Pathophysiology of osteoporosis

  1. 0
    Hey guys!

    I have to develop a presentation on the pathophysiology of osteoporosis (not nursing care)... Any suggestions?

    How detailed are we talking here? I'm thinking power point presentation highlighting main points of the pathophys and maybe some pictures comparing healthy bones and osteoporosis.

    If it were my project...

    --physiology of normal bone, focusing on the deposition/resorption of the pertinent minerals and the role of estrogen in the process
    --the patho; what goes wrong
    --results of the patho explained in part 2 (comparison pictures on a slide for this would look good)
    --risk factors
    --demographics of patients most likely to get osteoporosis
    --clinical manifestations and most common presentations that lead to a diagnosis
    --primary prevention (how to avoid it in the first place...I've seen research that indicates the best prevention occurs during the teenage years, and I'm sure you can find references.)
    --secondary prevention (screenings, recommended ages, etc.)
    --tertiary prevention (medical treatments and nursing interventions)

    Keep any text on your slides succinct with just "prompts" for you to do the talking.

    Good luck!
