Elena Miguel is author of Chapter 21 of the book “Cuidados al paciente con alteraciones traumatológicas y ortopédicas” (Care for patients with Traumatology and Orthopaedic injuries) published in 2011.
This chapter is “Lesiones nerviosas por compresión” (Nerve injuries by compression). We can see the different aetiology and levels of these kinds of injuries. The two more frequent syndromes are described: Carpal tunnel syndrome (at the wrist) and Tarsal tunnel syndrome (at the ankle). Descriptions of symptoms, diagnosis and treatment in both injuries are included.
The nursing care is directed to both a conservative treatment and perioperative time giving importance to health education for the patient and their family.
