10,238 Possible Causes for membranes

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    It is postulated that the patches decrease the admittance of low- to mid-frequency acoustic input at the tympanic membrane by increasing the stiffness of the tympanic membrane[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Previous work has demonstrated that temporarily mass loading and stiffening the tympanic membrane significantly reduces these symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Paper patching of the tympanic membrane provided symptomatic relief in 76.2 per cent of patients; relief was permanent in 50 per cent of these patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Otitis Media

    We also compared scores including or excluding tympanic-membrane examination of children with and without AOM.[doi.org] Structural changes in the tympanic membrane such as scars or perforation may also be seen. The mobility of the tympanic membrane is also impaired.[symptoma.com] A defect in the mucous membrane was covered with polyglycolic acid sheet and fibrin glue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Symptoms are caused by inflammation of the mucous membranes in the upper respiratory tract.[mcomarin.com] Pharyngeal and tonsillar diphtheria may manifest as an adherent blue-white or gray-green membrane over the tonsils or soft palate; if bleeding has occurred, the membrane may[emedicine.medscape.com] Furnaces dry out the air, which dries out your mucus membranes and makes you more susceptible to colds and upper-respiratory infections.

Google Scholar Medline ISI 12. .[doi.org] A moist mucus secreting membrane known as mucus membrane lines the sinuses and nostrils. What are the symptoms of sinusitis?[irishhealth.com] The surface of this lining is made up of soft membrane-like tissues which is densely populated with microscopic hair-like cilia.[sinusinfectionhelp.com]

  • Influenza

    membrane fusion.[dx.doi.org] The composition of viral lipids and host cell membranes are similar. The lipids are modified cellular lipids and are derived from plasma membranes.[web.archive.org] A challenge faced by these viruses is the trafficking of viral components into and out of the nucleus through the nuclear membrane.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Acute gastroenteritis, known colloquially as a stomach bug, is an intestinal inflammation following an infection that affects the mucous membranes present in the stomach and[health.ccm.net] Definition (CHV) Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines Definition (CHV) Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines Definition[fpnotebook.com] […] dehydration—which is an emergency—can cause extreme thirst, extreme sleepiness, sunken fontanels, and fussiness in infants; irritability/confusion in adults; and dry mucous membranes[contemporaryclinic.pharmacytimes.com]

  • Insect Bite

    Avoid contact with mucus membranes and eyes. If any essential oils have contacted your eye, wash out with a vegetable oil such as olive oil, not water.[theheartysoul.com] The PAS stain is important to examine the integrity of the basement membrane.[doi.org] The vacuolar change involves the dermo–epidermal junction basement membrane and extends to the hair follicle.[doi.org]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    An air humidifier to keep the air moist will assist in keeping the nose and sinus membranes moist.[emedicinehealth.com] A swab is dipped in the urine and then placed on a nitrocellulose membrane that contains rabbit antibodies against S. pneumoniae.[mja.com.au] […] infection (maternal positive blood culture, histologically proven chorioamnionitis, maternal temperature with a positive culture from a high vaginal swab or rupture of the membranes[thorax.bmj.com]

  • Pharyngitis

    At the day 2 visit, a nurse or medical assistant obtained an interval history, tympanic membrane temperature, and a pediatrician or nurse practitioner examined the oropharynx[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These viruses enter the body through the ciliated epithelium that lines the nose, causing edema and hyperemia of the nasal mucous membranes.[emedicine.medscape.com] A cup of tea or hot chocolate can relieve a sore throat by warming the irritated membranes.[healthcentral.com]
