Everyone is afraid of cancer, heart disease or HIV. These are chronic diseases that progress over time and in most cases are fetuses. But there is a long list of diseases that can kill you only one day.
Meningitis is an inflammation of the protective membranes that envelop the brain and spinal cord, known as meningitis. Inflammation can be caused by infection with viruses, bacteria or other microorganisms. This condition can be lethal because of the proximity of inflammation to the brain and spinal cord.
The most common symptoms of meningitis include:
– headache and headache, associated with fever
– confusion or low level of consciousness,
– intolerance to light or noise
2. Chagas disease
Chagas disease is very common in Central and South American countries. The condition is caused by the infection with the Trypanosoma cruzi protozoan. It is transmitted through an insect that feeds on the blood of the host and often leaves feces near the stinging spot.
If a person gets scratched, it will contaminate the lesion with the parasite-bearing faeces. Asftel the parasite gains access to the human body where it begins its replication and invades the entire host.
The symptoms of the disease are very varied, depending on the stage of infection and the immunity of the host: some patients have only loco-regional signs, while others develop very serious chronic systemic disorders. Often, vital organs, mainly the heart, brain and digestive system, are attacked, leading to cardiac malformations, functional nervous disorders and visceromegaly.
Unfortunately, stroke (AVC) is becoming more and more popular among young people.
To keep the symptoms described below as easy as possible, you can use the method used by the famous character Dr. House, namely FAST:
F (face = face) – ask the patient to smile and notice if the face is not symmetrical or the lip is dropped on one side
A (arms = arms) – ask the patient to raise both arms and see if one of them stays below
S (speech) – Ask the patient to say a short sentence and see if he or she has difficulty speaking or not finding his or her words
T (time = time) – do not waste time, call the emergency number because the stroke should be treated medicinally or surgically as quickly as possible to prevent further fatal attacks and permanent damage to the brain.
MRSA is a recent variety of Staphylococcus golden bacterium, characterized by its resistance to antibiotic agents (antibioresistance). Due to its toxins, S. aureus can cause various conditions, from skin reactions to severe septicemia.
Lately, the number of infections caused by bacteria has increased in hospitals and clinics. This escalation of the number of illnesses is favored by prophylactic measures where hygiene measures are insufficient.
Ebola or hemorrhagic fever Ebola is a severe, often fatal, infectious viral disease caused by the Ebola virus (Ebolavirus), which is manifested by severe hemorrhagic disease in humans, primates and duiker antelopes, occurring in epidemic outbreaks in Central and West Africa.
It has a lethality rate of up to 90% in humans (the highest mortality in an infectious disease, except rabies).
