Flashcards in Instrumentation Deck (48)
instrumentation satisfies which component of the PART system?
T - TISSUE TONE
instrumentation is assessing?
vasomotor function, dermal microvasculature, sympathetic nervous system (smooth muscle regulation, tunica media of vessel, function without an antagionist)
what is the purpose of instrumentation?
objectify neurologic function, target area for further assessment, WHEN to and when NOT to adjust
nervoscope tells you...
WHEN TO ADJUST
tytron c-3000 gathers information from?
first 5 mm of epidermis
tytron c-3000 is what type of system?
paraspinal thermal imaging system (infrared technology, relative skin temperature, direct skin temperature)
tytron c-3000 is primarily used for which type of analysis?
can the tytron c-3000 be used for break analysis?
yes, but it's not as effective
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)
VSC associated with tytron c-3000?
neuropathology (dermal thermoregulation) and histopathology (cytological/inflammation/edema)
full spine scan using tytron c-3000 should take?
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)
tytron c-3000: scan commences at...
tytron c-3000: scan terminates at...
base of occiput
which speed should you keep while running a scan using the tytron c-3000?
speed of 1 second/segment
tytron c-3000: every scan that is run is accompanied by a...
mastoid fossa reading
mastoid fossa reading provides more specific information about?
upper cervical complex (occ-c1-c2*)
mastoid fossa reading commence by...
pressing "F" key
mastoid fossa reading
right barrel in right fossa, right barrel again in left fossa
with a mastoid fossa reading what would indicated clinical significance?
0.5 degrees C or greater
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)
which is it important to space our scans involved with tytron c-3000?
body needs time to adapt
three general scan types for the doctor to consider:
pattern, adaptive, stress
stress could be due to..
emotional stress, physical stress/pain, drugs or caffeine
nervoscope is what type of instrument?
relative skin temperature instrument
nervoscope assists in
objectifying neurologic dysfunction
nervoscope is primarily used for
segmental break analysis
can the nervoscope be used for pattern analysis?
yes, but only if it is connected to a recording unit
when using the nervoscope, what level should your sensitivity switch be set to?
LOW or medium
