The visual principle of gestalt, pioneered by German Max Wertheimer, is one of great importance in the design world. The statement, “The whole is different than the sum of its parts,” summarizes much of the gestalt theory. In this assignment we’ll explore this statement in detail.

Choose a famous work of art. Look closely at the image and identify several of the individual elements within the image. Imagine the removal of one of these elements. How would the meaning of the image change? Remove a second. With two elements missing, how does the meaning change again?

In a brief 2-3 page analysis, identify the image you chose. Describe the meaning of the image as a whole. Then describe the meaning of the image as the first element is removed and again after the second is removed. What does this exercise show you in terms of how imagery can be used in media?

Jamie is a 3-month-old female who presents with her mother for evaluation of “throwing up.” Mom reports that Jamie has been throwing up pretty much all the time since she was born. Jamie does not seem to be sick. In fact, she drinks her formula vigorously and often acts hungry. Jamie has normal soft brown bowel movements every day and, overall, seems like a happy and contented baby. She smiles readily and does not cry often. Other than the fact that she often throws up after drinking a bottle, she seems to be a very healthy, happy infant. A more precise history suggests that Jamie does not exactly throw up—she does not heave or act unwell—but rather it just seems that almost every time she drinks a bottle she regurgitates a milky substance. Mom thought that she might be allergic to her formula and switched her to a hypoallergenic formula. It didn’t appear to help at all, and now Mom is very concerned.

Cases like these are not uncommon. The mother was concerned and thinking her daughter may have an allergy; she changed to a different formula. However, sometimes babies have immature GI tracts that can lead to physiology reflux as they adapt to normal life outside the uterus. Parents often do not consider this possibility, prompting them to change formulas rather than seeking medical care. As in the case study above, GI alterations can often be difficult to identify because many cause similar symptoms. This same issue also arises with adults—adults may present with symptoms that have various potential causes. When evaluating patients, it is important for the advanced practice nurse to know the types of questions he or she needs to ask to obtain the appropriate information for diagnosis. For this reason, you must have an understanding of common GI disorders such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcer disease (PUD), and gastritis.

To prepare:

  • Review this week’s media presentation on the gastrointestinal system.
  • Review Chapter 33 in the Huether and McCance text. Identify the normal pathophysiology of gastric acid stimulation and production.
  • Review Chapter 35 in the Huether and McCance text. Consider the pathophysiology of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcer disease (PUD), and gastritis. Think about how these disorders are similar and different.
  • Select a patient factor different from the one you selected in this week’s Discussion: genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, or behavior. Consider how the factor you selected might impact the pathophysiology of GERD, PUD, and gastritis. Reflect on how you would diagnose and prescribe treatment of these disorders for a patient based on this factor.
  • Review the “Mind Maps—Dementia, Endocarditis, and Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)” media in the Week 2 Learning Resources. Use the examples in the media as a guide to construct a mind map for gastritis. Consider the epidemiology and clinical presentation of gastritis.

To complete:

Write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:

  • Describe the normal pathophysiology of gastric acid stimulation and production. Explain the changes that occur to gastric acid stimulation and production with GERD, PUD, and gastritis disorders.
  • Explain how the factor you selected might impact the pathophysiology of GERD, PUD, and gastritis. Describe how you would diagnose and prescribe treatment of these disorders for a patient based on the factor you selected.
  • Construct a mind map for gastritis. Include the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation, as well as the diagnosis and treatment you explained in your paper.

Matlab help

Lab7 – The Z-Transform

  • Watch video entitled “Module 7–  Z-Transform in MATLAB”
  • Work the below lab assignment below using MATLAB.
  • Include answers for Problems and include MATLAB coding along with any output plots that support solutions into a Word document entitled “Lab7_StudentID”.  Where your student id is substituted in the file name.
  • Upload file “Lab7_StudentID” 

Activity 1:

A linear time-invariant discrete-time system has transfer function 

 

  • Use Matlab to obtain the poles of the system. Is the system stable? Explain.
  • Matlab tip: You can find the roots of a polynomial by using the roots command. For instance, if you have the polynomial x2 + 4x + 3, then you can find the roots of this polynomial as follows:

    >>roots([1 4 3])

    where the array is the coefficients of the polynomial.

  • Compute the step response. This should be done analytically, but you can use Matlab commands like conv and residue to help you in the calculations.
  • Matlab tip: Besides using conv to look at the response of a system, it can also be used to multiply two polynomials together.  For instance, if you want to know the product (x2 + 4x + 3)(x + 1), you can do the following:

         >>conv([1 4 3],[1 1])

    where the two arrays are the coefficients of the two polynomials.

    The result is

    >> ans = 1     5     7     3 

    Thus, the product of the two polynomials is x3 + 5x2 + 7x + 3.

    Matlab tip: The command residue does the partial fraction expansion of the ratio of two polynomials. In our case, we can obtain Y(z)/z and then use the residue command to do the partial fraction expansion. Then it is relatively easy to obtain y[n] using the tables.

  • Plot the first seven values of the step response. Is the response increasing or decreasing with time? Is this what you would expect, and why?
