A case study applies academic theories to a real-life event. The theories help analyze a problem encapsulated in the event and allow the scholar to hypothesize a solution to that problem. Writing an.   Cholera is a serious bacterial disease that usually causes severe diarrhea and dehydration. The disease is typically spread through contaminated water.

Farrell’s exactitude in Dunstaple’s description of acceptable treatment for cholera suggests that ‘ On the Different Methods of Treatment Pursued in Epidemic Cholera’ along with other contemporary publications of a similar nature may well have also comprised part of his original research. 10 ‘ On the Different Methods of Treatment. Cholera needs immediate treatment because severe dehydration can happen within hours. Fortunately, treatment is simple and very effective. Very few people who get treatment die. The goal of cholera treatment is to replace all the fluids and electrolytes (salts) lost through diarrhea and vomiting.

Eventually, the Italian scientist, Filippo Pacini, would gain prominence for his discovery of Vibrio cholera, but not until 82 years after his death, when the international committee on nomenclature in adopted Vibrio cholerae Pacini as the correct name of the cholera-causing organism. Until then, many credited Robert Koch (   How to Control Cholera. Cholera is a disease caused by drinking water contaminated with Vibrio cholerae bacteria. Cholera is a life-threatening problem in developing nations worldwide, especially in the Indian subcontinent, southeast Asia.

Most persons infected with the cholera bacterium have mild diarrhea or no symptoms at all. Only a small proportion, about %, of persons infected with Vibrio cholerae O1 may have illness requiring treatment at a health center.

Cholera patients should be evaluated and treated quickly. With proper treatment, even severely ill patients can be. The Broad Street cholera outbreak (or Golden Square outbreak) was a severe outbreak of cholera that occurred in near Broad Street (now Broadwick Street) in the Soho district of the City of Westminster, London, England, and occurred during the – cholera pandemic happening worldwide.

This outbreak, which killed people, is best known for the physician John Snow's study of its. Cholera is an infectious disease caused by a bacterium called Vibrio cholerae.

The bacteria typically live in waters that are somewhat salty and. All people (visitors or residents) in areas where cholera is occurring or has occurred should be aware of the basic cholera facts and follow these five basic cholera prevention steps to protect themselves and their family 1, The risk for cholera is very low for people visiting areas with epidemic these simple precautions are observed, contracting the disease is very unlikely.

Symptoms and treatment. Cholera is marked by the sudden onset of profuse, watery diarrhea, typically after an incubation period of 12 to 28 hours. The fluid stools, commonly referred to as “rice water” stools, often contain flecks of diarrhea is frequently accompanied by vomiting, and the patient rapidly becomes patient is very thirsty and has a dry tongue.

Cholera is an infection of the small intestine by some strains of the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. Symptoms may range from none, to mild, to severe. The classic symptom is large amounts of watery diarrhea that lasts a few days.

Vomiting and muscle cramps may also occur. Diarrhea can be so severe that it leads within hours to severe dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. Get this from a library. Outlines of a new theory of disease: applied to hydropathy, showing that water is the only true remedy: with observations on the errors committed in the practice of hydropathy, notes on the cure of cholera by cold water, and a critique on Priessnitz's mode of treatment: intended for popular use.

[H Francke; Robert Baikie; John Harvey Kellogg; National Center for. Cholera is an infection of the small intestine caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholera. It occurs in epidemics when conditions of poor sanitation, crowding, war and famine are present Cholera is a serious condition.

A severe case of cholera can lead to death without immediate treatment Cholera is also called V. Cholera and Vibrio. This book describes how the city and science was changed after this epidemic.

This book is indeed a must read because the writer of this book describes one of the most deadly outbreaks of cholera on Victorian London, in relation to how it changed the cities, our scientific approach towards the disease in the modern world and much more.

It's about a cholera epidemic in London inand the author does a great job of explaining the various factors that helped cause the outbreak, including a population explosion and the lack of a proper sewage system. The book follows Dr.

John Snow, who was the first person to identify that cholera was spread by contaminated drinking water/5(K). “THE HORROR OF CHOLERA drives the sanitary revolution throughout the industrialized world,” proclaimed a subhead—in capital letters and boldface—of a article in Clinical Infectiousas a group of eminent cholera scientists declared in“Cholera can be a net benefit to humanity by calling attention to deficiencies in basic systems and services that need to be.

In addition to ORT, NIAID-funded researchers have found at the cellular and molecular levels other promising avenues for cholera treatment. Through an NIH Merit Award, a team led by Alan Verkman, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of California, San Francisco, studied the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR), a chloride channel in the intestines that is activated during cholera infection.

This chapter reviews the pathophysiology of cholera, focusing on the most common and important complication, dehydration; describes the clinical features of patients with cholera; and outlines treatment for patients with this disease. The major effects of V. cholerae O1 infection are to increase active chloride and bicarbonate secretion into the intestinal lumen by crypt cells and to decrease.

Cholera bacteria have been mysterious and scientists and medical professionals worked tirelessly to understand why the virulence of the germ was diverse in many strains (Coleman 67).

A recorded number of strains failed to indicate illness. The cholera germ is a. Cholera treatment centres can serve as sources of contamination if hygiene/sanitation and isolation measures are inadequate. Risk factors a) Poor social and economic environment and unstable living conditions, associated with: insufficient water supply (quantity and quality); poor sanitation and hygiene practices.

This theory justified the severity of measures used against cholera; after all, it had worked well against the plague. The length of quarantine (40 days) exceeded the incubation period for the plague bacillus, providing sufficient time for the death of the infected fleas needed to transmit the disease and of the biological agent, Yersinia pestis.

Treatment • Treatment should be gotten immediately, because extreme dehydration can become serious and lead to death very fast. • Oral Dehydration Salts, or ORS, is a re-hydration solution issued by the World Health Organization to re-hydrate patients of Cholera. • Also an antibiotic, called azithromycin can cut the symptoms of Cholera in.

Cholera is a frightening disease. Victims are wracked by stomach cramps and suffer intense diarrhoea. Death can come within hours. Though now seeming a distant memory in Europe, which suffered several epidemics in the 19th century before John Snow identified the link with water, cholera is still a serious threat in many parts of the world--Zimbabwe is a recent s: 5.

The / cholera outbreak in Harare, Zimbabwe: case of failure in urban environmental health and planning Abstract: This paper reviews and reflects on the cholera outbreak that rocked Harare. Rehydration is the first priority in the treatment of cholera. Rehydration is accomplished in 2 phases: rehydration and maintenance.

The goal of the rehydration phase is to restore normal hydration status, which should take no more than 4 hours. Set the rate of intravenous infusion in severely dehydrated patients at mL/kg/hr.

Lactated. Cholera can quickly drain the body of fluids, so timely treatment is essential. The primary method used to treat the disease is rehydration therapy, though antibiotics might also be. #1 – Mindmap + Book Outline.
