GLOSSARY (summary)


allergy
Skin reaction (itching, pimples, swelling) or general discomfort occurring after contact with a particular substance, use of a medication, or ingestion of food. The main forms of allergy are eczema, urticaria, asthma, angioedema and allergic shock (anaphylactic shock). Food allergy can also result in digestive disorders.


antipyretic
Medication used to lower the body temperature during bouts of fever.


convulsions
Involuntary contractions limited to a few muscles or generalized to the whole body. They are due to excessive pain or stimulation of the brain: fever, poisoning, lack of oxygen, brain damage. Convulsions may be due to an epileptic seizure or high fever in young children.


skin rash
Appearance of pimples or plaques on the skin. These lesions can be due to a food, a drug, and translate an allergy or a toxic effect. Many viruses can also cause pimple eruptions: rubella, roseola and measles are the most common.


germ
A general term that refers to all microscopic organisms likely to cause infection: bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi.


IM
Abbreviation for intramuscular. See this term.


induration
Slight swelling and loss of elasticity of the skin which becomes locally firm and not very mobile. Induration can occur after injection of a drug, an insect bite, an infection or an allergic reaction.


intramuscular
route or injectionInjection of a drug into a muscle, usually at the buttock. The effect of the drug, which only gradually passes into the bloodstream, is delayed but prolonged. A good prior disinfection of the skin is necessary, because this deep injection exposes to a risk of abscess. The pain caused by the bite depends mainly on the nature of the product used. This route of administration is contraindicated in hemophiliacs and in people undergoing anticoagulant therapy because it exposes them to a risk of hematoma of the buttock.
Abbreviation: IM.


meningitis
Inflammation due most often to an infection of the outer envelopes of the brain called meninges. Meningitis may be due to a virus; their evolution is usually favorable. Some bacteria, such as meningococcus, Haemophilus influenzae type b, may be responsible for severe meningitis that may leave sequelae. One should think of meningitis in the case of a permanent headache with nausea, a high fever and an unusual state of prostration in a child: urgent medical examination is then necessary. Fortunately, in most cases, it is a commonplace flu.


infants
Child from one to 30 months. A child under one month is a newborn.


edema
Accumulation of water or lymph causing localized swelling.


otitis
Inflammation or infection of the ear. Otitis externa affects only the ear canal. Acute otitis media and chronic otitis media affect the part of the ear behind the eardrum (middle ear).


allergic reaction
Reaction due to hypersensitivity of the organism to a drug. Allergic reactions can take a wide variety of aspects: urticaria, angioedema, eczema, eruption of pimples resembling measles, etc. Anaphylactic shock is a generalized allergic reaction that causes discomfort due to a sudden drop in blood pressure.


septicemia
Severe general infection due to the invasion of germs in the blood. The first signs are often high fever accompanied by chills.


vaccine
An injectable solution for immunizing the organism against a virus or bacterium.
There are several kinds of vaccines:
  • Live attenuated vaccines: the germ contained in the vaccine is alive but unable to cause the disease (BCG, measles, rubella, mumps, etc.).
  • Vaccines prepared from killed germs: the most immunizing parts of the virus or bacteria are used to prepare the vaccine (polio vaccines, hepatitis vaccines, etc.).
  • Vaccines containing neutralized (inactivated) toxins: in the case of tetanus, it is a toxin secreted by the germ that is responsible for the severity of the disease; the vaccine allows immunization against this toxin.


way
  • Pathway (route of administration) used to administer drugs: oral, sublingual, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intradermal, transdermal.
  • Set of hollow organs allowing the passage of air (respiratory tract), food (digestive tract), urine (urinary tract), bile (bile ducts), etc.
