Whooping Cough & Bodetella pertussis Exposed in New Online Video

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

April 1, 2012 - PRLog -- 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 pertussis (whooping cough) and Bordetella pertussis.

Pertussis is a respiratory illness and is a very contagious disease caused by a type of bacteria known as Bordetella pertussis.   There do not appear to be any zoonotic reservoirs for it and humans appear to be the only hosts.

Whooping cough is spread by airborne droplets.  When people inhale the bacteria it attaches to the cilia that line part of the upper respiratory system. The bacteria release toxins, which damage the cilia and cause inflammation.

“People with pertussis usually spread the disease by coughing or sneezing while in close contact with others,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “Symptoms of pertussis usually develop within 7–10 days after being exposed, but sometimes not for as long as 6 weeks. We hope this video helps to educate people about ways to protect their family’s health from this contagious microbial pathogen.”
