Describing The Interaction Of The Components Of The Autonomic Nervous System In A Relation To The Stress Response

1260 words - 6 pages

Crisis is an event that is unplanned, unwanted, and dangerous and leads to hard decision making. There are many different types of crisis such as economic crisis, mental health crisis, situational crisis, social crisis, adventitious crisis and many more. Every type of crisis affects people more than we think and know. There is always someone who loses and who gains during a crisis. People who lose are usually the ones who are affected the most such as losing a job, losing a family member or someone close to them, losing their homes and sometimes even their own lives. The people who gain are usually the rich people who prey on the poor and usually gain from making money and the poor’s lives miserable.
Autonomic Nervous System is a control system that controls body function such as heart rate, respiratory rate, salivation, digestion, perspiration, pupillary dilation, sexual arousal, breathing, and swallowing. The ANS is affected by crisis in so many ways because whenever we have something unexpected happen our body reacts to it in so many different ways. Usually crisis is a bad things and our body reacts to it before we can think about it. It makes our blood pressure rise, heart rate rise, make our breathing difficult and basically mess with our whole body function system.
This paper will be presented in three different parts and the first part will begin with the definition of crisis and Autonomic Nervous System, and how the crisis affects the Autonomic Nervous System. Second this paper will explain in detail what the crisis and Autonomic Nervous System. How the Autonomic Nervous System works and all the different consequences of the ANS during a crisis? And at the end will be all the review all the crisis and autonomic nervous system and why is it important to learn how to react to the different types of crisis.

Literature Review

Crisis is an event that is unplanned, unwanted, and dangerous and leads to hard decision making. A crisis is a period of transition in the life of the individual, family or group, presenting individuals with a turning point in their lives, which may be seen as a challenge or a threat, a "make or break" new possibility or risk, a gain or a loss, or both simultaneously (Rosen, 1997). There are many different types of crisis such as economic crisis, mental health crisis, situational crisis, social crisis, adventitious crisis and many more. There are many different definitions of crisis and it all depends on what type of a crisis it is. For example, the sociologist may view crisis as a set of deteriorating social conditions that could potentially disrupt the lives of entire groups of people (Thompson, 2005). The goals of crisis communication are twofold: containment and de-escalation (Harmening, 2014). It’s hard to have control over everything when something bad has happened but people try anyways and sometime it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

It is caused by a genetic mutation on chromosome 4. Because this Huntington gene is a dominant gene, you only need one copy of the defective gene to produce the disorder. In other words, if one parent has the disease, their offspring have a 50% chance of getting that gene and the disease (para. 1

Throughout the body there are many pain receptors. These receptors respond to

During a neuron’s refractory period, potassium is returned to the inside of the cell and sodium goes back to the outside; this put the neuron back to its original resting potential, awaiting another stimulus.

Once a stimulus is present, the receptor, a sensory nerve ending that
