create a fake medical “condition” using at least three terms or word parts in any combination.

Paper details:
For this project you will create a medical “condition” using at least three terms or word parts in any combination. You are required to create a fictional condition with factual possibilities. You will be graded on your originality, creativity and ability to use and pronounce medical terminology. You are required to write a report (see example below) and You will present your fictional condition in a class presentation. You are required to use medical terminology, you will lose points for using lay-terms where medical terminology could be applied. • Your written report is due 2 December • You will give your oral presentation on 4 December Read the rubric below! It clearly explains how you will be graded. Guidelines Your project must include the following important factors (an example “condition” is provided below): 1. Name of the condition (using at least 3 word parts) 2. Definition of each word part 3. Give the condition an eponym and a common name. Explain the source of the eponym. 4. List and identify the body system(s), nerves, and vessels affected by the disorder. 5. Identify who the condition affects; sex, age-group, race, socioeconomic status, country or region of a country. 6. Describe how it is diagnosed, possible treatment procedures, and what medical specialists would treat it (these should be factual possibilities). 7. Describe any disabilities, disadvantages or advantages of the condition. 8. You must create a visual aid (Poster, PPT, pamphlets, etc.) to use for class presentation. Here is an example “condition”: Condition: Hyperthermic auris sinistra hyper = over thermic = temperature auris = ear sinistra = left Hyperthermic auris sinistra is also called “hot ear” or Clark’s Ear. David Clark is the inventor of the modern stereo jack aircraft intercom headphone system. The electrical cord is fed into the left earphone making it heavier and causing irritation when earphones are not properly fitted to the individual pilot’s ears. This is a non-communicable condition involving elevated temperatures of the left ear. Ill fitted headphones cause a superficial irritation to the Helix and Fossa triangularis of the auricle. These localized irritations cause a hypotonic environment in the auricle, creating turgor pressure in the cells. The condition occurs only to the left or sinistra auricle due to the unequal weight distribution of headphone. The patient will present localized erythema, diaphoresis, edema, or turgescence. Patient often complains of tinnitus, otalgia or neuralgia. The condition can become infectious; lesions may occur causing cellulitis of the auricle or acute necrotizing auriculitis. The condition can spread and become systemic, morbidity can be >90%. This condition involves the external ear, the posterior and anterior auricular arteries, and the Trigeminal, and Great auricular nerves of the auditory system. The lymph nodes may be involved if an infection occurs, the pre- and post- auricular nodes and nodes of parotid may become infected. The condition is caused by continuous pressure of poorly fitted headphones, first seen in military pilots in the early 1950; synthetic materials replaced natural sources to reduce costs of earphones. The condition was temporarily eradicated by properly fitting pilots with individual “Anti-Hotear” headsets, using natural ear cuff materials made from the llama undercoat fur. In the 1980s the condition resurfaced, most commonly affecting American and Canadian adolescences, specifically teens and young adults. Differential diagnosis involves various tests for ruling out ear infections, Meniere’s disease, barotrauma, acoustic neuroma or head injuries. Diagnosis is confirmed by patient history of headphone use for extensive time periods to include wearing of headphone while driving, studying, attending school and while sleeping. Examination of the auricle will present Helix and Fossa triangularis tenderness upon palpation and hot to the touch. The epidermis temperature should be taken on the Anti-helix and Scapha surfaces of the auricle, a difference of 10 degrees Fahrenheit from the rest of the patient’s body temperature indicates a positive diagnosis for Hyperthermic auris sinistra. Patients with a positive diagnosis of Hyperthermic auris sinistra will receive care from an otolaryngologist. Initial treatment includes thoroughly washing the dorsal auricle and irrigating the external ear with a warm saline solution. Application of a cold compress may help alleviate otalgia and neuralgia. Prophylaxis antibiotics should be administered to prevent and/or treat infections secondary to edema. Corticosteroids injected into the lobule will reduce edema and provide some relief. The permanent discontinuation of headphone use is crucial, Psychotherapy should be offered; addictive-like behavior is associated with listening to loud music via headphones according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) of the American Psychiatric Society.
