Meningitis viral - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: La meningitis viral es una infección que ocurre principalmente en los niños menores de cinco años. Sucede cuando ciertos virus invaden los meninges que son tejidos que cubren y protegen el cerebro y la médula espinal. Los meninges se disponen en tres capas. La capa que realmente toca el cerebro y la médula espinal se llama piamadre. La capa media tipo tela de araña se llama aracnoides. La capa más dura y exterior se llama duramadre. El líquido cerebroespinal que además protege el cerebro y la médula espinal fluye entre los meninges y sobre la superficie del cerebro. La causa más común de meningitis viral es un tipo de virus llamado enterovirus. Otros virus que causan meningitis pueden incluir el virus de la papera, sarampión, el virus del herpes y una variedad de virus que se esparcen a través de la sangre alimentando insectos tales como mosquitos y garrapatas. Los virus que causan meningitis pueden transmitirse a través de la picadura de un insecto infectado. Sin embargo, los dos modos más comunes de la diseminación del virus es a través de la contaminación fecal que puede suceder cuando las manos no se lavan luego de usar el baño o cuando se cambian los pañales y a través de contacto con los líquidos corporales de una persona infectada, tales como estornudos o tos. Una vez dentro del cuerpo, el virus se reproduce e ingresa en el torrente sanguíneo. Los virus viajan por el torrente sanguíneo hasta el cerebro donde cruzan el límite entre el torrente sanguíneo y el cerebro hasta el líquido cerebroespinal. Los virus se diseminan por todo el líquido cerebroespinal e infectan las células de los meninges. Los meninges se inflaman cuando el sistema inmune comienza a pelear contra la infección. Los síntomas de la meningitis viral en los bebés y en los niños pequeños incluyen: fiebre, irritabilidad, pérdida del apetito y problemas para despertarse. Los síntomas en adultos y niños más grandes incluyen: fiebre, dolor de cabeza, tortícolis, sensibilidad a la luz, somnolencia, problemas para despertarse, náuseas, vómitos y pérdida del apetito. Los síntomas de la meningitis viral, son similares a los de la meningitis bacterial, pero son generalmente menos graves. Los médicos pueden recomendar acetaminofén u otro medicamento antinflamatorio no esteroideo para la fiebre y el dolor de cabeza. Para la meningitis causada por un tipo de virus del herpes, los médicos pueden recetar un medicamento antiviral tal con Aciclovir. No hay tratamiento para la mayoría de los virus que causan la meningitis, sin embargo, la mayoría de las personas se recuperan en un lapso de dos semanas.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
