Does your topic involve a collision between personal obligations and national ones? If so, how so? Note what you feel is the best course of action.

Finally, reference and discuss any professional code of ethics relevant to your topic such as the AMA code for doctors, the ANA code for nurses, or any other pertinent professional code. State whether and how your chosen topic involves any conflicts between professional and familial duties.

Explain the appropriate drug therapy for a patient who presents with MDD and a history of alcohol abuse. Which drugs are contraindicated, if any, and why? Be specific. What is the timeframe that the patient should see resolution of symptoms?

PSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY SHORT ANSWER

As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, you will likely encounter patients who suffer from various mental health disorders. Not surprisingly, ensuring that your patients have the appropriate psychopharmacologic treatments will be essential for their overall health and well-being. The psychopharmacologic treatments you might recommend for patients may have potential impacts on other mental health conditions and, therefore, require additional consideration for positive patient outcomes. For this Assignment, you will review and apply your understanding of psychopharmacologic treatments for patients with multiple mental health disorders.

.Early in the pandemic, researchers suspected that COVID-19 was caused by a virus. What are some ways that they could confirm that a virus, and not bacteria, was responsible for this disease? What type of microscopy would be needed to view SARS-CoV-2? Why? What cell type or organelle would be of an equivalent size to this virus?

Your paper should be formatted in APA style and should include an introduction, conclusion, and a references section.

SARS-CoV-2 Identification

1.Early in the pandemic, researchers suspected that COVID-19 was caused by a virus. What are some ways that they could confirm that a virus, and not bacteria, was responsible for this disease?

2.What type of microscopy would be needed to view SARS-CoV-2? Why? What cell type or organelle would be of an equivalent size to this virus?

3.Based on the Baltimore classification of viruses, which groups would SARS-CoV-2 fall within? What type of genetic material does it contain? Are there any related viruses that cause disease in humans?

SARS-CoV-2 Replication and Genetics

4.Based on your response to question three, draw the replication cycle of SARS-CoV-2.

5.How could SARS-CoV-2 be cultivated? What biological materials would be needed?

6.If viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 are unable to metabolize organic molecules, where do they get the energy to undergo replication?

7.As discussed above, SARS-CoV-2 has an RNA genome. Discuss three differences between RNA and DNA.

8.During the course of the pandemic, several variants of the original SARS-CoV-2 virus have become dominant strains circulating through human populations. Discuss the steps that are involved with the formation of a variant and its increase in prevalence.

COVID-19 Treatments

9.One of the few drugs that have been found to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 is remdesivir. How does this drug inhibit viral replication?

10.Predict which physical or chemical methods of control would be effective against viruses like SARS-CoV-2. List two physical or chemical methods and their mechanism of action.

11.What are at least two suspected reservoirs for SARS-CoV-2, besides humans?

12.How can SARS-CoV-2 be transmitted? For each of the possible transmission mechanisms, discuss whether or not this is a potential source of transmission.

Direct contact
Indirect contact
Vehicle
Vector

13.Why is quarantine an important tool used by public health to reduce the spread of COVID-19?

14.How can herd immunity prevent the spread of viruses within a human population?

15.Some of the first vaccines developed for COVID-19 were RNA vaccines. After the administration of the vaccine, how does this result in an immune response if exposed to the actual virus?

Discuss, from a personal perspective, the significance of oxygen delivery and mechanical ventilation. Why did you choose the method you chose in the scenario you were presented with?

RES 321: Module 2–Discussion

Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) refers to positive pressure ventilation delivered through a noninvasive interface (nasal mask, facemask, or nasal plugs), rather than an invasive interface (endotracheal tube, tracheostomy). Its use has become more common as its benefits are increasingly recognized. Selecting patients for NIV requires careful consideration of its indications and contraindications.

For your initial discussion post, discuss, from a personal perspective, the significance of oxygen delivery and mechanical ventilation. Why did you choose the method you chose in the scenario you were presented with? You must include at least one resource to back up your personal perspective, cite it properly in APA formatting. In your 2 responsive posts to your classmates, offer a different viewpoint or some areas of interest that should also be considered.
