Lymphatic and immune system

  1. 1. Lymphatic and Immune System By: Azalyn Hickman Presentation 6H
  2. 2. Allergy• is a hypersensitivity disorder of the immune system• Hypersensitivity- undesirable reactions produced• Immune system- system of biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease
  3. 3. Allergy points• Allergy involves an exaggerated response of the immune system. The immune system is the bodys organized defense mechanism against foreign invaders, particularly infections. Allergens are substances that are foreign to the body and can cause an allergic reaction.• Who is at risk? – Everyone
  4. 4. • Symptoms – Shortness of breath – Wheezing – Coughing – Chest tightness • Treatment – Medication such as allergy shots
  5. 5. Hives• An outbreak of swollen, pale red bumps or plaques (wheals) on the skin that appear suddenly
  6. 6. Hives• One will usually have itching and sometimes burning feeling• Hives vary in size (from a pencil eraser to a dinner plate), and may join together to form larger areas known as plaques.• They can last for hours
  7. 7. Hives• Response to histamine, blood plasma leaks out of small blood vessels in the skin.• Antihistamines are usually prescribed by your doctor
  8. 8. Vaccination• Administration of antigenic material (a vaccine) to stimulate the immune system of an individual to develop adaptive immunity to a disease.
  9. 9. Vaccination• Vaccines typically contain one or more adjuvants, used to boost the immune response. Tetanus toxoid, for instance, is usually adsorbed onto alum.• At my job it is highly suggested that we get vaccinated due to being around patients
