  • This lesson on Obesity, its causes, consequences and cures will cover the following seven lessons:
  • Lesson 1: Introduction to obesity Define what is obesity and how it affects the body Explain the causes and risk factors of obesity Describe the signs and symptoms of obesity Review the anatomy and physiology of the digestive and metabolic systems Image: [Pulmonary Embolism Anatomy] Video: [DVT and Pulmonary Embolism | Nucleus Health]
  • Lesson 2: Diagnosis of obesity Discuss the diagnostic tests and procedures for obesity, such as body mass index, waist circumference, skinfold thickness, bioelectrical impedance, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, and computed tomography Interpret the results and findings of the diagnostic tests and procedures Identify the limitations and complications of the diagnostic tests and procedures Image: [Selective focus of CT Chest or Lung 3D rendering image front view] Video: [Obesity Diagnosis and Treatment | Nucleus Health]
  • Lesson 3: Treatment of obesity Outline the goals and principles of treatment for obesity Compare and contrast the different types of treatment for obesity, such as lifestyle modification, pharmacotherapy, bariatric surgery, and behavioral therapy Evaluate the indications, contraindications, benefits, risks, and side effects of each type of treatment Image: [Obesity Treatment] Video: [Obesity Treatment Options | Nucleus Health]
  • Lesson 4: Prevention of obesity Analyze the primary and secondary prevention strategies for obesity Recommend the appropriate prevention measures for different populations and settings, such as healthy eating, physical activity, stress management, sleep hygiene, and environmental changes Assess the effectiveness and safety of the prevention measures Image: [Preventing Obesity] Video: [Preventing Obesity | Nucleus Health]

  • Lesson 6: Prognosis of obesity Estimate the short-term and long-term mortality and morbidity rates of obesity based on various factors, such as age, sex, ethnicity, comorbidities, severity of obesity, type of treatment, and presence of complications Apply the prognostic tools and models for obesity, such as Obesity Surgery Mortality Risk Score (OS-MRS), Edmonton Obesity Staging System (EOSS), and Obesity-related Health Risk (OHR) score Discuss the implications and limitations of the prognostic tools and models Image: [Prognosis of Obesity] Video: [Obesity Prognosis | Nucleus Health]
  • Lesson 7: Case studies of obesity Review and analyze real-life case scenarios of patients with obesity from different backgrounds and contexts Apply the knowledge and skills learned from the previous lessons to each case scenario Demonstrate critical thinking, clinical reasoning, decision making, communication, collaboration, and ethical principles in each case scenario Image: [Case Studies of Obesity] Video: [Obesity Case Studies | Nucleus Health]
