Note: Please use correct anatomical and physiological terms in your answers at all times. In all questions please refer to case presentationHistory to explain your reasoning.Case Study 1Joy is an 85-year old relatively fit gentleman with no major history of illness. Three days ago, he developed a low-grade fever. He also complained to his wife, Janet, of feeling like he has ‘razor-blades’ in his throat. When Janet looked inside Paul’s mouth, she saw white spots on his tonsils. She then insisted on taking Paul to see their GP, Sara. Later that afternoon, on examination in the GPs office, Paul had a fever of 39.8C. When Sara examined Paul’s throat she saw that Paul’s tonsils were now covered in white biofilm. The GP listened to Paul’s chest sounds but did not find anything abnormal. She also palpated his neck and found that in addition to swollen tonsils, Paul also had swollen neck lymph nodes. No other anomalies were identified when the GP assessed Paul’s lungs, but the GP informed Paul that he has bacterial tonsillitis.a) Discuss the events of an acute inflammatory response you would expect to see in Paul’s case. (Maximum 250 word –5 marks)b) Discuss the role of the lymphatic system and adaptive immune response in responding and resolving the bacterial infection in Paul’s case.(Maximum 250 word –5 marks)Case Study 2Michel exams are just around the corner and he is starting to experience increasing levels of anxiety. During the exam time, as the examiners distribute the exam, Jorge experiences a classic “fight orflight” reaction.a) Discuss the division of the nervous system that is responsible for this phenomenon. Which body systems are affected and how do they respond?(400 words -8 marks)RubricsWEIGHTING CRITERIA FOR MARKINGExcellentQ1: > 8 marksQ2: >11.1 marksQ3: > 6.5 marksQ4: >6.5 marks All elements of the question are accounted for in a relevant, correct and concise response which evidences clear understanding of content matter and the relationship between the elements. Required aspects are presented in balance, any content gaps evident are minor and do not detract from the overall comprehensive nature of the response. A concept map may be provided* which clearly supports reasoning and relates to the written response. Ideas are presented in paragraph form in a coherent (logical) and cohesive (linked) manner and response falls within designated word count range**. Applies APA conventions appropriately and accurately in text and post text; in text citations match Reference List, number required is evident. Message is clear and for the most part expression, grammar and language use is error free.GoodQ1: 6.5 – 8 marksQ2: 9.1 – 11.1 marksQ3: 5.3 – 6.4 marksQ4: 5.3 – 6.4 marks Elements of the question are mostly present in a relevant response, though some content gaps might be evident in that some parts may be missing or less developed giving a sense of imbalance, minor inaccuracies may be evident or relationship between elements may have needed to be explored more. A concept map* may be evident but may be slightly unclear in parts or there is a sense it may have been more developed, detailed or accurate. Ideas are presented in paragraph form in a generally coherent (logical) and cohesive (linked) manner, and response falls within 10% of the designated word count range**. Applies APA conventions in text and post text, though issues may be evident with use of sources, e.g. mis-citation, cited source not in Ref List, procedural errors in Ref list. Message is generally clear, some expression, grammar and language issues may be evident though not overly distracting.SatisfactoryQ1: 5.1 – 6.4 marksQ2: 7.1 – 9.0 marksQ3: 4.1 – 5.2 marksQ4: 4.1 – 5.2 marks Response has been attempted and broadly covers required aspects though there are clear content gaps with some parts underdeveloped or missing. Answer may display content/accuracy issues or some relationships between elements are not explored. A concept map* may be evident but is clearly underdeveloped, simplistic or may display content accuracy or interpretation issues. Ideas are presented mostly in paragraph form with some listing of ideas, and are generally logical and cohesive, though at times expression or content choices may cause strain on the reader’s accessing of message and may be distracting. Response may be slightly out of word count range** or at the minimum. APA conventions attempted though errors/inaccuracies or gaps may be evident and of a frequency which detracts from the value of the paper.Not Satisfactory #Q1: 0 – 5.0 marksQ2: 0 – 7 marksQ3: 0 – 4 marksQ4: 0 – 4 marks Response has been attempted but answer contains irrelevant or inaccurate information or may display clear and major gaps or imbalance in the information provided. Logic to the response may not be evident or difficult to follow; cohesive elements are lacking that cause the response to read like a list rather than a linked paragraph. Answers may be provided in bullet-list form. A concept map* may be provided but has clear errors or displays a lack of engagement with or understanding of question. APA referencing may not be evident or what has been presented displays clear and frequent issues in application, accuracy or relevance. Word count** may be clearly outside 10% requirement.# A non-attempt at a response or evidence of academic misconduct will gain 0 marks
