      Authors: Johnstone; Laura M.; Roshanravan, Baback; Rundell, Sean D.; Kestenbaum, Bryan; Baker, Sarah Fay; Berry, Donna L.; McGough, Ellen
      Abstract: imageBackground: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a common pathology encountered by acute care physical therapists. CKD is associated with reduced physical function and fall risk. The purpose of this study was to (1) examine the test-retest reliability of standard and instrumented physical performance measures and (2) describe the relationship between subjective fall risk and objective physical performance in people with CKD.Methods: Twenty-one adults with CKD completed a battery of standard and instrumented physical performance measures 1 week apart. Standard measures were the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB), gait speed, 5 times sit-to-stand (FSTS), 2-minute walk test (2MWT), and quadriceps (QS) and grip (GS) strength dynamometry. Instrumented measures included parameters of gait, sit-stand, and postural sway. Intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC) assessed test-retest reliability, and Pearson correlations (adjusted for age) assessed the relationships between the Fall Risk Questionnaire (FRQ) and standard physical performance.Results: Excellent to moderate test-retest reliability was demonstrated in the standard and instrumented physical performance measures. A subset of standard measures was significantly associated with the FRQ score.Conclusions: This study supports the clinical reliability of a battery of standard physical performance measures and a subset of instrumented parameters for use in adults with CKD. The FRQ may be useful for screening fall risk considering its relationship to objective physical performance.

  • Increasing Functional Measurement Tool Utilization by Acute Physical
           Therapists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Betts; Traci Tiemann; Davis, Kristin; Palagonia, Christie; Walag, Homer B.
      Abstract: imageBackground: At an acute academic medical center, an electronic medical record (EMR) clarity report revealed that proper documentation of a functional measurement tool during acute physical therapy (PT) initial evaluation and reevaluation sessions occurred only 12% of the time. A formal quality improvement project was initiated to correct this gap in recommended best practice.Objective: To increase utilization and documentation of functional measurement tools in acute PT evaluation and reevaluation sessions from baseline of 12% to 100% based on the APTA recommendations for best standard of care in clinical practice.Methods: This quality improvement project involved acute PT staff and faculty in an academic medical center assessing a gap in best practice. Barriers to best clinical practice were assessed and targeted interventions included education and awareness of baseline performance compared with expectations, streamlining usability of the EMR documentation flowsheet and creating resources to address gaps in knowledge, performance, or access to available functional tools. Data were collected at project initiation, midterm, and after final interventions through manual chart reviews, EMR clarity reports, and a custom PT staff survey.Results: Documentation of functional measurements tools improved from the baseline of 12% to 89.5% after full project interventions. Follow-up survey results indicated that PTs' perception of providing the highest quality of care increased by 29 percentage points, from 71% to 100%. Improved diversity of tool usage was also noted. Of the tools documented, Activity Measure for Post-Acute Care (AMPAC) functional measurement tool was selected 90% of the time at baseline and dropped to 66% post-intervention, allowing for a 24% increase in diversity of tool selection.Conclusions: Accurate discovery of the primary and secondary factors impacting tool use with targeted interventions yielded a 7.5-fold improvement (from 12% to 89.5%) in performance and documentation of functional measurement tools during PT evaluation and reevaluation sessions in the acute care setting. The project also highlighted limitations of education alone in effectively promoting adherence to best practice standards. The increased utilization and documentation of functional measurement tools has improved PT practice in this academic medical center through more objective detection of functional changes across the continuum. It should also promote targeted PT interventions, which should improve PT effectiveness and potentially even impact hospital length of stay.

  • Two Balance Measures as Poststroke Predictors of Ambulation Status at
           Discharge From Inpatient Rehabilitation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Berry; Olivia; Voigtmann, Christina; Curran, Christopher; Dawson, Nicole; Dominguez, Jose; Beato, Morris
      Abstract: imagePurpose: Early predictors of the degree of walking ability poststroke are vital considering the decreased length of stay in most inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs). Prediction of functional walking capability upon discharge from IRFs requires more investigation. This study aimed to (1) determine whether the Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke (PASS) and the Berg Balance Scale (BBS) can predict an individual's IRF discharge poststroke gait category and (2) establish cut-off scores for these assessments to better forecast gait category upon discharge.Methods: A total of 180 individuals with an admitting stroke diagnosis were assessed with both balance measures and the 10-m walking test at admission and discharge from inpatient rehabilitation. Participants were stratified by gait speed into 4 groups (nonambulators: 0 m/s; household ambulators: 0.8 m/s).Results: Both the admission PASS and the BBS scores may predict patients who will be ambulatory and performed similarly in differentiating between gait classifications upon discharge from inpatient rehabilitation (P < .01). Cut-off scores of 6 or less on the BBS (sensitivity 96%; specificity 83%) and 17 on the PASS (sensitivity 92%; specificity 90%) were established to predict nonambulators, and cut-off scores of 29 or more on the BBS (sensitivity 92%; specificity 86%) and 30 on the PASS (sensitivity 80%; specificity 87%) were established to predict community ambulators.Conclusions: These results can inform clinicians of poststroke patients' walking prognosis and advise discharge needs early in a patient's IRF stay.

  • Troponin Elevation Following Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Acute
           Coronary Syndrome: Clinical Decision-Making for Early Mobility

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Miner; Daniel G.; Parcetich, Kevin; Smith, Kellen
      Abstract: imageBackground: Recent advances in revascularization procedures have improved survival rates for individuals with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, evidence to guide clinical decision-making for early mobility following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is extremely limited.Purpose: The purpose of this clinical perspective and literature review is to provide context for the clinical interpretation of cardiac troponin (cTn) levels in individuals with ACS following revascularization via PCI and present an evidence-supported clinical decision-making algorithm to guide clinicians in the appropriate timing of initiation of early mobility for individuals with ACS.Methods: A literature review on cTn values is presented to guide the clinical interpretation of laboratory values for clinical decision-making. A comparison of consensus-based guidelines for early mobility is presented as the basis for proposing a novel algorithm for clinical decision-making in individuals with ACS following PCI.Conclusion: The clinical value and utility of postprocedural cTn levels in individuals with ACS following PCI is to help understand prognosis and mortality but does not provide sufficient information about the safety of initiating early mobility following PCI. Decisions for initiation of early mobility in this population using the proposed evidence-supported algorithm may help avoid unnecessary prolongation of bed rest.

  • Functional Improvement During Prolonged Hospitalization in a Patient With
           Acute Myeloid Leukemia Utilizing Physical and Occupational Therapy
           Comanagement: A Case Report

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Strikwerda; Jessica A.; Bodensteiner Schmitt, Emily A.
      Abstract: imageBackground and Purpose: Being physically active and mobile in the acute care setting has been shown to improve functional outcomes in individuals with cancer. Patient participation in occupational (OT) and physical therapy (PT) activities contributes to this; however, specific interventions and strategies are rarely described in the rehabilitation literature. Even more limited are descriptions of the purpose and implementation of OT and PT cotreatment therapy sessions. This case report describes OT and PT treatment interventions, including cotreatment therapy sessions, used in the management of a patient with prolonged hospitalization.Case Description: A 65-year-old man with a medical diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia was admitted to the hospital for abdominal pain, dehydration, and poor appetite. His hospital course totaled 101 days and included 27 days in the intensive care unit (ICU). Medical complications included graft-versus-host disease and recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding. At therapy evaluation, voluntary motor activation was not visualized or felt during transfers. The patient had impaired balance and impaired cognition, and he needed total assistance to sit at the edge of the bed.Intervention: The patient received 13 weeks of OT and PT treatment in the ICU and continued until hospital discharge. OT and PT cotreatment therapy sessions were used throughout this period of patient care to maximize the patient's recovery of mobility and endurance.Results: At hospital discharge, the patient was independent in bed mobility and ambulation using a 4-wheeled walker. He was able to navigate 6 stair steps using handrails. For activities of daily living, he was independent in grooming, upper body dressing, toileting, lower body dressing, and showering from a seated position.Discussion: The use of both cotreatment and individual therapy sessions may be beneficial for individuals with cancer at different stages of functional recovery in the acute care setting. Cotreatment therapy sessions were used in this case when both OT and PT providers could address their different therapy goals during the same treatment session. The patient in this case report initially required total assistance for functional mobility and activity and achieved near-full independence at hospital discharge.

  • The Role of Physical Therapy Following CAR T-Cell Therapy: A Case Report

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Firestein; Helaine
      Abstract: imageBackground: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) affects 7 out of 100 000 people in the United States every year. Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy is approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat patients with relapsed/refractory DLBCL who have not responded to 2 prior lines of therapy. CAR T-cell therapy can lead to debilitating side effects necessitating rehabilitation intervention.Case Description: This case report details a 38-year-old woman with refractory DLBCL who received CAR T-cell therapy. The patient experienced grade 2 cytokine release syndrome and grade 4 immune effector cell-associated neurotoxicity syndrome, which resulted in, among other symptoms, lower extremity paraplegia. Upon medical stabilization, the patient was referred to physical therapy.Outcomes: The patient participated in acute care rehabilitation for 8 weeks and progressed significantly toward her prior level of function before being discharged to an inpatient rehabilitation facility. Upon discharge, the patient was able to ambulate with a rolling walker, a knee orthosis, and supervision for safety and had initiated stair training.Discussion/Conclusion: Physical therapists need to understand and recognize the range of side effects that can occur following CAR T-cell therapy. As more patients receive CAR T-cell therapy to treat malignancies, acute care oncology units will undoubtedly be challenged with patients exhibiting severe side effects. Physical therapists are well trained to address physical impairments resulting from CAR T-cell therapy's side effects and will play a vital role in these patients' interdisciplinary care.
