Choose a chronic disease that either involves both the cardiovascular AND respiratory systems OR one disease for each system (two total)

1. Why is it important to utilize educational materials such as brochures, videos, or web sites with animations and photos when learning about and the anatomy and physiology of disease for yourself, and in preparation for teaching others?

 

Then, for your initial post you will:

Choose a chronic disease that either involves both the cardiovascular AND respiratory systems OR one disease for each system (two total)

Locate an educational material found on the web that  helps you to explain the anatomy and physiology of the disease(s). The more fun, engaging, or interesting, the better! Try sites such as: the CDC  web site, the NIH web site, a disease foundation web site, or other credible site

Post the link to your material and include any  background or missing information that you think is important to know about  the disease(s) and the effect on the body. Focus on lifestyle components  that can increase one’s risk factors for the disease (being sure to indicate why this lifestyle component increases one’s likelihood for  developing the disease)

Using sources of all kinds is an important facet of information literacy and patient education.  Sometimes, it’s just easier to find a video, animation, simulation, or other type of material and allow it to do most of the demonstrating and teaching for you. In those instances, it’s important to practice your skills of being able to identify missing pieces of information from those teaching materials and to supplement with your own additional teaching and information. In this discussion, you will be locating a web resource, sharing it with your peers, and filling in the gaps of information for a patient with a cardiovascular and respiratory disease.

First, let’s start with questions based on your opinion:
