HBS Project 2.2.5 Grand Rounds Neurology

Grand Rounds Gangnam

Grand rounds are meetings for medical education and inpatient care, to discuss interesting or difficult medical problems and treatment of a particular patient to an audience consisting of doctors, residents, and medical students.

HBS Act 2.2.2 Secret to Signals. What is a neuron? vs How is a neuron specialized?

  • main function is to insulate the axons (the long slender projection of a nerve cell that conducts electrical impulses away from the neuron's cell body or soma) almost exclusively in the central nervous system in the higher vertebrates
  • The multiple layers of wrapping of oligodendrocytes around the axons of the central nervous system forms the mylein sheath
  • The “feet” of a single oligodendrocyte can extend its processes to 50 axons, wrapping approximately 1 μm of myelin sheath around each axon
  • can form a segment of myelin for several adjacent axons
Schwann cells
  • perform a similar function in the peripheral nervous system
  • can wrap around only one axon
  • there are two types: myelinating and nonmyelinating

PBS 2.1.2 Research how insulin controls glucose uptake by cells

CW: Research how insulin controls glucose uptake by cells:
ie., how insulin allows glucose to enter cell

  1. Make a simple drawing (cartoon) of how a signal molecule may bind to a receptor protein.
  2. Research how insulin signals a cell to take in glucose from the blood. Use the Internet or other resources to find information. Take notes in your journal. Record all the information from each of the sources you use so you can properly document or cite it later. Make note of sources with especially good diagrams or pictures.
  3. Choose 1-2 good sources of information that include diagrams, pictures and/ or interactive diagrams from the resources you examined. Properly document each of these sources, and under each documented source write an explanation of why it is a legitimate and reliable source of information about insulin and its effects on cells. Use additional paper if necessary.
You and your partner build 3D models based on your drawings and research.

An excellent resource is this website in here.

PBS Act 2.1.1 GTT PreLab Glucose Tolerance Test

Glucose tolerance test
The glucose tolerance test is a lab test to check how your body breaks down sugar.  The most common glucose tolerance test is the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).
Before the test begins, a sample of blood will be taken.   You will then be asked to drink a liquid containing a certain amount of glucose (usually 75 grams). Your blood will be taken again every 30 to 60 minutes after you drink the solution.
The test takes up to 3 hours.

PBS 1.3.1 Autopsy

Section 501.1
Coroners may find the following definition of forensic pathology useful to their work. Forensic pathology isthe branch of medical practice that produces evidence useful in the criminal justice administration, public health and public safety. Under this definition are three key elements: Cause of Death, Manner of Death and Mechanism of Death.
The cause of death related to the disease, injury or abnormality that alone or together in some combination initiates the physical and biological malfunctions that eventually leads to death. The cause of death can be thought of in terms of underlying or immediate cause of death. For example, a driver of an automobile dies in a single vehicle accident. The autopsy discloses that the driver had a blood alcohol level of 0.25 and the driver's heart had been pierced by a metal rod. The underlying cause of death would be penetrating trauma to the chest, the mechanism of death would be heart failure due to the penetrating metal rod, and acute alcohol intoxication would be listed as a contributing factor.
The manner of death pertains to the way the death occurred. Social relationships and personal causation are two elements involved in determining manner of death. Examples are the self-inflicted injuries of a suicide victim and the fatal injuries incurred as a result of an accidental fire in a home. The usual classifications of death are: natural, accident, suicide, homicide or undetermined.

The mechanism of death refers to the process of death, in which failure of one or more vital organs due to injury, disease or natural events. For example, the mechanism of death for many diabetics is kidney failure. Other body organs, such as the liver, are adversely affected by kidney failure and death may follow. The actual cause of death may be due to heart or liver failure, but the diabetes was responsible for initiating the death process.

Caution: The pathologist will, or may, offer both a cause and manner of death in his/her report of the post- mortem. However, the coroner is not bound by this report in determining manner of death. Often you will have additional information that was gathered at the death scene. This additional information and the results of the autopsy will often allow you to reach a more accurate determination of the manner of death.

Note: If there is a disagreement with the findings of the pathologist, the coroner and pathologist should strive to arrive at a consensual view. This is necessary, as such a disagreement could prove embarrassing to one or both parties, if it is brought out in court at a later date.

Note: The mechanism of death should not be noted on the death certificate. (It is unnecessary and could create
confusion or doubt in non-medical personnel.)
