CHALLENGE 4

SUMMARY OF CHALLENGE:

NAME OF CHALLENGE: Diagnose your Patient!
DATE: 6/2/11
WRITTEN BY: Dr.Irene
SUMMARY: For this challenge we had to find out what kind of disease our patient, Sarah Wrap, has. Sarah Wrap is a 56 year old woman who feels like her heart is always doing a flip flop or her heart is skipping beats. She even fainted once. Our patient usually lives a very active life. When she was doing target practice with Bristol her heart did a little flip flop, same thing happened when she went fly-fishing. For this challenge we had to work well as a team, and we had to work well independently too. Overall as a tribe we worked very well.
MEDICAL CHART:
PATIENT'S NAME:Sarah Wrap
SYMPTOMS:Heart flip flop,skipping beats,and pounding. She also has fainting episodes.
DIAGNOSIS: (WHAT IS THE HEALTH ISSUE,DISCRIBE WHAT THE ILNESS IS)Mitral Valve Prolapse
TREATMENT: (WHAT SHOULD THE PATIENT DO?)If a patient has MVP you probably will not need any treatment.In few cases you may take medicine to help pump blood to the body.
PROGNOSIS: (WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK FOR THIS PATIENT? WILL HE/SHE GET BETTER? WHAT'S YOUR ADVICE AS A DOCTOR?)Most patients with Mitral Valve Prolapse lead a regular life.She will do fine.


LEADER REFLECTION: (VIDEO TO BE INSERTED HERE)


1) In this challenge our tribe (the red bloods) had to figure out what was wrong with our patient and diagnose her so we can accomplish our task.

2) The part in this challenge that was successful was probably finding out what was wrong with our patient Sarah Wrap.

3) The part in this challenge that did not work as well was working with the symptom search. It was the hardest part because the symptoms she provided us with were not as helpful as we thought it would be. Also it made it hard because when we typed in the symptoms in the search they didn’t have any diseases that we researched about. So that is why it made it hard for us during this challenge.

4) Our research helped us diagnose our patient by our tribe mate (Ryan) who studied Mitral Valve Prolapse which was the disease Sarah Wrap had.

5) In my opinion and my group’s our favorite part was discussing what disease our patient might have. This project was great because I got to work with really fun and nice people and we enjoyed the project a lot. From discussing the disease and arguing to having fun with writing on the computer we hade a great time. I can’t really think of what could be improved for next year but one thing would be more symptoms and harder diseases.

CHALLENGE 3

SUMMARY OF CHALLENGE:

NAME OF CHALLENGE:Your Gross and Cool Body
DATE:4/14/11
WRITTEN BY:Dr. Kevin
SUMMARY:We had to list all the facts we learned about the Cardiovascular System with the use of World Book Science Power.


VOCABULARY WORDS:

Blood - Fluid that carries food and oxygen to cells of the body.
Blood vessle - hollow tubes that carry blood through the body.
Circulatory system - The group of organs that carry blood through the body.
Vein - Blood vessles that carry blood to the heart from the body.
Heart - A hollow muscular organ that pumps blood through the body. Red blood cells carry oxygen to body cells and remove wastes.

EXPLORE MORE ASSIGNMENTS:


LIST AT LEAST FIVE IMPORTANT FACTS YOU LEARNED ABOUT THE CARDIOVASCULAR BELOW. USE BULLET POINTS.
1)The cardiovascular system is made up of the heart, blood, and blood vessels.
2)Your heart squeezes and pumps blood through its chambers to all parts of the body.
3)The tubes that carry blood away from your heart are called arteries.
4) That oxygen-rich blood then travels back to the heart where it is pumped through arteries and capillaries to the whole body.
5)Most of your blood is a colorless liquid called plasma.

LIST AT LEAST 3 ‘DID YOU KNOW?’ FACTS ABOUT THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM BELOW. USE BULLET POINTS.
1)The body of an adult contains over 60,000 miles of blood vessels.
2)a”heartbeat” is actually the sound of valves in the heart closing as they push blood through its chambers.
3) An adult's heart pumps nearly 4000 gallons of blood each day.

The heart is a pump that powers the human body. With each beat the heart sends blood through our body. Tiny tubes called veins carry blood to the right sided pump. In the lungs the blood gets oxygen. That pump sends blood through big veins called arteries. Your heart pumps blood all throughout your body in one minute.

CHALLENGE 3 --CRITICAL THINKING QUESTION
YOUR TRIBE: Red Bloods
YOUR NAME/s: Dr. Irene

QUESTION: There are three types of blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen to blood cells and remove the waste gas called carbon dioxide from the body cells. White blood cells fight germs that enter the body. Platelets help the blood to clot and stop bleeding. When you get sick more infection. Why is it important to have white blood cells pumping in the blood? If you are injured, what parts of the blood help your blood to clot and thicken and to stop flowing.

YOUR ANSWER: It is important to have white blood cells because white blood cells fight germs and other things that invade the body and makes us sick. So if we get sick the white blood cells will help us get better. When you are injured platelets help stop bleeding. If a blood vessel is cut, platelets stick together to form a plug. So white blood cells help you get better and platelets will help you when you get cut.

LEADER'S REFLECTION:

My tribe had no difficulty in this task. We worked together in a group well because when one person could not finish as fast, the other person helped which made it quicker. It was good when we were creating Google docs but it wasn’t as great as I expected when we were creating badges. Nothing was difficult and we worked well as a group.
