Introduction Surgical site infections (SSIs) are in association with surgeries incisions which may lead to unserious superficial infections and/or serious deep infections within soft tissues or organs in human bodies during 30 days after the surgery. The general reported signs and symptoms pertaining to SSI include fever, pain, redness and pus drainage from the incision (1, 2). According to different studies, the morbidity and mortality of SSI after cardiac surgery is high. However, the reduction of triggering peripheral predisposing factors may lead to decrease the number of infections. There are several parameters which influence the occurrence of SSI including individual and personnel hygiene, surgical methodologies, application of antibiotics, sterilization techniques, blood quality and the type of incisions.
Approximately 70% of patients who suffer a second bleed will die. High transmural pressure ( Transmural pressure = Intravascular pressure- Extravascular pressure ) will predispose to rupture of an aneurysm. To prevent rebleeding it’s important to prevent pressure surges especially at the time of laryngoscopy and intubation. Aim was to maintain trans mural pressure gradient. Cerebral ischemia or Infarction It can occur immediately following SAH, but commonly seen 72 hours after the initial haemorrhage.
GINGIVAL BLEEDING AS PRESENTING SIGN OF ADVANCED HIV/AIDS – A CASE REPORT ABSTRACT: Introduction: Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) caused by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), remains as a significant health care problem since its discovery in 1981. Oral manifestations are considered as the earliest and important indicators of HIV infection. Most of the oral manifestations of HIV are due to immunosuppression and related opportunistic infections. Case presentation: A 43 year old female patient reported to our department with a chief complaint of bleeding gums for 4 days. Based on the history and clinical examination, necessary investigations has been done and she was diagnosed as clinical stage IV HIV disease with pancytopenia, disseminated tuberculosis and tuberculoma brain.

Include information about the disease and its symptoms Pertussis, otherwise known as the whooping cough or the 100-day cough, is a highly contagious bacterial disease in which the patient suffers from severe coughing fits, after which a high pitched “whoop” sound or gasp may occur as a patient breathes. These coughing fits can become so extreme that they can cause the patient to vomit, break ribs, and experience extreme fatigue from the effort of coughing. People suffering from Pertussis may also lose weight and lose control of their bladder. Pertussis in babies under the age of one is extremely dangerous and can be deadly, the baby has little to no cough but instead will have apnea, in which the baby goes through periods of time where they

Taking ibuprofen during the last 3 months of pregnancy may harm the unborn baby. 2 Therefore, ibuprofen should not be taken without a doctor's advice if you are
A rare cause of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) - Mycoplasma pneumonia in a middle aged women Case History A 66-year-old female presented to the Emergency Department of Sri Jayewardenepura General hospital with generalized weakness, faintness, and progressive worsening of difficulty in breathing over a week prior to admission. She also had dry non-productive cough, general malaise with myalgia and a low grade fever. She had consulted a GP and treated with salbutamol and steroid inhalers on outpatient basis. However, since her symptoms became more and more troublesome, she was admitted to the hospital.

According to Buzzle (2012), some common complaints from the patients after the surgery are headache, vomiting, prolonged pain, nausea and more. This is because patients underwent change in their body chemistry during the process which causes the body system to react negatively to the outcome. Another reason is that the process of the surgery requires the use of Anesthesia, which is a temporary state of one’s unconsciousness and this is very risky as Anesthesia is responsible for 34 deaths in United States annually reported by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (Cherney, 2014). The second side-effect of
The varicella vaccine is known to cause the serious side effects in humans with immunodeficiencies, these side effects include infection after vaccination, pneumonia, encephalitis, and meningitis (Mercola, 2011). Equally important, the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine may cause seizures and short term joint
The duration of the disease and the manifestation of the symptoms depend on the time when the Rabies virus reaches the central nervous system of the body of human or animal. Early signs of infection may include tingling sensations, uncontrolled excitement, fever, violent movements, water phobia or paralysis which is followed by unconsciousness. Unfortunately, once the symptoms appear, infection always leads to death. However, vaccine is already available to stop this infection. 8.
