FRACTURES by Jennifer Nielsen

  1. 1. (Broken Bones)Info from: www.kidshealth.html and nursingcrib.com/nursing-notes-reviewer/fractures/ Jennifer Nielsen
  2. 2. •Greenstick Fracture•Transverse Fracture•Simple Fracture•Oblique Fracture•Comminuted Fracture•Spiral Fracture•Compound Fracture
  3. 3. a) Inflammationb) Bone Productionc) Bone Remodeling
  4. 4. Inflammation Lasts a few days Causes blood clotting in fractured area Clotting creates a stability and framework for new bone production
  5. 5. Bone Production Blood clotted areas are replaced with “soft callus” Then replaced with “hard callus” (hard bone)
  6. 6. Bone Remodeling Lasts a few months Bone continues to form, grow stronger, become compact, and return to original form. Growing stronger results from little exercise
  7. 7. What steps would an athletetake to recover? May need a metal pin or pins Cast Don’t use the fractured bone/bones  REST Depending on age, healing usually takes 6 to 8 weeks
  8. 8.  Physical TherapyIf bone is healing slowly the doctor may:1. Longer immobilization2. Bone stimulation3. Surgery4. Bone growth proteins
  9. 9. Things that slow the healingprocess Movement of the bone fragments Smoking  Constricts the blood vessels  Decreases circulation Medical Conditions  Diabetes  Hormone-related problems  Vascular disease
  10. 10.  Some Medication Fractures that are  Severe  Complicated  Infected Advanced Age Poor Nutrition
