Ugonjwa wa Uti wa Mgongo Husababishwa na Nini?

Written by

Homa ya uti wa mgongo hutokea iwapo utando unaofunika ubongo na uti wa mgongo utapatwa na maambukizi.
 
Ugonjwa wa Uti wa mgongo husababishwa na nini?
Ugonjwa huu husababishwa na vimelea mbalimbali vya makundi ya bakteria, virus na hata fungus. Tukivigawanya visababishi hivi katika makundi haya, tutaona kuwa bakteria wanaosababisha ugonjwa wa uti wa mgongo ni kama vile; bakteria wajulikanao kama Beta-streptococci, Hemophilus influenza, Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes, Neisseria meningitides, Streptococci pneumoniae pamoja na Mycobacteria tuberculosis, ambao pia ni maarufu kwa kusababisha ugonjwa wa kifua kikuu.


Aidha kutoka kundi la virus, virus wanaojulikana kwa kusababisha ugonjwa huu wa uti wa mgongo ni pamoja na Herpes simplex type 2, HIV pamoja na Varicella zoster.

Vimelea vya fungus ambavyo hujulikana kwa kusababisha ugonjwa wa uti wa mgongo ni pamoja na wale wajulikanao kama Coccoidiodomycosis pamoja na Cryptococci meningetides.

Dalili za ugonjwa wa uti wa mgongo
Dalili na viashiria vya uti wa mgongo ni pamoja na
Shingo kukakamaa na kuwa ngumu isivyo kawaida
Mgonjwa kujihisi homa kali
Maumivu makali ya kichwa
Mgonjwa kupoteza fahamu
Mgonjwa kupatwa na degedege (seizures) na mwili kukakamaa
Mgonjwa kushindwa kuvumilia mwanga (photophobia)
Mgonjwa kutoweza kukaa sehemu yenye makelele (phonophobia)
Kwa watoto, kuvimba utosi
 
Aidha, wakati wa kumfanyia mgonjwa uchunguzi, daktari anaweza kuangalia pia viashiria vingine vinavyoonesha kuwepo kwa ugonjwa wa uti wa mgongo. Ishara hizi ni kama vile
Mgonjwa uhisi maumivu kwenye uti wa mgongo yanayozuia kukunjua goti wakati anapofanyiwa uchunguzi wa kukunjua goti lake (pain limits passive extension of the knee). Ishara hii huitwa ishara ya Kerning au Kerning's sign.
 
Wakati mwingine mgonjwa anapoelekezwa kujitahidi kukunja shingo, miguu (yaani paja pamoja na goti) navyo hujikunja pia (flexion of the neck causes involuntary flexion of the knee and hip). Ishara hii huitwa ishara ya Brudzinski au Brudzinski’s sign.
 
Vipimo na uchunguzi
Pamoja na kumchunguza mgonjwa kuhusu kuwepo kwa dalili na viashiria vya ugonjwa huu wa Uti wa mgongo, daktari pia anaweza kufanya vipimo vifuatavyo;
Kuchunguza damu ya mgonjwa kwa ajili ya kuangalia uwepo wa vimelea vinavyosababisha ugonjwa na pia kufahamu ni aina gani ya vimelea hao. Hali kadhalika, damu inaweza pia kutumika kuotesha vimelea maabara ili kugundua aina ya vimelea na dawa gani nzuri zinazofaa kwa ajili ya matibabu (culture and sensitivity).
 
Kipimo kinachofanyika kwa kuchukua maji ya uti wa mgongo wa mgonjwa na kuyachunguza maabara ili kutambua uwepo wa vimelea, aina ya vimelea na dawa zinazofaa kutibu vimelea hao (Lumbar puncture).
Kwa baadhi ya maeneo yenye vifaa kama CT-scan na MRI, mgonjwa pia huweza kuchunguzwa kwa kutumia vifaa hivi ili kufahamu uwepo wa ugonjwa, sehemu lilipo na madhara yaliyosababishwa na ugonjwa huu wa uti wa mgongo. Hata hivyo vipimo hivi haviwezi kutambua aina wala dawa ya kutibu vimelea vinavyosababisha ugonjwa huo.
 
Matibabu ya ugonjwa wa Uti wa Mgongo
Kwa wagonjwa waliopoteza fahamu ni vizuri kuhakikisha wanapumua vizuri, na njia za hewa ziko wazi. Halikadhalika, iwapo itathibitika kuwa bakteria ndiyo wanaosababisha ugonjwa huu, mgonjwa anaweza kupewa mojawapo ya dawa hizi za antibiotiki kama cefotaxime au Cefriaxone. Aidha baadhi ya madaktari hupendelea kuongeza dawa za steroids kama dexamethasone kama sehemu ya matibabu.

Iwapo itathibitika ugonjwa huu umesababishwa na virus, dawa kama Acyclovir huweza kutumika. Hali kadhalika, ikithibitika kuwa vimelea waliosababisha ugonjwa huu ni wa kundi la fungus, dawa kama Amphotericin B au flucytosine zaweza kutumika. Mgonjwa pia hupewa Paracetamol kwa ajili ya kushusha homa na kuondoa maumivu ya kichwa.

Madhara yanayoweza kuletwa na ugonjwa wa uti wa mgongo
Ugonjwa wa uti wa mgongo unaweza kusababisha
Kuamshwa kwa chembechembe za damu zinazo sababisha damu kuganda kitaalamu – Disseminated Intravascular Coagulopathy (DIC).
Kuvuja damu kwa katika tezi za adrenalin na kupelekea kutokea kwa ugonjwa ambao kitaalamu unaitwa – waterhouse friderichsen syndrome.
Kwa watoto, ugonjwa huu unaweza kusababisha mtoto kuwa na kichwa kikubwa – hydrocephalus.

Ebola Yapoteza Ajira Kibao Afrika Magharibi

Written by

Zaidi ya nusu ya raia wa Liberia waliokuwa na ajira mara baada ya mlipuko wa ugonjwa hatari wa Ebola hawana ajira tena kwa sasa,umebainisha utafiti wa Benki ya Dunia (WB).
Inadaiwa kuwa wafanyakazi waliowengi wameambiwa na waajiri wao kubakia nyumbani huku wengine wakiachishwa kazi kabisa kutokana mamsoko kulazimishwa kusitisha shughuli zao
Hivi karibuni ripoti ya wataalam wa uchumi wa benk ya dunia waliarifu kuwa ugonjwa wa Ebola ungetarajiwa kugharimu ukanda uliokumbwa na ugonjwa huo kiasi cha dola billion tatu hadi nne.
Ebola imeleta madhara kwa takribani watu elfu 14 Afrika Magharibi,huku watu Zaidi ya 5,000 wamekufa huku 2,800 wakiwa ni kutoka Liberia.
Ana Revenga, ni afisa mwandamizi wa benki ya dunia hata kwa wale wanaoishi katika maeneo ambayo hajaathiriwa na ugonjwa huo wa Ebola nchini Liberia bado wanakumbwa na madhara hayo.
Taairifa hiyo ya benki ya dunia inasema sekta ya kilimo Liberia imeathirika kwa asilimia 70.

NEWS RELEASE

 

ACCRA, October 30, 2014—The World Bank Group announced today an additional $100 million funding in its Ebola crisis response to speed up deployment of foreign health workers to the three worst-affected countries in West Africa. The announcement increases the World Bank Group’s funding for the Ebola fight over the last three months in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone to more than $500 million.

In recent weeks, West African and global development leaders have appealed for a massive coordinated reinforcement of international health teams to the three countries in order to contain the epidemic. The health workers are needed to treat and care for patients, boost local health capacity, manage Ebola treatment centers, and resume essential health services for non-Ebola conditions. Current estimates by the United Nations indicate that about 5,000 international medical, training and support personnel are needed in the three countries over the coming months to respond to the Ebola outbreak, including 700-1,000 foreign health workers to treat patients in the Ebola treatment centers.

“The world’s response to the Ebola crisis has increased significantly in recent weeks, but we still have a huge gap in getting enough trained health workers to the areas with the highest infection rates,” said World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim. “We must urgently find ways to break any barriers to the deployment of more health workers. It is our hope that this $100 million can help be a catalyst for a rapid surge of health workers to the communities in dire need.”

The World Bank Group’s additional financing will help set up a coordination hub in close cooperation with the three countries; the World Health Organization (WHO); the United Nations’ main Ebola coordination body in Ghana; and other agencies to recruit, train and deploy qualified foreign health workers.

The hub will be designed and operated in coordination with the Senior United Nations System Coordinator for Ebola and the United Nations Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER), with technical support from the WHO and in close collaboration with other partners. It will resolve key issues blocking the recruitment of significantly more foreign health workers, such as pay and benefits, recruitment and training, safety, transportation, housing, provision of urgent medical care, and/or medical evacuations for any infected staff.

The funding also will strengthen the overall capacity of the three countries toward reaching the 70/70/60 targets established by UNMEER and WHO on October 1, 2014: Toisolate and treat 70 percent of suspected Ebola cases in West Africa and safely bury 70 percent of the dead within the next 60 days.

The announcement comes at a time of increased international focus on the need to bring more trained health workers to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

At a special meeting on Ebola called on October 28, 2014, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, African Union Commission Chairperson Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma said her organization would help deploy 2,000 trained health workers from African countries to the affected nations. At the meeting, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and World Bank Group President Kim welcomed the pledge and said they would do all they could to help. Also Tuesday, Kenyan health leaders told Kim that 600 health workers in the country have volunteered to go to work in the affected nations.

And earlier this month, Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, pledged $100 million to increase the number of foreign health workers, with much of the funding going toward medical evacuation services for foreign health workers if they were to contract Ebola. The European Commission and the United States earlier this month also pledged to support medical evacuation of infected foreign health workers.

Health workers take an oath to treat the sick – and so it’s no surprise to me that many health workers want to go treat Ebola patients at the source of this epidemic,” said Kim, an infectious disease doctor who spent years treating patients in poor countries. “So we need to find all ways possible to remove any obstacle that stops health workers from serving – whether it is pay for workers in developing countries, or the promise of evacuation services. Health workers who treat Ebola patients are heroes, and we should treat them as such.”

Kim also said that the hub could jumpstart the development of a more permanent global health security reserve corps from different countries for rapid and targeted health worker deployment in response to future health crises.

Even as we focus intensely on the Ebola emergency response, we must also invest in public health infrastructure, institutions and systems to prepare for the next epidemic, which could spread much more quickly, kill even more people and potentially devastate the global economy,” said Kim.

The new funding will come from World Bank Group’s IDA Crisis Response Window, which is designed to help low-income IDA countries respond to exceptionally severe crises in a timely, transparent and predictable way. Financing from the Crisis Response Window complements UN and other emergency relief efforts by providing immediate crisis response, supporting country efforts to provide care and essential support for affected populations, while helping countries return to a path of long-term development.

The World Bank Group previously announced that it was mobilizing $400 million for the three countries hardest hit by the Ebola crisis, of which $117 million has already been disbursed. This support—coordinated closely with the United Nations and other international and country partners—will assist the affected countries in treating the sick, providing essential food and water to Ebola-affected households, coping with the economic and social impact of the crisis, and starting to improve their public health systems to build up resilience and preparedness for potential future outbreaks. The World Bank Group also recently released a report that said that if the virus continues to surge in the three worst-affected countries and spreads to neighboring countries, the two-year regional financial impact could reach $32.6 billion by the end of 2015.

Mfanyakazi Mwingine Aambukizwa Ebola Marekani

Written by

Texas, Marekani. Mfanyakazi mwingine wa kituo cha afya aliyemtibu Thomas Dancun kabla ya kifo chake katika Jimbo la Texas nchini Marekani amepatikana na virusi vya ugonjwa wa ebola.

Marehemu Dancun ambaye aliambukizwa ugonjwa huo nchini Liberia alifariki duni katika Hospitali ya Dallas nchini Marekani siku ya jumatano.

Ugonjwa wa Ebola unasababishwa na Virusi na ni ugonjwa hatari unaoambukiza haraka binadamu na wanyama mwitu (hayawani) kama kima, sokwe, popo, ndege, mijusi, amfibia, na kadhalika. Ugonjwa huu unaosababishwa na virusi aina ya Ebola Virus ni wa mlipuko.
 
Japokuwa hakuna mazingira maalum ambamo virusi vya Ebola vinapatikana, lakini wataalamu wanasema virusi hivyo vinapatikana kwa mnyama ambaye anapatikana zaidi barani Afrika.
 
Mlipuko wa Ugonjwa wa Ebola umetokea katika nchi nyingi na bado unaendelea kupukutisha maisha ya watu wengi hasa barani Afrika. Matukio ambayo yamethibitishwa kuwepo kwa ugonjwa huo ni katika nchi za Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria, Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo, Gabon, Sudan, Ivory Coast, Uganda na kadhalika. 
 
Ugonjwa wa Ebola daima unasambaa ndani ya maeneo ya utoaji wa huduma za afya.Hata hivyo, matukio mengine yamekuwa yakitokea nje ya maeneo hayo na hayafahamiki.
 
Jinsi ugonjwa huo unavyosambaa:
 
Namna ugonjwa huo ulivyojulikana kwa mara ya kwanza hakuna anayefahamu kwa hakika. Hata hivyo, ugonjwa wa Ebola unaweza kusambazwa kwa njia zifuatazo:
 
1. Kugusana moja kwa moja na mtu ama mnyama mwenye ugonjwa huo;
2. Kugusana moja kwa moja na damu ama majimaji (mate au mafua) ya mtu mwenye ugonjwa huo katika familia;
3. Kugusa vifaa vya tiba vilivyo na virusi vya ugonjwa huo kama sindano;
4. Kutumia vifaa visivyochemshwa katika hospitali kama sinano;
5. Kula ama kushika vinyesi vya wanyama wenye ugonjwa huo;
6. Kuvuta hewa yenye virusi vya ugonjwa huo katika mazingira ya hospitali;
7. Kutumia nyama ya wanyama walioathirika kama kitoweo;
8. Kutozingatia tahadhari za kitaalam.
 
Dalili za Ebola:
 
Mtu au mnyama mpaka aonyeshe dalili za ugonjwa wa Ebola huchukua kati ya siku 2 hadi 21. Dalili za ugonjwa huo ni pamoja na:
 
1. Homa kali
2. Kuumwa kichwa
3. Kuharisha
4. Kutapika
5. Maumivu ya kifua
6. Maumivu ya tumbo
7. Mafua
8. Kikohozi
9. Maumivu ya misuli na viungo, hasa kwenye viungio
10. Kuvimba koo
11. Mwili kuwa dhaifu
12. Mfadhaiko
13. Kuchanganyikiwa
14. Macho kuwa mekundu
15. Kuvuja damu kwa ndani na nje
 
Nani aliye katika hatari?
 
1. Watu wanaofuga wanyama mwitu ama wanaoishi katika maeneo yenye wanyama mwitu;
2. Watu wanaotegemea wanyama mwitu kama popo kama chakula chao;
3. Watumishi wa vyumba ya kuhifadhia maiti;
4. Watumishi wa afya wanaowahudumia wagonjwa wa Ebola;
5. Watumishi wa afya katika hospitali ambazo hazina mazingira bora na safi;
6. Wanafamilia wa wagonjwa wa Ebola;
7. Watu wanaohudhuria hospitali ambazo hazina mazingira safi na salama;
 
Jinsi ya kujikinga na ugonjwa wa Ebola:
 
1. Epuka kugusa damu/majimaji ya wanyama ama binadamu walio na ugonjwa wa Ebola au hata maiti za watu waliokufa kwa ugonjwa huo kwa kuzingatia haya:
a) Tunza mazingira safi na salama ya hospitali;
b) Watelekeze wagonjwa wa Ebola;
c) Fukia miili ya waliokufa kwa Ebola kwa usalama;
d) Epuka mazishi ya kienyeji kama kuosha maiti za watu waliokufa kwa Ebola;
 
2. Watumishi wa afya na wanaowatazama wagonjwa wa Ebola wanatakiwa:
a) Kuvaa kwa usahihi vifaa vya kujikinga na nyuso, mikono na macho,
b) Na majoho maalum daima;
c) Kutumia sindano mara moja na kuziteketeza ama kuzifukia;
d) Epuka kutumia zaidi ya mara moja sindano au kutotumia sindano ambazo hazijachemshwa vyema;
e) Epuka kuosha maiti za watu waliokufa kwa Ebola;
 
JAMHURI YA MUUNGANO WA TANZANIA WIZARA YA AFYA NA USTAWI WA JAMII

TAARIFA KWA UMMA KUHUSU UPOTOSHWAJI WA UGONJWA WA HOMA YA DENGUE


Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Wizara ya Afya na Ustawi wa jamii inapenda kutoa ufafanuzi kuhusu taarifa mbalimbali za upotoshaji unaofanywa kupitia baadhi ya mitandao ya kijamii, simu za mikononi na mikusanyiko ya watu kuwa ugonjwa wa Dengue haupo nchini Tanzania.

Wizara inapenda kusisitiza kwamba, ugonjwa huo upo nchini na serikali kwa kushirikiana na wananchi inaendelea kutekeleza hatua mbalimbali za kukabiliana nao. Ikumbukwe ugonjwa huu unapatikana pia katika nchi nyingi duniani zilizoko katika ukanda wa joto na unaathiri takribani asilimia 40 ya watu duniani.Takwimu za Shirika la Afya Duniani zinathibitisha kuwa takribani watu milioni 5 wanaripotiwa kuugua ugonjwa wa kila mwaka.

Wizara inasisitiza na kuikumbusha jamii kwamba hakuna dawa maalumu ya ugonjwa wala chanjo bali mgonjwa anatibiwa kutokana na dalili zitakazo ambatana na ugonjwa huu kama vile homa, kupungukiwa maji au damu.

Jinsi ya kujikinga na ugonjwa wa homa ya Dengue

  • Kuangamiza mazalio ya mbu
    • Fukia madimbwi ya maji yaliyotuama au nyunyuzia viuatilifu vya kuua viluwiluwi vya mbu kwenye madimbwi hayo
    • Ondoa vitu vyote vinavyoweza kuweka mazalio ya mbu kama vile: vifuu vya nazi, makopo, magurudumu ya magari yaliyotupwa hovyo, nk.
    • Fyeka vichaka vilivyo karibu na makazi ya watu
    • Hakikisha maua yanayo pandwa kwenye makopo au ndoo hayaruhusu maji kutuama
    • Funika mashimo ya maji taka kwa mfuniko imara
    • Safisha gata za paa la nyumba ili kutoruhusu maji kutuama



  • Kujikinga na kuumwa na mbu
    • Tumia viuatilifu vya kufukuza mbu “mosquito repellants”
    • Vaa nguo ndefu kujikinga na kuumwa na mbu
    • Tumia vyandarua vilivyosindikwa viuatilifu (kwa wale wanaolala majira ya mchana na hasa kwa watoto)
    • Weka nyavu kwenye madirisha na milango ya nyumba za kuishi



Wizara inawakumbusha wananchi wa Tanzania kuwa, huu ni muda muafaka wa kuzingatia utunzaji bora wa mazingira yetu. Tukitunza mazingira yetu, nayo yatatutunza na kutuepusha na maradhi yanayoambatana na mazingira machafu.

Wagonjwa Homa ya Dengue Wafikia 376

Written by

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Wizara ya Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii, imesema kuwa wagonjwa wa homa ya dengue ni 376 ambao wamengundulika wameugua ugonjwa huo.

Mtaalamu wa Ufuatiliaji wa Magonjwa wa wizara hiyo, Dk Janeth Mugamba alisema hadi jana watu wawili walikuwa wamepoteza maisha, idadi ambayo alisema inaweza kuwa kubwa zaidi endapo upimaji utafanyika katika kila wilaya.

“Pengine idadi inaweza kuwa kubwa zaidi kwa sababu wengi hawapimwi, Ijumaa (kesho) tutatoa, taarifa zaidi,” alisema.

Alisema Wilaya ya Kinondoni ina wagonjwa wengi zaidi, ikifuatiwa na Ilala na Temeke.

Alisema huenda wilaya zenye idadi ndogo ya wagonjwa hazijaweza kupima na kubaini watu wenye maradhi hayo ikilinganishwa na Kinondoni.

Juzi, Waziri wa Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii, Dk Seif Rashid alisema hali ni mbaya na wananchi wanatakiwa kuchukua hadhari wasipate maambukizi ya ugonjwa huo.

Homa ya Dengue inaambukizwa na mbu aina ya Aedes Egyptiae.
