To demonstrate the major reflexes useful in the clinics.
Read and follow the instructions in Lab 4 manual.
Observe all the Personal protective precautions.
You need a second person (your subject) on whom you will perform these reflexes.
Make sure your subject observes all the personal protective precautions
Make sure you record your data findings as direct by your manual into the specific tables provide in each of the activities in the lab report sheet.
Complete the report sheet provided and submit the report sheet with your formal lab report.
THE REPORT SHEET PROVIDE IS NOT YOUR FORMAL LAB REPORT. EVERY FORMAL LAB REPORT MUST BE SUBMIT WITH THE COMPLETED REPORT SHEET.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE MASTERED HOW TO WRITE A FORMAL LAB REPORT PROVIDED ON YOUR D2L.
Reflexes can be categorize as either autonomic or somatic.
Autonomic reflexes are not subject to conscious control, are mediate by
the autonomic division of the nervous system,
and usually involve the activation of smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, and glands.
Involuntary reflexes are very fast, traveling in milliseconds.
The fastest impulses can reach 320 miles per hour.
involve stimulation of skeletal muscles by the somatic or voluntary division of the nervous system.
Reflex testing is an important diagnostic tool for assessing the condition of the nervous system.
Distort, exaggerate, or reflexes that
are absent may indicate degeneration or pathology of portions of the nervous system,
often before other signs are apparent.
If the spinal cord is damage, then reflex tests can help determine the area of injury.
For example, motor nerves above an injure area may be unaffect,
whereas motor nerves at or below the damage area may be unable to perform the usual reflex activities
