"Read the “Hypertension, Pediatrics” case scenario found on page 199 in your course textbook. Based on the scenario, imagine that you are a researcher involved with this study. Compose a mock journal submission paper based on the scenario. Please include the following sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Methods; (3) Results; and (4) Discussion. You do not need to include an abstract for this assignment. Your Assignment should be 3-5 pages in length, not including the title and reference pages,,,,Th scenario on page 199 was,The etiology of high blood pressure remains a subject of active investigation. One widely accepted hypothesis is that excessive sodium intake adversely affects blood-pressure outcomes. To explore this hypothesis, an experiment was set up to measure responsiveness to the taste of salt and to relate the responsiveness to blood-pressure level. The protocol used involved giving 3-day-old infants in the newborn nursery a drop of various solutions, thus eliciting the sucking response and noting the vigor with which they sucked—denoted by MSB (mean number of sucks per burst of sucking). The content of the solution was changed over 10 consecutive periods: (1) water, (2) water, (3) 0.1 molar salt + water, (4) 0.1 molar salt + water, (5) water, (6) water, (7) 0.3 molar salt + water, (8) 0.3 molar salt + water, (9) water, (10) water. In addition, as a control, the response of the baby to the taste of sugar was also measured after the salt-taste protocol was completed. In this experiment, the sucking response was measured over five different periods with the following stimuli: (1) nonnutritive sucking, that is, a pure sucking response was elicited without using any external substance; (2) water; (3) 5% sucrose + water; (4) 15% sucrose + water; (5) nonnutritive sucking. The data for the first 100 infants in the study are given in Data Set INFANTBP.DAT, on the Companion Website. The format of the data is given in Data Set INFANTBP.DOC, on the Companion Website. Construct a variable measuring the response to salt. For example, one possibility is to compute the average MSB for trials 3 and 4 ? average MSB for trials 1 and 2 = average MSB when the solution was 0.1 molar salt + water – average MSB when the solution was water." ," ,
