Portals of Entry disease.

“Many organisms that cause one disease if they enter one body site are harmless if they enter another, e.g., various enteric urinary-tract pathogens.


Epidemiology l.jpg

...is pretty crappy at dealing with cause and effect when associations are subtle.

Epidemiology

Do power lines really cause cancer?

What about cell phones?

Epidemiology

What about smoking, a crappy diet, and couch-potato tendencies?

Types of epidemiologcal studies l.jpg

  • Descriptive studies are simply those that describe the events and rates of disease. They tend to be the first sets of studies done.Quoted or paraphrased from http://dante.med.utoronto.ca/doch/Year1/EPIModule/Part6a.htm

  • Observational/Analytical studies then look towards finding out the causes of the observed rates. They are called "observational" since the epidemiologist does not intervene in the assignment of exposure.

  • Experimental studies are formal research experiments. The classic example is the randomized control trial where one group is randomly assigned a treatment and a control group gets the placebo or "usual" treatment.

  • Experimental studies are expensive and test a very specific question. Usually a great deal of descriptive and observational studies are done first.

Types of Epidemiologcal Studies


Relative nosocomial frequencies l.jpg

Just worry about top three and not about percentages. events and rates of disease. They tend to be the first sets of studies done.

Relative Nosocomial Frequencies


Nosocomial infections l.jpg
Nosocomial Infections events and rates of disease. They tend to be the first sets of studies done.

2 million acquire and 20,000 die, per-year in the U.S., from nosocomial Infections.

Nosocomial Infections are, by definition, hospital or clinically acquired.
