Now I know the ins and outs of diabetes as well as can tell the difference between the symptoms of a type 1 diabetic vs type 2 diabetic. It could also produce a precipitate or distinctive odor. All I knew was that they had to monitor their blood sugar. In this activity, we tested for glucose, starch, protein, and lipids in three different foods. Crime Scene Investigation is a very important skill to have because without the proper procedure important evidence could be missed. This is known as algor mortis.
· Chester Southam conducts experiments to see whether or not injections of HeLa cells could cause cancer. If your opinion has changed, describe how it has changed and why. It would not be possible to determine how a person died or who killed them without Biomedical and Forensic science. In this activity, did a urinalysis. Food Testing with chemical indicators Activity 2. Being able to understand and comprehend the results of this test is important because then you can identify the correct bacteria. Equipment · Computer with Internet access · Laboratory journal · Activity 3.
The cell line is now over 50 years old. This is very useful in forensic science in order to determine the time of death at a crime scene. We created our very own heart box drawings of the heart, which helped reinforce the concept of blood flow. Before doing this activity I had no idea how crime scene investigators determined a time of death. Calorimetry is a good skill to have because it allows you to understand which types of foods and nutrients give you the most energy.
Left ventricular hypertrophy is an enlargement of the heart. It is accessible on the Internet at. Then because of opposites attracting an electric current is produced. An indicator might change the color or temperature of a substance. · HeLa cells were sent into space prior to any astronauts and then were included on the first manned mission.
Oprah might be making a movie about HeLa. The balloon flattens the plaque, opening up the artery again so blood can flow through easily. We also broke down the chemical structures by using 3d models and sketching pictures in our lab books. · Scientists used HeLa cells to better understand the invasiveness and infectiousness of salmonella. We also sketched the structure in our lab books with colors to represent the types of elements, which was helpful in learning about the structure. In the Diagnosing Diabetes lab we learned about the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetics.
The tricuspid has three leaflets. This is used to help determine what a bacteria is in order to treat it in a patient. Discuss your reasons for taking the position you took on the issue with the classmates who are standing under the same sign. Knowing the anatomy of the heart is important to Biomedical science to distinguish what may be wrong in the heart or if nothing is wrong. They include drawing a detailed sketch of a crime scene including a key, legend, and scale, taking high quality photographs with a ruler to show scale, examining the area and marking evidence, interviewing suspects, and collecting evidence.
We had to suggest a new diet and new exercise plans for the patient. Statistics show correct measurements for an object and it takes it deeper by showing the mean, median, mode, and standard deviation. I always thought that cholesterol was only a bad thing because it's known for clogging up blood vessels, so it was interesting to learn more about how cholesterol is actually beneficial to the body. The Biochemistry of Food lab is one that helped me learn about the many different types of macromolecules we consume every day. In the activity, we filled out the body diagram shown on the left by taking data from the other lab groups to have a complete picture of the widespread effects of high blood sugar on the body. Finally, cut the heart almost in half, leaving a flap connecting the two halves.
Access the segment from RadioLab available at. Handling chemicals that can be harmful is important to experience for future labs. Prior to the test patients must fast for 12 hours, and at the beginning of the test their blood is drawn as a control for their baseline blood glucose level and they must drink a concentrated sugar solution. · HeLa cells are used to test potential cancer drugs, such as those used to treat breast cancer and leukemia. Atria are located at the top and receive blood and ventricles are the chambers from which blood leaves the heart.
Doctors must also notify public health services about some illness or injures if its a concern of the public. It is important to Biomedical science because it can show how a person died. We will represent this data using a histogram. · Scientists exposed HeLa cells to M. Who should keep patient information confidential? We also performed insulin and glucose tests to more clearly identify the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. · HeLa cells become the first living cells shipped via postal mail.
