A&P II Disease Project Assignment: Each student is to create a disease presentat

A&P II Disease Project
Assignment: Each
student is to create a disease presentation PowerPoint over two diseases as
well as create a flow chart of how each disease affects the body. Diseases must
affect a system that is covered in the material this semester (in other words
you can’t do something from A&P I). You can choose any diseases you want,
and do not have to clear them with me first. Diseases can be ones covered in the
class or ones not listed.
Guidelines for disease presentation PowerPoint:
Must
be saved as a PowerPoint document and saved as last name and diseases presentation (ex. Spear Huntingon’s, Multiple
Sclerosis presentation)
Should
be visually appealing (use color, nice backgrounds, pictures (gross is
good))
Information
covered for each disease must include:
o Name
of disease and a brief history
o Signs
and symptoms
o Body
system(s) or tissue(s) affected (should include how the body system/tissue is
being broken down) (worth more points see rubric)
o How
that body system(s) or tissue(s) affected normally functions (worth more points
see rubric)
o Transmission
or epidemiology (includes morbidity, mortality and prevalence rates for the
diseases)
o Prevention
or treatment
o Something
interesting about the disease (ex. How common is it, what is the likelihood of
survival, did anyone famous die of it, do you have a personal story about
it?……..)
Slides
should include at least:
o Cover
slide with name of diseases and your name
o At
least 12 additional slides (6 per disease)
o Slide
with at least 3 reliable references with proper bibliographies (can use
textbook as one resource)—MLA format
Do not use Wikipedia (not
a reliable source). You must use at
least one non-internet resource.
Do not plagiarize the
material from any source, including the internet. All material needs to be documented (excluding
pictures). If a person is caught plagiarizing, he/she will receive a zero for
the assignment.
Guidelines for flow charts of how each disease affects the
body:
Should show progression of
diseases on body’s systems/tissues
Includes organs and
tissues involved
Included progression of signs
and symptoms
Can include
pictures
Can be
more than one page/slide long, but no more than three pages/slides for
each disease
Must
be either a word document or powerpoint format (.doc/.docx or .ppt/pptx)
Must
be saved as last name and diseases
flow charts (ex. Spear Huntingon’s, Multiple Sclerosis flow charts)
Criteria Possible Points Points Earned
Following Directions:
-Number of presentation slides (minimum of
12)
-Number of flow chart pages (max of 3 each)
-Files named properly
– Disease presentation saved as ppt
-Flow charts saved as doc or ppt
-Deadlines met
Disease Information:
-Name and history
-Signs and symptoms
Body systems or tissues affected
-How the body normally functions
-Transmission/epidemiology
-Prevention/treatment
-Interesting facts
References (minimum of 3): proper
bibliography included or no credit
Flow charts:
-Includes progression of disease on body
-Includes organs and tissues involved
-Includes progression of signs and symptoms
-Follows progression of disease as outlined in
disease ppt presentation
Overall presentation of material:
-Disease presentation: pictures, well worded,
good information
-Flow charts: flow well, coherent, neat and
presentable, well worded

Welcome to the cardiovascular system discussion. Review the following case: Par

Welcome to the cardiovascular system discussion.
Review the following case:
Part I—The Discovery
Cast of Characters
Sam Garrison—Detective
Roma and Clint Underhill—The hot couple
Kavita Dickson and Larry Gonzales—emt paramedics
Renee Volenbach—Physiologist in the Biology Department at Noletown University
Friday, 7PM
Roma and Clint Underhill had both had a long day. They were the owners of a successful real estate company in Desert Palm. Each had several clients, and the strain of the current real estate market was getting to them. It had been an unusually cool day for January, with temperatures hovering around 60 degrees. On coming home they decided to relax in their hot tub with some wine. While Roma changed from her work clothes, Clint said that he would join her in the hot tub after he took his Lasix.
Saturday, 8AM
“911… Please state your emergency.” “Oh, Oh, I… I… ”
“Ma’am, please calm down and tell me the address.”
“I think…, yes, OK, it’s… it’s 1223 Oak Creek Drive.” “What is the problem, please?”
“I’m the maid for Mr. and Mrs. Underhill and… and I didn’t find them in the house when I came in this morning, so I looked around outside. I just found them in their hot tub out back. They are under the water. Please come, please come now!”
“Yes, ma’am, I’m alerting the EMTs and an ambulance will be on the way. Please go out front and wait, so the paramedics can find the address quickly.”
Saturday, 8:10AM
Paramedics Kavita Dickson and Larry Gonzales brought the ambulance to a stop at the end of a long driveway next to an impressive two-story mansion. The maid was on the front steps and quickly directed them to the back patio where the hot tub could be seen.
Empty bottles of wine were on the ledge surrounding the hot tub. Kavita quickly climbed up the steps and saw the bodies of the Underhills on the bottom of the hot tub. As she got into the water, she exclaimed, “This water seems really hot. Let’s see if we can get them out.” Larry climbed in after her and together they dragged the bodies out of the hot tub and onto the patio. It was obvious that both had been dead for some time. Kavita called the dispatcher.
“Listen, Linda, this hot tub case is a DOA, but something is not right. How about sending the medical examiner and a detective out to look the situation over. Tell them to bring a thermometer!”
Part II—The Investigation
Saturday, 9:30AM
“115 degrees! What is this thing doing so hot?” Sam Garrison asked Kavita as he removed the thermometer from the water.
He was investigating the death of Roma and Clint Underhill, prominent real estate brokers in Desert Palm. “This hot tub should be no more than 109 degrees.”
He remembered reading a Consumer Product Safety Commission flyer on hot tubs and wondered if the tub was associated with the death. The bodies were being taken away for autopsy as he took in the scene.
“Hmm. What about these bottles of wine? It looks like they had a party—all by themselves! The medical examiner will check their blood alcohol level (bal, or blood alcohol concentration—bac) and we’ll be able to see his complete report on Monday. We may even be able to determine their cause of death with that information. I’ll ask the maid about any medications.”
He went into the sunroom off of the patio to where the maid was being consoled by another officer. “Ma’am, can you tell me if the Underhills were taking any medicine?”
“Well, sir, I know he was complaining about having to use the bathroom a lot since he returned from the doctor’s office about two weeks ago. You might look in the cabinet over the sink where they keep aspirin and such.”
Sam looked where she indicated and found a recently filled bottle of Lasix.
Monday Afternoon
Monday afternoon, the medical examiner phoned Sam with the following information:
bal (Blood Alcohol) of the couple was .20
Roma weighed 120 lbs; Clint weighed 160 lbs
Time of death estimated at 2am Saturday morning
There was a therapeutic level of Lasix in Mr. Underhill’s blood, but none in Mrs. Underhill’s blood
Part III—The Final Report
Later Monday Afternoon
Detective Garrison returned to police headquarters and, after reading the medical examiner’s complete report, began the process of writing his own explanation of what happened to the Underhills. As he wrote, he thought about all that had happened and began to wonder about the physiology associated with the couple’s death. The level of alcohol found by the medical examiner was high but was not necessarily sufficient to cause their death, but was it a contributing factor?
Please discuss this case. Feel free to post more than once. You should post at the minimum answers to 2 of the following questions along with 1 response to another student’s post. Posts need to be at least 200 words in length.
You must first post your answer before you will be allowed to view other posts.
What were the specific effects of the Lasix, hot water, and alcohol on the couple’s blood pressure?
Describe 2 mechanisms by which the body would compensate for a falling blood pressure.
Describe several procedures that might have helped save the couple if they had been found unconscious with their heads still above water and alive.
