the pelvis is an example of what type of bone irregular bone

joint composed of a thin layer of dense connective tissue, also called immovable or synarthroses fibrous joint
joint connected by hyaline cartilage or fibrocartilage, also called slightly movable or amphiarthroses cartilaginous joint
most common type of joint, also called freely movable or diarthroses synovial joint

area on which an object rests; stance with feet slightly apart base of support
physiologic study of the muscular actions and the functions of muscles in maintaining posture of the body body mechanics
abnormal flexion and fixation of a joint caused by atrophy contractures
lying horizontal on the back dorsal or supine
supine with head and shoulders up and extremeties moderately flexed dorsal recumbent
bending or flexing backward (lifting toes upward, for example) dorsiflexion
movement of joint that increases the angle between two adjoining bones extension
movement of joint that decreases the angle between two adjoining bones flexion
elevation of the head of the bed by 45-60 degrees fowler's position
kneeling so the weight of the body is supported by knees and chest genupectoral
extension beyond normal limit hyperextension
inability to move freely immobility
any connection between bones joint
resting on the side lateral position
supine with hips and knees flexed and thighs abducted and rotated externally (childbirth) lithotomy

downward and forward pressure on tissues beneath the skin shearing force
palm forward or upward supination
lying on back supine
lying supine with head below legs and body trendelenburg position
lying on the side, usually the left side sim's position
factors that determine how much assitance one needs when moving a patient ability of pt to assist; activity level; weight; medical equipment; pain level; surgical sites; medical diagnosis; complications of immobility
hazards of immobility (caused by improper alignment or positioning) pressure ulcers; shearing force; contractures; fluid in lungs
patient teaching topics associated with immobility teaching family to assist in positioning; assessing the environment to prevent falls; ROM exercises; avoidance of prolonged sitting (stretching frequently); making position changes slowly to prevent orthostatic hypotension
nursing interventions to prevent complications of immobility repositioning; proper hydration/nutrition; ROM exercises; careful handling; proper positioning; early ambulation; antiembolism measures
things to consider when assisting a patient to ambulate orthostatic hypotension; appropriate ammount of support; avoidance of overtiring; if falling, support the head
this level of support involves only holding a patient's arm to provide stability and reassurance minimal support
this level of support requires caregiver to encircle the arm and support patients waist moderate support
it requires two people to provide this type of support maximum support
the patient conducts ROM exercises without assistance active ROM
the patient conducts ROM exercises with assistance from THEMSELVES active assisted ROM
the nurse conducts ROM exercises without the patient's help passive ROM
the nurse assists the patient to complete ROM that they are able to partially complete unassisted passive assisted ROM
