You are required to write a critical analysis of the disease of your choice.
Included in this analysis, you will need to explain how the disease you chose
affects the various body systems where relevant.
The following relevant and concise information must (if pertinent) be included in your write up.
▪ Name of disease
▪ History of the disease
▪ Description of disease
Anatomy of the system(s) involved
▪ Effects on other body systems
▪ Cause of disease
▪ Signs and symptoms
▪ Diagnosis of the disease
▪ Complications, if any
▪ Treatment and side effects
Conclusion should include the following:
▪ Brief mention of current or proposed research that may significantly impact the
▪ disease.
▪ Prevention strategies if any
▪ Your insight / opinion
NOTE: you must focus on the anatomy & physiology of the disease/disorder. Cover
the normal anatomy & physiology of the organ system affected and then state what the
disease/disorder does to this organ system, and other organ systems. In other words, if
you are picking tuberculosis, I do not want you to go too much in detail about the
bacteria that causes it but how the bacteria escape our body’s defenses and what the
bacteria do to the lungs, bones, etc.

Discuss why you believe that vision is considered to be the most important sense in the flight environment

Answer the following four discussion questions:
1. The eye is an amazing part of the human system. To truly appreciate its inner workings, first compare and contrast the photoreceptors of the eye, then discuss the vision.jpgkey differences between focal and peripheral vision, and finally explain what the “physiological” blind spot is
2. In aviation, visual illusions can be interpreted as quite real events. One particular visual illusion which has proven to be quite deadly in aviation is the “black hole” illusion. With that said, describe what a “black hole” illusion is, what corrective action to take in-flight, and how an aviator can prevent it from occurring.
3. Hearing is another important sense in the aviation environment. Please discuss three types of hearing loss and what treatment or methods are available to mitigate hearing loss.
4. Discuss why you believe that vision is considered to be the most important sense in the flight environment.

Do you personally capitalize on one particular definition of “wealth”?

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read “Cognition: Overview and Recent Trends” (pp. 3-8), “Neuroscience Bases of Learning” (pp. 9-15), and “Learning in a Cross-Cultural Perspective” (pp. 16-22) in your text.
Based on your resources this week, in an initial post of 450 to 600 words, explain how emotions and social learning are suggested to affect memory and thought processing. Apply skeptical inquiry to a brief discussion about how specific thinking styles may also be highly important to the learning process (Zhang & Sterberg, 2005, 2010). Explain the theoretical perspective of “wealth” as a predictor of academic success. Describe how the multifaceted complexities of “wealth” may affect performance and success. Apply the concept of “wealth” to your own past academic success. Do you personally capitalize on one particular definition of “wealth”? If so, how? Apply the Type I thinking style outlined in the Zhang and Sterberg (2010) “Learning in a Cross-Cultural Perspective” article to each of your responses.
Guided Response: Review several of your colleague’s posts and respond to at least two of your peers by 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies early each week to stimulate more meaningful and interactive discourse in your discussions.
How does your explanation of emotion and social learning differ from your peers’ explanations? Did your colleague address his or her personal application of “wealth” in a way that is similar or different than your own past experiences? Did your peer apply the Type I thinking style to his or her initial post? If not, pose questions that could encourage the application of this area of the discussion. Look for peers whose posts have not yet been responded to and reply to these so that everyone has a chance to reflect and develop their knowledge more fully. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST) on Day 7 of the week and respond to anyone who replies to your initial post. Peer responses may vary in length but should be detailed and thought provoking. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.

Are you directly morally responsible for this person’s death?

I have updated the grades for the course. Please let me know if you have any questions or want more feedback. One general comment I will make is about the sources you choose for your assignments each week. Please stay away from sites like Sparknotes, Wikipedia, or WordPress blogs that address similar topics to this class.
Consider what was discussed previously regarding both utilitarian perspectives for moral action and Kant’s Categorical Imperative. Now suppose (as I am sure has happened to you many times) that a homeless person asks for change or a dollar as you walk by them on the street. Now consider Nagel’s article on “Moral Luck”. Does giving a dollar to the homeless person increase overall happiness or achieve some other universally acceptable moral aim? Consider also that some interpretations of utilitarianism suggest that we should give everything except those basic things we need to survive.
Or do we in fact have a duty, as the Categorical Imperative may or may not suggest, giving the person a dollar? Because we do not always have access to the antecedent conditions which may have place the homeless person in that position, are we in fact morally capable of making a judgment as to whether or not we should give them a dollar?
For instance, what if this person has a drug or alcohol addiction which was largely the cause for them to start living on the street initially? Furthermore, what if this is the last dollar they needed to purchase more drugs which in fact result in an overdose? Are you directly morally responsible for this person’s death? And if we do give them the dollar, are we still obliged to consider what it is they aim to do with it? (Recall here the Case of the Inquiring Murderer.)
Briefly outline what the Kantian and consequentialist position might be for this set of circumstances and provide reasons as to why we ought to prefer one over the other. Remember to consider the four kinds of luck that Nagel describes and how they might apply to your proposed solution.
Required Reading: Thomas Nagel “Moral Luck” (.pdf provided in Course Docs
Recommended Reading: “Moral Luck”, Introduction & Section 1 (Focus on Nagel’s formulation of moral luck; not Williams.)

Discuss any teratogenic effect of this individual not taking a folic acid supplement

A 32-year-old woman is concerned about the possibility of being pregnant. During the initial interview, you discover that she missed her usual menstrual cycle over 3 weeks ago. You also notice that her complexion is markedly tan for this time of the year (winter season). You briefly comment on this fact, and she states, “I want to keep my summer tan. So, I keep going to the tanning salon weekly.” She is here today to confirm the pregnancy with her primary care provider, and you are the nurse completing the initial interview. When asked if she has been taking a folic acid supplement, she states that she had “no concerns of pregnancy and was not aware of the need to take this medicine.” After she sees her primary care provider, he gives you the plan of care. The plan is to have a maternal serum marker test drawn today and recommend that she start on 600 μg of folic acid daily. In analyzing this case, please answer the following questions:
Discuss any teratogenic effect of this individual not taking a folic acid supplement. Explain what effect may occur on the developing fetus, identifying specific risks noted in this case.
Explain why the primary care provider included a maternal serum marker test in the plan of care for this individual.
Discuss the vulnerability of the fetus based on trimesters and teratogens and the role of the folic acid supplement.
Briefly discuss the how UVA and UVB rays contribute to the process of oncogenesis in skin cells.
How would you educate this individual on the risk of skin cancer related to increased exposure to UVA/UVB rays? Would you expect the primary care provider to perform a skin assessment during this visit? Why or why not?

explain why the illusion occurred and why the pilot succumbed to the illusion

In this case analysis you will review, and then analyze a mishap which involved a visual illusion. To get started, go to the NTSB Aviation Accident Database (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and locate an NTSB report which involved a visual illusion. Next, based on what you have read and have learned in this module, explain why the illusion occurred and why the pilot succumbed to the illusion. Then, present what corrective action the pilot should have taken to avoid the mishap from occurring. Please provide sound evidence for your conclusion by supporting it with information from the NTSB report and your new found knowledge of altitude physiology.
