The nurse should first help the patient get into bed. He/ she should then call the nurse manager and alert the administration of what has happened. Later an arrangement should be done to examine the client to make sure there are no injuries that may harm the client.

Question
How does the human immune system fight infection
Solution 1


The human immune system  has two divisions or arms  that help fight off infection namely the innate or non - specific immunity and the acquired immune system also called  specific immunity.

The non - specific immunity arm is the first line of defense against pathogens. It incorporates physical barriers which include the skin and mucous membranes. Pathogens usually cannot penetrate into the body unless the skin is broken. The mucus membranes trap foreign particles using the mucus they secrete and the intruders are expelled from the body.

The specific immunity arm is the second line of defense and attacks pathogens that have breached the first line of defense.  It works by making memory cells, special lymphocytes  that store memory of a pathogen when  encountered for the first time. If the same type of pathogen  invades the body a second time, the memory cells remember it and trigger a more rapid and vigorous response specific to that pathogen, neutralizing it through antibody production and destroying it.

Question
Which part of the scientific method is represented by the data in th table?
Solution 1
That would be the analysis phase. After testing your hypothesis, recording your results and what happened during the experiment is usually represented by data in tables. I hope this answered your question?
Question
According to the food plate, which of these food groups should make up the largest portion of your diet? a. dairy b. protein c. grains?
Solution 1
The question is asking to choose among the following choices that state the food group should make up the largest potion of the diet, base on my research and further analysis, I would say that the answer would be letter c. grains. I hope you are satisfied with my answer and feel free to ask for more 
Solution 2
The correct answer for the above question is C. Grains 

According to the food plate, grains are the food groups that should make the largest portion of your diet. 

Grains include foods from wheat, barley, oats, corn meals or any other grain. According to the food plate at least half of the grains kids take each day is supposed to be whole grains, since whole grains have dietary fiber which creates a feeling of fullness and also prevents and treats constipation. A diet rich in whole grains decreases the chances of getting heart disease and diabetes. 
Question
When you see the glycerinated muscle fibers shorten, what do you think is actually happening in the muscle cells? think about what you just saw under the microscope?
Solution 1
I believe that you are supposed to notice that the striations in the contracted muscle fibers are much closer together than the striations in the uncontracted muscle. Therefore, it would appear that somehow the striated parts of the muscle are being pulled closer together somehow. Glycerinated muscle retains the organized structural array of myosin thick filaments and actin thin filaments, actin associated proteins like troponin and tropomyosin which regulate contraction, and the functional capacity for contraction.
Solution 2

Answer:

Within the muscle cells, the space between the fibers is shortening and they begin to contract.

Question
Refers to the area(s) in in the midportion of the shafts of long bones where bone cells are formed so that the cartilage-model bones of the fetal skeleton begin ossifying, from the center outward, to form bone shafts.
Solution 1
The area wherein bone cells (of long bones) are formed from cartilage of the fetal skeleton is called the primary ossification center. The primary ossification center appears primarily during embryonic growth and it occurs in the diaphysis or the central area of long bones. 
Question
Red blood cells contain approximately a 2% concentration of solutes. a red blood cell is placed into a solution that contains a 4% concentration of solutes to which the cell is not permeable. what will happen to the red blood cell?
Solution 1
I believe that the cells will decrease in size as water flows out of it. The red blood cell is hypotonic to the the solution while the solution is hypertonic, therefore, the blood cells losses water osmotically and decrease in size. Water moves from inside the cell to the outside by osmosis. The end result is the shrinking of the red blood cells.
Question
How many different ways can homologous recombination cause gene conversion?
Solution 1
Gene conversion is the process by which one DNA sequence replaces a homologous sequence such that the sequences become identical after the conversion event.
Question
Protists are a diverse group of organisms that are similar in
Solution 1
The multiple choices for the questions are;
A) rRNA sequences
B) Metabolic type
C) Motility
D) Ecology
E) None of the above
The answer would be E none of the above.
Protists are eukaryotes, such that their cells have a nucleus membrane and other membrane-bound organelles. Most of them are single-celled. They differ in all other features, they are neither plants, nor fungi, nor animals.

Question
Rna contains the nitrogenous base ________ instead of ________, which is found only in dna. a deoxyribose sugar... a ribose sugar uracil... thymine uracil... guanine thymine... uracil
Solution 1
Both RNA and DNA are nucleic acids, and both are composed of nucleotides. The nucleotides are namely: Adenine, guanine, cytosine, thymine, and uracil. Adenine is always paired with thymine or uracil; guanine is always paired with cytosine. RNA contains the nitrogenous base uracil rather than thymine. DNA contains the nitrogenous base thymine rather than uracil.
