Summary

Infection Control and Disease Prevention Measures

  • Breast cancer affects 1/9 women in Long Island
  • Mortality rate measures the percentage of the population that die due to a disease within a specific period of time
  • Epidemic refers to the widespread occurrence of an infectious disease in a community at the same time, while pandemic involves a large geographical area affecting a large portion of the population
  • Endemic diseases are regularly found in certain areas, such as Ebola
  • Disease prevention measures include sewage treatment, water purification, pasteurization, and vaccination
  • Infectious diseases are caused by pathogens and can be identified based on their local or systemic impact
  • Communicable diseases spread from person to person, while opportunistic infections occur when the host's immune system is suppressed
  • The chain of infection describes the spread of infection in the population and involves components such as infectious agents, reservoirs, and modes of transmission
  • Infection control measures include standard precautions, OSHA regulations, handwashing, antiseptics, and disinfectants
  • Antibiotic resistance is a growing concern due to factors such as overuse, misuse, and transfer from animals to humans
  • Medical asepsis reduces the number of pathogens, while surgical asepsis removes all pathogens and microorganisms
  • The body's natural defense against disease involves first, second, and third lines of defense, influenced by factors such as age, trauma, illness, and nutritional status
