CPNE musculoskeletal management

  1. 1 I am stuck...I have no idea how to do abduction and adduction, flexion and extention. I feel comfortable and confident in every other area of care. Is there anyone that can guide me on the best resource. Thanks in advance.

    If I am not mistaken flex/extesion and adduct/abduction were in your Health Safety materials. A Fundamentals of Nursing text will show you how with pictures

    abduct is away from the body,adduct is toward the body, flex is when you make a muscle and extension is when you straighten your hand outward. hope this help. also check you med-surg book on pg199-201 there are some pictures
