Stop The Stroke: An Analysis Into The Role Of Gender And Pmh In Stroke Symptom Recognition​, Shuaibahmed M. Arab, Kelsey Baker

MEDI 8127 Scholarly Activities Pre-Clerkship

A cerebral vascular accident, also known as a stroke, is an event in which blood flow to a brain region is disrupted. This disruption leads to loss of perfusion which results in brain tissue death.

The best combat against a stroke and its long-term effects/death is timely interventions. This requires quick symptom recognition by patients and presentation to an emergency department. However, stroke remains the 5th most common cause of CVD-related death. With an incidence of 40% across the United States, stroke events have been identified as an actionable goal by Healthy People 2030; with the goal of decreasing ...

Assessment Of Trauma-Informed Care Knowledge Among Caregivers In An Inpatient Mental Health Unit, Katie Rhea, Loni Conley, Jeremy Williams, Kathryn Wiltfong, Teresa Bigand

2022 Providence Nurse Research Conference

Background: Research suggests exposure to traumatic events is extremely common. Furthermore, risk of developing chronic health conditions or engaging harmful behaviors such as substance use later in life increases with more frequent exposure to traumatic events, especially during childhood. Best evidence recommends delivery of health care using a Trauma Informed Care (TIC) approach to improve outcomes such as anxiety or depression. This care approach guides healthcare providers on interactions with patients centered on the tenets of (1) safety, (2) trustworthiness, (3) peer support, (4) collaboration, (5) empowerment and choice, and (6) cultural, historical, and sex issues.

Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics Faculty Papers

Age is a risk factor for a host of poor outcomes following traumatic brain injury (TBI), with some evidence suggesting that age is also a source of excess disability. We tested the extent to which age moderates the effect of injury severity on functional trajectories over 15 years post injury. Data from 11,442 participants from the 2020 National Institute of Disability and Independent Living Rehabiitation Research (NIDILRR) Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems (TBIMS) National Dataset were analyzed using linear mixed effects models. Injury severity was operationally defined using a composite of Glasgow Coma Scale scores, structural imaging findings, and ...

Post-Intensive Care Syndrome Prevention And Detection In Covid-19 Patients, Bethany Sloane Melega 2022 University of Lynchburg

Post-Intensive Care Syndrome Prevention And Detection In Covid-19 Patients, Bethany Sloane Melega

Student Scholar Showcase

COVID-19 has impacts on patient health beyond the hospital. The trauma that patients, and families of patients, can experience during an admission to an intensive care unit (ICU) can last long after discharge from the ICU and the hospital in general. The psychological and physical impacts of ICU hospitalization can cause patients to experience Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS). PICS is the culmination of symptoms that persist after a critical illness that involve all aspects of a patient’s physical and mental well-being and can significantly affect family life and increase recovery time. Due to the strict personal-protective equipment (PPE ...

Does Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Reduce Surgical Site Infection Rates In The Trauma Patient? A Southeast Asian Experience., Chenghan Wu, Kelvin Kah Ho Lor, Eugene Weiren Yang, Allan Shao Hui Ng

BioMedicine

Abstract

Introduction:

The trauma patient has an increased susceptibility to postoperative surgical site infection (SSI). There is a lack of studies in the literature investigating the rates of SSI in minimally invasive spine (MIS) surgery for trauma patients with thoracolumbar fractures with other concomitant injuries. We aim to investigate if MIS surgery for trauma patients reduces the incidence of SSI through a less invasive approach and smaller surgical incision.

Methods:

A case series of 30 trauma patients who underwent MIS surgery for thoracolumbar spine fractures at our center were followed up for a year. The primary outcome measured was the ...

Visual Rehabilitation As A Treatment Tool For Collegiate Athletes Post-Mtbi To Improve Return To Sport Outcomes, Maria Asimakis

Featured Student Work

Introduction: Fifty percent of the 46 000 concussions seen in Canada are sports related, with post-concussive syndrome (PCS) impacting up to 30% of those patients. Individuals who experience PCS will often report headaches, dizziness, and blurred vision with visual disturbances reported in 20-85% depending on the nature of the visual deficit. A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and results from an external insult leading to axonal shearing of nerve fibers, which are responsible for the signs and symptoms experienced. Current best practice in treatment involves initial rest followed by increasing aerobic activity as well as visual ...


A Literature Resource For Those Supporting Patients With Autism Spectrum Disorder And Cancer, Kaylee James 2022 Eastern Kentucky University

A Literature Resource For Those Supporting Patients With Autism Spectrum Disorder And Cancer, Kaylee James

Psychology Doctoral Specialization Projects

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts both social interaction and patterns of behavior. ASD is rooted in genetic, biological, and environmental causes. Cancer begins when cells grow out of control and there is also a genetic and biological cause of cancer. There is an overlap between the genetic and biological causes of ASD and cancer. As a result, evidence supports an increased risk of developing some types of cancer as well as protective factors for some times of cancer for individuals with ASD. Therefore, individuals with ASD may be at a heightened risk to develop cancer ...
