Question 1 (1000 words)

In your answer;
•provide an interpretation of Mary’s clinical presentation with clear links to the underlying pathophysiology

•explain how this response has affected Mary’s presenting signs and symptoms.
Use current literature to support your explanation.
Question 2 (500 words)
Mary’s case study continues on page 9-28. Interpret Mary’s progressing case information, making comment on her current blood pressure reading. Briefly describe how each of the following hormones affect her blood pressure:
•Adrenaline and noradrenaline
•Antidiuretic hormone.
Question 3 (500 words)
