Cerebral Palsy

What type of hospitalization is requiredUse of multiple cameras tomeasure a child's gaitpattern development,helping to determine the mostappropriate surgical treatment

Probable Outcome:Nobody has ever died of CP Depends of the person; - speak slowly- can't drive - problem learning to read during the 1st three years in school- serious problem with their math skills during elementary school

Long-term Effects~ Muscle tightness and spasticity~ Difficulty moving or involuntary movements~ Mental retardation ~ Learing disabilities~ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder~ Seizure disorders~ Skeletal problems~ Vision impairment~ Dental problems~ Hearing impairment~ Trouble swallowing~ Speech impairment~ Bladde and Bowel movement problems~ Breathing difficulties~Feeding trouble~ Skin disorders

Symptoms:~ Variations in muscle tone (stiff or floppy)~ Spasticity- Stiff muscle and exaggerated reflexes.~ Rigidity- Stiff muscle with normal reflexes.~ Ataxia- Lack of muscle coordination.~Tremors or involuntary movements.~ Aptheotosis- Slow, writhing movements.~ Excessive drooling or problems with swallowing.~ Difficulty with sucking or eating.~ Delays in speech development or difficulty speaking. ~ Difficulty walking.~ Favoring one side of the body.~ Delays in reaching motor skills milestones.

Risk to Child~ Premature birth~ Low birth weight~ Breech birth~ Multiple babies- when one baby died iniside of the uterus, the chance that the survivors may have CP increases.

Risk to momCertain infections or heath problems during pregnancy can significantly increase the risk of giving birth to a baby with CP.Infections- Rubella, varicella, cytomegalovirus,toxoplasmosis, syphilis, exposure to toxinc, other conditions...

Prevention:~ Make sure you're vaccinated~ Take care of yourself ~ Prenatal care~Practice good child safety

Celebrities:Geri Jewell Organization:United cerebral Palsy

How is detected?With a brains scans- magnetic resonance imaging- cranial ultrasound- computerized temography- electroence phalogram- laboratory tests- additional tests

Causes:By an abnormality or disruption in brain development. Random mutations in genes that control brain development. Maternal infections that affect the developing fetus. Fetal stroke- a disruption of blood supply to the developing brain . Infant infections- cause inflammation in or around the brain. Lack of oxygen to the brain (rarely a cause). Traumatic head injury to an infant from a motor vehicle accident or fall.

Treatment:~ Medications~ Therapies-Physical-Occupational-Speech and language-Recreational~ Surgical -Orthopedic surgery- Severing nerves
