Research paper on CIPA Congenital Insensitivity to Pain and Anhidrosis

paper must (1) include the name of the disease you are presenting. Write out the entire name the first time you refer to it, and then you may use initials, if appropriate, after you have defined their meaning. (2) Describe the disease, (3) its symptoms and (4) its cause(s) in detail, as well as (5) contributing factors (like genetics, smoking, alcohol, drug use, etc.). If there are multiple causes, explain only the top 3. You dont have to cover every possible cause. Make sure to (6) review any normal or abnormal anatomy and physiology necessary for a complete understanding of the illness. You should also address how the illness is (7) diagnosed and (8) treated, including methods of (9) preventing the disease (if that is possible)
If you discuss any particular medication you must describe what it is, what it does and how ithelps. (For instance, instead of saying, Patients with severe allergies can take Benedryl to decrease their symptoms. you should write, Patients with severe Type I hypersensitivities can take an antihistamine such as diphenhydramine {note use of generic drug name}, which blocks histamine receptors and prevents histamine from binding to these receptors and causing allergy symptoms like runny nose, itching eyes and hives.)(10) Address the personal side of the disorder. How is a persons and his or her familys lifetypically affected by this disorder? What does daily life look like (lots of therapies, surgeries, medications, special schooling, food, equipment?) Is survival usually measured in years, weeks, days? Be sure you read at least one (preferably two or more) personal stories (this is the only place where a blog would be a valid source) about a person or family dealing with the disorder to give you perspective. Discuss one personal story in your paper and Power Point presentation. Finally, (11) describe what being a nurse to a patient with this disease would be like. What might your duties be? How might you support this person and his or her family? These two parts should make up about 1/4 to 1/3 (no more than that!) of your paper and presentation. You may weave the personal story into the entire paper/presentation or give it its own section
