Pathophysiology: Neurological System - Infections
Since the central nervous system is crucial in the maintenance of health within the human body, it is important to understand issues that can arise when infections occur.
This program focuses on infectious processes of the central nervous system, including encephalitis, meningitis, and Guillian Barré, a post-infectious autoimmune disease of the peripheral nervous system.
After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
- Identify the causes and symptoms of encephalitis
- List and describe the risk factors of meningitis
- Differentiate between bacterial and viral meningitis
- Describe the different types, symptoms, and complications of Guillan Barré (GBS)
