Case Study in the Exploration of Homeostasis

Case Study in the Exploration of Homeostasis.

Overview

When you are given a medical case, what is the first thing that you do? You make an observation. Remember, the first step in pathophysiology is to make an observation of the changes in the tissues, and the general appearance or condition of the patient. This assignment will give you practice making observations about the Case Study in the Exploration of Homeostasis: The Body Attempting to Adapt to the Environment section.
