Differentiate between contamination infection and disease What are the possible outcomes in each?
Contamination implies the presence of microorganisms that do not necessarily colonize or reproduce in the host. Infection implies colonization and reproduction of the organisms within the host. Disease only occurs when the infection impairs the health of the host. If one gets HIV containing blood on the skin, they have contamination. If HIV gets into their bloodstream and reproduces, they have infection. They don't have disease until they begin showing signs and symptoms of AIDS. Contamination may but does not always lead to infection, and infection may but does not always cause disease.

The correct answer is: An infection is growth of pathogenic microorganisms in the body, whether or not body function is impaired. Disease is any change from a state of he…alth; impaired body function. The disease state is associated with the manifestation of symptoms such as fever, pain, aches etc., due to failure of immune system to control in the first round of the growth of infectious agent (s).
An infection is a disease caused by microorganisms like bacteria, viruses or fungi that has come inside you. Also diseases caused by greater parasites are sometimes called inf…ections. Most infections are contagious, that is: When you get some of the microbes from another person on you, they can invade you and multiply inside you and make you sick too. Diseases not caused by organisms that invade you are not called infections.
differentiate between non communicable and communicable disease? comm--highly infectious....can be caught and transmitted non comm--cannot be transmitted or caught....they… are inherited , genetic or developed through nutritional deficiencies
heads and tails
a communicable disease can be transmited via contact with the person i.e. Flu is a communible disease. but a non communible disease i.e. cancer cannot be transmitted in any wa…y, shape, or form to the other person.. Just like infectious diseases
We use three coins (quarter, nickel, dime) each are flipped only once. We get 8 possible outcomes (or four outcomes as an alternative).
non-inflammatory has to have these 3 features:. -absence of synovial membrane inflammation . -lack of systemic signs and symptoms. -presence of normal synovial fluid .
Prognosis is a prediction about outcome of disease.
Measles are one of the many types of an infectious disease.
yes it is! :/
The basic difference between these two conditions lies in the concentration of organisms in the wound. An infected wound contains a larger number of microorganisms than a cont…aminated wound. According to the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR), stage 2, 3 and 4 pressure ulcers should all be considered as colonized with bacteria. Proper wound cleansing and debridement should prevent bacterial colonization from proceeding to the point of clinical infection. A contaminated wound will heal, an infected wound will not.
In Infectious Diseases
Bacteria and viruses are both microscopic and therefore difficult to see, and they can produce very similar symptoms.
Given a specific event, a favourable outcome is when that event occurs. A possible outcome is an event that can occur.
When you role a die there 36 possible combinations What is the probability of each possible outcome?
Each outcome is equally likely and so the probability of each outcome is 1/36.
It is 1/36 since each outcome is equally likely.

Check temperature, look at mucuous membranes, possibly diarrhea.
