What does basically infection mean? So, according to biology and medical science, The term infection signifies the sum of biological processes which take place in the human or animal body upon the penetration of pathogenic microorganisms in the host’s body by injuring body tissues and producing a reaction on the part of the host.
If any type of infection occurs to any person, it should be treated properly and infections can even cause death. The main source that leads to infection is the growth habitat of the microbes or the infection causing deadly bacteria. The basic point is that Objects contaminated with life or temporarily inactive microbes may be called vehicles or reservoirs of infection, not sources of infection.
Following are some types of infections,
Man Acquires Infection:
it is further divided into two types.
A. From outside sources, which is known as exogenous infection, Let's take an example. From human patients with clinical infections
B. Within the patient’s own body, the infection is said to be endogenous.It is more dangerous.
Some examples are pulmonary tuberculosis, leprosy, syphilis, measles, smallpox, gonorrhea, mumps and influenza, whooping cough and much more.
It can be classified or can be explained as Endogenous infections may occur in carriers of potentially pathogenic organisms and human beings as well. when these previously harmless bacteria invade. Other surfaces or tissues in the carrier. It can be deadly or if not then very harmful.
The hospitalized patient can be expected to be more susceptible to infection due to their underlying disease, or by injuries acquired outside or inflicted upon them by surgical procedures and instrumentations in the hospital.Therefore it is wisely said that even if you get a small cut in your body, immediately apply medicine and if the cut is caused by any metal object then it is recommended by the doctors to take an injection of tetanus. It is good to take precautions rather than ignoring even small things because even small cuts and infections can increase the risk of various problems and can even cause deaths.
