Circulatory System
The circulatory system is one of the systems of the human body, that helps sustain life and can be effected by bacteremia disease.Circulatory is the system that circulates blood and lymph through the body, consisting other the heart,blood vessels, blood, lymph, and lymphatic vessels and glands.We need circulatory system to survive because Circulatory system is essential to move nutrients and oxygen to cells and to remove waste. Having a transport system allows cells to specialize. If there were no circulation every cell would have to perform many more functions independently.The heart and the lungs are the primary organs of the circulatory system. The lungs are responsible for adding oxygen to blood. This oxygen-rich blood is then pumped to the heart, which then circulates it through the arteries to all the tissues throughout the body. Veins then return the blood for the addition of new oxygen and recirculation.
Bacteremia is the presence of bacteria in the blood.Bacteremia occurs when bacteria enter the bloodstream. This may occur through a wound or infection, or through a surgical procedure or injection.Tachypnoea,Fever,Tachycardia,Hypoxemia,Diaphoresis,and Hypothermia are some of the Most infants and young children who are evaluated for occult bacteremia present with a fever. The use of antipyretics to treat fever is somewhat controversial. However, while the child is evaluated to determine a source of the fever, fever reduction with medication is reasonable and is widely accepted. Studies have shown that ibuprofen or acetaminophen are both effective and well tolerated
