Question Description
I’m working on a Anatomy question and need guidance to help me study.

Unit 2 Assessment – Emergency Room Visit

A young patient, 6 years old, arrives at the emergency department and has just fallen from their trampoline. They are being carried in by their parents because the patient cannot put any weight on their right leg. After being briefly assessed you read the following information from their chart:

femur is intact
synovial joint of patella is intact
both bones of the shin are fractured in the diaphysis
epiphyseal line is not damaged
phalanges, metatarsals, and tarsals did not suffer any damage.

Explain each of the observations above to your patient and their parents so that they understand what happened to the leg.
Be specific and discuss all bones of the lower limb and if they should expect any growth issues with their bones.
Write your response on a Word document.
Unit 3 Assessment – Nervous System Responses

You wake up suddenly in the middle of the night after hearing a loud bang. You have no idea what caused the noise but are instantly awake and highly alert. After a few moments you realize that the noise was from a car outside. You return to bed and realize that your heart is pounding, you are sweating, and that you are respiring (inhaling/exhaling) very rapidly. Explain what has just happened to your body.
After resting in bed for another ten minutes, your heart rate returns to normal and you realize that you need to use the restroom. Explain what is now happening to your body in regards to your nervous system.
The following day you return to class, well rested, only to be told that you have a pop quiz in your anatomy and physiology course. You instantly feel ‘stressed’.

Review the Autonomic Nervous System in the unit materials.
Analyze events that may cause these systems to activate

Read each of the three scenarios above.
Respond to each scenario separately and
Discuss what is happening in relation to the nervous system and endocrine system in response to the stress.
Identify the specific systems that are being activated in each scenario.
Write your responses on a Word document.

Unit 4 Assessment – Breathing at High Altitude

You have decided to take a vacation and head into the mountains. When you first began a vacation, you noticed that you had a difficult time catching your breath. Knowing that at higher altitudes there is a lower oxygen content you understand that your body is undergoing some physiological changes.


Review the relationships between the circulatory and pulmonary systems
Identify the impact of differing oxygen levels in the circulatory system
Review the terms ventilation rate, erythrocyte count, and oxygen carrying capacity

Explain the physiological changes taking place with your circulatory system and pulmonary system as they relate to the higher altitude.
Be sure to include ventilation rate, erythrocyte count, and oxygen carrying capacity in your discussion.
Write your responses on a Word document.

Unit 5 Assessment – Immune Responses

Pathogens infect the body activating the innate followed by the adaptive immune system. Vaccines perform a very similar function, but one does not become ill during the primary immune response (initiated by a vaccine).


Review the following terms:
primary immune response
secondary immune response
adaptive immunity

Describe what happens during a primary followed by a secondary immune response when one becomes ill
Compare that to when one is vaccinated
Be sure to include the specific type of adaptive immunity each would elicit.
Write your responses on a Word document.

Unit 6 Assessment – Food Journal

It is important for us to understand that what we consume each day impacts the biochemical activity in our bodies. For this assignment, you are to keep a food journal and record all of the food and drink items that you consume over a 24-hour period.


Review the materials on chemical digestion
Analyze the different macromolecule categories
Identify specific locations where digestion takes place
Review the major enzymes that facilitate this process

After you have recorded everything you had to eat and drink during this 24-hour period, explain how each item is digested. In your response, complete the following:

You must identify the major macromolecules in each food/drink item.
After you have identified the major macromolecules, you then need to list where the chemical digestion of those macromolecules occurs and
Which enzymes are important for their proper digestion.
You may submit this information in a table format is desired for better organization and presentation.
Write up your responses in a Word document.

Unit 7 Assessment – Reproductive System

In this unit we focused on the reproductive systems of both males and females. Both systems are highly regulated by the endocrine system and the gonadotropin hormones.


Review the hormonal regulation of the male reproductive system
Review the hormonal regulation of the female reproductive system
Identify specific hormones that have an impact on each of these reproductive systems

For this assignment, you are to discuss the major hormones involved in both the male and female reproductive systems
Select one hormone that impacts both reproductive systems
Predict what would happen, in both systems, if this hormone was missing.
Write your response on a Word document.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.


Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
