  1. 1. 11<br />Health Care TV<br />
  2. 2. 11<br />Let’s all welcome doctor Tiny!<br />(applause)<br />Good morning everyone! And welcome to the HEALTH CARE TV SHOW.<br />Today, we will talk about tuberculosis (TB). <br />For this topic, we’ve invited a doctor that is an very much knowledgeable in this disease. <br />Headline: Tuberculosis ! On a rampage. <br />
  3. 3. Tuberculosis is an infectious disease describe as having tiny lumps in the lungs. It came from the word tuberculum, which means small swelling,pimple/lump. <br />11<br />Now Let’s get started.<br />It is mainly caused by the bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. There are tow types of TB. 1st is the pulmonary TB and 2nd is the extrapulmonary TB. <br />All about tuberculosis. Etymology and types.<br />
  4. 4. Generally, the symptoms of TB are the presence of fever, weakness, weight loss and night sweats. If the infection in the lung worsens, then further symptoms can include coughing, chestpain, coughing up of sputum (material from the lungs) and/or blood, and shortness of breath. If the infection spreads beyond the lungs, the symptoms will depend upon the organs involved.<br />11<br />In pulmonary TB there are more types of TB. And each type has different symptoms. Let’s check the table for easier understanding<br />General symptoms of TB<br />
  5. 5. PULMONARY TUBERCULOSIS<br />
  6. 6. The infection is transferred via the air. When the person infected coughs, sneezes, shouts, or spits; the bacteria is transferred to the air and people nearby can possibly breathe the bacteria in their lungs. However, atypical tuberculosis can be acquired by drinking unpasteurized milk.<br />11<br />The disease can be observed few months after the infection. At most incubation is 2 ½ months. If not all the virus is eliminated, there is a chance that the TB will come back. <br />Mode of transportation<br />
  7. 7. Usually, the ones that can be easily infected are the elderly, people suffering from immunosuppression such as HIV and AIDS infected and those undergoing long term corticosteroid therapy. Those with good immune system have a strong resistance against this disease. <br />People who are homeless, live near those who are infected, prison inmates, nursing home residents, alcoholics, intravenous drug users, diabetic and health workers have high risks of being infected. <br />But, the infection can be controlled. There are two approaches, first is to identify those infected and treat them using antibiotics. Identification of infections often involves testing high-risk groups for TB. The second approach involves vaccination of children. (Bacillus Calmete Guerin vaccine (BCG) . <br />11<br />Susceptibility and Resistance <br />Methods of Control<br />Prevention<br />
