Syphilis Syphilis is an acute disease that was not perfectly understood until scientists start to do clinical researches over patients having the disease and the bacteria themselves. Experiments were done on syphilis to understand how it proceeds, and how it can be cured. After the discovery of this affliction, doctors tried very hard to understand the disease, so they did various experiments. some of them were legal while others were illegal. In 1932, The Tuskegee syphilis experiment was done on black people in Alabama by U.S public health service.
(http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/237229-treatment). Prior to contacting the smallpox virus, obtain the vaccine. Aministering the vaccine four days after a person has been exposed can either prevent them from having symptoms or drastically reduce the brutal symptoms of smallpox. A person may also benefits from obtaining the vaccine four to seven days after they have been exposed to smallpox by it offering them minimal proctection and decreasing its intenseity
Running head: Kevin Holland Kevin Holland Clostridium difficile is becoming a major problem inside of hospitals. There are many reasons as to why the bacteria is becoming a top priority while treating patients mainly inside of the hospital setting. Hospital-induced infections, lack of a proper diet, and even when people do not perform proper hygiene is causing this bacteria that is considered normal biota, to flourish and cause gastrointestinal distress. Bacteria have spent millions of years growing and their whole goal is to keep doing that. A common symptom of Clostridium difficile is diarrhea (Aberra & Curry, 2017).
After running an ELISA on the patient to test for meningitis since it seemed to be common, the results came back negative and we were able to rule out Meningitis. So we ran a BLAST on Anthony’s blood to identify the DNA sequence for the bacteria and diagnose him. The BLAST identified the bacteria that he has to be Influenza B Virus, also known as the flu. To treat the flu, acetaminophen was given to decrease the fever and help with the muscle aches, as well as antiviral medications to fight the virus. Getting lots of rest and drinking lots of fluids will also help his body fight off the virus even
If you are already taking certain carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, and medications for gout, you should avoid using Pepto-Bismol. Also, if administering to children, you should be very cautious as the active ingredient can cause Reye’s syndrome if the child is exposed to the chickenpox virus or vaccine within a few weeks prior to taking Pepto-Bismol. Pepto-Bismol has also been found to react with many blood pressure medications, Botox, and other salicylate containing medications. When taking Pepto-Bismol, you should be sure to follow the dosage instructions on the label. Pepto-Bismol may also darken the tongue.
• An alternative to Azithromycin is Doxycycline for seven days. In patients with lymphogranuloma venereum or anal chlamydial infection, the Doxycycline regimen is the most indicated. • As the clinical picture of chlamydia can be very similar to that of gonorrhea, it is common for the doctor to prescribe a treatment that acts on the two bacteria. Ceftriaxone is associated with Azithromycin. • All couples of the infected patient should undergo tests and, if necessary, perform a treatment against chlamydia, even without presenting
People can be seen wearing ill-fitting masks, removing the masks, or wearing them without covering their nose. The CDC suggests surgical mask may not be an adequate barrier to prevent the spread of the disease. The disease is highly infectious and several nurses working at the TB isolation hospital, where Nakubheka was treated for her MDR-TB, were also infected. The treatment for TB has side effects, ranging from nausea and vomiting to permanent deafness and renal failure, and is not always completed by patients. Failure to finish the course of antibiotics can cause mutation to a more severe form called multi-drug resistant TB (MDR) or extensively drug resistant TB (XDR-TB).
Bacteria travel through the catheter and thrive in the bladder. A person who cannot urinate usually needs a catheter for more than just a few days (webmed.com). Most UTIs are not serious, but some infections can lead to serious problems. Chronic kidney infections can cause permanent damage, including kidney scars, poor function, and high blood pressure. Some acute kidney infections can be life threatening.
When plague is suspected and diagnosed early, a health care provider can prescribe specific antibiotics .The person should also be isolated to help prevent spread of plague. (GM)Also, certain antibiotics, Streptomycin, Gentamicin, Chloramphenicol, Tetracycline’s and Fluorquinolone’s, are currently used in the early stages of the plague before the patient is in the grasp of the disease (Davis 5). Also, the estimates of the Y.peteris infections are that “[it] is rarely seen in the U.S. (about 13 infections are diagnosed per year with one recent year with 40 diagnosed); however, about 14% of people who are diagnosed in the U.S. still die from the disease. The World Health Organization estimates about 2,900 individuals per year are diagnosed with plague currently. The prognosis of untreated plague is poor.
In order for vaccines to work appropriately, they have to operate in a very convoluted way to make sure they live up to their standards. 1. Vaccines are developed by using the bacteria’s specimen that has been either killed or damaged which are dissolved in a solution. When the vaccine is injected into the body, the specimen revives that person’s immune system. After being injected, the immune system will now fight against the microbe by forming antibodies.
