1 Assess dorsiflexion of the foot. 2 Assess plantar flexion of the foot. 3 Assess sensation in the sole of the foot between the first and second toes. 4 Assess sensation in the sole of the foot between the third and fourth toes. 5 Assess sensation in the dorsal part of the foot between the first and second toes. 24. 4 The shoulder of a patient who underwent acromioplasty should not be immobilized for a prolonged time, because it may cause arthrofibrosis. Weight lifting is recommended if the patient has fully recovered. Physical therapy and pendulum exercises begin from the first postoperative day to promote healing and prevent complications. Test-Taking Tip: Multiple-choice questions can be challenging, because students think that they will recognize the right answer when they see it or that the right answer will somehow stand out from the other choices. This is a dangerous misconception. The more carefully the question is constructed, the more each of the choices will seem like the correct response. Text Reference - p. 1510 A patient with an extensive tear of the muscles around the shoulder underwent acromioplasty. Which postoperative activity may result in arthrofibrosis? 1 Lifting weights after six months 2 Beginning physical therapy on the first postoperative day 3 Performing pendulum exercises on the first postoperative day 4 Keeping the shoulder immobilized for prolonged periods after surgery

25. 1 A meniscus injury may be manifested as a popping, clicking, tearing sensation with effusion and swelling. Swimmers have repeated overhead arm movements and are not likely to suffer from this condition. Athletes who play basketball, soccer, and football have a higher risk of knee injury than swimmers. Test-Taking Tip: You have at least a 25 percent chance of selecting the correct response in multiple-choice items. Text Reference - p. 1510 Which athlete is least likely to experience a meniscus injury, according to the nurse who is assisting in conducting sports physicals? 1 A swimmer 2 A soccer player 3 A football player 4 A basketball player 26. 3 Subluxation, also known as dislocation, may be assessed by means of palpation of the space between the head of the bone and the cavity where it is normally located. Subluxation results in partial loss of function and intense pain. A subluxation is not a fracture there is no break in bone integrity but a subluxation is treated similarly to a fracture. With subluxation, there is no rupture in the integrity of the bone. Subluxation may be described as a misalignment, but this is not an accurate term. Text Reference - p. 1507 A patient is found to have a partially dislocated shoulder. How should the nurse document this finding? 1 Fracture 2 Rupture 3 Subluxation 4 Misalignment 27. 1 Ligament injury is the tearing or stretching of a ligament as a result of inversion, eversion, shearing, or torque applied to a joint. Overuse syndrome results from prolonged force or repetitive movements and awkward postures. A tear within the muscle or tendinoligamentous structures around the shoulder is a rotator cuff tear.

    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.
