Alterations in Cellular Processes

At its core, pathology is the study of disease. Diseases occur for many reasons. But some, such as cystic fibrosis and Parkinson’s Disease, occur because of alterations that prevent cells from functioning normally.

Understanding of signals and symptoms of alterations in cellular processes is a critical step in diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. For the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), this understanding can also help educate patients and guide them through their treatment plans.

For this Discussion paper , you examine a case study and explain the disease that is suggested. You examine the symptoms reported and explain the cells that are involved and potential alterations and impacts.

To prepare:

·         Post an explanation of the disease highlighted in the scenario you were provided. Include the following in your explanation:

·         The role genetics plays in the disease.

·         Why the patient is presenting with the specific symptoms described.

·         The physiologic response to the stimulus presented in the scenario and why you think this response occurred.

·         The cells that are involved in this process.

·         How another characteristic (e.g., gender, genetics) would change your response.

 

Group B (SCENARIO)

An 83-year-old resident of a skilled nursing facility presents to the emergency department with generalized edema of extremities and abdomen. History obtained from staff reveals the patient has history of malabsorption syndrome and difficulty eating due to lack of dentures. The patient has been diagnosed with protein malnutrition.

NB: Remember that this is Advanced phathophysiology dealing with cells and in your answer, you have to show which cells were altered causing the condition. The terminologies have too much cells, example instead of saying HTN say cells pumping blood through the high to high that it causes abnormality in functioning.

Sources has to be less than 5 days. Remember the evienced based means peer-reviewed evidence. For this paper is required at least 4-5 sources.

A 16-year-old boy comes to clinic with chief complaint of sore throat for 3 days. Denies fever or chills. PMH negative for recurrent colds, influenza, ear infections or pneumonias. NKDA or food allergies. Physical exam reveals temp of 99.6 F, pulse 78 and regular with respirations of 18. HEENT normal with exception of reddened posterior pharynx with white exudate on tonsils that are enlarged to 3+. Positive anterior and posterior cervical adenopathy. Rapid strep test performed in office was positive. His HCP wrote a prescription for amoxicillin 500 mg po q 12 hours x 10 days disp #20. He took the first capsule when he got home and immediately complained of swelling of his tongue and lips, difficulty breathing with audible wheezing. 911 was called and he was taken to the hospital, where he received emergency treatment for his allergic reaction.
