Create a book that shows how a Myocardial Infarction (MI) happens. Include all possible signs and symptoms, an explanation of why the signs and symptoms are present (What causes them), and the appropriate treatment/therapy performed by an EMT. Include why it is necessary to treat an MI immediately. Include an illustration showing blockage and damage. To receive full points include an illustration of an EKG and what to look for in the EKG to determine the presence of an MI.
Required Academic Terms that should be found in your booklet:
Myocardial Infarction (MI)
Heart Failure/Cardiogenic Shock
Coronary Artery Disease (atherosclerosis)
Occlusion or Occluded
ST Segment Elevation
Understanding Tension Pneumothorax
Create a book that shows the mechanism (Step by Step with pictures) and effects of a tension pneumothorax.
Be sure to use the “Academic Terms” in your book. Be sure to include the signs and symptoms typically present in a pneumothorax. Be sure to include the why and how of those signs and symptoms.
Please use color. Blood always looks better red.
Academic Terms to be used:
Open/Tension (external) pneumothorax
Sucking Chest Wound
Visceral and Parietal pleurae
*Signs and Symptoms and why/how on all of them.
Jugular Vein Distention
Knowing the meaning of the following word elements can help you earn a high score on the Cardiovascular worksheets 1, 2 & and 3 quiz. They will also help you with the final cardio test. To take advantage of this study guide you need to know the meaning of both the word as a whole and the meaning of the word parts – Prefix, Root and Suffix.
** Note: Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. If you enter the health care field it would greatly benefit you to know as much as possible about the cardiovascular system.
Occlusion, palpitation, infarction, pacemaker, hypertension, arteriorraphy, cardiotomy
The Initial Assessment is very important. It is when you interact with your patient for the first time. You have to keep him/her alive.
As you approach your patient you need to quickly determine if they have circulation, airway, and breathing (CAB)
4. You can say, “I need to get an impression of my patient. Is s/he mild, moderate, or severe.”
or you can say – “I need to determine if my patient is Big Sick or Little Sick.”
5. I need to find out his “chief complaint.” This is why s/he called an ambulance
6. I need to determine the “Responsiveness and Mental status of my patient. for responsiveness I use the AVPU acronym.
**** Do not make the mistake of saying Responsiveness and forgetting the AVPU. Also don’t forget Mental Status (this is the most common mistake).
Nephron Test Study Guide
The following are questions you should be able to answer when you take the nephron test on Friday. You may use your notes (one page) and your nephron model when you take the test. You cannot use your phone or your classmates notes. The blanks “___” indicate how many answers there are for that question.
AKA Renal System
Due Friday November 1st
The urinary system, also known as the renal system or urinary tract, consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and the urethra. The purpose of the urinary system is to eliminate waste from the body, regulate blood volume and blood pressure, control levels of electrolytes and metabolites, and regulate blood pH.
Today we will be focusing on the nephron. The nephron is the filter inside the kidney. There are about 1,000,000 nephrons in each of your two kidneys. We need to have an understanding of how the nephron helps maintains homeostasis and eliminates waste by making urine.
You need to use two pieces of each color yarn, a piece of paper, clear tape (a reasonable amount) and a pencil (to write with). Your model should show the anatomy of the nephron. Clearly label each. Be sure to include the following:
It is suggested that you use the following videos and resources to complete this assignment.
For a C grade on this assignment complete the above mentioned with purpose.
To receive a B or an A on this assignment complete this assignment with purpose and add the effects of osmosis on the filtrate in your nephron model. Good resource – use the blue book.
