Environmental Injuries and Diseases
This course on environmental disease and injuries includes sections on venomous snake bites, spider bites, insect stings and bites, anaphylactic shock, poisonous marine animals, and hepatitis. The identification of types of snake bites and types of venoms is the main concern of the section on snakes. The spiders that are identified can be as lethal as some types of snakes, but many of the insects are not. These insects are included because they are medically important, in terms of pain and the possibility of an allergic reaction. Many people can show an allergy that will progress to anaphylactic shock. Some types of marine life can emit a poison that is more lethal than that of any snake.
The lesson on hepatitis identifies the various types of this disease. The routes of person to person transmission, and disease precautions, will be of special interest.
This course is part of our Injuries and Emergencies series.
Includes a questions and answers section at the end of each lesson.
