The Bubonic Plague once destroyed 60% of a population once. The Bubonic Plague, or Yertis Pestis bacterium, affects the Immune System, and causes lymph nodes to swell. The Immune System is responsible for the body’s immunity to pathogens. It causes much malfunction in the body, leading up to death if untreated. The Immune System, which the cell attacks, is responsible for warding off enemies from the body.
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.
The Mayo Clinic has developed a model that allows their physician contributors the ability to avoid burnout allowing them to continue in their research or treatment of patients. (Swenson & Kabcenell, 2016) Such freedom and the encouragement to decompress are extremely attractive to research doctors, specifically those who conduct research on various disorders that affect children, such as ADHD. In fact, the Mayo Clinic is so confident in the content of their Web site and the credibility of those who contribute; they provide the reader with a direct profile to each doctor that contributed to the content on the site. (Mayo Clinic,
Tetanus Muscular System Tetanus, also known as lockjaw, is a serious bacterial infection called Clostridium tetani, that causes serious painful muscle spasms and can lead to death. Clostridium tetani spores are able to for long periods outside of the body. These spores found mainly in animal feces and contaminated soil, but they can survive anywhere. The bacteria enters the body through puncture wounds. Tetanus can enter the body by; animal bites, skin burns, body piercing and tattoos done with unsterile tools, injection of drugs with contaminated needles, abrasion and laceration, and even circumcision.
The outside sources illustrate how cancer is viewed as restraining and shameful. The best way to truthfully comprehend cancer or TB is to disassociate the disease from metaphors. Another false impression people have about cancer is environmental factors “but once cancer is present, it cannot be reversed or diminished by a move to a better environment” (Sontag 16). TB is a bacterial infection, and cancer “is a disease of growth”. Throughout human history, TB has been regarded as a romantic disease and cancer has been known to be “de-sexualizing and thought to cripple vitality”.
Tuberculosis, Have you ever heard about this Word/term before? I guess your answer is yes . Since the early ages TB had infected many people and caused their death . IF you have never heard of it , here are some information about it . Certain Bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis attacks the lungs, hunting the infected person’s life, but not only that but it raises its hand to attack another people’s lives including your closest people ; your family , friends and your society .
The two resources share the same conflict of tuberculosis, but the way the authors portray them is completely different. In the “Breathing Room”, Evvy was diagnosed with tuberculosis. She experienced many effects such as bad fevers, terrible night sweats, bad coughs that contained blood, and weight loss. “ My lungs kept playing tug-of-war with the walls of my chest.” “But the coughing got worse. Stars swirled in front of my eyes.
The miasma theory is that disease was caused by “the presence in the air of a miasma, a poisonous vapour in which were suspended particles of decaying matter that was characterized by its foul smell” (Science Museum, n.d.). It had been around since the Middle Ages and was thought to be the cause of infectious diseases. Scientists like John Snow wrote about what he observed which was that the miasma theory was false. Pasteur did an experiment and determined that it was bacteria that grows from the outside (5 things Louis Pasteur did, 2015). Pasteur went on to discover that there were bacteria getting into wounds and even though some doctors rebuked his ideas, they tried them.
2.4.0 Health worker challenges contributing to low TB case detection 2.4.1 Logistics and supply chain system. Screening and diagnosis of TB cases in the various health facilities is to a large extent dependent on the availability of adequate logistic. Lack of screening tools has been cited as a major challenge contributing to missed opportunities with regards to TB care (Dimitrova, 2006; Ngadaya et al., 2009; Artawan Eka Putra et al., 2013). Ngadaya et al ( 2009), further reported that there were occasions when guidelines for TB case detection were not existent and even places where they existed, staff did not know about them and hence contributed to low TB case detection. 2.4.2 Contextual (client) challenges affecting TB case
The Black Plague was a detrimental epidemic that affected every social class and still wreaks havoc to this day. The Black Death was a deadly disease that spread through Europe from 1346-1353 (Benedictow 1). This gruesome infection was caused by bacteria Yersinia pestis (Benedictow 1). Yersinia pestis is a bacteria transmitted to people bitten by fleas from infected rodents (“Plague” 1). It then takes over the whole human body (Aberth 19).
