Summarize the Infections and Immunization & Vaccination in terms of etiology, pathogenesis, clinical picture, diagnosis, and treatment rationale.
|The 5 General Topics of Disease Summary|
|1. Etiology & risk factors|
|2. Pathogenesis: The molecular mechanism of the disease process (How the disease process evolves)|
|3. Clinical Picture: Signs& Symptoms, Sequelae, and Complications|
|4. Diagnosis: Labs & tests (as well as screening tests and follow-up tests whenever applicable)|
|5. Pathophysiologic rationale of treatment|
This summary should cover the following two topics:
- Infections: General introduction to infections
- Immunization & Vaccination.
Infections: Talk about the following IN GENERAL:
- Etiology: different causes of infections (Bacterial, viral, fungal, parasitic) giving examples of each
- Pathogenesis: The steps of any infection (Colonization, invasion…..etc. Please check your Textbook)
- Clinical Picture: Incubation, prodrome, actual signs and symptoms, recovery.
- Diagnosis: CBC & Differential (How this can help differentiate bacterial, from viral, fungal or parasitic infections).
- The pathophysiologic rationale of treatment: Antimicrobials (Antibiotics for bacterial infections, an antiviral for viral infections, ……etc)
Immunization & Vaccination:
- The 4 types of immunity: 1. Natural Passive Immunity. Natural Active Immunity.
3. Artificial Passive Immunity. 4. Artificial Active Immunity
– Differences between immunization & vaccination. Indications (prophylaxis and post-exposure
