Abstract

Unsupervised overexercise in the prison population can lead to exertional rhabdomyolysis, a condition that can lead to kidney damage and/or failure. Knowledge deficit of the risk from this activity will be addressed. Signs and symptoms of rhabdomyolysis and its sequelae will be presented along with a case study. Inter-departmental responsibilities in the correctional setting will be considered. The importance of recognizing the signs and symptoms of this condition by nurses in various clinical settings will also be explored.
