Assignment 1: Discussion Question
By Saturday, October 24, 2015 , write an Initial Post with a description of 2 patients, one with a dermatological problem and one with a cardiovascular problem. You do not need a complete assessment of each patient, just a reference to the pertinent Body System. Your post needs to be at least 250 words, and requires full references in APA format for any resource you use.
Your first patient has a cardiovascular problem. Use the cardiovascular medical word elements chart from your textbook to develop at least 10 medical terms that would be appropriate for use in evaluating a cardiovascular complaint. Make sure you list at least 3 tests and 3 procedures having to do with your patient’s condition.
Your second patient presents a problem of the skin. This time, use the integumentary medical word elements chart from your text to help you come up with at least 10 terms that relate to your patient’s disorder. Describe 3 tests and 3 procedures that might be helpful to gather information.
Your response should be posted to the Discussion Area below. By the end of the week, begin commenting on at least 2 of your peers’ responses. Ask questions, further the discussion of the topic, reinforce a response, or add another dimension to the discussion. Always use constructive language.
