Question Answer
Besides supporting homeostasis, maintaining healthy metabolism, and supporting the whole patient, what is the first step in treating any dysfunction involving facilitated spinal cord segments?Treat the underlying dysfunction
After treating the dysfunction responsible for initiating the faciliatated spinal cord segment, what are the next three major steps in treating the patient?(1) Decrease sympathetic contribution (2) Restore fluid movement (i.e. open diaphragms, pumps) (3) Restore parasympathetic balance
What is the primary manipulative method most often used to moderate hypersympathetic activity?Rib raising
Describe how rib raising has the effect it does?Fascia around rib head is the same fascia around the sympathetic chain, stimulation causes the medulla to reflexively inhibit sympathetics
In decreasing sympathetic contribution to a facilitated segment, what structures should be assessed and tereated after rib raising?Collateral ganlion
Name the collateral ganglia.(1) Pre-aortic ganglia (2) Cervical ganglia
Why can cervical dysfunction result in heart problems?Any cervical dysfunction can cause stimulation of the cervical ganglia. Nerve fibers from the cervical ganglia intermingle with those of the cardiac plexus. The cardiac plexus provides sympathetic innervation to the heart (i.e. can cause heart problems)
Which Chapman's point points are used for assessment? For treatment?Anterior; Posterior
Where is the Chapmans's reflex point for the sinus? Liver?2nd rib; 5th costochondral joint on the right
Where is the Chapmans's reflex point for the appendix? Retina?Tip of rib 12; Lateral superior humerous
What sturctures comprise the clinical thoracic inlet?(1) Ribs 1-2 (2) T1-4 (3) Manubrium
What 4 diaphragms should be assessed and released, as necessary, when addressing proper lymphatic drainage?(1) Craniocervical (2) Cervicothoracic (3) Abdominal (4) Pelvic
Which are done first - lymphatic pumps or diaphragmatic releases?Diaphragmatic releases
What are the 4 anatomic transition sites of fascia?(1) OA (2) Cervicothoracic (3) Thoracolumbar (4) Lumbarsacral
Describe fascial compensated patterns.Alternating
What nerve roots contribute to the pelvic splanchnic nerve?S2-4
What is the parasympathetic innervaton to the mucous membrane glands of the sinuses and nasal mucosa?CN VII (facial n.)
What cranial nerve is affected by manipulation of the sphenopalatine ganglion?CN VII (facial n.)
What structures may be manipulated to balance the vagus nerve? Which is most important?(1) OA (most important) (2) AA (3) C3
What is the sympathetic innervation to the pancrease (be specific)?T7 right
What is the sympathetic innervation to the gallbladder?T6 right
What is the primary method for treating and modulating the pelvic splanchnic nerve?Rocking sacrum
What are the three components of the respiratory mechanism?(1) CNS (2) CSF (3) Dura membranes
What are the 3 dural attachments?Foramen magnum (2) C2-3 (4) S2
In considering craniosacral extension, is there extension or flexion of the midline bones? Sacral nutation or counternutation? Increased or decreased anterior-posterior cranial diameter?Extension; Nutation; Increased
In cranial torsion, is the dysfunction named for the greater or lesser wing of the sphenoid bone? And, is it named for the part that is more superior or inferior?Greater; Superior
What is the purpose of the CV4 method?Increase amplitude of the CRI
What type of cranial dysfunction is marked by cephalic deviation of the sphenoid?Superior vertical strain
What is the drug of choice for petit mal seizures? What's another name of this?Ethosuximide; Absence seizures
What is the drug of choice for status epilepticus?Diazepam
What is the drug of choice for vertigo? For chemotherapy induced nausea? For motion sickness?Meclozine; Metacloprimide; Scopolamine
What effect does magnesium have on bowel movements? Why?Increase bowel movement because of its osmotic effects (i.e. draws water into the bowel, causes distension, increases peristalsis)
To what classes of drugs (general and specific) do lorazepam, diazepam, triazolam, and chlordiazepoxide belong?General: Anxiolytics; Specific: Benzodiazepines
Barbiturates have a high suicide potential; what is the common way for them to cause death if overdose occurs?Respiratory depression
