CHALLENGE 4

SUMMARY OF CHALLENGE:

NAME OF CHALLENGE:Challenge 4: RX
DATE:6/2/11
WRITTEN BY:Bret
SUMMARY:We had no problems doing this challenge. Every 2 people had a patient. We each got a patient with a problem we had to find out what it was, and then we had to fill out a medical chart for each patient.

MEDICAL CHART

PATIENT'S NAME:Justin Time
SYMPTOMS:The patient’s spine had a curve and the patient couldn’t stand up straight.
DIAGNOSIS:Scoliosis. Scoliosis is a curving of the spine.
TREATMENT: The way scoliosis can be treated depends on the amount of curve. If the curve is 10-15 degrees, then all you have to do is have regular check ups with your doctor. If the curve is 20-40 degrees, you’ll have to wear a back brace. The back brace won’t make it better but it’ll prevent the curve from getting worse. Even though this is rare, if the curve is 40-50 degrees, you might need surgery. The surgeon will fuse pieces of bone to the vertebrae so that they stack up straight. Then they place a metal rod through your spine to hold the vertebrae in place.
PROGNOSIS: Depending on the degree of the curvature the patient should wear a back brace so that it won’t get worse. If this works, he can do everything a normal kid can. It’ll be fine.

MEDICAL CHART: (PATIENT 2)

PATIENT'S NAME: Rita Booke
SYMPTOMS: A butterfly-shaped rash across the bridge of the nose. Also stiffness in the joints.
DIAGNOSIS: (WHAT IS THE HEALTH ISSUE? DESCRIBE WHAT THE ILLNESS IS) Lupus is
TREATMENT: (WHAT SHOULD THE PATIENT DO? The patient should PROGNOSIS: (WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK FOR THIS PATIENT? WILL HE/SHE GET BETTER? WHAT'S YOUR ADVICE AS A DOCTOR?)

SUMMARY: The team had to do separate assignments for this Challenge. Two people each had to type 5 facts or more about the bone and muscle. One person had to type the vocabulary words of our body system. Then the last person had to answer the Critical Thinking question. Next, we had to paste the information onto the designated sections.

VOCABULARY WORDS:
Bones-The hard objects that make up the skeleton.
Cardiac muscle-Muscle that makes up the heart.
Cartilage-Smooth tissue at the end of bones.
Involuntary muscle-Muscles that you cannot control by thinking.
Ligament-Strong tissue that connects the bones.
Muscle-Body tissue that can pull.
Muscle system-The entire group of muscles in the body. It allows movement.
Skeletal muscle-Muscle attached to the bones that move the body.
Skeletal system-The entire collection of bones and tissue that hold them together in the body.
Smooth muscle-kind of muscle found in many internal organs.
Tendon-A band of tough tissue that connects muscle to bone.
Voluntary muscle-muscle that you can control by thinking.

A human skeleton has about 206 bonesThe skeleton gives the body It’s shapeThe skeleton protects organsBones are joined to other bones by jointsThe skeleton works with the muscles to make your body move Bones protect the heart,lungs and other important body parts
The places where bones meet are called joints
At most joints, bones are held together are called ligaments
The outside of bones are very hard and strong
Most of the weight and strength of bones come from minerals such as calcium

· The human body has more than 600 muscles.
· There are two main kinds of muscles, the skeletal and smooth muscles.
· The third kind of muscle is the cardiac muscle that is only located in the heart.
· Skeletal muscles give the body its shape.
· They help the bones move together, and they also make up a large part of the legs, arms, stomach, neck, chest, and face.
· Smooth muscles are found in important parts of the body called organs, such as the stomach and the intestines.
· Smooth muscles in the walls of the stomach and the intestines move food through the body.
· Cardiac muscles make up the walls of the heart and pushes blood out of the heart and throughout the body.

CRITICAL THINKING QUESTION:


QUESTION: You have about 600 muscles in your body that work together to help you move. You have three types of muscles in your body. The skeletal muscles are voluntary and move your body parts. The smooth and cardiac muscles are involuntary and so they move automatically. What are three examples of smooth muscles? Where are cardiac muscles found? What type of muscles controls your bladder? What foods should you eat to have healthy, strong muscles?

YOUR ANSWER: Smooth muscles is muscle found in many internal organs such as , intestines, Nucleus and the stomach. Cardiac musceles are found in the heart. Smooth muscles control the bladder .To have stong healthy muscles eat dairy, fruit and vegetables.
