(20 points) Osteoarthritis: Disorder that is caused from wear and tear on the joints that results in destruction of the cartilage. Without this cartilage layer to cushion the bones, they will over time directly rub against one another making movement difficult and painful (Osteoarthritis, 2014). Hypertension: This is a condition that occurs when there is increased arterial pressure and the heart has to exert more force when pumping to overcome this. Patients blood pressure should be monitored (Hypertension, 2015) History of Breast Cancer: Malignant tumor that starts out in the breast cell tissue and can rapidly grow and spread to other parts of the body (American Cancer Society, 2014). History of Ovarian Cancer: Malignant tumor that begins in the ovaries (female reproductive organ) and can grow and spread throughout the body. The ovaries are responsible for creating the hormones estrogen and progesterone (American Cancer Society, 2014. ORIF (L) hip ( open reduction and internal fixation) : This is a 2-part surgery that is done to fix a broken bone. The bone is first “reduced” or put back in place and then “internally fixated” with screws/pins to hold the broken parts together. It is then stitched up and allowed to heal(Mount Sinai Hospital, 2015). Explained how multiple health problems might be linked or impact on one another?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
