Viral Meningitis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Viral meningitis is an infection occurring mostly in children under age five. It happens when certain viruses invade the meninges, which are the tissues that cover and protect the brain and spinal cord. The meninges are arranged in three layers. The layer that actually touches the brain and spinal cord is called the pia mater. The spider web-like middle layer is called the arachnoid mater. The outermost and toughest layer is called the dura mater. Cerebrospinal fluid, which also protects the brain and spinal cord, flows between the meninges and over the surface of the brain. The most common cause of viral meningitis is a type of virus called enterovirus. Other viruses that can cause meningitis include the mumps virus, the measles virus, herpes viruses, and a variety of viruses spread by blood-feeding insects, such as mosquitoes and ticks. Viruses that cause meningitis may be spread through the bite of an infected insect. However, the two most common ways the virus is spread are through fecal contamination, which can happen when hands are not washed after using the toilet or changing a diaper, and through contact with the body fluids from an infected person, such as through sneezing or coughing. Once inside the body, the viruses make copies of themselves and enter the bloodstream. Viruses travel through the bloodstream to the brain, where they cross the border between the blood stream and the brain into the cerebrospinal fluid. The viruses spread throughout the cerebrospinal fluid and infect the cells of the meninges. The meninges become inflamed as the immune system begins to fight off the infection. Symptoms of viral meningitis in infants and young children include fever, irritability, loss of appetite, and trouble waking up. Symptoms in older children and adults include fever, headache, stiff neck, sensitivity to light, sleepiness, trouble waking up, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. The symptoms of viral meningitis are similar to those of bacterial meningitis but are usually less severe. Doctors may recommend acetaminophen or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for fever and headache. For meningitis caused by a type of herpes virus, doctors may prescribe an anti-viral medication, such as acyclovir. There is no treatment for most viruses that cause meningitis, though most people recover on their own within two weeks.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the trial."

"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the medical exhibits and the timely manner in which they were provided. I will certainly recommend your company to my business associates who could benefit from your services. Please tell Brian Wilson [Director of Content Development, Senior Medical Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."
