CHALLENGE 4

SUMMARY OF CHALLENGE:

NAME OF CHALLENGE: RX
DATE: June 3, 2011
WRITTEN BY: Dr. Jasmine
SUMMARY:
In this challenge we had to diagnose a patient. We had to research different diseases based on our body system. We listened to his sypmtoms
and then tried to figure out what he had and how to stop it. The Leader did a reflection and we had to fill out a chart based on our research.

MEDICAL CHART:

PATIENT'S NAME: Pete Sahut
SYMPTOMS:
  • headaches
  • occasional dizziness
DIAGNOSIS: (WHAT IS THE HEALTH ISSUE? DESCRIBE WHAT THE ILLNESS IS)
We think that Pete Sahut has high blood pressure which is also called hypertension. Blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts against the blood vessel walls
as the heart pumps. The pressure increases when the heart contracts and pushes blood into the vessels and lowers when the heart relaxes,but there's always a certain
amount of pressure in the arteries.

TREATMENT: (WHAT SHOULD THE PATIENT DO?)
High-Blood Pressure can be treated by eating less salt, and by putting a stop to smoking. Pete can also try to lose a little weight.
PROGNOSIS: (WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK FOR THIS PATIENT? WILL HE/SHE GET BETTER? WHAT'S YOUR ADVICE AS A DOCTOR?)
The outlook for Pete is that he has High-Blood Pressure. His blood pressure is 160/90. The advice we suggest to him is that he eats less pizzas and calzones
(which have a lot of salt in them) while he does his job at the Italian restaurant. We also suggest that he stops smoking.

LEADER REFLECTION:

1. In this challenge, we had to diagnose a patient named Pete Sahut. We had to reasearch
many diseases that matched his symptoms in order to find the correct one.
Then we had to give him some advice towards his medical problem which was high
blood pressure.
2. How we worked together to research many dieases in many details to find the right one which high blood pressure.
This helped us figure out how to diagnose our patient better.
3. There was negotiation throughout the whole group but it was for a good cause. When we negotiatiated, it helped a lot. Everyone had there own point of view but we all got
through it.
4.Our research helped my team diagnose our patient because we found out what High-Blood Pressure was, and what caused it. Then we could tell Pete what to avoid to
help himself reduce his High-Blood Pressure.
5.My favorite part of the project was that we all worked together in a group and got it done in time. This is a great project because you got to research with friends without
even knowing it. The part that could be improved for next year's fifth grade is that we could use a flip camera video to tape what we researched instead of typing it because
the typing took us more time. It was also a lot harder to copy and paste things into the wiki from the Word Documents or from the citations on websites since everything
didn't turn out right (allignment, spaces, sizes).

The last part went to the team leader who answered the critical thinking question and also made sure that everybody copied and pasted their answers onto their wiki.

CHALLENGE 3 --EXPLORE MORE: HEART
YOUR TRIBE: The Pumped Bunch
YOUR NAME:Dr. Jenna

· LIST AT LEAST FIVE IMPORTANT FACTS YOU LEARNED ABOUT THE HEART BELOW. USE BULLET POINTS.

I learned that:

· Your heart lies near the center of your chest , between the lungs.
· Seven months before you are born, your heart starts to pump.
· The heart is really two pumps side by side. Tiny tubes known as veins carry the blood from the body to the right side of the heart. That side pumps the blood to the lungs which gives the blood oxygen.
· An adult’s heart and a kid’s heart is as big as an ordinary fist.
· Your heart beats more slowly when you sleep because your blood needs less oxygen when you sleep.
· Your heart beats much faster when you jump rope or ride a bike.
· When you need to fight off danger or run away from it, your heart speeds up by ten times. Your body needs more oxygen at these times.



CHALLENGE 3 --EXPLORE MORE: CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM
YOUR TRIBE:The Pumped Bunch
YOUR NAME:Dr.Patty

LIST AT LEAST FIVE IMPORTANT FACTS YOU LEARNED ABOUT THE CARDIOVASCULAR BELOW. USE BULLET POINTS.
  • Blood moving from the heart, delivers oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body
  • On the way back your, blood picks up waste products
  • Your fist is as big as your heart
  • Your heart is a muscle
  • The white blood cells fight disease

LIST AT LEAST 3 ‘DID YOU KNOW?’ FACTS ABOUT THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM BELOW. USE BULLET POINTS.

Did You Know That...

  • An adult’s heart pumps nearly 4,000 gallons of blood each day?!
  • Our heart beats 30 million times a year?!
  • The average three-year-old has two pints of blood in their body; the average adult at least five times more?
  • A "heartbeat" is really the sound of the valves in your heart closing as they push blood through their chambers?

CRITICAL THINKING QUESTION:

It is important to have white blood cells pumping in your blood because white blood cells fight off germs that enter your body. If you are injured, your platelets will clot your blood so that it stops flowing and hence, you will stop bleeding.

LEADER REFLECTION:

I thought that our group worked together well, but we had to make sure that we had time to check our work over so we didn't make any careless errors like spelling or grammer mistakes. Also, some peopIe went on their wiki space mail, and that got me kind of annoyed because they wouldn't listen, and they were just excited about typing messages to everyone. I don't think I did a good job on my question, but it was the best I could do in the amount of time that I had. Everyone kept asking me questions and I was really stressed. Even though I think that we could have done better as a group, I have some faith that we have a chance. We'll do better next time. THE PUMPED BUNCH!!! OH YEAH!!!

LEADER'S REFLECTION:

I thought that with our effort, we will always make it happen! Everyone in my tribe made amaizing badges! I thought they were really cool on how the green tied in with everything!
I thought that our team helped each other well, and that we all worked together well. I would have been a little more relaxed if we had more time, but I’m glad that we all finished. I observed that our team liked this challenge because I saw that they put in a lot of effort and pride in their ID badges. I think they're looking forward to the rest of the challenges, and that they are having fun.oh ya!!!!
