Glossary of mobility
Other Decks By This User
- Name 4 general categories that can affect mobility.
- Trauma, disease, normal aging, health events
- Describe the effects of mobility on the urinary sys
- increased blood flow to kidneys, efficiency to maintain fluid and acid-base balance, and efficiency in excreting wastes
- Describe the effects of immobility on the urinary sys
- increase in urinary stasis (uti's), risk for renal calculi and decreased bladder muscle tone.
- Describe the psychological effects of mobility.
- more energy, vitality, general well-being improved, better sleep, better appearance, positive health behaviors, endorphins released for sense of well being, better posture.
- Describe the psychological effects of immobility
- increased sense of powerlessness, decreased self-concept, social interaction and sensory stimulation. Increased risk for depression and an altered sleep-wake pattern
- Describe the effects of mobility on skin
- improved tone, color, turgor, circulation and perfusion
- Describe the effects of immobility on the skin
- increased risk for skin breakdown and ulcers, decrease in vit D, turgor, and proprioceptor abilities
- Describe the effects of mobility on the cardiovascular sys
- increased efficiency, heart rate, blood flow, and oxygenation to all parts of body. Decreased resting heart rate and BP.
- Describe the effects of immobility on the cardiovascular sys
- increased cardiac workload, decreased stroke vol, size of heart decreases, lf ventricle decreases, increased risk from DVT, orthostatic hypotension
- Describe the effects of mobility on the metabolic sys
- increased efficiency of metabolic sys, body temp regulation, resistance to physical stress, sympathetic nervous sys, glucose production, regulation of fluids and electrolytes
- Describe the effects of immobility on the metabolic sys
- metabolic rate drops, decreased protein and nitrogen breakdown. Decreased anabolic rate and increased catabolic rate, peripheral glucose uptake declines, circadian rhythm cycle is affected, decreased immune sys
- Describe the effects of mobility on the musclarskeletal sys
- increase muscle efficiency, nerve transmission, coordination, posture and flexibility
- Describe the effects of immobility on the musclarskeletal sys
- decreased muscle size, tone, strength, flexibility, endurance and stability of skeleton. Increased risk of osteoporosis, contracture formation, fractures, and tissue breakdown.
- Describe the effects of mobility on the respiratory sys
- increased depth, rate, gas exchange, rate of CO2 excretion and illness prevention
- describe the effects of immobility on the respiratory sys
- lung vol, tidal vol, ventil/perfusion ratio, and chest/lung expansion changes. decreases in comliance, risk for alveoli collapse, gas exchange, bacterial buildup and hypoxemia
- Describe the effects of mobility on the GI sys
- increased appetite and intestinal tone
- Describe the effects of immobility on the GI sys
- disturbance in appetite, altered protein metabolism, weight gain, slow intestinal movement and altered digestion and utilization of nutrients
- What is the lovetts scale?
- a test that grades muscle strength from 0-no evidence of muscle contractility to 5- normal with unimpaired ROM and full resistance
- What is the Functional Independence Measure (FIM)?
- a test that indicates ability. Attempts to quantify what the person actually does, whatever the diagnosis or impairment. eg. ADL's, sphincter control, cognition etc.
- What is the Gordon's Functional Health Patterns test?
- A test for musclarskeletal assessment. Usually used in rehab measures and grades from 0-4
