I. INTRODUCTION This Brain hemorrhage is a type of stroke, which occurs due to artery bursting in the brain, causing bleeding in the surrounded tissues. The symptoms of brain hemorrhage are a sudden severe headache, Weakness in an arm or leg, nausea or vomiting, changes in vision, difficulty in speaking or understanding speech, difficulty in
It shows symptoms of loss of motor control, pain and paraesthesia. When there is an inflammation in the white matter or gray matter region of the spinal cord or connecting with brain results myelitis. In myelitis, paralysis and sensory loss can occur due to the damage caused in myelination of the axon. Anterior spinal artery syndrome is a condition that arouse when the blood carrying artery is interrupted. It is common syndrome with symptoms of loss of sensory and motor sensation due to injury.
Diabetic eye disease includes diabetic retinopathy, cataract and glaucoma. What is Diabetic Retinopathy? Diabetic retinopathy is one of the complications of diabetes out of tripathy. Diabetic retinopathy occurs when hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar levels) causes damage to the cells at the back of the eye, known anatomically as, the retina. Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of loss of vision.
There are many causes of cirrhosis including chemicals (such as alcohol, fat, and certain medications), viruses toxic metals (such as iron and copper that accumulate in the liver as a result of genetic diseases). Symptoms • Yellowing of the skin (jaundice) due to the accumulation of bilirubin in the blood • Fatigue • Weakness • Loss of appetite • Itching • Easy bruising from decreased production of blood clotting factors by the diseased liver Causes • Alcohol • Viral Hepatitis B & c Effects • If the diagnosis of liver cirrhosis
With this type of Dementia, the symptoms can be very different due to how badly the blood vessel are damaged after having the stroke. ii. In the scholarly article, Risk Factors for Vascular Dementia and Alzheimer Disease, written by Phillip B Gorelick and publish in October 2004. It mentions that Vascular Dementia have terrible effects on the brain and your cognitive abilities. iii.
Introduction What is tetanus? Tetanus is a disease caused by a bacterial infection, tetanus is caused when the body has come in contact with a bacterium called Clostridium tetani. Tetanus affects the nervous system and causes muscles throughout the body to tighten. The bacterium makes a sort of poison for your body which is called tetanospasmin. This poison blocks the nerve signals from your spinal cord to your muscles.
Symptomatic patients presenting with a palpable volar swelling should be examined for variations in the palmaris longus. In an asymptomatic subject a hypertrophied muscle will obstruct and result in hazy interpretation of radiological assessment of this region. Difficulties in endoscopic procedure and electro myographic studies may also result from such a reversal
As the individual induces vomiting, the lower esophageal sphincter must open to allow the stomach contents move backward through the esophagus. The frequency of this action make the sphincter weak, and the stomach acids begin repeatedly splashing up into the esophagus. Acid reflux can lead to bleeding and scarring of the esophagus. Lastly, many electrolytes such as sodium, chloride, and potassium deplete from the body, causing cardiac arrest, general weakness, and death in the most severe
70% of CP cases have spastic cerebral palsy which is the most common type and is caused by damage to the brain’s motor cortex. Spastic cerebral palsy can affect either one side of the body, commonly known as spastic hemiplegia, or both sides of the body. Spastic diplegia causes stiffness mostly in the legs, the arms may be affected, but not as severely. (Spastic Cerebral Palsy.., n.d, p.1) Both of these types involves stiff movements that are exaggerated, caused by increased muscle tone. It causes difficulty preforming tasks such as getting dressed, walking and handling objects.
Neuromotor Impairments, under Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), is one of the divisions that fall under the category of orthopedic impairment, others being degenerative diseases and musculoskeletal disorder (Gargiulo, 2015, p. 495). Neuromotor impairments are abnormalities of the central nervous system which includes brain and spinal cord or the ability of descending-nervous-tracts from the brain or spinal cord to innervate the muscles of the body. These impairments are congenital (present at or before birth) and severely impair coordination of limb movements, urinary control and proper alignment of the spinal cord and vertebrae. It is however quite possible that individuals with neuromotor impairments have additional impairments
Homogentisic acid is produced in the body from the improper breakdown of tyrosine and phenylalanine in the body. The excess homogentisic acid accumulates in the blood and also in the connective tissues such as cartilage and this happens in a great amount around the joints. The accumulation of blood leads to development of ochronosis, arthritis, heart issues discoloration of the skin in certain areas and many more complications that are seen in patients with AKU. In basis terms AKU is a disorder that results from the improper breakdown of tyrosine and phenylalanine because there is a deficiency of the enzyme HGAO. The gene that encodes the HGD enzyme was cloned in 1996 that is when they opened the era of molecular genetics of AKU.
Elliott Cole Mr. Jason Long, Instructor EMS Academy 20 January 2016 Anaphylactic Shock Anaphylactic shock and Anaphylaxis are serious medical conditions that are a result of insufficient blood flow throughout the body. Anaphylactic shock refers to severe hypersensitivity or an allergic reaction. Causes of Anaphylaxis often include allergic reaction to foods, medications, or insect stings. Anaphylactic shock on the other hand, is a medical emergency which can lead to other conditions such as a lack of oxygen in the body 's tissues (hypoxia), heart attack, cardiac arrest and even severe organ damage. Anaphylactic shock requires immediate medical care and treatment for the symptoms which can worsen rapidly.
