Circulatory System

Postby Stef74 » Fri Oct 21, 2005 11:20 am

Hi there,
I need to do an essay on the effects of 'something' on the circulatory system. There are a lot of us in class and I wondered if anyone had a good idea as to what I should choose as my 'something' so that it may be a little different to the others. A lot of people are choosing smoking and stress and the really obvious ones. Any ideas to would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like you're just doing an essay and not experimenting. A good idea would be to search online to see what sources are available.

Hi again

Its actually Degree Foundation level. No I'm not recquired to do any experiments its pure discussion. I have looked on the internet but extreme heat or cold was as original as I could find. I would really like it to be about something a little more diverse.

you find that also CORONARY HEART DISEASE is a major problem, so I will suggest that you write about it because it covers many topics and it can earn you more marks and credits. For topics I will keep warching just ask for help or contact me at bpitseyagae@yahoo.com

...or if you want, you can stick with the extreme heat/cold topic and talk about the differences between the old, midlife, young, and infants/newborns. There was a story of how an infant went out into -5 degree weather in a blizzard and they thought the baby was dead. They rushed it to a hospital and stuck it in a hot bath and the baby came back to life, and literally defrosted from the heat, and the baby was perfectly fine. I guess it was some form of Cryostasis that is yet to be discovered, but because of this, they made a huge discovery step. Youu could use that, that would be a great topic to go off of! :D

I dont think we want to go there... but what I fiind interesting is that people say if you put a bag of ice or something around your neck that your whole body cools off yet when I do it, it doesn't happen :?

This is very interesting, and you should treat it as something fun, as you'll become more focused and therefore get more marks.
I think something to do with heart disease, a heart attack infact, varicose veins - a big one, to do with clots. hypertension, all very interesting.
