Aging,Smoking and Stress Pathophysiology Schematic Diagram

Altered oxygenation in aging, smoking and stress is a predictable phenomenon proven by science and researches over more than a decade now. Aging is inevitable as man’s body grows older and aged with time. Smoking is avoidable but overly addicting to be controlled. Stress is a part of our daily lives and manageable by our...

COPD Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

COPD or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is the most common respiratory illness that has affected many. It is considered to be the 4th leading cause of death in the United States which has even tripled for the past decades. The term COPD is often interchanged with COLD or Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease. They are sets...
Tuberculosis(TB) Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Tuberculosis(TB) Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Tuberculosis (TB) or known as the White Plague during the 19th century, has inflicted the human race ever since. It is described as a chronic infectious disease caused by an organism called Mycobacterium tuberculosis through droplet transmission, like coughing, sneezing, or if the person inhales the infected droplet. It can be considered as primary or...
Cancer Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Cancer Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

A. Definition Cancer is a condition that results from abnormal cellular DNA. It is a condition wherein cells mutate and increase number, with changes in their morphology and without any function. The increase in the number of these cells infects other cells and causes them to behave the same way, a condition termed as “malignancy”.Cancer...
Schizophrenia Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Schizophrenia Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

A. Definition Schizophrenia is a condition that causes bizarre and distorted thoughts, perceptions, emotions, behavior, and strange movements. It is not and cannot be defined as a single illness. Rather, it is a syndrome with varying symptoms and different subtypes. The general public has, for many years, misunderstood schizophrenia and caused a stigma to be...

A. Definition Anemia is a condition where red blood cells are not providing adequate oxygen to body tissues. Red blood cells provide oxygen to body tissues. There are many types and causes of anemia. B. Causes Anemia is caused by many different things at it has a lot of subtypes. However, the main presenting factor...
Kidney Failure Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Kidney Failure Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

 Kidney Failure or otherwise known as renal failure or kidney injury can be categorized to either acute or chronic kidney failures, depending on the severity of the disease condition. Acute kidney failure is considered to be the abrupt loss of kidney function while chronic kidney failure is defined as the progressive reduction of renal functioning...
Dengue (Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever) Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Dengue (Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever) Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Dengue is the most common and important mosquito-borne viral infection and can manifest as Dengue Fever (DF), which is often a self-limiting febrile illness or less commonly dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF). The major pathophysiologic hallmarks that distinguish DHF from DF and other diseases are increased vascular permeability leading to plasma leakage and circulatory collapse (Dengue...
Pneumonia Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Pneumonia Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Pneumonia is defined as acute infection of the alveoli and the surrounding tissues that is life threatening to most of the population. It affects all ages of both sexes, especially the immunocompromised, chronically- ill and aged clients. It is the 6th most common cause of death in general and the most fatal of all infectious...
Stroke Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Stroke Pathophysiology & Schematic Diagram

Stroke or otherwise known as cerebrovascular accident (CVA), or sometimes called as cerebrovascular disease (CVD) is the infarction of a specific portion of the brain brought about by insufficient blood supply. Stroke may occur due to thrombosis; embolism due to fragments of blood clots, presence of a tumor, fat, bacteria or air; intracerebral hemorrhage because...
Hepatitis Pathophysiology & Disease Process(Diagram)

Hepatitis Pathophysiology & Disease Process(Diagram)

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, most commonly caused by a viral infection.Inflammation is the body’s response to injury or irritation. Viruses are responsible for hepatitis in which differ from one another in some ways to share several traits, First they generally infect only hepatocytes and then on the other side bacteria can infect...
Hypertension Pathophysiology & Disease Process(Diagram)

Hypertension Pathophysiology & Disease Process(Diagram)

Hypertension (high blood preassure) also called silent killer is a chronic medical condition characterized by constant elevation of the systolic or diastolic pressure above 140/90 mmHg. Because hypertension is almost without symptoms except for headaches in some patients, it hides in the body without knowing it. Types of Hypertension A person with blood pressure levels...
