Your paper should include the underlined items below as section headings.
APA 7th edition Title page:
This is a separate page by itself, with the following information centered in the middle of the page: course title, paper title, student’s name, instructor’s name, and date.
Description of Pathology:
Start the paper on a new page.
In this section, you will describe the pathology (statistics about it, background information, etc.). Give as much information as you can about it but be sure it is relevant information and not just filler. It should be a comprehensive introductory section of the condition in one to two paragrahs.
Normal anatomy of the major body system affected: In this section, you will describe what is considered normal anatomy for your particular pathophysiology. For example, if you are discussing a disease related to the brain, explain what is normal for the brain from an anatomical standpoint. You should show comprehensive knowledge of the fundamental concepts and communicate information using scientific vocabulary. There should be little to no discussion of the condition itself in this section.
Normal physiology of the major body system affected: In this section, you will be discussing physiology. Keep in mind that when describing physiology, it isn’t enough to merely provide a list of functions of the body system (Ex: Neurons send signals throughout the body), instead, you need to be able to describe how it does it. The how is the physiology. There should be little to no discussion of the condition itself in this section
Mechanism of Pathophysiology: This section is likely going to be the most in-depth and longest section. In this section, you will explain your particular pathophysiology from a scientific standpoint. In the previous two sections, you explained what is considered normal, in this section, you should describe what the pathophysiology is doing that is causing these issues, how the normal anatomy & physiology is affected/different in a person with your condition. You should show a thorough understanding of the anatomical and physiological changes contributing to the disease. Some good keywords to search for when doing your research might be “Pathology of __________”, Pathophysiology of __________.”
Prevention: In this section, you will explain how your pathophysiology could be prevented. This should outline possible prevention protocols, or clearly indicate if none is available based on the current scientific literature.
Treatment: In this section, you will explain how your pathophysiology is commonly treated. Provide possible treatment protocols for the condition based on current scientific literature. Be sure to bring in nursing relevant information and how you might be involved in the treatment of the condition.
Conclusion: Finally you should summarize your findings. All good research papers should include a conclusion where you wrap up and summarize all of the important points made in your paper.
As with the Title page, this should be a separate page by itself.
All references should be included in correct and complete APA format.
All references must be cited appropriately in the paper using APA-style in-text citations.
A minimum of three reputable sources are required for this assignment.
Requirements for Length & Submission
The length requirement for this paper is between 4-6 full pages of content, double-spaced – this does not include the Title page and the Reference page (both on separate pages) that do not contribute to page count. Use of images/tables/diagrams will not count for total page number either.
Students will be assigned individual topics related to physiology and pathological conditions of physiological systems by their instructor. You must write your paper based on your assigned topic.
Your paper must be submitted as a PDF (.pdf) or Word document (.doc or .docx). These are the only file types that will be accepted.

Welcome back to the final Cyber-Samantha Mystery Discussion! You are required to post each week and you can apply what you have learned to this discussion. Have fun and let’s get started!
Review the module resources.
Review the rubric criteria for posting.
Review the original Cyber-Samantha Clues.
Given the new information, answer the following questions in the discussion in complete sentences.Provide a description of myositis.
Present a new or modified hypothesis regarding Samantha’s death.
Note: You may need to revise your answers to the questions each week as new information is presented
Case Study: The Cyber-Samantha Mystery
By Dr. Bruce Forciea
New CluesFrom records obtained by detective Jones from Samantha’s primary medical doctor.
In addition to suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis, it was discovered that Samantha recently visited her primary doctor for leg pain. Dr. Simon entered the diagnosis of myositis of the left quadriceps muscles secondary to Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Describe the Normal digestion of lactose (including its subunits), and what is different about the digestive system of lactose intolerant individuals. Include how this difference results in the symptoms associated with lactose intolerance.
On Part 1..the topic I picked was “Disaccharides” it has to be a minimum of 150 words
Part 2..you tube video and it is called “water-liquid awesome: crash course biology #2 and it has to be a minimum of 150 word
Part 3..you have to just answer questions and I will send the one page.
I will send the instructions also and APA format
Go to Science Daily (https://www.sciencedaily.com/) and select a news article involving the integumentary system. This can include any research that somehow incorporates skin, nails, sweat or oil glands, hair, etc. Once you’ve chosen a news story, summarize the main ideas from the article. Then, draft two questions that a scientist might ask about the topic. Include both the summary and the two questions in your initial post. Make sure to include the news story title and a link to it in your post.
When responding to your peers, discuss how their questions relate to the medical research field and what we are learning this week in class. Share how you could clarify your post based on what you learned from reading theirs.
Mr D is a 60 yr old with fever, abdominal pain, decreased appetite, and nausea for the past 24 hrs. There are no new foods in his diet and he has not been travelling or eating out. He had a screening colonoscopy 5 years ago that showed diverticula in his colon but he never had any problem with them.
Physical: Mr. D appears tired and in pain. Exam is significant for abdominal tenderness to touch.
White blood count is elevated on CBC
Amylase, lipase and liver function tests are normal
Abdominal CT scan shows diverticulitis
Diverticulitis- this occurs when diverticula (thin areas in the wall of the intestine that form “outpocketing”) become inflamed. Risk factors include a low fiber diet and constipation. Treatment for diverticulitis includes avoiding solid foods, hydration, and antibiotics.
Answer the following questions and save your responses in a Microsoft Word document. Provide a scholarly resource in APA format to support your answers.
1.Provide a detailed description of the path of chyme, and later feces, from the duodenum to the anus, identifying the different portions of the small and large intestines.
2.Describe 2 important functions of the small intestine.
3.Describe 2 important functions of the large intestine
4.Diverticulitis most often affects the sigmoid colon. Based on your knowledge of its location in the abdomen in which of the following quadrants do you predict the location of pain to be?
5.If diverticulitis worsens it can lead to life-threatening peritonitis. Describe 2 functions of the peritoneum.
