Slide 1: 

COMMUNICABLE DISEASE An illness due to an infectious agent or toxic products which is transmitted directly or indirectly to all person or animal or through an agency of an intermediate animal host, vector of the inanimate environment. ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF DISEASE AGENT microorganism that is living and capable of invading and multiplying in the body of the host. Viruses – are the smallest known microbes. They are incapable of replication independently in the host’s cells to participate in the formation of additional viruses.

Slide 2: 

b. Bacteria – are simple, one-celled microbes with double cell membranes that protect them from harm. They reproduce rapidly and they are considered as the most common cause of fatal infectious diseases. c. Fungi – are found almost everywhere on earth. They live in organic matter, soil, water, animals and plants. Fungi can also be beneficial in cheese, yogurt, beer, wine, and certain drugs like penicillin. Parasites – any organism that derives benefits from others. They don’t usually kill their host but take only the nutrients they need. HOST is a person, animal or plant on which a parasite depends for its survival.

Slide 3: 

Once the microorganism is already present on the body and begins to proliferate we can say that the body is now infected. The degree of severity of an infectious disease can range from mild to life threatening depending on many variables the health of the host and the virulence of the microorganism Types: 1. infected body – which the infectious agent has entered and multiply 2. susceptible host – the one that don’t possess resistance against infectious agents ENVIRONMENT – encompasses the ways and means of transmission of the infectious agent to the susceptible host.

Slide 4: 

TERMS Contagious – applied to a disease that are easily spread directly or indirectly transmitted from one person to another. Usually respiratory disease. Ex. SARS, PTB Infectious – are those disease not transmitted by ordinary contact but require a direct inoculation through a break in the previously intact skin and mucus membrane. On the other hand all contagious disease are infectious. Ex. Hepatitis B Infection - An invasion of the body by pathogenic organisms that multiply and produce injurious effects. Types: 1. local – limited to the site. 2. focal – a local infection from which the organism themselves spread to other parts of the body.

Slide 5: 

3. Systemic – infection is spread throughout the body. Ex. Septicemia a. recurrent – an infection that returns periodically. b. reinfection – a secondary infection of the same microorganism either after recovery or during the original infection. c. superinfection – an infection occurring during antimicrobial treatment for another infection d. autoinfection – an infection already present in the body but developing to the other parts of the body. e. acute infection – infection that develops rapidly, usually resulting in a high fever or severe sickness

Slide 6: 

f. chronic – slowly, mildly but longer lasting g. bacteremia - presence of non multiplying bacteria in the blood h. septicemia – presence of bacteria cells actively multiplying in the blood i. toxemia – presence of microbial toxins in the blood j. viremia – presence of virus in the blood Carrier – a person who harbors and disseminates the specific microorganisms of a communicable disease, but does not manifest the signs and symptoms of the disease. Contact – a person or an animal known or believed to have been exposed to a disease.

Slide 7: 

Contamination – the process by which something is rendered unclean or unsterile. Infection of the person or of matter by contact. (contaminated) Isolation – The separation of persons with CD from other persons so that either direct or indirect transmission to susceptible persons is prevented. Ex. Measles, chickenpox etc. Reverse isolation – The separation of persons with immunodeficiency. ex. Leukemia and AIDS patient Quarantine – the limitation of freedom and movement of persons, or animals which have been exposed to communicable disease, for a period of time equal to the longest incubation period of the disease to which they have been exposed. Ex. SARS

Slide 8: 

1. Complete – the limitation of freedom and movement, in such manner as to prevent effective contact with those not so exposed. 2. Modified – selective partial limitation of freedom and movement that is determined commonly on the basis of known or presumed difference in susceptibility or sometimes because of the danger of disease transmission. Ex. Exclusion of children from schools) 3. Surveillance – the practice of close supervision of contacts without restrictions of movements. This may apply to domestic animals also. 4. Segregation – the separation for special consideration, control or observation of some part of a group of persons from the other to facilitate the control of some CD.

Slide 9: 

Pathogenecity – the ability to produce a disease Virulence – The vigor with which the organism can grow and multiply. COURSE OF INFECTIOUS PROCESS The course of any infectious disease can be divided into several stages after the potential pathogen has entered. The duration of each phase and the pattern varies. 1. Incubation – extends from the entry of microorganism into the body to the onset of signs and symptoms. -is the phase wherein the pathogen begins active replication without producing recognizable symptoms in the host.

Slide 10: 

-the incubation period may be short as in Salmonella that is from 6 – 24 hours or prolonged as in Hepatitis B that is from 50 to 180 days or two to five months, HIV that is from months to years. 2. Prodromal – it is premonitory or early sign indicating an impending attack of a disease. 3. Illness / invasion/ Acute stage – is the period wherein the host experiences the maximum impact of the infectious process. 4. Convalescent – is characterized by the containment of infection, progressive elimination of the pathogen, repair of damaged tissue and resolution of associated symptoms. The RESOLUTION is the total elimination of a pathogen from the body without residual signs and symptoms.

Slide 11: 

THE CHAIN OF INFECTION ETIOLOGIC/INFECTIOUS AGENT: Bacteria. Fungi, virus, parasites RESERVOIR (SOURCE) Human beings, animals, inanimate object, plants, general environment such as air, water and soil. PORTAL OF EXIT Sputum, emesis, stool, blood MODES OF TRANSMISION Contact, vehicle, airborne, vector-borne

Slide 12: 

PORTAL OF ENTRY Mucous membrane, non intact skin, GI tract, GU tract, Respiratory tract. SUSCEPTIBLE HOST Immunosuppressed children, elderly, chronically ill, those with trauma or surgery.

Slide 13: 

ETIOLOGIC AGENT Invading microorganisms which is capable of producing disease These may be bacteria, virus, fungi, parasites. The ability of the infectious agent to cause a disease depends on its pathogenecity, virulence, invasiveness and specificity. 1. Bacteria – are simple, one-celled microbes with double cell membranes that protect them from harm. They reproduce rapidly and they are considered as the most common cause of fatal infectious diseases. 2. Virus – microorganism that resides within other living cells, they invade and stimulate the host’s cells to participate in the formation of additional viruses.

Slide 14: 

3. Fungus – plant like organism that grows as single cells and can be found almost everywhere on earth. 4. Protozoans – are much larger than bacteria. They are the simplest single-celled organism of the animal kingdom. 5. Rickettsias – are small, gram negative(-) bacteria-like microbes that can induce life threatening infections. These are usually transmitted through a bite of arthropod carriers like lice, fleas, ticks, as well as through waste products. RESERVOIR Environment in which the invading organism lives and multiplies

Slide 15: 

inanimate objects, humans and other animals can all serve as reservoir. PORTAL OF EXIT Mode of escape from reservoir or the path by which an infectious agent leaves it’s reservoir. usually this portal is the site where the organism grows. a. respiratory system b. genitourinary tract c. gastrointestinal tract d. skin and mucous membrane MODE OF TRANSMISSION Method by which the infectious agent passes through from the portal of exit of the reservoir to the susceptible host. This is the easiest link to break the chain of infection

Slide 16: 

Infections can be transmitted into four modes. 1. Contact Transmission -is the most common mode of transmission. *Droplet -is a transmission through contact with respiratory secretions when the infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. Microbes carried in droplets can travel up to three feet or one meter. The organism is not suspended in the air but settles on surface. *Direct contact - refers to a person to person transfer of organism.

Slide 17: 

*Indirect contact -occurs when the susceptible person comes in contact with a contaminated object. 2. Vehicle -This involves the transfer of microorganism through articles or substances that harbor the organism until it is ingested or inoculated into the host. Ex. milk, food, water, blood, utensils, pillows and mattress. 3. Airborne -this occurs when fine microbial particles are suspended in the air for a long time or when dust particles contain pathogens. Air currents disperses microorganism, which can be inhaled or deposited on the skin of a susceptible host.

Slide 18: 

4. Vector-borne -occurs when intermediate carriers, such as fleas, flies, mosquitos, rats, snails transfer the microbes to another living organism. -mechanical like inanimate objects that are infected with infected body fluids like contaminated needles and syringes. PORTAL OF ENTRY this permits the organism to gain entrance into the susceptible host. pathogens can enter susceptible host through body orifices such as the mouth, nose, ears, vagina, rectum or urethra. Breaks in the skin increases the chance for organism to enter the host.

Slide 19: 

Usually this path is the same as the portal of exit. SUSCEPTIBLE HOST a person who is at risk for infection; whose own body defense mechanism, when exposed are unable to withstand the invasion of pathogens. Susceptibility determined by factors such as number of invading organisms, duration of exposure, age, state of health, nutritious status. A susceptible host is also required for the transmission of infection. The human body has many defenses against the entry and multiplication of organism. When these defenses functions normally, no infection will take place. However, in a weakened host, an infectious agent is more likely to invade the body and launch an infectious disease.

Slide 20: 

Defense mechanism – the bodies defense mechanism falls into two categories: 1. First line defenses These are the external and mechanical barriers such as: a. Skin -intact skin, mucus membrane, certain chemical substances, specialized structures such as cilia and normal micro flora can stop pathogens from establishing themselves in the body. b. The gag, cough reflex and GI peristalsis -work to remove pathogens. c. Chemical substances that help prevent infection or inhibit microbial growth -saliva, perspiration, interferon ( a naturally occurring glycoprotein with antiviral properties.), GI and vaginal secretions

Slide 21: 

c. Normal flora -control the growth of potential pathogens through a mechanism called microbial antagonism. -they use nutrients that pathogens need for growth, compete pathogens for their sites on tissue receptor and secretes naturally occurring antibiotics to kill the pathogens. Ex. Candida. 2. Second Line defenses -WBC and the inflammatory response -respond to any type of injury, their response is termed non specific. 3. Immune System

Slide 22: 

a. Cell mediated immunity -involves T cells (a type of WBC). -some T cells synthesize and secrete lymphokines, others become killer (cytotoxic cell), setting out to track down infected body cells. b. Humoral immunity -mediated by antibodies, involves the action of B lymphocytes in conjunction with helper T cells. >Conditions that may weaken a person’s defense includes: *poor hygiene *Malnutrition *Extremes of age *Climate

Slide 23: 

*Inadequate physical barriers *Inherited and acquire immune deficiencies *Emotional and physical stressor *Chronic disease *Medical and surgical treatments *Inadequate immunizations HERD IMMUNITY Is when a group of people is immune to a specific disease. Ex. Measles vaccine

Slide 24: 

TERMS 1. Incidence -the number of cases of disease, or infection or other events during a prescribed time period in relation to the unit population in which they occur. 2. Prevalence -the number of cases of disease of infected persons. 3. Sporadic -occurring occasionally and irregularly with no specific pattern. example: tetanus -occasional cases occur. (dengue during rainy season, leptospirosis during floods.)

Slide 25: 

4. Endemic -a disease is found to be continuously present in a community. -usually involve few people during specific periods. (e.g. Malaria in Palawan and Mindanao, Goiter in mountain province) 5. Epidemic -a condition in which a disease attacks a large number of people in the community over a specific time, or during the same season, and in which the disease tends to spread rapidly to others. 6. Pandemic -a widespread epidemic that affects several countries or continents. Ex. SARS, AIDS, Meningococcemia

Slide 26: 

7. Morbidity rate -the sick rate 8. Mortality rate -relates to the number of deaths to the total number of population. 9. Morbidity -condition of being diseased. 10. Mortality -condition of being subject to death. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF INFECTION 1. FEVER a. Intermittent

Slide 27: 

b. Remittent -the temperature fluctuates within a wide range over the 24 hour period but remains above normal range. c. Hectic -a fever that occurs each day with profound sweating chills and facial flushing. d. Relapsing -the temperature is elevated for few days, alternated with 1 or 2 days of normal temperature. e. Factitious -self induced fever. f. Drug-fever -induced by drugs or medicine - the onset of fever occurs between 7 – 10 days after the medication is begun and return to normal 2- 3 days after the medication is stopped.

Slide 28: 

g. Hyperpyrexia -very high fever. h. Constant -body temperature is consistently high. 2. RESPIRATORY 3. BLOOD PICTURE 4. GASTROINTESTINAL 5. CNS 6. CARDIOVASCULAR Immunity Refers to the body’s specific protective response to an invading organism or particular disease.
