Chuck was in his late fifties or early sixties when he rolled into the therapeutic recreation atrium at D.C. s National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH), where I was interning. He rounded the corner of the second-floor hallway and I tripped on the linoleum floor because I was staring at the flesh-toned breastplate, shaped like a butterfly, shrouding his internal organs. I wanted to peek under his sheath. He was leaning so far back in his wheelchair, it looked like a car wash fan was blasting him dry. He had a square face, closely cropped hair, and measured eyes that watched me gape as if he could see into me, or through me, kind of like a scientist, or a maybe more like a father. He was a new patient, someone to attend to.. I was a twenty-two-year-old about to graduate from Kent State University with a degree I didnt quiet respect, but wanted to, in therapeutic recreation.

continued from page 17) the trouble. A pattern is set that continues into sobriety. If planning is not practiced in recovery, the pattern will not change. The therapeutic recreation specialist needs to assist the addicted person with leisure planning. It is important that the patient can practice leisure planning within the treatment program itself. Patients need to plan some of their own recreational activities while in treatment. This includes planning structured activites, planning free time and planning leisure within continuing care. Prior to discharge from the inpatient program, each patient completes a continuing leisure plan and meets with the therapeutic recreation staff on a one-to-one basis to review and discuss their leisure plan. Goals are set with the patient for continuing leisure involvement. This plan is forwarded to the continuing care therapist for follow up. The addicted person, given the opportunities and the direction to plan leisure, will benefit from the realization that ...

Recreational therapy or recreation therapy often refers to the provision of treatment or therapy which uses recreation and activities as the primary medium for persons whose functional abilities are affected by illness, disability or other conditions.

Study explored differences in characteristics, treatment provided, and short-term and medium-term outcomes among patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) admitted to inpatient rehabilitation, categorized by age. Data on 1,419 patients admitted to 9 inpatient rehabilitation facilities after TBI were collected through: (1) abstraction from medical records, (2) point-of care forms completed by therapists after each treatment session, and (3) interviews at 3 months and 9 months after discharge, conducted with the patient or a proxy. Results indicated that elderly patients (65 or older) had a lower brain injury severity, and a shorter length of stay (LOS) in acute care. During rehabilitation, they received fewer hours of therapy, due to a shorter LOS and fewer hours of treatment per day, especially from psychology and therapeutic recreation. They regained less functional ability during and after inpatient rehabilitation, and had a very high mortality rate ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Long-lasting changes in the cochlear K+ recycling structures after acute energy failure. AU - Takiguchi, Yoichiro. AU - Sun, Guang wei. AU - Ogawa, Kaoru. AU - Matsunaga, Tatsuo. PY - 2013/9/1. Y1 - 2013/9/1. N2 - Fibrocytes in the cochlear lateral wall and spiral limbus play an important role in transporting K+ and have the capacity of self-renewal. We showed that acute energy failure in the rat cochlea induced by local administration of the mitochondrial toxin 3-nitropropionic acid (3NP) caused hearing loss in a concentration-dependent manner, mainly due to degeneration of cochlear fibrocytes. We produced long-lasting profound cochlear damage in this model by modifying the 3NP administration protocol and observed morphological changes at 16 weeks after the administration. In the spiral ligament, severe degeneration of fibrocytes was observed in the basal turn, and the levels of the Na,K-ATPase alpha and beta1 subunits and of NKCC1 were decreased in these cells, whereas connexin ...

The blood of all patients was not only screened for the presence of the JM-27 protein, but also analyzed to determine exactly how much JM-27 was in the bloodstream of each man. Researchers found a "statistically significant" difference in the levels of JM-27 in the men who were either completely asymptomatic or had mild symptoms of BPH. Men with higher levels of JM-27 had the less severe form of BPH, whereas men with low levels of JM-27 had the worse form of the disease based on their symptoms. And the presence of prostate cancer did not throw these results off; in other words, even in these men, it could be determined, based on their levels of JM-27, whether they suffered from the mild or severe form of BPH.. Getzenberg says the new biomarker test detects approximately 90 percent of the men with the severe form of BPH and only incorrectly classifies men as having this form of the disease in 23 percent of the cases.. Current medical therapy for men who suffer from BPH is with two classes of ...

Nitraflex uses some excellent ingredients, a few of which are presented in premium forms. The Carnosyn, Citrulline Malate, and AAKG stand out as quality pre-workout selections.. Meanwhile, the patented Calcium fructopyranose borate (CFB) stands out as a potent T-booster that weve never seen used in a pre-workout formula. Great choice.. Its frustrating that Nitraflex uses proprietary blends (and hilarious what they NAME those blends). But considering the massive 10 g scoop size and "3x potency" claims, we actually believe most Nitraflex dosages hit Critical Mass.. The NO complex and Test complex are tightly focused. One is good for nitric oxide → circulation → vascularity; the other boosts testosterone. Nice and clean.. On the other hand, the "Acute Energy, Focus, Intensity, Neuromodulating, Endurance Complex" is all over the map. Why they cram all these bio-activities into a single complex is a mystery. Why not one complex for energy/endurance, and another for cognitive effects? Anyway, ...
