    00:01 Our topic now with infectious. This diarrhea, invasive bacterial diarrhea is my topic.

    00:07 All that I´m gonna do here is just list the organisms and give you a little bit explanation but not a whole lot.

    00:13 This is more micro. Shigella, quite common invasive bacteria.

    00:19 Salmonella, different species of salmonella that may result in types of diarrhea.

    00:26 Vibrio parahemolyticus the diarrhea that might be found with the shellfish.

    00:33 E. coli hemorrhagic, Staph aureus, extremely quick with that type of diarrhea, within 6 hours of consuming of stuff like potato salads may present with diarrhea.

    00:48 Yersinia enterocolitica is the one which at times may simulate your right lower quadrant pain mimicking that of appendicitis. Here we have Campylobacter jejuni, We have vulnificus, we hear this every once in a while down in the gulf and that´s because we have a patient that´s been swimming and the waters have been affected in the gulf and oftentimes these patients have pretty severe diarrhea to the point where they are increasing risk of mortality. That is no joke.

    01:20 We have Aeromonas hydrophilia. The non-invaside side: We gave Staph. aureus, Clostridium perfringens, E. Coli, Vibrio cholera and we have Bacillus cereus.

    01:31 Bacillus cereus could be found with you´ve heard of refried beans and such or rice that´s been reheated but then you´ve also heard of tacos, right? So, carbohydrates and foods that have been reheated in which bacillus will play a role.
