DPT Final Presentation

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

I gave my final presentation today on my case study that I have been working on for 8 months titled, “Upper Extremity Prosthetic Fitting and Training Utilizing the Touch Bionics i-digitsTM for a Quadruple Amputee: A Case Report”. The presentation went really well. I am very passionate about this research project and felt that I was able to adequately express that to my audience of approximately 50. It is nice to see so much hard work pay-off and I must give thanks to my advisors, clinical instructors, and the patient for all of the assistance, dedication, patience, and support along the way.

Cardiopulmonary Group Presentations

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Today in my cardiopulmonary course we presented information in regards to pulmonary interventions. The topics include Diaphragmatic Breathing & Pursed Lip Breathing, Stacked and Paced Breathing, Cough and Forced Expiratory Technique (Huff), Assisted Cough/Huff, Bronchial Drainage, Chest PT: Percussion Vibration Shaking, Active Cycle of Breathing, Autogenic Drainage and Pulmonary Mechanical Devices. All of the presentations included demonstration and practice so that we could become familiar with the previous techniques. Some folks may think of a physical therapist as a musculoskeletal expert. This is true but we are also experts when it comes to breathing mechanics and techniques. In the hospital, physical therapists will often times treat patients with emphysema, asthma, cystic fibrosis, etc. There are many indications for improving breathing mechanics and techniques. You need oxygen to survive and PT can help to improve/strengthen the musculature, postures, and techniques in order to have more efficient breathing.

Autism Presentation

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

I am taking a course called Special Needs & Inclusion for my degree. It covers the basics of the different categories of disabilities and general Special Education. We have begun to use a flipped classroom approach, where us students are the ones teaching our peers the material, then our professor supplements whatever we teach. We started this today with my group, covering the Autism category. We accidentally thought we were covering both ADHD and Autism, so we created double the work for ourselves! Our professor was very impressed though and didn’t have much to add. This video is an interview of an autistic child we incorporated into our presentation.
