) with impairments in visuospatial and arithmetic processing (Waber, 1979; Pennington et al., 1985; Bender et al., 1993; Murphy et al., 1994; Rovet and Ireland, 1994), motor function (Ross et al., 1996), executive function (McCauley et al., 1987), and social cognition (Ross et al., 2000). Individual variation in the physical and cognitive characteristics in TS are believed to be attributable to a number of factors, including mosaic karyotypes consisting of partial X or Y chromosome fragments and possibly X-linked imprinting (Skuse et al., 1997; Kesler et al., 2003). These factors (Murphy et al., 1993) may result in altered neurodevelopment and impaired cognitive ability.. Functional ...
Background - A sensory trick, or geste antagoniste, is defined as a physical gesture (such as a touch on a particular body part) that mitigates the production of an involuntary movement. This phenomenon is most commonly described as a feature of dystonia. Here we present a case of successful modulation of tics using sensory tricks.Case Report - A case report and video are presented. The case and video demonstrate a 19-year-old male who successfully controlled his tics with various sensory tricks.
A person with balance problems may experience tripping, swaying, stumbling, dizziness, vertigo, and falling. Although a persons static balance may be fine when standing still or only performing a single task at a time, dynamic balance problems may become apparent when the person is moving about or trying to do more than 1 thing at a time (i.e., walking, while turning the head to talk to another person), or when there is not much light (at night, or in a darkened room). If someones dynamic balance is abnormal, it can cause a fall and possible injury.. Balance problems can make a person fearful of performing simple daily activities. As a result, they may lose muscle strength and become frail because they avoid strenuous or challenging movements. A person who has balance problems may start to feel frustration about the condition, and become depressed.. ...
The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate postural balance, physical activity, physical capacity and their associations in young people (16-20 years) with intellectual disability (ID), mild to moderate. The aim was also to study the reliability and concurrent validity of postural balance tests.. To evaluate postural balance, one assessor used five common postural balance tests and one new test. The tests were performed twice for 89 young people with ID (one to twelve days apart). Intraclass correlation coefficients greater than 0.80 were achieved for four of the common balance tests: Extended Timed Up and Go Test (ETUGT), Modified Forward Reach Test (MFRT), One-Leg Stance Test (OLS), and a Force Platform Test (FPT). The smallest real difference ranged from 12% to 40%; less than 20% is considered to be low. For the six balance tests, the concurrent validity varied between none to low.. Falls are more common for young people with ID compared to young people without ID. One reason could be ...

Balance problems can lead to a feeling of dizziness or as if the room is spinning. Some people feel as though they may fall down. These feelings can happen when lying down, sitting, or standing.. Many body systems - including muscles, bones, joints, vision, the balance organ in the inner ear, nerves, heart and blood vessels - must work normally to have normal balance. When these systems arent functioning well, issues with balance can occur.. Many medical conditions can cause balance problems. However, most balance problems result from issues in the balance end-organ in the inner ear (vestibular system).. ...
Mechanical and thermal sensory tests were performed in areas of intense allodynia within the PHN site and at the corresponding contralateral site. In subjects without allodynia, sensory testing was performed in the region of maximum pain as indicated by the patient. The region of dynamic allodynia was mapped by stroking the affected skin with a cotton swab from a site well outside the symptomatic region toward the painful region in at least four different directions. This region was tested with an 11- or 33-mN von Frey filament to define areas of intense allodynia to punctate stimuli. Two areas on the trunk or the extremities in which the patients were markedly allodynic were identified for subsequent thermal testing. A single site, the most allodynic spot, was chosen for testing on the face, because of space limitation. Ongoing pain and stimulus-evoked pain were rated by the subjects on the numerical rating scale of 0-10. Baseline ongoing pain ratings were obtained before the sensory testing. ...
We included 13 studies, with a total 467 participants, testing a range of different interventions. Outcome measures included 36 measures of sensory impairment and 13 measures of upper limb function. All but two studies had unclear or high risk of bias. While there is insufficient evidence to reach conclusions about the effects of interventions included in this review, three studies provided preliminary evidence for the effects of some specific interventions, including mirror therapy for improving detection of light touch, pressure and temperature pain; a thermal stimulation intervention for improving rate of recovery of sensation; and intermittent pneumatic compression intervention for improving tactile and kinesthetic sensation. We could not perform meta-analysis due to a high degree of clinical heterogeneity in both interventions and outcomes.. ...
Balance problems and falls are a common concern among individuals with Parkinsons disease (PD). Falls frequently occur during daily activities such as reaching into cupboards in the kitchen or bathroom. This study compared the correlation among two standard postural stability tests - the postural stability score on the Unified Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) and the Functional Reach Test (FRT) - and ecologically valid reaching tasks that correspond to reaching at different cupboard heights among 20 individuals with PD and 20 age-matched controls. Both the FRT and the UPDRS postural stability tests are quick measures that can be performed during the clinical examination. The FRT, but not the postural stability score, demonstrated a significant correlation with the ecologically valid reaching tasks, among individuals with PD. Furthermore the FRT scores did not correlate with the UPDRS postural stability scores, indicating that these are measuring different aspects of balance. This study suggests
The Sensory Profile (Dunn, 1999) is a caregiver questionnaire consisting of 125 items that describe a childs response to sensory experiences. The items are divided into three main sections: (1) sensory processing, (2) modulation, and (3) behavioral and emotional responses. The questionnaire items also form nine meaningful groups, or factors, that characterize children by their responsiveness to sensory input. The Supplement Summary Score Sheet to the Sensory Profile (Dunn, 2006b) provides four quadrant scores (registration, seeking, sensitivity, and avoiding) that correspond to Dunns (1997) Model of Sensory Processing (Figure 1). According to the model, registration is the level at which a child misses sensory input, seeking is the level at which a child obtains sensory input, sensitivity is the level at which a child notices sensory input, and avoiding is the level at which a child is bothered by sensory input. Parents respond to each statement by reporting the frequency with which their ...
Various end points have been used to assess efficacy in treatment trials of diabetic polyneuropathy: sum scores of neurologic abnormalities (e.g., the NIS), QSTs, nerve conduction, autonomic tests, combinations of these, and morphometry of nerve. In the present study, we use positive neuropathic sensory symptoms using TSS. An Ad Hoc Panel on End points for Diabetic Neuropathy Trials (20) had previously defined positive neuropathic sensory symptoms, discussed their use as trial end points, cited approaches for their assessment, and defined the degree of change that might be considered clinically meaningful and able to meet standards for being efficacious in controlled trials. Assuming that in such a trial the study was rigorously performed and doubly masked, it would be necessary to first show a statistically significant degree of symptom change for the trial drug above that found for the placebo; the degree of change should be of sufficient magnitude to be considered meaningful and should not ...
Background: Impaired postural balance is a common symptom after stroke and a common cause of falling. Most common daily tasks use arm and hand movements. Impairment in an upper extremity is a common stroke symptom, affecting 50-80% in the acute phase after stroke, and 40-50% in the sub-acute phase. The impact of leg function on postural balance has been investigated in several studies, but few have stressed the importance of arm function on postural balance. Objective: To explore whether there is any association between arm function and postural balance after stroke. Method: A cross sectional study where 121 adults (mean age: 70 +/- 12.3 years, 72 men) from two different data sources, Gothenburg Very Early Supported Discharge (GOTVED), and a study by Carvalho et al. were merged. Time for assessments ranged from 1 to 13 years when the patients were in the chronic phase. The dependent variables were Berg Balance scale (BBS) and Time Up and Go (TUG) both dichotomized to impaired postural balance ...
As we age, our balance and equilibrium gradually get worse. This can result in seniors prone to losing their balance and falling. Vertigo (dizziness) is the feeling you get when you have the sensation as if you or the room are spinning. It has been reported that in the United States nearly one-third of seniors after the age of 65 have falls linked to balance problems and at age 75 and beyond nearly half of this group will suffer a fall secondary to balance problems. There is no preference…. Continue reading → ...
Balance is very important, especially as we get older. People can fall when they lose their balance, sometimes with serious consequences.

Sensory processing problems and related dysfunctions are among the most common conditions in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study examined the effect of sensory integration therapy (SIT) on different aspects of occupational performance in children with ASD. The study was conducted on an intervention group ( n = 16) receiving SIT and a control group ( n = 15) with 3- to 8-year-old children with ASD. The Short Child Occupational Profile (SCOPE) was used to compare the two groups in terms of the changes in their occupational performance and the Sensory Profile (SP) was used to assess sensory problems ...
Unusual responses to sensory stimuli have been reported in nearly all children with autism spectrum conditions (ASC). A few studies on adults indicate that the sensory and perceptual problems persist into adulthood. Sensory symptoms have not been included in the diagnostic criteria for ASC but in the new diagnostic manual (DSM-5, 2013) hyper- or hyporeactivity or unusual sensory interests were included in the diagnostic criteria for ASC. Sensory phenomena are mostly investigated in studies involving children and the scales used to measure sensory reactivity have been constructed on the basis of the scientific literature and parents reports. The experiences of adults with ASC are not well understood and have not been systematically used to develop measures.. The overall aim of the thesis was to capture the first-hand experiences of and perspectives on sensory reactivity and translate them into a self-rating scale. To fulfil this overarching aim the personal sensory experiences of adults with ASC ...
The purpose of this study was to determine changes in balance, postural sway, and quality of life after 6 wk of simulated horseback riding in adults diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. Eight older adults completed two 60-min riding sessions weekly for 6 wk. Variables of balance, postural sway, and quality of life were measured 6 wks before and within 1 wk before and after the intervention. Berg Balance Scale scores decreased from baseline to preintervention (48.36 ± 5.97 vs. 45.86 ± 6.42, p = .050) and increased from preintervention to postintervention (45.86 ± 6.42 vs. 50.00 ± 4.38, p = .002). Cognitive impairment, a dimension of quality of life, improved from baseline to postintervention (37.5 ± 20.5 vs. 21.5 ± 14.4, p = .007). Six weeks of simulated horseback riding may improve balance and cognitive impairment in older adults with Parkinsons disease. ...
GBS is an autoimmune disease that typically is preceded by an acute bacterial or viral infection. Although the exact cause is unknown, GBS has been shown to be preceded frequently by a respiratory infection or stomach virus. In rare cases, GBS may manifest in a patient after receiving certain vaccinations. GBS can be identified by various degrees of ascending weakness, sensory abnormalities, diminished or absent reflexes, and autonomic dysfunction, all of which occur symmetrically and evolve rapidly. GBS often emanates in the legs, and the associated pain, weakness, and paresthesia can spread quickly to the arms and face depending on the severity of the disease in a particular patient. On average, the disease achieves its most severe neurological state (i.e., its nadir) within 8 days; however, the nadir must occur during a period of less than 4 weeks to satisfy the diagnostic criteria of acute GBS.2 In the event that symptoms continue to progress beyond a 4-week period, the diagnostic focus ...

Delirium is defined as an acute, fluctuating syndrome of altered attention, awareness, and cognition. It is common in older persons in the hospital and long-term care facilities and may indicate a life-threatening condition. Assessment for and prevention of delirium should occur at admission and continue throughout a hospital stay. Caregivers should be educated on preventive measures, as well as signs and symptoms of delirium and conditions that would indicate the need for immediate evaluation. Certain medications, sensory impairments, cognitive impairment, and various medical conditions are a few of the risk factors associated with delirium. Preventive interventions such as frequent reorientation, early and recurrent mobilization, pain management, adequate nutrition and hydration, reducing sensory impairments, and ensuring proper sleep patterns have all been shown to reduce the incidence of delirium, regardless of the care environment. Treatment of delirium should focus on identifying and ...

Suddenly balance is not so certain. Call in the balance mechanic-but wait, thats you! If the thought of you working on somebody elses balance difficulties is leaving you feeling like a deer in the headlights, then this chapter is for you. Good balance training, especially for groups where individual needs vary, should be comprehensive and include as many elements for balance as possible. Include activities for flexibility, posture, and strength, as well as traditional balance components and everyday skills (see chapter 1 for a discussion on multicomponent training). The Senior Fitness Test Manual (Rikli and Jones, 2001) has several tests that can be easily used for groups or individuals. The tests are easy to do and are well validated with norms presented. I most frequently use the flexibility, strength, endurance, and Get Up and Go tests.
