A family of snakes comprising three subfamilies: Azemiopinae (the mountain viper, the sole member of this subfamily), Viperinae (true vipers), and Crotalinae (pit vipers). They are widespread throughout the world, being found in the United States, Central and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Their venoms act on the blood (hemotoxic) as compared to the venom of elapids which act on the nervous system (neurotoxic). (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, pp333-36)

Blood-sucking acarid parasites of the order Ixodida comprising two families: the softbacked ticks (ARGASIDAE) and hardbacked ticks (IXODIDAE). Ticks are larger than their relatives, the MITES. They penetrate the skin of their host by means of highly specialized, hooked mouth parts and feed on its blood. Ticks attack all groups of terrestrial vertebrates. In humans they are responsible for many TICK-BORNE DISEASES, including the transmission of ROCKY MOUNTAIN SPOTTED FEVER; TULAREMIA; BABESIOSIS; AFRICAN SWINE FEVER; and RELAPSING FEVER.

It hisses loudly when disturbed and strikes with great force and speed. Very prolific, it gives birth to 20-60 young. This viper is the leading cause of snakebite in India and Burma. (Moore: Poisonous Snakes of the World, 1980, p127)
A family of extremely venomous snakes, comprising coral snakes, cobras, mambas, kraits, and sea snakes. They are widely distributed, being found in the southern United States, South America, Africa, southern Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. The elapids include three subfamilies: Elapinae, Hydrophiinae, and Lauticaudinae. Like the viperids, they have venom fangs in the front part of the upper jaw. The mambas of Africa are the most dangerous of all snakes by virtue of their size, speed, and highly toxic venom. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p329-33)
Bacterial, viral, or parasitic diseases transmitted to humans and animals by the bite of infected ticks. The families Ixodidae and Argasidae contain many bloodsucking species that are important pests of man and domestic birds and mammals and probably exceed all other arthropods in the number and variety of disease agents they transmit. Many of the tick-borne diseases are zoonotic.

A look at forensic dentistry--Part 2: teeth as weapons of violence--identification of bitemark perpetrators. (1/52)

Teeth are often used as weapons when one person attacks another or when a victim tries to ward off an assailant. It is relatively simple to record the evidence from the injury and the teeth for comparison of the shapes, sizes and pattern that are present. However, this comparative analysis is often very difficult, especially since human skin is curved, elastic, distortable and undergoing oedema. In many cases, though, conclusions can be reached about any role a suspect may have played in a crime. Additionally, traces of saliva deposited during biting can be recovered to acquire DNA evidence and this can be analyzed to determine who contributed this biological evidence. If dentists are aware of the various methods to collect and preserve bitemark evidence from victims and suspects it may be possible for them to assist the justice system to identify and prosecute violent offenders. This paper reviews the recognition and recovery of this evidence and provides insight into modern methods used to investigate bitemark evidence from heinous crimes.  (+info)

Comparative in vitro activity of ertapenem and 11 other antimicrobial agents against aerobic and anaerobic pathogens isolated from skin and soft tissue animal and human bite wound infections. (2/52)

We studied the comparative in vitro activity of ertapenem, a new carbapenem, against 240 aerobic and 180 anaerobic recent clinical bite isolates using an agar dilution method and an inoculum of 10(4) cfu/spot for aerobes and 10(5) cfu/spot for anaerobes. Ertapenem inhibited 410/420 (98%) of the isolates tested at < or = 4 mg/L with only 4/5 Campylobacter gracilis and 1/3 Campylobacter rectus strains requiring . or = 16 mg/L for inhibition. Ertapenem was only moderately active (MIC 8 mg/L) against 4/6 Enterococcus faecalis and 1/11 Staphylococcus epidermidis strains. All Pasteurella multocida, Pasteurella septica, Pasteurella canis, Pasteurella dagmatis, Moraxella spp. and EF-4 isolates were inhibited at < or = 0.015 mg/L. MIC(90)s for other aerobic genera and species were as follows: Corynebacterium spp., 4 mg/L; Staphylococcus aureus, 0.25 mg/L; Staphylococcus epidermidis, 4 mg/L; other coagulasenegative staphylococci, 0.25 mg/L; Streptococcus milleri group, 0.5 mg/L; Eikenella corrodens, 0.03 mg/L; and Bergeyella zoohelcum, 0.5 mg/L. For anaerobes the range of MICs and MIC(90)s were: Prevotella ssp., < or = 0.015-0.5, 0.125 mg/L; Porphyromonas spp., < or = 0.015-0.03, 0.015 mg/L; Fusobacterium spp., 0.015-0.125, 0.03 mg/L; Bacteroides tectum, 0.03-0.125, 0.125 mg/L; and Peptostreptococcus spp., 0.01-2, 1 mg/L. Ertapenem showed excellent potency against the full range of animal and human bite wound pathogens.  (+info)

Strangulation injuries. (3/52)

Strangulation accounts for 10% of all violent deaths in the United States. Many people who are strangled survive. These survivors may have minimal visible external findings. Because of the slowly compressive nature of the forces involved in strangulation, clinicians should be aware of the potential for significant complications including laryngeal fractures, upper airway edema, and vocal cord immobility. Survivors are most often assaulted during an incident of intimate partner violence or sexual assault, and need to be specifically asked if they were strangled. Many survivors of strangulation will not volunteer this information. Accurate documentation in the medical chart is essential to substantiate a survivor's account of the incident. Medical providers are a significant community resource with the responsibility to provide expert information to patients and other systems working with survivors of strangulation. This case study reviews a strangulation victim who exhibited some classic findings.  (+info)

Clinical presentation and bacteriologic analysis of infected human bites in patients presenting to emergency departments. (4/52)

Previous studies of infected human bites have been limited by small numbers of patients and suboptimal microbiologic methodology. We conducted a multicenter prospective study of 50 patients with infected human bites. Seventy percent of the patients and assailants were young adult men. Fifty-six percent of injuries were clenched-fist injuries and 44% were occlusional bites. Most injuries were to the hands. Fifty-four percent of patients were hospitalized. The median number of isolates per wound culture was 4 (3 aerobes and 1 anaerobe); aerobes and anaerobes were isolated from 54% of wounds, aerobes alone were isolated from 44%, and anaerobes alone were isolated from 2%. Isolates included Streptococcus anginosus (52%), Staphylococcus aureus (30%), Eikenella corrodens (30%), Fusobacterium nucleatum (32%), and Prevotella melaninogenica (22%). Candida species were found in 8%. Fusobacterium, Peptostreptococcus, and Candida species were isolated more frequently from occlusional bites than from clenched-fist injuries. Many strains of Prevotella and S. aureus were beta-lactamase producers. Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and moxifloxacin demonstrated excellent in vitro activity against common isolates.  (+info)

Common acute hand infections. (5/52)

Hand infections can result in significant morbidity if not appropriately diagnosed and treated. Host factors, location, and circumstances of the infection are important guides to initial treatment strategies. Many hand infections improve with early splinting, elevation, appropriate antibiotics and, if an abscess is present, incision and drainage. Tetanus prophylaxis is indicated in patients who have at-risk infections. Paronychia, an infection of the epidermis bordering the nail, commonly is precipitated by localized trauma. Treatment consists of incision and drainage, warm-water soaks and, sometimes, oral antibiotics. A felon is an abscess of the distal pulp of the fingertip. An early felon may be amenable to elevation, oral antibiotics, and warm water or saline soaks. A more advanced felon requires incision and drainage. Herpetic whitlow is a painful infection caused by the herpes simplex virus. Early treatment with oral antiviral agents may hasten healing. Pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis and clenched-fist injuries are more serious infections that often require surgical intervention. Pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis is an acute synovial space infection involving a flexor tendon sheath. Treatment consists of parenteral antibiotics and sheath irrigation. A clenched-fist injury usually is the result of an altercation and often involves injury to the extensor tendon, joint capsule, and bone. Wound exploration, copious irrigation, and appropriate antibiotics can prevent undesired outcomes.  (+info)

Hand and wrist injuries: Part II. Emergent evaluation. (6/52)

Primary care physicians must be able to recognize wrist and hand injuries that require immediate attention. A complete history and physical examination, including assessment of distal limb function, are essential. Hemorrhage control is necessary in patients with vessel lacerations and amputations. Amputations require an understanding of the indications and contraindications in the management of the amputated limb. High-pressure injection injuries and compartment syndromes require a high index of suspicion for early recognition. Infectious entities include "fight bite," open fractures, purulent tenosynovitis, animal bites, and retained foreign bodies. Tendon disruptions should be recognized early to optimize management.  (+info)

Forensic odontology: the roles and responsibilities of the dentist. (7/52)

Dentistry has much to offer law enforcement in the detection and solution of crime or in civil proceedings. Forensic dental fieldwork requires an interdisciplinary knowledge of dental science. Most often the role of the forensic odontologist is to establish a person's identity. Teeth, with their physiologic variations, pathoses and effects of therapy, record information that remains throughout life and beyond. The teeth may also be used as weapons and, under certain circumstances, may leave information about the identity of the biter. Forensic odontology has an important role in the recognition of abuse among persons of all ages. Dental professionals have a major role to play in keeping accurate dental records and providing all necessary information so that legal authorities may recognize malpractice, negligence, fraud or abuse, and identify unknown humans.  (+info)

Best evidence topic report. Are antibiotics indicated following human bites? (8/52)

A short cut review was carried out to establish whether antibiotics are indicated for human bites. Eighty nine papers were found using the reported search, of which two represent the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The author, date and country of publication, patient group studied, study type, relevant outcomes, results, and study weaknesses of these best papers are tabulated. Prophylactic antibiotics should be given to all patients with human bites to the hands, feet, and skin overlying joints or cartilaginous structures, and to all patients with bites that penetrate deeper than the epidermal layer.  (+info)

Human bites almost always require antibiotics and fight bites always require an operating room. Unfortunately, many patients do not present immediately after the event because of the initial unassuming nature of the wound. Patients will often not present to a physician until after colonization by a number of microorganisms has already occurred and the wound starts to exhibit macroscopic signs of infection. The infection rate can be as high as 47% for any human bite that is not treated with antibiotics.6. Radiographs are indicated in all cases in order to rule out any foreign objects, such as dislodged teeth.8 Imaging will also assist in ruling out fracture, and in chronic presentations, osteomyelitis.. Initial treatment involves copious irrigation and exploration. If a joint capsule or tendon is involved, it must be washed out and immobilized.8 All fight bites need to be taken to the operating room for irrigation and debridement of the wound and joint capsule. If the wound is located on a limb, ...

Cleaning and bandaging the wound are frequent treatments for human bites.. If your child has received a bite, wash your hands with antibacterial soap before tending to the bite. If possible, wear clean medical gloves to reduce the risk of transmitting any bacteria into the wound.. If the wound is mild and theres no blood, wash it with soap and water. Avoid scrubbing the wound. Use sterile bandages to cover it. Dont try to close the wound with tape, as this may trap bacteria in the wound.. If theres bleeding, raise that area of the body and apply pressure to the wound using a clean cloth or towel.. After cleaning and bandaging the wound, call your doctor right away.. ...

A case of acquired arteriovenous fistula with multiple aneurysmal sacs of the left fifth finger has been presented in an adult, resulting from a human bite in childhood. The digit, previously normal, showed characteristic physical chances of A-V fistula following the trauma, including increased growth, venous distension, increased local temperature and more rapid growth of the nail. In addition, there were occasional episodes of transient subungual spurting of arterialized blood over a 15-year period. Surgical excision of aneurysmal sacs and ligation of visible communications on two separate occasions resulted in the disappearance of symptoms, enabling the patient to resume her vocation as a typist ...

The nations first execution of the new year was set for Jan. 15 here in Texas. But now, that execution will not happen as scheduled. In a rare last-minute move, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals issued a stay of the execution of Blaine Milam, a 29-year-old convicted in the death of his girlfriends 13-month-old baby daughter. In December 2008, police were called to Milams trailer in Rusk County where they found the body of Amora Bain Carson. The medical examiner said there were 24 human bite marks on the body, along with signs of blunt-force trauma and sexual assault. Prosecutors alleged that the childs death came during a botched exorcism. The case drew national attention. Prosecutors linked Milam to several of the bite marks found on the body of the child. Milam also apparently told his sister, from jail, where to find a pipe wrench used in the assault, and he apparently confessed to a nurse in Jail. All of this came out during the trial. Now, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has ...

Introduction: Traumatic lip injuries present major challenges in terms of reconstructive options and the outcome of surgical management. The aetiology of lip injuries includes human bite as interpersonal violence. Bite wounds are always considered to be complex injuries contaminated with unique polymicrobial inoculum. A classification of facial bite injuries has been included and the surgical management of these lesions has also been discussed. We report a rare bite injury on the lower lip that resembled an ulcerative process. Case presentation: A 30-year-old African man presented with a severe tissue defect on his lower lip to a Dental and Oral Department in Tanzania. He explained that 12 days ago he had been involved in a fight and someone had bitten his lower lip. An orofacial examination confirmed a serious loss of lip tissue that resembled a chronic ulcerative process. Accurate assessment of the lesion was made by a thorough evaluation of some parameters such as size, depth, presence of ...

Is a dogs mouth really cleaner that a humans? Some say yes. Most experts believe youll be no worse for the wear from a smooch from your pooch. Some recent studies show that saliva from a dogs mouth can actually kill certain types of bacteria. Researchers found that dog saliva killed E. coli and streptococcus canis, which are both harmful bacteria, that can make us sick. (Dog Science Review, 2005) When Bow-Wow Newsletter asked a veterinarian about the cleanliness of a dogs mouth, he suggested that we must keep in min that a dogs tongue serves as both a washcloth and toilet paper. (Bow-Wow Newsletter, 2003). As gross as this may seem, mounting evidence shows that dog saliva may have the ability to kill bacteria. In numerous studies, it has been shown that the infection rate for human bites was higher than for the infection for dog bites. The question remains - can dog saliva kill bacteria?. This means that if a person was bitten by another person, the chance of that wound getting infected is ...
Who Needs It. Occupational exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens regulation 29 CFR 1910.1030 (Federal OSHA) and 8 CCR 5193 (California OSHA) cover employees who, as a result of doing their job, could come in contact with blood or other potentially infectious material through the eyes, skin, nose or mouth, or under the skin by means of puncture with a sharp object such as a blade or metal shaving, a needle-stick, cut, or human bite.. It is about preventing on-the-job transmission of hepatitis B and hepatitis C, both diseases that affect the liver, and the HIV virus which causes AIDS.. Required for employees who render emergency medical care (in-house first aid team) or handle blood in their work. The regulation covers all employees for whom it could be reasonably anticipated as the result of performing their job duties to have occupational exposure (skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact) to blood or blood borne pathogens (Hepatitis B or HIV) as the result of performing their job duties. ...
Most bloodborne pathogens are transmitted when blood or body fluid from an infected person enters the body of another person. This can happen through abrasions, needlesticks, human bites, or through mucous membranes.. Not everyone who has been infected with a bloodborne pathogen knows they have been infected. Therefore, it is important to treat all blood and body fluids as if they contain a life threatening illness. If you are faced with a situation that requires you to handle blood or body fluids, reaching out for help is the best way to protect yourself from infection.. Aftermath has handled blood cleanup, communicable disease decontamination, and specialty sanitization for thousands of crime scenes and contaminated buildings.

The totality of the evidence against Henri van Breda did not exclude the possibility of an unknown assailant, defence advocate Pieter Botha argued in the Western Cape High Court.
My mom tells me I was a terrible teether. I was in so much pain, the doctors misdiagnosed me with ear infections more than once. My mother-in-law claims that my husband was the worst teether in a family of three children. If you are good at addition, you can guess what that adds up to - the most miserable, nightmare of an experience cutting teeth. I hear that some moms dont even realize that their kids are teething until they just happen to see one or two. I have to say, when I am told this it makes me want to punch them in the face. I am not a violent person by nature, but one who most likely has been up countless times the night before with an unhappy baby and who has permanent bite marks on her nipples. You can understand where my aggression is stemming from ...

Signs of the abuse she had somehow escaped, riddled her body.

The obvious signs that she had been bred, relentlessly, time after time. The pressure wounds on her elbows that bled whenever they touched anything, from being tied and forced to lay on cement ground and metal cage mesh. ...
Barbie Lawrence, Edgemead. On Wednesday August 25, at about 4.15pm, I was walking home from the shops along Farmersfield Road, in Edgemead. There were three gentlemen having a chat on the corner of Farmersfield Road and Downes Way. One of the men had a dog that was on a lead. As I am rather nervous of dogs, I gave the group a wide berth. However, the dog lunged at me and bit me on my leg. I obviously stopped and knelt down to see if there was a wound. The dog owner said something to the effect that the dog was just excited to which I responded, He bit me.. I was wearing jeans and long socks and saw the bite marks once I rolled down my sock.. Needless to say, I was a bit traumatised, and, not thinking properly, I did not get details such as his name and contact number. I did, however, ask where he lived, and he pointed to a house, and when I asked what number house, he supplied a number.. The following day, I sought advice from the clinic sister at Edgemead Clicks. She advised me to have a ...
Basically, it was no fun, the entire time. I received several bite marks on my arm and a few kicks to the shin. We got home, and thankfully Michael was home. She then spent the next two hours on and off crying. At one point, I grabbed our cheap camera and tried to tape a couple of minutes of the rage for people who wonder. The video is poor, and it is not really focused on her or anything, but you can HEAR it. You may need to turn your volume down. She is very loud. This is a calm rage, she is not being violent, but she is just in a toddler whale mode. She has been doing this a lot lately. It is really hard to take when I think of the fact that she is 11, but I just sit there and try to remind myself that she is more like a 4 or 5 year old. And I pray for patience. And for it to end ...

I watched two young Asian men square up to each other on the street as if they were in a gang meeting. One felt insulted by whatever the other had said and it looked like it could end with someone being badly hurt - this is what goes on all night in the West End on a night like this. Sometimes the atmosphere is great and people are having a good time but sometimes, like tonight, it seems like you are driving through Hell. So, my next call was no surprise - further up the road a 30 year-old man had received a kicking from four men when he got into a fight with one of them. He was punched until his face swelled up like a balloon; he had a nasty bump on his head and his torso was patterned with boot marks where the assailants had stamped on him. The poor guy was terrified after his ordeal, although he had enough energy left to demand that his mate gets them. He said that in front of the cops and that isnt a good idea ...

Rabies is an increasingly rare but potentially very serious, even fatal, condition carried by animal bites. Rabies in the UK is rare, but if the bite is from an animal that may have come into the country without going through normal checks, or if you are bitten overseas, then seek immediate medical attention. There is no cure for rabies but early vaccination following a bite can help develop immunity.. Hepatitis B and C. There is a small chance that hepatitis B and C may be transmitted by a human bite. If concerned, seek medical advice.. Tetanus. Tetanus bacteria carry a particular risk when carried deep into a wound with jagged edges or a puncture wound. Animal bites carry a potential risk of tetanus. Tetanus affects the central nervous system and can cause muscle spasms, breathing problems and sometimes death. It is also known as lockjaw because it may tense up the jaw muscles. There is a vaccination for tetanus but immunity is not lifelong and anybody suffering a potentially hazardous injury ...

DRAWING BY DEBORAH DERR McCLINTOCK. Q. Doggone it, does a dog or human have the stronger bite? -D.J. Bickers. A. Bite forces have been actively studied in a number of species, living and extinct, says Jerry D. Harris, director of paleontology of Dixie State College. Going by the data, an American alligator bites with a force of about 19000 Newtons (4300 pounds), a hyena about 9000, a lion 4200, a dusky shark 3000, and a Labrador retriever 1100 (250 pounds). Would you believe a person actually checks out higher than the retriever at 1500 Newtons (340 pounds)!. But these force values are for the entire mouth, based on jaw and teeth shape. So while a human beats out the Lab, says Harris, the dog has much pointier teeth distributed in a narrower mouth, making for a more concentrated chomp at the teeth tips. Thus, Duke can do far more damage, though human bites can be plenty nasty.. Q. Okay now, baseball slugger... Your girlfriends coming to see you in action at the stadium, and youd really like to ...
4. E corrodens takes its name from its ability to corrode (or pit) the agar during growth. It is a gram-negative pleomorphic, often coccobacillary, rod that exudes a chlorine bleach odor. It is facultatively anaerobic. It is part of the oral flora and many other mucosal surfaces. E corrodens is usually isolated with other organisms, especially strains of streptococci. This organism is a well-recognized cause of cellulitis resulting from human bites and clenched-fist injuries. It has also been found to be a common cause of soft-tissue infections and endocarditis in drug users. This association may arise from the habit of intravenous drug abusers to lick their needles for good luck. These infections are often complicated by osteomyelitis of the underlying bones. It may produce various pulmonary infections (eg, empyema, pneumonia, septic emboli) that mimic those caused by strict anaerobes. Most patients with E corrodens endocarditis have underlying valve lesions. Compared to cases of IE caused by ...
The demographics of hand injuries and disorders depend on the specific injury or disorder in question. Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) of the hands are often related to occupation; for example, nurse anesthetists, dental hygienists, keyboard instrumentalists, word processors, violinists, and some assembly line workers are at relatively high risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome or tendinitis of the fingers related to their work. Nearly 17% of all disabling work injuries in the United States involve the fingers, most often when the finger strikes or is jammed against a hard surface. Over 25% of athletic injuries involve the hand or wrist. In terms of age groups, children under the age of six are the most likely to be affected by crushing or burning injuries of the hand. Closed-fist injuries, which frequently involve infection of the hand resulting from a human bite, are almost entirely found in males between the ages of 15 and 35. Pain or loss of function in the hands resulting from ...

Domestic animals, like dogs and cats, are responsible for most animal bites. While dogs cause more bite injuries, cat bites are more likely to become infected. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, infection occurs in about 10 to 15 percent of dog bites and up to 50 percent of cat bites.. One reason that animal bites often lead to infection is that bites often occur on the fingers or hands. These areas are where the body may have a harder time fighting infection. Also, the bacteria often come from the animals mouth or may be present on the humans skin. The infections are often caused by these bacteria penetrating the skin. As the bacteria multiply, the bodys immune response causes common symptoms of infection. Swelling and inflammation are two examples. Animal bite infections are serious and can even be life-threatening if left untreated.. Animal bites that dont break the skin are not at risk for infection. Scrapes or scratches that just graze the skins surface have a minimal ...
An animal bite is a wound, usually a puncture or laceration, caused by the teeth. An animal bite usually results in a break in the skin but also includes contusions from the excessive pressure on body tissue from the bite. The contusions can occur without a break in the skin. Bites can be provoked or unprovoked. Other bite attacks may be apparently unprovoked. Biting is a physical action not only describing an attack but it is a normal response in an animal as it eats, carries objects, softens and prepares food for its young, removes ectoparasites from its body surface, removes plant seeds attached to its fur or hair, scratching itself, and grooming other animals. Animal bites often result in serious infections and mortality. Animal bites not only include injuries from the teeth of reptiles, mammals, but fish, and amphibians. Arthropods can also bite and leave injuries. Bite wounds can cause a number of signs and symptoms Generalized tissue damage due to tearing and scratching Serious hemorrhage ...

First, foremost and MOST importantly: in most states reporting a bite is law. It may be law for both dogs and cats, but youll have to check with your local health department. Dog is used throughout this post, but you can substitute cat and all the info is the same. A bite is defined by contact by teeth that breaks the skin. if you are bitten by an unknown dog, a dog with an unverified vaccination record, a dog who has bitten before, a dog that is aggressive or if you are bitten while on the job, REPORT THE BITE. If you are bitten by a dog owned by a rescue (that you are fostering, etc) tell the rescue and follow their instructions. PERSONALLY, and this is JUST MY OPINION, a bite under known circumstances by an known dog, due to accident, play, handler error or training does not necessarily need to be reported. BE AWARE that not reporting a bite for any reason may be intentionally breaking of a law ...
