Title: An Approach To The Patient With Suspected Post Polio Syndrome

MEDICAL ADVISORY BOARD of the POLIO OUTREACH ADVISORY COUNCIL

Joshua Benditt, MD, Pulmonologist; Bill Kelly, Physical Therapist; Evan Cantini, MD, Physiatrist; Dennis Lang, RN, MPH, Polio Survivor; Dianna Chamblin, MD, Physiatrist; Lawrence R. Robinson, MD, Physiatrist; Margarette Forgette, MD, Physiatrist; and Mark Sumi, MD, Neurologist.
Abstract/Extract: Polio survivors are at risk for the occurrence of certain physiologic changes in the nervous system which result in a characteristic set of symptoms now known as Post Polio Syndrome. In addition to these unexpected physiological changes there are anticipated complications such as arthritis, scoliosis, and entrapment syndromes that frequently accompany paralytic conditions. These anticipated complications are not the problems that distinguish PPS from other diseases of the nervous system. Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) is a major chronic illness and one which poses unique problems to its survivors and their physicians.

NOTES

It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore be in any way interpreted as an endorsement.

People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.

"Source" in the context of this catalogue primarily means original author. In a few cases it will be an organisation or conference.
