Can anyone help me with this case study? i have attached the case study story to this message...thank you for anyone willing to help me! I need it by Wed 4-25-12 at 5:00 pm


At the start
1.) What is responsible for raising Jim's heart and respiratory rate and stimulating sweating just before the race?

2.) Why is the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system active just before the race?

3.) What changes do you think are occurring in the digestive and urinary systems at this time?

4.) What is happening to Jim's blood glucose levels just before the race?

5.) Why is Jim's mouth dry?

One minute in
1.) Rowing full speed is putting new demands on Jim's body. What are these new demands and how does the body respond to them?

2.) What changes in Jim's muscles promote unloading of O2 from hemoglobin for use by the muscle cells?

3.) Why do Jim's muscles feel like they are burning?

4.) What conflict is produced between Jim's need to keep his body cool and his need to remove nitrogenous wastes from his blood? What did he do before the race to help alleviate this conflict?

1.) What is responsible for raising Jim's heart and respiratory rate and stimulating sweating just before the race?

2.) Why is the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system active just before the race?

3.) What changes do you think are occurring in the digestive and urinary systems at this time?

4.) What is happening to Jim's blood glucose levels just before the race?

5.) Why is Jim's mouth dry?

#1. What is responsible for raising Jim's heart and respiratory rate and stimulating sweat just before the race?

When the race is almost ready to begin, Jim's nervous system sends signals to his heart causing his respitory rate to increase. Since Jim's heart and respiratory rate increases this causes him to breath more rapidly and causes him to sweat to maintain a normal body temperature.

#2. Why is the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system active just before the race?

When Jim is about to start the race he feels the pressure and the stress of having to do his best which makes his autonoic nervous system more active due to the stresses he is facing.

#3. What changes do you think are occurring in the digestive and urinary system at this time?

When Jim's stress level rises his digstive system feedback starts to occur. Changes in Jim's urinary system are occuring due to him sweating. Since Jim body is stressed because of the race, his Kidney are working harder. Kidneys play a major role in the urinary system which control alot of your body functions such as electrolytes, water, and acid-base balances in the body.

#4. What is happening to Jim's blood glucose levels just before the race?

Since Jim has been constantly sweating, this causes dehydration at the beginning of the race. Jim has been sweating perfusley which caused his glucose level to drop.

#5. Why is Jim's mouth dry?

At the start of the race Jim has all different changes happening to his body, one of these changes was his mouth being dry. The reason Jim'uscles are making.s mouth was excessivly dry was because his salivary glands have started to slow down its production of saliva in the mouth, at some points not secreting any slivia at all.

#1. Rowing full speed is putting new demands on Jim's body. What are these new demands and how does the body respond to them?

Now that Jim is at full speed he has put new demands on his body which cause his heart rate to jump from 65bmp to 201bmp and his temperatue has also rose to 99.5 but after two minutes of intense activity his heart rate is now at 180 and his temperature is at 100. Jims body has slowed down and was giving 80% body effort while ignoring the pain.

#2. What changes in Jim's muscles promote unloading of O2 from hemoglobin for use by the muscles cells?

When Jim's muscels and cells are feeling the burning sensation this is caused by the O2 from hemoglobin when these cells are being used excessivly. He used up his hemoglobin by vigorously rowing the boat up to its maximum speed. This causes the the muscles to use his oxygen within the cells so the body could maintain homeostasis.

#3. why do Jim's muscles feel like they are burning?

The reason that Jim's muscles are feeling the burning sensation is beacuse they are experiecing sensory info. from his nervous system. This feeling is due to the increase of activity and fatigue occuring because he over exerted his body. Also his body has been using his glycogen within the cells which make lactic acid which causes the burn jim is experiencing.

#4. What conflict is produced between Jim's need to keep his body cool and his need to remove nitrogenous wastes from his blood? What did he do before the race to help alleviate this conflict?

The conflict between keeping his body cool and his need to remove nitrogenous wastes is hydration vs. dehydation. Jim tried to make the conflict easier before the race when he made sure he was well hydrated and stayed calm and relaxed which help to keep his heart rate and respitory rate low.

Ok here is the rest of the questions, any help will be appreciated.
THANK YOU.

At the finish
 
11. Jim has stopped rowing and his muscles are now at rest.  Why are his heart and breathing rates still so high?
 
12. What is the function of sweating, and why is he sweating more now than during the race?

 13. What changes have occurred to his blood chemistry since the start of the race, and why? Think about glucose levels, pH, lactate levels, creatinine levels, and temperature.
 
Back at the dock
 
14. What changes have occurred in the last 10 minutes to allow Jim's heart and respiratory rates to come down?
 
15. Why is Jim four pounds lighter than at the start of the race?  What effects do you think this had on his endocrine system and urinary system?
 
16. Why did Jim only take sips of water after the race? What could happen if he drank as much as he wanted to?
 
17. Would Jim be concerned about getting a cold or flu after this intense exercise?  Explain.

Ok, and also these questions from the same case study:
At the start
1.  What affects will this have on the body organ systems (describe them specifically)?   

One minute in

4.   What would be the main function of Jim’s skeletal system, while he is rowing?

5.  Jim’s glucose level in his muscles may be getting depleted, during this time.  Why would it be depleted, and what is it specifically being used for?  What are the different ways the body is able to obtain more glucose?

7.  What do the muscles use the O2 for?  What stage of cellular respiration directly uses O2?

8.  Explain in detail, and explain the process why Jim's muscles feel like they are burning?

9.  Jim’s muscles are burning, how is that affecting his acid/base balance?  In what ways would the body be compensating for this?   

THANK YOU.

At the Finish Line:

#1. Jim has stopped rowing and his muscles are now at rest. Why are his heart and breathing rates still so high?
When Jim pushed his body to do alot of work, it was just returning to normal state at the finish line. His breathing was still high because he was still in the recovery period for his body.Oxygen was still needed to meet the heart rate.
#2. Why is he sweating more now than during the race?
Jim is now sweating more because of his high body heart and his body need to sweat to cool so his body will return to normal state.
#3. What changes have occurred to his blood chemistry since the start of the race?
Since Jim's muscles have been working hard there has been an increase of blood flow to them. The activity has caused an reduction in the amount of blood glucose as its changing over to energy. The carbon dioxide level will increase because of the production of glucose.
Back at the Dock:
#1. What changes have occurred in the last ten minutes to allow Jim's heart and respiratory rates to come down?
The reason his heart and respitory rate has came down is because of the positive feedback loop. This loop helps to return the body to original state which cause his rates to decrease.
#2. Why is Jim four pounds lighter than at the start of the race?
The reason Jim is lighter now is because of dehydration. He had rehydrated himself before the race and during the race jims body had many different chemical reactions within his body. Since he had water in his body he sweated more of the water out in his sweat which cause weight loss.
#3.What effect has this water loss had on his endocrine system?
Jim has lost water which caused a loss of sodium which resulted in jim being dehyrated.
#4. why did Jim only take sips of water after the race? what could happen if he drank as much as he wanted to?
Since Jim was dehyrated after the race he could only drink water to help restore the electrolytes into his cells, if he would have not taken little by little he could have muscles cramping. Also the small sips allowed his body to adjust to his body's state of dehydration.

Can you PLEASE answer the questions for At the half way mark? Here are the two questions:

1) Since the end of the 1st minute, Jim has decreased the demands his muscles are making. How has he done this? And WHY has he done this?

2) What are the changes in his conditions as a result?

Need help with this question. Recall that Jim could see boats on either side of him. Trace the image of those boats to perception. (Include all focusing, transduction, transmission, and perception processes and structures)
