Answer:

Physical therapists play a vital role on the interdisciplinary acute care team. PT's assess a patient's mobility, make recommendations regarding assistive devices and discharge planning, and prevent negative affects of immobility and bed rest. Physical therapists can also assist with airway clearance techniques, cardiac rehab following a heart attack, and help patients undergoing cancer treatments maintain functional mobility.

Answer:

Homeostasis is the bodies ability to maintain a steady state condition that allows for life to continue. The bodies ability to regulate temperature and blood volume are two examples of homeostasis. The bodies primary method for maintaining homeostasis is through the endocrine system and hormones released primarily from the pituitary gland.

Question:

A patient comes to you complaining of inability to completely close her eyelid, altered taste sensation, inability to smile, and dry eyes. The patient does not demonstrate slurred speech and she is oriented x 3. What anatomical structure is most likely impaired and how should you treat this patient.

Answer:

The patient's symptoms are consistent with Bell's Palsy, which is pathology of cranial nerve VII, the facial nerve. Because the patient does not have slurred speech and is oriented x 3, we do not suspect a CVA at this time. All of the listed symptoms are related to the functional of the facial nerve. Treatment includes anti-inflammatory medication and electrical stimulation along the facial nerve distribution.
