Transcript of Cholera

Cholera Causes of Cholera Cholera is caused by the 'Vibrio Cholerae' germ. Cholera was spread by drinking fountains in the 1800's. You may get cholera if you eat or drink something that is contaminated. If food is undercooked, it may cause cholera. Poor sanitation causes cholera. Cholera is not contagious. Cholera is also spread by unsanitary living conditions (Teens Health). Symptoms of Cholera Cholera symptoms may occur within hours or as late as five days. Common cholera symptoms are diarrhea, vomiting, and leg cramps, lack of energy, irritability, glassy eyes, dry skin, irregular heartbeat, low blood pressure, and extreme thirst. Cholera causes dehydration. If dehydration is severe enough, it may lead to seizures, kidney failure, or even death (Teens Health).

Antibiotics may be prescribed. If the dehydration is very serious, you may need to stay in the hospital and get fluids through an IV (Teens Health). http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/zimbabwe/4228239/Zimbabwe-cholera-epidemic-kills-2000.html http://www.arxmanhealth.com/cholera-types-and-causes/ http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2010/12/10/131972272/toward-a-new-strategy-for-fighting-cholera-in-haiti By: Colleen Vogel
