Examining Measurement of Behavioral Neglect Post Stroke

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine measurement of unilateral neglect post stroke. Although a number of clinical assessments are used to measure neglect, it is unclear whether items from some of the most commonly used assessments are able to effectively and comprehensively measure neglect. This study will determine whether these assessments measure different aspects of neglect and whether items from various neglect assessments can be combined to more effectively measure neglect.

Description

Many individuals have difficulty attending to the affected side of their body or to the affected side of space after stroke (unilateral neglect). Although a number of clinical assessments are used to measure this inattention, it is unclear whether items from some of the most commonly used assessments are able to effectively and comprehensively measure inattention. Clinical assessments provide critical information to clinicians and researchers and are used to inform treatment and document patient progress. Therefore, it is important that investigators more closely examine these existing assessments.

Individuals who demonstrate impaired attention to the affected side after stroke also have greater motor impairment than individuals who do not have impaired attention, but investigators do not know how inattention affects reaching movements using the impaired arm. This study will examine various methods used to assess inattention to the affected side after stroke and also examine how inattention affects reaching movements of the impaired arm.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.

A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)

A condition caused by the failure of body to dissipate heat in an excessively hot environment or during PHYSICAL EXERTION in a hot environment. Contrast to HEAT EXHAUSTION, the body temperature in heat stroke patient is dangerously high with red, hot skin accompanied by DELUSIONS; CONVULSIONS; or COMA. It can be a life-threatening emergency and is most common in infants and the elderly.
