Bacilli and spirilla are motile and have slender, hair-like extensions known as flagella or cilia for locomotion. Slide 6 Growth and Reproduction Active Stage-grow and reproduce-warm, dark, damp places-sufficient food available Divide into two new cells mitosis Inactive (spore forming stage)-form spherical spores with tough outer covering for protection-cannot be harmed by disinfectants When conditions are favorable they grow and reproduce. Slide 7 MITOSIS Slide 8 Bacterial Infections When body tissues are invaded by pathogenic bacteria. Local infection- pimple or abscess General infection- carried by bloodstream to all parts of the body. Slide 9 Bacterial Infections Contagious spread Unclean hands, implements or towels, uncovered coughing or sneezing Slide 10 Viruses submicroscopic capable of infesting almost all plants and animals- live by penetrating cells and becoming a part of them. Slide 11 Hepatitis Virus Hepatitis A-3 weeks vaccine available, Hepatitis B long term cirrhosis, vaccine available, Hepatitis C-no vaccine available Slide 12 HIV/AIDS Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome Slide 13 How Pathogens Enter the Body Break in the skin Mouth Nose Eye or ears Unprotected sex Slide 14 Principles of Prevention Decontamination- removal of pathogens from tools and surfaces by physical or chemical means. 3 levels of decontamination Slide 15 Sterilization Highest level of decontamination Completely destroys every organism. Methods include steam autoclave and dry heat Slide 16 Disinfection Controls microorganisms on nonporous surfaces. Does not kill bacterial spores. Slide 17 Disinfectants Disinfectants chemical agents used to destroy most bacteria and viruses. Disinfectants are not for use on human skin, hair or nails.
