No unread replies.No replies.

This week we discussed pathophysiology, fluid electrolyte and acid-base imbalances, congenital and genetic disorders. Select a topic from your readings, outcomes, objectives, concepts and sub-concepts (below)and present a question that applies to a concept or a disease process, wellness or illness. Using Voice Thread, submit your question in the following formats: audio, text or webcam. Once your comment has been posted, submit responses to your peers questions and comments. Consider the outcomes, objectives and concepts below when formulating your initial question.

Your question and response should explain, illustrate, justify, trace, discuss, compare, contrast, agree or disagree, interpret, evaluate, and summarize.
