Crohn 's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease which means it can take place anywhere from the mouth to the anus(GI tract). The most common areas is the ileum and the colon. Crohn 's disease appears when regular bacteria that helps with breakdown of food is misunderstood for something trying to harm the body. Then the antibodies create inflammation in that specific area. Which precedes as a chronic disease that deals with not only inflammation but ulcers created in the tissue.
Due to the sickling of the cells blood vessels may be blocked which causes the hands and/or feet to painfully swell. Swelling only occurs on the back of the hands and feet and moves into the finger and toes. This may be the first sign of sickle cell in infants. The spleen helps filter out abnormal red blood cells and helps fight infections. At times the spleen traps many cells that should be in the bloodstream and it grows large.
A wound is a disorder in the normal anatomical structure and function of living tissue which may be caused by physical, chemical, microbiological or immunological injury. Globally wounds also represent a significant burden on the patients and health care professionals or givers. Wound infection is also significant in that they are the most common nosocomial infection (Orrett, 2002) . Infection of the wound is the successful invasion, and proliferation by one or more organisms anywhere within the body’s sterile tissues and sometimes accompanied with pus formation (Calvin, 1998).Wound infection may result to prolong hospital stay, delay wound healing, increases cost of health care and morbidity in surgical patients (Orrett, 2002).. Wound infection with multiple organisms may even result to multiple organ failure or death of the patient when it becomes chronic.
Be sure to rehydrate with not only water, but salts and minerals to. 4. Bloody Stool Bloody stools are a disconcerting symptom of Crohn’s disease. As the inflammation of the bowels cause ulcers, blood may mix with the stool. If the blood comes from high in the digestive process, the stool may appear black in color.
Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms, such as parasites, bacteria, fungi and viruses, which many may live in our bodies ("Norovirus," n.d.) Symptoms of Norovirus can be diarrhea, stomach pains, nausea, and vomiting. Norovirus can be caught by a sick person, ingesting food or water that has been contaminated or by even touching infected surfaces and it is highly contagious. This infectious disease is of interest to public health as it can involve any individual and rapidly expand to a community and a population if proper precautions are not taken place. It is vital to a public health nurse to assess the individual as well as the public in order to put emphasis on priority interventions at that specific moment. Although there is no vaccination or drug that will help prevent contracting this infectious disease, it is important to the public health nurse to make the population aware of signs and symptoms, preventative measures as well as how others can be on alert in order to prevent the spread of this illness.
Abstract Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections, and complicates a person’s ability to breathe. People with Cystic fibrosis have troubles to breathe because a broken gene causes a thick, growth of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. The mucus blocks the air passage to the lungs, and traps bacteria leading to infections, considerable lung harm, and sooner or later, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, this mucus blocks the deliverance of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients. People with this disease used to have a life expectancy of 6 months back in 1938, but now with the advances of technology and medical treatments, life expectancy is approximately 35
Imagine the world described in fiction novels, disease haunts the world and people live in fear, not knowing whether they will survive another day. Measles, a disease most thought eradicated by its powerful immunization, still causes 16 deaths every hour. Though nearly 84% of the United States has been vaccinated against this, a recent outbreak has caused an eruption of opinions on the topic. Though many may argue that a child’s medical related decisions should be made by the child’s parent or guardian. In actuality, those who are not vaccinated for any contagious disease, pose a threat to the general health of the citizens of United States, as well as bringing back previously eradicated diseases.
One might experience respiratory signs and symptoms caused by the blocking of air passages and lungs with thick mucus such as repeated lung infections (pneumonia or bronchitis), wheezing or shortness of breath. One might also experience digestive signs and symptoms such as those mentioned in the CRTF.INFO.’s website informational article, gastrointestinal tract problems such as congenital Meconium ileus and distal intestinal obstruction syndrome, are caused by the decrease in chlorine and water secretion into the gut. These problems can play a factor in Cystic Fibrosis patient inability to absorb the vital nutrients they need. Also included is the buildup of digestive enzymes and digestion of its own tissues in the pancreas created by the thickening of exocrine secretions that block the pancreatic ducts intestinal blockage which results in bowel movement problems like diarrhea, gas, and abdominal pain. Not only can Cystic Fibrosis affect the pancreas and gastrointestinal tract but also the liver’s secretions.
Inflammation and possible rupture of the esophagus from frequent vomiting. Tooth decay and staining from stomach acids released during frequent vomiting. Chronic irregular bowel movements and constipation as a result of laxative abuse, and Peptic ulcers and pancreatitis. Obliviously both of these diseases will effect one mental and physical
A proper diagnosis is required not only to determine which disease you have, but to determine the stage it is in as well as the possible causes. Eczema is mainly caused by your immune system overacting to an irritant. This is why it is often seen in families with hereditary asthma or allergies. The open, leaking pustules also expose the skin to bacteria. Flair-ups may occur when there is contact with harsh detergents or pets and may also happen when you catch a cold or feel especially stressful.
