The evolution of antibiotic resistant bacteria, is the consequence of the overuse of antibiotics in both humans and animals (Knoppel, A,. et al. 2017). Since the first uses of penicillin, there have been numerous cases of resistance towards the antibiotic penicillin. The bacteria associated with penicillin, has originated from rare and naturally resistant varieties that had prevented the killing of the bacteria and as a result, making the drug ineffective.
Presently, the patient’s condition is deteriorating following a recent breathlessness attack in addition to a productive cough that alludes to a bacterial infection that requires an antibiotic treatment. The long history of SOB has seen the patient use a range of drugs that include prednisolone nebulizer, salmeterol, O2 prn, paracetamol prn, and insulin. Therefore, the physiotherapist needs to determine the effectiveness of these medicines and possibly change the combination to yield better
In addition, phages can also overcome host resistance mutations. However, they can be eliminated by the body's defense mechanisms. Phage therapy has been used as an alternative to antibiotics. The use of natural phages to treat bacterial infection has very known history in the western medicine. Antibiotics are one of the most successful forms of chemotherapy in the history of medicine.
Usually when somebody has a heart attack, people sometimes wait a while before seeking the much needed medical attention. It is extremely important that the patients gets medical treatment as soon as possible after the occurrence of the myocardial infarction as this increases the chances of their survival. CAUSES Myocardial infarction is usually caused by a blockade in the blood supply of the heart muscles. This can occur when there is the hardening of the arterial walls, or if there is an thrombus or embolism in the blood vessels and this reduces the amount of blood that can go through. If there is a complete block, then this can cause the area where the blood vessel supplies the blood to undergo necrosis which is also known as heart attack.
The purpose of transfusion is twofold: to improve the anemia and to suppress the ineffective erythropoiesis. Chronic transfusions prevent most of the serious growth, skeletal and neurological complications of thalassemia major (6). In spite of its vital role in saving lives and enhancing patients' lives, blood transfusion is associated with risks. Making mistakes in blood transfusion and insufficient control of patients who receive blood during the transfusion can lead to death in such patients (7). So, standards of safe blood transfusion must be developed and maintained to ensure a safe and rational approach in the use of blood transfusions in the management of these disorders, also careful consideration must be given to the associated dangers(6).
The Good the Bad and the Vaccine Vaccines, a term that gives some parents the peace of mind and makes some parents anxious. Vaccines makes our bodies ready to fight disease and viruses more effectively by introducing our body to microscopic amounts of viruses and bacteria. Common deadly diseases such as small pox that took many lives has now been eliminated because of the smallpox vaccine. In the past common diseases such as polio, rubella is now a rare case because of vaccination. To prevent public out break, Vaccination for childhood diseases such as pertussis, polio, measles, diphtheria, rubella is now mandatory for children attending public schools in Canada.
Do vaccinations really help prevent diseases in the body? A vaccination, usually a shot, is intended to prevent diseases in the body and prepare your body to fight the disease faster and more effectively so that you become immune to certain diseases and sickness. They are required in most school settings and health care related fields. In the year 1798 Edward Jenner created the first vaccination: the smallpox vaccine using Cowpox puss, and in 1980 the World Health Organization declared smallpox an eliminated disease. But did it really help the body and its immunity system?
Palliative care is an example of one of these alternatives, which are often over looked. Palliative care is medical care focused on providing patients with relief from pain and suffering, by providing pain reducing medication. However as time progresses the patients body will become resistant to this medication and stronger doses would have to be administered. These doses will gradually increase and inevitably become lethal. The pain medication does not kill the patient immediately but does accelerate the patient’s inevitable death.
Literature reveals that the incidence of infections is higher in the 2 years following the surgery, especially from pneumococcal infections. The management of splenectomized patients is critical in reducing the risk of post-infections. This involves: providing adequate education to the patient with regard to the immunological function of the spleen and the risk of infection by encapsulated bacteria, vaccination and antibiotic prophylaxis as the cornerstone of preventative treatment against these
There are some exceptions for some of the patients who have certain diseases as 1.Diabetes mellitus 2.Cancer patients 3.Tuberculosis Not only those diseases still some. Exceptions here doesn't mean that the therapists cannot use it with their patients, but there will be a certain type of DTSP the therapist should use with his or her patient to get the successful results. If those excepted diseases used the normal DTSP the results might be failing and lead to many other problems. For example, the AIDS(HIV) patient used the normal DTSP he will harm the other patients and they will get the AIDS especially because DTSP will reach the blood. So the AIDS(HIV) and any sensitive disease patients, patients shouldn't use the same DTSP.
