global aphasia
*prevents effective communication *produce few recognizable words *unable to read or write
*speech production disorder *mm weakness
*speech production disorder *disrupted motor planning *mm usually work
frontal lesion
*primary motor/premotor cortex *executive functions impaired
parietal lesion
*sensory *body in space *depth perception *damage here = neglect
temporal lesion

cerebellar lesion
*balance and coordination
agitation: disinhibition
*undirected, self-stimulatory behaviors *impulsive *demanding *distractive *inappropriate language
agitation: aggression
*directed at external stimulus *constant *severe *physical *prevents care
agitation: lability
*directed at internal stimulus *rapid, loud talking *sudden mood changes *restlessness *interferes with care
peripheral vestibular deficits
*unilateral *bilateral *fluctuating *BPPV
central deficits

balance lines of defense
*ankle *hip *step *suspensatory *reaching
nystagmus diagnosis
*>60 s = cupulolythiasis *<60 s = canal lythiasis *nonstop = central problem

*medical management *balance exercises *pt education
BPPV treatment
*canalith repositioning exercises *libertory/semont procedure *roll maneuver *brandt-daroff exercises
why use airsplint
*stabilize jt *allow WB before control returns *control unwanted movements in a limb *add consistent sensory input to limb while working *ease of positioning *dec tone temporarily
