New born babies with patau syndrome tend to have a cleft lip, or omphalitis which is an infection in the umbilical stump. Patau syndrome is the least common and worst Autosomal Trisomies, regular span of life is 3 days or less. Patau syndrome was first discovered in 1960. Patau syndrome is caused by an extra copy of chromosome 13. Every mother diagnosed with a baby affected by Patau syndrome is offered help with a doctor who is skilled in that disease.
These feelings can clearly last even beyond babies’ childhoods have passed. Even after her therapist had told her she was fine, she knew that she was simply not the same as she had been. She was in quicksand and could not seem to get out; she felt like she was going in circles. She is not alone; “An estimated 30-50 percent of moms affected with the disorder continue to struggle with major depression throughout the first year after birth - and beyond (Pearson).” Another point that Lisa Romeo introduces is that “lingering effects from postpartum depression...according to experts, are rarely recorded, and usually vanish entirely in three years’ time (Romeo).
Dehydration: Diarrhea and vomiting can lead to dehydration, a condition whereby there is significant depletion of bodily fluids. Diarrhea is a common complication of measles infection, Measles virus infects epithelial linings of the cavities of different organ systems; reticuloendothelial cells, white blood cells, macrophages, monocytes and T-lymphocytes which are all critical for our body defense mechanism.
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. Once the bacterial spores have access into the body they multiply at an alarming rate, and deposit tetanospasmin throughout the body. If the lesion is deep the bacterial toxin can thrive better, even with no or little oxygen. Tetanospasmin is a neurotoxin that directly targets the nervous system.
Dr. Blaser starts the book by describing how much humans have been using antibiotics, describing the use as more of an addiction. Dr. Blaser talks about how individuals use antibiotics in order for them to fight against bacterial infections. Also discusses using antibiotics as an agricultural input for industrial farming operations. In the text, Dr. Martin J. Blaser does argue against antibiotics. Dr. Martin Claims the reason in a clear thoughtful
Imagine this, you have been bitten by a tick almost 6 years ago. You have not had any problems and you did not even know it until this one day. You feel sick, heart problems start to show and one side of your face is suddenly paralysed. You have no idea what to do or what it is. So you decide to go to the doctor.
My name is Carline Archille, I am a registered nurse focused in psychiatric nursing. I am going to give you all the important information you need about postpartum depression, and what can you do to help you and your newborn baby. I have given you all a handout about the three types of postpartum that a woman can have after giving birth, signs and symptoms of post partum depression, and basic treatments. I hope you find the handout is well explained and easy to read. In the meantime, if you have more questions I will be available after the presentation to answer them.
Once the cell is inside, it spreads and doesn’t cease destruction until the host is dead. The way in which the Trojan horse and the Ebola virus attack are very similar: brutal, clever and inconspicuous. Preston compares the historical story of legend of the Trojan horse to the Ebola virus, hence allusion is portrayed in his
With them came smallpox, measles, chicken pox, influenza, and many other diseases. “Before the arrival of Columbus, Native American disease wasn’t dominant in the land. Due to the lack of exposure of disease in their younger years, Native Americans were vulnerable to the European diseases that would come with the Columbian Exchange. The diseases would soon destroy many societies of the ancient Aztec, Maya, and Inca. Through many estimates it is foreseen that alien diseases caused over 50% deaths of the Native American population.
The Bubonic Plague once destroyed 60% of a population once. The Bubonic Plague, or Yertis Pestis bacterium, affects the Immune System, and causes lymph nodes to swell. The Immune System is responsible for the body’s immunity to pathogens. It causes much malfunction in the body, leading up to death if untreated.
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
They did not dispose of them properly or sterilize the needles. EBO-Z was then spread throughout YMH, infecting staff members as well as patients” (Commission). This encounter shows how Ebola Zaire (EBO-Z) has been easily spread throughout the YMH and can ruin the human population. EBO-Z will eat its victim and lead them to a painful death. The earliest known outbreak was located at Yambuku, Democratic Republic of Congo, suggesting that all known outbreaks evolved from a Yambuku like virus after nineteen seventy-six.
Broad spectrum antibiotics tend to kill the bodies normal flora, which then allows bacterium’s like C. difficile to spread and grow rapidly in its vegetative state. Toxin A (enterotoxin) is then produced causing diarrhea, followed by toxin B (cytotoxin) which causes damage to the mucosal cells. Toxin A and B also induce the secretion of cytokines into host cells, which often cause an acute neutrophilic inflammatory infiltrate. Together, these toxins enable the interruption of tight junctions in the intestine and cause inflammation of the colon leading to an extensive amount of fluid secretion (diarrhea). A third toxin has recently been discovered in newer strains of this bacterium called the binary toxin.
