VII. Listen to the text "Acute Bacterial Endocarditis".

Acute bacterial endocarditis is one of the forms of the impairment of endocar­dium.

The disease develops as a complication of some primary focus of infection. The causative agents of the disease may be streptococci, staphylococci, meningococci and other organisms. If the primary focus of infection has external LABORATORY WORK NO localization it is readily diagnosed. However, there are cases with deeply localized internal primary focus of infection, which present much difficulty for the diagnosis.

From the local focus of infection pathogenic organisms enter the general blood flow and form secondary foci of infection. Such foci may develop in the endocar­dium affecting the aortic, mitral and sometimes tricuspid valves.

In some cases acute bacterial endocarditis is accompanied by purulent pericardi­tis and pleurisy.

VIII. 1. What may the causative agents of acute bacterial endocarditis be? 2. What primary foci of infection may this disease have? 3. What heart valves are usually affected in acute LABORATORY WORK NO bacterial endocarditis? 4. What is acute bacterial en­docarditis sometimes accompanied by?

VI. Listen to the text "Hypertrophy and Dilatation of the Heart".

The heart is a pump. Its function is to pump the blood through the general andpulmonary circulation. The power required for this purpose varies greatly, depend i nc on the position, exercise and resistance to blood flow.

153To meet these varying requirements the heart has a wide reserve power. If the load on the heart is permanently increased the reserve is diminished or the heart undergoes hypertrophy to meet the increased requirements.

If, because of LABORATORY WORK NO poor nutrition, infection or overstrain, hypertrophy fails, or the reserve is eliminated, the heart dilates, and heart failure or cardiac insufficiency de­velops.

Hypertrophy of the heart muscle is almost always accompanied by increase in the size of the heart cavities, but in dilatation, properly speaking, the muscle walls be­come thin and lose their tone and the size of the cavities is disproportionally large.

VI. Listen to the text "The Meeting of Russian Rheumatologists".

Russian rheumatologists held their meeting in Sochi to discuss the most urgent problems.

Most reports were devoted to the problem of rheumatic carditis. Academician A. Nesterov, president of the Russian Scientific Society of LABORATORY WORK NO Rheumatologists, spoke about the latent form of rheumatic carditis. This form may be almost asymptomatic or present only with general arthralgia, rapid pulse, and general weakness.

Academician A. Nesterov indicated that there was a strong relation of rheuma­tism to streptococcal disease and, may be, to specific reaction of certain patients to this chronic streptococcal infection.

A. Dolgopolova of the Moscow Institute of Rheumatological Research, Depart­ment of Pediatrics, again emphasized the need to differentiate rheumatic latent carditis from its acute and chronic forms.

N. Lukyanova called attention to the ambulatory forms of rheumatism, amour which a great number of LABORATORY WORK NO patients have latent rheumatic carditis.

U. Danys introduced a suggestion that chronic tonsillitis may produce a fuiu tional disturbance of myocardium. He called it the tonsillo-cardiac syndrome.

VII. 1. At the meeting of rheumatologists of Russian in Sochi most reports wendevoted to the problem of rheumatic carditis. 2. Their reports contained the com mon idea of the latent forms of rheumatic carditis. 3. Academician A. Nes

VII.Listen to the text "High-Pressure Heart Surgery".

Not long ago LABORATORY WORK NO I watched a delicate heart operation. It was performed in a her­metically sealed high-pressure chamber at the Moscow Research Institute for Clini­cal and Experimental Surgery.

The operated man was 48 years old. He had been hardly able to move because he was suffering from a serious congenital valve defect.

Now this operation is considered not a very complex one. But in this patient there was a serious risk of blood clotting in the brain.

This risk became quite insignificant when the operation was performed in the high-pressure chamber. At normal air pressure the amount LABORATORY WORK NO of oxygen in a patient's blood remains unchanged even if he breathes in pure oxygen. In a pressure chamber the oxygen amount in the blood increases considerably. The oxygen prevents danger­ous after-effects in many parts of the body, including the brain cells, which are par­ticularly delicate. In a pressure chamber the surgeon is able to operate with greater freedom on vital organs such as the brain, heart or blood vessels.

But it is very hard to work under high pressure. When operations are performed at seven or eight atmosphere pressures, the operation can only last two and LABORATORY WORK NO a half hours. The personnel in the chamber have to be changed.

IV. 1. It is known that nausea develops in some stomach diseases.

2. It is considered that this patient has perforating ulcer of the duodenum.

3. It is believed that LABORATORY WORK NO intermittent fever accompanies inflammatory processes.

V. Listen to the text.

The cardinal symptoms of ulcer are pain, localized tenderness, hyperacidity of the gastric juice and vomiting of blood. The time at which the pain develops depends largely on the situation of the ulcer. If the ulcer is in the body of the stomach or near the cardiac end, that is, near the opening of the esophagus, pain may develop very shortly after eating and may disappear when the stomach is empty. In this case a sharply localized area of tenderness will be felt in the middle of the epigastrium or slightly LABORATORY WORK NO to the left and there may also be tenderness to the left of the lower spine. If the ulcer is near the pylorus pain will develop later in the course of digestion as the stomach is emptying itself. In ulcer of the duodenum an aching pain develops two, three or more hours after meals and is relieved by food.

VIII. Listen to the text "Indications for Operations in Case of Ulcers"-Perforation of gastric or duodenal ulcer into the free peritoneal c^ity fe

cation for operation.

Surgical intervention is indicated in case of severe bleeding of tne upper gas­trointestinal tract when there are no signs of portal obstruction an(^ wnen the haemorrhage persists after 2.5 litres of blood transfusion.

The primary purpose of the operation is to arrest haemorrhage. But tne opera­tion should also have the purpose of healing the ulcer.

During the operation the stomach must LABORATORY WORK NO be opened widely. The operating sur­geon must make a thorough search for the bleeding point. But ofteritne surgeon is unable to find such a point. In such a case three-fourths of the stomacn must be resected.

If severe haemorrhage reoccurs in the postoperative period a rep^ate^ operation of the stomach should be carried out. In this case all the stomach except a 1 cm mar­gin at the esophagus should be resected.

VI. Listen to the text "Chronic Hepatitis". Acute hepatitis may have a chr»course. Prolonged irritation of the liver by chemical or bacterial toxins results h inflammation of the liver parenchyma, it being accompanied by atrophy of tin cells.

In the initial stage chronic hepatitis may develop without any clearly marked Nyitoms. In certain forms of the disease the main symptom is jaundice, it lastnseveral months or even years.As soon as chronic hepatitis is diagnosed it is necessary to eliminate the cause LABORATORY WORK NO of the condition. If tuberculosis or malaria are responsible for the disease they must be treated first.

Treatment during exacerbations is the same as for acute hepatitis. During remis­sions the general and dietary regimen may be more varied. The diet must be nourish­ing and varied, but alcohol and fat food must be completely excluded.

At this stage treatment with mineral salts at sanatoriums is recommended as min­eral salts have a benign influence on the hepatic parenchyma. The patient must be prescribed such medicines which inhibit fatty infiltration of the liver, lipoeaine being one of them.

Prophylaxis for LABORATORY WORK NO chronic hepatitis consists in early diagnosis, early hospitalization and adequate treatment of patients with acute infectious hepatitis.

Measures must be taken against the influence of various industrial, drug and do­mestic poisoning substances.

Gallstones are formed in the gallbladder and bile ducts. I hi'ii origin is due to disturbances of cholesterol metabolism, that is an increased a mi и i hi с il cholesterol In the blood and bile. Inflammatory processes in the gallbladder.iml bileducts arc alsoresponsible for the development of gallstones.

The stones may remain in the gallbladder for years withoutcausing discomloi i In other cases the stones are responsible for the developmeni l n serious disea*named cholelithiasis, it causing the patient great suffering and sometimes resultln|in a fatal outcome.

The chief symptoms of cholelithiasis are LABORATORY WORK NO attacks of sharp painin the right hypochondrium, they often being accompanied-hyjyomiting, chill, mikI a high temperature. Jaundice may develop in cases when a gallstone occludes a large hepatic or billduct.

During such attacks the patient is usually given a subcutaneous injectioi pantopon, atropine or promedole. The patient must follow complete bed rest, Iи i| water bottles being constantly applied to the liver area to relieve pain.

VI. Listen to the text "Cancer Cells".

The main difference between normal and cancer cells is one of the growth and differentiation: most cancer cells are in their structure more like those of the young organism (fetus) than those of the adult.

They generally grow and divide more rapidly and in a disorganized fashion, but normal cells only divide and grow until they come into contact with adjacent cells and then stop their growth.

Researchers have tried to treat cancers by using drugs which inhibit the division of cells. The most rapidly dividing cancer cells will be affected by these LABORATORY WORK NO drugs before the more slowly growing normal cells.

The major problem in cancer research now is concentrated on trying to find out the more delicate differences between cancer and normal cells.

Researchers study the structure of the cell wall and try to determine why cancer cells do not recognize other cells.

Another branch of research has been to study the internal mechanism of the cell, i. e. to find differences between the nuclei of cancerous and normal cells, because the nucleus is that part of the cell which appears to regulate the growth and differentia­tion of LABORATORY WORK NO all cells.

VI. Listen to the text.

1.1. Mechnikov was born in 1845 in the village of Ivanovka, not far from the city of Kharkov.

Since his early childhood 1.1. Mechnikov had become interested in natural sci­ences. Being a pupil of the sixth form LABORATORY WORK NO he began to attend the course of university lectures delivered by the prominent physiologist of those days, Professor Schelckov.

I. I. Mechnikov graduated from Kharkov University when he was only 19 years old. While studying at the University he published several scientific articles in zool­ogy. In 1870 at the age of 25 I.I. Mechnikov became one of the leading professors of Odessa University. But twelve years later, in 1882 he left the University demonstrat­ing his protest against the tzarist ministry of education. He began hisintense re­search work in his private laboratory. In 18871.1. Mechnikov went abroad and spent almost LABORATORY WORK NO 30 years in Paris as a worker at the Pasteur Institute.

I. I. Mechnikov was the first to observe the phenomenon of phagocytosis in ex­periments with lower animals. Once 1.1. Mechnikov was examining daphnia through the microscope. He observed bacteria in the form of a long stick enter the body of daphnia. At the same moment these bacteria were surrounded by the movable cells of the animal's body and destroyed by them.

I. I. Mechnikov took great interest in this phenomenon and began his regular observations, which enabled him to see clearly that every time the movable cells were not LABORATORY WORK NO able to destroy the invading microbes daphnia became ill and finally perished. On the basis of his observations I.I. Mechnikov proved that white blood cells of the human being had the ability to pass through the walls of the capillary' vessels and to destroy the invading microbes. 1.1. Mechnikov called these cells phagocytes and the phenomenon itself phagocytosis. 1.1. Mechnikov also determined what defence forces the human body had and why not every bacterial infection resulted in a disease.

In 1908 1.1. Mechnikov received the Nobel Prize for his investigations on phago­cytosis.


1.1. Mechnikov performed considerable work on the effect of lactic acid LABORATORY WORK NO on bac­teria and its counteracting intestinal poisons and devoted many years of his life to the problem of aging.

1.1. Mechnikov died in 1916 at the age of 71.

The girl received the treatment with diphtheria antitoxin. 6. In five days the membrane on the tonsils, pharynx, and larynx began to loosen and disintegrate. In ten days the danger of a fatal outcome was completely eliminated.

V. Listen to the LABORATORY WORK NO text "Scarlet Fever".

In scarlet fever the period of invasion lasts only twenty-four hours, it being char­acterized by headaches, vomiting, sore throat, and rapid pulse. In mild cases, when the patient is seen in the later stages of the disease, the diagnosis is often made from

167the character of emption. Examining the patient the physician usually notes the in­flammation ofthe throat which is associated with the enlargement ofthe glands of the neck. The typical symptoms ofthe disease are associated with the common si­multaneous phenomena, loss of appetite, gastrointestinal disturbances, small amount of urine of dark LABORATORY WORK NO colour, and mild delirium being most frequent. In scarlet fever dur­ing the final stage of convalescence the patient may feel almost well, but the most serious complications sometimes occur, kidney impairment being the most charac­teristic.

VI. Listen to the text "The Periods of an Infectious Disease".

In the widest sense an infectious disease is one due to the invasion ofthe human body by specific germs of some sort which infect it. The infectious disease with a relatively short course is called an acute infectious disease, the others are called chronic infectious diseases.

The course of an infectious disease is often LABORATORY WORK NO marked by certain stages or periods, each having a special term.

The period during which the germs are developing in the body without charac­teristic clinical manifestations is called the period of incubation.

It is followed by the prodromal stage during which the initial symptoms may ap­pear. \

Then comes the stage of a fully developed disease or the stage of fastigium which in case of a disease with cutaneous eruption is called the period of eruption.

The last period is the stage of decline, in the eruptive fevers sometimes called the period of desquamation.

VII. What LABORATORY WORK NO four periods of an infectious disease are there? They are: 1. the period of incubation; 2. the prodromal period; 3. the period of a fully developed disease; 4. the period of decline.
