With this type of Dementia, the symptoms can be very different due to how badly the blood vessel are damaged after having the stroke. ii. In the scholarly article, Risk Factors for Vascular Dementia and Alzheimer Disease, written by Phillip B Gorelick and publish in October 2004. It mentions that Vascular Dementia have terrible effects on the brain and your cognitive abilities. iii.
In this more common form — called non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) — new blood vessels aren't growing (proliferating). When one has non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy, the walls of the blood vessels in retina weaken. Tiny bulges (microaneurysms) protrude from the vessel walls of the smaller vessels, sometimes leaking fluid and blood into the retina. Larger retinal vessels can begin to dilate and become irregular in diameter, as well. Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy can progress from mild to severe, as more blood vessels become blocked.
When it comes to observation of Body language, it involves minute observation of subtle expressions and minute gestures as well which may not be observed at the first go. It is said that the things which we donot want to convey might get conveyed by our body language. If an individual is expert in studying body language he/she may notice deception, nervousness or boredom or insecurity very quickly and be an asset for the society. According to studies by UCLA professor Albert Mehrabian, body language accounts for 55% of a first impression; 38% comes from tone of voice; 7% comes from our
In our study, the mean maximal IOP raise was less in LMA group when compared with ETT group during intubation. The variation in IOP at different time points was greater in ETT group when compared to LMA group. The hemodynamic changes correlated with changes in IOP in both the groups. In most of the cases in our study, tracheal intubation produced a raise in HR, MAP whereas LMA insertion was not associated with rise in these
When people communicate among themselves, majority of the exchange is done by body movements or language this is known as non verbal communication. Some people use this as a way to enhance the message being sent to the receiver. “We express our overall style of communicating nonverbally. In effect, nonverbal communication functions as the language of relationships” ( Kuparinen 1992).Some non verbal communicators can be dictated different by another culture in some areas. The differences vary among cultures in some areas.
The consciousness that affects the size and mass effect must be operated in order to decrease the intracranial pressure and prevent death. Intraparenchymal hematoma posttraumatic Patients with diffuse axonal injury is a problem unique in that traumatic damage is microscopic and not visible on CT scanning. Diffuse axonal axonal injury difuzaInjurie Patients with diffuse axonal injuries have stretched severe brain damage. The goal of treatment in these cases is to prevent other secondary intracranial lesions increased intracranial pressure and cerebral edema decrease. Intracranial pressure monitoring practice in patients with diffuse axonal injury and GCS under 8.
70% of CP cases have spastic cerebral palsy which is the most common type and is caused by damage to the brain’s motor cortex. Spastic cerebral palsy can affect either one side of the body, commonly known as spastic hemiplegia, or both sides of the body. Spastic diplegia causes stiffness mostly in the legs, the arms may be affected, but not as severely. (Spastic Cerebral Palsy.., n.d, p.1) Both of these types involves stiff movements that are exaggerated, caused by increased muscle tone. It causes difficulty preforming tasks such as getting dressed, walking and handling objects.
 The slight variation in the perception of time in different languages could make a big difference, in this case, it could affect perception of the aging process. A study performed by Professor Athanasopoulos of Lancaster University once again proves the phenomenon of code-switching and its effect on our perception of time. In this experiment, he prompted bilinguals with a word in a certain language and asked them to estimate time as it passed, and the results were crystal clear. When prompted with the English word, bilinguals automatically responded, perceiving time as distance. When prompted with the Spanish, they responded perceiving time as volume.
Hill et al (1957) found that following a temporal lobectomy, improvements were reported in patients behaviour including reduced hostility, violence and inappropriate sexual behaviour in addition to increased empathy. In other words, psychopathic symptoms present before the lobectomy had decreased significantly thus changing the psychopath label. If this is combined with Harlow’s Phineas Gage case study is becomes apparent that psychopathy has a biological
If you don’t already know what Alzheimer's is, it’s a disease that results in memory loss and even confusion, due to the loss of connections between nerve cells in the brain and the death of these nerve cells. APOE is actually one of the many genes that can directly influence your chances of getting Alzheimer’s. There are actually three types of the APOE gene: APOE2, APOE3, and APOE4. APOE4 is actually one of the types that increase your chances for Alzheimer’s and lowers the actual age of onset. When testing for Alzheimer’s, it's not all that different than if you were doing it with a different disease.
An incomplete injury at the cervical level will invariably cause central cord syndrome. The occurrence of central cord syndrome is much higher amongst people who sustain hyperextension injury with the presence of degenerative change in the cervical spine, much like Mr X. The characteristic weakness in the arms compared to the legs is due to the pattern of lamination of the spinothalamic and corticospinal tracts being more medial to the central canal. Anterior cord syndrome is characterised by loss of pain and temperature sensation, and motor function, below the level of the injury whilst touch and proprioception are preserved. This syndrome is caused by damage inflicted to the anterior aspect of the spinal cord or as a result of decreased vascular supply.
Newman et al 2009 found that the chronic demyelination of can have an excitatory effect on the spinal cord and focal lesions found in the spinal cord are common in early onset signs of MS. Other less visible and subjective symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis reported by this group include fatigue, pain, depression, sleep disturbances and reported decreased quality of life. Initial symptoms include blurred or double vision in which the Optic and Oculomotor neurons of the brain are affected. Women are qualitatively diagnosed more often than men and Newman et al. 2009 assessed the pain perception of this group. Pain is highly subjective and an important contributor to the associated decreased quality of life of persons with Multiple Sclerosis limiting their work and social interactions .
Leukoaraiosis, viewed as cerebral white matter hyperintensities (WMH) on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or low attenuation on computed tomographic scanning (CT), is common in patients with dementia. They have found a failure of elimination of interstitial fluid (ISF) from white matter, particularly connected with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). Pathological studies and discovery of expanded perivascular spaces (PVS) by MRI in the white matter. Whereas, failure of eradication of ISF from the aging brain specifies failure in the disposal of soluble metabolites from the brain, where consequently there is a failure of homeostasis of the neuronal setting with significant consequences for the pathogenesis of dementia (Weller et al.,
