Transcript: The Role Of Skin Against Infection By Elias, Jessie, Joel Infection Is the colonization of a host organism by parasite species. Infecting parasites seek to use the host's resources to reproduce, often resulting in disease. Infections are usually considered to be caused by microscopic organisms or microparasites like viruses, prions, bacteria, and viroids, though larger organisms like macroparasites and fungi can also infect. Layers of the Skin Epidermis Is the outer layer of the skin, which together with the dermis forms the cutis. The epidermis acts as the body's major barrier against an inhospitable environment. The top layer (dead epidermis) sheds off the skin every moment, taking all the bacteria with it. This keeps them from staying on too long. Without skin you could not process waste and your organs/ blood would go everywhere, killing you. If that didn't do it first, millions of bacteria would finish you off in about an hour. Wacth Video The Covering of Skin The main way that your skin protects you against disease is through acting much as armor does to knight. The skin creates an impermeable layer that separates your body's internals from the disease causing bacteria and viruses outside of you. Of course, a break in the skin barrier can allow disease to make its way into the body, but as long as the skin is free of cuts or open sores, foreign invaders are unable to get in. Shedding of Skin The skin also protects you from diseases by shedding on a regular basis. Although disease causing bacteria and viruses are unable to get through the skin to infect you without help from an opening or sore, they can attach themselves to the skin. Your skin is constantly making new cells and shedding old ones. When the dead skin cells are shed off your body to make room for the new cells, the bacteria and other disease causing agents fall of with the skin cells as well, removing them from the body.

Transcript: 1.Migraine 2/3 of 300 million people suffering from migraines worldwide are women between the ages of 15 and 55 tippically due to hormonal influences 2. Myelin: Myelin begins to form around the axon around the 14th week of prenatal development. Not all axons are completely myelinated, but rather around the time the child starts walking and onward development continues. is an inherited defect in a lysosmal enzyme causes myelin to accumulate, burying neurons in fat. This defect is usually detected around six month old, gradually losing sight, hearing, and muscle function until death at age 4. However this disease is extremely rare. 3. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) blurred vision numb legs or arms 4.Neuroma 5. Impulse Conduction painful muscle cramps, convulsions, paralysis, and anesthesia can each result from channges in the permebility of axons to particular ions. A number of substances alter acon membranepermebility to ions. calcium ion are required to close sodium channels in axon membranes during an action potential. if calcium is dificient, then sodium ions diffuse through the membrain contiuallyso that impulses are transmitted repeadly. if the muscles continuously spasm due impulses traveled along axons (tetanes or tetany). Tetanic contraction may also occur when the diet lacks calcium and or vitamin D; prolonged diarrhea depletes the body of calcium. A small increase in the concentration of extracellular potassium ions causes the resting potential of nerve fibers to be less negative (partially depolariced). As a result, the threshold potential is reached with a less intense stimulus than usual. If the ectracellular potassium ion concentration is greatly decreased, the resting potentals of the nerve fibers may become so negative that action potentiials are not generated. In this case, impulses are not triggered, and muscles become paralyzed. Certain anesthetic drugs, such as procaine, the decrese membrane permeability to sodium ions. In tissuefluids surroundin an axon, these drugs prevent impulses from passing through the affected region. Consequently, the drugs keep impulses from reaching the brain, preventing perception of touch or pain. 6. Opiate Drugs: poppy plant 7.Drug Addiction: when a smoker increases the number of cigarettes smoked, the number of nicotinic receptors increases. so receptors are produced faster then they are taken apart. After a pirod of steady nictine exposure, many of the receptors malfunction and no longer admit the positive ions trigger the nerve impulse. this may be why as time goes oon it takes more nicotine to produce the same effect- a hallmark of addiction.

They constrict blood flow therefore can be dangerous to certain people. symptoms: tetanus MS is a disorder that affects 2.5 million people worldwide, and 400,000 in North America. About 70% of people notice the symptoms between ages twenty and forty; earliest three years, latest sixty-seven years. Caucasian Women are the most likely to get MS in regards to men and women of other races. Doctors consent History: Exposure: if a peripheral nerve is severed, it is important that the two cut ends be connected ASAP. However if the cut is larger than 3 millimeters, the regenerating axons may form a tangled mass called a neuroma. It is composed of sensory axons and is painfully sensitive to pressure. Neuromas sometimes complicate a patients recovery following limb amputation. Neurons do not divide.In the adult brain , the rare neural stem ccells are in a region called the centate gyrus and near fluid-filled cavities called ventricles. Neural stem were discovered in the 1980's, in songbirds. Today, human neural stem and progenitor cellre being used to screen drugs and are being delivered as implants to experimentally treat a variety of brain disorders. One day, a person's neural stem cells may be coaxed to help heal from within. enviromental triggers: pounding head waves of nausea extreme sensitivity to light and sound sometimes shimering images in the peripheral visual feild Anatomy Triptan is a vary

Transcript: Karen Varela Skin Cancer What is Skin Cancer? Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells. It occurs when unrepaired DNA damage to skin cells (most often caused by ultraviolet radiation from sunshine or tanning beds) triggers mutations, or genetic defects, that lead the skin cells to multiply rapidly and form malignant tumors. What causes Skin Cancer? Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. There are two types - UVA and UVB. Sunlamps and tanning booths which are artificial forms of UV radiation, can also cause skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed annually! 13 million white non-Hispanics living in the US at the beginning of 2007 had at least one nonmelanoma skin cancer, typically diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma (BCC) or squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Prevention Tips! Using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher as one important part of a complete sun protection regimen. Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating. Seek the shade, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM. Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths. Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
