Use This Glass testing Method And Find Out if You Have Meningitis
9 Main Meningitis Symptoms You Should Know About Сhildren are most susceptible to meningitis. We'd like to remind parents about the ways of detecting meningitis and which symptoms you should pay attention to primarily. Meningitis is a disease connected with the inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. The etiology of this disease can vary, but the symptoms of different types are generally similar. It is considered that children are most susceptible to this disease. This is why Health Digest decided to remind parents about the ways of detecting meningitis and which symptoms should be paid attention to primarily. SUMMARY Sudden fever One of the symptoms of meningitis is a fever that starts suddenly. A child starts to shiver and keeps complaining that he always feels cold. The sick person’s temperature goes up very quickly, and it very often becomes an uphill task to bring it down. However, due to the fact that this symptom is a sign of many other diseases, one should pay attention to other factors showing changes in a child’s condition. A severe headache Headaches caused by meningitis are often not simply strong but unbearable. Moreover, the pain can impact a patient’s neck as well, but due to the "splitting" headache, he simply can’t pay attention to it. A bulging fontanel can be an important sign of meningitis in newborn babies. Double vision A person affected by meningitis cannot focus his eyesight, which is why his vision becomes doubled. Stomachaches, nausea, and vomiting A person sick with meningitis loses his appetite. This happens partially due to constant nausea that can be followed by stomachaches and vomiting. Sensitivity to bright light Another sign of meningitis is a fear of bright light because it causes watering of the child’s eyes and nausea together with a headache that becomes stronger. The rigidity of the occipital muscles A child with meningitis may be in a particularly recognizable position: lying on his side with his head thrown back and his legs bent. Attempts to unbend his neck are often not successful. Inability to unbend legs Even if you manage to bend the child’s head to his chest, his legs instantly bend at his knees, and they are impossible to unbend in this position. This phenomenon is called the Brudziński neck sign. With meningitis, the Kernig’s sign also appears, where one cannot completely extend his leg if it’s lifted at approximately 90°. Unfading skin rashes Skin rashes are also possible with meningitis. With this test, it’s very easy to detect a simple rash that is not connected to meningitis. Take a clear glass, apply it to the rash, and press it firmly against the skin until it turns pale. If the spots turn pale together with the skin, the person doesn’t have meningitis. If the rash doesn’t fade, then you should seek medical attention. If you want to know what to do if you suspect a case of meningitis in your loved one, do watch our video until the end!

Meningococcal Signs and Symptoms
Meningococcal disease is a rare, life-threatening condition. While the disease is very serious, in most cases early detection and treatment result in complete recovery. The infection is not transferred easily. It is spread by secretions from the nose and throat of a person, without obvious symptoms, who is carrying the bacteria that cause the disease. Close and prolonged contact is needed to pass it on. People infected with meningococcal disease become unwell very quickly and tragically around 10 percent of patients with the disease die, despite receiving rapid treatment.

Could new test speed up the diagnosis of bacterial meningitis?
http://www.healthinsurancegroup.co.uk/ Could a new test accelerate the process of diagnosing bacterial meningitis? According to recent reports, a new test that could speed up the diagnosis of bacterial meningitis has been identified. Recent reports suggest that scientists at Strathclyde University have developed the test which used nano particles and lasers to fingerprint more than one bacterium at a time. It is suggested that this not only allows for a quicker diagnosis but also opens up the door to targeted treatment. Reportedly, the age group most commonly affected by bacterial meningitis is under five. Suggestions are made that identifying the exact bacteria responsible is currently a timely process and if not caught quickly, bacterial meningitis could lead to blood poisoning and brain damage. Meningitis is a disease which can kill and severely disable very quickly. Bacterial meningitis is most common in children under five and it can often take time to diagnose precisely which bacteria are responsible, so we welcome any progress which leads to a quicker diagnosis. Early treatment is key to a good outcome, so both early diagnosis and targeted treatment of bacterial meningitis is essential to help prevent permanent neurological damage.

52-year-old female that presented with acute onset delirium and seizures. There is patchy ill-defined T2 FLAIR hyperintense signal involving the subcortical, deep, and periventricular white matter of the supratentorial compartment, worse in the frontal horn and periatrial regions. There is a more nodular region of T2 FLAIR hyperintense signal within the subcortical white matter of the posterolateral left temporal lobe and patchy T2 FLAIR hyperintense signal abnormality in the substance of the midbrain tegmentum extending into the tectal plate. There are no suspicious abnormalities on the diffusion-weighted images, and post contrast sequences demonstrate ill-defined enhancement along the perivascular spaces worse in the bilateral frontal regions. A differential of meningoencephalitis, demyelinating disease, and vasculitis was given. Lumbar puncture and CSF fluid analysis was performed demonstrating a cryptococcal meningitis. CNS cryptococcosis results from infection of the central nervous system the with the fungus cryptococcus neoformans. Disease is more commonly seen in immunocompromised individuals. Clinical presentation typically begins with meningitis or meningoencephalitis, headache, seizure or altered vision due to raised intracranial pressure.

8 Meningitis Symptoms That Everyone Should Know
Here are the symptoms of meningitis that you should know about. To the average person this may seem like a cold or flu, due to that assumption, it may not get treated with the proper care. #Meningitis #Health #MeningitisSymptoms Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music Summary: When we become sick, it is easy to mistaken our symptoms with the flu. Take meningitis for example, it causes stiffness, headaches and a high fever. These symptoms are all very similar to flu-like symptoms. Typically, meningitis is triggered by a bacterial or viral fungal infection, and if left untreated can become life threatening if the proper antibiotics are not taken. With that said, if you suspect that you or someone you know is suffering from meningitis, there will be certain symptoms and signs that will be evident. here are some ways you can avoid meningitis by living a healthy lifestyle. Get vaccinated: did you know that there is a vaccine for meningitis? According to Everyday Health, one of the most effective ways to prevent meningitis is to get vaccinated. There are currently two vaccines for meningitis available in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people get vaccinated for meningitis at 11 or 12 years old. They also recommend that teens receive a booster shot for it between the ages of 16 and 18 years old. So, whether you are afraid of needles or not, make sure you get the vaccine if you want to avoid contracting meningitis! Don't share your personal items: You can catch meningitis when you come into contact with respiratory or throat secretions from someone who has meningitis. So don’t share personal items with people unless you want to risk getting sick. This includes sharing personal items or kissing. So avoid sharing drinking glasses, straws, water bottles, lipstick, cigarettes, soda cans, and more. Wash your hands. Viruses and bacteria that cause meningitis can easily get on your hands and travel from your hands to your mouth. Reduce your chances of getting meningitis by washing your hands frequently, especially after being in a crowded place, coughing or blowing your nose, in a bathroom, and more. Boost your immune system: keep your immune system strong by eating healthy foods like fruits, whole grains, vegetables and lean protein. Make sure you get regular exercise and take good care of your health. This all can help boost your immune system and keep you healthy, preventing infections and viruses that can cause meningitis. Living a healthy and active lifestyle which includes a nutritious diet can do wonders in preventing sickness and keeping your immune system healthy. So spruce up your diet and your exercise regimen, and reap the rewards! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to Bestie : https://goo.gl/tUqro6 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bestieinc/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fighting deadly fungi. | Professor Jeremy Day | TEDxYouth@BISHCMC
Professor Jeremy Day explains how clinical trials are used to investigate possible treatments for deadly diseases such as cryptococcal meningitis. Professor Jeremy Day lives in Ho Chi Minh City where he leads the Central Nervous System and HIV Infections Research Group at the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit. The group’s interests include cryptococcal meningitis, talaromycosis, encephalitis, acute bacterial and tuberculous meningitis. Research focuses on large randomized controlled trials powered to survival, designed to inform physician decision making at the point of diagnosis. Intervention trials, conducted throughout Asia and Africa, drive a programme of basic science investigating the ecology, pathogenesis, immunology and drug susceptibility of the pathogens of interest. Jeremy studied medicine and political philosophy at Cambridge University in the UK, and completed specialist training in Infectious Diseases and General Internal Medicine in Edinburgh, London and Manchester in the United Kingdom, and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

Meningitis in Babies and Children -  Signs of Meningitis in Toddlers
http://www.essentialparent.com/baby-care-development/ Paediatric Consultant, Dr Anna Maw, talks about Meningitis in babies and children; the differing causes, and how to use the 'glass' test if you are concerned about your child's rash. Meningitis is an infection of the fluid that surrounds the brain and the spinal cord, and it can spread from that fluid into the brain itself. And it can be a really dangerous condition that can cause long-term damage to the baby's developing brain. There are lots of different causes of meningitis. It can be a virus or a bacteria. And the one we're going to talk about now is the one named Meningococcal meningitis, which is associated with a very characteristic rash. So, you may know about the glass test. And that's a test where you can press the side of a glass against the spot of the rash on your child's skin. Usually, in rashes, and they're very common in children, that spot will disappear when you press it and you'll be able to see that through the side of the glass. If you press the spot and doesn't go away, that's called a non-blanching rash, and a non-blanching rash in a small child is a worrying sign. And that's something where you should immediately take your child along to see the GP or to your local emergency department. Way back in 1999, my son Thomas, he was at nursery in the morning, and I picked him up, I think, maybe 12 o'clock because it's where you go at nine and finish at 12. And he was complaining that he was feeling tired and you know, "Oh, my legs are tired." I'd be all, "Come on, Tom." You know stop being silly, because sometimes he can be a bit lazy. But no, "Mum, my legs are tired." Got him home and he went straight to bed, which is quite unusual for him. And later on that afternoon, his father came back, and I said, "Tom has been feeling a bit funny, and he's been asleep for a long, long time." So we took his temperature, and it was extremely high. And we called up the doctor, and they said, "Well, just keep an eye on him." And, he woke up a bit later, and again, he wasn't looking right, he was feeling, it just didn't seem right, and if I remember then, Alex phoned up his mother, and she said, "I think maybe you should, you know, maybe go the doctor." And then we saw the rash, and only a few spots on his chest. They're not really spots, but tiny little deep red marks, and at that point, we panicked. And it was late, at this point, it was fairly late at night, and jumped in the car. I drove like a mad woman, Alex in the back. I went through every single red light, hand on the horn. I drove to St. Mary's, Alex took him straight up. I had to park. Within literally seconds, there were about six doctors around him, and they weren't quite sure really at this point what it was. And then, that was it. In ten minutes, no more than that, he was up in intensive care, and it was Meningococcal Septicemia, which is the highest form of meningitis. And even to the day, they said we were lucky that we were near to St. Mary's because St. Mary's is the hospital for meningitis. And we were lucky that we went there straight away. If we'd been an hour later, without a doubt, he would've been dead. And I'm very pleased to tell you that Thomas is now healthy, and survived a horrible, horrible, horrible meningitis.

How Viral Meningitis Infects? - Manipal Hospital
This animated video is an informative presentation on Viral Meningitis. Viral meningitis is an infection occurring mostly in children under the age of 5 years. It happens when certain viruses invade meninges which are the tissues that cover and protect the brain and spinal cord. The meninges are arranged in three layers; the layer that actually touches the brain and the spinal cord is called the pia mater, the spider web like middle layer is called the arachnoid mater, the outermost and toughest layer is called Dura mater. The most common cause of viral meningitis is a virus called enterovirus. Other viruses that can cause meningitis include the mumps virus, the measles virus, the herpes virus and many more. The symptoms of viral meningitis include fever, irritation, and loss of appetite, headache, and sensitivity to light, sleepiness, nausea, vomiting, stiff neck and trouble in waking up.

Former police officer diagnosed with fungal meningitis
Former officer diagnosed with fungal meningitis Originally printed at http://www.abc57.com/home/top-stories/Former-officer-diagnosed-with-fungal-meningitis-174844701.html By Judi Lykowski [email protected] October 18, 2012 ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- A total of 34 people in Indiana have been diagnosed with fungal meningitis. One of the victims is a former St. Joseph County Police Officer. "I've been through a lot of stuff my whole entire life," said Jack "Pappy" Pavlekovich. "I was never afraid of anything this is the first time I have to say I am really afraid right now." Pavlekovich, better known as Pappy, is a retired St. Joseph County Police Officer. He started his law enforcement career in 1975 with the Osceola Police Department. In 1977 he accepted a road patrol position until a few years later when he became a detective. Right now he's in a fight for his life. It started last month after he got two steroid shots at the OSMC Clinic in Elkhart. The shots were supposed to help relieve chronic back pain. He says the first shot was injected on Sept. 10, the second on Sept. 24. "I had a total of four back surgeries." Those injections were contaminated and now he's battling fungal meningitis. "At that point and time I was really, really concerned I thought we were going to lose him," said Tammy Pavlekovich, Pappy's wife. His wife says he had congestive heart failure when he was first admitted to Memorial on Oct. 5. Since then she's been doing a lot of research. "And there's a good possibility that in the end you die from it and that just terrifies me," she said. The couple has two young daughters. "I brought my girls up and my girls had a very hard time seeing their dad with all the IVs and tubes," said Tammy. "My girls cry every night that their dad is not home." She said his health has improved. "He's now sitting up he's talking to us which before he could not do," said Tammy. Pappy said he will give everything to this fight. "For Ashley, Jamie and Tammy," he said. According to the CDC website which was updated Thursday, 20 people have died throughout the country from the multi-state fungal meningitis outbreak and 257 people are listed as having the infection.

Meningitis - Spooky2 Rife Frequencies
Learn more Spooky2 RIfe Frequencies: http://www.rifetherapies.com/. Meningitis Acute inflammation of meningeal membranes, due to viral, bacterial (including Lyme spirochetes), or other organisms. Bacterial: use Streptococcus Pneumoniae, Influenza Haemophilus Type B, and see Listeriose, and Leptospirosis. Viral: use Echo, Coxsackie, and Meningococcus programs. Brain Meningitis, aseptic - Coxsackie A and B (Picornavirus: Enterovirus), Echovirus (Picornavirus: Enterovirus), lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (Arenavirus), HSV-2 (Herpesvirus), Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Acid-fast) Meningitis, bacterial - Neisseria meningitidis (G- cocci), Haemophilus influenzae (G- rod: facultative-straight: respiratory pathogens), Listeria monocytogenes (G+ rod: non-sporulating: non-filamentous), Streptoccoccus pneumoniae (G+ cocci), Group B streptococcus (G+ cocci) Meningitis - cryptococcal. In most cases, CM is caused by the fungus Cryptococcus neoformans. This fungus is found in soil around the world. Cryptococcus gattii can also cause meningitis. CM most often affects people with a weakened immune system, including people with: AIDS Cirrhosis (a type of liver disease) Diabetes Leukemia Lymphoma Sarcoidosis An organ transplant It is rare in people who have a normal immune system and no long-term health problems. This form of meningitis starts slowly, over a few days to a few weeks. Symptoms may include: Fever Hallucinations Headache Mental status change (confusion) Nausea and vomiting Sensitivity to light Stiff neck. Your health care provider will examine you. You will likely have a: Fast heart rate Fever Mental status change Stiff neck A lumbar puncture ( spinal tap ) is used to diagnose meningitis. In this test, a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is removed from your spine and tested. Other tests that may be done include: Blood culture Chest x-ray Cryptococcal antigen in CSF or blood, to look for antibodies CSF examination for cell count, glucose, and protein CT scan of the head Gram stain, other special stains, and culture of CSF. Antifungal medicines are used to treat this form of meningitis. Intravenous (IV, through a vein) therapy with amphotericin B is the most common treatment. It is often combined with an oral antifungal medicine called 5-flucytosine. Another oral drug, fluconazole, in high doses may also be effective. If needed, it will be prescribed later. People who recover from CM need long-term medicine to prevent the infection from coming back. People with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS, will also need long-term treatment to improve their immune system. These complications may occur from this infection: Brain damage Hearing loss Hydrocephalus (excessive CSF in the brain) Seizures Amphotericin B can have side effects such as: Nausea and vomiting Fever and chills Joint and muscles aches Kidney damage. Call your local emergency number (such as 911) if you develop any of the serious symptoms listed above. Meningitis can quickly become a life-threatening illness. Call your local emergency number or go to an emergency room if you suspect meningitis in a young child who has these symptoms: Feeding difficulties High-pitched cry Irritability Persistent, unexplained fever.

It's the height of flu season but not all symptoms of the virus point to influenza. Sudden fever and headache may also be symptoms of early meningitis, which often mimics the flu.
