ABSTRACT Wound is a breach in the skin and the exposure of subcutaneous tissue following loss of skin integrity. Post-operative wound infections are major global problem in the field of surgery leading to many complications, increased morbidity and mortality. A total 75 pus samples were collected from post-operative wound infections of which 63/75 (84%) bacterial isolates were obtained. Among the isolates, 29/63 (46%) were Gram positive and 34/63 (54%) were Gram negative organisms. The percentage prevalence of the bacterial isolates was as follows- Staphylococcus aureus 18/63 (29%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa 14/63 (22%), Coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) 11/63 (17%), Klebsiella pneumoniae 8/63 (13%), Proteus vulgaris 7/63 (11%) and
Bowel elimination is a physiological process in which waste is created by the metabolism of the body and is excreted by the gastrointestinal system. Diarrhea caused by clostridium difficile (C.diff) is due to a disruption in normal gastrointestinal flora. C.Diff is a gram-positive bacteria that is commonly found in patients within the hospital setting, and infection is often a consequence of antibiotic usage. Initially, the symptoms present as severe cramping of the abdomen, and frequent large watery stools. The symptoms associated with an infection caused by C.diff are the result of gastroenteritis which is “a very common health problem worldwide that causes diarrhea and/or vomiting as a result of INFLAMMATION of the mucous membranes of the stomach and intestinal tract.
It was noted that the claimant presented to the ER with complaints of a headache and fever. Urinalysis showed urine pH of 8.0 with squamous epithelial cells of 31-50/LPF. She had elevated glucose at 126 with low levels of BUN at 6, potassium at 3.3, sodium at 135, and chloride at 95. She was diagnosed with a viral syndrome. Zofran and a follow-up visit were recommended.
It is well established that glial cells are the resident innate immune cells of the central nervous system, plays a critical role in inflammation-mediated neurodegeneration disorders. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS), an endotoxin, the outer membrane component of Gram-negative bacteria, is a major pathogenic factor in sepsis. LPS has been established for inflammatory research because LPS induces systemic inflammation mimicking the initial clinical features of sepsis (Block & Hong 2005). Both PZ and PT at the studied concentrations, i.e., 5 and 10 μg/mL, showed significant reduction in production of pro-inflammatory cytokines in LPS-induced neuroinflammation model in C6 cells. PZ showed 26.27±1.33 and 30.77±0.94 % inhibition and PT showed 17.10±1.19 and 42.13±3.54 % inhibition of TNF-α at dose 5 and 10µg/ml respectively.
Decreased hydrogen ion concentration, leading to increased bicarbonate, or alternatively a direct result of increased bicarbonate concentrations causes metabolic alkalosis. Common causes are prolonged vomiting, hypovolemia, diuretic use, and hypokalemia (James L. Lewis, 2016). Compensation for metabolic alkalosis occurs in the lungs. Metabolic alkalosis leads to alveolar hypoventilation with a rise in arterial carbon dioxide tension. A patient is treated depending on its cause.
By analyzing Mr Jensen’s post-operative assessment data, his hypovolemia is able to be staged. By staging Mr Jensen’s hypovolemia, an indication of the amount of fluid volume loss, his body’s compensatory mechanisms, priority problems and nursing interventions are able to be identified. Clinically, there are four stages of hypovolemia. Each stage is determined by the amount of fluid volume lost (Brown & Edwards, 2013). By looking at Mr Jensen’s post-operative vital assessment data, his hypovolemia is able to be classified as a stage two.
Pediatric Prep Sheet 1. Give a brief description of this disease/diagnosis. Include basic pathophysiology GM was diagnosing with bilious emesis, this disease is describe by excessive yellow vomiting. The obstruction of some part of the small intestine can cause the expulsion of the intestinal content which has already mixed with bile. The most common symptom is constipation accompanied by the present of abdominal distention and pain.
Sickle Cell Anemia a Negative and Positive Taylor Martin University of Missouri-Columbia September 23, 2015 Sickle Cell Anemia a Negative and Positive General Purpose: To inform my audience about Sickle Cell Anemia. Specific Purpose: As a result of my speech, the audience will be informed about Sickle Cell Anemia and how it can affect people. Central Idea: Sickle Cell Anemia has some negatives but, it can also be a positive in certain areas with the malaria virus. Introduction In America 70,000 to with sickle cell trait Sickle cell disease is an inherited disorder that affects red blood cells. Many of you have probably heard of these dieses but, may not have heard the full details of the dieses.
("What Causes Lupus? - National Resource Center on Lupus." 26 Sep. 2017, https://resources.lupus.org/entry/what-causes-lupus.) The process to diagnose Lupus is laboratory test which consist of complete blood count, Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, kidney and liver assessment, urinalysis, and anthinuclear antibody test another way to diagnose Lupus is chest x-ray, and echocardiogram another thing to do is a biopsy of kidneys. Treatment of Lupus depends on your signs and symptoms.
