For the final week’s discussion, select ONE of the following topics and write a 150+ word response. Your initial post should be posted by Thursday and two replies of at least 35 words each by Sunday. (No bonus opportunities this week).
1. Two men have observed blood in their stool. One states that the blood is bright red. The other claims his stool is black. Discuss the causes for the differing symptoms and the potential implications and further work-up for each
2. Visit the website http://www.barnesjewish.org/liver-transplant-patient-storiesLinks to an external site. (or another site if you can find one or if you prefer, a real patient) and read several of the stories about liver transplants. Note the patients’ conditions that led to liver failure and the process by which they obtained a new liver. Share your findings with the class and discuss patient care during recovery for organ recipients.
