2019 Electrotherapy Lab Unit I HVPC The following patient cases identify a need for electrotherapy. In this lab, we will limit the currents to HVPC. Use critical thinking skills and your knowledge of electrotherapy (as well as all of your notes and handouts) to decide the protocol and electrode set up for each. You will need to practice with your lab partner remembering all of the performance determinants of the treatment process, including pre and post treatment assessments. Be able to perform all treatments and state the parameters including length of treatment time and frequency of treatment: intensity, frequency, continuous or surged on/off, intrapulse interval, polarity, length of treatment time, number of repetitions of a contraction. Write up your information for each scenario after performing and turn in all scenarios on the day of the Unit I Lab Test. Each scenario is worth 1 point for total possible points: 10. 1. This is a 24 y/o who was involved in a motorcycle accident 2 weeks ago. X-rays revealed no fractures; however, there are nicely healing superficial lacerations on the left anterior distal LE. The left ankle has pitting edema and is grossly 2 cm larger in circumferential measurements taken at the left ankle and compared to the right ankle. POC: Provide electrotherapy to the left ankle to decrease edema. 2. This is a 14 y/o who was climbing a fence when a rusty nail made a deep laceration on his/her right forearm along the area of the brachioradialis mm. There is moderate greenish drainage and a foul, sweet smell to the wound. You suspect an infection.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
