Cystic fibrosis is an autosomal recessive gene disorder. This disease affects the lungs most significantly. It also affects the pancreas, liver, and intestines, and various organs. This disease is characterized by the buildup of thick, sticky mucus that can damage vital organs. This abnormal mucus can clog the airways which will lead to severe problems with breathing and bacterial infections in the lungs.
This results in inflammation causing swelling, increased blood flow, and ulcerations. In Crohn’s disease, these ulcerations go into the full thickness of the intestinal lining. This may lead to a narrowing of the bowel, which can lead to partial or total blockage of the intestinal flow, called bowel obstruction. Symptoms of intestinal obstruction include cramping around the mid-abdomen, frequently associated with vomiting. The abdomen may also become bloated and distended.
Serious complications, such as osteomyelitis (infection of the bone) or sepsis (infection carried through the blood) can occur. http://www.spinal-injury.net/spinal-injury-network/images/pressure-sore-stages.jpg Identify pressure sites of the body. 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. Identify factors which might put an individual at risk of skin breakdown and pressure sores. 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.
3. Discuss signs and symptoms of the clinical problem. Symptoms of appendicitis include dull pain that becomes sharp and moves to the lower right abdomen, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal swelling, fever, and inability to pass gas. 4. What type of surgery did the dancer have?
Unit 4222-229 Undertake agreed pressure area care (HSC 2024) 1.1 Pressure sores or decubitus ulcers are the result of a constant deficiency of blood to the tissues over a bony area such as a heel which may have been in contact with a bed or a splint over an extended period of time. The surface of the skin can ulcerate which may become infected. 1.2 Common pressure points on the body include the sacrum, hip bone areas, and the ankle and heel. Less common sites include the elbows, spine, ribs, and back of the head. Pressure sores may also result from friction caused by your skin rubbing against another surface, or when two layers of skin slide on each other, moving in opposite directions and causing damage to the underlying tissue.
It is usually in the form of vomiting and abdominal pain that can mimic necrotizing enterocolitis and may lead to delay in diagnosis. This happens because in intussusception peristalsis is disturbed and lymphatic and venous obstruction occurs causing ischaemia or perforation. In term neonates, symptoms are very similar to those of other causes of neonatal intestinal obstruction while in preterm neonates they are very similar to those of necrotizing
What are the symptoms of ascites? Abdominal pain, discomfort, and bloating are frequently seen as ascites becomes larger. Shortness of breath can also happen with large ascites due to increased pressure on the diaphragm and the migration of the fluid across the diaphragm causing pleural effusions (fluid around the lungs). A cosmetically disfiguring large belly, due to ascites, is also a common concern of some patients. How is ascites
A person who has these diseases could be embarrassed by symptoms such as constipation, stool leakage and urine leakage. These bowel and bladder dysfunctions are common in both Fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis (PubMed Health 1747) (PubMed Health
Some of its symptoms include weight loss, cramping, and diarrhea. Another type is jejunoileitis. With this type, fistulas may form in the affected area of the jejunum. This type also has diarrhea and cramping as symptoms ("Crohn's Disease," 2011). Gastroduodenal Crohn's disease occurs in the duodenum and the stomach.
In addition, having this type of anemia causes the red blood cells (RBCs) to become hard and pointed. Since hemoglobin (found inside RBCs) normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, anemia leads to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in organs. As a result, the RBCs function abnormally causing small blood clots, and can get stuck in the blood vessels. When this occurs, circulation in the blood
