Learners review normal conditions that are associated with aging. Changes are highlighted in the cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary, reproductive, endocrine, nervous, and sensory systems.
Causes and Risk Factors of Cerebral Vascular Accidents
In this interactive object, the learner examines the causes, symptoms, and risk factors associated with a stroke. The terms "thrombus," "emboli," and "hemorrhage" are defined. A self-assessment of risk factors completes the activity.
Learners use peripheral vascular assessment data to examine characteristics of these four conditions: peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis, chronic venous insufficiency, and acute arterial occlusion. A matching exercise completes the learning object.
