GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF PREVENTION OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES

An important role in the epidemic process — the emergence and spread of infectious diseases — belongs to social factors.

In our country, much attention is paid to measures aimed at the prevention of infectious diseases.

Prevention of infectious diseases is a complex of various measures, among which the most important are:

• increase the level of sanitary culture of the population;

• carrying out government activities aimed at eliminating the causes that contribute to the emergence and spread of infectious diseases;

• conducting medical events.

Nutrition conditions and food quality are also of great importance in the spread of infection: eating contaminated foods can lead to the spread of an infection.

Neutralization of the source of infection (patient or carrier) is an important measure for the prevention of many diseases. For preventive purposes, food enterprises, including public catering, provide for mandatory bacteriological and medical examination of people and employees who come to work for the timely detection, isolation and treatment of patients and bacteria carriers.

Among the measures aimed at breaking the transmission of infection, an important role is played by sanitary control of timely and rational cleaning of settlements, water supply and sewage, the sanitary regime at public catering establishments, child care facilities, industrial enterprises, etc.
e. This group of measures includes disinfection work in foci of infection and at various sites.

All disinfection measures according to the time are divided into current disinfection, which is carried out in the environment of the patient or carrier carrier in order to neutralize the discharge, and preventive (preventive), which is carried out as planned, regardless of the presence of diseases; the object of this disinfection is mainly a public place.

GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF PREVENTION OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES

  1. GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT INFECTIOUS DISEASES. CONDITIONS OF THE ORIGIN AND DISTRIBUTION OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES, GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF THEIR PREVENTION
    The emergence and spread of various microbial diseases is due to the fact that some microbes under certain conditions can acquire the properties of pathogens. These are the so-called pathogenic microorganisms. Pathogenic microorganisms can cause various diseases, including infectious ones. It is known that pathogenic microorganisms are characterized by strict specificity, i.e.
  2. General requirements for the prevention of infectious diseases.
    In order to prevent the occurrence and spread of infectious diseases, a complex of organizational, engineering, medical, preventive, hygienic and anti-epidemic (related to the elimination of emerging cases of diseases) measures should be carried out. The complex of preventive measures includes: • providing the population with benign drinking water;
  3. The concept of an infectious focus. General principles of work in an infectious (epidemic) outbreak
    Epidemiology is a medical science that studies the patterns of occurrence and spread of infectious diseases in human society, and develops methods for their prevention and elimination. Even the medicine of the Ancient World used such measures to combat epidemics as removing the sick person from the city, burning things of the sick and dead, attracting those who were ill to care for the sick. In modern
  4. Infectious diseases in modern society. Basic principles of prevention
    Latin infection means infection. Infectious diseases include those that develop as a response of the body to the introduction and reproduction of pathogens - bacteria, fungi, viruses. After the introduction of an infectious agent, antibodies are produced in the body, complex protein formations by which humans and animals fight
  5. Basic principles of antibacterial prevention of infectious complications in surgery
    Risk factors for the development of postoperative infectious complications • Old and old age. • ???? Nutritional status (malnutrition, malabsorption syndrome, obesity). • ???? The presence of concomitant infectious complications. • ???? Violation of anti-infection protection systems, incl. immune status (oncological pathology, radiation therapy), treatment with corticosteroids and immunosuppressants,
  6. Question 29. Prevention of infectious diseases
    Infectious diseases are a group of diseases caused by the penetration of pathogenic (pathogenic) microorganisms into the body. In order for a pathogenic microbe to cause an infectious disease, it must have virulence (poisonous; Lat. Virus - poison), that is, the ability to overcome the body's resistance and exhibit toxic effects. Some pathogenic agents cause

  8. The importance of personal hygiene for the prevention of infectious diseases
    School is not only a “temple of knowledge”, but also a place of gathering of a large number of people. In the face of infection, the school can become one of the foci of the disease. This is due to the fact that children, not yet possessing strong and stable immunity, do not always adequately fulfill the requirements of personal hygiene. Teachers and parents need to remember: from how much children will be accustomed to monitor

Shahani) Neuromuscular diseases are impaired functions of motor (motor) units, as well as sensitive (sensory) and autonomic peripheral nerves. Each motor unit is represented by: 1) the cell body of a motor neuron located either in the anterior horn (for muscles innervated from the dorsal

    Immunity - the body's immunity to the causative agents of any disease: 1. Natural: * Congenital - inherited; * Acquired - produced as a result of illness, produces its own antibodies; 2. Artificial: * Active - use of vaccines (ready-made antibodies); * Passive - injected serum, which is made from the patient’s blood plasma

According to the etiology, 6 groups of PCs are distinguished: 1) silicosis-PC from inhalation of silica dust (silicon oxide) 2) silicotosis-PC from inhalation of silica dust, soda-silicon dioxide in a bound state with other elements # astestosis, talcosis. 3) metallokoniosis - PC from dust Me: Al - aluminum, iron oxides - siderosis. 4)
  14. Infectious Disease General Concepts
    Infectious diseases - an extensive group of human diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria, viruses, protozoa, etc. Infectious diseases differ from non-communicable diseases in such fundamental ways as: • contagiousness (contagiousness); • specificity of the pathogen; • formation of immunity in the process of disease. Infectious diseases can be transmitted from the patient
  15. PREVENTION OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES
    Prevention of infectious diseases occupies a leading place in the Soviet health care system; it is ensured by the implementation of widespread preventive and anti-epidemic measures, as well as measures for the sanitary protection of the USSR from the importation and spread of quarantine and other infectious diseases (including AIDS).

To teach practical skills in caring for the sick and the basics of supervision. Test questions 1. What is called fever? The clinical picture. The degree of increase in body temperature. 2. Tell us about the method of thermometry.
  17. Infectious Disease Prevention
    The main direction in health care is not to obtain new methods of treating infectious diseases, but to comply with preventive measures. In the complex of preventive measures, one can distinguish a number of measures aimed at three links of the epidemic process: the source of the disease; To prevent the occurrence of the source of the disease and to localize it: 1)
  18. General principles for the classification of diseases
    There are many classifications of diseases based on various principles. Diseases are divided for reasons causing the disease, for example, hereditary, infectious diseases, injuries, radiation sickness, etc. Acute, subacute, and chronically occurring diseases are distinguished by the rate of development of clinical signs of a pathological condition. According to another principle, diseases
