Each skin opening in the body will bleed, no matter how minuscule it is—even needle punctures. The surface of the tongue will begin to take on a brilliant color red, which will eventually slough off. It may even be spat out or swallowed. Loosening of the tongue’s surface may be a result of vomiting. The virus is known to be systemic, which means the infection attacks every tissue and organ of the body except the skeletal muscles and bones.
Depending on its cause, pleurisy may be accompanied by other symptoms, such as, shortness of breath, fever and chills, rapid shallow breathing, unexplained weight loss, sore throat followed by pain and swelling in the joints, diarrhea, erectile dysfunction, and vomiting blood. The inflammation of the pleura sometimes causes fluid to build up in the pleural cavity. This is known as pleural effusion. You may have less pain after this happens, because the fluid prevents the two layers of the pleura from rubbing together. If there is a large amount of fluid, it may prevent the lung from expanding when you breathe in.
(1) Definition: Lung inflammation caused by bacterial or viral infection. (2) Pathophysiology: Pneumonia is an excess of fluid in the lungs resulting from an inflammatory process. It is an acute infection of the alveoli. This is a global problem, and the WHO (World Health Organization) suggests that it is the most common cause of death in children and that 1.4 million die each year as a result of pneumonia. Pneumonia may also occur as a complication in hospital settings, secondary to surgery.
STAGE 4 Pressure sores progress, with extensive damage to deeper tissues (muscles, tendons and bones). Serious complications, such as osteomyelitis (infection of the bone) or sepsis (infection carried through the blood) can occur. 1:2 Common places where pressure sores are likely to develop are, back of head and ears, elbows, lower back and sacrum, shoulders, hips, heels and the inner knees. 1:3 Factors that put individuals at risk of skin breakdown and pressure sores are confinement to a bed, chair or wheel chair, Inability to change positions without help, loss of bowel or bladder control, poor nutrition and/or dehydration and decreased mental awareness. 1:4 By using incorrect moving and handling techniques one might put residents at risk.
This is called choridal neovascularization. These blood vessels leak blood and fluid into the retina, causing distortion of vision. The dry form of macular can also lead to the wet form. Only about 10% of patients with macular degeneration develop the wet form, they make up the majority who experience serious vision loss from the disease. Macular degeneration can be passed from parent to child, smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and being light skinned, female and having light eye color are also risks for macular degeneration (webmd copy write 2005-2014, LLC) Glaucoma is an eye disease characterized by dysfunction of the ocular drainage system.
Cohn’s disease Cohn’s disease is caused by genetics, the immune system, smoking or previous infection. Researchers have identified more than 200 different genes that are more common in people with Crohn's disease than in the general population. The immune system provides protection against harmful bacteria that could potentially find their way into the digestive system. In certain genetically susceptible individuals, a previous childhood infection may lead to an abnormal immune response, causing the symptoms of Crohn's disease. Aside from family history and ethnic background, smoking is the most important risk factor for Crohn's disease.
STAGE 3 The sore worsens and extends beneath the skin surface, forming a small crater. There may be no pain at this stage due to nerve damage. The risk of tissue death and infection are high. STAGE 4 Pressure sores progress, with extensive damage to deeper tissues (muscles, tendons and bones). Serious complications, such as osteomyelitis (infection of the bone) or sepsis (infection carried through the blood) can occur.
ligament, and the medial collateral ligament are often injured in sports. The posterior cruciate ligament may also be injured. The most common injuries to the knee are ACL, MCL, PCL, Arthritis and Torn Cartilage. ACL injury is because by changing direction rapidly, slowing down when running, and landing from a jump may cause tears in the ACL. Athletes who participate in skiing and basketball, and athletes who wear cleats, such as football players, are most likely to get ACL injuries.
Navel piercings which are quite common can often take the longest to heal (Lifescripts, 2006 p 2 para 5) Skin disorders can occur. Skin disorders from tattoos include keloids, raised skin with excessive scarring, and bumps called granulomas, both caused by the tattoo ink. (Lifescripts, 2006 p 3 para 1) Unsterilized needles can spread disease. The most serious risk is blood-borne diseases like hepatitis, tetanus and HIV/AIDS. (Lifescripts, 2006 p 3 para 2) Oral complications may also arise from tongue or lip piercings.
This report further elaborates the most common but fatal diseases on human body due to excessive alcohol intake. One of the diseases linked to excessive alcohol drinking is liver fibrosis that ultimately results in liver cirrhosis. In both these cases, the normal structure and function of the liver is altered by excessive disposition of extracellular matrix in liver. The liver looses its capability to perform its primary function: detoxification, which leads to further complications in a human body. Because of active cirrhosis, individuals are more susceptible to deadly infections such as hepatitis (Jamal & Morgan, 2003).
