Assignment: Blood Disorders
· Resources: Ch. 8 of Human Diseases, the WebMD® Web site at http://www.webmd.com,
and the drkoop® Web site at http://www.drkoop.com
· Due Date: Day 7 [Individual] forum
· Read each of the following three scenarios:
o Amy, a 4-year-old Caucasian female, has been complaining of being tired all the
time. She is pale and a picky eater. Her mother is a single mom with a small budget
to feed a large family. Amy only eats pasta, breads, and hot dogs, and drinks only
artificial fruit punch.
o Marcus is a 5-year-old African-American male who has just moved to New York City,
and is visiting his new pediatrician for a kindergarten physical. His mom tells the
nurse that she carries the “trait” and wants Marcus screened for it.
o Richard has noted over the past several weeks that he is having more bruises, or
ecchymosis, all over his body. After coughing this morning, he noticed tiny red marks
all around his eyes.
