Don’t forget to read and understand the rubric before you start.

urpose: The purpose of the project is to serve as an artifact, showing that students have demonstrated achieving the competency of scientific literacy.
This assignment specifically addresses the following Galen College of Nursing General Education Competencies: 2. Communication. 3. Information Literacy. 4. Critical Thinking. 5. Scientific Literacy.
You will need to work on this assignment weekly throughout the quarter. Your completed assignment will be due during week 9 of the quarter. Please do not wait until the last minute to work on this assignment. It is your responsibility to submit the completed assignment before the DropBox closes. No hard copies or emailed copies will be accepted once the DropBox is closed.
This project requires the ability to understand and apply scientific knowledge that you acquire both inside and outside the anatomy and physiology classroom. You will be presented a pathology that is applicable to the systems we have covered and will be assigned by your instructor. This is a pathology that you may encounter in your nursing career.
As you progress through this course, you will acquire information in a sequential, topic-specific manner. Each topic will include information that is relevant to this assignment. For example, the knowledge you gain from the lesson on cell morphology will be applied to later system-specific questions. Your explanations on each sub-topic should include information from sources that go beyond the textbook or classroom. You are expected to clearly understand the meaning of each topic before you construct your answers. For example, you are expected to know the meaning of “homeostasis” and to understand the topics that are connected to it. Don’t forget to read and understand the rubric before you start. Refer to it often – it will help guide you through the process.
Criteria
1
Description of the pathology
2
Normal anatomy of major body system affected
3
Normal physiology of body system affected
4
Mechanism of pathophysiology
5
Prevention
6
Treatment
Students will be assigned individual topics related to physiology and pathological conditions of physiological systems.
The student will be required to complete criteria 1-7 in a written paper.
The paper will be a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 pages long not including a title and reference pages.
A minimum of three APA-style references must be included in the paper. There should be an APA-format references page at the end of the presentation. Additionally, in-text citations should be included when appropriate. Reputable resources include peer-reviewed journal articles, textbooks, interviews with clinicians who deal with these pathologies on a daily basis, personal experiences, class lectures, and other scientific sources.
The student should use a font size of 12, Times New Roman, and double-spaced throughout. The paper should be written with the text aligned to the left margin with 1” margins.
Students should review the information about plagiarism in the Student Catalog. Any copying of information from another source without giving proper credit through a citation will be met with severe consequences. In line with this, however, the entire presentation should not be directly copied from other sources. The student is expected to compose ideas in their own words, and only use text from other sources as a minor supplement.

Research to discover signs or symptoms of dehydration.

Scenario/Summary
History:
A 4-week-old has been vomiting repeatedly for the past several days. It is getting worse. Today it occurs immediately after nursing and is so forceful it shoots across the room! He appears ravenously hungry, and drinks vigorously, but immediately vomits again.
Physical Exam:
Infant has evidence of dehydration. On abdominal exam there is a small, firm, “lump” that can be felt in the upper abdomen.
Labs/tests:
An abdominal ultrasound shows thickening of the pylorus
Assessment:
Pyloric stenosis
Consider the effect that repeated vomiting would have on the electrolytes of the body.
He will need to receive IV fluids to correct his dehydration and electrolyte imbalances before heading to surgery to relieve the obstruction.
Deliverables
Answer the following questions based on the scenario and article above and save your responses in a Microsoft Word document. Provide a scholarly resource in APA format to support your answers.
Understanding that HCl is produced in the stomach and that he has been vomiting his stomach contents, predict the acid/base imbalance that repeated vomiting will cause.
Predict the effect on blood chloride level from repeated vomiting?
“Normal saline” is often used to treat dehydration. What does it mean for the saline to be “normal”?
Research to discover signs or symptoms of dehydration. List 3.
Explain how an alteration in respiratory rate can compensate for an acid- base imbalance.
