The human body is an incredibly complex and amazing structure. At best, it is a source of strength, beauty, and wonder. We can compare the healthy body to a well-designed machine whose parts work smoothly together. We can also compare it to a symphony orchestra in which each instrument has a different part to play. When all of the musicians play together, they produce beautiful music. From a purely physical standpoint, our bodies are made mainly of water.We are also made of many minerals, including calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, magnesium, and iron. In order of size, the elements of the body are organized into cells, tissues, and organs. Related organs are combined into systems, including the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, nervous, respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Our cells and tissues are constantly wearing out and being replaced without our even knowing it. In fact, much of the time, we take the body for granted. When it is working properly, we tend to ignore it. Although the heart beats about 100,000 times per day and we breathe more than 10 million times per year, we do not normally think about these things. When something goes wrong, however ,our bodies tell us through pain and other symptoms. In fact, pain is a very effective alarm system that lets us know the body needs attention.

Saliva is produced and secreted in the mouth producing an alkali substance. The functional unit of salivary glands is called a SALIVON.

Acute Tonsillitis – causes (viral, bacterial), pathophysiology, treatment, tonsillectomy [Video]

Acute Tonsillitis – causes (viral, bacterial), pathophysiology, treatment, tonsillectomy [Video]

“The tonsils are part of what is called Waldeyer’s ring. Generally when talking about tonsils we are talking about the palatine tonsils situated on both sides of the throat. The tonsils are important in the early years of life because the lymphoid tissues containing the immune cells are continuously exposed to many antigens. That is why until the age of 6 tonsils are typically hyperplastic and tend to regress by 12 years of age. The palatine tonsils have a strong blood supply from five different vessels, that is why there is a risk of a lot of bleeding with tonsillectomy. Zooming to the tonsils, we can see they have deep crypts and lymph nodules. The crypts are normally colonised by many species of bacteria and also exposed to many viral organisms.

Many viral and bacterial organisms can cause tonsillitis, which is inflammation of the tonsils causing tonsillar oedema, hypertrophy, erythema and pain. The inflammation may affect other areas of the back of the throat, including the adenoids and the lingual tonsils. This inflammatory response produces exudate either white, grey, or yellow discharge. Cultures are not often useful in distinguishing the offending pathogen because even you grow something they are probably commensal organisms anyway.

Generally with acute tonsillitis the pharynx is also inflamed and so a better definition is pharyngotonsillitis rather than acute tonsillitis.

Majority of the cases of tonsillitis are usually from viruses. Common viral organisms that cause tonsillitis include epstein barr virus (EBV), adenovirus, rhinovirus, RSV, influenza and parainfluenza. The most common bacterial cause of acute tonsillitis is Group A Streptococcus (GAS). We will focus on a the two clinically important causes of acute tonsillitis: EBV and GAS”

Laryngeal Nerve Palsy or Paralysis (Anatomy, physiology, classification, causes, pathophysiology) [Video]

Laryngeal Nerve Palsy or Paralysis (Anatomy, physiology, classification, causes, pathophysiology) [Video]

“Laryngeal nerve palsy usually refers to the palsy of the recurrent largyngeal nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerve is responsible for both abduction (opening) and adduction (closing) of the vocal fold. Therefore recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy is also called vocal cord paralysis and may be the first presentation of severe pathology such as cancer. People often present with hoarseness, coughing and exertional dyspnea.

The vagus nerve runs a complex course. The vagus nerve exits the brainstem and descends and supplies and innervates many organs including the heart, lungs and gastrointestinal tract. The right and left vagus nerve descends along the trachea behind the common carotid artery. As the vagus nerve descends down it gives off a few branches; the superior laryngeal nerve which branches into the external and internal laryngeal nerves. The external laryngeal nerve supplies the cricothyroid muscle, the tuning fork of the larynx, responsible for raising pitch.The internal laryngeal nerve is responsible for sensation of the larynx above the vocal cords.”

Oxford Handbook of Medical Dermatology 2nd Edition PDF

Oxford Handbook of Medical Dermatology 2nd Edition PDF Free Download

The second edition of this Handbook still provides a practical introduction to dermatology, with an emphasis on the medical aspects of the specialty. Skin problems are hugely variable (>2500 diagnoses), but we hope this little book will help you to make sense of what you find and will provide you with a framework for analysing clinical signs, so that you develop your diagnostic expertise. Dermatology trainees should find the book particularly useful, as may hospital doctors in other medical specialties faced with assessing skin problems, but it also includes much that will be of value to those working in the community and to medical students. The content has been updated, and we have tried to make it even more comprehensive. We include a new chapter on dermatogenetics and have added to other sections, particularly those on skin in infancy and childhood, cutaneous reactions to drugs, skin tumours, and skin and rheumatology. We discuss common and important skin problems, such as skin failure and emergency dermatology, eczema, psoriasis, blisters, vasculitis, and pustular rashes, but also include some fascinating rarities that we hope may inspire you to read more. Each topic includes answers to the clinical questions ‘What should I ask?’, ‘What should I look for?’, and ‘What should I do?’. Management guidelines have been incorporated, where possible. The expanded tumour chapter will help you to recognize and manage skin tumours, including those in immunosuppressed individuals, as well as to advise on photoprotection, but the Handbook does not include information on surgical techniques in dermatology.
