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.
