Endocrinology and how it affects wound healing.
Descriiption: Identify a neurology, integumentary, cardiovascular, oncology, endocrinology, or pulmonology topic and design a mini case study. The topic should be something specific enough to be able to cover the pathophysiology of the focus concisely. For example, instead of picking a person with hypertension and then trying to summarize all the pathophysiological features of that disease, it would be more appropriate to focus on an aspect or relationship between a risk factor and disease. Some CV examples would include – an adult with hypertension and obstructive sleep apnea (The focus of discussion would be the impact of OSA on the CVS), a person with secondary hypertension, a hypertensive emergency, a person with diastolic heart failure. Choose something that has recent research literature and that has adequate complexity. Criteria Possible Points Case should demonstrate the issue and include pertinent subjective and objective data. 10 points Discuss the pathophysiology of the topic area in detail AND using at LEAST 2 ORIGINAL research articles that are NO OLDER than 5 years, and ONE review article or appropriate website reference. The discussion should demonstrate synthesis of the information from the articles. Your text cannot be used as a source. Scholarly discussion of the physiology involved in the case issue that demonstrates synthesis of information. 40 points Provide a treatment strategy that addresses the pathophysiology of the problem and describe the physiologic basis for the treatment(s) you have chosen. You do NOT have to discuss ALL the different treatment options, choose your treatment plan, and support your plan with evidence. Concise summary of treatment plan SUPPORTED by evidence and linked to the pathophysiology of the issue. 40 points Inclusion of appropriate resources with appropriate citations using APA 7 th ed. Grammar, punctuation, and spelling will be closely evaluated in this project. 10 point
