This week, we discussed skin and respiratory system disorders. Select a topic from your readings, outcomes, objectives, concepts and sub-concepts (below) and present a question that applies to a concept or a disease process, wellness or illness. Submit your question in the following formats: audio, text or webcam. Once your comment has been posted, submit responses to your peers’ questions and comments. Consider the outcomes, objectives and concepts below when formulating your initial question.
Your question and response should explain, illustrate, justify, trace, discuss, compare, contrast, agree or disagree, interpret, evaluate, and summarize.
Weekly Outcomes & Weekly Objectives
Articulate alterations in structure and function of the respiratory and integumentary systems. (CO 1)
Trace the impact that alterations in the respiratory and integumentary systems have on the body. (CO 2)
Summarize the impact of alterations in the respiratory and integumentary systems on homeostasis. (CO 3)
Understand normal respiratory and integumentary system disorders.
Compare and contrast common respiratory and integumentary disorders: causes, clinical manifestations, diagnostic tests, and treatments.
Apply understanding of alterations in respiratory and integumentary systems across the lifespan to formulate care priorities.
Examine responses to aging and its impact on pathophysiologic changes in the respiratory and integumentary systems.
Describe how heredity and genetics influence pathophysiological alterations in the cardiovascular and integumentary systems.
Examine factors leading to cancers of the respiratory and integumentary systems.
