Signs of BPD -Barrel chest -Tachycardia -Shallow,rapid breathing -Chest retractions -Poor weight gain -Coughing -Clubbing of fingers
Rhinosinusitis -develops when a viral upper respiratory tract infection or allergic rhinitis obstructs the ostia and impairs the mucociliary clearance mechanism.
Classifications of Rhinosinusitis -Acute rhinosinusitis May be of viral, bacterial, or mixed viral-bacterial origin May last from 5 to 7 days up to 4 weeks -Subacute rhinosinusitis Lasts from 4 weeks to less than 12 weeks -Chronic rhinosinusitis Lasts beyond 12 weeks

Signs and Symptoms of AIDS -Fever -Fatigue -Rash -Headache -Lymphadenopathy -Pharyngitis -Arthralgia -Myalgia -Night sweats -Gastrointestinal problems -Aseptic meningitis -Oral or genital ulcers
Prevention of AIDS -Personalized risk assessment -Prevention plan -Education -Behavioral intervention
Life Cycle of HIV: Part 1 1)Attachment of HIV to CD4+ 2)Internalization&uncoating of virus w/ viral RNA and reverse transcriptase 3)Reverse transcription produces mirror image of viral RNA& double-stranded DNA 4)Integration of viral DNA into host DNA using the integrase enzyme
Life Cycle of HIV: Part 2 5)Transcription of inserted viral DNA to produce viral messenger RNA 6)Translation of viral messenger to create viral polyprotein 7)Cleavage of viral polyprotein into indiv viral proteins that make up new virus 8)Assembly&release of new virus from host
Phases of HIV 1)Primary infection phase 2)Chronic asymptomatic or latency phase 3)Overt AIDS phase These happen over a period of 8 -12 years
Primary infection phase -This may include fever,fatigue, myalgias,sore throat,night sweats,GIproblem,lymphadenopathy, and maculopapular rash&HA -Increase in viral replication -Symptoms appear 1-4 wks after exposure,last 7-10d -Try to start Tx in this stage
Chronic Asymptomatic/Latency Phase -No signs or symptoms -Lasts about 10 years -Cell count falls from normal (800-1000) to 200 -Can develop lymphadenopathy
Overt AIDS phase -CD4 cell count less than 200 -Without Tx can lead to death in 2-3 years -Greater increase for opportunistic infection and death
CDC HIV/AIDS classification -Category 1: >500 cells/μL -Category 2: 200 to 499 cells/μL -Category 3: <200 cells/μL
Clinical Course of AIDS -Typical:60–70% acquire AIDS 10–11y after inf -Rapid:10–20% progress rapidly&get AIDS in <5y -Slow:5–15% dont progress to AIDS for>15 years. -Longterm non:1% have been infected at least 8y,are antiretroviral naive,high CD4+&usually very low viral load
Consequences of CD4 Death -Opportunistic infections -Malignant tumors -Nervous system manifestations -Wasting syndrome -Metabolic disorders
Most Common Opportunistic Infections -Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia -CMV (cytomegalovirus) -Oropharyngeal or esophageal candidiasis (thrush) -Infections caused by MAC

Diagnostic Tests -HIV antibody-least expensive, Pos=color -Western Blot-more specific, uses viral antigens, pos=# of bands -OraSure test -Polymerase Chain Reaction-detect presence of virus rather then antibody to virus -
Criteria for HIV Intervention -Determined by the level of disease activity based on -Viral load -Degree of immunodeficiency based on the CD4+ cell count -Appearance of specific opportunistic infections
Medications for HIV -Nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors -Nucleotide analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors -Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors -Protease inhibitors -Fusion inhibitors
Reverse transcriptase inhibitors -Inhibit HIV replication by acting on enzyme reverse transcriptase by blocking elongation of DNA chain by stopping more nucelotides from being added
Protease Inhibitors -Bind to protease enzyme which prevents the cleavage of the polyprotein chain to individual proteins which would be used to construct new virus
Fusion Inhibitors -Prohibit HIV from entering or fusing with the CD4 cell thus blocking the virus from inserting its genetic information into the CD4T cell
Graves Disease -Caused by overstimulation of TSH
Atopic Dermatitis -Itchy,inflammatory skin disorder that is characterized by poorly defined erythema w/edema,vesicles,weeping at acute stage&skin thickening at chronic stage -IG-E hypersensitivity -Presents differently in dif ages/races -Topical Steroids for acute
Transplantation Rejection -Only requires T lymphocytes -Induced by:destruction of graft cells by CD8 and delayed hypersensitivity reactions triggered by CD4 -Types: Hyperacute, Acute, Chronic Host vs. Graft
Hyperacute Rejection -Occurs almost immediately after transplantation -Produced by existing recipient antibodies to graft antigens initiating a type III, Arthus-type hypersensitivity reaction
Acute Rejection -Occurs within first few months after transplantation with signs of organ failure; may occur months or years after immunosuppression has been terminated -T lymphocytes respond to antigens in the graft tissue.
Chronic Host vs. Graft Rejection -Occurs over a prolonged period -Manifests with dense intimal fibrosis of blood vessels of the transplanted organ -The actual mechanism is unclear but may include release of cytokines that stimulate fibrosis.
Parainfluenza Virus -Group of Lower Respiratory Tract Virus but manifested by the URT such as a cold
Squamous Cell Lung Carcinoma -Closely related to smoking
Adenocarcinoma -Most common in North America -More common in women and nonsmokers -Origin in bronchiolar or alveolar tissues -More peripherally located -Associated with scarring -Poor stage to stage progression
Small Cell Carcinoma -Small round, to oval cells -Highly malignant -Strongest association with cigarette smoking -Infiltrate widely, disseminate early, rarely resectable
Large Cell Carcinoma -Large polygonal cells -Spread early in development -Occur in periphery of lung -Invade bronchi and larger airway -Poor prognosis because of early spread
