WHAT HAPPENED IN THE HOSPITAL TRIAGE ACTIVITY? WHO WAS TO BE TREATED FIRST?
We assessed 7 patients vital signs to determine which patient was most critical and had to be treated first. Monique was to be treated first because she had the most critical vital signs out of all the patients.
WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LIVER LAB WHEN YOU ADDED ACID TO WATER AND LIVER?
Acid + Water= very low drop in ph to become a very strong acid (no buffers) Acid + Liver = hardly any movement in ph due to the presence of buffers which control the proper ph in cells.
WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LIVER LAB WHEN YOU ADDED BASE TO WATER AND LIVER?
Base + Water = very high rise in ph to make a stronger base due to the lack of buffers. Base + Liver = hardly and rise in ph due to the presence of buffers which maintain the proper ph in cells.
WHY DID THE PH CHANGE MORE IN THE WATER THAN IT DID IN THE LIVER?
The water is inorganic or non-living therefore it did not contain buffers to help regulate the ph.
IN DIAGNOSIS: A PUZZLE, HOW DID YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT YOUR PATIENT WAS EXPOSED TO?
I used their symptoms and past history to help me determine if it was a bacterial infection or a viral infection. Ex: did they have a Rubella vaccine, how long were they sick, did they take an antibiotic.
HOW ARE TREATMENTS FOR VIRUSES AND BACTERIA DIFFERENT?
Antibiotics only treat bacterial infections!!!!!
WHY DID YOUR HEART BEAT FASTER IN THE HEART RATE LAB?
My heart beat faster because my exercise level increased, and as my exercise level increased my heart needed to get blood and oxygen around my body faster so my heart needs to beat faster to maintain homeostasis around my body.
