The Pathophysiology Of Disorders 19303033


                 Assignment : The Pathophysiology of Disorders

During the last 5 weeks, you have explored various body  systems: neurological, cardiovascular, respiratory, and hematological.  These four systems work together along with other body systems to  complete a myriad of functions. For this reason, when disorders occur  within one body system, it can create potentially devastating effects  throughout the entire body. For instance, Parkinson’s disease is a  disorder of the central nervous system, yet its alterations actually  affect multiple body systems from the cardiovascular system to the  gastrointestinal system. In this Assignment, you examine alterations  associated with disorders, as well as the impact of the alterations on  multiple body systems.

                                            To Prepare

From the list below, select a disorder of interest to you:                   

Alzheimer’s disease

Asthma in children

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Congestive heart failure

Hepatic disease (liver disease)


Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism



Identify alterations associated with your selected  disorder. Consider the pathophysiology of the alterations. 

Think about  how these alterations produce pathophysiological changes in at least two  body systems.

Reflect on how patient factors such as genetics,  gender, ethnicity, age, and behavior might impact the pathophysiology of  the alterations you identified, as well as the diagnosis and treatment  of your selected disorder. 

Review the “Mind maps—Dementia, Endocarditis, and  Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)” media in the Week 2 Learning  Resources. Use the examples in the media as a guide to construct a mind  map for the disorder you selected. 

Consider the epidemiology and  clinical presentation of your selected disorder.

                                        To Complete

Develop a 5- to 10-slide PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following:

Describe your selected disorder, as well as  associated alterations. Explain the pathophysiology of the alterations,  including changes that occur in at least two body systems.

Explain how genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, and  behavior might impact the pathophysiology of the alterations you  identified, as well as diagnosis and treatment of your selected  disorder.

Construct a mind map for the disorder you selected.  Include the epidemiology, pathophysiology of alterations, risk factors,  and clinical presentation, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of the  disorder.
