2225 L Clinical Explanation

  1. 1. BIOL
2225:
Physiology
Laboratory
 Writing
a
Clinical
Explanation
of
Experimental
Procedures
 Goals:

 • Connect
laboratory
experimentation
to
clinical
topics
to
increase
understanding
 • Develop
skills
necessary
to
effectively
communicate
with
patients
about
what
to
expect
during
test
procedures
 and
what
the
results
of
the
test
mean.


 Instructions:
 • The
assignment
should
be
written
in
your
own
words!
 • All
of
the
information
necessary
to
complete
this
assignment
can
be
found
in
the
textbook.


 • Reference
pages
have
been
given
for
each
experiment
on
your
lab
schedule.


 • If
you
use
outside
sources,
be
sure
that
they
are
trust‐worthy
and
include
APA
citations
of
each
source
in‐list.

 Answer
the
following
questions:
 1. A
patient
may
be
scheduled
to
receive
the
given
experimental
procedure
we
will
be
using
in
lab
this
week
(EEG,
 ECG,
or
RESP)
as
a
test
for
what
kind
of
disorder
or
disease?

Provide
one
example.
 2. Write
a
paragraph
describing
the
test
to
a
patient
with
this
disorder
or
disease.


 Include:
 • How
is
the
test
done?

 • Will
they
be
connected
to
any
machinery?
 • Will
they
be
asked
to
do
anything
other
than
sit
and
breathe
normally?
 • What
will
be
measured?
 • How
can
this
data
be
used
to
diagnose
and
determine
appropriate
treatments
for
disease?
 
 Sample
Clinical
Explanation
for
Sphygmomanometry
:

 
 1. 
A
patient
may
receive
sphygmomanometry

to
test
for
changes
in
their
blood
pressure
that
could
occur
with
 othostatic
hypotension
in
which
there
is
not
immediate
control
of
blood
pressure
upon
standing.
 2. Today
you
will
be
receiving
a
test
called
sphygmomanometry,
also
known
as
a
blood
pressure
test.

The
test
is
 done
by
placing
an
inflatable
cuff
on
your
upper
arm
and
a
stethoscope
on
the
inside
of
your
elbow.

The
 inflatable
cuff
is
attached
to
an
air
pump
that
will
inflate
and
then
slowly
deflate
the
cuff,
and
a
barometer
that
 measures
the
pressure
applied
to
your
arm.

I
will
be
using
the
stethoscope
to
listen
to
the
sounds
produced
by
 blood
moving
through
your
arteries.

You
will
have
this
test
done
while
laying
down,
sitting
up
and
then
 standing.

We
will
be
measuring
the
pressure
in
your
arteries
when
your
heart
is
contracting,
and
when
your
 heart
is
relaxed
to
get
the
two
numbers
that
represent
blood
pressure.

Your
blood
pressure
will
stay
the
same
 in
all
positions
if
you
are
not
suffering
from
orthostatic
hypotension,
because
your
body
will
immediately
take
 action
to
keep
your
blood
pressure
the
same.

By
examining
the
changes
in
your
blood
pressure
in
these
three
 positions,
the
doctor
can
determine
if
you
are
suffering
from
orthostatic
hypotension.

The
sphygmomanometry
 data
will
be
examined
along
with
information
on
your
heart
rate
and
breathing
activity,
to
determine
your
best
 treatment
options.
