    Viral Infections of the Respiratory Tract. Many viruses are capable of entering and causing disease in the respiratory system, and a number are able to spread beyond the respiratory system to cause systemic infections. Most of these infections are highly contagious and, with a few exceptions, antimicrobial drugs are not effective for treatment. "Human Potentialities" carries us to the threshold of a number of possibilities which mankind can ill afford to ignore CHARLES WINICK for too long. PREVENTIVE MEDICINE IN WORLD WAR II. VOL. IV. COMMUNICABLE DISEASES TRANSMITTED CHIEFLY THROUGH RESPIRATORY AND ALIMENTARY TRACTS -Office of the Surgeon General, Department of the Army.

    In Veterinary Medicine (Eleventh Edition), Care of the Newborn Calf. The fecal–oral route is widely accepted as the major route of transmission for MAP. Because of the increased permeability of the intestines in the first hours after birth, the first hours and days of life are deemed to bear the highest risk of infection for a calf. Keypoints The emergent viral respiratory infectious diseases can spread throughout the world because people can be exposed in one place and be half a world away a day later when they become symptomatic. The estimated monthly incidence of acute febrile respiratory tract infections is / travelers Lower tract respiratory infections account for 50% of all RTI in travelers.

    HELP CONTROL COMMUNICABLE DISEASES Vaccines are now available to control the majority of diseases that have caused illness and death in children in the past. Medical treatments help to control many others, but schools and child care centers must continue to play an important role in controlling the spread of communicable disease.

: John Boyd Coates. Respiratory tract infections may range from asymptomatic to acute live threating disease thereby posing a major health threat to young children, elderly, and immunocompromised people.

Respiratory viruses spread via three different transmission routes: contact (direct or indirect), droplet and aerosol transmission (Table 1) [ 2, 3 ].

Small respiratory particles contain fewer infectious viral particles (virions) but are more likely than large particles to be inhaled and reach the lower respiratory tract. Large particles are more likely to settle in the upper respiratory tract and tend to produce milder disease.

These germs usually spread from person to person when uninfected persons are in close contact with a sick person. Infectious Diseases of the Respiratory System. Diseases are at their most dangerous, when they are contagious. A single germ from one infected individual can infect an entire community or city, within a short period of time.
