Does A Low Neutrophil Count Mean I Have Candida?
 
04:05
If I have low neutrophil count does that mean I have candida? Is low neutrophil count associated with candida overgrowth? Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker. I'm the author of Candida Crusher and I'm also the formulator of a range of supplements called Canxida. Thanks for checking out the video. I've got a question here from a guy called Pakreen in Amsterdam. Pak is asking me, "Does a low neutrophil count mean I have Candida?" Well, Pak. It doesn't necessarily mean you've got Candida, but it can certainly mean that you're going to be more susceptible to a yeast or bacterial infection. Low neutrophil count, another word we use for it is called neutropenia. What are neutrophils? Neutrophils are white blood cells and we've got two main types of cells in our blood. We've got red cells and white cells. There are different kinds of white cells. A very common one that makes up about 75 percent of all white blood cells is called neutrophils. Neutrophils are really like the marines. These guys are front line. These guys are hand-to-hand combat, so they're going to look for things like bacteria and they're going to attack the bacteria and they're going to engulf the bacteria. They're going to kill them. If bacteria bypass the neutrophil line or if bad guys get past the marines, then you need to have other guys in the back, you need soldiers in the background there basically to take up the slack. And then we're going to get other kinds of cells. It's going to get more complicated and we call them the lymphocytes. The neutrophils with mediate immunity and the lymphocytes or the specialty guys in the back, these are the artillery, and we will call them the humeral immunity. So you've got two main types of immune systems. The front end and the back end. Neutrophils make up the front line. If you're going to cut your finger and get bacteria in there, bugs into your system, ear, nose or throat or any way that you can ingest them, then neutrophils are going to help to take them out. If you've got a low count, you're going to be more susceptible to bacterial infections especially, but also fungal infections. If a doctor finds that you've got thrush in the mouth or you've got sores that don't heal or you've got fevers, temperatures and sweats and stuff, especially if you've got lumps and bumps around the body like lymph nodes that could be up. That could be a sign that you've got neutropenia, but also you've got a problem with the back end of the immune system. The lymphocytes could be problematic. Neutrophils themselves don't necessarily give us the same kind of signs in the lymphatic system that the lymphocytes do with lymph nodes. I hope that answers your question, Pak, about neutrophils. So how do we get low neutrophils? How does neutropenia occur in the body? Some people are genetically susceptible to neutropenia, so they're basically born with low neutrophils. That could be part of their genetic makeup. Many people, however, can get neutropenia from pharmaceutical medications. It's not uncommon to get them from recurring repeated rounds of antibiotics. Different heart medications. I know from experience that thyroid medications, propylthiouracil and carbimazole, for example, they can lower neutrophils by default. And different kinds of heart drugs, anti-arrhythmia drugs and blood pressure drugs can also have that similar effect on neutrophils. Of course, we classically get that with different chemotherapy treatments that can cause neutropenia. So you know if you're on medication and you've got neutropenia after you've been on medication, just do a Google search for that drug and check if there is any neutropenia involved. Just check for low neutrophils and then that pharmaceutical medicine to see if there is a link there. If you're worried, talk to your doctor about it. Because some drugs can make you more susceptible to getting fungal and bacterial infections and that's not a good idea. I hope that gives you a little bit of insight into low neutrophil count.

What happen if you take Antibiotics?
 
15:37
Resistant bacteria colonize in the gut travel to the surgical wounds and cause infection. Due to disruption of the good flora in the gut, for example with antibiotics use, it kills off not only bad bacteria, also the good bacteria as well. The bacteria that survive after the antibiotic effect live in dormant state residing in the gut. Neutrophils, one of the white blood cells acts like a scavenger and engulf the methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The MRSA is in dormant state residing inside the neutrophils. During physiological stress or inflammation, neutrophils travel to the surgical site and release the MRSA to surgical wound and cause infection. The study is from the University of Chicago. With the overuse of antibiotics , for example take Cipro for 5 days, it disrupt the microbiota in the body. The body takes about 6 to 9 months to re-populate the good flora and push out the resistance bacteria.

Causes of High White Blood Cells in children - Dr. Shaheena Athif
 
01:39
The White Blood Cells that is the WBC is usually produced in the body to fight certain infections. So they usually the WBC increases when there is any bacterial infection or post viral infection or any other inflammation as such may increase the WBC in the body. So usually after the WBC itself helps in the immunity of child and hence certain infection usually increases. But however other conditions such as the concerned drugs if the child is on prolonged use of steroids or any inhalers that is for the asthma this also may increase in WBC level in the body. Another important cause if there is any physical stress that is post caesura convection in a child and if there is any stress response or if there is any emotional stress in this children, this can also increase the WBC. Very rarely it is suggestive of any medical serious medical conditions like the blood cancer that is the leukaemia and lymphoma. So however any child usually has to be assessed and clinical examination properly before diagnosing what is the cause for the increase WBC.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Leukopenia is a decrease in the number of white blood cells (leukocytes) found in the blood, which places individuals at increased risk of infection. Neutropenia, a subtype of leukopenia, refers to a decrease in the number of circulating neutrophil granulocytes, the most abundant white blood cells. The terms leukopenia and neutropenia may occasionally be used interchangeably, as the neutrophil count is the most important indicator of infection risk. This should not be confused with agranulocytosis. Low white cell count may be due to acute viral infections, such as a cold or influenza. It has been associated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, myelofibrosis, aplastic anemia (failure of white cell, red cell and platelet production), stem cell transplant, bone marrow transplant, HIV, AIDS, and steroid use. Other causes of low white blood cell count include systemic lupus erythematosus, Hodgkin's lymphoma, some types of cancer, typhoid, malaria, tuberculosis, dengue, rickettsial infections, enlargement of the spleen, folate deficiencies, psittacosis, sepsis, Sjögren's syndrome and Lyme disease. It has also been shown to be caused by deficiency in certain minerals, such as copper and zinc. Pseudoleukopenia can develop upon the onset of infection. The leukocytes (predominately neutrophils, responding to injury first) start migrating toward the site of infection, where they can be scanned. Their migration causes bone marrow to produce more WBCs to combat infection as well as to restore the leukocytes in circulation, but as the blood sample is taken upon the onset of infection, it contains low amount of WBCs, which is why it is termed "pseudoleukopenia". Certain medications can alter the number and function of white blood cells. Medications that can cause leukopenia include clozapine, an antipsychotic medication with a rare adverse effect leading to the total absence of all granulocytes (neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils). The antidepressant and smoking addiction treatment drug bupropion HCl (Wellbutrin) can also cause leukopenia with long-term use. Minocycline, a commonly prescribed antibiotic, is another drug known to cause leukopenia. There are also reports of leukopenia caused by divalproex sodium or valproic acid (Depakote), a drug used for epilepsy (seizures), mania (with bipolar disorder) and migraine. The anticonvulsant drug, lamotrigine, has been associated with a decrease in white blood cell count. The FDA monograph for metronidazole states that this medication can also cause leukopenia, and the prescriber information suggests a complete blood count, including differential cell count, before and after, in particular, high-dose therapy. Immunosuppressive drugs, such as sirolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, tacrolimus, ciclosporin, leflunomide and TNF inhibitors, have leukopenia as a known complication. Interferons used to treat multiple sclerosis, such as interferon beta-1a and interferon beta-1b, can also cause leukopenia. Chemotherapy targets cells that grow rapidly, such as tumors, but can also affect white blood cells, because they are characterized by bone marrow as rapid growing. A common side effect of cancer treatment is neutropenia, the lowering of neutrophils (a specific type of white blood cell). Decreased white blood cell count may be present in cases of arsenic toxicity.

My White Blood Cell Count Is High, Is That Candida?
 
03:18
Check my range of candida supplements here: http://www.canxida.com/ White blood cell counts can be elevated for many reasons. Yeast issues can also cause elevations, but not commonly. I've got a question here. "My white blood cell count is high. Is that Candida?" White blood cells are a big part of the circulatory system. One of the primary roles is to maintain the body immune status, to keep it nice and even to stop infections, to stop things from taking off in the body, to help reduce the inflammatory responses in the body. The four key things often we find with white cell elevation are fungal infection, bacterial infection, viral infection, parasitic infection. Small amounts of fungi can make it into the body through leaky gut or even through breaking the skin barrier. This can cause a subtle elevation in white cell count. But you're not going to be finding Candida traveling around the bloodstream systemically quite a lot. Elevating the white cell count is often fungal infections if they're in the blood can cause extreme sickness with people and generally, you'll end up in the emergency room. A better way, in my opinion, to determine if you've got Candida is by doing a stool test. A stool test to me is the ultimate way to find out if you've got viable living yeast in your digestive system ranging from no growth up to four plus, like a very high count. That's the best way to determine it. White cell counts can be high for many, many reasons. Let's get that quite clear. If your white cell count is high, then we need to look further. What type of white blood cells? Are they basophils? Are they monocytes? Are they neutrophils? Are they eosinophils? What type of cells are we talking about here? The eosinophils are a white cell we find elevated with parasitic infections and allergies. Monocytes we find elevated with certain types of bacterial infections. Neutrophils are what we call the "foot soldiers or the Marines" of the immune system. They would make up 75 percent of white cell count. These guys are front line and their general response is to hit on bacteria. Bacteria are one of the biggest reasons why we get sick. More investigated is needed to be undertaken to conclude why the white cell count is elevated. Let's not jump to conclusions and say, "Yes, our white cell count is high. It's Candida." It probably isn't Candida. It's probably something else. White cell counts can be elevated for many reasons. Even with pregnancy, if you have a cut or a burn, if you're over exercising, if you're under stress, if you've had a heart attack, if you've got autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis, it be an elevation. Even with certain drugs it can elevate white cell count. There's no simple answer to this if it's Candida or not because it could well be another cause that needs investigating. There's no doubt white cell counts can be elevated due to Candida, but more investigation is needed to be undertaken to determine exactly what type of infection we're dealing with here. Generally, I wouldn't assume that it's Candida causing the white cell elevation. It's usually something else.

How Do You Know If You Have Systemic Candida?
 
04:09
Greetings! Eric Bakker. Naturopath. Author of Candida Crusher. Formulator of the CanXida range of supplements. Today we're going to talk about systemic yeast infection. How do you know if you've got a systemic yeast infection? You'll know. To start with, you won't be on this computer listening to this video, unless you're in a hospital bed. You'll probably have serious fever and chills and especially if they're non responsive to medication. As I mentioned in a previous video, this is a commonly confused area where a lot of people I see actually believe they've got systemic Candida. They haven't got systemic Candida at all. They've got a gastrointestinal yeast infection. I'm going to read out a list I've got up here of the people who are more prone to getting a systemic yeast infection. People with a central venous catheter put in the chest or in your neck if you're in hospital. You've got a line there. Often just by putting this line in alone makes you a sitting duck for a yeast infection. Many healthcare workers actually transfer Candida from one patient to another. Just being in a hospital alone significantly increases your risk of a systemic yeast infection. Don't go to the hospital. Try and keep out of these damn things. Patients in the Intensive Care Unit with a lot of invasive procedures have a higher risk. People who have weakened immune systems for example. Organ transplant, HIV/AIDS, on cancer chemotherapy. People who've taken broad spectrum antibiotics. Why would you even want to take antibiotics in the first place? I've talked many times how ridiculous it is that people get them for a cut on their finger and get put for 10 days on penicillin. Just use flipping tea tree oil. It's going to work. People who have a very low neutrophil count. Neutropenia is a condition we find often with people with suppressed immune function. This very commonly occurs with people on various medications. People who have kidney failure or are on hemodialysis are also at a higher risk. People who have got diabetes and also people who've had different kinds of surgeries are more prone. Have you noticed how a lot of these things I'm saying are linked with the medical system? Operations, medications. So once you get sick, there is a high chance you could get sicker and sicker. I believe that hospitals are not a good place to get well. It's good to stay out of the hospital. Hospitals have the potential to make you sicker. They're a great place for broken bones or if you've fallen while drunk and you've fallen off a balcony or something like that, then you need to go to hospital. You've cut your hand off with a power saw, then you need to go to hospital. Things like that. But be careful, because many medical procedures if you can avoid them, may be linked with seriously weakening your immune system and increasing your risk. There are many super infections in hospitals now. I can't tell you how many people I've seen that had a medical procedure who've come out of hospital, and who have never been well since. Could take six or twelve months to get them back in full health again. So, how do you know if you've got a systemic yeast infection? You're going to be seriously sick if you've got one. Chances are you probably won't have one, you'll have a gastrointestinal yeast infection, or you'll have a vaginal one or toenail or jock itch or other kind of skin infection, but you probably won't have one affecting you systemically. They diagnose by blood test. It'll be picked up in a couple of days. You'll get the lab report back. That's how you know if you've got one. I'd be careful of people who also believe they can diagnose yeast infection with live blood cell analysis. I don't really believe that it's possible to do that, and if you do go to a practitioner who does live blood cell analysis and tells you, "You've got Candida in your bloodstream!" I'd be very wary of those kinds of people, because I can't see a lot of science behind that.

How to Increase Your White Blood Cell Count
 
13:54
How to Increase Your White Blood Cell Count https://youtu.be/VYSzInSIoSQ Produced in the bone marrow, white blood cells (WBCs) are the disease-fighting agents of your immune system. A healthy body has an abundance of WBCs that travel to the affected organs whenever an infection strikes. The normal range of WBCs in the blood is between 4,500 and 10,000 per microliter. When the WBC count drops below 4,500, it is a cause for concern. This condition is called leukopenia. Another condition called neutropenia is a type of leukopenia and is characterized by a deficiency of neutrophil granulocytes, a specific type of white blood cells that are the most abundant in the body. Some common causes of leukopenia include acute viral infections such as a cold and influenza, copper and zinc deficiency, typhoid, dengue, malaria, tuberculosis and Lyme disease. Other causes include aplastic anemia; cancers such as bone cancer, which damages the bone marrow, and lymphoma, which is a cancer that begins in the WBCs; chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which disrupt bone marrow activity; and autoimmune diseases like lupus. Lack of adequate WBCs weakens your immune system, making you more susceptible to disease-causing bacteria and viruses. If the deficiency is not treated, these diseases will strengthen over time, rendering your body unable to fight the diseases at all. Here are top 10 ways to help increase the white blood cell count in your body. 1. Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa): Cat’s claw is a South American vine found in the rainforests in the Amazon that possesses incredible immune-boosting properties. 2. Astragalus: Also known as “huang qi” or “huang chi”, astragalus is a Chinese herb derived from the astragalus membranaceus plant. It possesses terrific WBC-promoting properties. 3. Echinacea: Echinacea is a well-researched, immune-boosting Native American herb. Unlike vaccines that target a specific disease and antibiotics that directly attack bacteria, echinacea stimulates the activity of the WBCs that fight diseases through a process called phagocytosis. 4. Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Dietary omega-3 fatty acids increase the body’s production of phagocytes, a type of WBCs that engulf harmful foreign entities like bacteria entering our bodies through a process called phagocytosis. 5. Vitamins B6, B12 and Folic Acid (Folate): Vitamins B6 and B12 as well as folic acid are all responsible for producing WBCs in the body. 6. Copper: Healthy adults have between 50 and 80 milligrams of copper in their blood. A copper deficiency leads to a number of disorders, including leukopenia.diagnosed with leukopenia must be tested for copper deficiency, as it is often a leading cause of the condition. 7. Zinc: It is no secret that zinc is a solid immune-booster. Because there were few studies on the correlation between zinc deficiency and reduction of WBCs, a rat study was conducted in 2009 and published in the Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology. 8. Regulated Exercise: Exercise significantly boosts immunity. It promotes blood circulation, including WBCs, to various parts of the body. 9. Yoga’s Cobra Pose: While all forms of yoga improve circulation and promote the body’s production of WBCs, the Cobra Pose (bhujangasana) in particular activates the thymus gland located behind the breastbone. The thymus gland produces disease-fighting T-cells. 10. Good Hygiene: If you have a low WBC count, it is imperative to practice good hygiene. This is a necessary to boost your immune system.

AGRANULOCYTOSIS Symptoms, Causes & Treatments
 
05:15
AGRANULOCYTOSIS Symptoms, Causes & Treatments OVERVIEW Granulocytes, also known as neutrophils, are white blood cells that make up part of a person’s immune system. These cells contain enzymes that can kill bacteria and other organisms and break down substances that may harm the body. Without granulocytes, a person has a higher risk of developing frequent or chronic (long-term) infections. Agranulocytosis (lack of granulocytes) is a condition in which the absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is less than 100 neutrophils per microliter of blood. Normally, there are at least 1500 neutrophils per microliter of blood. For granulocyte (neutrophil) counts between 100 and 1500 per microliter of blood, the term “granulocytopenia” or “neutropenia” is used. This means that too few neutrophils are present. The lower the neutrophil count and the longer it remains low, the greater the risk of developing a dangerous infection. SYMPTOMS Symptoms of agranulocytosis may include: • Sores in the mouth, throat, or gastrointestinal tract. • Chronic infections of the gums, throat, or skin. • Fever. • Chills. • A life-threatening drop in blood pressure, which may cause weakness or lightheadedness. CAUSES Agranulocytosis may be acquired or inherited. In the acquired form, either the bone marrow cannot produce enough stem cells that mature into granulocytes, or granulocytes are destroyed more quickly than they can be replaced. Usually, other cell types, such as red cells or platelets, are affected, also. There are many different causes of acquired agranulocytosis. These include: • Chemotherapy to treat cancer. • The use of some prescription drugs, particularly certain antibiotics, and anti-thyroid and anti-psychotic medications. • Exposure to toxic substances, such as arsenic or mercury. • Bone marrow failure disorders such as aplastic anemia. • Other medical conditions, such as tumors or some autoimmune diseases. The congenital (present at birth) form of agranulocytosis is caused by a genetic (inherited) abnormality. Infantile genetic agranulocytosis (Kostmann disease) is a rare form of the inherited disease that is present in newborns. TREATMENTS Agranulocytosis can be treated in a number of ways: Stopping a medication that is believed to cause the disease: The doctor may tell you to stop taking the drug for a while to see if you improve. Recovery usually occurs within 10 to 14 days. A different medication may be substituted for the original. If there is no substitute, and your condition is not severe, you might be told to take the drug again while your doctor watches you closely. Antibiotics: These drugs may be used to prevent bacterial infections, and are used to treat infections that have developed. Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor: If other methods do not work, you might need to take shots of a hormone that stimulates the bone marrow to produce more granulocytes. This hormone is known as granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and is made by the body. There is also a synthetic (man-made) version. Studies show that G-CSF can reduce the seriousness of neutropenia (low number of neutrophils) in patients with some cancers. Immune suppression: When an autoimmune cause is suspected, immune-suppressing medications such as prednisone may be used. Bone marrow transplants: For cases that do not respond to other types of treatment, a bone marrow transplant may be needed (if a donor can be found). Bone marrow transplants generally yield the best outcomes for patients who are under 40 years old and in good health. General measures: People with agranulocytosis should stay away from crowds. They should also avoid: contact with people who have infections; fruits and vegetables that cannot be peeled, and; cut flowers or working in the soil.

Neutropenic Sepsis
 
09:30
Neutropenic sepsis is a medical emergency and complication of cancer treatment, usually chemotherapy. It is thought to be brought about through a combination of the effect of chemotherapy in supressing the bone marrow, and in turn the production of white blood cells, as well as the breakdown of the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, allowing for bacteria to enter the blood stream. It is a medical emergency, and patients with suspected neutropenic sepsis should receive broad spectrum, empirical antibiotics no later than 1 hour after arriving at hospital.
BACTERIA  ,antibiotics - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim, M.D.
 
05:43
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video explaining about Bacterial infection. Why do open fractures have increased risk for infection? The presence of bacteria within an open wound increases the risk of colonization when hardware is used. Once the hardware is colonized, the bacteria grows rapidly. During the rapid growth phase, the bacteria secretes a polysaccharide sugar layer, called a “biofilm”, or slime layer that encases the bacteria. This biofilm provides protection to the bacteria against the body’s defenses and antibiotics. Within the biofilm, there are channels that allow the bacteria to pass nutrients, messaging signals, and even DNA to each other. The bacteria pass on their DNA by: 1.Transformation 2.Transduction 3.Conjugation Transformation is when a bacterial cell ruptures, releasing its DNA, which is then taken in by another bacteria. Transduction occurs when DNA is transferred from one bacterium to another by a virus. Phage DNA and proteins are made and bacterial chromosomes are broken up, completing the gene transfer. The phage release themselves from the host, carrying either bacterial or phage DNA. Conjugation occurs when two bacteria attach themselves together with a sex pilus and exchange their DNA. So, how does the bacteria become resistant to antibiotics? The bacteria can alter the genes they express by as much as 50-60%. By doing this, the bacteria can produce enzymes such as beta-lactamases, which destroy certain antibiotics before they can reach their target site. They can also make Efflux pumps which expel antibacterial agents from the cell before it can reach its target site. Finally, by expressing different genes, the bacterial cell wall can be altered to no longer contain the binding site of the antibiotic agent. Because the antibiotics cannot break through the biofilm and access the bacteria, the bacterium in the biofilm can become up to a thousand times more resistant to the antibiotics by the different mechanisms previously discussed. So, if there is biofilm on the hardware, what can the physician do? The only proven treatment, is to remove the hardware and wash the wound. However, removal of the hardware is a problem if the fracture is not healed and the fixation is needed. The physician may decide to suppress the infection, leaving the hardware until the fracture has improved. Or, the physician may decide the remove the hardware and seek an alternative method for stabilizing the fracture, such as an external fixator, and then using a biological material to help heal the fracture. These are the issues that make infection with hardware so complex!

Dental abscess - causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, pathology
 
08:19
What is a dental abscess? Dental abscesses are a mix of immune cells, pathogens such as bacteria like viridans group Streptococcus, and dead tissue. Because there’s no blood supply to the middle of an abscess to deliver antibiotics, it usually needs to be cut open so that the pus can drain out. For periapical abscess, a root canal treatment or extraction has to be performed on the offending tooth. Find our complete video library only on Osmosis Prime: http://osms.it/more.

Folate & B12 Deficiency, Megaloblastic Anemia Hypersegmented Macrocytic Methylmalonic
 
13:14
http://www.stomponstep1.com/folate-b12-deficiency-megaloblastic-anemia-hypersegmented/ Vitamin B9 (Folate/Folic Acid) is very important for 1 carbon chemical reactions (AKA methylation) during the creation of DNA. These functions are particularly important in tissues that undergo frequent cellular division (like hematopoietic cells) and during periods of rapid cellular division (such as infancy and pregnancy). Folate is found naturally in leafy vegetables and Folium is the Latin word for leaf. Today many grains are also fortified with Folate. With so many items having Folate added a deficiency from decreased intake of Folate is not very common. Usually a deficiency is caused by an increased demand for folate through pregnancy or hemolytic anemias such as Sickle Cell Disease. Folate deficiencies in pregnant women are linked with the occurrence of Neural Tube Defects in the fetus. A deficiency can also be caused by drugs that inhibit the pathways that Folate is involved in such as Trimethoprim (antibiotic) and Methotrexate (Chemotherapy). A Folate deficiency primarily causes anemia (decreased red blood cells). Anemias can present with a wide range of symptoms including weakness, fatigue, pale skin and shortness of breath. Folate Deficiency causes a specific type of Anemia called Macrocytic/Megaloblstic Anemia where the size (Mean Corpuscular Volume) of the red blood cells increased. This is because as the creation of DNA is inhibited the cell cycle in the hematopoietic cells is stalled. Cellular division is stopped but the cell continues to grow resulting in a smaller number of cells which are larger than normal cells. Patients with this type of anemia also often present with Hypersegmented Neutrophils on a blood smear, which is a neutrophil with 5 or more "segments" in the nucleus. You are also going to see an elevation of Homocysteine levels in Folate Deficiency. This is because B12 needs to receive a methyl group from Folate so it can pass it on to Homocysteine to create Methionine. Less Folate means B12 doesn't have a methyl group to pass on and Homocysteine builds up. Unlike B12 deficiencies, Folate deficiency does not result in a buildup of Methylmalonic Acid or neurological symptoms. Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) is a vitamin, like Folate, that is important for 1 carbon chemical reactions. B12 is found in many animal products and Vegans are at the highest risk of deficiency. B12 taken in through the diet is bound to proteins. Stomach acid and digestive enzymes must first separate B12 from the proteins. If there is a deficiency of stomach acid due to disease or medication (like proton pump inhibitors or antacids) it can cause decreased absorption and B12 deficiency. Once it is no longer protein bound, B12 binds Intrinsic Factor which is released by the Parietal Cells in the stomach. Intrinsic Factor then chaperones the B12 to the terminal ileum where it is absorbed. Pernicious Anemia is the autoimmune destruction of parietal cells which leads to less Intrinsic Factor production. Less intrinsic factor means less B12 absorption and B12 deficiency. Damage to the terminal ileum, such as in Crohn's Disease, can also inhibit B12 absorption. Folate and B12 work closely together handing off methyl groups to each other. It is sort of like a game of hot potato. Folate doesn't "want" the methyl group so it passes it on to B12. B12 doesn't "want" it either so it passes it off to methionine. In effect, B12 helps recycle methyltetrahydrofolate back into tetrohydrofolate which can be used to create DNA. This means that a deficiency of B12 can cause a deficiency of Folate as less Folate is being recycled into its "active" form. Therefore, B12 deficiency present very similarly to Folate deficiency. You get Macrocytic/Megaloblastic Anemia with Hypersegmented Neutrophils and increased Homocysteine levels. If you mistakenly diagnose Folate Deficiency when it is really B12 Deficiency the patient will get better with Folate supplementation, but permanent neurological damage will be done overtime. Odd chain fatty acids are broken down to eventually give Methylmalonyl CoA. B12 is a cofactor in the process that converts methylmalonyl CoA into Succinyl CoA which can then be used in the TCA cycle to generate energy. If there is not enough B12 this reaction is slowed and Methylmalonic Acid builds up. This Methylmalonic Acid build up is toxic to neurons and leads to demyelination in the posterior and lateral columns of the spinal cord. This is called Subacute Combined Degeneration and presents with peripheral numbness/tingling, spasticity, and loss of vibration and proprioception.

5 Foods That Will Destroy Your Immune System Thanks For Watching This Video: 5 Foods That Will Destroy Your Immune System : https://youtu.be/k5avquOsGrU Don't forget to Subscribe for updates: https://www.youtube.com/c/HealthandWellnessYT The immune system is a very strong network that is made of tissues, cells and other organs that help protect your body. As there are foods the help boost your immune system, there are also foods that can affect the functions of the immune system. Below are some of these foods. 1. Alcohol Taking excess alcohol is very harmful to your immune system, it reduces the white blood cells in your body that helps kill germs. 2. Sugar Eating too much of sugar can decrease the capacity of white platelets to eliminate germs, the processing of sugar begins under thirty minutes after ingestion and may keep going for five hours. Interestingly, the ingestion of complex sugars or starches, has no impact on the invulnerable framework. 3. Red meat Studies have found out that red meat leads to the risky response that can debilitate the immune system, it originates from a specific sugar in red meat that our bodies can’t process and this sugar can cause a lot of other medical issues. So eating too much of red meat is not good for your immune system. 4. Junk foods Most junk foods are full of bad cholesterol that can lead to inflammation and eventually will reduce the strength of your immune system. 5. Soda Most soda has no good nutrients like enough vitamin A, magnesium or calcium, so drinking them can be likened to you destroying your immune system, the phosphoric acid found in soda deplete magnesium and calcium in your body. You have to be mindful of the foods you eat and how you eat them because you might just end up destroying your immune system without knowing you are. Learn to have a healthy meal planned out and it should be in the right amount, because if your immune system is destroyed then there is a higher chance of you experiencing many health issues. So best thing to do is just to eat right and healthy so you can live longer and fit.

How to Increase Your White Blood Cell Count-Haematology White Blood Cell Count
 
04:37
How to Increase Your White Blood Cell Count-Haematology White Blood Cell Count Produced in the bone marrow, white blood cells (WBCs) are the disease-fighting agents of your immune system. A healthy body has an abundance of WBCs that travel to the affected organs whenever an infection strikes. The normal range of WBCs in the blood is between 4,500 and 10,000 per microliter. When the WBC count drops below 4,500, it is a cause for concern. This condition is called leukopenia. Another condition called neutropenia is a type of leukopenia and is characterized by a deficiency of neutrophil granulocytes, a specific type of white blood cells that are the most abundant in the body. 1. Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) Cat’s claw is a South American vine found in the rainforests in the Amazon that possesses incredible immune-boosting properties. A 2001 study published in Phytomedicine notes that when 12 healthy adult subjects were administered daily doses of cat’s claw water extract supplements for 12 weeks, they experienced an increased production of leukocytes. Studies also have demonstrated the efficacy of cat’s claw consumption in patients who had a low WBC count post chemotherapy. However, cancer patients should consult their doctors before consuming this herb, as it is known to have promoted survival of leukemic cells in lab conditions. Note: Consult your doctor before consuming this herb if you are on any kind of medication. If you take blood thinners, use cat’s claw with caution as it could induce bleeding. 2. Astragalus Also known as “huang qi” or “huang chi”, astragalus is a Chinese herb derived from the astragalus membranaceus plant. It possesses terrific WBC-promoting properties. A 2006 study published in Phytotherapy Research notes that when patients consumed astragalus separately and in combination with other herbs for seven days, the activity of the immune cells was strengthened. While astragalus does not eliminate cancer from its roots, it significantly boosts the immune systems of cancer patients by promoting phagocytosis in the existing WBCs. A 2006 study published in Cancer Letters notes that the astragalus membranaceus plant exhibits T-cell-boosting properties in cancer patients. T-cells are the body’s vital immunity-boosting WBCs. Astragalus is available as tablet or capsule supplements, as a tincture (alcohol extract) and prescribed by some doctors in an injectable form. Note: Consult your doctor before taking this herb for any possible side effects and drug interactions. 3. Echinacea Echinacea is a well-researched, immune-boosting Native American herb. Unlike vaccines that target a specific disease and antibiotics that directly attack bacteria, echinacea stimulates the activity of the WBCs that fight diseases through a process called phagocytosis. A 2005 study published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics notes that 11 healthy individuals (between 26 and 61 years old) who consumed two echinacea tablets daily for 14 days experienced an increase in the overall number of WBCs and stimulated activity of leucocytes. Note: Patients who have liver disorders or diabetes should consult their doctors before consuming this herb. Consult your doctor if you are on any kind of medication before consuming this herb. If you take blood thinners, use echinacea with caution as it could induce bleeding. 4. Omega-3 Fatty Acids Dietary omega-3 fatty acids increase the body’s production of phagocytes, a type of WBCs that engulf harmful foreign entities like bacteria entering our bodies through a process called phagocytosis. A 2001 study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention notes that the levels of WBCs in female volunteers increased when they took dietary fatty acids. In addition, a 2013 study published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology notes that fish oil consumption promotes the activity of a type of WBCs called B cells. Foods with the highest omega-3 fatty acid content include flaxseed oil, fish oil, chia seeds, walnuts, salmon, oysters, spinach and soybeans. 5. Vitamins B6, B12 and Folic Acid (Folate) Vitamins B6 and B12 as well as folic acid are all responsible for producing WBCs in the body. A 2011 study published in the Journal of Medical Case Reports notes that a neutropenia patient reported significantly decreased levels of vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid. Oral vitamin B6 supplementation increased the level of neutrophil WBCs and corrected her condition. Severe neutropenia can cause cancer. The study further suggests a thorough screening for deficiencies of vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid in neutropenia patients for focused treatment. Foods rich in vitamin B6 include sunflower seeds, turkey, chicken, dried nuts, avocados, bananas and spinach.

Striking MRSA Where It Hides
 
04:01
We’ve all heard about the growing threat of multi-drug resistant bacteria, or so-called “superbugs” – and it’s pretty scary. These pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria cause serious and sometimes deadly infections and they can become resistant to even antibiotics of ‘last resort’. One of these pathogenic bacteria is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA for short. MRSA can cause serious and sometimes fatal bloodstream or tissue infections, often when someone is in the hospital. In this video, Genentech scientists answer a nagging question about treating MRSA infections - namely why are these infections so hard to treat, even when the bacteria are sensitive to the antibiotics? It’s long been suspected that a small number of MRSA hides in a compartment of our own immune cells protected from antibiotics. The bacteria then use our own immune system as a “Trojan horse” to spread the infection after the course of antibiotics is over. The video also describes a way to take advantage this phenomenon to strike MRSA where it hides.

This part discusses it important infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Very use full, beautiful and highly comprehensive illustration. Hopefully U would not get bored by watching this microbiology topic as u usually get with microbiology items. U would get so much interesting information that are all clinically relevant. Watch next three parts as well and please appreciate this piece of work with your precious suggestions and comments so that i may upload more and much improved medical illustration videos.Thanks Team MEDICAL VIDEO ILLUSTRATIONS Pathogenesis Phagocytosis of P. aeruginosa by neutrophil in patient with bloodstream infection (Gram stain) An opportunistic, nosocomial pathogen of immunocompromised individuals, P. aeruginosa typically infects the airway, urinary tract, burns, and wounds, and also causes other blood infections.[17] It is the most common cause of infections of burn injuries and of the outer ear (otitis externa), and is the most frequent colonizer of medical devices (e.g., catheters). Pseudomonas can be spread by equipment that gets contaminated and is not properly cleaned or on the hands of healthcare workers.[18] Pseudomonas can, in rare circumstances, cause community-acquired pneumonias,[19] as well as ventilator-associated pneumonias, being one of the most common agents isolated in several studies.[20] Pyocyanin is a virulence factor of the bacteria and has been known to cause death in C. elegans by oxidative stress. However, research indicates salicylic acid can inhibit pyocyanin production.[21] One in ten hospital-acquired infections are from Pseudomonas. Cystic fibrosis patients are also predisposed to P. aeruginosa infection of the lungs. P. aeruginosa may also be a common cause of "hot-tub rash" (dermatitis), caused by lack of proper, periodic attention to water quality. Since these bacteria like moist environments, such as hot tubs and swimming pools, they can cause skin rash or swimmer's ear.[18] Pseudomonas is also a common cause of postoperative infection in radial keratotomy surgery patients. The organism is also associated with the skin lesion ecthyma gangrenosum. P. aeruginosa is frequently associated with osteomyelitis involving puncture wounds of the foot, believed to result from direct inoculation with P. aeruginosa via the foam padding found in tennis shoes, with diabetic patients at a higher risk.
Efferocytosis of M. tuberculosis-Infected Neutrophils by Macrophages
 
01:56
Human neutrophils labeled with SP-DiOC (green, for mCherry) or SP-DiI (red, for GFP) were infected with M. tuberculosis at MOI 1 for 16 hr and then added to uninfected monocyte-derived macrophages. The cells were recorded every 2 min for 24 hr. For additional details, see Dallenga et al. (http://www.cell.com/cell-host-microbe/fulltext/S1931-3128(17)30391-8).

Acne Treatment with Topical Antibiotics
 
04:30
Pathogenesis of inflammation P. acnes is found in low numbers on normal skin and is probably not infectious. The bacteria may be the primary factor in the production of inflammatory acne. The mixture of abnormally desquamated cells and excessive amounts of sebum in the microcomedo provides a lipid rich environment for bacteria to thrive. They produce neutrophil chemotactic factors and stimulate neutrophils to release lysosomal enzymes. These proinflammatory mediators attack the microcomedo follicular wall and contribute to the formation of inflammatory lesions. Acne improves when the P. acnes numbers are reduced. P. acnes is sensitive to many antibiotics. The problem is to deliver antibiotics into the lipid-rich environment of the sebaceous follicles where the organism is proliferating. Topical and oral antibiotics are used alone or in combination with topical retinoids. Retinoids disrupt the microcomedo. Benzoyl peroxide Benzoyl peroxide is an effective non-specific antimicrobial agent. It penetrates sebum and suppresses the growth of P. acnes more effectively than topical clindamycin and erythromycin. It has only a weak effect on inflammation and little comedolytic activity. It does not stimulate bacterial resistance like erythromycin and clindamycin. Product formulations include gels, creams, lotions, cleansers and bar soaps. It is available in available in 2.5, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10 percent formulations. Sulfoxyl strong and Sulfoxyl regular are 10 and 5 percent formulations of benzoyl peroxide that contain sulfur. They are antibacterial and keratolytic and can be very effective for patients with pustular acne and oily skin. PB causes concentration-dependent irritation, erythema and dryness. It has the potential to cause allergic contact dermatitis. Suspect this side effect when patients complain of the acute onset of erythema and itching at a higher intensity that would be expected from just irritation from the base. Benzoyl peroxide can bleach clothing. Benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin Benzoyl peroxide is available as a 5 percent gel in combination with erythromycin called Benzamycin. There are two benzoyl peroxide clindamycin combination products. Benzaclin is available in a jar. Duac is available in a tube. These combination products result in greater reductions in inflammatory lesions and comedones at 16 weeks when compared to monotherapy with clindamycin. BP helps to reduce the emergence to resistant variants of P. acnes. Clindamycin Clindamycin is effective as monotheryapy for short periods of treatment. Products include solution, lotions, gels and pledgets. It can be especially effective when used as combination therapy with retinoids such as tretinoin, tazarotene, and adapalene. If use for longer than 3 months is required than switch to a combination benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin product to avoid the problems of bacterial resistance to clindamycin.

Main Causes Of Yeast Infections
 
11:17
To explain a bit more about the causes, it probably would be good to explain that I find that there are two types of causes with people. What I call the exciting cause and what I call the maintaining cause. The exciting cause is what really starts off the yeast infection; what begins it all. Because when you think about it, something had to cause the whole problem. It had to start for some reason. You didn't just wake up one day and "Oh, I got a yeast infection." It developed and something helped it along. Something created this yeast infection. That's called the exciting cause. If you've had a yeast infection for many years, like a chronic one, it may be hard to remember the exciting cause. We'll come back to that later. The second cause is the maintaining cause. This is what you're doing continually to keep it going. This could be a food or a drink or a lifestyle habit that's contributing to this continuation of the yeast infection. It's important if I'm going to help you permanently eradicate a yeast infection that you address both the exciting and the maintaining causes. Let's talk a little bit about the 11 types of causes which I commonly see in the clinic. The first one is antibiotics drugs. Antibiotics probably are the biggest cause of any yeast infection. And not just of yeast infections, but of many different diseases we have today. I think they're the scourge of pharmaceutical drugs. While so necessary in many cases, I believe they're completely overprescribed and given far too judiciously and handed out like candy to children. In fact, too many people get antibiotics for too many silly reasons. I've been in my business now 25 years and I routinely get mothers coming in, they bring a child in who's had a script for penicillin for seven days for a tiny little cut on the finger or something ridiculous like that; that tea tree oil could solve. If you're one of these people who routinely takes antibiotics, you could be in for a rude awakening. You need to be careful of antibiotics because they certainly create a lot of problems in the body. We don't call them "antibiosis" or "antilife" for no reason. They kill life. They kill a lot of beneficial life. And if you keep taking these drugs, you'll find that bacteria and yeast will become increasingly resistant to the effects of them. It'll be harder and harder for you to counter these bugs down the track. I've raised my four children on no antibiotics at all. They've never had antibiotics and they're in great health. We've always relied on herbal medicines and homeopathies and other treatments, and we've had fantastic results. Then when the kids do get a sore throat or they get sick, we'll give them herbs. We'll do salt water gargles; they'll quickly recover within two days. I've never resorted to these drugs and I don't think that you should jump into them in a hurry. I think you need to be careful about what you're doing. Antibiotics are the prime cause of many yeast infections. I've seen thousands of people come to me who've never been well since a prescription of an antibiotic. The second one is antibiotics in meat. Little do you know that the pork you're eating or the chicken or the beef could well have drugs in it, antibiotics? We know the growth hormone is used in many animals, pork and beef particularly, to stimulate growth. But what you may not be aware of is chicken get loads of antibiotics. If you're buying commercial poultry, it'll be full of antibiotics. The poultry industry will tell you that these drugs are safe, but I can tell you now, they're not safe at all. They cram these chickens into small cages, keep them in the dark, and feed them on high protein foods. They spray antibiotic sprays on the food. If you eat chicken routinely, you're going to get a good load of antibiotics. You need to buy free range or preferably have your own poultry or get free-range birds, and at least you can be there to ensure that you're not going to be taking in drugs continually. Inherited or underlying immune dysfunction. Many people I see come to me with asthma or hay fever or these sort of conditions that their father or mother or somebody else had. They could have inherited a gene there predisposing them to an immune weakness. Other people present with -- when we do blood tests -- things like neutropenia or a very low neutrophil count; something else I regularly see. Others I see have got B-12 deficiencies or folate or iron deficiencies which can predispose them to a weakened immune system. If you've got a weak immune system to start with, imagine you take antibiotics on top of that; you're going to be literally a sitting duck for a Candida yeast infection. A good strong immune system is going to help fight the yeast infection. Just like a good defense force will help to keep a lot of terrorists and invaders out of the country. Read more on my website.

Community Acquired Pneumonia for USMLE Step 2
 
42:45
Community Acquired Pneumonia Pneumonia is defined as infection of Lung Parenchyma. CLASSIFICATION OF PNEUMONIA Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) Hospital Acquired Pneumonia - During or after hospital stay or associated with ventilator. These types of pneumonia tend to have organisms that are much more resistant. Healthcare Associated Pneumonia are patient in nursing home, long term facility as well as patient in acute care hospital for more than 2 days in the past 90 days, IV therapy, woundcare and IV chemo wihtin the last 30 dyas and hemodialysis within the last 30 days. PATHOGENESIS OF COMMUNITY ACQUIRED PNEUMONIA Most common cause is microaspiration which overhwelm host defense, hematogenous, direct spread, and macroaspiration (Decrease gag, cough reflex) may all lead to pneumonia. MICROBIOLOGY OF PNEUMONIA TYPICAL Pneumonia tends to be more severe type of pneumonia. There tends to be more consolidation and mucupurulent sputum. Classic bacteria that causes pneumonia is Streptococcus pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella Pneumonia, Psueodmonas Aeroginosa, Hemophilus Influenza and Moraxella Catarrhalis. ATYPICAL Pneumonia is less severe and also referred to as walking pneumonia and invades the epithelial cells and does not affect the alveoli wall. There is patchy diffuse and decrease sputum. Extrapulmonary symptoms is also common such as myalgia bradycardia splenomegaly, rash and CNS Symptoms. Non zoonotic causes include Mycoplasma, chalmydia pneumonia and Legionella which are all intracelular. Zoonotic is psitococas, Q Fever, and Tularemia. MOre commonly viruses such as influenza, parainfluenza and RSV and adenovirus. RISK FACTORS FOR PNEUMONIA Alcoholism - S. Pneumonia, oral anerobes, Klebsiella pneumonia and TB COPD/Smoking - S.

Signs - tachycardia, RR more than 24 Auscultation audible crackles. Consolidation - dullness to percussion, Bronchial breathing increase vocal fremitus, Egophany Labs - leukocytosis leftward shift, Anemia X-Ray shows consolidation in lobar pneumonia and interstitial pneumonia shows a much more diffuse reticular picture. CT-Scan - no evidence that CT Scan improves outcome DETERMINE PATHOGEN OF PNEUMONIA Outpatient not necessary unless critical agent such as legionella, influenza, MERS-COV, CA-MRSA, Bioterrorism. Severe Pneumonia or ICU patient perform sputum, blood culture, urine antigen test, PCR, Serology, ELISA, Immunofluorescence. Biomarkers procalcitonin helps determine for use of anti-biotics. CRP greater than 40mg/L suggest bacterial. Blood cultures are difficult to get true positive result. S. Pneumonia and H. Influenza have a higher false neg becuase grow easier, while S. aurues and GNB has a high false positive. Shoudl have greater than 25 neutrophils and less that 10 squamous epithelium. MANAGEMENT OF PNEUMONIA PNEUMONIA SEVERITY INDEX - rarely used CURB-65- Confusion, Uremia, Respiratory Rate, BP less than 90 and age over 65. ICU if septic shock, mechanical ventilation requirements. ANTI-BIOTICS Outpatient - Macrolide or doxycycline Comorbidities - add flouroquinolone or Betalactam with macrolide After pathogen identification than base on sensitivity.

Staphylococcus aureus & Exposure Risks
 
03:33
Staphylococcus aureus, commonly referred to as staph, is a type of bacteria that has long been recognized as a cause of disease in humans. It is commonly found on the skin and hair as well as in the nose and throat of people and animals. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 30% of people carry Staphylococcus aureus in their noses. Although most of the time it does not cause harm, it can sometimes cause infections. These range from minor skin infections to more serious infections that can even be fatal in some circumstances. This can be especially true in healthcare settings where patients may have a weakened immune system or have undergone medical procedures that make them more susceptible to infections. These infections may include: • Bacteremia or sepsis when bacteria spread to the bloodstream. • Pneumonia, which predominantly affects people with underlying lung disease. • Endocarditis, which can lead to heart failure or stroke. • Osteomyelitis, which can be caused by staph bacteria traveling in the bloodstream or put there by direct contact following trauma. Staph bacteria can also become resistant to certain antibiotics. These drug-resistant staph infections include: • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) • Vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus (VISA) • Vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA) Anyone can develop a staph infection, although certain groups of people are at greater risk. These include people with chronic conditions such as diabetes, cancer, vascular disease, eczema and lung disease. Staph is frequently spread to others by contaminated hands and person to person contact. Staph can also cause food poisoning if a food handler contaminates food and then the food is not properly refrigerated. Other sources of food contamination may include the equipment and surfaces on which food is prepared as staph can multiply quickly at room temperature. These are just a few things to know about Staphylococcus aureus. To learn more about this or other environmental, health and safety issues, please visits the websites shown in the video.

It explores the brain, spinal cord and related pathologies such as closed-head injuries, whiplash, headaches, dyslexia, cerebral palsy, cognitive behavioral dysfunctions, learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease. Students will learn specific techniques to release brain-centered restrictions as well as the damaging effects that these restrictions cause. These are advanced classes that use a slightly different paradigm by working extensively with the brain parenchyma, grey and white matter, cranial and spinal nerves and vascular structures rather than mainly concentrating on the cranial bones and membranes. The body often aligns itself around these precise structures and they are frequently unaddressed key/dominant tissue restrictions. Many topics are covered including 1- Cranial bones (intraosseous and interosseous lesions), 2- Cranial membranes in all anatomical directions 3- Fluid: 3 distinct compartments A- Subarachnoid spaces and cerebral cisterns B- Brain parenchyma and the glymphatic system C- Ventricles 4- Grey Matter: 3 and 6 layered cortex and brain nuclei 5- White Matter: 3 types of organization 6- Electro-magnetic field (EMF) of the brain 7- Emotions, mental or spiritual dimensions as well

The end of superbugs? Medieval remedy kills up to 90 percent of MRSA bacteria in test
 
01:19
UK Scientists successfully recreated and used a thousand-year-old Anglo Saxon remedy to kill hospital superbug MRSA. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as the superbug MRSA, is a bacteria resistant to many antibiotics. It can cause skin infections and more severe problems such as bloodstream infections and pneumonia in patients in hospitals or nursing homes, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Scientist from the University of Nottingham used a thousand-year-old remedy for eye infections to tackle MRSA. The remedy included garlic, leek, English wine, cow bile and 'brass vessels', which scientists replaced with brass sheets as they are easier to sterilise, according to New Scientist. The potion self-sterilised and killed all the bacteria brought by the leek and garlic soil after nine days of stewing. It was then tested on scraps of mice skin infected with MRSA. The result shows it killed 90 per cent of the bacteria, New Scientist reported. -----------------------------------------­-------------------- Welcome to TomoWorld, where we animate the biggest headlines from around the world.

What is ENDOMETRITIS? What does ENDOMETRITIS mean? ENDOMETRITIS meaning & explanation

What is ENDOMETRITIS? What does ENDOMETRITIS mean? ENDOMETRITIS meaning - ENDOMETRITIS pronunciation - ENDOMETRITIS definition - ENDOMETRITIS explanation - How to pronounce ENDOMETRITIS? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Endometritis is inflammation of the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus. Pathologists have traditionally classified endometritis as either acute or chronic: acute endometritis is characterized by the presence of microabscesses or neutrophils within the endometrial glands, while chronic endometritis is distinguished by variable numbers of plasma cells within the endometrial stroma. The most common cause of endometritis is infection. Symptoms include lower abdominal pain, fever and abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge. Caesarean section, prolonged rupture of membranes and long labor with multiple vaginal examinations are important risk factors. Treatment is usually with broad-spectrum antibiotics. The term "endomyometritis" is sometimes used to specify inflammation of the endometrium and the myometrium. Acute Endometritis is characterized by infection. The organisms most often isolated are believed to be because of compromised abortions, delivery, medical instrumentation, and retention of placental fragments. There is not enough evidence for the use of prophylactic antibiotics to prevent endometritis after manual removal of placental in vaginal birth. Histologically, neutrophilic infiltration of the endometrial tissue is present during acute endometritis. The clinical presentation is typically high fever and purulent vaginal discharge. Menstruation after acute endometritis is excessive and in uncomplicated cases can resolve after 2 weeks of clindamycin and gentamicin IV antibiotic treatment. In certain populations, it has been associated with Mycoplasma genitalium and pelvic inflammatory disease. Chronic Endometritis is characterized by the presence of plasma cells in the stroma. Lymphocytes, eosinophils, and even lymphoid follicles may be seen, but in the absence of plasma cells, are not enough to warrant a histologic diagnosis. It may be seen in up to 10% of all endometrial biopsies performed for irregular bleeding. The most common organisms are Chlamydia trachomatis (chlamydia), Neisseria gonorrhoeae (gonorrhea), Streptococcus agalactiae (Group B Streptococcus), Mycoplasma hominis, tuberculosis, and various viruses. Most of these agents are capable of causing chronic pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Patients suffering from chronic endometritis may have an underlying cancer of the cervix or endometrium (although infectious cause is more common). Antibiotic therapy is curative in most cases (depending on underlying cause), with fairly rapid alleviation of symptoms after only 2 to 3 days. Chronic granulomatous endometritis is usually caused by tuberculous. The granulomas are small, sparse, and without caseation. The granulomas take up to 2 weeks to develop and since the endometrium is shed every 4 weeks, the granulomas are poorly formed. In human medicine, pyometra (also a veterinary condition of significance) is regarded as a form of chronic endometritis seen in elderly women causing stenosis of the cervical os and accumulation of discharges and infection. Symptom in chronic endometritis is blood stained discharge but in pyometra the patient complaints of lower abdominal pain. Pyometra describes an accumulation of pus in the uterine cavity. In order for pyometra to develop, there must be both an infection and blockage of cervix. Signs and symptoms include lower abdominal pain (suprapubic), rigors, fever, and the discharge of pus on introduction of a sound into the uterus. Pyometra is treated with antibiotics, according to culture and sensitivity.

Medical Surgical Respiratory System: Pneumonia
 
38:14
Here are some Extra information that may help and guide you... Risk Factor: Conditions that produce mucus or bronchial obstruction and interfere with normal lung drainage (eg, cancer, cigarette smoking, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Immunosuppressed patients and those with a low neutrophil count (neutropenic). Smoking; cigarette smoke disrupts both mucociliary and macrophage Activity. Prolonged immobility and shallow breathing pattern. Depressed cough reflex (due to medications, a debilitated state, or weak respiratory muscles); aspiration of foreign material into the lungs during a period of unconsciousness (head injury, anesthesia, depressed level of consciousness), or abnormal swallowing mechanism. Nothing-by-mouth (NPO) status; placement of nasogastric, orogastric, or endotracheal tube. Supine positioning in patients unable to protect their airway. Antibiotic therapy (in very ill people, the oropharynx is likely to be colonized by gram-negative bacteria). Alcohol intoxication (because alcohol suppresses the body’s reflexes, may be associated with aspiration, and decreases white cell mobilization and tracheobronchial ciliary motion). General anesthetic, sedative, or opioid preparations that promote respiratory depression, which causes a shallow breathing pattern and predisposes to the pooling of bronchial secretions and potential development of pneumonia. Advanced age, because of possible depressed cough and glottic reflexes and nutritional depletion. Respiratory therapy with improperly cleaned equipment. Transmission of organisms from health care providers. Preventive Measures: Promote coughing and expectoration of secretions. Encourage smoking cessation. Initiate special precautions against infection. Initiate suctioning and chest physical therapy if indicated. Reposition frequently to prevent aspiration and administer medications. Promote frequent oral hygiene. Minimize risk for aspiration by checking placement of tube and proper positioning of patient. Elevate head of bed at least 30 degrees. Monitor patients receiving antibiotic therapy for signs and symptoms of pneumonia. Encourage reduced or moderate alcohol intake. Observe the respiratory rate and depth during recovery from general anesthesia and before giving medications. If respiratory depression is apparent, withhold the medication and contact the physician. Promote frequent turning, early ambulation and mobilization, effective coughing, breathing exercises, and nutritious diet. Make sure that respiratory equipment is cleaned properly; participate in continuous quality improvement monitoring with the respiratory care department. Use strict hand hygiene and gloves. Implement health care provider education. Treatment for Pneumonia Complications: A vasopressor agent may be administered by continuous IV infusion and at a rate adjusted in accordance with the pressure response. Corticosteroids may be administered parenterally to combat shock and toxicity in patients who are extremely ill with pneumonia and at apparent risk for death from the infection. Patients may require endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation. Patho: Normally, the upper airway prevents potentially infectious particles from reaching the sterile lower respiratory tract. Pneumonia arises from normal flora present in patients whose resistance has been altered or from aspiration of flora present in the oropharynx; patients often have an acute or chronic underlying disease that impairs host defenses. Pneumonia may also result from bloodborne organisms that enter the pulmonary circulation and are trapped in the pulmonary capillary bed. Pneumonia affects both ventilation and diffusion. An inflammatory reaction can occur in the alveoli, producing an exudate that interferes with the diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide. White blood cells, mostly neutrophils, also migrate into the alveoli and fill the normally air-filled spaces. Areas of the lung are not adequately ventilated because of secretions and mucosal edema that cause partial occlusion of the bronchi or alveoli, with a resultant decrease in alveolar oxygen tension. Bronchospasm may also occur in patients with reactive airway disease. Because of hypoventilation, a ventilation–perfusion mismatch occurs in the affected area of the lung. Venous blood entering the pulmonary circulation passes through the underventilated area and travels to the left side of the heart poorly oxygenated. The mixing of oxygenated and unoxygenated or poorly oxygenated blood eventually results in arterial hypoxemia. If a substantial portion of one or more lobes is involved, the disease is referred to as lobar pneumonia. The term bronchopneumonia is used to describe pneumonia that is distributed in a patchy fashion, having originated in one or more localized areas within the bronchi and extending to the adjacent surrounding lung parenchyma. Bronchopneumonia is more common than lobar pneumonia

Extracellular Acidification Acts as a Key Modulator of Neutrophil Apoptosis and Functions
 
00:19
Extracellular Acidification Acts as a Key Modulator of Neutrophil Apoptosis and Functions. Shannan Cao et al (2015), PLoS ONE http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0137221 In human pathological conditions, the acidification of local environment is a frequent feature, such as tumor and inflammation. As the pH of microenvironment alters, the functions of immune cells are about to change. It makes the extracellular acidification a key modulator of innate immunity. Here we detected the impact of extracellular acidification on neutrophil apoptosis and functions, including cell death, respiratory burst, migration and phagocytosis. As a result, we found that under the acid environment, neutrophil apoptosis delayed, respiratory burst inhibited, polarization augmented, chemotaxis differed, endocytosis enhanced and bacteria killing suppressed. These findings suggested that extracellular acidification acts as a key regulator of neutrophil apoptosis and functions.

In 2016, 54-year-old Craig was infected with Mycobacterium Abscessus, a rare water-borne bacteria, during a routine operation. The infection spread to his lungs, liver, and kidneys and his doctors found it was resistant to several antibiotics. It took two months to find a cocktail of antibiotics that worked against the bacteria and Craig now continues his treatment at home, hoping to finish the IV antibiotics soon.
