There are two types of hemochromatosis, the primary is due to inherited genetic disorder, and secondary is build of iron by medical conditions like anemia and chronic liver disease. In this paper I chose to cover more about the hereditary one, Hereditary hemochromatosis is an autosomal recessive disorder categorized by inappropriate dietary absorption of iron causing advanced collection of iron in tissues, mainly in the liver, pancreas, heart, endocrine organs, and skin which may lead to end-stage organ damage during or after middle age.

...include, the opening of eyes, faster heart beats and goose bumps causing a shiver down one’s spine. The implied meanings of the Bahamas billboard create responses that contribute to the desire of people wanting to make a trip there. There are many meanings that are implied in the billboard such as the literal and figurative meanings. Ethos, pathos and logos offer persuasion in the billboard as well. A literal meaning is the primary or strict definition of a word. On the other hand, a figurative meaning involves a figure of speech and is usually metamorphic. The literal meaning of the billboard is that the Bahamas are legitimately 50 miles away. This means no matter who measures or as long as you are at the exact location of the billboard, the Bahamas will always be 50 miles away from that point. The figurative meaning is that the Bahamas are not located where the billboard is. In this case, the blue water is not actually where people are seeing it up in the sky on a board. Another type of figurative language used is a hyperbole because there is immediate overemphasis stated on the billboard. The overemphasis is: “everything is better.” Pathos persuades people by the emotions intended by that narrator, or in this case, an artist too. The sight of the billboard invokes people’s emotions so that they want to go. Maybe it makes people want to go so badly; they change plans or find a way to go as soon as they can. Ethos and logos are also used, because they persuade people by the......

Pathos

...Pathos The internet is pervasive in all element of U.S. life and has few, if any, restrictions for its usage. This element is often forgotten, but the first picture provided this week, is that of a Teddy Bear that is “shedding its skin”; which based on the statement “Children can learn many things on the internet” infers to the viewer that the Teddy Bear is stripping in a sexual nature. It is hard to look at the picture, initially being offended, but the advertising campaign is effective in that it appeals to pathos strongly. The Teddy Bear is representative of the most innocent aspect of childhood and it has been represented in a relatively non-sexual manner, but infers sexual elements. As a parent, the picture appeals to me because it is taking the innocent element of my child and letting me know that there can be consequences to unrestricted internet viewing. Connotation is heavily used in this picture because it is implied that the Teddy Bear is stripped in a sexual manner. The inference is subtle, but unmistakable that something so innocent has been made to be sexual in nature. The advertisement is for iG Parental Control, which without its presence in the right hand corner may also lead the reader not to initially understand what is occurring in the picture. A child viewing the picture may have a very different understanding, but an adult who knows that children learn from example can clearly see the connotation that if a sexual image can be transplanted on......

Othello: Pathos

...Shakespeare has used pathos in vast ways to support character development and to build the readers or audiences’ relationship with the characters. Shakespeare makes his readers feel sympathy for certain characters by the way the antagonist treats them. In Othello, Iago used Roderigo, tricked Othello, and mistreated the female characters in the play. Iago helps develop the theme of jealousy throughout the play by exploiting some of the major characters. The truths about some characters are shown clearly to the audience which helps them establish their opinions and feelings about them. Shakespeare uses pathos to get his reader’s point of view of a character. In the beginning of the play, the audience was able to discover that Iago was misusing Roderigo for his own benefit. He was taking his money and lying about loyalty. Iago could care less about Roderigo; all he could think was to get back at Othello and release his jealousy towards him and Cassio. At this point, the audience feels sympathy for Roderigo and somehow relate to his pain. Having to live without someone you love dearly can lead to dramatic conclusions, like the one Roderigo was thinking of. “It is silliness to live, when to live is torment.” (I, iii, 305) Even though Iago acts like a loyal friend to Roderigo and promises him he will get Desdemona for him, the audience knows he is only taking advantage of him. Because of Iago, Roderigo is feeding off of his jealousy towards Othello, and doing everything Iago......

The Use of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos

...The Use of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos Author’s Name Course Name Instructor’s Name Date The Use of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos Aristotle found out that most writers had a difficult time in making their arguments convincing to their readers. To solve this problem, he developed three key strategies namely ethos, pathos, and logos to help writers pass the message clearly, and as intended. Weida and Stolley (2013) argue that all strategies should be used at the same time to make a good argument. However, other scholars emphasize that these strategies should be used with caution as not all are ideal in every type argument. Ethos Weida and Stolley (2013) say that a writer who uses ethos well establishes credibility, and reliability. According to PathosEthosLogos.com, it makes the writer appear to have great character. The goal of every writer is to make his argument persuasive to his readers. In order to make a connection with the readers, the writer must look knowledgeable, and authoritative in a particular subject of contention. For example, a management writer could wish to teach his readers on the benefits of proper book-keeping to a business. In this regard, he could start by giving examples of businesses that have succeeded by maintaining proper business records. He could as cite relevant statistics to show that book-keeping is a good practice for every business. However, he should show respect to readers who are of a different opinion. If possible, and......

Ethos Logos Pathos

...Ethos, pathos and logos each have a different meaning:- * Ethos is an appeal to ethics, and it is a means of convincing someone of the character or credibility of the persuader. * Pathos is an appeal to emotion, and is a way of convincing an audience of an argument by creating an emotional response. * Logos is an appeal to logic, and is a way of persuading an audience by reason. Examples of Ethos: When I am the nominee, I will offer a clear choice. John McCain won't be able to say that I ever supported this war in Iraq, because I opposed it from the beginning. Senator McCain said the other day that we might be mired for a hundred years in Iraq, which is reason enough to not give him four years in the White House. If we had chosen a different path, the right path, we could have finished the job in Afghanistan, and put more resources into the fight against bin Laden; and instead of spending hundreds of billions of dollars in Baghdad, we could have put that money into our schools and hospitals, our road and bridges – and that's what the American people need us to do right now. Barack Obama Potomac Primary Night Speech February 12, 2008   "I have pledged myself and my colleagues in the cabinet to a continuous encouragement of initiative, responsibility and energy in serving the public interest.

Bill Clinton Essay (Pathos, Ethos, Rhetorical Apeal

...Clinton answered this question by referring to his personal experience in Arkansas when he balanced their budget 11 times. I believe this helped Clinton gain at least a grain of credibility in the eyes and ears of the audience. Clinton referred back to his quality of selflessness when he made the statement, “now I don’t have all the answers, but I do know the old ways don’t work.” By admitting this limitation, Clinton was stating that his ideas might not solve every problem but he would do everything in his power to satisfy the problem or question at hand. He was referring back to the fact that he too could be classified as a common person. Another method Clinton used to make a connection emotionally with his audience was by the use of pathos. As stated above, Clinton was in-touch with his family. From the beginning of the speech, Clinton was using verbal references toward this idea. Clinton made the remarks in the second paragraph of his speech, “Tonight I want to talk with you about my hope for the future, my faith in the American people, and my vision of the kind of country we can build.” Clinton used great wording in this statement. He used a small but powerful word, this word was we. This showed the audience his passion for how he conducted his life and business around family. This family as stated above was more than just blood related. This family was every person in which Clinton reached out to on an emotional level through verbal wordings. Clinton used the......

She wanted to make it clear when she returned home the she wasn’t the legend that the media made her out to be. Lynch said “many soldiers like Pat Tilman don’t have that oppritunity.” Description of Method Jessica Lynch’s speech will be explored by Aristotle’s three artistic proofs ethos, pathos, and logos. Proof examines persuasion, and persuasion must convince its listeners. Aristotle divides proof into two categories, artistic and inartistic. An inartistic proof is given by the situation and can only be used by the rhetor. The rhetor cannot make up and inartistic proof. An artistic proof is defined as the use of persuasion created by the speaker. There are three kinds of artistic proofs, which are ethos, pathos and logos. The first artistic proof is Ethos, which is the personal character of the speakers. “The study of ethos is very important because the audiences judge not only the argument presented, but the speaker as well.” The second artistic proof is pathos which is appeal based on emotion. Aristotle believed that effective speakers should understand the audiences emotions. The third artistic proof is logos which is appeal based on logic or reason. There are two types of reasoning, induction and deduction. One form of induction is reasoning from examples or reasoning from a particular case to a general conclusion. Deduction relies not on......

...Congress,” which shows the status and credibility of the men enforcing this declaration. He also establishes his ethos when he lists the errors of the King of Britain. He is giving evidence towards his claim, making it seem more believable, and therefore instilling a sense of credibility in the reader. Because Jefferson didn’t merely use his opinions or appeals to the heart to persuade his audience, he is much more authoritative in his argument. Pathos of the document: Emotion Thomas Jefferson also appeals to pathos. When he states, in the second paragraph, “Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government,” he is able to convey the anguish that the 13 colonies have experienced, and how they need to break free from Britain. As a reader, I found this sentence very powerful, and I’m sure when it was written, it was even more so, seeing as the writers/readers were the ones experiencing the suffering. Another place that Jefferson appealed to pathos was in the last sentence. He says, “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” By showing how much everyone is willing to sacrifice (lives, fortunes, and honor), it illustrates the amount of heart and passion that went into this document.

These results from the blood test are symptoms of mild anemia. The low RBC and the low Hbg is usually caused by an abnormality or a disease. Cancer and aplastic anemia can cause the body to produce fewer red blood cells. 3. All of George’s urine test results were abnormal.

Nr 304 Health History and Physical Examination Rua

...Health History and Physical Examination RUA Chamberlain College of Nursing November 2014 In this Assessment nursing course, one of the major things that is taught is the most important part of giving proper care to a patient. Correct patient assessment is needed before any nursing care plan or treatment can be implemented. This post-review of a person’s assessment will demonstrate the proper way to go about assessing a person’s health. Health History and Physical Examination Health History Under my care for the assessment was Felix Tshimanga, a 50-year old man who has been working in the hospital environment since his 20s. After living in New York for a little less than 10 years, he’s lived in Georgia for 10 years. The reason for his assessment is he complaints of being constantly exhausted, sporadic tight chest and occasional chest pain. The muscles in his neck are also tight, his stomach and abdomen area has gotten larger, and wears glasses for near-sightedness. Mr. Felix has been a medical doctor and college professor teaching anatomy and physiology for 25 years, and he is very educated in physical education and health. However, some cultural and psychosocial considerations include: he is an African-American, and he was born and raised in Congo, where staple food items such as cornmeal (maize or cassava) and plantains, are high in carbohydrates (Our Africa, 2014). He continues to eat traditional foods in addition to common American dishes (which are not......

Patho Chap 1

...Chapter 1 Introduction to Pathophysiology Lee-Ellen C. Copstead Key Questions • What is pathophysiology? • How are etiology and pathogenesis used to predict clinical manifestations and response to therapy? • How are normal and abnormal physiologic parameters defined? • What general factors affect the expression of disease in a particular person? • What kinds of information about disease can be gained through understanding concepts of epidemiology? http://evolve.elsevier.com/Copstead/ • Review Questions and Answers • Glossary (with audio pronunciations for selected terms) • Animations • Case Studies • Key Points Review Pathophysiology derives from the intersection of two older, related disciplines: pathology (from pathos, suffering) and physiology (from physis, nature). Pathology is the study and diagnosis of disease through examination of organs, tissues, cells, and bodily fluids. Physiology is the study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of living organisms. Together, as pathophysiology, the term refers to the study of abnormalities in physiologic functioning of living beings. Pathophysiology seeks to reveal physiologic responses of an organism to disruptions in its internal or external environment. Because humans exhibit considerable diversity, healthy structure and function are not precisely the same in any two individuals. However, discovering the common and expected responses to abnormalities in physiologic functioning is useful, and......

Patho Case Study

...Patho Case Study 1 E.O. is an 8-year-old girl with a history of asthma and allergy to bee stings. She has been brought to the clinic complaining of a throat infection. Her health care provider prescribes a course of penicillin to manage her current infection and cautions her parents to watch her closely for a reaction. Discussion Questions   1. What type of reaction is the health care provider concerned about and why? The type of reaction that the health care provider is concerned about is an allergic reaction to the penicillin.   Since E.O is already allergic to bee stings and has a history of asthma, which are both Type I hypersensitivities, it is very likely that E.O could have an allergic reaction to the penicillin.   Since penicillin is found in cow milk and the patient could have been exposed to it through milk, breast milk, or in utero, E.O could become sensitized to it.   If E.O is further exposed to the allergen (being that her health care provider prescribed her penicillin), there could be an allergic reaction to it.   Exposure to penicillin can result in the degranulation in mast cells and the release of histamine, which could cause the reaction, which is even more likely since E.O has two Type I hypersensitivities.      2. Explain the role of IgE and mast cells in type I hypersensitivity reactions. Why might E.O. react adversely to the antibiotic with the first use? During sensitization, IgE antibodies bind to the surface of mast cells, which makes the......

Ethos Pathos Logos

...rhetorical analysis on from the Top 100 American Speeches on www.americanrhetoric.com, I had to choose his “Inaugural Address” from January 20, 1961. This speech is ranked second, under Martin Luther King Jr.’s, “I Have a Dream.” President Kennedy utilized many of the tools typically used in rhetorical or persuasive writing. He took full advantage of Aristotle’s three areas of rhetorical speech writing: Ethos, Pathos, and Logos, paired along with other literary tools such as repetition, rhythm, and comparison. President Kennedy opens his speech by establishing credibility, or ethos, “For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three-quarters ago.(Americanrhetoric.com)” This excerpt tells the American people that he has followed the rules and has a legitimate responsibility to the American public as did the Presidents in the past. He is official. Then, a few moments later, JFK begins to capitalize on the emotions of the people, tying himself to them, identifying with them by using words such as “we.” This is the pathos part of his speech, “the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans -- born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.......
