Whats a stroke?
Important Vocab to know:
Amputation: the removal of all or part of an extremity
Arthritis: joint (arthr) inflammation
Anthroplasty: the surgical replacement of a joint.
fracture: broken bone where skin is intact
Compound/Open fracture: broken bone where the skin has been pierced through.
Gangrene: a condition where there is death of the tissue
Hemiplegia: paralysis on one side of the body
Paralysis: loss of muscle function, sensation, or both.
Paraplegia: paralysis in the legs or lower trunk
Quadriplegia: paralysis in the arms, legs, and trunks.
Tetraplegia: "see quadriplegia"
The central nervous system
The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system.
The brain lives in the cranium and consists of many parts
spinal cord is in the vertebral column.
The peripheral nervous system
Has 12 pairs if cranial nerves and 31 pairs of spinal nerves.
They conduct impulses between the brain and the head, neck, chest, and abdomen.
They conduct impulses for smell, vision, hearing, pain, touch, temperature and pressure.
Controls voluntary and involuntary muscles.

Mask like expression
a chronic disease where the myelin in the brain and spinal cord is destroyed. Functions are impaired or lost, there is no cure.
Multiple Sclerosis:
Amyotrophic Lateral sclerosis
ALS is a disease that attacks the nerve cells that control voluntary muscles. It progresses rapidly and is faltal. Motor nerve cells in the brain, bainstem, spinal cord are affected. The cells stop sending messages to the muscle causing them to weaken and waste away.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Can permanently damage the nervos system.
is the loss of muscle function, sensation, or both and can occur.
Incomplete damage- some sensory and muscle function below the level of the injury remains.
Complete damage- no sensory or muscle function below the level of injury remains.
The higher the level of injury, the more functions are lost.
Arthritis: Joing inflammation. Pain, swelling and stiffness occurs in the affected joints.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. Causes are: aging, being overweight, and joint injury.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic inflammarory disease. It causes joint pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function.
