It is a bacterium Staphylococcus groupof various diseases caused by of the more familiar body.Staphylococcus tissue as staphylococci (pronounced “staff”) is known, they can cause.
Staphylococcus name comes from the classic “staphyle” which means a bunch of grapes, and Kokkos meaning that the berries so that the bacteria Staphylococcus under a microscope looks like a bunch of grapes or a little rounded. These bacteria are Gram-positive bacteria, facultative anaerobic.
Infectious diseases ranging from mild Staphylococcus and require no treatment to severe and life threatening. Staph can disorders. Directly, or for the production of toxins infection causing bacteria Examples of diseases caused by bacterial infectious diseases, such as furuncles, impetigo, food poisoning, toxic shock syndrome and cellulite.
Symptoms and signs of bacterial infection are pus and abscesses. The area or areas of the body exposed to infection is usually pain, red and swollen.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, known as MRSA name, is a type ofStaphylococcus aureusthat methicillin and other drugs in this class is difficult. Staphylococcus aureus infections can with topical antibiotics, orally or intravenously, treated according to the type of infection.
More than 30 types of Staphylococci can people but most infections are spread by Staphylococcus aureus. These bacteria can usually in the nose and on the skin (which could be another area, but rarely)
In fact, in most cases, the bacteria do not cause the disease. However, skin damage or injury may allow the bacteria damage the mechanism of the antibody from the body so that there is an infection.
Anyone can be affected by these types of bacterial infections and increased risk occurs in newborns, infants, and those women suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, vascular diseases, diseases pulmonary, people with skin wounds, intravenous catheters, surgical incisions, and people with weakened immune systems,
Bacterial infections can, namely, direct contact with the infected wound or personal items such as razors, bandages, etc. casual contact such as shaking hands or touching transferred where there is direct contact with the infected area is less likely to be infected.
As a result of a bacterial infection can fester for example cause high fever, chills and hypotension. Skin infections are the most common type of the disease caused by Staphylococcus. Skin infections can cause impetigo (crust) progress, or cellulitis (inflammation of the deep layers of the skin and connective tissue under the skin, causing swelling and redness).
In lactating women, these bacteria can cause mastitis (inflammation of the sinuses), if you know when this happens mastitis can release bacteria into breast milk.
When bacteria invade the bloodstream and spread to other organs, it can cause a number of serious infections. The spread of the organism in the blood known as bacteremia or sepsis. In pneumonia pain can cause abscesses in the lungs.
The heart valve infection (endocarditis) can lead to heart failure. The spread of staph osteomyelitis bone can cause severe inflammation known bone. Similarly thrombophlebitis occurs when bacteria are infected through blood vessels. Thrombophlebitis occurs most frequently in hospitalized patients.
In people with severe burns to large areas of the body. If untreated, S. aureus bring death.
Food poisoning is a disease of the stomach, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration. It is caused by toxins that contaminate the food produced by Staphylococcus aureus room. Symptoms usually develop within one to six hours after eating harm food. The illness usually lasts one to three days and heal itself. Patients with this disease are not contagious, because the toxins from one person to another are not transferred.
toxic shock syndrome is caused by a sudden high fever, vomiting, diarrhea and muscle pain, followed by low blood pressure (hypotension), which can lead to shock and death.
