However, regardless of classification, the translocation of pathogens into the peritoneal cavity initiates a cascade of inflammatory responses (Mabewa, Seni, Chalya, Mshana, & Gilyoma, 2015). This response is co-stimulated by mesothelial cells, and characterized by an accumulation of neutrophils and pro-inflammatory cytokines (McGuire et al., 2015). In primary peritonitis the infection occurs, but the source of intra-abdominal infection is unidentified, this is known as spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP). Secondary peritonitis arises from abdominal trauma, organ damage, occurs secondary to medical procedures, and internal leaks affecting the peritoneum. Likewise, tertiary peritonitis is defined as a recurrent or persistent infection after 48 hours of adequate medical management of secondary peritonitis (Henderson, Nguyen, Said, & Nazzal, 2017).

• Too many investigations sometimes aggravate the symptoms of functional bowel disorder Hypothesis: Most of the chronic diarrhoea cases can effectively evaluate and managed in the out-patient department with minimum resources. Objective(s): Primary objective: To evaluate the socio-demographic and clinical characteristics of patients presenting with chronic diarrhoea in the out-patient setting (Ambulatory Care Unit) of Dhaka Hospital of icddr,b. Secondary objective: 1) To identify the predisposing factors of chronic diarrhea. 2) To identify the offending microorganism from stool of chronic diarrhea 3) To evaluate the factors associated with repeated health resource utilization 4) To examine the psychosocial factors and its impact on patients' quality of life. 5) To determine the frequency of organic and functional gastrointestinal symptoms specially IBS among chronic diarrhea patient.
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
The sensitization of peripheral and central neuronal structures amplifies the pain and sustains postoperative pain (International Association for the Study of Pain [IASP], 2011). Acute pain can cause significant physiological and psychological effects. The physiological effects of acute pain involve changes in cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, metabolic, gastrointestinal and hemostasis (Pain Community Center.org, 2013). The patients’ experience of acute pain can be explained by pain theories such as gate control theory (Moayedi & Davis, 2013). Theories of pain There are a number of theories that have been postulated to describe the

Some patients fail to realise that this step is necessary for the doctor to make an accurate diagnosis. Another reason why so many people praise the biopsychosocial model is because it allows the doctor and patient to work as a team when discussing outcome and treatment options. However, this can also be quite difficult for a physician if a patient decides against a treatment option which the doctor feels is best. At the end of the day, doctors are only human and it
A Neuro-Immune Approach In Understanding Acute Kidney Injury Abstract Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a significant health concern. The primary causes of AKI are ischemia, sepsis and nephrotoxicity. Acute kidney injury is mediated by both adaptive and innate immune systems. The role of the nervous system in the activation of immune response and vice- versa is becoming a topic of interest in acute kidney injury. The two systems have a different mode of action.

By taking prescribed medicines not only you, but also your baby will find relief. • Let yourself get distracted- Whenever you experience nausea or an urge to vomit, try and think of something that currently occupies your mind besides the pregnancy.
