Help Needed Asap Please!

  1. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME? I HAVE A PROJECT DUE ON JANUARY 10 ON ANY ONE OF THESE SUBJECTS: CARDIAC NSG, RESPIRATORY DISORDERS, PAIN, INFECTION/INFLAMMATION, LAB VALUES, HEMATOLOGICAL/BLOOD DISORDERS, FLUID AND ELECTROLYTE DISORDERS, ACID BASE IMBALANCE, PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISORDERS, AND PERIOPERATIVE NSG. I HAVE TO PREPARE A 5 MINUTE VISUAL OR AUDITORY PRESENTATION.

    I WAS THINKING OF DOING A PULMONARY EDEMA (IN THE RESPIRATORY DISORDERS CATEGORY), BUT I GOT A PUMP, AND BALLOON WITH WATER, AND WHEN I TRIED IT, IT DIDN'T WORK. ALMOST HALF MY GRADE GOES TO CREATIVITY AND UNIQUENESS, SO PLEASE HELP ME WITH ANY SUGGESTIONS! THANKS

    The heart is a pump.
    I always try to find out what my patients do or did for a living, and then work off that....eg: plumber et al.
    Cardiomyopathy is always well exampled by an overstretched rubber band or elastic that has lost it's rebound. Just ideas I use for pts to prompt some thoughts for you............

    These two sites have a bunch of cardiac related pics that I've used in presentations before.

    SORRY TO BOTHER YOU AGAIN BUT, I WAS READING ABOUT CARDIOMYOPATHY, AND IT'S A CONDITION IN WHICH THE HEART IS ABNORMALLY ENLARGED, THICKENED, OR STIFFENED.

    HERE'S MY PLAN:
    I WILL START BY DESCRIBING THE DISEASE (THAT SHOULD TAKE 2 MINUTES). THEN I WILL GET A NORMAL RUBBER BAND, AND A WORN OUT ONE, AND SHOW THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM WHEN STRETCHED (I THINK THE WORN OUT ONE WILL BREAK FASTER), AND THEN I'LL SHOW PICTURES OF THE A NORMAL HEART AND WITH NORMAL BLOOD FLOW, AND A HEART WITH THIS CONDITION AND HOW LESS BLOOD FLOWS THROUGH IT. I THINK THAT WHOLE PRESENTATION WILL BE 5 MINUTES AND LEAVE A LASTING IMPRESSION.

    DO YOU THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA?
