The resources in this learning block are examples of artifacts that have helped create new attitudes toward women and the LGBT community while at the same time being influenced by societys changing views. Use these examples and the information presented in the overview to complete the first table on this weeks worksheet:
In the first column, provide an example of a contemporary artifact that either helps create change in the way women or LGBT people are perceived, or has been influenced by societys changing views of women and LGBT members. In the second column, state in two to three sentences the reason you selected this artifact.
An example of an artifact that may have changed the perception of women is the novel The Hunger Games and its film adaptation, featuring the strong lead female character Katniss. An example of an artifact that may help shape societys views of LGBT individuals is the TV show Modern Family, featuring Mitch and Cam.
Once your work is complete, save the file to your computer. You will complete the second table later this week. You will submit your worksheet at the end of this week.

Case Scenario

The case scenario provided will be used to answer the discussion questions that follow.

Case Scenario

Mr. C., a 32-year-old single man, is seeking information at the outpatient center regarding possible bariatric surgery for his obesity. He reports that he has always been heavy, even as a small child, but he has gained about 100 pounds in the last 2–3 years. Previous medical evaluations have not indicated any metabolic diseases, but he says he has sleep apnea and high blood pressure, which he tries to control with sodium restriction. He current works at a catalog telephone center.

Objective Data

  1. Height: 68 inches;

  1. Weight 134.5 kg

  1. BP: 172/96,

  1. HR 88, RR 26

  1. Fasting Blood Glucose: 146/mg/dL

  1. Total Cholesterol: 250mg/dLTriglycerides: 312 mg/dLHDL: 30 mg/dL

Critical Thinking Questions

What health risks associated with obesity does Mr. C. have? Is bariatric surgery an appropriate intervention? Why or why not?

Mr. C. has been diagnosed with peptic ulcer disease and the following medications have been ordered:

  1. Magnesium hydroxide/aluminum hydroxide (Mylanta) 15 mL PO 1 hour before bedtime and 3 hours after mealtime and at bedtime.

  1. Ranitidine (Zantac) 300 mg PO at bedtime.

  1. Sucralfate/Carafate 1 g or 10ml suspension (500mg / 5mL) 1 hour before meals and at bedtime.

The patient reports eating meals at 7 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m., and a bedtime snack at 10 p.m. Plan an administration schedule that will be most therapeutic and acceptable to the patient.

  1. Assess each of Mr. C.’s functional health patterns using the information given. (Hint: Functional health patterns include health-perception – health management, nutritional – metabolic, elimination, activity-exercise, sleep-rest, cognitive-perceptual, self-perception – self-concept, role-relationship, sexuality – reproductive, coping – stress tolerance.)What actual or potential problems can you identify? Describe at least five problems and provide the rationale for each.

Project Deliverable 5: Describe Infrastructure and Security

This assignment consists of two (2) sections: an infrastructure document and a revised Gantt chart or project plan. You must submit both sections as separate files for the completion of this assignment. Label each file name according to the section of the assignment it is written for. Additionally, you may create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment. The infrastructure which encompasses the network solution and security considerations is a major consideration for your company. Considering that the company will be expanding from one (1) floor to three (3) floors in the very near future you, as the CIO, are responsible for the design of the infrastructure and security protocols. You have been tasked with designing a network that is stable, redundant, and scalable. In addition, speed and reliability are important considerations. Assumptions should be drawn regarding network usage in relationship to network services and resources. All the established criteria that were set at the onset should be adhered to within your plan. The network solution that is chosen should support the conceived information system and allow for scalability. The network infrastructure will support organizational operations; therefore, a pictorial view of workstations, servers, routers, bridges, gateways, and access points should be used. In addition, access paths for Internet access should be depicted. Additionally, the security of the network should be in the forefront of your design because protecting your data is a primary consideration.

POST 1


A 17-year-old African American female from the inner city complains of severe chest and abdominal pain. Upon examination, the attending physician performs an EKG, chest x-ray, and an abdominal and chest clinical examination and finds nothing. Assuming she is drug seeking, he sends her home. She comes back to the ER 4 hours later and now you see the patient. She explains that she was running track this past afternoon at school and that despite being very hot (100 F) she pushed on. Afterwards, she starts feeling extensive pain in her chest and abdomen. She has jaundiced eyes, her blood pressure is 98/50, pulse is 112, Temperature = 99.9 F, Respirations = 28. The pain seems out of proportion to the physical findings. During a review of her medical history, she tells the provider that she has history of sickle cell anemia. At this time, it is determined that she is in a sickle cell crisis.

1. What is the etiology of sickle cell anemia?

2. Describe in detail the pathophysiological process of sickle cell anemia.

3. Identify hallmark signs identified from the physical exam and symptoms.

4. Describe the pathophysiology of complications of sickle cell anemia.

5. What teaching related to her diagnosis would you provide?



POST 2


Jesse is a 57-year-old male who presents with gradual onset of dyspnea on exertion and fatigue. He also complains of frequent dyspepsia with nausea and occasional epigastric pain. He states that at night he has trouble breathing especially while lying on his back. This is relieved by him sitting up. His vitals are 180/110, Pulse = 88, Temperature = 98.0 F, Respirations = 20. After a thorough work-up, he is diagnosed with congestive heart failure.

1. What is the etiology of congestive heart failure?

2. Describe in detail the pathophysiological process of congestive heart failure.

3. Identify hallmark signs identified from the physical exam, diagnostic lab work and symptoms.

4. Describe the pathophysiology of complications of congestive heart failure

5. What teaching would you provide this patient to avoid heart failure symptoms?
