Flashcards in 8/25/14 Deck (23):
3-15 measures eye opening, motor response, verbal response
steroid side effect
GI ulcer, hyperglycemia
The 3 brain component
brain tissue, cloos, cerebrospinal fluid.
decrease in LOC
hypoxia, hypoglycemia, hypotension, hypovolemia, hyponatremia, hypernatremia, H+ acidosis
1(sys) + 2(dia) divided 3
cerebral perfusion pressure (MAP-ICP) normal 70-100. CPP must be more than 60
How todecrease ICP
bed at 30 degree., keep neck neutral, pain
Increases systolic but diastolic stays down. (WIdening pulse pressure).
Bradycardia with full bounding pulse
irregular, slow resp
LATE SIGN THAT BRAIN HERNIATION IS IMMINENT
knuckle against sternum, or torque against trap muscle on back
Posture is not a good sign
dilated and fixed pupil
sign of ICP
less than 30 incompatiblewith life. less than 60 impaired impaired blood flow
pulls fluid from the cell to the vascular system . Stresses the heart and lung because more fluid in vascular system
A physiologic process that maintains constant cerebral blood flow despite fluctuations in BP>
C-4 above injury
lost of all muscle function, including breathing often. fatal/onvent total dependence on ADL
Weak shoulder shrug NO HAND GRASP. Weak cough effort-diaphram affected. Frequently on ventilator during acute phase. Loses extension, weak flexion, gross weak hand motion.
cervical injury, usual protected (ribs) Loses sensation-ARMS,WEAK HAND MOVEMENT. Has potential for independent living (most self care, drives, assistance for 6 hrs/day).
variable body temperature
SPinal cord injury drug
hiGH DOSE methylprednisolone
CORING OUT THE VERTEBERAL BODY FOR CAGE
rapid onset HTN and bradycardia, Diaphoresis, goosbumps, red face, throbbing headache. TX find cause
