SIGNS OF INFLAMMATION!
How to Recognize Inflammation
An acutely inflamed tissue appears red, for example skin affected by sunburn, cellulitis due to bacterial infection or acute conjunctivitis.
This is due to dilatation of small blood vessels within the damaged area.
Increase in temperature is seen only in peripheral parts of the body, such as the skin. It is due to increased blood flow (hyperaemia) through
the region, resulting in vascular dilatation and the delivery of warm blood to the area. Systemic fever, which results from some of the
chemical mediators of inflammation, also contributes to the local temperature.
Swelling results from oedema, the accumulation of fluid in the extra vascular space as part of the fluid exudate, and to a much lesser extent,
from the physical mass of the inflammatory cells migrating into the area.
For the affected, pain is one of the best known features of acute inflammation. It results partly from the stretching and distortion of
tissues due to inflammatory oedema and, in particular, from pus under pressure in an abscess cavity. Some of the chemical mediators of acute
inflammation, including bradykinin, the prostaglandins and serotonin, are known to induce pain.
- Loss of use
Loss of function, a well-known consequence of inflammation, was added by Virchow (1821-1902) to the list of features drawn up by Celsus.
Movement of an inflamed area is consciously and reflexly inhibited by pain, while severe swelling may physically immobilise the tissues.
Special Promotion - PRICE REDUCED - for a limited time
Osumex 10-P Test is a non-invasive analysis to detect the presence of bilirubin,
blood, glucose, ketone, leukocyte (white blood cells), nitrite, pH, protein, specific gravity and urobilinogen in urine..
The test is a very good early and preliminary detection of health problems with:
- kidney function
- liver function
- acid-base balance
- bacteriurea - bacteria infection of the bladder
- uncontrolled and possible onset of diabetes mellitus (type-2)
- carbohydrate metabolism
Whilst the test is not conclusive but it is a good preventative measure so that the user can consult his or her professional health care
practitioner to follow up on positive results before it is too late.
Each Osumex 10-P Test kit consists of a test-tube, a strip contained in a pouch, colour chart to check results of the test and an insert
on usage and information. Please see images below.
