iii. According to the Mayo Clinic’s article, Frontotemporal Dementia, says that it is normally misdiagnosed as a psychiatric problem and it states that this type of dementia normally occurs at a younger age than Alzheimer’s does and it is commonly between the ages of 40 and 45. B. Symptoms i. Many people who have FTD have changes in their behavior, become impulsive, and lose their ability to speak.
Psychoanalytic Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) is reflected as the forefathers of psychology and founder of psychoanalysis. Based on Freud’s theories, psychoanalytic therapy is a type of treatment that tends to observe at the background from early childhood to perceive if these situations have affected the individual’s life, or to current issues. (Counselling Directory, 2014) This therapy discovers how the unconscious mind empowers thoughts and behaviors, with the purpose of offering insight and resolution to the person seeking therapy. This form of therapy is a long-term treatment whereby it can take duration up to weeks, months or even years depending on the complexity of the patient being explored. There are six key concepts of psychoanalytic
The used the World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview to assess psychological impairment, parental care and other factors that could contribute to difficulties later in life. They found that younger a child was at the time of loss, the more likely they were to develop mental health problems including depression, anxiety, mood and substance abuse issues. The study also revealed that family conditions after the death played a significant role. Children living in single-parent and/or low-income households are more likely to exhibit problem behaviors and depressive symptoms and are less likely to display social competence than are children who grow up in more fortunate circumstances (Moore, et al.,
By looking at Mr Jensen’s post-operative vital assessment data, his hypovolemia is able to be classified as a stage two. Stage two hypovolemia is characterized by the loss of 15-30% of the total blood volume, or between 750 and 1500 mL. By this stage, cardiac output cannot be maintained by arterial constriction, resulting in tachycardia (>100bpm), increased respiratory rate (over 20 breaths/minute) and a slight decrease in blood pressure. The patient’s pulse may become narrow and skin becomes excessively pale The patient can present symptoms of anxiety and feeling restless. The capillary refill may be delayed and the urine output is reduced to 20-30 mL/h (Brown & Edwards, 2013).
INTRO/BACKGROUND Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, a neurodegenerative condition in which an individual may experience executive dysfunction, impaired memory, depression, apathy, poor impulse control, suicidal tendencies, and ultimately dementia, has come to attention in recent years (Baugh et al. 2012). Currently the disease is not diagnosable until the individual has passed away and symptoms often mimic those of other neurodegenerative conditions. With that being said, CTE is a problem that has no way of being detected, let alone a cure. As CTE is being more extensively researched, it has been found that the cause is much broader than documented concussions.
However, as someone ages, the intervertebral discs shrink in size and results in excessive curvature of the spine. In addition, “tumors or tuberculosis of the vertebral bodies and ankylosing spondylitis” also contribute to kyphosis (Frazier, 2013). Lastly, osteoporosis, a bone thinning disorder, causes bones to become weak and brittle and results in compression fractures of the vertebrae. Osteoporosis usually occurs in older people, such as the postmenopausal woman. In general, the prevalence of kyphosis of the general population is roughly between 0.4% to 8.3% (Kyphosis,
The effects of sleep deprivation can be separated into two parts, the short term and the long term. Mood, learning capacity, making judgement, risk of accidents are affected by the lack of sleep in the short term. The long term effects however, can lead to severe illnesses and even early death. (Harvard Medical School, n.d.) Previous researches already have shown that sleep deprivation, be it in acute total or chronic partial, has a negative impact on attention and working memory. Total sleep deprivation limits cognitive abilities of a person.
Type 2 of Gaucher Disease, also known as acute neuronopathic Gaucher Disease, affects the central nervous system and symptoms are faster to appear. This type affects a human from infancy and is very life threatening. Humans that are diagnosed with type 2 usually do not live past infancy. In contrast of type 2, type 3 of Gaucher Disease (chronic neuronopathic Gaucher Disease) is slower and symptoms show later in childhood. Type 2 and 3 share similar signs and symptoms and they include abnormal eye movement and growth, seizures, enlarged spleen or liver as well as brain problems.
The moderate decline stage of the disease is stage four. “In stage four of Alzheimer’s disease clear cut symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease is apparent” (“What Are The 7 Stages of Alzheimer’s Disease?”). The signs and symptoms of the disease are more apparent at this stage and throughout the next 3 stages as the disease progresses. Family and friends can now see that the person with Alzheimer’s is having trouble with simple arithmetic, the person no longer is able to pay and manage his or her finances, and he or she can no longer recall certain details of his/her life history (“What Are The 7 Stages of Alzheimer’s
As adolescences enter adulthood, they enter a long transitional period, often known as “emerging adult”. This transitional period takes place over a range of 18 to 25 years old (Santrock, 2013). At this stage, emerging adults are still in exploration in the various aspect of life such as the career path they are interested in, defining their identities and a style of living they would want to adopt. Thus, adolescences who are in transition will be caught with many intense changes and will experience major life events that are all of great importance. According to Jeffery Arnett (2006), emerging adult can be defined by the 5 key characteristics, namely: Identity exploration, Instability, Self-Focus, Feeling in-between, and the Age of possibilities where
