Patient discussion about client

Q. I ask a client's Dr. to script flexaril for a lower back spasm and he made it for a drug called zanaflex? I am unfamiliar with zanaflex, what is the difference between it and flexaril 25mg? Benefits? Risks? I got him to order the air mattress and extended bed because client is 6'3" and is already bedridden on my 1st day..try to beat the skin breakdown, already stage I decubitis ulcers. I tried to talk the client into slideboard and lift away arm wheelchair...noway..he wants to walk bent with a rolling walker. He already had a lift chair delivered, so he just goes from bed to lift chair. He refuses to let me bathe him. He can't see, and he has me check his draw up on insulin to make sure it's right. He sends the P.T. man right back out the door after he signs the sheet. Difficult pt.!

A. Flexeril and Zanaflex are different drugs but are both muscle relaxants. There are hardly any differences between the two, clinically wise. If the doctor thought one is better than the other for your client I would suggest you take his advice and use the one he gave you.

In addition, because the segments of group [G.sub.i] are transmitted once on channel [C.sub.i] every [n.sub.i] time units and are played during time units [n.sub.i+1] - 1 to [n.sup.i.sub.+]2 - 2, the client downloads a segment of group [G.sub.i] either during time units [n.sub.i+1] - 1 to [n.sup.i.sub.+]2 - 2 or during time units [n.sub.i-1] to [n.sub.i+1] - 2 (i.e., before the downloading of segment [S.sub.j]).
Figure 4(b) illustrates that the client downloads segments [S.sub.j] to [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] during time units [n.sub.i+1] - 1 to [(j + [n.sub.i+1] - 1)/2] and does not download any segment during time units [(j + [n.sub.i+1] - 1)/2] + 1 to j.
(1) For t < [n.sub.i-1], a client downloads no segment on channel [C.sub.i] because these segments will appear again during time units [n.sub.i-1] to [n.sub.i+1] - 1.
Then, the client downloads the blocks in which these parity symbols are located, namely, the third and fourth blocks.
5, suppose that a client downloads [Download.sub.R] of the total number of parity symbols and an attacker corrupts a part of the downloaded parity symbols during update.
In the proposed scheme, the client downloads only part of the parity data for update operations.
In the remaining time before the timeout, the client downloaded the highest quality enhancement layers from the server located behind the bottleneck link.
