CM_Dec 2009_2.jpg


This is personal for me.  I need your help!

A good friend mine just found out that their teenage child has been diagnosed with Chiari Malformation.

They have been referred to a Neurologist, and the medical process has started.

Regardless, they need all the information that they can find as they make this journey.

Please feel free to forward any information via my blog (www.technicaljones.com) or Twitter (@TechnicalJones)!

Thanks!

Chiari Malformation
(Definition & Symptoms from Mayo Clinic)

Definition: Chiari malformation is a condition in which brain tissue protrudes into your spinal canal. It occurs when part of your skull is abnormally small or misshapen, pressing on your brain and forcing it downward. Chiari malformation is uncommon, but improved imaging tests have led to more frequent diagnoses.

The adult form, called Chiari malformation type I, develops as the skull and brain are growing. As a result, signs and symptoms may not occur until late childhood or adulthood. The most common pediatric form, called Chiari malformation type II, is present at birth (congenital).

Treatment of Chiari malformation depends on the form, severity and associated symptoms. Regular monitoring, medications and surgery are treatment options. In some cases, no treatment is needed.


Symptoms: Doctors categorize Chiari malformation into four types, depending on the anatomy of the brain tissue that is displaced into the spinal canal, and whether developmental abnormalities of the brain or spine are present.

Many people with Chiari malformation have no signs or symptoms and don't need treatment. Their condition is detected only when tests are performed for unrelated disorders. However, depending on the type and severity, Chiari malformation can cause a number of problems.

P2P (Peer-to-Peer)

Definition: A network structure in which the computers share processing and storage tasks as equivalent members of the network. Different from a client/server network, in which computers are assigned specific roles.

A general term for popular file-sharing systems like gnutella, in which there is no central repository of files. Instead, files can be stored on--and retrieved from--any user's computer.

CPOE (Computerized Provider Order Entry)

Definition: A computer application that allows a physician's orders for diagnostic and treatment services (such as medications, laboratory, and other tests) to be entered electronically instead of being recorded on order sheets or prescription pads.

The computer compares the order against standards for dosing, checks for allergies or interactions with other medications, and warns the physician about potential problems.
