Tetanus Muscular System Tetanus, also known as lockjaw, is a serious bacterial infection called Clostridium tetani, that causes serious painful muscle spasms and can lead to death. Clostridium tetani spores are able to for long periods outside of the body. These spores found mainly in animal feces and contaminated soil, but they can survive anywhere. The bacteria enters the body through puncture wounds. Tetanus can enter the body by; animal bites, skin burns, body piercing and tattoos done with unsterile tools, injection of drugs with contaminated needles, abrasion and laceration, and even circumcision.
The skin around the sores becomes dry and flakey and sometimes even becomes ulcerated like the skin was eaten away (Carson-Dewitt). Along with the signs, the symptom of itchiness almost always appears. The itchiness contributes to the spreading because the patient will feel the urge to scratch the sore, and when the bacteria get under the nails it spreads to whatever else the patient touches. A patient can also develop a fever, pain, and swelling if the infection spreads and worsens ( Scholten). If the Impetigo is left untreated it has the potential to worsen and develop into: ecthyma, black scabs around ulcers; glomerulonephritis, a kidney disease; osteomyelitis, a bone infection;sepsis, a systemic infection; scarlet fever; streptococcal disease or pneumonia (Carson De-Witt, Scholten).
Meth does a lot of damage to your body, for example a destructive lifestyle, poor hygiene, sugary food and drinks, and lack of sleep. How meth can give you a destructive lifestyle is it starts with an “up” and is followed by an unpleasant “down” which can be avoided by taking more of the drug. The longer the “up” is maintained, the worse the “down” feels, and the harder the addict will go to take the drug just so they can keep their high. Meth gives you poor hygiene because it will eventually give you periodontal disease and you will start to develop plaque on your teeth and gum line. Now how sugary foods and drinks damages your body is once you have so much plaque built up it will soon cause tooth decay because of the amount of acid those sugary food and drinks have in them.
They either make hearts rates slower or faster depending on if it is a stimulant or depressant. As shown in the data below, Pau D’Arco has varying results. Upon further research, Pau D’Arco is actually a stimulant proving the hypothesis wrong. It also could have been due to the worm dying in between tests, but it is impossible to prove that theory right. The data collected may not be the most reliable since the two test had two different worms, and that might cause two different reactions to the chemicals.
Another reason why symptoms are not the best way to determine the infection is that it is often confused with gonorrhea as the symptoms are very much alike. Asymptomatic nature of chlamydia makes it difficult to estimate how long a person remains infectious and this period is commonly believed to last until the full recovery. The symptoms of chlamydia appear between 1 and 3 weeks after the
This is a bacteria that will cause you to have an infection. The bacteria is called staph. It 's a Superbug because the normal antibiotics that are used to treat the infection will not work with this type of infection. If you are badly infected or the infection gets into your bloodstream then that is when you are treated with medication through IV. You are given the medicine Via IV because the medication goes through your veins, so you get the medication into your bloodstream quickly.
This bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, can have a big effect to those who have cancer, since they have a low immune system. Like any other bacteria, this infection does not only have specific symptoms, but multiple regarding the place it comes in contact with. When it is in contact with a wound green, covered pus can be noticeable. This can have a severely impact to the person causing pneumonia. Overall, researchers have found similar effects to other places it comes in contact with, some being fever, nausea, and fatigue.
If not caught immediately it 's deadly, what causes the disease is when the body’s immune system malfunctions and attacks the body’s tissue and organs destroying them. The disease is linked only with the X gene. This is what IPEX syndrome is. ( www.ghr.nlm.nih.gov; Immunodysregulation, Polyendocrinopathy, Enteropathy, X linked disease) With IPEX syndrome, there are also many effects, one including type one diabetes. Type one diabetes is when the pancreas produces little to no insulin in the body, because of this a person might have to either wear an insulin pump or take insulin shots.
The scarlet fever is an infection that can develop inside people who have strep throat. The infection is caused by group A streptococcus bacteria, which are the same bacteria that cause strep throat. These bacteria produce a toxin, or poison, that causes a bright red rash on the body. The scarlet-colored rash is what gives scarlet fever its name. Aside from the rash, people with scarlet fever usually have a high fever and sore throat.
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.
The death of skeletal muscle tissue can leak poisonous intramuscular toxins such as myoglobin and creatine kinase (CK) into the blood stream and have you in the hospital within hours (Torres 2015). You at first, may think you are just tired after a hard hit , yet the swelling and weakness of limbs is much more dangerous than
There was a high probability the bacterial infection could have been necrotizing fasciitis due to the overlapping signs and symptoms of both infections. Both of these bacterial infections can be caused by a Gram-positive bacteria called Clostridium perfringens and the portal of entry for this endospore is through breaks in the skin that will infect the tissue. Necrotizing fasciitis causes intense pain and swelling at the site of infection. Discoloration of the skin along with hot to the tough, fever, nausea, malaise and other flulike symptoms. Patients normally have extremely low blood pressure which results in confusion.
When needed, there is surgery done to close the defect, but the others are focused on helping with the complications that were caused by the defect. A device that you can use is a back brace, to help your back stay straight and not cause you to be hunched back. Some procedures that you may take into consideration if you have this birth defect are urinary catheterization, colostomy, cesarean section,urinary diversion and enema. There are many specialist that you can go see like a orthopedic surgeon that performs surgery for bones and muscles. Maternal fatal medication specialist that manages high risk pregnancies.
This disease can also make it difficult or impossible for her to get pregnant later on. Though the effects on the human body are very harmful, is very easily cured by antibiotics. Chlamydia can also cause a potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy or pregnancy that occurs anywhere outside of the womb). 1 The number of cases of chlamydia
