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. The resistance towards penicillin was due to the high number of antibiotic-resistance bacteria present which had a greater chance of survival over the bacteria that was not resistant, therefore being preserved and eventually causing a mutation in the bacteria not already resistant to penicillin (De
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.
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.
This is a dangerous factor for humans and animals. Additionally, C. diff is an opportunistic infection, meaning that the pathogen will most likely thrive when the immune system is weak, such as during or after taking an antibiotic drug. This disease can be induced by treatment with antibiotics or by disruption of the normal gastrointestinal flora. C. diff has now become largely common in the hospital and
The triclosan antiseptic is the most effective killer of E. Coli bacteria; however, recent studies have shown it could be harmful to human health. We recommend to doctors, hospitals, schools and families to use non- triclosan based products to help kill bacteria. Although the most effective killer, triclosan could potentially contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant germs and be harmful to the immune system. Scientists must find the balance between effectively killing bacteria and the safety of human
Quitting Smoking Smoking will worsen the symptoms of COPD. When you are diagnosed with COPD, you should stop smoking immediately. Quitting can be a difficult task, but it is the best way to make sure the disease does not progress to the later stages of COPD. If you are having difficulty quitting, you should ask your doctor to recommend nicotine substitute products.
Changes to lower the number of medical mistakes According to Media Health Leaders medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Hospitals today are making life threatening mistakes and are looking for a way to fix their ways of error. Three methods that would help lower the number of medical mistakes are the increasing patients’ engagement, improving physician guidelines, while decreasing faculty shifts hours. Being aware of your condition and diagnosis would help decrease the chance of experiencing a medical error, because you would have more than just the doctor involved in your overall treatment.
Getting the Shot, Not the Disease The first vaccine was presented in 1796 and since then continue to advance medicine and benefit patients. Through countless hours of research doctors have been able to construct different solutions to strengthen human immunity. Strengthening immunity among all people will reduce the amount of illnesses, and reducing the illnesses will decrease the mortality rate. Due to vaccinations promoting better immunity that significantly helps fight infection, it benefits patients that are at risk of diseases and helps prevent the spread of infection.
