1

instrumentation satisfies which component of the PART system?

T - TISSUE TONE

2

instrumentation is assessing?

vasomotor function, dermal microvasculature, sympathetic nervous system (smooth muscle regulation, tunica media of vessel, function without an antagionist)

3

what is the purpose of instrumentation?

objectify neurologic function, target area for further assessment, WHEN to and when NOT to adjust

4

nervoscope tells you...

WHEN TO ADJUST

5

tytron c-3000 gathers information from?

first 5 mm of epidermis

6

tytron c-3000 is what type of system?

paraspinal thermal imaging system (infrared technology, relative skin temperature, direct skin temperature)

7

tytron c-3000 is primarily used for which type of analysis?

PATTERN

8

can the tytron c-3000 be used for break analysis?

yes, but it's not as effective

9

what are some disadvantages of the tytron c-3000?

less effective for break analysis and doesn't work well in the cold (below 60 degrees)

10

VSC associated with tytron c-3000?

neuropathology (dermal thermoregulation) and histopathology (cytological/inflammation/edema)

11

full spine scan using tytron c-3000 should take?

26 seconds

12

patient placement which using tytron c-3000?

identical to that of running cervical glide with nervoscope (patient sits all the way to the back of chair)

13

tytron c-3000: scan commences at...

S2

14

tytron c-3000: scan terminates at...

base of occiput

15

which speed should you keep while running a scan using the tytron c-3000?

speed of 1 second/segment

16

tytron c-3000: every scan that is run is accompanied by a...

mastoid fossa reading

17

mastoid fossa reading provides more specific information about?

upper cervical complex (occ-c1-c2*)

18

mastoid fossa reading commence by...

pressing "F" key

19

mastoid fossa reading

right barrel in right fossa, right barrel again in left fossa

20

with a mastoid fossa reading what would indicated clinical significance?

0.5 degrees C or greater

21

gold standard for tytron c-3000?

take 3 thermal readings (scans) over a 24 hour period with scans spaced apart as evenly as possible (12 hours)

22

which is it important to space our scans involved with tytron c-3000?

body needs time to adapt

23

three general scan types for the doctor to consider:

pattern, adaptive, stress

24

stress could be due to..

emotional stress, physical stress/pain, drugs or caffeine

25

nervoscope is what type of instrument?

relative skin temperature instrument

26

nervoscope assists in

objectifying neurologic dysfunction

27

nervoscope is primarily used for

segmental break analysis

28

can the nervoscope be used for pattern analysis?

yes, but only if it is connected to a recording unit

29

when using the nervoscope, what level should your sensitivity switch be set to?

LOW or medium

30

heat swing

gradual sweeping deflection of needle reflecting gentle thermal shift over MULTIPLE neurological fields as a part of normal physiologic function
