Tired Swimmer

Case InformationAnnie is a swimmer for her college. Recently, she has experienceddecreased performance in the pool, resulting in slower timeseven though she hasbeen working hard in practice. Additionally, she has been plagued with blurry vision and eye strain. Her eye strain hasbecome progressively worse over the last month. Any typing done for school makesher fingers acheand feel weak, and sometimes they seem to not function at all. Simple physical activities such as walking a flight of stairs makesher feel extremely fatigued and leavesher gasping for air. On top of these symptoms, she is constantly tired. Due to her symptoms, Annie decided to see her family doctor who referred her to a neurologist. After running a series of test, the neurologist determined that Annies nerve function was normal as there was no evidence for nerve fatigue and the nerve conduction velocity was fine. However, when testing the muscle, it was determined that the muscle response decreased quickly during repeated nerve stimulation. This suggested that muscle response fatigued. Lab tests were performed as well in order to reach a diagnosis. When an edrophonium test was performed, Annie reported feeling much better, but only for a short period of time. Additionally, when looking at Annies blood work, it was determined that there were an abnormally high level of antibodies in her blood. It was alsodiscovered that Annie hasa tumor on her thymus.

Similar to case study #1, you will need to conduct background research in order to complete this assignment, providing appropriate information to support your diagnosis. You must use a minimum of two references, one of which must be your Lt background information. Your reportshould be type-written in 12-point font, double-spaced, and have 1 -inch left and right marginsand 1-inch top and bottom margins.Spelling, grammar and quality of writing will count! All writing should be in the correct tense and in the passive voice (i.e. do not use the terms I or We). You must submit a Word doc or docx file. Other file types will not be accepted. For more information, please be sure to refer to the Guidelines for Case Studies document posted in Canvasand provided to you in class.
2Title: Include a title meaningful to the case study, your name, the course, the section number and the date. Introduction: Using background information gathered on the presented topic, write an introduction for your case study.Dont simply lay out the required information, be sure to tie your introduction together and include proper transitions.You should not be moving through your introduction as if it is a list. In a narrative format, be sure to provide details on the following:1.Briefly describe both the macro and micro (cellular) anatomy of a skeletal muscle. 2.Define muscle fatigue and describe some of the causes of this condition.3.Describe the neuromuscular junction. Be sure to include details regarding the anatomy and physiology of the neuromuscular junction, describing how an action potential and acetycholine are involved in this junction. 4.Describe Electromyography. What does it show?5.Briefly describe the function of antibodies. Additionally, define what antigens areandwhat role they play in antibody production. Diagnosis: Basedon the information provided regarding the patient, please diagnosis her condition. In your diagnosis, please describe how her symptomsand medical tests led you to this conclusion. What specific tests may have been performed in order to diagnose the patient? Be sure to apply the information you learned in lab in order to complete the diagnosis. Prognosis and Medical Treatment Plan: Based on the diagnosis, describe the patients prognosis and any necessary long term medical treatment.
