Bladder Infection Medication
Bladder infections are treated with antibacterial drugs, and the choice
of medication and the duration of treatment depend upon the patient's
past medical history and the results of the urine test, which clearly
identifies the problem-causing bacteria. The sensitivity test is also
useful in helping the physician select the best drug for the condition.
Bladder Infection Treatments
The first thing to do about a bladder infection is to visit a doctor
immediately. Based upon your symptoms, the doctor will confirm that
it is indeed a bladder infection by examining your urine sample. If
any infection is found in the urine, the doctor will prescribe antibiotics
based on a test called a urine culture, where another sample of your
urine is studied to watch the growth of bacteria during a period of
Our urinary system consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.
The most important parts in the system are the kidneys, which remove
liquid waste from the blood in the form of urine and maintain a balance
of salts and other substances in the blood. The kidneys also produce
a hormone that aids the formation of red blood cells.
Bladder Infections And Pregnancy
Pregnant women are not more likely than others to get a bladder infection,
though if one occurs, there are more chances that it will travel to
the kidneys. According to some unconfirmed reports, about 3 to 4 percent
of all pregnant women develop a urinary tract infection.
Gall Bladder Infections
The gall bladder is a very important part of our digestive system. As
we all know, fat cannot be dissolved in water. Therefore, a special
system has evolved in our bodies for its digestion and its absorption
through the intestinal wall. An essential factor in this process is
something called bile, which contains substances that allow fats to
be emulsified. It also stimulates the secretion of an enzyme concerned
with the breakdown of fats. Although the liver secretes bile, it is
stored in the gallbladder until needed.
Home Remedies For Bladder Infections
Bladder infections can make life very uncomfortable for those who have
them. However, there is a lot you can do at home to make these infections
less unpleasant, and get rid of them quickly. The best home remedy
is to drink a lot of fluids. This is probably the single most important
remedy for immediate relief and comfort.
Anoxic Brain Injury
Anoxic brain injury is a type of brain damage brought about by the absence
of oxygen distributed to the brain. It is a condition wherein there
is no or little oxygen introduced into the tissues of the brain even
if blood flow is sufficient. This condition is usually caused by an
interruption of the respiratory. These interruptions in breathing may
result from various situations such as drowning, choking, applying
undue pressure to the chest and the abdomen, asthma and strangulation.
Brain injury or brain damage is the pathological condition wherein brain
cells are destroyed. This degeneration of brain cells may result from
a variety of situations or conditions, diseases and injuries-usually
to the head. These damages to the brain could be caused by a prolonged
shortage of oxygen supplied to the brain, certain infections, trauma
and neurological disorders.
Hypoxic Brain Injury
Hypoxic brain injury or cerebral hypoxia is a condition that refers to
a severe decrease of oxygen supplied to the brain, even though there
is sufficient blood flow. This condition may be caused by a blockage
in the respiratory tract or airways brought about by strangling, suffocation
or choking, conditions such as head trauma, cardiac arrest, carbon
monoxide poisoning and complications from surgery. In mild cases, cerebral
hypoxia can lead to memory loss or temporary amnesia, poor judgment,
impaired motor coordination and inattentiveness or carelessness. (read
Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury is a head injury that results from sudden trauma
which causes brain cell destruction or degeneration. Types of head
injury include contusions or bruising of the brain and intracranial
hemorrhage or heavy bleeding in the skull. This could be caused by
a closed head injury such as being hit on the head with a blunt object
or penetrating head injury or when an object penetrates through the
skull damaging brain tissues. (read more...)
