Lymphatic and Immune pathologies Chapter 9


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, 2nd edition, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

The Lymphatic and Immune Pathologies chapter had a lot of pathologies I wanted to learn about. Lymphedema and edema to name a few that were from the Lymphatic system, then there were allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lupus, AIDS etc. coming from the Immune system. Figure 9-1 on Page 261 was good to read up on, it was about what to do in case of an anaphylaxis reaction. It gave you the symptoms, wheezing, weak pulse, confusion to name a few. Then it gave you the “what to do” info. Call 911, calm and reassure the person, check to see if they carry an EpiPen, if so maybe you will need to administer it. Etc. The chapter also had a good explanation on AIDS and HIV. What the difference of the two are. First you get HIV then AIDS may follow then death. There is no cure for AIDS.
