Clostridium difficile, also referred to as C. diff, is a bacterium that is known to cause mild to severe diarrhea and can lead to severe inflammation of the colon (Government of Canada, 2014). C. diff contains spores that are found in fecal matter. Through encountering a surface containing contaminants such as feces, puts a person at risk for the later development of diseases such as c. diff. This bacterium can also be spread through contact from healthcare workers that have not followed correct cleansing routines such as but not limited to hand washing. High dosages or extended usage of antibiotics can also increase the chances of developing C. diff (Government of Canada, 2014).
It occurs when infection develops inside the muscles or organs, more than likely from a trauma. Clostridium perfringens releases dangerous toxins into the body along with gas which can be trapped inside the tissue of muscles or organs. As the infection prolongs, the skin may become a pale-grayish color, and if you press the skin or put pressure on a tissue it may make a crackling noise because of the gas inside the tissue.(6) If you are diagnosed with gas gangrene you would need immediate medical treatment or death could occur in 48 hours. In Gas gangrene, the bacteria Clostridia release alpha, beta and other toxins, which induce blood clotting in the infection and leads to myonecrosis.
Small depressions filled with flood water provide an excellent breeding ground for bacteria. Whenever a well is inundated by flood waters or surface runoff, bacterial contamination is likely. Shallow wells and wells that do not have water-tight casings can be contaminated by bacteria infiltrating with the water through the soil near the well, especially in coarse-textured soils. Older water systems, especially, dug wells, spring-fed systems, and cistern-type systems are most vulnerable to bacterial contamination. Any system with casings or caps that are not water-tight are vulnerable.

It looks unsightly, frustrating, and disgusting. A fungus can latch itself into the cracks of your toenails where it can grow and eat up the nutrients in your toenails. If untreated, the condition may become painful. The surrounding area of the infected nail can swell and give off a foul odor.
In the article Invasion of the Superbugs by Alessandra Potenza she warns you of a dangerous new bacterial disease that is resistant to antibiotics and what this could mean for the future. What are these superbugs? They are an antibiotic resistant bacterial disease. This was caused the over and misuse of antibiotics. These superbugs are actually very dangerous, one boy Joseph Paz received this disease and got a sharp pain in his right leg.
Inflamed eyes, leg pains, headache, Skin rashes were the symptoms. How was it caused? It was caused by a bacterium founded in the stomach of lice. Lice were a never ending problem. The disease was transmitted via the bites of body lice.
Trench fever is carried by both body lice and ticks, but the bacteria it carries is what causes the disease. The bacteria is called Bartonella quintana. It is a highly contagious disease so if a soldier living in a crowded space has trench fever, it will spread to others fairly quickly. The body louse does not live on your body, but usually in the seams of your clothes however, it still sucks your blood. The louse causes itching, but the disease it carries is much worse.
However, considering the cross-infection risk, dressings changes are carried mostly out in the patient ward. Speaking of the ideal criteria for optimal analgesia for burn dressing changes we have to ensure that there are adequately staffed and safe environment in which to care for sedated patients. The control for severe acute pain due to nociception (inflammatory response) while painful dressing change is applied (i.e. dressing removal, wound cleansing) should be alleviated by titrating analgesics agents to individual requirements. One must avoid over sedation during and following the dressing change, but always ensure enough post-procedural analgesia by considerably amount of pain assessment and monitoring of vital signs. The ideal analgesia method also need to reduce prolonged fasting as little as possible while adequate nutrition and hydration are important for the healing process.
Mastitis can be caused by a number of different bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus uberis, Escherichia coli and Enterobacter aerogenes. The most common bacteria causing mastitis in Ireland are Staphaureus, Strepuberis, and E. coli. Mastitis is a difficult problem because
However, different strains of this plague can produce a variety of symptoms. Anyone who visits Yosemite National Park should be on the lookout for these symptoms for a few weeks after visiting. If this plague is not treated immediately, it can be fatal. Through much scientific research, a bacteria called Yersinia Pestis was discovered. This bacteria is spread by both animals and insects.
Lockjaw, also more commonly know as tetanus or Clostridium tetani, is a desease caused by bacterial infection. the bacterium Clostridium tetani, is commonly found in soil, saliva, dust, and manure and can be introduced to the blood stream via a skin puncture, the bacterium produces a toxin called Tetanospasmin which interferes with muscle contractions, resulting in muscle spasms or spasmodic muscle contractions. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetanus). Tetanospasmin permanently binds receptors, so in that sense it can 't be cured. In the case of advanced tetanus treatment involves antibiotics and paralytics while being put on a respirator, which is needed until your receptors regenerate.(Andrew Lehman, Immunologist and Virologist, https://www.quora.com/How-can-tetanus-be-cured).
Opening: If you are having tetanus, and you don’t know anything about it, the article below will give further information on this matter. Body: What is tetanus? Tetanus is an infection which is caused by bacteria named Clostridium tetani. Once penetrated to your body, the bacteria can generate a powerful toxin called tetanospasmin, which impairs the nerves that have the function to control your muscle (motor neurons).
