Tetanus & Clostridium tetani Exposed in New Online Video

The IAQ Video Network produces another educational video about environmental dangers due to exposure to environmental contaminants and pathogens.

 
PRLog - Mar. 11, 2012 - Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health.  The latest educational video discusses tetanus and Clostridium tetani.

Tetanus is an acute, often fatal, disease caused by an exotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium tetani. It is characterized by generalized rigidity and convulsive spasms of the skeletal muscles. The muscle stiffness usually involves the jaw and neck and then becomes generalized throughout the body.

Clostridium tetani is a slender, gram-positive, anaerobic rod that may develop a terminal spore. The organism is sensitive to heat and cannot survive in the presence of oxygen.  The spores; however, are very resistant to heat and many antiseptics.

“These spores are widely distributed in soil and in the intestines and feces of horses, sheep, cattle, dogs, cats, rats, guinea pigs and chickens,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “Manure-treated soil may contain large numbers of these spores. In agricultural areas, a significant number of human adults may harbor the organism. The spores can also be found on skin surfaces. C. tetani usually enters the body through a wound. We hope this video helps to educate people about ways to protect their health from this deadly microbe.”
