Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to apply medical terminology to medical procedures performed in the field of medicine. As future health professionals, visualizing procedures will provide a well-rounded application of medical terms learned in this course. Instructions: Your task is to write a 500-word report on a medical procedure of interest. 1. Choose a medical procedure which you have learned the medical term for in this course. You may choose from any system in the body that we have covered so far. Chapter 15 also has many procedures/treatments to choose from. (I have chosen Appendectomy) 2. Search for a detailed medical procedure video (at least 3 minutes long). Search engines such as YouTube are fine, however, this video should be of the actual procedure being performed. An informational/educational/patient video that are typically animations are disqualified from this assignment and will result in a zero. 3. Describe the following aspects of the medical procedure. a. The medical terminology/vocabulary related to the procedure. b. Discuss how the condition/disease develops to warrant the procedure. c. Describe how the procedure is performed (who performs such procedures, is equipment required, is there pre-operative and post-operative instructions involved for a medically necessary reason?, etc.). d. Explain what the desired outcome is. e. Copy and paste the link of the video you used. Your report may include only information from scientific literature (i.e. peer-reviewed, scientific journal articles). Do not directly quote information from an article but rather summarize in your own words. Make sure to appropriately attribute references by citing in text with the Author, Year (i.e. Smith, 2021), and include a formatted reference citation at the end of the document (MLA or APA format is fine). WebMD, Healthline, Mayoclinic, blogs, etc. are not appropriate sources for this assignment as they are not always peer-reviewed. Remember, plagiarism will result in a zero on the assignment. Submission Format: Your report should follow a standard paragraph format (double spaced, 12pt font, arial or times new roman, and 1in margins). Save your word document to the appropriate CougarView dropbox as your last name_disease. For example, “Early_Chron’s Disease”. Grading: Report Contents 9pts Format 1pts Total 10pts
