journal they state that although it is not often heard about it, abdominal aortic aneurysms are becoming a serious issue and are known as the “silent killer”. They are known as this because if they do not have any real symptoms or make themselves known about until they rupture and once, they do, it could be the end of that person’s life due to the amount of blood they can lost (Altobelli. Rapacchietta. Profeta. Fagnano). Another really great creditable source I found within the Purdue Global library was another academic journal called “Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm” by Mary L Schreiber. This is another great source to support my conclusions about abdominal aortic aneurysms because within this article it states that the risk factors of these aneurysms are similar to thoughts of a stroke which as most people know is a serious diagnosis that kills thousands of people a year (Schreiber).

    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.
