5 PATHOPHYSIOLOGY: (include APA reference and in text citations) (Mechanics of disease, risk factors, how to
diagnose, how to treat, prognosis, and include any genetic factors impacting the diagnosis, prognosis or
treatment)
Fracture of cervical vertebra is an injury involving the neck that results from a rapid forceful, backward motion that could
be due to a vehicle accident, sports injury, falls and assaults. Risk factors include osteoporosis, conditions predisposing to
spinal rigidity such as ankylosing spondylitis. Acute presentation is usually with mechanism of cervical hyperextension
and complaints of neck pain, stiffness or headaches with neurologic symptoms. Treatment includes stability determined by
imaging, pain control as needed with opiate analgesics, muscle relaxants, acetaminophen, surgical fixation, wearing neck
collar for 8-14 weeks.

4 DEVELOPMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS:
Eriksons stage of psychosocial development:
Inferiority

Identity vs.

Role Confusion/Diffusion

Trust vs. Mistrust


Autonomy vs. Doubt & Shame
Initiative vs. Guilt
Industry vs.
Intimacy vs. Isolation
Generativity vs. Self absorption/Stagnation
Ego Integrity vs. Despair

Check one box and give the textbook definition (with citation and reference) of both parts of Ericksons developmental stage for your
patients age group: stagnation refers to the feeling of a lack of purpose in life. In middle age , people discover a sense of contributing
to the world usually through family and work (generativity) or they may feel a lack of purpose (stagnation). (Myers, 2008, p. 87)
Reference:
Myers, D. G., (2008). Development through the life span: Psychology in everyday life (pp. 78) New York, Worth Publishers.
Describe the stage your patient is in and give the characteristics that the patient exhibits that led you to your determination:
The patient is in a stagnation stage. She stated that she is very depressed by her life and thinks that she is unfortunate, especially at
this point because of her multiple falls and being in the hospital with too much pain. The only person she can count on while in need
is her mother.

Describe what impact of disease/condition or hospitalization has had on your patients developmental stage of life: Hospitalization has
played a huge role in the stagnation stage of her life. She seems more depressed in this situation.
