Blow Us Away STI’s Usually, when instructors lecture about Sex

Blow Us Away STI’s Usually, when instructors lecture about Sexually Transmitted Infections during an in-person course, they talk about some surprising facts about STI’s in addition to the standard facts and photos about them. For this discussion forum, I want you to look through the facts and pictures in the textbook and Learning Objects on STI’s/HIV/AIDS and find THREE facts that surprised you about any of the STI’s presented. For each of the facts you choose, I want you to do the following: 1) Describe each “surprising fact” (it doesn’t have to be surprising to anyone but you, fyi). Be sure to name the STI(s) that it might be associated with and provide a detailed description of the thing that surprised you. It doesn’t have to be an infection itself — it can be a fact, a piece of history, a trend, disturbing scientific fact, etc. 2) For each “surprising fact”, also describe the population of people that should know more about this — be specific. Demographic categories such as Gender, Age, socio-economic group, ethnicity, region, country, education level??? Why should this group of people know more about the “surprising fact” that you’ve chosen. 3) Anything else you can think of? Other thoughts??

Respond in the following ways: (POSITIVE COMMENT) Share insight

Respond in the following ways: (POSITIVE COMMENT) Share insights on how the factor you selected( THE FACTOR I SELECTED IS ATTACHED BELLOW IN A DOCUMENT) impacts the pathophysiology of the disorder your colleague selected. Expand on your colleague’s posting by providing additional insights or contrasting perspectives based on readings and evidence.                                                                      Main Post To provide excellent patient care, practitioners must understand information at the cellular level.  A good history and physical are essential for proper diagnosing. Useful learning tips might be weekly outlines, reading resources, completion of available exercises, and taking notes on topics one might not understand.  Pertinent information to include when evaluating a patient is the complaint, the assessment, the diagnostics, treatment plan, and educating the patient (Laureate Education, 2012). Cystic Fibrosis and the White Population      Huether & McCance (2017) state 1:3000 cases of CF among the white population and Hammer & McPhee (2019) state 1:2000 cases of CF among the white population.  CF is very rare in Asians (Hammer & McPhee, 2019). 1 in every 29 whites in the United States is a carrier of CF (Huether & McCance, 2017). Pathophysiology of Cystic Fibrosis      Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is caused by an abnormal expression of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTCR) gene.  CF is considered an obstructive lung disease.  The defective chloride transporter gene is housed in the exocrine gland.  This faulty gene leads to water flow abnormality and results in viscous secretions primarily affecting the lungs but can also affect the reproductive organs and digestive tract as well (Huether & McCance, 2017).  Symptoms or signs that may present to aid in the diagnosis of CF might be a delayed passing of meconium in the infancy stage.  Foul-smelling, floating stool due to the malabsorption of fats could be a symptom.  A cough, pulmonary infections, failure to thrive, and dyspnea are additional signs (Berkowitz, 2007).  Intracellular change related to CF is the defective CFTCR gene.   References Berkowitz, A.
