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.The gas in Gas gangrene is composed of five different gases combined together such as nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide..
Flood waters commonly contain high levels of bacteria. 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.
Helicobacter pylori Cardiovascular Microbiology 212 research Supervised by: Dr.Muzaheed Abdul rasheed Zahra Dhiya Al-Ahmed 2170003019 CT | 2nd year Subtitle Page Number Introduction 3,4,5 Diagnosis 5,6 Breath Test 6 Blood Test 6 Stool Test 6 Biopsy 7 Transmission 7 Immune response 8 Symptoms 8,9,10 Treatment 10,11 Prevention 12 conclusion 12,13 References 14,15 Index Introduction Who does not have abdominal pain during childhood? predominantly, most people have this pain correspond to an infection. Many scientist and doctors count stress, increase the acidity, lifestyle, and spicy food as main causes of gastric infection while others relate it to bacteria. The first belief was the most supposed until two Australian physicians, Barry Marshall and Robin Warren before 1982 when bacterium was discovered, proved the opposite. They built a theory based on a specific type of bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) as one of results of stomach infection and they proved it.
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. However, there are ways on how to get rid of toenail fungus Dr Oz suggests.
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.
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 bacterial toxins can damage milk secreting tissue and other such ducts and sometimes-permanent damage can occur. 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
