Disease Awareness And Infection Control


In Chapter One of our textbook in Dr. Johnson’s class,  I learned about disease awareness and infection control.This chapter also talks about Pathology and how it is the study of the biological and physical manifestation of disease. Disease occurs when there is some kind of disruption in the Homeostasis of the body. Diseases have specific signs and symptoms. There are a few types of diseases called autoimmune, cancer, deficiency, degenerative, genetic, infectious, and metabolic. There are also two important categories of disorders Congenital and Traumatic. You also can have a less of a chance to get a disease or infection if you follow the Sanitary Procedures like Laundering the massage linens after each use, cleaning and disinfecting massage equipment and supplies used for the client, and following a hand washing procedure.
