How can you apply cpr in patient with spinal cord injury?

The same as others. Always perform CPR in a patient until you know exactly what the injury is. Spinal cord injury in the thoracic and lumbar spine is compatible with life, and good CPR could save this patient. However, acute high cervical spine injury could render CPR "futile" depending on the exact injury. But unless you know exactly the injury, continue with CPR until someone with medical expertise takes over care.
The same as with a . Patient without such an injury except one has to keep the area of injury that may be unstable, protected. As CPR is done with a patient lying on back on a firm surface, this is usually not a problem unless there is a cervical spine injury that may be unstable that then would need to be protected by someone stabilizing the head and neck during cpr. This ideally should be a trained medical person.

How can spinal cord injury patients manage their body temperature?

Environmentally. Good question. Patients with spinal cord injury (particularly higher level, more complete injuries) are 'poikilothermic' meaning that their environment dictates their body temperature. Out in the heat, a person with quadriplegia may run fever. In the cold, hypothermia is a real concern. The best solution: get out of the elements. Dress appropriately, layer, and monitor body temp while outdoors. Read more...
Depends on level. This really depends on the level of spinal cord injury & it's completeness with levels above t6 being the level that affects these patients the most as to adjusting for cold & heat. They need to stay in environments that can be temperature controlled, ideally. Otherwise, they need to be dressed appropriately for changes of temperature & aware as well as educated concerning this aspect of sci. Read more...
