TOPIC – Cystic fibrosis
Your discussion thread title should be the name of the disorder. If possible, you should choose a disorder that has not been chosen by a peer. Because there are only 20 respiratory disorders on the list, it may be necessary to choose a disorder that another peer has chosen. You can complete your initial post using bullet points or a short answer.In your initial post, discuss the following questions about your chosen disorder:
- Concept and Etiology: How does the disease affect the respiratory system in particular? How does it deviate from the definition of health discussed in Module One?
- Classification: How is the disease classified?
- Clinical Manifestations (Symptoms and Signs): What are the symptoms and signs of the disease or disorder? Be sure you understand the difference between symptoms (subjective) and signs (objective).
- Diagnostic Tests: What are some additional diagnostic tests that can be done to illuminate the diagnosis? For example, when you injure your ankle, they take an X-ray to determine if it is broken or sprained.
