Questions:
1) A model is a simplified representation of looking at something that is complex. In science, we use models all of the time. It could be a plastic model of the brain or a virtual model that you can click on to see how the brain works in a simulation.
The nervous system is often compared to a computer or a circuit as models. For both, there is an input and output. Consider how the brain works, how signals travel along the axon, a reflex arc, or even how neurons ‘fire’ or don’t. If you had to explain some aspect of the nervous system using a game, how would you do it?
Go to http://jayisgames.com/ and search for a free game that you could use as a model to explain some aspect of the nervous system. Pick a free game and tie it into some aspect of your understanding of how some part of or the entire nervous system works. Nervous System Mechanism Discussion
2) For this question, you may select a game related to vision or hearing. How can you relate this game to some aspect of light passing through the eye or the conduction of sound through the ear?
Once a student has used a game for their explanation, it cannot be repeated by another student as an initial post for points.
3) Games are not the only models available for the nervous system. Many publishers and instructors develop their own animations and simulations. An animation or simulation has some aspect of the program that requires the user (that would be you) make a decision. You interact with the example rather than just scrolling through a web page reading about it.
For instance, go to http://www.wisc-online.com/objects/ViewObject.aspx… to learn more about the twelve cranial nerves or http://www.wisc-online.com/objects/ViewObject.aspx… to learn more about how you hear.
How does any one of these animations add to your understanding of the nervous system? You need to review one of the animations and explain it in your own words on how it contributes to your understanding of one of the topics of the nervous system. Feel free to use one of these animations, but once a website is used, it cannot be duplicated as an initial post for points. Nervous System Mechanism Discussion

Policymaking and Technology
Choose one (1) of the following discussion prompts;
Prompt 1:
Healthcare systems are huge, complex, and constantly changing as they respond to economic, technological, social, and historical factors. The availability of technology has a profound effect on the health care costs and the availability of medical care. Local, state and national policy makers have an impact on these systems. Explain what you would do to encourage and increase technological advances and availability and try to decrease costs for all the stakeholders involved.
Support your responses with academic resources.
Prompt 2:
We have learned that new technology is the number one reason for escalating health care costs in America. Do you think that quality would be adversely impacted if the growth in medical technology were to be constrained in the United States for one year? If these costs could be reduced, and more people could gain access, do you think that this would be a reasonable trade-off? Would you pay a higher premium to ensure that you would always have access to the most recent diagnostic and curative technology?
Support your responses with academic resources.
*Please note: You will not be able to see other classmate’s posts until you post your initial response. You must start a thread before you can read and reply to other threads.

Project Description
You work for a business information firm that provides clients with summaries of publicly available information on a range of businesses. Your boss comes to you and says that an increasing number of clients have been asking that the firm develop a catalog of company profiles on businesses that have something to do with the oil and gas industry. The clients want this catalog so that they can quickly identify which companies they may want to carry out additional research on, and possibly have your firm do that research. You’ll need to write company profiles that provide an objective, fact-based summary of:

  1. What the company does;
  2. How it has performed; and
  3. What challenges and/or successes the company has had over the past 3–5 years.

You are to write a profile of either a company that is focused on one activity in the oil and gas industry (e.g., a small exploration and production company, or a small service company whose primary business is drilling wells) or one business unit within a larger company involved in multiple industry activities (e.g., the refining unit of an integrated oil and gas company, or the seismic survey unit of a large, multi-purpose service company).
Preparing the Company/Business Unit Profile
Select a company or a business unit within a company of interest to you that is involved in the oil and gas industry or in providing one or more services to the industry. There are a variety of places to look up candidate companies, one of which is Google Finance (e.g., Google Finance ->Energy->Oil & Gas http://www.google.com/finance?catid=us-TRBC:501020&ei=8x54VvG5Jo2bjAGbnJOoCw and Google Finance ->Energy->Oil & Gas Related Equipment and Services http://www.google.com/finance?catid=us-TRBC:501030&ei=8x54VvG5Jo2bjAGbnJOoCw
Next, track down publicly available information on the company/business unit using as complete and even a mix of the following resources as possible:

  • Company web sites.
  • Company annual reports.
  • Company announcements.
  • Market based reports.
  • Financial websites (e.g., Yahoo and Google Finance).
  • News articles (from newspapers, news magazines, trade journals, etc.).
  • Government websites and reports (e.g., www.eia.gov).
  • Blogs.

The profile should be at least 500 words, but no more than 750 words in length. You should cite the materials you read when writing your company profile and provide a bibliography at the end of your work. For more information about citation, please refer to the Purdue University writing guide. The style of citation is not important. Finally, your report must address the following questions:
Goal 1: What the Company Does

  • What company/business unit are you evaluating?
  • What is the focus of the company/business unit?
  • What sector of the oil and gas industry does the company’s/business unit’s focus fall under?
  • Is the company or parent company of the business unit public, private, or government controlled? Explain your basis for categorizing the company as such.
  • Which of the following is the company more dependent on demand for, if any: crude oil, raw natural gas, processed natural gas, and/or refined petroleum products?

NURS 6501 Week 6 Assignment

Application: Asthma

Complications of asthma can be sudden. Consider the case of Bradley Wilson, a young boy who had several medical conditions. He appeared in good health when he went to school, returned home, and ate dinner. However, when he later went outside to play, he came back inside wheezing. An ambulance took him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead (Briscoe, 2012). In another case, 10-year-old Dynasty Reese, who had mild asthma, woke up in the middle of the night and ran to her grandfather’s bedroom to tell him she couldn’t breathe. By the time paramedics arrived, she had passed out and was pronounced dead at the hospital (Glissman, 2012). These situations continue to outline the importance of recognizing symptoms of asthma and providing immediate treatment, as well as distinguishing minor symptoms from serious, life-threatening symptoms. Since these symptoms and attacks are often induced by a trigger, as an advanced practice nurse, you must be able to help patients identify their triggers and recommend appropriate treatment options. For this reason, you need to understand the pathophysiological mechanisms of chronic asthma and acute asthma exacerbation.

To prepare:

·        Review “Asthma” in Chapter 26 of the Huether and McCance text. Identify the pathophysiological mechanisms of chronic asthma and acute asthma exacerbation. Consider how these disorders are similar and different.

·        Select a patient factor different from the one you selected in this week’s Discussion: genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, or behavior. Think about how the factor you selected might impact the pathophysiology of both disorders. Reflect on how you would diagnose and prescribe treatment of these disorders for a patient based on the factor you selected.

·        Review the “Mind maps—Dementia, Endocarditis, and Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)” media in the Week 2 Learning Resources. Use the examples in the media as a guide to construct two mind maps—one for chronic asthma and one for acute asthma exacerbation. Consider the epidemiology and clinical presentation of both chronic asthma and acute asthma exacerbation.

To complete:

Write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:

·        Describe the pathophysiological mechanisms of chronic asthma and acute asthma exacerbation. Be sure to explain the changes in the arterial blood gas patterns during an exacerbation.

·        Select a patient factor different from the one you selected in week 6 Discussion and Explain how the factor you selected might impact the pathophysiology of both disorders.

·        Describe how you would diagnose and prescribe treatment for a patient based on the factor you selected.

·        Construct two mind maps—one for chronic asthma and one for acute asthma exacerbation. Include the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation, as well as the diagnosis and treatment you explained in your paper.
