Transcript of Disease Diagnosis

Leptospirorsis scenario synopsis
diagnosis organisms effected cause of disease Additional info. stomach digestion Symptoms starts W/ headache severe muscular aches
chills & fever diarrhea Swimming in water contaminated by animal urine coming in contact with soil&water After going to South America and swimming in the water, I experienced symptoms such as weakness, headaches, diarrhea, fever, and chills. When I arrived back to Denver I got sent to the emergency room. After getting my examination my doctor thinks he has a cure but he's not sure. I sure hope he does because my condition can worsen and I could develop pneumonia, intestinal hemorrhage, or death After doing tons of research I have come to the conclusion that I have leptospirosis. I had to search using the key words North America and using my symptoms. I also had to include water and my outcomes if I don’t get helped. While doing my research I ran into other diseases whose symptoms where very close to mine. Prevention&treatment How is this disease Acquired/Transmittied This disease is caught by direct contact with infected animal urine and tissue or indirectly with water and soil .
(the eyes,nose,and mouth are the main entry points) You can prevent this sickness from happening by avoiding areas with stagenant water in tropical climates. Also Doxycycline may be used to prevent infection in adventure travelers to high risk areas

The treatments to this disease are cefotaxime, doxycycline, penicillin, ampicillin, and amoxicillin (doxycycline can also be used as a prophylaxis). There are no human vaccines Effects of the disease on the systems During the acute illness, bacteria cause damage to tissues in the patient's body, by a combination of toxins and damage to the blood supply. This can lead to long-term changes in the function of internal organs but is not directly related to the bacteria, only to the damage they cause. Reduction in function of the liver and kidneys is one such outcome, but where the tissue damage is not too severe the body will heal over time. head Vomitting weak&dizzy Dogs are more likely to get Leptospros since they tend to drink water from puddles
There are no vacines for humans
