Because they also encourage mucous secretions, macrophage activity on pneumococci is decreased while bacterial adhesion to the epithelium is increased. Pneumonia is a condition that aggravates the air sacs in one or both lungs. The air sacs may fill with fluid or pus causing cough with phlegm or pus, fever, chills, and difficulty breathing. Cyanosis occurs as a result of the decrease in gas exchange through the inflamed alveolar membrane and subsequent decline in hemoglobin saturation. One of the most common complications of the flu is a bacterial infection.
Unit 7 Assignment Acid-Base Balance: Respiratory Acidosis and Alkalosis, Metabolic Acidosis and Alkalosis Tianna Robinson February 23,2016 SC131: Human Anatomy and Physiology Normal blood pH ranges from7.35 to 7.45. When blood pH decreases below 7.35 an acidosis occurs. Respiratory acidosis is caused when the lungs cannot remove all of the carbon dioxide that is produced by the body and body fluids become too acidic (Respiratory acidosis, 2014). Ranges that are normal for PaCO2 are 35-45 mm Hg. A lung condition that affects breathing or impairs the lung’s ability to remove CO2 may be the cause of respiratory acidosis.
Those who vape are susceptible to bronchitis or severe cough, teary or dry eyes, and lung cancer. These risks that those who vape take are serious conditions, but those who do the vaping aren’t the only ones susceptible to these conditions, those around them are also exposed to secondhand vaping which is just as bad as taking in the vapor directly from
Strep throat is a bacterial infection that affects people of all ages which causes inflammation and pain in the throat. Strep throat is highly contagious and can easily be spread from one person to another through airborne droplets (coughing and sneezing), kissing with someone who’s infected and through shared food and drinks. This condition is caused by group A Streptococcus. The signs and symptoms for strep throat may vary from person-to-person. Some people may have the condition without experiencing any of the symptoms, whereas other people may experience a severe sore throat with flulike symptoms which includes a sudden fever, body aches, headache, chills, loss of appetite, swollen lymph nodes in the neck and trouble swallowing.
Common diseases during that time included anaemia, rheumatism, arthritis, tuberculosis and dysentery (known as the flux), and the Bubonic Plague. Many factors made diseases dangerous. Fever during pregnancy was dangerous. Also, the white makeup applied to women 's faces was poisonous (lead-based) causing a lot of them to become sick. Influenza as well as STDs were common, including Syphilis.
This disease could lead to hearing loss, brain damage, and even death. Hepatitis A and B are serious liver diseases which can cause fever, nausea or vomiting, jaundice, abdominal pain, or joint pain. Measles can cause high fevers, coughing, runny nose, red eyes, and rashes. Getting vaccinations to prevent these diseases and other communicable diseases is an important thing to do if you want to avoid sickness or other severe health
Some of these symptoms are; anxiety or depression, pawing at the ground, looking at the flank, rolling or wanting to lie down, lack of appetite, abnormally high pulse, or frequent attempts to urinate. One type of colic is spasmodic colic otherwise known as gas colic. Symptoms include; sweating, sporadic gut pain, loud gut sounds, overly restless and anxious, and frequent attempts to roll. The second type of colic is impaction colic. These symptoms are more severe.
Respiration consists of transportation of oxygen from the atmosphere to the body tissues and the release and carriage of carbon dioxide formed in the tissues to the atmosphere. The human respiratory system is a series of organs responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide. We can list the primary organs of the respiratory system as nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and lungs which carry out this exchange of gases as we breathe. During inspiration air passes through respiratory passages due to the pressure differences formed in chest and trunk muscles. The ‘respiratory tract’ consists of these passageways and the lungs.
-Many people experience the symptoms which include itchy skin rashes, nodules under the skin and vision changes .Non- painful swelling of lymph glands. - These symptoms caused by the response to dead larvae. In addition to itching it can cause long-term damage to the skin. -They can cause changes in color of the skin that result in "leopard skin" appearance. -Thinning of the skin with loss of elastic tissue "cigarette-paper" appearance.
