  • Axonal Nerve Injuries

    1665 Words  | 7 Pages

    Introduction Nerve injury is not fatal but can severely impact quality of life. Peripheral nerve injuries occur in an estimated 2-3% of all patients admitted to a Level 1 trauma center (1) and are commonly caused by trauma to the upper limbs. The economic impact of nerve injuries can be large with operative costs, hospital charges, rehabilitation visits, and lost time at work. Only subtle improvements to peripheral nerve repair have been made recently, and our current knowledge of nerve physiology

  • Cranial Nerves

    Cranial Nerves The human body is a unique and fascinating entity. There is not much notice taken of the features the human body is capable of. The brain is necessary to perform day-to-day actions, such as the ability to speak, and see amongst us. This brain is made up of simple mater (Pia mater, Arachnoid mater, Dura mater) and the cranial surface to protect the brain. We live our daily lives without acknowledging the importance of this organ, the brain, unless you’re a medical student of

  • Stimulation Recording in Frog Sciatic Nerve

    Stimulation Recording in Frog Sciatic Nerve Methods: Dissection of the Gastrocnemius Muscle and the Sciatic Nerve In this experiment the frog sciatic nerve was used; the frogs were carefully handled and deeply anesthetized in order to be permanently unconscious. Pithing was used to destroy the brain pain center making the frog insensitive to pain. The gastrocnemius muscle was dissected and the sciatic nerve was carefully removed. The frog ringer solution was prepared. The ingredients used included

    The fifth cranial nerve out of 12 is known as the trigeminal nerve. Cranial nerves are located in the brain and each have a different function. The trigeminal nerve is located in between the oculomotor nerve and the facial nerve. The trigeminal nerve performs sensor functions that involve the teeth, tongue, nose, and eyes and is covered by a myelin sheath. A myelin sheath is the protective coating that is usually found around nerves. Trigeminal neuralgia also known as TN, is a painful disease that

  • The Brain and Cranial Nerves Essay

    The Brain and Cranial Nerves One of the most complex and fascinating things in the human body is the brain. The body is "capable of almost everything, but it would not be possible, without the brain receiving information, and analyzing the information." The brain is aware of its surroundings, via input from the spinal cord and cranial nerves. Cranial nerves with sensory functions allow us to smell and see. Nerves with both motor and sensory functions are responsible for everything from tasting

  • ##erve Resonance, Influence And Nerve Importance

    Nerve injuries of the shoulder are an unusual cause of shoulder pain and they result from a variety of causes including trauma (1). Traditionally, the diagnosis of muscle denervation was based on clinical findings, electromyography, and nerve conduction studies. However, electro-physiologic studies do not determine exactly the site of muscle denervation (2). Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has an important role in detection and characterization of pathologic conditions of skeletal muscles that cause

  • Facial Nerve Tumour : Diagnostic Reasoning

    2274 Words  | 10 Pages

    Facial Nerve Tumour Diagnostic Reasoning Facial never tumours are exceedingly rare (Marzo, Zender & Leonetti, 2009). These tumours present with facial twitching, hearing loss, dizziness, loss of balance, and unilateral facial weakness (Marzo, Zender & Leonetti, 2009). These are strikingly similar symptoms that Ingrid presented with. Major differences include a slow onset of symptoms and the facial weakness is intermittent and recurring (Marzo, Zender & Leonetti, 2009). It would need to be taken into

  • Pediatrics: Cranial Nerve Examination Essay

    2298 Words  | 10 Pages

    Oculomotor (III), trochlear (IV), Abducens (VI) cranial nerves Although each of these nerves control separate extraocular muscles, they are normally examined together due to their close functional interrelationships. • Look Similar to other cranial nerve examination, start with inspection of the eyes. Look at - The position of the head position: If diplopia is present, the head turned or tilted to minimize double vision. - Inspect for ptosis and eye position. - Ask the child to look at an

  • The Nerve Of Nerve Conduction

    1464 Words  | 6 Pages

    Nerve conduction studies are often utilized by clinician to diagnose patients suffering neuromuscular diseases that cannot be determined by neurological examination alone. Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) measures the speed of conduction of an electrical impulse that travels through a nerve. It is an expression of the physiological state of the nerve itself. In order to determine the NCV of the Ulnar nerve, a stimulator is initially used to depolarize the nerve. A small electrical stimulus is applied
