- Immune Attack
You must navigate a nanobot through a 3D environment of blood vessels and connective tissue in an attempt to save an ailing patient by retraining her non-functional immune cells. Along the way, you will learn about the biological processes that enable macrophages and neutrophils – white blood cells – to detect and fight infections.
Infectious diseases : In Context
nfectious Diseases in Context is a comprehensive guide to the increasingly important topic of emerging and infectious diseases and covers the history, politics, and ethical debate related to infectious diseases. The set includes articles on how such diseases impact trade and commerce, travel and the future of industrialized and impoverished nations. (from Google Books)
Fundamentals of Geriatric Medicine next hit: A Case-Based Approach
This useful reference addresses the complexity of disease prevention and presentation in elderly patients, as well as geriatric pharmacology. Medicare and Medicaid, and conditions common to elderly patients, including depression, dementia, and hypertension, are also covered. Numerous graphs and tables are included throughout the book to assist the reader in processing the information presented and incorporating it into clinical practice. This practical guide is an essential resource for all those caring for the elderly.
LearnersTV covers various subjects, including medical and nursing fields. Resources include Video Lectures, Video Courses, Science Animations, Lecture Notes, Lecture Presentations, and an Online Test.
- All Nurses
- Assisted Learning For All
Contains various videos on MedSug, Peds & OB, and Advanced Nursing.
The virtual labs listed below are all produced by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI).
- Virtual Cardiology Lab
"The focus of this lab is on heritable diseases of the heart. You are cast here as a virtual intern to accompany a doctor examining three different patients. Each patient is examined using more than one diagnostic tool, and at each stage, the doctor will invite you to examine the patient yourself and ask for your opinion."
- The Neurophysiology Lab
"Record electrical activities of individual neurons while you deliver mechanical stimulus to the attached skin. Inject fluorescent dyes into the neurons to visualize their morphology. Identify the neurons based on the morphology and the response to stimuli, comparing them to previously published results."
- The Immunology Lab
"Components of the immune system called antibodies are found in the liquid portion of blood and help protect the body from harm. Antibodies can also be used outside the body in a laboratory-based assay to help diagnose disease caused by malfunctions of the immune system or by infections. This virtual laboratory will demonstrate how such a test, termed an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), is carried out and show some of the key experimental problems that may be encountered."
- The Bacterial Identification Lab
"The purpose of the lab is to familiarize you with the science and techniques used to identify different types of bacteria based on their DNA sequences. Not long ago, DNA sequencing was a time-consuming, tedious process. With readily available commercial equipment and kits, it is now routine. The techniques used in this lab are applicable in a wide variety of settings, including scientific research and forensic labs."
- The Transgenic Fly Virtual Lab
"The lab will familiarize you with the science and techniques used to make transgenic flies. Transgenic organisms, which contain DNA that is inserted experimentally, are used to study many biological processes. In this lab, you will create a transgenic fly to study circadian rhythms."
