Description
W4:
.- Question #1: (one full page) Describe the physiology of blood pressure control. Causes of Primary Hypertension may include overactivity of the SNS; overactivity of the RAAS; alterations in other neurohumoral mediators of blood volume and vasomotor tone such as ANP, BNP, and adrenomedullin; inflammation; a complex interaction involving insulin resistance and endothelial function; and obesity-related hormonal changes.
a) Select 3 of the above potential causes and explain the pathophysiologic mechanisms of primary hypertension.
.- Question #2: (one full page) Identify one of the main organ damage that can occur as a result of Hypertension. Describe the pathophysiologic process of the organ damage.
.- Question #3: (one full page) Orthostatic hypotension can occur as an adverse effect of medications used to manage hypertension. Based on question #1 describe the pathophysiologic process that causes orthostatic hypotension.
W5: .- Question #1: (one full page) Both bronchiolitis and bronchiectasis present with a cough and dyspnea. Describe the pathophysiologic process of both bronchiolitis and bronchiectasis. Compare and contrast the two processes.
.- Question #2: (one full page) Comment how Both bronchiolitis and bronchiectasis can be present as a complication of COVID-19 virus.
.- Question #3: (one full page) Provide a clinical example of bronchiolitis and bronchiectasis.
W6:
You are seeing a patient with fatigue, pallor, dyspnea on exertion, and palpitations. The patient is 50 years old. Laboratory report indicates a low hematocrit 32, hemoglobin 9.7 and reticulocyte count low at .47% MCV of 78 and MCHC of 32.1.
.- Question #1: (one full page) Describe the pathophysiologic process of Anemia.
Identify two differential diagnoses and provide the pathophysiology of these two differential diagnoses.
.- Question #2: (one full page) Identify the additional workup that is needed to rule in or rule out these differential diagnoses. What clinical signs/symptoms would you expect to see with these two differential diagnoses?
.- Question #3: (one full page) Post the diagnosis you believe to be correct for this patient.
W8: .
.- Question #1: (one full page) : Explain what happens physiologically with chronic renal failure and the GFR. Support with evidence. Include important labs that are monitored in the process.
.- Question #2: (one full page) : Explain the role of Angiotensin II and proteinuria as they relate to advancing renal disease.
.- Question #3: (one full page): List at least three other body systems that are impacted by chronic kidney disease and why.
W9:
.- Question #1: (one full page) : Describe the pathophysiology of depression.
.- Question #2: (one full page) : Discuss the phenomenon of depression effects on appetite. Describe from a pathophysiologic basis why some people with depression experience a lack of appetite resulting in weight loss while others will experience increased food intake and have weight gain.
.- Question #3: (one full page) : Discuss two additional clinical findings of depression and present the pathophysiologic basis of these symptoms.
W10: .- Question #1: (one full page) : Explain the action of thyroid hormone. Your answer should contain the impact of the thyroid hormone on functions in the body.
