This is, essentially, the opposite effect of what happens when there is weight bearing activity as previously discussed - when there is a decrease in weight bearing activity/the stress of gravity on the body, osteoclasts break down the bone where it is not needed, releasing calcium ions into the blood so that they may be used where they are, in fact, needed (Kosalanan, 2005). 9. What risk factors does Margaret have for osteoporosis? The risk factors that Margaret has for osteoporosis are that she is an elderly female, has gone through menopause, she is a long term smoker, and she is on propranolol, and she has lead a rather sedentary life.

1.1) Give examples of possible multiple conditions and/or disabilities that individuals may have. Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid Arthritis is a disease that causes damage to joints, organs, and bodily systems due to inflammation of joint tissues. While inflammation is usually a response by a person’s immune system to disease or infection, the immune system of a Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferer attacks the person’s healthy joints, causing pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints, and a host of other symptoms. As the disease progresses, it causes difficulty in pursuing normal activities, even to the extent of interfering with walking, standing, getting dressed, personal grooming, and household chores. Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis is a crippling condition that often prevents people from working within five to ten years of diagnosis.

Running Head: Congestive Heart Failure Kimberly A McCarthy Week 5 Assignment 2 Pathophysiology Congestive Heart Failure September 24, 2014 Running Head: Congestive Heart Failure Congestive Heart Failure Congestive Heart Failure is when the heart is not properly doing its primary function, which is pumping blood efficiently through all four chambers of the heart. The heart is easily recognized as a “pump.” Many people get this confused and assume that Congestive heart failure is when the heart just stops working all together which is false. When the heart is not properly pumping blood, tissues and other body organs are not receiving the amount of blood and oxygen required to properly function. Congestive heart failure will
