Transcript of Science Rpoject-- Polio

Nausea or Vomiting
Sore Throat
Stiff Neck and Back
Pain in arms and legs. How Deadly is Polio? Some People will not have any symptoms while some people have severe symptoms. There is a severe risk of paralysis for lifetime. About 2 to 5 out of 100 children die because of paralysis because the paralysis affects the muscles that they need to breathe. Ideas ... small Polio spreads easily, usually from the stool (feces) of an infected person to the mouth of someone else through hands or objects, like toys, that have small amounts of the stool on them.Polio Can also spread, through kissing. How does it Spread? What can you do to prevent polio? You can prevent polio by getting a vaccine called IPV. IPV stands for inactivated (killed) polio vaccine. A vaccine is a shot that tells your body that you have already had that virus. Once your body has a virus so severe such as polio your immune system will fight it off the next time you are prone to getting it. The vaccine will also have medicine in the shot to prevent the virus from entering into a host and reproducing. Symptoms of Polio . This was a gentle, method that worked for long term solution to breathing paralysis. Patients could be supplied with enough breathing rates for as long as they needed it.The problem with this method is that it hides the patient from examination and makes it difficult to care for their other bodily needs. The patient would need to be flipped over regularly in order to minimize skin breakdown, and opening the chamber to do this was a big deal. Basically the patient would be unable to breathe properly until the system was reconnected. Skin breakdown with open non-healing sores, infections, and fever was common, and was a frequent cause of death The iron lung was originally created in the 1950's. inside the
iron tube was dials and controls. The design of the iron lung were to help people breathe, when they were paralyzed from the neck down. The function of the unit involved mechanical pumping of air in and out of the chamber. When air was forced into the chamber, it would gently pressurize the space around the patient's abdomen and chest, thereby forcing them to exhale. When air was pumped back out, it would drop the pressure around the patient's abdomen and chest, and air would enter the patient's trachea through the normal routes of nose or mouth. Iron Lung What Helps Make

Breathing Easier? Iron Lung Creation How did polio come to exist? Picture of Polio Virus under a Microscope. Polio goes by Polio or other wise known as Poliovirus (one word) Polio is caused by a virus.
a virus is...A virus is a small infectious agent that can replicate only inside the living cells of an organism. Viruses can infect all types of organisms, from animals and plants to bacteria and archaea. Polio is a Virus. It takes awhile to go away. Nobody can really remember when polio was started. but It's been around for as long as we can remember it is nothing new but since it lays dormant for a while who knows it could of progressed into something since the begging. When did polio start? Group Group Member Member Member (cc) photo by theaucitron on Flickr (cc) photo by theaucitron on Flickr Long Term affects of Polio. The most common long-term problems seen in polio are brace problems, knee recurvatum, increasing weakness due to overuse and ankle equinus. A definite increased incidence of problems is seen after the patient is more than 30 years post-polio. The basis for most of these problems is chronic mechanical strain of weak musculature and substituting ligaments Yes, There is a vaccine for polio. The vaccine is.........
IPV is a type of polio vaccine. IPV stands for inactivated polio
vaccine. It is given by a shot.
Polio vaccine protects children by preparing their bodies to fight the poliovirus. Who is most likely to be prone to getting polio? People will have long term affects from the virus polio.
~Braces on legs.
~not a very balanced walk.
~severe leg pain.
~always need help with med/breathing What are the long term affects of polio? Most prone to getting polio are people who do not have the vaccine. you can...
~ wash your hands
~ Do not drink after people
