range

 [rānj]
1. the difference between the upper and lower limits of a variable or of a series of values.
2. an interval in which values sampled from a population, or the values in the population itself, are known to lie.
range of accommodation the total amount of accommodative power of the eye; the difference in refractive power of the eye when adjusted for near and for far vision. The amplitude diminishes as age increases because elasticity of the lens is decreased.
range of audibility the range between the extreme frequencies of sound waves beyond which the human ear perceives no sound: lower limit, 16 to 20 cycles per second; upper limit, 18,000 to 20,000 cycles per second.
range of motion the range, measured in degrees of a circle, through which a joint can be extended and flexed; see also range of motion exercises.

A statistical measure of the dispersion or variation of values determined by the endpoint values themselves or the difference between them; for example, in a group of children aged 6, 8, 9, 10, 13, and 16 years, the range would be from 6-16 or, alternately, 10 (16 minus 6).

Patient discussion about range

Q. what is a safe tumor marker number range?

A. depends on the marker...most of the markers are materials that found normally in our body. and there are a number of markers and their levels differentiate. what marker do you mean?

Q. does anyone know the range for childrens blood sugar?

A. The range for children's blood sugar level is quite similar to that of adults, and should be below 126 mg/dl after a 12 hour fast, or under 200 mg/dl on a random testing. 2 following testings that show pathologic results define diabetes.

Q. How do I gain range of motion after shoulder surgery I'm 31 years old and had a shoulder replacment last year. I still don't know why my joint gave out and 4 Orthopedic Surgeons couldn't tell me either. I have limited Range of Motion and the Dr. seems to think that because of my "age" I was less likley to get full range back. I refuse to believe that, does anyone have any suggestions on how to gain ROM back?

A. i guess you go to physiotherapy no?
that is their job. to give you range of motion after injuries, surgeries ect. they'll give you exercises specially for your condition. when i had an accident i broke my leg hip and i needed 2 months of physiotherapy that helped very much.
