Cerebrovascular Crises Leading to Major Neurological Disabilities and Rehabilitation Implications for the Occupational Therapist
Research paper
Description: 

A Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA) is the most common label ascribed to people who have experienced strokes. Ischemic Stroke, Hemorrhagic Stroke, and Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIA) are the most common causes for neurological disability that impairs quality of life. CVA’s can be the result of a variety of morbidities, including thrombotic occlusions, atherosclerotic calcification, ruptured aneurysms, abnormal blood pressure, and irregular blood flow, associated with irregular dynamics. Understanding underlying CVA etiologies is essential for Medical and Allied Health professionals and their clients to affect prevention and treatment. Occupational Therapy assessment, interventions, and outcome evaluations are vital in the overall rehabilitation process. The focus of Occupational Therapy on Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Functional Mobility can allow a patient to gain the skills needed to live as independently as possible after the occurrence of a CVA. This project explored the epidemiology, pathogenesis, brain anatomy, symptoms depending on location, risk factors, prevention, emergent treatment, and Occupational Therapy rehabilitation implication for multifarious types of CVA.
