Abstract: This research paper is going to demonstrate the outbreak, effects, means of transmission, and treatment of Zika virus disease. Zika virus disease is mosquito-borne flavivirus, meaning it primarily spreads through infected mosquito bites. Through research, we discovered that the Zika virus originated from an experiment that was held on subjects about yellow fever. Zika virus cases have been reported in many countries.
The clip that I chose to use is the case of the Zika virus. I am speaking on the 5 case of the Zika virus found in Miami. The Zika virus has arrived in the United States, with mosquitoes spreading the virus in two Miami-area neighborhoods and the CDC advising pregnant women to avoid those areas. Pregnant women who have traveled to the Wynwood area of Miami or a section of Miami Beach should see their doctor about getting tested, the CDC says. Pregnant women and their partners who live in the areas or must travel there should take steps to avoid mosquito bites.
To answer the question, yes I would be in favor of parents having the option to abort the fetus if the mother was infected with the Zika virus. Microcephaly is a birth defect that causes the baby’s head to be abnormally small, which usually results in underdeveloped brains. If microcephaly is prevalent in a routine, prenatal ultrasound, then the parents should be granted the option to have an abortion. Microcephaly inhibits the child for life, the child will have developmental problems, hearing problems and an array of other issues caused by microcephaly. In addition, a child with microcephaly is not only grievous, but it is also expensive.
Main Point 3: When in an area where Zika is common, or there are many mosquitos, some precautions are to be taken to stay clear of the virus. Sub-Point 1: It is recommended that when you are in a tropical country, you must use insect repellents. You should also wear long sleeves and pants, and sleep under a mosquito net. Sub-Point 2: If you are coming back from another island or you are infected it is important to visit the doctors within 2 weeks.
“Until a vaccination is found for the Zika Virus, we have to take safety precautions. It is most important that pregnant women do not travel to places where there are known cases of the Zika Virus, i.e., South America, Central America, Caribbean, Miami, Florida and Tampa, Florida. The greatest way to prevent Zika would be preventing mosquito bites. Wearing mosquito and bug repellant when you’re out can help. If you’re not able to wear repellants, you should cover your skin with long clothing.
VARICELLA ZOSTER VIRUS Varicella Zoster virus (VZV) is the causative organism of Chicken pox. The infection is acute and highly contagious. Apart from people immunized, about 90% of people globally get infected during their childhood by age 20 (Pérez-Farinós et al, 2007). The illness lasts for about 7to 10 days (). …….
Implantation Implantation is substantial process in the early pregnancy typically characterized by the attachment of the embryo to the epithelial lining of the uterus. The embryo undergoes the process of implantation at the blastocyst stage. It is an active process responsible for the blastocyst apposes, adhesion and progressively invasion into the endometrium to establish the placenta. Normal implantation zone: Implantation normally takes place in the body region of the uterus which is the corpus uteri in a functional layer called the endometrium. The endometrium is an epithelial layer line the uterus.
Stem cells are cells that haven’t differentiated yet. They have the ability to divide and make an indefinite number of copies of themselves. Other cells in the body can only replicate a limited number of times before they begin to break down. When a stem cell divides, it can either remain a stem cell or turn into a differentiated cell, such as a muscle cell or a red blood cell.
Health education and health promotion activities are a fundamental requirement for all health professionals. Throughout the healthcare industry, registered nurses make up the largest portion, currently ranging about 2.7 million where most of them administer patient care at hospitals as a staff nurses. Nurses frequently emphasize holistic medicine and play an important role in promoting public health. Traditionally, the focus of health promotion by nurses has been on diseases prevention and changing the behavior of individuals but on advancement on the field, their role as promoters of health now has been much more complex. They have multi-disciplinary knowledge and experience of health promotion in their nursing practice and enroll clinical nursing practices, consultation, follow-up treatment, patient education and illness prevention.
Given this, and knowing that people with autism suffer from being unable to understand people’s gestures, taking things in a literal way and having a lack of empathy, it is reasonable to hypothesize that there could be something wrong with this ‘mirror neuron’ reaction. Researchers have described people with autism as having a ‘broken mirror’, hence the ‘broken mirror hypothesis’. Some research has taken place into supporting this theory. Obviously it would be unethical to place an electrode into a human brain, so researchers have used other methods to record brain activity. One example is a research group at U.C.S.D who used an electroencephalogram (EEG) which measures brain waves.
“Plague in Central America,” by Arana Xajila, in the years of 1519-1560 talks about a deadly plague that derives from Europe to Mesoamerica (Central America) and spreads throughout Central America. This plague had spread to the people of Central America when their tribe, Cakchiquels, were fighting against the Spaniards. The Spaniards that were fighting in the tribe had passed on this deadly plague to the Cakchiquels tribe who then passed it on to others in Central America. This plague can be known as the influenza (flu). This deadly virus was spreading rapidly and soon everyone in Central America were affected.
