Week 6 – Diseases of the Respiratory & Digestive Systems (Case Study)

Week 6 – Diseases of the Respiratory & Digestive Systems (Case Study)

Discussion Topic

Top of Form

Create a case study similar to the one you created in week 3, but choose a pathology of the respiratory or digestive system as your original post. Ask some questions from your case study that you would like your classmates to comment on. Then, reply to two other case studies from other students.

This is an exercise in getting to know patients condition before death. Knowing these pathologies will help you, as the embalmer, to know what possible plan of action to take in preparing the deceased.


Here are some sample questions you can ask.

1) What disorder do you think the person had at the time of death? 

2) What potential complications do you anticipate? 

3) What precautions should you take as the embalmer to limit the effects of these complications? 

Let me know if you need clarification on anything. There are many disorders to choose from. Use your text and credible medical websites to help you. The discussions are a great way to learn and exchange information with others in the class.  Students are asked to have their main post completed by end of day Thursday. Your two responses are due by end of day Sunday, or you will not receive full credit for the assignment. 



The landlord of a 61-year-old female called for medical assistance after he found her in her bed unresponsive. He said that her employer contacted him and requested that he check on her because she had not come into work that day and it was very unlike her. He said when he walked in and the heater was on, but it was not very warm in her apartment. When he found her, he noted that there was a small amount of vomit on her pillow. Emergency services noted the bright red color of her skin and apparent swelling of her face. They also noted many things that seemed to stand out in her tidy home, almost like she had been rearranging her furniture moments before she decided to lay down and go to sleep seemingly to never wake again. A chair had been knocked over in the living room, a glass had been broken on the kitchen floor, and the water was still running in the bathroom sink. These disturbances, along with the state of the deceased, and the report from the landlord, provide them ample information to suggest the cause of death, which would be confirmed later.

Payton’s post:

Patient X is seeing their PCP for complaints of fatigue, weakness, and weight loss. Patient X tells their doctor that they go about their day normally, although fatigue and weakness can hinder their daily performance. Patient X lost their spouse 1 year prior to this visit. The doctor orders a test to check the thyroid levels, but it comes back normal. The doctor prescribes an antidepressant for Patient X and they are sent home. A couple of months later Patient X is admitted to the ER for abdominal pain. The doctors in the ER noticed that Patient X has lost 50 lbs since their visit with their PCP, has dark urine, localized edema in the legs and abdomen, and is presenting with a yellow tint to their eyes and skin. Patient X’s brother states that Patient X had a problem with alcohol about 2 years ago, but has not had a drink since his wife passed away. The patient dies 2 days after admission.

This week we will be reviewing Alkyl Halides, or Haloalkanes. I want you search for a particular haloalkane used in the outside world, and discuss the properties that make it useful in a practical application, and why you selected this particular haloalkane.  

There’s a LOT of these out there and depending on dose, they have a variety of applications. 

For example, Methyl Chloride, also known as Chloromethane, is a colorless, odorless, and flammable gas. It was once used a refrigerant, but due to its highly toxic nature it is no longer used in this manner. Today it is used a solvent in the manufacturing of rubber and petroleum. What caught my interest on this chemical was the fact that it was both a refrigerant as well as a local anesthetic and even an herbicide. Not too often you can find something that can put you under or kill your weeds.

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.

  • I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

    Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

    After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.

  • How will I receive a completed paper?

    You will get the first version of your paper in a non-editable PDF format within the deadline. You are welcome to check it and inform us if any changes are needed. If everything is okay, and no amendments are necessary, you can approve the order and download the .doc file. If there are any issues you want to change, you can apply for a free revision and the writer will amend the paper according to your instructions. If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.
  • Where do I upload files?

    When you submit your first order, you get a personal account where you can track all your orders, their statuses, your payments, and discounts. Among other options, you will have a possibility to communicate with your writer via a special messenger. You will be able to upload all information and additional materials on your paper using the “Files” tab on your personal page. Please consider uploading everything you find necessary for our writer to perform at the highest standard.
