Forward Head Posture Fix
The cardiovascular system must be able to adapt to changing conditions and demands of the body. For example, when a person exercises, increased metabolic activity of contracting skeletal muscle requires large increases in nutrient supply (particularly oxygen) and enhanced removal of metabolic by-products (e.g., carbon dioxide, lactic acid). To meet this demand, blood vessels within the exercising muscle dilate to increase blood flow however, blood flow can only be increased if the arterial pressure is maintained. Arterial pressure is maintained by increasing cardiac output and by constricting blood vessels in other organs of the body (see Chapter 9). If these changes were not to occur, arterial blood pressure would fall precipitously during exercise, thereby limiting organ perfusion and exercise capacity. Therefore, a coordinated cardiovascular response is required to permit increased muscle blood flow while a person exercises. Another example of adaptation occurs when a person stands...
In deep and in forced inspiration additional muscles attached to the chest wall are called into play (e.g. scalenus anterior, sternocleidomastoid, serratus anterior and pectoralis major) to increase further the capacity of the thorax. Similarly, in deep expiration, forced contraction of the abdominal muscles aids the normal expulsive factors described above.
The brachial plexus runs within the interscalene triangle (formed by the anterior scalene anteriorly, the middle scalene posteriorly, and the superior border of the first rib inferiorly). The brachial plexus is also located within the posterior triangle of the neck (formed by the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) medially, the trapezius laterally, and the clavicle inferiorly).
Sporadic adult onset bulbospinal muscular atrophy. A 58-year-old man gave a 3-year history of difficulty swallowing and 50-pound weight loss over the past 2 years. On admission, he appeared emaciated, with severe generalized muscle wasting, especially of the small hand muscles. Fasciculations were noted in the arm and neck muscles. Reflexes were hypoactive, and the plantar responses were flexor. Sensation was normal. The speech was hoarse. He died suddenly of hemorrhagic bronchopneumonia. Family history was negative for neuromuscular diseases. A. The hand shows atrophy of the small intrinsic muscles. B. Medulla shows neuronal losses in the hypoglossus nucleus. C.

1 With the patient's head turned slightly away from the side being examined, place the ultrasound probe low on the neck, anterior to the sternocleidomastoid muscle, just above the clavicle. The left side of the image should be orientated towards midline structures, i.e. trachea.
How you would like your interviewer to look Would your ideal interviewer be male or female How would he or she dress What type of facial expressions would you like to see Lots of smiles Do you want an expressive interviewer One with open body posture A more serious demeanor Imagine all sorts of details (e.g., use of makeup, type of shoes, length of hair).
A group of investigators from the Johns Hopkins Center in Baltimore have conducted two studies which they claim support the hypothesis that CFS is related to neurally mediated hypotension (Bou-Holaigah et al. 1995 Rowe et al. 1995). Neurally mediated hypotension is a disorder of low blood pressure related to the functioning of one part of the nervous system, the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system regulates the body's vital functions including the activity of the heart and cardiac system. The symptoms of neurally mediated hypotension are severe lightheadedness or a brief lapse in consciousness when altering bodily posture. One way this is assessed is by placing patients on a tilted table for extended periods of time. The Johns Hopkins group reported that 95 per cent of CFS patients demonstrated an abnormal tilt table test result compared to 29 per cent of healthy controls (Bou-Holaigah et al. 1995 Rowe et al. 1995). Forty per cent of the patients with abnormal...
A standard protocol of extended rest in the supine position has been recommended prior to measurement of ANP. Owing to longer biological half-lives, BNP and particularly NT-proBNP are less susceptible than ANP to short-term fluctuations, such as during exercise and rapid changes in hemodynamics (e.g., caused by change in body posture or acute volume load). We previously reported a significant increase in BNP 3 min after ergometry in control subjects and patients with mild to moderate heart failure, but the relative increase from baseline values compared with ANP was small (13). Others have reported that BNP does not significantly increase after exercise stress testing in control subjects and patients with heart failure (14). Thus, in contrast to ANP, blood sampling for measurement of BNP may be performed without a standardized period of rest or position (15). Owing to a longer half-life of NT-proBNP, the requirements for blood sampling for measurement of NT-proBNP are even less...

Autonomic and humoral influences are necessary to maintain a normal arterial blood pressure under the different conditions in which the human body functions. Neurohumoral mechanisms enable the body to adjust to changes in body posture, physical activity, or environmental conditions. The neurohumoral mechanisms act through changes in systemic vascular resistance, venous compliance, blood volume, and cardiac function, and through these actions they can effectively regulate arterial blood pressure (Table 6-4). Although each mechanism has independent cardiovascular actions, it is important to understand that each mechanism also has complex interactions with other control mechanisms that serve to reinforce or inhibit the actions of the other control mechanisms. For example, activation of sympathetic nerves either directly or indirectly increases circulating angiotensin II, aldosterone, adrenal catecholamines, and arginine vasopressin, which act together to increase blood volume, cardiac...
Sternocleidomastoid Sternocleidomastoid Pus from a tuberculous cervical vertebra bulges behind this dense fascial layer and may form a midline swelling in the posterior wall of the pharynx. The abscess may then track laterally, deep to the prevertebral fascia, to a point behind the sternocleidomastoid. Rarely, pus has tracked down along the axillary sheath into the arm.
In the mental health field, attitude toward the interviewer refers to how clients behave in relation to the interviewer that is, attitude is defined as behavior that occurs in an interpersonal context. Observation of concrete physical characteristics and physical movement provides a foundation for evaluating client attitude toward the interviewer. Additionally, observations regarding client responsiveness to interviewer questions, including nonverbal factors such as voice tone, eye contact, and body posture, as well as verbal factors such as response latency and directiveness or evasiveness of response, all help interviewers determine their client's attitude.
The internal carotid lies first lateral to the external carotid but rapidly passes medial and posterior to it, to ascend along the side-wall of the pharynx. It does so with the internal jugular vein, vagus and cervical sympathetic chain in the same relationship to it that they bear to the common carotid artery. At first the artery is covered superficially only by the sternocleidomastoid, the hypoglossal nerve (XII) and the common facial vein it then passes under the posterior belly of the digastric muscle and parotid gland to the base of the skull. It is separated from the external carotid artery not only by the parotid but also by the styloid process and the muscles arising from it, by IX and by the pharyngeal branches of the vagus nerve (X).
The first part arches over the dome of the pleura and lies deeply placed beneath the sternocleidomastoid and the strap muscles. It is crossed at its origin by the carotid sheath and, more laterally, by the phrenic and vagus nerves. At this site, on the right side, the vagus gives off its recurrent laryn-geal branch which hooks behind the artery.
Automated systems for recording and analyzing behavior have many applications for the study of neurobiology in Caenorhabditis elegans. In particular, machine-based approaches allow for precise quantitative definitions of behavioral phenotypes that have traditionally been subjectively described by individual observers. Automated systems also facilitate the analysis of behaviors that occur over long time scales or are difficult to detect by eye. Here we describe the detailed methodology for the use of one recently described automated tracking system for C. elegans. These protocols make it possible to measure a wide range of parameters related to the morphology, body posture, and locomotion patterns of individual wild-type and mutant nematodes.
Present time and usually occurs in the presence of an esophageal feeding tube. However, in the past granulomatous mediastinal infections and trauma were more important. The incidence of this type of acquired tracheoesophageal fistula secondary to endotracheal cuff erosion is starting to decline because of the use of high volume low pressure cuffed endotracheal tubes. If the tracheoesophageal fistula occurs while the patient is still endotracheally intubated, reconstruction is not performed. Instead, the endotracheal tube is replaced with a low pressure cuff which is placed, if possible, as a tracheostomy below the level of the fistula. A gastrostomy may be performed to keep the stomach empty to prevent reflux, and a feeding jejunostomy is placed. The feeding tube through the esophagus is removed. When the patient is able to be extubated, the benign tracheoesophageal fistula is approached through a oblique sternocleidomastoid type incision on the left side. Another approach is a collar...
Dural carotid-cavernous fistulas arise spontaneously and primarily in elderly women. Dural branches of the internal or external carotid are equally involved, and fistulas often arise spontaneously from both sources. The resulting venous congestion causes an ectasia of the orbital and conjunctival veins that are clearly differentiable from inflammatory hyperemia (large, rope-like conjunctival vessels that contrast with white scleral tissue), as well as chemosis with lid swelling, exophthalmos, retinal vascular dilatation with intraretinal hemorrhages, and elevated intraocular pressure. The latter feature is caused by the marked elevation in episcleral venous pressure that is transmitted directly to the anterior chamber. The elevated pressure in the cavernous sinus causes damage to the third, fourth, and sixth cranial nerves, resulting in diplopia. Frequently, patients hear a pulse-synchronous bruit when background noise is diminished, usually when retiring for the evening, and often...
Ocular causes of a corrective head posture (CHP) Corrective Head Posture When an unusual and involuntary head posture is present, one should determine first whether it is an ocular form of corrective head posture (CHP). Table 19.6 summarizes the most important causes of ocular CHP. Correct recognition of an ocular form of CHP is important, so that unnecessary physiotherapeutic or orthopedic treatments can be avoided. Spontaneous remission of CHP can sometimes be an indication of a worsening of vision, as in the loss of binocular vision. Proper classification of CHP requires both monocular and binocular testing. CHP is to be distinguished from a faulty head posture that has no apparent visual source, particularly when evaluating children with infantile strabismus. Head posture of infantile strabismus
The ergonomics of hand position and body posture is closely related to the improved motor skills made possible by a microsurgical approach to therapy. Studies show that motor coordination is greatly improved when surgeons use microsurgical instruments specifically designed to employ 1 precision grip ol the hand.

The spinal accessory nerve (the eleventh cranial nerve) arises from two separate origins the cranial and the spinal parts. Only the spinal portion of the nerve is used in neurotization of the brachial plexus. This portion of the nerve is predominantly motor in nature. It innervates the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles. The nerve is transected as far distally as possible where the nerve dives deeply to innervate the inferior portion of the trapezius. This technique preserves all of the branches to the sternoclei-domastoid and the proximal branches to the trapezius (to minimize the denervation of the trapezius, a muscle that is also innervated in part by the cervical plexus). At this level, the spinal accessory nerve usually contains 1300 to 1600 myelinated nerve fibers.
If fusion fails to occur distally, a sinus persists at the anterior border of the origin of the sternocleidomastoid this branchial fistula can be traced upward between the internal and external carotids and may even open into the tonsillar fossa, demonstrating its association with the second branchial arch.
The normal resting arterial oxygen saturation (Pa,O2) and oxygen saturation (Sa,O2) depend on age, body posture and (of course) the altitude of the laboratory. During incremental exercise, Pa,o2 and Sa,o2 normally remain relatively stable. For example, Sa,o2 normally changes 4 or an absolute Sa,O2
High distension pressures alone will also produce pain-like behaviors (and EMG activity recordings from the neck muscles) in rats, the threshold of which can be increased following morphine administration (25). In a comparative study of the EMG responses seen during gastric distension from different muscles (abdominal rectus abdominus and obliquus externus neck acromiotrapezius and sternomastoideus back spinotrapezius), the most vigorous responses were seen in the acromiotrapezius muscles (24). EMG responses are graded with the distension pressure, relatively stable, and reproducible at time points beyond, and including, three days after electrode implantation (24). Rats that experience gastric distension will rapidly learn passive avoidance behavior (they will not step down from a platform if they receive a 100 mmHg gastric distension as they do so without the distension stimulus, they will readily step down from the platform), providing further evidence that this stimulus is painful.
In most cases, the intensity of the nystagmus and the shape of the slow phases change with gaze direction. The position of gaze where movement is minimal is variously called the neutral point, the quiet point, or the null point. The patient prefers this gaze direction. If the null point is in the midline, the head will be held straight. If it is eccentric, a compensatory head posture will be present.
Affect Content To begin, you should identify what affective state you observe in the client. Is it sadness, euphoria, anxiety, fear, anger, or something else Affective content indicators include facial expression, body posture, movement, and your client's voice tone. For example, when you see tears in your client's eyes, accompanied by a downcast gaze and minimal movement (psychomotor retardation), you will likely conclude your client has a sad affect. In contrast, clenching fists, gritted teeth, and strong language will bring you to the conclusion that your client is displaying an angry affect. Cooperative The client responds directly to interviewer comments or questions. He or she may openly try to work with the interviewer in an effort to gather data or solve problems. Frequent head nods and receptive body posture are common. Depth or Intensity It is also typical for examiners to describe client affect in terms of depth or intensity. Some clients appear profoundly sad, while others...
The fascial relations in the neck are clinically important. These are shown in Figure 17.2. The deep cervical fascia consists of four separate compartments or fascias. The pretracheal fascia surrounds the thyroid, trachea and the esophagus. Superiorly, this attaches to the thyroid and cricoid cartilage. Inferiorly, it extends to the pericardium and laterally blends with the carotid sheath. The investing cervical layer completely surrounds the neck and encloses the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius. Above, it splits to enclose the submandibular gland and parotid, and proceeds then to the base of the skull. The prevertebral fascia encloses the vertebral bodies and prevertebral muscles and extends superiorly to the base of the skull and inferiorly into the thorax. The space between the pharynx and the prevertebral fascia is the retropharyngeal space. It is through this space that infections arising in the deep cervical fascia, for example from dental abscesses, may
Postural hypotension is recognised as the clinical hallmark of CAN in diabetic patients (Ewing & Clarke 1986). It is characterised by weakness, faintness, dizziness, visual impairment and even syncope following the change from the lying to the standing posture. In some cases, this complication may become disabling, but the blood pressure fall may also be asymptomatic. It is generally agreed that postural hypotension is defined by a decrease in systolic blood pressure upon standing of 30 mm Hg or more (Figure 16.1). It is important to note that orthostatic symptoms can be misjudged as hypoglycaemia and be aggravated by a number of drugs including vasodilators, diuretics, phenothiazines, and in particular tricyclic antidepressants and insulin.
The external jugular vein crosses the sternocleidomastoid in the superficial fascia, traverses the roof of the posterior triangle then plunges through the deep fascia 1in (2.5cm) above the clavicle to enter the subclavian vein. You can see it in your own neck in the mirror when you perform a Valsava manoeuvre. Not rarely it is double. cates with its fellow then passes outwards, deep to the sternocleidomastoid, to enter the external jugular vein.
Body posture also influences how the cardiovascular system responds to exercise because of the effects of gravity on venous return and central venous pressure (see Chapter 5). When a person exercises in the supine position (e.g., swimming), central venous pressure is higher than when the person is exercising in the upright position (e.g., running). In the resting state before the physical activity begins, ventricular stroke volume is higher in the supine position than in the upright position owing to increased right ventricular preload. Furthermore, the resting heart rate is lower in the supine position. When exercise commences in the supine position, the stroke volume cannot be increased appreciably by the Frank-Starling mechanism because the high resting preload reduces the reserve capacity of the ventricle to increase its end-diastolic volume. Stroke volume still increases during exercise although not as much as when exercising while standing however, the increased stroke volume is...
In cases where the null point of nystagmus is eccentrically located, the compensatory head posture can be relieved through surgical repositioning of the null point to the primary position (the Kestenbaum procedure). For many patients who experience dampening of the nystagmus during accommodative convergence, fusional vergence has a favorable effect. It can be tested by using base-out prism lenses in a trial frame to see whether fusional convergence is useable. For those with positive prism tests, surgical creation of an exophoria can be helpful for reducing the nystagmus and improving acuity. Controversially discussed are surgical procedures like destroying presumed proprioceptors at the insertion of the eye muscles, or weakening of all muscles that operate in the plane of the nystagmus.
Branchial cleft cysts appear as small dimples or openings anterior to the midportion of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. They may be associated with a sinus tract. Congenital torticollis, or a wry neck, is due to bleeding into the sternocleidomastoid muscle during the stretching process of birth. A firm fibrous mass is felt within the muscle 2-3 weeks after birth and generally disappears over months.
While the abdominal mobilization is being performed, a second team of surgeons operates via a left neck approach to mobilize the cervical esophagus. An incision is made parallel to the sternocleidomastoid retracting the muscle and carotid sheath laterally and the thyroid gland medially. A finger is placed on the anterior portion of the vertebral body and a space dissected retroesophageally. The gloved finger is used to surround the esophagus with special care on the right side to hug the surface of the esophagus to avoid the right recurrent nerve. This is an important point. Most surgeons like to dissect the esophagus in the left neck not only because the esophagus lies more on the left than on the right in the neck, but also because there is less chance of injury to the recurrent nerve on the right
