Homework Help: Health

Posted by Aaliesha on Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at 5:36pm.

Does saying:
"increases the userís risk of heart arrhythmia and respiratory failure"
Mean the same thing as:
"Decreased heart and respiratory function"


It doesn't mean the same thing in my book. If it increases the RISK, that means to me that SOME patients may have that experience. If it says "Decreased heart and respiratory function" it means to me that ALL patients will have that experience.

Additionally, the first one says respiratory failure while the second says respiratory function. Failure to me means the patient may quit breathing; function means to me that the patient may have difficulty breathing. I hope this helps. Remember, I'm not an MD. This is my opinion only.

Thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!! You are the best!!!!
