What are the work related musculoskeletal problems among anaesthetists?
Are there any studies done on musculoskeletal problems among anaesthetists?
What are they?
Lacerations and glass splinters when opening drug ampoules are a common occurrence. Where possible, plastic ampoules or plastic ‘ampoule snappers’ should be used. Repetitive strain injury, previously associated with the holding of facemasks for prolonged periods, is increasingly rare after the introduction of the laryngeal mask airway. The first metacarpo-phalyngeal joint is the commonest joint to be affected by osteoarthritis in any dextrous manual employment. Hand ventilation, opening ampoules, drawing up and injecting drugs are all actions that predispose to the development of this condition (+ info
How much would a musculoskeletal examination cost?
I missed the date at which my school was offering the examination for $25. Now, I have to go and get it done by the family doctor and I'm not sure how much it is going to cost. Oh, and it's furlough days so that means nobody is picking up the phones or answering their e-mails from school. So, I'm pretty much screwed. If I don't get my musculoskeletal examination done, that means I can't participate in any sports. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!

What do medical doctors think of legit chiropractors that only treat musculoskeletal conditions?
I am a chiropractor that only focuses on conditions involved with the musculoskeletal system. I find it hard to legitimize myself when the next chiro down the street claims to cure cancer, etc... I would like feedback from MD's on how they feel about legitimate chiropractors....Thanks
I am fine with "reformed" chiropractic who deal only with MSK problems. Chiro is at least as effective as any other modalities for MSK, mostly back.
NONE of us is very good with back pain, it is part of the human condition as we haven't adequately evolved to walk upright yet.
My question would be since the majority of chiropractors still believe in the woo...how can you really stay in that profession? (+ info
What are the risk of high abnormalities and pregnancy?
Im 19 and i hav a pap smear done a couple months ago which came back posible high abnormalities. Im booked for a calapsy in august.
I was wondering what are the risk of having high abnormalities during pregancy.
There will be no risk if you go and get this problem sorted out. You shouldn't be thinking about pregnancy at 19 though. I can't imagine why if your pap came back normal it took them a few months to book you for a colposcopy. They booked mine with in a few days. they went in, did their biopsies and stuff and nothing was wrong. I've had 3 children with no abnormalities. (+ info
What are the odds to having a down syndrome baby with 2 ultrasound abnormalities?
I went in for my ultrasound at 19 wks and found out the baby has echoing in the heart ventricles and a cyst at base of brain. Individually, they would not be concerned, but because 2 abnormalities are present I need to go in for a level 2 ultrasound. What are my odds for having a down syndrome baby at 30 with these abnormalities being present?
I am 34 and had 2 abnormalities on my son's ultrasound. He had an echogenci foci (white spot on the heart) and a dilated kidney. He is a perfect 3 month old. 2 abnormalities is not unusual at all. Try not to worry. I know that's hard because I've been there. (+ info
want to understand the link between chromosomal abnormalities in parents and recurrent miscarriages?
I learn that one of the reasons for recurrent miscarriage of a pregnancy is the chromsomal abnormalities found in atleast one parent. I have the following questions:
1. Does this problem always result in a miscarriage or are there chances of delivering a live baby ?
2. If it results in a child-birth, are there chances of the baby born with abnormalities ?
3. Is this problem curable/treatable ?
1. The problem does not always end in a miscarriage. Most chrom abnormalities that result in a miscarriage happen before 6 weeks of pregnancy.
2. 1 out of 150 babies is born with a chromosomal abnormality. These types of abnormalities occur when the structure of a chromosome is damaged or the number of chromosomes is off (extra or too few).
3. Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Patau's syndrome (trisomy 13), and Edward's syndrome (trisomy 18) are common chromosomal abnormalites. Prenatal testing, like amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling, can be done before the birth and I have heard that they can now go in and remove the extra chromosomes or fix them which would fix the abnormality but most of them are non-curable and non-treatable.

I've been searching on search engines for a few hours, so if anyone know some off of the top of their head...it would be greatly appreciated!

Does every newborn baby have a blood test done to test for chromosome abnormalities?
I am just curious because my daughter is 3 and she seems to have alot of the traits for the triple X chromosome syndrome. But if they test for chromosome abnormalities when they are born with bloodwork then I will know that it is impossible. I am pretty sure they do but I figured I would ask on here. I will call the doctor as a last resort but I figured I would try here first. Thanks so much!!!!
I think it may depend upon the state you live in. In Wisconsin they do a newborn screening which is a blood test for all kinds of genetic or chromosomal abnormalities. I am not sure if every state requires this. You may want to call your pediatrician and ask if it was done on your daughter and tell him/her your concerns. (+ info
What promotes a healthy musculoskeletal system in old age?
Please addess risk factors for arthritis, osteoporosis, and falls.
Kay, this sounds as if it is an assignment for some class. As one gets older there are a number of things that happen to the musculoskeletal system. For most people, aging brings about a slowing of things. The physical jobs that were performed in younger days are now being done by someone else. People as they age prefer more sedentary types of jobs and with that comes a loss of muscular size and strength. This is called sarcopenia. So as one loses muscle mass weakness ensues. The weaker one is the more likely they are to avoid activities that will need muscular strength. This cycle has an effect on bones as well as muscles. Wolf's law states that bone is only as strong as the stress that is placed on it. So more sedentary people tend to have weaker bones. Women are more prone to osteoporosis than men but it is found in both. The weaker that one is the more likely they are to fall. The reason for this is that the ability to catch ones balance is dependent upon the strength of the muscles. Weak muscles mean more falls. As for the degenerative joint changes they are going to be in just about everyone. The question is the extent of these changes. A less active live style means that there is a better chance of adding weight on and this is a stress on the back, hips, and knees. The more weight the more stress and degeneration. Changes in posture take place and this leads to unnatural stresses on bones that also leads to degeneration. So what promotes a healthy lifestyle is to maintain an active lifestyle, keep ones weight down, do some resistive movements during the day, engage in activities that cause an interaction with others, and enjoy yourself.
