Health tips on caring for patients with ampullary epidermolysis

Ampullary epidermolysis is a group of genetic disorders that may present themselves in various ways, from milder forms to more severe ones: affecting the skin and mucous membranes, involving the formation of blisters and vesicles after the slightest trauma. They can also affect other organs, in different ways.

Bronchiolitis due to human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV)

Bronchiolitis is an infection that causes the small respiratory passages in the lungs (bronchioles) to become inflamed and mucus to build up in them. This blocks the flow of air, making it difficult to breathe.

It happens more often in babies because their airways are smaller and more easily blocked than in older children.

Bronchiolitis is not the same as bronchitis, which is an infection in the larger and more central airways that typically causes problems in adults.

Treatment of diphtheria

In treating diphtheria, time is key. For this reason, it is important that it be administered within the first 48 hours after the symptoms appear, without waiting for confirmation of the diagnosis, which must be done in the laboratory.

Heart transplant

A heart transplant is when a new heart is implanted. When the organs to be transplanted are the heart and the lungs, this is known as a “cardiopulmonary” transplant. This procedure is necessary when the patient suffers from a heart failure that limits their daily activity and all other treatment options have been exhausted.

Flu

Flu is an infectious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus, of which there are three types (A, B and C) and various sub-types.  It is an illness that can present in a wide range of clinical forms: from asymptomatic infections to respiratory pictures that may undergo complications. The flu viruses circulate during the winter months in Spain, producing seasonal epidemics. The flu viruses that circulate each season do not have the same pathogenicity and different people's susceptibility to the viruses is not the same. The intensity of flu epidemics therefore changes year on year, both in terms of the number of people affected and with regard to the clinical picture of the infections. Anti-flu vaccination is the most effective primary prevention measure to prevent flu and its complications.

Diphtheria

Diphtheria is an acute infectious disease caused by the Corynebacterium diphtheriae bacteria and which only affects humans. It may show up as a condition of the upper respiratory tract (tonsils, pharynx and nasal mucosa). The bacteria produces an exotoxin that is responsible for the clinical symptoms of the disease. In adults, it can be fatal in 5-10% of cases, and in children this rises to 20%.
