The concept maps are intended to help you pull out the most important information while the pictures and/or mnemonics are intended to help you remember.  Once you know the information, use these resources as a guide to help you apply and analyze what you know to come to conclusions about a patient with this disease.  This assignment is designed so that all students get the benefit of a concept map and picture/mnemonic without having to do all the work yourself. 

Concept maps and pictures/mnemonics are graded with each submission

Diseases: HYPERKELEMIA

1.  CM: Types 

· expand on how they differ

· Example:  Diabetes   Bullet points  *DM type 1 *DM type 2 *Gestational DM  You would expand and tell us how they are categorized.  DM type 1 – requires insulin, pt does not produce their own insulin DM type 2 – generally caused by metabolic syndrome, pt makes insulin but either not enough or they have become insulin resistant  Gestational – diabetes that occurs during pregnancy

2.  CM:  Causes

· expand on how the cause affects the person

· Example:  Atherosclerosis  Bullet points on CM might be *High fat diet *Genetics, etc.  You would expand and tell us WHY a high fat diet causes atherosclerosis and WHY some people are genetically inclined to have a high cholesterol count and therefore atherosclerosis… go into the details to help peers start exploring the “BUT WHY”.

3.  CM:  Patho

· bullet point major points – then expand

4.  CM:  Treatments

· bullet point major points – then tell us a little bit more about the procedure, medication, etc. (as it pertains to this class – how will the med affect the patho? etc.)

5.  CM:  Diagnostic tests

· bullet point tests – then expand as it pertains to this class

6.  PM:  Description  – this may take a little creativity as it depends on the picture and/or mnemonic on how you will divide up the expansion.
