Diagonostic Tests
Arthrography, Blood tests, Electromyography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Computed Topography, and Radiographs(Xrays)
Immobilization Methods
casts (application of a plaster or fiberglass cast or splint)
Complications of fractures
hemorrhage, edema, and soft-tissue injury. Nerves, blood vessels, or organs may be injured during the trauma
Pneumatic Tourniquet
The surgeon wraps the limb with a sterile Ace wrap or Esmarch bandage to exsanguniate the limb. Pts. can tolerate pressure of a tourniquet 1 hour on uper extremities to 2 hours on the thigh. (or 120minutes top and no longer)

used to place or remove orthopedic implants
Saw blade vibrates in and out
Saw blade vibrates back and forth
Measuring Devices

Care of Orthopedic Implants
pt's permanent record, operative report, implant registry, the manufacturer. Info to be recorded includes lot and serial number of the implants used; manufacturer, and the size, type, and anatomical position of the implant.
Bone Cement
Polymethyl methacrylate is used to secure and cement some orthopedic implants. It is highly toxic to OR staff and exposure can produce: eye irritation, skin irritation, depression of the central nervous system. Respiratory tract irritation. Preg. woman should not be present in OR during mix of the bone cement.
Positions in Orthopedic surgery
Lateral position, Prone position, beach-chair(aka:modified Fowler's position)
Knee Arthroscopy
a dignostic visual exam of the joint through the use of a camera. It is used for a diagnostic and repairing injury to the knee joint.
Arthroscopic Anterior Cruciate ligament Repair
The goal is to reconstruct the ACL
Ankle Arthroscopy
Used to visualize the ankle joint
Shoulder Arthroscopy
extensive visualization to help manage disorders of the shoulder joint, rotator cuff, subacromial bursa, biceps tendon, glenoid, humeral head, and subscapularis tendon.
Indicators for a shoulder Arthoscopy
Impringement syndrome, osteophytes of the AC joint, thickening of the rotator cuff, bursitis, frozen shoulder.
Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
A basic shoulder scope to repair rotator cuff( endoscopic and open). Restore stability to shoulder joint, alleviate pain. Rotator cuff tears and impringement syndrome affect middle-ages people and cause is degenerative. Pts with this problem may not be able to initiate abduction of shoulder cuz the stabilizing forces of the ruputured tendons on the humeral head are lost. a pt for this procedure will be placed in beach-chair position.
