This is a dangerous factor for humans and animals. Additionally, C. diff is an opportunistic infection, meaning that the pathogen will most likely thrive when the immune system is weak, such as during or after taking an antibiotic drug. This disease can be induced by treatment with antibiotics or by disruption of the normal gastrointestinal flora. C. diff has now become largely common in the hospital and
“Drugs are chemical substances which, by interaction with biological targets can alter the biochemical systems of the body.” (Mottram) This can cause many things in an athlete’s body to happen. On the cardiac muscles, if using, drugs can increase the force and rate of a heartbeat. Using steroids can cause a lot of mood swings from this. Steroids are not always bad, they have helped us in the medical world as long as they 're not being abused. Steroids come with side-effects only when they are abused.
When someone has lupus something goes wrong with their immune system, which is the part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs. Normally our immune system would produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body from these invaders. When someone has an autoimmune disease it means their immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and their body’s healthy tissues. This creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies
Currently there are three medications, Teriflunomide, Fingolimod and Dimethyl Fumarate. While these medications offer the convenience of a pill they have considerable and potentially dangerous side effects. Teriflunomide (Aubagio) works by blocking the enzyme dihydroorotate dehydrogenase, which inhibit rapidly dividing cells like those of the immune system. Serious side effects include inability to fight infection, breathing problems and high blood pressure. Other side effects include: headache; diarrhea; nausea; hair thinning or loss; and abnormal liver test results.
Oral steroids will prevent the progression of COPD, but using oral steroids for an extended amount of time can cause cataracts and weight gain. Long-term use of oral steroids can also cause diabetes and osteoporoses. Theophylline is an inexpensive medication that is used to improve breathing and prevent COPD from progressing to the later stages. Doctors usually prescribe low does of the medication. After taking Theophylline, you might have a rapid heartbeat, tremor and headache.
This bacteria can be life threaten when it infects the fascia, or connective tissue that surrounds muscles, blood vessels and nerve. Streptococcus pyogenes destroy red platelets, white platelets that is the body defense system, and other body cells. With the immune system compromised Streptococcus pyogenes is capable of causing many different diseases. These diseases range from mild, like strep throat and impetigo, to severe, like necrotizing fasciitis, and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome. The bacteria typically enters the body through an open of the skin causing infection just below the skin that spreads to deeper
6. Name two possible treatments for this disease. 1.Topical treatment that can rub into the affected area of the skin. 2.Coal-tar ointments and shampoos.” These products can help slow the rapid growth of skin cells and alleviate symptoms, but some people are vulnerable to the side effects, especially folliculitis, a pimple-like rash, affecting the hair follicles. These medicines should be used only under a doctor 's supervision.” 7.
Rhabdomyolysis: an imbalance of toxins in blood due to the breakdown on skeletal muscle, could be just that. This disease can affect athletes of all ages and has devastating consequences. When, for instance a wrestler is hit hard on the mat and he injures a muscle, we normally wait for a bruise to arise and figure it will be gone quite soon. This impact on the muscle can actually lead to muscle damage or muscle death. 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).
Anabolic steroids can be addictive the the body, and if used improperly, can cause many negative side effects. They are used by medicine to treat medical conditions, and athletes to increase their performance. Steroids come with
Naloxone is an antidote medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid effects meaning it binds to opioid receptors and can reverse and block the effects of opioids. It can very quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped as a result of overdosing with opioids like heroin or prescription opioid pain medications. Although, naloxone can reverse effects of opioids but it can give false sense of safety in case of opioid overdose, and hence at times increasing the risk of deaths from opioid overdose. Half-life of naloxone can be shorter than that of the opioid itself, that means naloxone stays in the system for short period of time compared with opioid, so repeat dosing after 2-3 minutes or continuous naloxone infusion may be required for it to be effective in saving lives until emergency help
Most people that are diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis suffer from MS attacks. Just like with the disease, some are worse than others, when an MS attack occurs the symptoms that the person has worsen and can become unbearable. Treatments for MS can aid in speeding up the recovery of attacks and can slow the progression of the disease, the medication that is most commonly used is corticosteroids, an oral prednisone that will reduce nerve inflammation. Plasma exchanges are also used when symptoms are severe and haven’t responded to steroids. The prognosis of a person with Multiple Sclerosis is very positive if managed and good health is maintained, even though there is still no cure for the
Traction does not work for everyone though, but can relieve most symptoms. Cervical radiculopathy is a common diagnosis, based clinically on the purpose of neck pain extending into the arm accompanied by signs of nerve root compression during the physical examination. Cervical traction also helps decreasing foraminal compression and intradiscal pressures. In order to help with degenerative disc disease, traction should be part of a treatment and rehabilitation exercises such as stretching as many angles of the neck. Traction could be used for stabilization of the neck and improve neck alignment.
