7 Written questions

6 Multiple choice questions

  1. -If peripheral sensory information is completely absent, CNS neurons in the nociceptive pathway become abnormally active
  2. -involves one nerve (median nerve or ulna nerve compression)
  3. -occurs in demyelinated areas - GB Syndrome
  4. -avultion of afferent roots (MVA neck flexion injury that causes avultion of brachial plexus dorsal roots); causes burning pain in the area of sensory loss
  5. -cutting of a dorsal sensory nerve root
  6. -tenderness/stiffness of muscles, aching pain, increased stress/sllep disorders, secondary hyperalsia, allodynia; abnormal activation of pain matrix with amplification of signals

6 True/False questions

  1. 1) PNS-If peripheral sensory information is completely absent, CNS neurons in the nociceptive pathway become abnormally active

          

  2. Phantom Limb Pain-change in pain etiology from tissue to physiologic impair-
    ment including muscle guarding, abnormal movement, disuse, decreased endurance of back/abdominal muscles;
    more area of pain matrix are activated and malfunctioning;
    can also see depression, sleep disturbance, preoccupat.
    with pain decreases activity, fatigue, emotional distress

          

  3. Polyneuropathies-involve more than one nerve, such as diabetic neuropathy and Guillian Barre

          

  4. Sympathectamy- partial excision of synpathetic nerves or ganglia

          

  5. Cordotomy-cutting of a dorsal sensory nerve root

          

  6. Pain Assessment-increases circulation th compression of tissue which decreases ischemic pain, a deficiency of blood (ischemia) results in a deficiency of 02 (hypoxia) which cause pain in tissue; pain from cramp is due to squeezing of capillaries & decreasing blood supply; when blood flow is interrupted,
    pain-stimulating chemicals accumulate; applied heat dilates blood vessels, increasing blood flow/02 and decrea
    sing the concentration of pain-stimulating substances; massage also simulates A-beta fibers thus activating the gating contrl mechanism
