Shingles - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Shingles is a painful skin condition in adults caused by the chicken pox virus also known as the varicella-zoster virus. If you had chickenpox as a child, you still have the varicella-zoster virus inside some of your nerves but not in active form. For unknown reasons, the varicella-zoster virus may become active again in older people or those with weakened immune systems. The reactivated virus travels along your nerves to your skin causing symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and pain. A red blistery rash quickly follows these symptoms. Shingles normally happens in a single patch on one side of your body. It may also happen on one of your shoulders, on the side of your neck or head. Within three to five days, bumps in the rash fill with fluid and become blisters that look like chicken pox. Next, the blisters fill with puss which forces them to break open and begin to scab over. When the scabs fall off and the blisters heal, the pain usually goes away. These symptoms usually last one to two months. You may experience a complication of shingles called postherpetic neruralgia, or PHN, which is pain even after your rash has cleared up. Other complications of shingles include vision loss, if shingles occurs around your eye, pneumonia, hearing problems, brain inflammation, neurologic problems, and skin infections. Both the chicken pox vaccine and the shingles vaccine can dramatically reduce your risk for getting shingles and postherpetic neuralgia. Although there is no cure for shingles, anti-viral drugs, such as acyclovir, can speed healing and reduce the severity of the rash when taken within three days after the rash appears. To reduce pain, your doctor may recommend over the counter pain medication, calamine lotion, cool compresses, and an oatmeal bath. For severe postherpetic neuralgia, your doctor may prescribe medications such as gabapentin.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"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."
