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!

When spectrophotometers and nephelometers are used in place of the human eye to detect agglutination, it is possible to measure quantitatively and to develop sensitive particle immunoassays. Latex particles may be build from different organic materials to a desired diameter, and may be functionalized with chemical groups to facilitate attachment of molecules Proteins and other molecules may be passively adsorbed to the latex particles or covalently coupled to functional groups. Some described automated latex agglutination tests have sensitivities of a few picograms of analyte.

The FilmArray Meningitis/Encephalitis (ME) Panel, approved for marketing Thursday by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), uses a small sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to look for meningitis and encephalitis. This new test, from BioFire Diagnostics L.L.C. in Salt Lake City, looks for 14 pathogens that can indicate these two conditions, according to the FDA. Testing for multiple pathogens at one time could help doctors make diagnoses sooner than they can with current testing methods, which can take up to three days to bring results. The FilmArray ME Panel could give results in about an hour.

Meningococcal Signs and Symptoms
 
01:42
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?
 
01:42
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.

VIRAL MENINGITIS Symptoms and Treatments
 
02:31
Viral meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges (the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord) caused by viral infection. It is also called aseptic meningitis or subsumed under lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM) due to its cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) test results. Based on clinical symptoms, viral meningitis cannot be differentiated from bacterial meningitis. Both appear as headache, fever, and neck stiffness but viral meningitis has no evidence of bacteria present in CSF. However, viral meningitis is less serious than bacterial meningitis. Therefore, CSF analysis is needed to identify the disease. In general, there are no medications to fight the virus that cause meningitis, so treatment is usually aimed at relieving the patient's symptoms by having a rest and fever-reducing medication.

Fungal Meningitis
 
03:10
Meningitis is an infection of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. Fungal meningitis is caused by a number of different types of fungi, some of which are found outdoors and even in some indoor environments. Fungal meningitis gained national attention in 2012 when a multi-state outbreak occurred that is believed to be the result of contaminated steroid injections. Hundreds of cases resulted along with dozens of fatalities. Fungal meningitis is not transmitted from person to person. It can develop after a fungus spreads through the bloodstream from somewhere else in the body, as a result of the fungus being introduced directly into the central nervous system, or from a body site infection next to the central nervous system. Signs and symptoms of fungal meningitis may include the following: • Fever • Headache • Stiff neck • Nausea and vomiting • Sensitivity to light & • Altered mental status Certain diseases, medications and surgical procedures may weaken one's immune system and increase the risk of getting a fungal infection, which can lead to fungal meningitis. Living in certain areas of the United States may also increase a person's risk for fungal lung infections, which can also spread to the brain. For example, bird and bat droppings may contain Histoplasma or Cryptococcus and soil in the Southwestern United States may contain Coccidioides. Even people living and working in contaminated indoor environments may be exposing themselves to types of fungi, such as Aspergillus fumigatus, that have been associated with fungal meningitis. These are just a few things to know about fungal meningitis, to learn more about microbial pathogens or other health and safety, occupational or indoor air quality issues, please visit the websites shown on the screen.

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.

More than 10 yeras after Cryptococcus Gattii showed up in island fir trees, researchers at the University of Calgary say they've mad an important discovery which could lead to better treatment of Cryptococcus disease. The illness is a rare but deadly infection. It begins a pneumonia, but spreads to the brain causing meningitis. Until now, little was known about how the fungus leaves the bloodstream and enters the brain."What we discovered is how it gets to the brain, why it stops in the brain...and then we used a drug to block that process," says Dr. Christopher Mody, a researcher at Calgary's Snyder Institute of Infection, Inflammation and Immunity. Doctors say this key observation could lead to better treatment.Testing was done on a mouse using a drug already approved for other medical uses. The findings are published in this months Journal of Clinical Investigations. Since 1999, 270 people in BC have become ill from breathing the fungus in. Most cases have been traced to Vancouver island. That makes the island number 3 in the world for the infection. The BC Centre for Disease control notes that up until 12 years ago, when Cryptococcus first appeared on Vancouver Island, the fungus was only found in tropical places. Why it took hold on the island, scientists don't know. What they do know is that Cryptococcus is spreading. It's now on the lower mainland, through Washington State and Oregon. Doctors stress Cryptococcus disease is rare but does kill between 10 and 25% of infected people. Researchers hope to perform clinical trials of the drug in the next 12 to 24 months.
