Diarrhoea is usually a symptom of an underlying condition. It can be caused by a number of factors such as : Gastroenteritis - this is typically acquired from food or water that has been contaminated by faeces or directly from another infected person. This causes infectious diarrhoea and the infectious agents can be bacteria, viruses or parasites. Common causative bacterial agents are Escherichia coli, Vibrio cholerae, Shigella dysenteriae and Clostridium difficile.
It can be bacterial or viral. The symptoms of tonsillitis are fever, sore throat, foul breath, difficulty swallowing, painful swallowing, trismus (unable to open mouth), and tender cervical lymph nodes (Stelter, 2014). A throat examination will show red, swollen tonsils, and white or yellow exudate on tonsils. A rapid strep test using a throat swab can be done to distinguish this from strep throat. If strep is not indicated, a throat swab and culture can be done to determine if the cause for the swollen tonsils is bacterial.
it\'s going to result to associate infection within the muscle as a result of a illness of the arteries, interference the guts valves and also the likes. medication is also prescribed to assist one with this type of issues. Pulmonary valve stricture (PVS) This condition happens once there\'s a thickening of 1 or additional valves within the heart cavity. this could result in blockage of the guts between those within which the condition has progressed in DVE a amount of your time.
The urine and prostatic secretions contain large quantities of microorganisms, pus, and leukocytes. The infection is caused by gram-negative bacteria that usually produce urinary tract infections (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Proteus, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus faecalis.) The bacteria reach the urinary tract through the bloodstream and lymph system, or may be sexually transmitted (Neisseria
Biliary Colic, Adult Biliary colic is severe pain caused by a problem with a small organ in the upper right part of your belly (gallbladder). The gallbladder stores a digestive fluid produced in the liver (bile) that helps the body break down fat. Bile and other digestive enzymes are carried from the liver to the small intestine though tube-like structures (bile ducts). The gallbladder and the bile ducts form the biliary tract. Sometimes hard deposits of digestive fluids form in the gallbladder (gallstones) and block the flow of bile from the gallbladder, causing biliary colic.
There are two types of the herpes simplex virus. HSV-1, also known as oral herpes, can cause cold sores and fever blisters around the mouth and on the face. HSV-2 is generally responsible for genital herpes outbreaks. What is HSV-1 and HSV-2?
The duodenum is the segment of gut coming from your stomach. The infection caused by H. pylori is also related with stomach cancer and gastritis (the inflammation in your stomach). Cause H. pylori infections mostly spread orally from one person to another. They might also be spread from feces to mouth; for example, if a person doesn’t wash his/her hands properly after using the toilet. A person can also get infected by H. pylori through infected food or water.
The main problem that the kidneys are prone to is kidney failure, also called acute renal failure. This is the condition where the kidneys lose their ability to stop working or perform their functions. The types of causes of this disorder are categorized based on when they take place, therefore there are the pre -renal, renal and the post- renal causes. The pre- renal causes are the ones that happen before the disease occurs, they include; blood-clotting issues, low blood pressure causing low blood volume (hypovolemia) in the kidney, urinary tract infections, dehydration and medication such as diuretics which cause water loss. Renal causes affect the kidney directly, they include sepsis (when the immune system is overwhelmed by infections which causes the kidney to shut down), medication which are toxic to the kidney e.g. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, and others) etc.
In all areas of healthcare, particularly in acute care settings, patients may be unable to care for their nutritional and/or hygienic needs properly. One area that is especially important to address is the perineal care of patients who are incapacitated, or otherwise unable to care for their hygienic needs independently. Normal bacterial flora can develop into an opportunistic infection if the bacteria reaches certain areas of the body. For example, a common cause of urinary tract infections (UTI) is due to Escherichia coli from the colon coming into contact with the urethra (Copstead & Banasik, 2013). If the patient is immunocompromised, elderly, sedentary, or otherwise compromised in their abilities to void, this can predispose the patient
Food or bacteria in the intestines, or even the lining of the bowel may cause the uncontrolled inflammation associated with Crohn 's disease.
