Nursing assessment with amputation problems
Presented by Ira suarilah Medical-surgical nursing dept. Airlangga university
Amputations are commonly divided into two major categories: • upper-extremity (UE) and • lower-extremity (LE) amputations. • The majority (i.e., 80%) of LE amputations are caused by peripheral vascular disease and diabetes. Trauma due to vehicular accidents or job-related accidents is the second most common cause of LE amputations. • Trauma due to vehicular accidents, severe lacerations from tools and machinery, and frostbite, is the major cause of UE amputations. Curative treatment of tumors is an additional cause of both types of amputations.
LE amputations are commonly classified into the following categories: •toe and partial foot amputation (i.e., Symes); •unilateral (i.e., involvement of only one leg) below-knee; •unilateral above-knee; •hip disarticulation and hemipelvectomy; •bilateral (i.e., involving both legs) below-knee; •bilateral above- and below-knee (i.e., one leg amputated above the knee, one leg amputated below the knee); and •bilateral above-knee (i.e., both legs amputated above the knee).
