Discussion Basic Concept: Infarction

  • CO 1: Correlate lifestyle, environmental, and other influences with changes in levels of wellness. (POs 1 and 7)
  • CO 2: Explain the pathophysiologic processes of select health conditions. (PO 1)
  • CO 3: Predict clinical manifestations and complications for select disease processes. (POs 1 and 8)

Due date: Your faculty member will inform you when this assignment is due. The Late Assignment Policy applies to this assignment.

Total points possible: 50 points

Preparing the assignment Select a pathophysiology concept that you have not previously completed an active learning template for. Some examples include but are not limited to: pathophysiology, etiology, iatrogenic, exogenous, prevention, mortality, morbidity, manifestations, symptoms, communicable diseases, apoptosis, hyperplasia, ischemia, impaired gas exchange, impaired mobility, or impaired perfusion.

  • Complete the three areas of the template describing in detail this concept.
  • Select a disease process from the current organ system you are studying, that you have not previously completed an active learning template for. Some examples include but are not limited to: pneumonia, heart failure, hyperthyroidism, colon cancer, renal failure, arthritis.
  • Complete the top three boxes, the Assessment and Safety Concerns area of the form. Be prepared to submit, present and/or teach this concept to others based on your faculty member’s instructions. In addition, complete as much of the
  • Patient Centered Care area as you are able based on your own research and/or collaboration with your peers or faculty.
  • Create a 1 page analysis describing how the selected concept relates to the selected systems disorder. Be prepared to present and/or submit your paper.

The following is an example to help clarify the assignment guidelines: After completing the two templates below, the analysis paper might include a discussion of how immobility will affect the particular selected disorder (in this case fracture). 

The analysis might include how immobility will increase complications if the patient is unable to walk, or if the patient does not have access to a walker. It may also include the possibility the patient will be immobile in a bed right after surgical repair, and how this may affect the outcome of the patient. Furthermore, highlights on how a specific patient age could affect immobility (i.e. elderly are more likely to fracture hips). Reviewing how immobility may affect other types of fractures could be included.
