Topic: OBSESSION

Today Collab Topic (BT) Given by Rashmika garu, Uppal Facility

Topic: OBSESSION

*Obsessions*
Obsessions are persistent and often intrusive thoughts, ideas, or impulses. Most people know that their obsessions are excessive but feel unable to control them. 

*Types of Obsession*
*Perfectionism*
People with perfectionistic obsessions are overwhelmed by a fear of making mistakes, doing something wrong, or leaving things out of place. 

*Relational*
Relationship-focused obsessions involve overwhelming doubts and worries about the “rightness” of a romantic relationship or partner. Some researchers refer to this kind of obsession as relationship obsessive-compulsive disorder (ROCD).

*Contamination*
Contamination obsessions may involve fears of physical contamination (such as with dirt, bacteria, germs, chemicals, or illness) or moral contamination (such as with a person, place, or idea that is perceived as “bad” or distasteful).

*Causing Harm*
Some people with OCD experience obsessions related to causing harm to themselves or others.

*Intrusive Thoughts*
Intrusive thoughts are typically related to something frightening, dangerous, inappropriate, or repulsive.

Causes
*Genetics:* According to twin studies, about 45%–65% of OCD symptoms can be attributed to genetic factors.
*Trauma:* Experiencing trauma, such as abuse or betrayal, is a significant risk factor for OCD. Additionally, many people with OCD also have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
*Upbringing:* There is some correlation between having had an overprotective parent and the development of OCD. Parents who are anxious and/or have obsessions themselves may pass them on to their children, partly through genetics and partly through the home environment and learned behavior.
*Stress:* Studies suggest that stressful life events, especially during childhood, often play an important role in the development of obsessions.
*Brain abnormalities:* Imaging studies conducted on people with OCD have revealed hyperactivity in areas of the brain that are involved in impulse control, emotional regulation, and decision-making.
*Other conditions:* An estimated 69% of people with OCD have one or more comorbid (coexisting) conditions. These include mental health conditions, such as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and major depressive disorder (MDD), as well as tic disorders like Tourette’s syndrome (TS).

*Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder* is the most common mental health condition that involves obsessions. However, some obsessive symptoms may also be present in other mental health conditions, such as:

*Schizophrenia:* A mental illness that causes disturbances in thinking, behavior, and perception.
*Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD):* A condition that involves a long-lasting, overwhelming preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and control.

 *How to Manage Obsession*
Obsessions may feel like they’re out of your control, but there are many ways to feel more empowered. Here are some ways to cope with obsessive thoughts:

*Find support:* Participating in peer support groups for people with OCD or intrusive thoughts can help you feel less alone and connect you to valuable resources.
*Avoid drugs and alcohol:* Many people with OCD also have a substance use disorder (SUD). In turn, excessive alcohol use worsens OCD symptoms. If you have OCD, it may be best to limit your intake of drugs and alcohol as much as possible.
*Practice good sleep habits:* Insomnia often exacerbates intrusive thoughts. To improve your sleep quality, practice healthy sleep habits like going to bed at the same time every night and turning off your phone an hour before bedtime.

Topic: Miller Fisher Syndrome

6/5/2023 10:24:35 AM

Today Collab Topic (OT) Given by Haritha garu, Uppal Facility

Topic: Miller Fisher Syndrome:

Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) is a rare disorder that causes your immune system to attack nerves, usually starting in your face. It can affect the nerves that control your eye muscles, so you may have trouble moving your eyes. MFS also can cause problems with your coordination and reflexes. Symptoms usually follow a viral or bacterial infection.

CAUSES:

MFS can develop if your immune system reacts to an infection and mistakenly attacks nerves while it’s trying to fight the infection. Viral and bacterial infections that may trigger MFS include:

*Campylobacter infection.
*Haemophilus *influenzae.
*Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
*Mononucleosis (Epstein-Barr virus).
*Zika virus.

SYMPTOMS:

*Changes in the way you walk.
*Double vision (diplopia) or blurred vision.
*Drooping eyelids (ptosis) or facial *paralysis (difficultly moving muscles in your face).
*Loss of tendon reflexes in your ankle, knee or arm.
*Problems with eye movements.
*Sloppy or clumsy muscle movements.

You may also develop:

*Breathing problems.
*Muscle weakness in your arms and legs.
*Swallowing problems.
*Tongue weakness.

DIAGNOSIS:

*Blood tests: Blood tests can detect high levels of certain antibodies in your blood. Antibodies are proteins your immune system produces to fight infections.
*Electromyography: An electromyogram is a test that measures how well your muscles are responding to signals from nerves.
*Nerve conduction study: This test measures how quickly an electrical signal moves through your nerves.
*Spinal tap: During a spinal tap (lumbar puncture), your provider removes a sample from the fluid surrounding your spine and examines the fluid for certain antibodies.

TREATMENT:

*Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy: IVIG therapy uses purified plasma (the liquid portion of your blood) and healthy antibodies from donors. It can help prevent your immune system from attacking healthy tissue.
*Plasma exchange (plasmapheresis): Plasmapheresis is a procedure to filter your blood of plasma that may contain harmful antibodies.
*Physical rehabilitation: You may work with a physical therapist or occupational therapist to regain muscle strength, flexibility and coordination. Therapists can help you improve your balance and gait (walking) and show you techniques for performing daily activities.

Topic: ADAPTATION FOR CWLD

6/2/2023 10:00:36 AM

Today Collab Topic (SE) Given by Mounisha garu, Uppal Facility


Topic: ADAPTATION FOR CWLD 

Children with special needs have not only physical limitations that challenge their opportunity for communication, they also have environmental barriers. Children with special needs often require tools to aid communication and may need an investment of both time and money to learn and modify their strategies to adapt to the world.

At CARE, Inc., we are trained to understand alternative methods of communication. These may include any of the following:

Gestures and Nonverbal Communication – Including gestures such as pointing, nodding and focused eye contact can help children with disabilities understand messages. Parents, family members and friends may need to exaggerate their gestures or prolong them, especially in the beginning, to promote comprehension. In general, children like responding to exaggerated nonverbals with their own movements and gestures, but for children with disabilities, gestures are almost necessary.
Read to them –and talk to them often. Practice makes perfect goes the old saying, and this is certainly a good one for children with disabilities when they are learning better communication strategies. The first step to learning language is listening, and we cannot expect a child to communicate well if we first do not teach them to understand. Exposure to communication is a key element for learning.
Constantly provide explanation. In the grocery store, talk to the child at every step. Count the apples as you put them in plastic bags, read the items off the list and check them off with the child, and finally, allow the child to help you organize and store groceries when you get home. This allows you to repeat the items to the child over and over, promoting learning and also teaching him or her about grocery shopping along the way and can be applied to other aspects of your routine as well.

Topic: POSTERIOR INTEROSSEOUS NERVE INJURY

5/30/2023 10:16:01 AM

Today Collab Topic (OT) Given by Haritha garu, Uppal Facility

Topic:POSTERIOR INTEROSSEOUS NERVE INJURY:

The posterior interosseous nerve (or dorsal interosseous nerve) is a nerve in the forearm. It is the continuation of the deep branch of the radial nerve, after this has crossed the supinator muscle. It is considerably diminished in size compared to the deep branch of the radial nerve. The nerve fibers originate from cervical segments C7 and C8 in the spinal column.

CAUSES:

Posterior interosseous nerve syndrome is more common in males, manual labourers 

Posterior interosseous nerve syndrome can be caused by a traumatic injury, tumors, inflammation and an anatomic injury. With repeated pronation and supination a dynamic compression of the nerve in the proximal part of the forearm can be created.

CLINICAL PRESENTATION:

the patient may present with weakness in the wrist and finger extensors. Because the extensor carpi radialis longus and in some cases the extensor carpi radialis brevis are innervated before the radial nerve passes into the supinator, there is usually some sparing of wrist extension. Also, because of the lack of extensor carpi ulnaris, there maybe some radial deviation of the wrist with extension with the remaining innervated ECRL and ECRB.

DIAGNOSIS:

*History
*Functional limitations or deficits
*Palpation: Abnormal tenderness is expected over the arcade of Frohse and eventually over the lateral epicondyle
*Neural tension test
*Muscle testing 

INVESTIGATIONS:

*Electromyography: Identify level of compression
*Nerve conduction velocity
*MRI: Not commonly used:
To determine specific area of compression
Assist in surgical planning

TREATMENT:

*Reduction of local inflammation and swelling around the nerve:
Wrist and/or elbow splints
*NSAID’s
Activity modification to reduce local inflammation and swelling around the nerve
*Corticosteroid injections
*Therapeutic ultrasound
*Physiotherapy
*Reduction of synovitis
*Heat
*Rest
*Mild range of motion
*Surgery

Topic: TROUBLE SWALLOWING

5/26/2023 10:04:10 AM

Today's Collab Topic (ST) Given by Sharath garu, Uppal Facility


 Topic: Trouble Swallowing

Difficulty swallowing foods or liquids, arising from the throat or oesophagus, ranging from mild difficulty to complete and painful blockage.

COMMON CAUSES
Difficulty swallowing can have causes that aren't due to underlying disease. Examples include large bites of food, inadequate chewing, dry mouth, pills or food that's too hot. Swallowing is also difficult when talking, laughing or lying down.

Causes dysphagia:

a condition that affects the nervous system, such as a stroke, head injury, or dementia.
cancer – such as mouth cancer or oesophageal cancer.
gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) – where stomach acid leaks back up into the oesophagus.

5 signs of swallowing difficulty:

Dysphagia (swallowing problems)
coughing or choking when eating or drinking.
bringing food back up, sometimes through the nose.
a feeling that food is stuck in your throat or chest.
a gurgly, wet-sounding voice when eating or drinking.

The best therapy for swallowing:

How to Perform: Take a deep breath and keep holding your breath as you place a small bite of food in your mouth and swallow. Then, cough to clear any remnants of saliva or food which may have gone down past your vocal cords. Lastly, exhale. During your first few attempts at the exercise, do not use food.

Can swallowing be restored:

Outside of a few special cases, dysphagia is often temporary and most dysphagic stroke survivors recover fully. Working with experts, like dieticians and speech pathologists, can help survivors manage their dysphagia and improve their ability to swallow safely.

Cancers make it hard to swallow:

The types of cancer most likely to cause swallowing problems are cancers of the:
voice box (larynx)
thyroid gland.
mouth and tongue (oral cancer)
throat (pharynx)
nasal cavity and sinuses.
melanoma or other skin cancer on the face.
salivary glands.
food pipe (oesophagus)

Suffers the most from dysphagia:

Dysphagia is a common condition; it affects approximately 13.5% of the general population but is more common in seniors. As more people live to older ages, the incidence of dysphagia is increasing. It affects 19-33% of individuals older than 80 years-of-age, and up to 50% of individuals living in a nursing home.

Topic: HEBERDEN'S NODULE

5/24/2023 9:45:01 AM

Today Collab Topic (OT) Given by Haritha garu, Uppal facility


Topic: HEBERDEN'S NODULE 

    Heberden’s nodes are small, pea-sized bony growths that occur on the joint closest to the tip of the finger, also called the distal interphalangeal joint. Heberden’s nodes are a symptom of osteoarthritis (OA) of the hand.

CAUSES: 

The main cause of Heberden's nodes is osteoarthritis. That's a form of arthritis that happens when the tissue that covers the ends of your bones -- called cartilage -- wears away.

Your cartilage can break down because of slow wear and tear over time or if you have an injury to the joint. The result is that the smooth cushioning of your joints gets rough and causes pain, stiffness, and inflammation.

SYMPTOMS:

*Stiffness: As the disease moves further along, it may get harder to use your hands. You might have trouble opening and closing your fingers all the way.

*Pain: It comes and goes at first, but it can sometimes get worse over time. It might hurt more when you first wake up.

*Swelling :The irritation and damage from bone-on-bone friction can lead nearby tissues to get swollen and tender to the touch.

*Weakness: Pain, swelling, misshapen joints, and loss of motion can make your hands weak over time. It might get harder to do things like turn a key or open a jar.

*Crepitus: This is grinding, cracking, or clicking that happens when you move your hands.

DIAGNOSIS:

The appearance of Heberden's nodes at your DIP joints is a common first sign of osteoarthritis.

Your doctor will ask about your symptoms and your family history and might take some X-rays of your joints to look for bone spurs and cartilage that's worn away.

TREATMENT:

You can treat pain and swelling with rest, splints, ice, physical therapy, and pain medicines like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

In rare cases, your doctor might suggest surgery to remove the nodes, or replace or fuse one of the joints in your fingers.

Other than that, they will likely treat the osteoarthritis that is the root cause of your Heberden's nodes.
