Respiratory disease typically bring to mind lung cancer, emphysema, asthma, COPD, and pneumonia. OF these, the one most often associated with bacterial infection is pneumonia, though it can be caused by other microbes and viruses or even chemical inhalation. In all circumstances, the vital function of gas exchange is hampered when chemicals and pathogens limit or prohibit the process.
In this activity, you will explore a case study centered on a respiratory infection. Did it originate in the lung or migrate there from an infection in another organ system? Only your case study and work in the Virtual Lab can answer that!
Open the VUMIEtm 2012 software and turn in the Micro Digital Media lab manual to Exercise 26.
Your instructor will direct you on whether to turn in the Virtual Lab Report or completed MDM Exercise 26 pages.
When done, you may be asked to take a quiz over this material.
