Exam 6 CA NS 2013

Anything that pertains to exam 6, that is important

Sexually Transmitted Diseases Infectious diseases most commonly transmitted through sexual contact Can also be transmitted by Blood Blood products Autoinoculation
Barriers to discussing sex with patient Embarrassment in front of friends, awkwardness to ask the older patient's about sex life.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (cont.) Can be bacterial or viral Usually start as lesions on genitals or mucous membranes and can spread to other areas
What is the best protection agains't STDs? Condom is best protection against STDs but still is not used frequently in general population.
Oral contraceptive effects on acidity of Vaginal/Cervical secretions can? Promote the growth of certain organisms, causing STDs.
2nd most frequent in the US. Highest in adolescent and african americans. Gram-negative Bacteria. Direct physical contact with infected host. Easily killed by drying, heating, or washing with antiseptic. Gonorrhea
Initial site is urethra. Symptoms develop 2-5 days after infection. Dysuria, Profuse, purulent urethral discharge. It is unusual to be asymptomatic. Gonorrhea - clinical manifestations in men.
Mostly asymptomatic or have minor symptoms. Vaginal discharge, dysuria, frequency of urination. Redness and swelling, greenish yellow purulent, may abscess after incubation. Gonorrhea - Clinical manifestations in women.
Usually from anal intercourse. Soreness, itching, and discharge of anus. Anorectal gonorrhea
Why would you be alerted to a woman saying she gets checked for everything once a year..? Because she is probably talking about the pap, and STDs are not tested in a PAP, only HPV might show up on a pap.
Complications - Prostatitis, urethral strictures, and sterility. Often seek treatment early, so less likely to develop complications. Gonorrhea complications in Men
Complications- PID, bartholin's abscess, Ectopic pregnancy, and infertility. Usually won't see symptoms so seldom seek treatment. Gonorrhea Complications in Women.
PO dose of Cefixime (suprax) IM dose of Ceftriaxone (rocephin) Early drug therapy for curative Gonorrhea

Caused by Treponema pallidum Spirochete bacterium Enters the body through breaks in skin or mucous membranes Pathophysiology of Syphilis
Complex disease in which many organs and tissues can become infected. Causes production of antibodies that react with normal tissues. Not all exposures cause disease. Pathophysiology of syphilis
Destroyed by drying, heating, or washing. Spread through sex, contact with the lesions, and sharing of needles. Spread of Syphilis
Exhibit Chancres - painless indurated lesions. Occur 10 - 90 days after inoculation. Lasting 3-6 weeks. Late symptoms can cause irreparable damage to bone, liver, or skin. Aneurysm may press on nerves and cause pain. Symptoms of syphilis.

Caused by Chlamydia Trachomatis. Gram-negative bacteria. Largely underreported because infected persons are asymptomatic. Transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Closely associated with gonococcal infections. Pathology of Chlamydial Infections
"Silent disease" symptoms may be absent or minor. Nucleic acid amplification test. Direct fluorescent antibody. Enzyme immunoassay. Chlamydia
Not a reportable disease in most states. True incidence difficult to determine. More than 45 million infected in the united states: 1 in 5 americans. Genital Herpes.
Caused by Herpes simplex Virus (HSV). enters through mucous membranes or breaks in the skin during contact with infected persons. HSV reproduces inside cell and spreads to surrounding cells. Pathology of Genital Herpes.
Recurrence when Virus descends to initial site of infection. Persists for life. Virus sheds even in absence of lesion. Genital Herpes Occurrence
Abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, malaise, abnormal vaginal bleeding, menstrual abnormalities Can lead to chronic pain and infertility Chlamydial Infections, Symptoms in women

Frequently infects genital tract and perineum HSV-2 herpes ALTHOUGH both HSV's can cause disease on mouth and genitals.
Burning or tingling at site, small vesicular lesion appear on penis, vulva, perineum, perianal areas, vagina, or cervix. Vesicles contain large quantities of infectious virus particles. Primary (initial) episode of Genital herpes symptoms.
Primary lesions present for 17-20 days, new lesions sometimes continue to develop for 6 weeks, lesions will heal spontaneously Characteristics of lesions of Genital herpes Primary episode.
Occurs in 50% to 80% in following year Triggers Stress Fatigue Sunburn Menses Clinical manifestations of recurrent genital herpes
Condoms, abstinence, and Monogamous single partner relationships without infection These are the best ways to keep from contracting STDs

Acyclovir (Zovirax) Valacyclovir (Valtrex) Famciclovir (Famvir) Not a cure, but shorten duration and healing time and reduce outbreaks. Drug Therapy for Herpes simplex virus
sometimes referred to as "trich", is a common cause of vaginitiscaused by the single-celled protozoan parasite Trichomonas vaginalis producing mechanical stress on host cells and then ingesting cell fragments after cell death. Trichomoniasis
THE most COMMON STD in the US. Caused by HPV. Incubation can be 10 years! Highly contagious. Frequently seen in young, sexually active adults. Minor trauma causes abrasions for HPV to enter and proliferate into warts. Genital Warts
Discrete single or multiple growths, white to gray and pink-fleshed colored, may form large cauliflower-like masses. What genital warts may looks like.
More than 100 types identified. Some harmless and self-limiting, while others have oncogenic potential, two thirds of early lesions are undetectable by visual examination. Random genital wart facts
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) Bichloroacetic acid (BCA) Podophyllin resin - For small external genital warts Chemical treatments for HPV genital warts
Cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen, electrocautery, laser therapy, use of a-interferon, and surgical excision. This is done if warts do not regress with previously mentioned therapies.
AIDS is an advanced stage of what kind of chronic infection? HIV
Can only be transmitted under specific conditions that allow contact with infected blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk. Transmission of HIV
Individuals can transmit HIV to other within how long after becoming infected. Just a few days.
Duration, frequency of contact, volume, virulence and concentration of the organism. This determines how likely it is to transmit the disease.
HIV is not spread casually, what are some ways that HIV is not transmitted. Hugging, dry kissing, shaking hands, sharing eating, utensils, using toilets seats, tears, saliva, urine, emesis, sputum, feces, sweat, respiratory droplets, enteric routes, or casual encounters in any setting.
What is the most common mode of transmission of HIV? Sexual transmission - coming in contact with semen, vaginal secretions and blood. Homosexual sex between men account for the majority of cases, but heterosexual is the most common between women and men.
Most common route of transmission for children, and what preventative measures can be taken? Perinatal transmission gives a 25% chance of transmitting to a child, but with use of ART the risk can be dropped down to less then 2%.

The median interval between untreated HIV and AIDS is 11 years. This phase is known as asymptomatic disease although fatigue, headache, low-grade fever, night sweats can occur. People can transmit HIV to others even when they have no symptoms. Early chronic symptoms of HIV

Made by detecting HIV antibodies and or antigens in the blood. Diagnosis of HIV
Late chronic HIV. Viral load increases. People with AIDS have a risk of developing one or more opportunistic diseases that contribute to disability and increases risk of death. Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. (AIDS)
malignancies, wasting, and dementia can result from immune impairment. Organisms can cause debilitating, disseminated, and life threatening infections during this stage. Symptoms of Late HIV or AIDS
T-cell count drops below 200 cells, Having one of the opportunistic infections, Having one of the opportunistic cancers, Wasting syndrome, aids dementia complex You must have one of the these to be diagnosed with AIDS.
enters the body through very small breaks in the skin or mucous membranes. Its entry is facilitated by minor abrasions that often occur during sexual intercourse. It is spread through sexual contact, contact with infectious lesions, and sharing needles. Syphilis
