Physical beauty can be trap as well as a gift, as Farrah Fawcett would be first to testify. In 1976, Fawcett burst into prominence as the comely star of the TV series Charlie's Angels and America's most popular poster Girl. In the years since that series, Fawcett, 39, has struggled to establish herself as a serious actress as well as a pretty face. But producers refuse to consider her for demanding roles. It was only when she determinedly played against her glamorous image that she began to be taken seriously. Two years ago, she surprised skeptics with her portrayal of a battered wife in the powerful TV drama Burning Bed. Now, in the film version Of Extremities, William Mastrosimone's controversial play, she once again dares to look haggard and dishevel, and makes her strongest bid yet to be recognized as a credible dramatic performer. Re - creating role that she also plays onstage, Fawcett stars as Marjorie Easton, woman attacked in her home by a sadistic rapist. After suffering a series of humiliations, she fights her assailant back, manages to take him prisoner and exact revenge against him. The role, which Fawcett calls the most grueling, most intense, most physically demanding and emotionally exhausting of her career, requires stamina and histrionic power that one would never never never have thought her equal to on the basis of her last film appearance, five years ago, in Burt Reynolds demolition Derby called Cannonball Run. The stage version Of Extremities marked a turning point in Fawcett's career. It was when she took over the leading role from Susan Sarandon in an off - Broadway production in 1983 that critics began to take notice of her acting ability. Although she recognized the risks of taking on such a challenging role, she decided to attempt it. People say it was a big risk, Fawcett recalls, but if you feel strongly about something, you don't think about risk. I just knew that I could do the role. The film version Of Extremities was painful to do, she say, just as the stage play had been. Overall, it was such a dark, violent, degrading time, Fawcett say, that even now it's hard for me to watch the film. Unease of piece carried over to making of film, to script meetings and filming. Meetings were very loud and vocal with tempers flying. This was not a film where you could talk to somebody about something else during your lunch hour. It requires extreme concentration. My nerves were always close to edge. The same controversy that audiences will feel on seeing this film carries over to the set. I have never before had problem working with other actors. In this film I had problems with everyone, from the actors to the crew. I notice, especially when I turn tables on Jimmy Russo, that the attitude of men on crew change. They become hostile to me.

Reception Edit

The movie was given a 50% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 8 reviews with an average rating of 5. 8 \ 10. It was also given a 66% audience score. Walter Goodman from New York Times say, smashing, crashing, thrashing battle between Farrah Fawcett and James Russo that takes up about half of Extremities leaves contestants in a state of exhaustion - and movie along with them. Sheila Benson from Los Angeles Times say, although director Robert M. Young does not sensationalize either encounter, he is absolutely successful at making us share her feelings of brutalization and humiliation. The TV Guide gave the movie three stars, saying the film projects powerful rancor of play, but the film also retains some deadening theatricality that doesn't work on screen.

Benefits

Once the Pressure Ulcer is identify, staging and careful documentation of size of wound should be perform. Additional assessments of Ulcer include location, surrounding skin condition, presence of tissue undermining and tunneling, and amount of exudate, odor, and tenderness. Pressure ulcers are classified into six categories. 7 28 Stage I describes intact skin with nonblanchable erythema. Stage II Pressure ulcers have partial - thickness skin damage with possible blister formation, but no subcutaneous tissues visible. Stage III Pressure ulcers have full - thickness skin loss with subcutaneous fat exposed but no muscles, bones, or tendons visible. Stage IV Pressure ulcers have tissue loss with exposure of muscles, bones, tendons, or vital organs. A common hallmark of pressure ulcers is that the area of skin affected typically underestimates the amount of subcutaneous tissue involve. Unstageable Pressure Ulcer refers to wound with an undetermined level of tissue injury because the entire base of wound is covered by slough tissue and / or eschar. Deep tissue injury is a term recently proposed by the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel to describe Pressure Wound that has tissue injury hidden below intact skin. 29 these wounds appear as deep bruises and have high potential for quick deterioration into high - Stage Pressure Ulcer. Pressure Ulcer scale For healing is a commonly used tool developed by NPUAP, which grades pressure ulcers based on size of wound, wound bed tissue type, and exudate amount. 30 Another commonly used scale is bat - Jensen Wound assessment tool which scores wounds based on size, depth, wound edges, tissue undermining, type and amount of necrotic tissue, type and amount of exudate, skin color, presence of edema, induration, granulation, and epithelialization. 31 Other similar tools such as Pressure sore status tool and Sessing scale are also in use. 32 It is more important to evaluate and monitor pressure ulcers in a close and consistent manner than a specific tool used to do so. Further workup is sometimes warranted to define the extent of tissue involve. Because the area of skin breakdown is smaller than the total area affect, CT or MRI can be useful in defining the extent of tissue involved and to determine whether osteomyelitis is present. 33 Wound Cultures are not routinely perform, but should be considered with lack of Ulcer healing and persistent evidence of infection. If wound culture is to be perform, tissue culture is more informative than simply performing swab of wound. 5 Cultures showing more than 10 5 CFU / g are indicative of active tissue infection. In extremities, adequacy of perfusion should be accessed via ankle - brachial index and vascular studies.

The Licensee shall control occupational dose for individual adults, except for planned special exposures under 20. 1206, to following dose limits. Annual limit, which is more limiting of total effective dose equivalent being equal to 5 rems; or sum of deep - dose equivalent and commit dose equivalent to any individual organ or tissue other than the lens of the eye being equal to 50 rems. Annual limits to lens of eye, to skin of the whole body, and to the skin of extremities, which are: lens dose equivalent of 15 rems, and shallow - dose equivalent of 50 rem to skin of the whole body or to the skin of any extremity. Dose received in excess of annual limits, including doses received during accidents, emergencies, and planned special exposures, must be subtracted from limits for planned special exposures that individuals may receive during current year see 20. 1206 and during an individual's lifetime see 20. 1206. When external exposure is determined by measurement with external personal monitoring device, deep - dose equivalent must be used in place of effective dose equivalent, unless effective dose equivalent is determined by dosimetry method approved by NRC. Assign deep - dose equivalent must be for part of the body receiving highest exposure. Assign shallow - dose equivalent must be dose average over contiguous 10 square centimeters of skin receiving highest exposure. Deep - dose equivalent, lens - dose equivalent, and shallow - dose equivalent may be assessed from surveys or other radiation measurements for the purpose of demonstrating compliance with occupational dose limits, if individual monitoring device was not in the region of highest potential exposure, or results of individual monitoring are unavailable. Derive Air concentration and annual limit on intake values are present in Table 1 of Appendix B to Part 20 and may be used to determine an individual's dose and to demonstrate compliance with occupational dose limits. In addition to annual dose limits, licensee shall limit soluble uranium intake by individual to 10 milligrams per week in consideration of chemical toxicity. Licensee shall reduce the dose that individual may be allowed to receive in the current year by the amount of occupational dose received while employed by any other person at 20.
