Applied Sciences homework help.
You are required to submit a Power Point presentation of a microbial disease.
The presentation should include a clinical component and a descriptive component.
Clinical: Describe a scenario in which a patient presents themselves with the signs and symptoms of the disease you have chosen, and then describe how you would diagnose the disease and treat it. That includes any tests you would perform on the patient, tests to identify the organism causing the disease, treatment, long term effects, if any. Diagnosing the disease may include information, not just medical tests. Show pictures of the effects of the disease (the pathology).
Descriptive: Describe the organism causing the disease, the mechanism by which it causes the disease (toxins, enzymes, cell destruction, etc.), and the virulence factors that promote the pathogenicity of the organism, unique genetic characteristics.
Make sure you can define anything you include in the presentation. If you list a diagnostic test, know what it tests for and how it works.
Here is a list of topics each being a section heading:
- Clinical manifestation (signs and symptoms)
- Initial diagnosis (what the signs, symptoms, history, etc suggest)
- Diagnostic tests
- Final diagnosis of the disease (based on laboratory results)
- Etiology (what organism is causing the disease)
- Describe the organism, how it causes the disease, virulence factors
Please title each slide with the topics listed above.
Some of the websites that you can research your topic are:
American Society of Microbiology: https://www.asm.org/ NCBI Pubmed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: http://www. cdc.gov Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.com
World health organization: http://www. who.int
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: http://www3.niaid.nih.gov
Search for your disease plus “clinical case” or “pathophysiology” or “epidemiology” etc
References: You may use any convention you choose as long they are consistent and include the authors, year, name of article or paper, source (journal, website, etc) and page numbers or URL.
If you are not familiar with citing references, speak to me.
