All Sec�ons

Hi everyone-

I hope everything is going well. This week we will be working on the GI system. There is an
assignment this week as you will be writing a paper on a scenario. I will say that there could be a
few different diagnoses that this could be, however, I am looking more for signs that you choose a
diagnosis and can support that based on your research. And as always, I will be looking for solid
medication recommendations.

Please use the following case for your paper:

DC is a 46-year-old female who presents with a 24-hour history of RUQ pain. She states the pain
started about 1 hour after a large dinner she had with her family. She has had nausea and on
instance of vomiting before presentation.
