Unit 5: Infectious Disease
The medical examiner who performed Anna Garcia’s autopsy pulled copies of Anna’s medical records before proceeding with the autopsy. Interestingly, the medical examiner discovered that Anna had been hospitalized just ten days prior to her death for a sickle cell crisis and subsequently was treated for an infection that was most likely acquired during her hospital stay. The medical examiner then noted that a page of the medical history is missing. Throughout this lesson, students will play the role of medical detectives in order to investigate Anna’s mystery infection. Ultimately, they will need to identify the exact pathogen, or infectious agent, responsible for Anna’s illness.
