DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS FOR SKIN CONDITIONS

Properly identifying the cause and type of a patient’s skin condition involves a process of elimination known as differential diagnosis. Using this process, a health professional can take a given set of physical abnormalities, vital signs, health assessment findings, and patient descriptions of symptoms, and incrementally narrow them down until one diagnosis is determined as the most likely cause. In this Assignment, you will examine several visual representations of various skin conditions, describe your observations, and use the techniques of differential diagnosis to determine the most likely condition. To prepare: Review the Skin Conditions document provided in this week’s Learning Resources, and select one condition to closely examine for this Assignment. Consider the abnormal physical characteristics you observe in the graphic you selected. How would you describe the characteristics using clinical terminologies? Explore different conditions that could be the cause of the skin abnormalities in the graphics you selected. Consider which of the conditions is most likely to be the correct diagnosis, and why. Download the SOAP Template found in this week’s Learning Resources. To complete: Choose one skin condition graphic (identify by number in your Chief Complaint) to document your assignment in the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) note format, rather than the traditional narrative style. Refer to Chapter 2 of the Sullivan text and the Comprehensive SOAP Template in this week's Learning Resources for guidance. Remember that not all comprehensive SOAP data are included in every patient case. Use clinical terminologies to explain the physical characteristics featured in the graphic. Formulate a differential diagnosis of three to five possible conditions for the skin graphic that you chose. Determine which is most likely to be the correct diagnosis and explain your reasoning using at least 4 different references from current evidence based literature.

The enlightenment in gullivers travels
Jonathan Swift's book, Gulliver's Travels outlines a very peculiar sequence of occurrences that are experienced by a sailor known as Lemuel Gulliver. Throughout these ventures, Gulliver sees himself, on four different occasions, accidently coming across different races of peoples and animals. These races educate him new languages, traditions, lessons, and basic knowledge of their own specific societies. These descriptions are often believed to be Jonathan Swift's way of critiquing The Enlightenment that occurred through the eighteenth-century all over the world. This critique brings a satirical take a look at religious beliefs, morality, equality, and the ability to adapt to other societies. In Gulliver's first trip, he results in the land of Lilliput. Within this land, there are two sets of people, the Lilliputans and the Belfescuans.
