Quiz – Evaluation of Mobility in Persons with Limb Loss Using the Amputee Mobility Predictor and the Prosthesis Evaluation Questionnaire Mobility Subscale: A 6-Month Retrospective Chart Review, Brian Kaluf, BSE,CP

  1. (True or False) ____________ The article concludes that standardized outcome measures are poorly understood and not consistently adopted in prosthetic clinics.
  2. (True or False) ____________ The K-level system stands for Medicare Fundamental Classification Level (MFCL).
  3. (True or False) ____________ Patient self-report was shown to be less reliable than standardized outcome measures.
  4. [Select the correct response.] The MDC reported for the AP is ____________ and the MDC for the PEQ-MS is ____________.
    • A. 3.9 ... 0.6
    • B. 4.3 ... 0.5
    • C. 3.4 ... 0.8
  5. [Select the correct response.] It was hypothesized that mean AMPPRO and PEQ-MS scores _____________ differ significantly between transtibial and transfemoral amputation levels and across K-levels.
    • A. would
    • B. would not
    • C. could
    • D. may
  6. (True or False) _____________ Outcome measure scores were recorded in slightly less than half of the patient charts reviewed.
  7. (True or False) _____________ The number of K3 patients was much higher than any other K-level in the study and transtibial amputation level was more frequent than transfemoral among all K-levels.
  8. [Select the correct response.] _____________ patients were the most prevalent, composing 75% of all patients.
    • A. K1
    • B. K2
    • C. K3
    • D. K4
  9. (True or False) _____________ There were no K4 patients during the period reviewed.
  10. [Select the correct response.] _____________ amputation level was three times __________ frequent than _____________ amputation level in the charts reviewed.
    • A. Transfemoral ... less ... transtibial
    • B. Transtibial ... more ... transfemoral
    • C. Transfemoral ... more ... transtibial
    • D. Transtibial ... less ... transfemoral
  11. [Select the correct response.] The CHAMP was developed to ______________.
    • A. help accommodate lower-functioning patients
    • B. more clearly determine differences between lower- and higher-functioning patients
    • C. address patients with higher mobility and higher functioning exclusively
  12. (True or False) _____________A limitation of this study was the small sample sizes of transfemoral versus transtibial amputation level patients, as well as the high frequency of K3 patients.
