13D: How could physical exercise increase the strength of the cardiac muscles?
|Step 9||Discharge Planning|
|Question 14||Discharge planning should form part of a care plan. For the four (4) issues you specified in Step 7, provide a discharge plan that includes: |
|Question 15||In 50 words, describe homeostasis and the relationship between homeostatic imbalance and disease. |
