All about meningitis- cause, clinical features, diagnosis, treatment and complications. Lecture about meningitis. All types of meningitis viral, bacterial, fungal and parasite is explained. Inflammation of meninges called as meningitis. Inflammation can be caused by bacteria, viral, fungi, parasite even by non infectious such as sacrcodosis and SLE. as we know meningitis can cause severe clinical problem such as stiffness of neck, photo phobia and in some causes it's gonna be rash as symptoms such as purupra for meningococcal and vesicular for herpes virus for meningitis. In half of patients especially with bacterial meningitis goanna be positive for Kernig sign and brudzinski sign. Diagnosis best done by doing a lumbar puncture for csf analysis to find out causative agent, keep in mind about patients with increase ICP those having symptoms such as papiledema, seizures and altered mental status because those patients you should not do lumbar puncture. So what diagnosis examination for patients with increase ICP, for them we have do CT scan. Treatment option ceftriaxone, ampicillin, vancomycin route should be by IV. Neonates don't give ceftriaxone.

For More Details Visit http://cepekmedia.co.nf A lumbar puncture (or spinal tap) is performed in your lower back, in the lumbar region. During the lumbar puncture, a needle is inserted between 2 lumbar bones (vertebrae) to remove a sample of cerebrospinal fluid. This is the fluid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord to protect them from injury. A lumbar puncture can help diagnose serious infections, such as meningitis, other disorders of the central nervous system, such as Guillain-Barre syndrome and multiple sclerosis; or cancers of the brain or spinal cord. Sometimes doctors use lumbar punctures to inject anaesthetic medications or chemotherapy drugs into the cerebrospinal fluid. Why it is done? A lumbar puncture may be done to 1. Collect cerebrospinal fluid for laboratory analysis. 2. Measure the pressure of your cerebrospinal fluid. 3. Inject spinal anaesthetics, chemotherapy drugs or other medications. 4. Inject dye (myelography) or radioactive substances (cisternography) into cerebrospinal fluid to make the diagnostic images of the fluid’s flow. 5. Information gathered from a lumbar puncture can help diagnose 6. Serious bacterial, fungal and viral infections, including meningitis, encephalitis and syphilis. 7. Bleeding around the brain (subarachnoid haemorrhage) 8. Certain cancers involving the brain or spinal cord 9. Certain inflammatory conditions of the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis and Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

When spectrophotometers and nephelometers are used in place of the human eye to detect agglutination, it is possible to measure quantitatively and to develop sensitive particle immunoassays. Latex particles may be build from different organic materials to a desired diameter, and may be functionalized with chemical groups to facilitate attachment of molecules Proteins and other molecules may be passively adsorbed to the latex particles or covalently coupled to functional groups. Some described automated latex agglutination tests have sensitivities of a few picograms of analyte.

Arachnoid Cyst - Cure Healing Rife Frequency | Binaural Beats by HealingBox Brainwaves (Binaural Sound Therapy) Arachnoid cysts are cerebrospinal fluid covered by arachnoidal cells and collagen that may develop between the surface of the brain and the cranial base or on the arachnoid membrane, one of the three meningeal layers that cover the brain and the spinal cord. Arachnoid cysts are a congenital disorder, and most cases begin during infancy; however, onset may be delayed until adolescence.
