Also known to cause TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome).Group A Streptococcus, this is a bacteria found in the throat or skin area. Signs and symptoms of impetigo are red sores that pop fast ooze for a couple days then crust itching, and painless fluid-filled blisters. Types of impetigo and their particular symptoms, Impetigo Contagiosa, also known as nonBullous Impetigo. This is the most common form of impetigo. It starts off as a red sore usually around the mouth region either ooze fluid or pus.
Your joint is surrounded by tissue called the synovium, which supports and protects it. The synovium makes fluid that helps the cartilage and bones of your joint move smoothly. When you have RA, your immune system attacks the synovium causing inflammation, or swelling, and other RA symptoms. Left untreated, an inflamed synovium can damage your cartilage and bone. When this happens, the muscles and tissues that surround the joint weaken.
D) loss of memory and motor control. 11. Poor dentition (number of teeth) in the older adult can lead to A) chronic kidney failure. B) poor overall
What are Aphthous mouth ulcers? Aphthous mouth ulcers also known as canker sores are painful sores that can occur anywhere inside the mouth. They are the most common type of mouth ulcer. At least 1 in 5 people can develop aphthous mouth ulcers at some stage in their life. Women are affected more often than men.
Overview Caffey disease, or infantile cortical hyperostosis, is a benign, rare, proliferating bone disease affecting infants. Caffey and Silverman first reported this disease as a distinct entity in 1945.  Classically, Caffey disease occurs in the early part of the first year of life (< 5 mo). It is characterized by a clinical triad (fever, soft-tissue swelling, hyperirritability) and a clinching radiographic picture of underlying cortical hyperostosis (thickening or bony expansion). In addition to the skeleton, the adjacent fascia, muscles, and connective tissues are also involved.
One of many reasons to visit a hospital is when you have strep throat. Strep throat is a bacterial infection in the throat and the tonsils. It is a most common infection caused by Streptococcus bacteria. Strep bacteria are very contagious and can be spread by nasal secretions and saliva. If it’s not treated, it can damage the heart and kidneys.
One cause of obstructive atelectasis is a mucus plug. Mucus plugs often occur during and after surgery. During surgery, drugs are given to make the lungs inflate less than they normally do, and as a result, secretions build up in the airways. Although suctioning these areas during surgery helps with clearing secretions, they may continue to build up
* Once blind it cannot be reversed. | Mouth, Throat and Nose | * Smoking causes black staining on teeth that may not go away for a long period of time. * Smoking causes Leukoplaka, this is a lesion in the mouth that can lead to cancer * smoking increases tooth decay, tooth loss and bad breath (Halitosis). * Smoking can also impair taste and sense of smell. * Smoking can cause Melanosis, this
These fluids collect in and around the alveoli, and the alveolar walls thicken. Both events seriously reduce gas exchange and lead to hypoxemia, interfering with oxygenation and possibly leading to death. The capillary leak spreads the infection to other areas of the lung. If the organisms move into the bloodstream sepsis occurs. (3) Etiology: Pneumonia develops when the immune system cannot combat the virulence of the invading organisms.
Women develop the disease three times as of often as men and normally contracted between the ages of 30 and 60 but can affect anybody at any age.  When rheumatoid arthritis affects a person it causes the white blood cells to travel to the synovium, the thin soft tissue found between the articular capsule and the joint cavity of synovial joints, and causes inflammation. Due to the inflammation, the synovium becomes thick and makes the joints swollen and puffy to the touch. The inflamed synovium invades and destroys the cartilage and bone within the joint. The surrounding muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support and stabilize the joint become weak; lose their shape and proper alignment.
