perfusion, oxygenation, and safety? 5- metabolic disorders, infections, inflammatory and non-inflammatory diseases, tumors•Soft Tissue Injuries:- the damage of muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body. •What causes soft tissue injuries?- Common soft tissue injuries usually occurs from a sprain, strain, a one off blow resulting in a contusion(bruise) or overuse of a particular part of the body•What is the difference between sprains and strains?- a sprain is a stretching or tearing of ligaments – the tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect two bones together in your joint. - a strain is a stretching or tearing of muscle or tendon•What is a dislocation and how severe is it?- disturbance from a proper, original, or usual place or state- complications of a joint dislocation can include: tearing of the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that reinforce the injured joint. Nerve or blood vessel damage in or around your joint. Susceptibility to re-injury if you have a severe dislocation or repeated dislocations•What signs/symptoms will you expect in someone with a soft tissue injury?- bruise, sprain, strain•What treatments/interventions will you implement for soft tissue injury?- RICE and HARM protocol- The No HARM protocol should also be applied – no heat, no alcohol, no running or activity, and no massage- regime should be used for all ligament sprains, muscle sprains and muscles bruises•What is R.I.C.E.?- rest, ice, compression, elevation
•What is the relevance of perfusion, oxygenation, mobility, infection/inflammation, and safety to soft tissue injuries?- Soft tissue injuries have a high incidence of infection. An open fracture usually results from the impact of severe external forces. Massive or blunt soft tissue injury often has more serious consequences than the fracture.
