Diagram Of Infection
• Protection of health care workers from transmissible infections • Infection control practices in special situations. Introduction 3 Use of the guidelines The guidelines are generic in nature and can be used in any health care facility. Countries need to adapt them to suit their needs
Latent infections are common with other herpes viruses as well, including the varicella-zoster virus that causes chickenpox. After having a chickenpox infection in childhood, the varicella-zoster virus can remain latent for many years and reactivate in adults to cause the painful condition known as "shingles".
A chronic infection is a disease with symptoms that are recurrent or persistent over a long time. Some viral infections can be chronic if the body is unable to eliminate the virus. HIV is an example of a virus that produces a chronic infection, often after a long period of latency.
Folliculitis: Bacterial infection of the pilo-sebaceous duct (sebaceous gland and hair follicle) causing inflammation. Common in adolescence. Possible link with acne vulgaris. Impetigo: A bacterial infection causing thin-roofed blisters which weep and leave a thick, yellow crust. Highly contagious.
A Cycle Diagram showing Chain of Infection. You can edit this Cycle Diagram using Creately diagramming tool and include in your report/presentation/website.
The cycle of infection (see figure 1-1) is like a chain consisting of six links. To produce disease, each link of the infectious process must be present in a logical sequence. Removing one link in the chain will control the cycle of infection. The six links are discussed in the following paragraphs. Figure 1-1. The cycle of infection. a.
