This is War: The Immune System and Influenza

 

The human body is designed and equipped to fight off viruses and bacteria that are abundantly found in the environment. A simple sneeze can spread thousands of bacteria and viruses and each has the potential to invade the body. The harmful organisms invade the body through the nose, however, the nose is protected with cilia or hair like structures that trap dusts and other particles and keep them from getting into the body. At this point, bacteria are easily neutralized by the nose’s mucus while the virus known as influenza B survives and travels into the throat from the nostrils.

Once in the throat, the virus will seek out a cell in the throat that the virus will use as a source of energy and allow it to replicate, in a matter of hours, there will be thousands of viruses in the throat. When the throat cells are taken over by the virus, the body releases killer cells that will attack the cells infected with the virus, however, killer cells do this crudely, and sometimes even the good cells get destroyed. At this point the body now begins to feel the pain that the virus in the throat has caused and the body will become weak and uncomfortable. The throat cells send of distress signals to the brain and the body releases a surge of chemicals that slows the body down. This is important so that the body will rest and gain strength while the immune system works.

Then, due to the increase of viruses in the throat cells, the body sends of an alarm and signals the brain into thinking that it is cold and hence the body temperature rises, this is when the body is having a fever. The rise in the body temperature slows down the virus and stops it from replicating. But with the fever also come headaches and shivers and a general feeling of being unwell. While the virus is wreaking havoc in the throat, dendritic cells gather information about the virus and bring the information to the lymph glands. The lymph glands contain many cells that are wired to fight off and kill specific viruses. The messenger cell has to find the right T cell for it to activate the body’s cells to fight the virus. When the right T cell is activated, it will replicate in thousands and then go to the virus in the throat cells to kill it. The T cells are able to precisely attack and kill the virus, while another cell in the lymph glands called the B cells are also replicating and then releasing certain protein materials that will rain on the viruses and kill them, these are called antibodies.

It would take a week for the body to successfully fight the virus, after the battle, some of the T cells remain and become memory cells, they store information about the virus so that when it attempts to infect the body, and the antibodies will remember it and kill it right away. However, viruses has the ability to mutate, hence, it may still infect the body in the future. Meanwhile, the body has revered from the effects of the virus, but some viruses capable of infecting another body can stay in the saliva or the mucus of the body.

Case study: Chest pain as a result of high blood pressure

 

Introduction

The following case study is a 52-year-old male client, John, who is a construction worker. John has been experiencing transient chest pains upon exertion. According to Robinson (2007), chest pain is a form of pain that occurs in the chest area. It is discomfort caused by the inability of the heart muscle to access blood rich oxygen. Chest pains bring discomfort to the victim’s neck, shoulder, back, and jaw. Fagard & Cornelissen (2007) urge that chest pain can be a symptom of a serious underlying health issue such as heart problems, hypertension, and angina or lung problems. The client had not been going for any medical checkup for quite sometimes, and when he had an appointment, his blood pressure was found measuring 150/100, which is rated for high blood pressure. The high blood pressure may be the major cause of the transient chest pains experienced by John. There is an urgent need to address the blood pressure to the normal level.

Precious Health Care Providers is a community health provider located on Madison Avenue, in New York. It has qualified health staff comprised of nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals. The health facilities provide care to patients at a subsidized rate.

The patient

This section presents a brief patient assessment including his case history as considered in the study. John is of medium proportion nearly six and a half feet tall, 52 years old American of African American ethnicity. John is married and has three children with whom they live together in an apartment in New York.

He works as a construction worker, though the profession is well paying it is seasonal. He does not have the ability to routinely pay for his health insurance, as sometimes jobs rarely come by, forcing him to use his savings to support the family. John considers himself a healthy individual who has seen him rarely pay a visit to health care facilities for medical checkups.  He believes that the current health problems affecting him; the chest pain and recently diagnosed high blood pressure is as a result of his advancing age.

Symptoms and diagnosis

This section provides a description of John’s problems and their diagnosis. John initially complained of experiencing transient chest pain upon exertion. Though the chest pain was periodic, it affected his work delivery in the construction, which is energy and force demanding.

Though the chest pain episodes, which normally lasted for approximately five minutes were resolved through rest. John’s wife was concerned about her husband’s health which led them for a medical checkup at our facility. John’s blood pressure has been found to be 150/100, a measure indicating he has blood pressure. According to Marik & Varon (2007), a blood pressure measure of 150/100 is indicative of stage ii hypertension.

Plan

This section illustrates the treatment plan to deal with the patient’s health issue. The plan includes the components, application, and outcome.

Components

The stage ii hypertension was dealt by through lifestyle management approach. The 150/100 blood pressure indicated the need for the patient to begin a healthier lifestyle based on diet and exercise for the long term. In the meanwhile, the patient was given pressure controlling drugs.

Application

John was immediately given blood pressure reduction drugs. Together with his wife, they were taken through the dietary requirement regime to ensure he feeds well. He was advised to join a local gym where a health worker will monitor his progress. He will be coming for a bimonthly checkup.

Outcome

The behavioral therapy whereby the patient had to enroll to the gym for exercise and take a proper nutritional diet is working well. John’s blood pressure has tremendously reduced and its now approaching normal. This has since seen a reduction of the chest pain episodes.

Conclusion

The author hopes that the case study presented communicated a lot on the need to undergo a medical checkup and the risks of high blood pressure. With the help of health experts, one stands to avoid some of the health complications that may arise as a result of one’s job or age.
