Because they also encourage mucous secretions, macrophage activity on pneumococci is decreased while bacterial adhesion to the epithelium is increased. Pneumonia is a condition that aggravates the air sacs in one or both lungs. The air sacs may fill with fluid or pus causing cough with phlegm or pus, fever, chills, and difficulty breathing. Cyanosis occurs as a result of the decrease in gas exchange through the inflamed alveolar membrane and subsequent decline in hemoglobin saturation. One of the most common complications of the flu is a bacterial infection.
As the rash spreads, it can cause blistering of all (Simmons 2007). The mucosa membranes will be affected in the following ways: The eyes will become red, sticky, and soar causing conjunctivitis, The mouth and lips will become red and clustered and the mouth will begin to get ulcers, esophagus will swell which would cause difficulty eating, The upper respiratory track will start closing up due to all the swelling causing and respiratory distress, The genital and urinary track will also gain ulcers, and the GI track will be affected causing severe diarrhea These signs and symptoms are very painful not only the lesions and blistering are occurring on the external part of the body but also in the interior part of the body. Due to these signs and symptoms a patient will become extremely anxious and will feel extreme pain and because of the pain patients will be in a induce coma. The skin and mucosal membranes are the part of the body that gets affected the most but other organs may be affected including liver,
Necrotizing Fasciitis also known as flesh eating bacterial infection is a rapidly progressing fleshing eating disease which destroy muscle, fat and skin tissue. Flesh eating bacteria release toxin and destroy the surrounded tissue. This infection occurs in people with compromised immune system. The bacterias that caused this infection are Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Vibrio vulnificus, Clostridium perfringens, Bacteroides fragilis, Aeromonas hydrophila. The infection usually begins locally by a trauma that allows the bacteria to enter the body.
There are quite a few serious side effects associated with taking Symbicort that you should be aware of. Pneumonia and other lower respiratory tract infections are possible side effects. However, people with COPD have a higher chance of getting pneumonia. 1COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include a change in the amount or color of mucus, fever, experiencing chills, and increased coughing or breathing problems.
A skin infection caused by this bacteria is usually a folliculitis. Symptoms are: itchy rash, bleeding ulcers, headache Ear Swimmer’s ear symptoms are: swelling, ear pain, itching inside the ear, discharge from the ear, difficulty hearing Eye Symptoms of an eye are: inflammation, pus, pain, swelling, redness, impaired vision. Treatments There are two different kinds of antibiotics that you take but sadly some of the bacteria have become antibiotic resistant.
What are the symptoms and signs of cystic fibrosis? Cystic fibrosis causes protean manifestations, but the most common include lung and gastrointestinal symptoms. Respiratory symptoms often involve recurrent cough that eventually becomes persistent and productive of mucus. Patients also typically have wheezing and may complain of shortness of breath.
Influenza A virus is one of the most life threatening viral infection that cause respiratory illness. This virus usually affecting the nose, throat, airways and lungs. It is so contagious that it is easily spread by having contact with the saliva through coughing and sneezing. Influenza A virus can cause mild to severe illness such as fever, headache, sore, sneezing and nausea which accompanied with loss appetite, decreased activity and food intake. Apart of that, this infection is able to cause bronchitis and pneumonia.
If Timmy was punched hard enough, he can have fractures on the cartilage structure of the throat, since the cartilage is flexible and not as strong as the bones. If damage is inflicted, by strong hit for example, on the larynx, it begins to swell. If it swells too much, the flow of air can blocked and you start to suffocate. How would this affect his respiratory system?
According to the Mayo Clinic staff (2014), chronic inflammation can create ulcers in the digestive system, located anywhere from the mouth to the anus, and also the genital area. Inflammation to the lining of the stomach, can lead to scars that can spread throughout the bowel wall completely. Mayo Clinic Staff (2014) state that Crohn’s causes the intestinal wall to become thickened as time goes by, which prevents food from digesting properly due to blockage making it hard for stools to pass by. Mucosa is what protects the stomach, by having Crohn’s, excess mucous is being produced which can make an individual feel as if they are always needing to go to the bathroom.
The digestive system requires the mouth, throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, pancreas, liver and gallbladder. Digestion is originated in the mouth, with the reaction of salivary amylase. Food is them proceed to the esophagus and in the stomach. The chewed food motion by the muscular movement is known as peristalsis, from the mouth to the pharynx, and then transferred to epiglottis that is a canvas over the larynx. The epiglottis is sealed off from the air passageway due to possible choking.
This sickness starts out as flu-like symptoms, but quickly become more serious. Those infected would eventually develop large, blue sores called buboes. Buboes can be located near the groin, armpit, neck, or can very rarely be internal. Over time, victims would develop pneumonic plague, which is an advanced form of the bubonic plague. The pneumonic plague affects the lungs and was usually what killed those who contracted the plague.
Food or bacteria in the intestines, or even the lining of the bowel may cause the uncontrolled inflammation associated with Crohn 's disease. Signs and Symptoms: The symptoms of Crohn 's disease depend on where the disease occurs in the bowel and its severity. These are some symptom examples Chronic diarrhea, often bloody and containing mucus or pus Weight loss Fever Abdominal pain and tenderness Feeling of a mass or fullness in the abdomen Rectal bleeding
Herpes, or Herpes Simplex is a viral infectious disease that results in very dangerous and ridiculous skin infections. The cause of Herpes is the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) and the infections are categorized on the basis of the body part infected by them. Herpes is of two basic types, namely Oral Herpes and Genital Herpes. Oral Herpes is the condition when the infection, in the form of blisters is over the face, inside the mouth, and over the scalp, while in case of Genital Herpes infections are over the genitals as well as on the buttocks. Herpes Simplex Virus is broadly divided into two types, namely Herpes Simplex Virus type-1 and Herpes Simplex Virus type-2 (more commonly referred to as HSV-1 and HSV-2).
Mastoiditis is when the mastoid process becomes infected with bacteria and can destroy the inner portion of the mastoid process (Bontrager, 2014). The mastoid is part of the temporal bone and is located right behind the ear. There are air cells contained in the mastoid and these air cells can get infected with a fluid filled abscess and become a life threatening condition called mastoiditis (Bontrager, 2014). There are a few different causes of mastoiditis but the most common one is by an infection of the middle ear. The infection of the middle ear can spread to the mastoid and cause the mastoid to break down (www.nlm.nih.gov, 2014).
According to the AAP, a shiny nail is just as likely to give you tetanus as a rusty one. Clostridium tetani are the bacteria to blame for the Tetanus disease. The Encyclopedia of Human Diseases and Conditions states that the infection begins when the bacteria spores become active after moving deep within the body. Once the tetanus spores are active, they begin producing a toxin that attaches to the nerves around the area of the wound. The tetanus toxin spreads to the ends of the nerves of the spinal cord where they meet the muscles, resulting in severe muscle spasms powerful enough to tear muscles apart.
