Question description

Hello:

Here is some feedback on the patient scenario assignment.

For #1: the components of the physical exam include:

auscultation, palpation and percussion. so it is necessary to explain what the terms mean and what are they intended to find.

#3: requires that all of the labs run during the first and second hospitalizations be listed. I see PSA and aldosterone listed but nothing else.

#6: how do the steps involved in the scientific method correlate with the steps carried out by the patient's doctor.


Please include these in the attached word document.

Running Head: EBOLA VIRUS 1 Ebola virus Justin Young University of Maryland University College 2 EBOLA VIRUS Ebola Virus Introduction According to the World Health Organization, (2018), the Ebola Virus Disease stands out as high risk and also a fatal illness that affects both the human and also the related organisms. Some of the related organisms that can get affected by the disease include monkeys, gorillas and also the other animals of the primates' family. The disease caused by a virus transfers from the mentioned wild animals to the humans. Once infected, a human being can transmit the virus to the others efficiently. Considering the previous cases reported on the outbreak of the disease in the various parts of the globe, experts and researchers concluded that the statistics show the virus contains a fatality rate of about 50%. Many communities around the globe today rank ebola as one of the major illnesses that brings significant fatalities in case of an outbreak. The world recorded the first cases of Ebola in the year 1976 in the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan. The importance of the virus in the medical field refers to the contributions that it makes in research (Formenty, 2014). Thus, the virus helps in enabling the research and also the medical teams to evaluate the various approaches that they may use to handle an outbreak. Once infected, the virus manifests itself in many ways. For instance, the patient may start to exhibit internal bleeding which in the long run leads to the victim coughing out blood. Further, the victim may exhibit signs and symptoms such as an extreme headache, fever, muscle strain, and also body chills. Also, the victims can experience abdominal, chest and also joint pain. Sometimes, the patient may experience diarrhea and also nausea. After infection, the virus travels through the bloodstreams of the victim. In the end, the first, the virus spreads from one human to the other through direct contact especially, exploiting any broken skins. Also, direct contact with the victim can lead to the transmission of the disease. The virus primarily targets the EBOLA VIRUS 3 liver and endothelial cells and also the entire immune system. In simple terms, when the virus enters the body of the victim, it targets the immune system. It destroys the immune system of the victim as well as the associated organs which in the end brings about a reduction in the number of cells responsible for clotting of the blood. This reduction of clotting cells leads to excessive bleeding which in most cases in untreated leads to death. In such a case, the patient, therefore, exhibits various signs and symptoms such as uncontrolled chilling of the body, extreme headache and also but not least, coughing blood. Since the virus can transfer from one person to the other through close contacts of the body or exchange of the various fluids, it remains one of the diseases with high-risk factors. An effective control measure must take into account all the various avenues that present risks of contracting or transmitting the disease. These measures may include enforcing safe burials to the dead, managing each case independently, tracking all the affected parties, mobilizing the general public and also but not least, setting up the right laboratory resources. The responsible teams of experts must consider reducing the risks of contracting or transmitting the disease in various ways. Enforcing control measures when dealing with wild animals such as thoroughly cooking their products and also using gloves may help in achieving the desired goals. Further, the teams must ensure that they educate the general public on the importance of keeping distances with the infected people and wearing protective clothing. Further, the experts must ensure that they implement the right mechanisms for containment may help in the attainment of the set goals. To maintain the desired levels of quality of life, the experts in the field of medicine must ensure that they sensitize the general public on the best practices to follow concerning the prevention of infection or transmission of the disease. The experts may advise the general public to avoid making direct contacts with the infected wild animals such as bats, monkeys and also EBOLA VIRUS 4 chimpanzees among others. Further, the general public must ensure that it enforces the right mechanisms such as wearing gloves and also adequately cooking their animal products before consumption. Besides, the general public must ensure that it reduces the chances of making direct human-to-human contacts with the infected parties by, for example, wearing gloves. Diagnosing Ebola remains a challenge to many practitioners. For example, some of the signs and symptoms that a victim may exhibit in the first place conform to other diseases such as cholera and also malaria (Laupland & Valiquette, 2014). As a result, the experts strongly recommend that the practitioners should not base their conclusions on the symptoms and signs alone. As a recommendation, the practitioners should perform further laboratory tests which in the long run take into account the blood samples to screen the nature of the virus. Once diagnosed with the disease, the experts immediately isolate the victim from the rest to prevent the transmission from one party to the others. Some of the approaches that the experts may use in the management of the disease include blood transfusion, subjecting the victim to fluids and also but not least, treating the other infectious illnesses that may arise. Due to the deadly nature of the disease, the practitioners prefer first controlling the symptoms that if untreated may lead to death. The proposed drugs for the treatment of the disease remain under evaluation before their implementation. Furthermore, the practitioners subject the target population to a vaccine that prevents the possibility of contracting the disease. The vaccine by the name rVSV-ZEBOV produced by WHO in conjunction with the Ministry of Health in Guinea managed to reduce the transmission of the disease to the target groups of people (WHO Ebola Response Team. 2014). After the patient gets subjected to the various medical interventions, the experts usually expect that the affected person would improve his/her survival rates. For instance, treating the EBOLA VIRUS 5 symptoms and signs such as loss of body fluids and also appetite may help to boost the immune system thus increasing the chances of survival. Currently, the various parties in the field of medicine and research engage in conducting a study on the best approach to follow when it comes to the management of the disease. Further, the current studies seek to outline the most effective medical intervention that would in the long run help to treat and also cure Ebola patients. In the future, the medical teams seek to understand the nature of the virus. In understanding the nature of the virus, the experts seek to evaluate the possible cases of mutation which in the end may help to come up with an intervention that can counter the impacts of the disease. Further, the experts in the medical field engage in research aimed at the evaluation of the essential characteristics of the virus. These characteristics can in the long run help to detect the earliest signs and symptoms that the patients may exhibit., early detection and implementation of the correct medical assistance can help to increase the chances of survival for the affected parties. Understanding the manifestation of the virus at the very first instances after the infection may in the long run help to come up with an effective preventive measure (WebMD, 2018). The future research also seeks to come up with a curative medicine that can help to treat the victims after the detection of the disease. Conclusion Summing up, Ebola disease stands out as one of the deadliest illnesses today. Once infected, the victim, if not treated with the various symptoms, may die within a short period. The most common mode of transmission includes direct body contacts with an infected person. Further, a person can infect the other through the exchange of body fluids such as blood among others. The virus affects the immune system and also organs such as the liver among others. It reduces the total number of the blood cells responsible for clotting. After the destruction of the EBOLA VIRUS 6 red blood cells, the victim may experience uncontrolled internal bleeding which in the long run leads to death. Currently, the medical experts rely heavily on the containment of the symptoms and also vaccination of the victims. The future research seeks to come up with a way of detecting the early symptoms and manifestations of the virus. This research will help to come up with new treatment and also curative mechanisms against the disease. EBOLA VIRUS 7 References: WHO. (2018). Ebola virus disease. World Health Organization.
