Mosquitoes have two sets of wings. The second pair look like peg structures called halteres. Mating of these insects usually happens while they are in flight although it may happen in land as well. Female mosquitoes attract the males by the tone of the female wing beat. They like to feed on sweet food like nectar and fruit while the females of other species like blood.
The name of the microorganism is the dengue virus.
Dengue is a flu-like viral disease that is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito (Aedes mosquito). It occurs in the tropical regions of the world and cases in the US are mainly travelers returning from abroad, although, risk is growing for people living along the Texas-Mexico border. Dengue hemorrhagic fever is a severe and fatal complication of dengue.
1. clean your surroundings specially in the garden, dark places and where water can become stagnant.
2. burn some dried leaves/grasses mixed with fresh cut grasses (let it smoke it drives away the mosquitoes) and/or spray anti bug at your home. ( Remember: It's your health is as stake here. THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL)
3. wear long sleeves,jackets,long pants or jogging pants when going outside specially at the forest.
4. put some anti mosquito lotion in the exposed areas.
5. when sleeping put mosquito net around your bed and take a bath. mosquito loves smelly feet. =)
The best way is to avoid mosquito bites. Use of spray/coils/repellant creams in the house and sleeping under mosquito nets. Use of nets in the doors and windows or any opening in the house, and spaying of ponds and stagnant water around the area will also help as it prevents breeding of the mosquitos
Whenever one is bitten by a Vector mosquito. The mosquito becomes a vector after it has bitten an dengue infected carrier - usually another Human.
Clinical diagnosis of Dengue is conducted by laboratory testing on human serum and plasma tested for DENV SubT and dengue NS-1 (DENG NS-1), dengue IgG and IgM to confirm the presence of infection. To learn more, Visit: Dengue Biospecimens for Research l Order Online
Children often experience symptoms similar to those of the common cold and gastroenteritis (vomiting and diarrhea) and have a risk of severe complications, though initial symptoms are mild but with a high fever.
nope, one can only treat the symptoms and hope to survive
which country inthe western hemisphere had the lowest dengue fever infection in the last five years? obtain and summarized.
Barbados, The Cayman Islands,St.Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago
9days for IgG state fever
13days for IgM state fever
In the 106 to 110 countries that it is found in, perhaps 5%.
Dengue is a dreadflul vectore borne disease . It hits in three forms
1. Classic dengue fever
2. Dengue Hamerrogic fever
3. Dengue shock syndrome
It has no medicines , no Vaccines. Only fluid management is the best solution when a person is suffering from this disease.
More importantly disease is spreading widely in developing and undeveloped countries. People are not capable of bearing the cost of treatment to disease.
After being bitten by a mosquito carrying the virus, the incubation period ranges from three to 15 (usually five to eight) days before the signs and symptoms of dengue appear.
Dengue starts with
pain upon moving the eyes,
Painful aching in the legs and joints occurs during the first hours of illness.
The temperature rises quickly as high as 104 F (40 C), with relative low heart rate (bradycardia) and low blood pressure(hypotension). The eyes become reddened. A flushing or pale pink rash comes over the face and then disappears.
The glands (lymph nodes) in the neck and groin are often swollen.
Fever and other signs of dengue last for two to four days, followed by a rapid drop in body temperature (defervescence) with profuse sweating. This precedes a period with normal temperature and a sense of well-being that lasts about a day. A second rapid rise in temperature follows. A characteristic rash appears along with the fever and spreads from the extremities to cover the entire body except the face. The palms and soles may be bright red and swollen.
we were told by our clinical instructor that one reason no dark colored foods are given to a patient with dengue is that they're watching for signs of bleeding which may be seen in the stool and urine. dark colored foods cause these stuff to also become dark in color and to determine if it is due to the food or blood, a test like stool exam has to be performed..
No, the common cold is not a symptom of dengue. Typical symptoms of dengue include a fever, headache, muscle and joint pain and a pain behind the eyes.
why is it important to study about dwengue
Is a platelet count of 134 with protein in urine normal
