Register to read the introduction… The means of escape are how the microorganism leaves the reservoir. These portals can be respiratory for example, viruses that cause the common cold, mycobacterium tuberculosis, haemophilus influenza utilizes this means of exit from the reservoir. Some microorganism have more than one means of escape for example, chicken pox can be spread via respiratory source or the patient’s skin. Blood bone pathogens such as HIV, Hepatitis B and C can be spread through blood and from fluid from the genitourinary system. The mode of transmission is how the pathogen moves takes place to place. This can occur through three principle routes direct transmission, contact transmission and indirect …show more content…
White blood cells are put into two different groups based on appearance in the microscope, agranulocytes and granulocytes. Agranulocytes don't have any type of visual grains in their cells, and are the monocytes and lymphocytes. Granulocytes have visual grains in their cells that help with their specific functions, and are the neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils. Together all these types of white blood cells coordinate a system that defends the body from infection, damage and even cancer. The sequence of events which occur during an inflammatory response can vary, depending on the type or cause of injury (i.e., bacteria, cold, heat, and trauma), the site of the injury, and the state of the body. In a localized infection, for example, the sequence of events can be briefly summarized in 7 steps.
First stage the entry of microbes,
Second stage the Vasodilation (widening of the lumen of blood vessels) of the microcirculation (small blood vessels) resulting in increased blood flow
Third stage an increase in vascular (a channel or vessel for the conveyance of a body fluid) permeability to

Fluids containing electrolytes and salts may be given orally, or may be injected through a vein to prevent dehydration. Fever reduction methods such as cool water or fever reducing medications for example, Tylenol may be given to reduce fever. Kidney dialysis in toxic phase cases dialysis may be needed to help the kidneys filter waste. Blood transfusion in toxic phase cases, a transfusion may be needed to replace blood cells and clotting agents through bleeding. Antibiotics for secondary infections fighting yellow fever may cause a person’s immune system to become temporarily weak. A weak immune system cannot guard against bacterial infections as it is normally will, so infections occur more easily. Antibiotics may be given to fight bacterial infections if they occur. Antibiotics cannot be given to treat yellow fever because yellow fever is a virus, and viruses do not respond to
