Risk Factors associated with Neurological Deficits

  1. 1
    Hi guys,

    I need a little help on this topic.
    My class will do a little presentation like a "Client teaching" and this topic is so broad that we have to just address general ones.

    If you can give me risk factors associated with Neurological deficits according to age bracket that may apply to:

    Kids
    Adult
    Elderly

    For example:
    For kids, wear helmet when playing sports , yada yada yada.... because this may lead to spinal injury, or brain damage.


    So can you please help me think of some more?

    Thank you very much!

    Adults---Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Chernobyl, Fukishima etc.

    When adult females are overexposed to radiation while pregnant, there is risk of severe health issues to their baby. When an unborn baby is exposed to large doses of radiation during the more sensitive stages of development (especially between weeks 8 and 15 of pregnancy), the health consequences can be very serious, especially to the brain.

    If occurring during the 8- to15-week stage of pregnancy research has found a high rate of brain damage that resulted in lower IQ and even mental retardation. They also suffered increased risk of other birth defects and stunted growth.

    We are happy to help with homework but we won't do it for you. we will help you develop critical thinking skills to come to your own conclusion.

    Think about kids. What poses a danger to them and at what age? Car seats? Stranger danger? Protective gear? Teenagers Sex, drugs, alcohol? Texting while driving? Public media safety? How would you gear that to all age groups? What behaviors make teenagers take risks?

    Adults. What would protect adults? Seat belts? Proper gear? Healthy habits? smoking? Drinking ? drugs? Safe Sex?

    The elderly? What is a danger to them? Money scams? Strangers? Falling? tripping in the home? Stairs carpets throw rugs? How would these items impact the environment? What senses are not as good with the elderly?

    Thank you for your input.

    Though, yes, I don't expect you guys to do the homework for me. Based from the questions you just laid out, I really thought about a lot of things that I can start from.

    Thank you very much!
