DERMATOMES IN SPINAL INJURY

Hi guys,

Hope you had a good week . I have tried to simplify the meaning of Dermatomes in spinal cord injury. If you work in an area where Spinal Injuies are treated, you may well have to take on the challenge of checking and recording the patient's sensation post injury. Some units have a chart for this purpose.
Even if you do not have a chart, you can document your findings in your nurse's
notes. Remember to follow your institution's policies.
Enjoy learning more about Spinal Injuries.
Have a great week!
