In the setting of driving and community mobility I got into my truck and cranked it and I thought this isn’t bad at all. I stopped at a store to get a drink and when I reached to turn the ignition off, I realized that I was limited in range of motion especially in radial deviation and wrist extension. Upon entering the store and getting my drink I realized all my money was in my right front pocket. The splint doesn’t go into my pocket and I could not reach into my pocket with my left hand. Needless to say I had to remove the splint to retrieve the money from my pocket. The man at the counter was looking at me with a smirk but never offered his assistance. After entering my house, I proceeded to put all my things down to change clothes and again I was faced with limited range of motion. I needed full wrist extension and flexion, radial and ulnar deviation in order to remove my clothes. I put some clothes in the washer and dryer that did not present a challenge. When I was folding and hanging my clothes from the dryer I ran into some on the same limitations as…

    This type of fracture involves an isolated fracture of the junction of the mid to distal radius with associated dislocation of the distal radiolunar joint which is often difficult to recognize. When there is presentation of a radial only fracture the radioulnar joint should be examined carefully on the x-ray (Gaillard, F., radiopaedia.org). According to Putigna & Ursone (emedicine.com) a relatively uncommon injury accounting for fewer than 5% of all forearm fractures is the Monteggia fracture.…

    Common symptoms of the full can and empty can test are weakness and pain, therefore both tests need to be used to test for rotator cuff injuries. If pain, weakness, or both are present, these tests are thought to be positive. Since pain modifies muscle strength, there is a concern about the reliability of the empty can test.1 This concern arises because of the internal rotation of the humerus results in impingement, therefore potentially decreases the usefulness of the test. With the empty can…

    The percent error of the calculated percent water and accepted value is 3.36%. The mean of the class data for percent water was 50.8% and the standard deviation was 0.0300. Compared to the class results, my percent water was lower, but very close to the mean. The standard deviation has a low number; hence the data are not as spread out from the mean. One source of error that contributed to this percent error was that the hydrate, MgSO_4, may have been heated too long. This is a random error…

    agree with the previously mentioned scientist’s implications to their findings. In fact, they covered numerous areas of practical applications I would never have conjured. Initially discovering the intelligent abilities of octopuses, I cringed at the idea of containing them in an empty tank with out objects or sand. For the justification of humane treatment, octopuses should have multiple enrichments in their environments. Intelligent creatures need mental stimulus for physiological and…
