This poster takes an in depth look at Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). It reviews the commons signs and symptoms of the disease, the different ways it can present, why clinicians should pay closer attention to ALS, and the pathophysiology behind the disease. While exploring the pathophysiology of ALS, the poster also explores spontaneous ALS versus familial ALS and some of the known genetic mutations that occur causing this disease. The poster concludes with a recommendation for implications for nursing practice and a summary of the contents.
