I was thinking of doing skin diseases caused by the sun or skin cancer due to the sun. I am in Vegas, so I was interested in the long run health of sun exposure on the skin. What should I focus on? Is this a good topic for a report? How should I title this report? We can write on any topic that is related to anatomy and physiology.

The course objectives include:

Research paper -
1. Outline
2. Rough Draft
3. 2nd Draft
4. Final Draft

It also includes grading rubics. What is grading rubics???? Also, we are not going to do a oral presentation, just a report. Hope that information will help you help me.

Solution Preview

I think this would be a very good topic to choose. A paper on the effects of sun exposure on skin would involve both anatomy and physiology and gives you several options to focus on. And, I notice from the course objectives that your professor wants an outline and two rough drafts -- this is good because you'll get lots of feedback from him on what he likes and doesn't like.

For now, let's focus on skin cancer caused by sun exposure. If the professor wants you to expand the topic or if you can't find enough information to make the paper as long as it need to be, you can change the topic to include other skin diseases that involve sun exposure and/or the other (non-disease) affects of sunlight on the skin.

(1) Title:

For a scientific paper, titles can be ...

Solution Summary

The solution includes a suggestion for the topic of the paper, a possible title, topics that should be included in the paper, and suggestions for writing it.

Anatomy and Physiology of Respiratory System

1. Explain how carbon monoxide interferes with oxygen transport. Be sure to include the binding of CO to hemoglobin. If the air is contaminated with 0.1% CO and CO binds with about 200 times more affinity than oxygen (21% O2 in normal air), then what will be the ratio of oxygen versus CO bound?

2. A 65 yo male patient goes to the emergency room complaining of shortness of breath (SOB) and dyspnea on exertion (for the past two years). He is thin with a large chest, smokes two packs of cigarettes/day and is in moderate respiratory distress. What is the problem you suspect (diagnosis and the etiology (cause, include the underlying mechanism and elastase effects))? What would you expect for the value of the Spirometry results (low, normal or high) for TLC, FRC, RV and for FVC and FEV?

3. A woman goes to the emergency room complaining of chest pain. A lung scan reveals an embolus in the lung. He respiratory rate is 24 breaths/minute (hyperventilation, due to panic). Her arterial blood PO2 is low (hypoxia) but her alveolar PO2 is high, Why? Her blood PCO2 is also lower and her blood pH is high. Why, explain?

4. A 43 y.o. woman goes to the Emergency room with acute onset of pain in her right upper quadrant (that radiates down the right shoulder). She reports that the pain is worse after she eats a fatty meal. Ultrasound shows an enlarged gall bladder with multiple gallstones. Explain how gallstones can block the flow of bile and what may cause the pain? Why would a fatty meal make the pain worse? What effect does CCK have on gastric emptying?
