Case Study: Cells and Structures
In this module, you will complete a directed case. This type of case study is designed to enhance your understanding of fundamental concepts, principles, and facts. The case consists of a short, dramatic scenario accompanied by a set of “directed” questions. Some of the answers to the questions can be found in the textbook or the lectures, while other questions may require you to do additional research.
Gabriella Borrego reply for this please
1. Based upon the findings presented, which doctor made the correct initial prediction
– Based on the findings presented I believe that Dr. Green was correct in saying that Mike is suffering from a spinal cord injury.
2. Based upon previous knowledge of brain function, what results from the testing were consistent with a brain injury?
– The results that were consistent with a brain injury showed that Mike was experiencing abnormal responses in the right eye. As well as this he was experiencing severe dizziness and headaches after the accident.
3. Based upon previous knowledge of spinal cord function, what results from the testing were consistent with a spinal cord injury?
– The results that were consistent with a spinal cord injury showed that Mike was experiencing decreased strength and movement in the right upper and lower extremities and absence of reflexes in the right upper extremity. All of the motor testing showed that he was showing many signs of spinal cord injury.
4. Based upon previous knowledge of CNS function, what results could be consistent with both types of injury?
-Based on CNS function we can see that the sensory testing showing decreased sensation to touch, pain, and pressure is consistent with both type of injuries as the spinal cord send the message to the brain when the body is experiencing any type of sensation especially pain.
5. Assuming the incorrect diagnosis true, predict how the findings would be different.
– The findings would be slightly different as Mike would most likely have difficulty hearing and speaking while also having memory and concentration problems. He would also show abnormal cognitive testing as he would have memory issues and problems with speech.
