Urinary Tract Infections
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by bacteria—most often Escherichia coli. However, certain viruses, fungi, and parasites can also lead to infection. The infection can affect the lower and upper urinary tract, including the urethra, prostate (in males), bladder, ureter, and kidney. Due to the progression of the disease and human anatomy, symptoms present differently among the sexes as well as among age groups. It is important to understand how these factors, as well as others, impact the pathophysiology of UTIs. Advanced practice nurses must have this foundation in order to properly diagnose patients.
Review Chapter 30 in the Huether and McCance text. Identify the pathophysiology of lower and upper urinary tract infections. Consider the similarities and differences between the two types of infections.
Select two of the following patient factors: genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, or behavior. Reflect on how the factors you selected might impact the pathophysiology of the infections, as well as the diagnosis of and treatment for the infections.
By Day 3
Post a description of the pathophysiology of lower and upper urinary tract infections, including their similarities and differences. Then explain how the factors you selected might impact the pathophysiology of the infections, as well as the diagnosis of and treatment for the infections.
The end of the 15th century marked the blossoming of educational institutions and humanistic studies in England. Drawing from the ideas of Lauwerys et al., such a period represented rapid transformation from the medieval tradition to the period of the Renaissance. With the ushering in of the new century, therefore, the humanists produced texts for the study of the Classical languages besides starting a new grammar school type. Some of the prominent humanist scholars of the period include John Colet, Thomas More, William Lily, and Thomas Linacre. These authors prepared excellent texts on the language syntax, parts of speech, and the structure of language, mostly Latin. On the part of Androne, he considers the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century a significant factor in the intellectual and education transformation. The Reformation played a role in deeply changing not only doctrinal, ritualistic, and leadership aspects of the Church but also the political and socio-cultural aspects of society. Nebiolo emphasizes the contribution of the Reformation wars to the intellectual advancement in medicine as he highlights how the improvement of weapons in the battlefield demanded better approaches to treat wounds. And as the education continue develops, as I will analyze in the rest of the paper, the intellectual and education has changed dramatically. The 16th century to the 17th century was marked by the shift from religious pedagogy to the focus on science and math. Back to the end of 15th Century, Lauwerys et al. single out the critical role of Colet in English education as the dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral. In his position, Colet founded the St. Paul’s School that favored the introduction of humanism as well as transforming the old ecclesiastical medieval schools in England. Having traveled to Italy and France a great deal, Colet desired to introduce the fascinating humanistic culture thus going ahead to start a grammar school in 1510. The school was open to approximately 150 scholars who had completed elementary school as well as having an aptitude for study. The school became a lively English humanism center courtesy of the energy and personality of Colet. Besides Colet, Lauwerys et al. also underline the critical role of More, a statesman and distinguished humanist. His interest was in pedagogy hence dedicating part of his Utopia (1516)’s work to it. More was a strong proponent of the Greek language and its new instruction representation in the battle against medieval tradition that was deeply rooted. Lauwerys et al. continue the arguments by asserting the development of new social and political systems in the European countries that had broken away from the Roman Catholic Church in the 16th century. The proposition made is that the newly found countries exhibited the crucial characteristic of the significance of the state in organizing the educational system. Thus, European humanism and the Reformation influenced one another where bo>GET ANSWER
