Important Flesh Eating Bug Increases in The U.S.-PHOTOS & UPDATES

CASE 1

Let's do this': Girl with flesh eating bacteria sheds no tears as she agrees to amputation of fingers and her remaining foot


  • Aimee Copeland, 24, looked at her hands without any tears, says father
  • Graduate infected with killer bug through deep cut in zip line accident
  • Doctors removed most of her left leg to save her life, but is still critical
By Daily Mail UK 18 May 2012




'Let's do this': Aimee Copeland did not cry when her father told her she would have to have her remaining foot and fingers amputated

A young Georgia woman fighting a flesh-eating bacteria has learned she will lose her hands and remaining foot, and responded by saying 'Let's do this'.

Aimee Copeland's father recounted the conversation in an update on his Facebook page today.
Andy Copeland wrote about the difficult talk he had a day earlier with his daughter after the 24-year-old woman contracted the bacteria after an accident.

He said she 'shed no tears, she never batted an eyelash. I was crying because I am a proud father of an incredibly courageous young lady', Andy Copeland wrote.

It was not immediately clear whether the surgeries had already happened.

Copeland suffered a deep gash in her leg after falling from a homemade zip line on May 1 over a Georgia river, and the bacteria took hold in the wound.

Copeland said he was finally able to tell his daughter on Thursday what had happened since that outing, and how she's been the focus of an outpouring of love from around the world.

'We told her that the world loved and admired her,' he wrote in Friday's update. 'We explained that she had become a symbol of hope, love and faith.'

He recalled how Aimee's eyes widened, her jaw dropped. Then, Copeland took his daughter's hands and held them up to her face.

'She didn't draw back in horror. She knew the condition she was in,' he wrote.

He explained that doctors believed her hands were hampering her progress, and they must be removed. Aimee nodded, her father said.

'She smiled and raised her hands up, carefully examining them,' her father wrote.

'She then looked at us. We all understood her next three words - "Let's do this".'

Doctors hoped they would be able to save her remaining foot after two days of treatment using a hyperbaric chamber, in which patients breathe pure oxygen to boost white blood cells and accelerate healing.

But they learned today that they would have to amputate that and her fingers.

The flesh-eating bacteria, Aeromonas hydrophila, emit toxins that cut off blood flow to parts of the body. The affliction can destroy muscle, fat and skin tissue.
Only a week ago, doctors gave her little chance of survival. But in recent days she has been alert and bored enough to have asked for a book to read.



Distraught: Paige Copeland, center, cries as her parents Donna and Andy Copeland speak about their daughter Aimee after she had her leg amputated

Doctors had to amputate most of Miss Copeland's left leg to save her life.
She has been unable to speak because of her breathing tube in he throat, but her parents said they've learned to read lips and are now able to communicate with their daughter, who was also asking for ice-cream.

'This doctor can't fathom a reason for why she's improved the way she has,' Mr Copeland said earlier this week.
'Her spirits are extraordinarily high. I am absolutely amazed.'


Cherished: Miss Copeland, a 24-year-old graduate from Georgia, has fun with friends

He said his daughter seems aware that she's in the hospital after an accident. But for now, they're sparing her the details of her condition until after she has been removed from a respirator and is breathing on her own.
He said the family also wanted to make sure a hospital counselor was available to help Copeland once she is informed of her condition.

Losing a limb is extremely difficult emotionally, and can be particularly difficult for young people, said Dr. Nadine Kaslow, chief psychologist at Grady Hospital in Atlanta.
'There is a process that they go through, a grief process,' said Kaslow, who is not involved in Miss Copeland's care.

'There is shock, disbelief, anger, sadness and then a period of reconciling one to the situation and healing and figuring out how they are going to move forward in their life.'


Prayers: Aimee Copeland's father has said the progress she has made after contracting the aggressive virus was a 'miracle'

Doctors at the local emergency room in Carrollton closed the wound she suffered in the zip line accident with nearly two dozen staples, but it became infected within days.

On May 4, she was diagnosed with the rare infection and flown 200 miles to Augusta for treatment by specialists at Doctors Hospital.
Copeland's father said she faces a long recovery not just from her amputation but also from kidney failure and other organ damage caused by the infection.
'She's going to be here for months,' he said. 'She's going to need to regrow skin that was removed. She's going to need to learn to use prosthetics. She's going to still be on dialysis for a while.'


Much-loved: Aimee's friends and family are praying for her survival and eventual recovery (from left - Aimee, mother Donna, father Andy and sister Paige)

Some news reports have said Miss Copeland was recently diagnosed with lupus, a chronic disease that compromises the immune system, but her father said that was not true.
Andy Copeland said his daughter had sought treatment for a skin rash. Doctors initially feared it might be a symptom of lupus, but tests revealed Copeland had a food allergy.
'She was a vegetarian and she had a soy-based diet,' Copeland's father said. 'And it turned out she was allergic to soy.'
More than 50 people lined up in the first hour for a blood drive earlier this week at the gymnasium at the University of West Georgia, where Copeland attends school 200 miles from the Augusta hospital. Some students walked to the blood drive, while others drove from other parts of the state.
Kara Dermo, a chemistry student who worked with Copeland at the Sunnyside Cafe, was one of the first in line. She was among the friends invited to try the zip line that sent Copeland plunging to the rocky river, but declined.
Dermo said Copeland's illness has been weighing on the minds of people on campus. Even the slightest amount of good news has been enough to raise the hopes of fellow students.
'It's very close to home. It makes you realize anything could happen at any time,' Miss Dermo said.




Fun loving: Aimee's father, Andy, says describes her as 'outdoorsy' and a 'lover of people'

NECROTIZING FASCIITIS: WHAT CAUSES IT, AND WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?

Necrotizing fasciitis, more commonly known as 'flesh-eating disease', is a rare but extremely vicious bacterial infection.

'Necrotizing' refers to something that causes body tissue to die, and the infection can destroy skin, muscles and fat.

The disease develops when the bacteria enters the body, often through a minor cut or scrape. As the bacteria multiply, they release toxins that kill tissue and cut off blood flow to the area.

Because it is so virulent, the bacteria spreads rapidly throughout the body.

Symptoms include small, red lumps or bumps on the skin, rapidly-spreading bruising, sweating, chills, fever and nausea.

Organ failure and shock are also common complications.

Sufferers must be treated immediately to prevent death, and are usually given powerful antibiotics and surgery to remove dead tissue.

Amputation can become necessary if the disease spreads through an arm or leg.

Patients may undergo skin grafts after the infection has cleared up, to help the healing process or for aesthetic reasons.

CASE 2

New mother critical after being infected with flesh-eating bacteria hours after giving birth to twins
  • Lana Kuykendall's infection grew one quarter of an inch in an hour
  • She was home from the maternity ward for just 13 hours before she returned to the hospital
  • Unable to care for her children as she fights for her life in intensive care unit
By Daily Mail, 18 May 2012

A new mother is fighting for her life after she was infected with a flesh-eating bacteria that sent her back to the hospital just 13 hours after she was released following the birth of her twins.

The infection began as a small bruise on Lana Kuykendall's leg, though it began growing rapidly -- about one quarter of an inch an hour.
The mother from Upstate, South Carolina, is now in critical condition at a hospital in Greenville.


Torn away: Lana Kuykendall can't take care of her newborn twins because she is fighting for her life with a tube in her throat

Mrs Kuykendall, 36, is the second woman in the South to contract a rare bacterial infection called necrotizing fasciitis, which can spread rapidly as it kills flesh.
Aimee Copeland, 24, a graduate student at the University of Georgia, has last one leg and the fingers on one of her hand after she was infected when she cut herself after falling from a homemade zip line.

Her family fears she could lose an arm and the foot on her other leg, as well.

Mrs Kuykendall is a trained paramedic, who knew something bad had happened when she spotted the spot on her leg and began experiencing pain that wouldn't go away.

She had been home from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, where she gave birth to Ian and Abigail, for just 16 hours.



Early detection: Mrs Kuykendall quickly recognized something was wrong because she is a paramedic. Her husband, Darren, is a firefighter



Critical condition: Within 90 minutes of arriving at the hospital, doctors rushed Mrs Kuykendall into surgery to removed the infected tissue

Her husband took her to the hospital and within 90 minutes, she was in emergency surgery. Doctors removed the dead, infected flesh on her leg in the hopes that they could stop the bacteria from spreading.
Before she went into surgery, Mrs Kuykendall and her husband Darren watched in horror as the infection visibly spread throughout her leg.

'And the longer she sat there, the bigger that spot got. It was initially the size of a 3-by-5 index card. But it got bigger and bigger,' Mr Kuykendall, a firefighter, told the newspaper.

'It moved a quarter of an inch in half an hour. Then the high-risk OB physician had a suspicion of what it was.'
Mrs Kuykendall is currently in the intensive care unit of Greenville Memorial Hospital, breathing through a tube. And she's missing out on some of the most important early days of her newborns' lives.

'(We're) still in disbelief that here is my friend, who just had these two beautiful babies, and now she is intubated upstairs, and not able to enjoy the bonding experience, and enjoy the babies,' her friend Kayla Moon told MSNBC

CASE 3

Bobby Vaughn, Georgia Landscaper Becomes the Third Victim

21 May, wtsp news



CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (WXIA) -- A Georgia landscaper has become the third person in the Southeast to contract a flesh eating bacterial infection in recent weeks.
Doctors insist there is no link or common cause among the victims, but it is bizarre given how rare the condition is.
From his hospital bed, 33-year-old Bobby Vaughn talked to our sister station WXIA 11Alive over the telephone detailing what he's been through in the last few days.
"I just started feeling very sick," he said. "I was throwing up and had a backache. I just thought it was a little infection."
Vaughn described beginning to swell, especially in his groin area, and deciding to go to the hospital where doctors immediately put him on fluids and antibiotics.
Within hours Vaughn was in surgery where doctors removed damaged tissue. He has since endured five surgeries and has lost approximately two pounds of tissue.
"I still have some skin grafts and reconstructive surgeries ahead, but they think the bacteria isn't spreading anymore," he said.
It was only after Vaughn was moved to Doctors Hospital in Augusta that he learned about Aimee Copeland in a room just down the hall.
The 24-year-old West Georgia grad is fighting the same sort of infection. She contracted it after falling from a homemade zipline into the Little Tallapoosa River, east of metro Atlanta. Doctors have amputated her leg, her other foot and both her hands.
"From what I understand, her infection moved much faster than mine," Vaughn said. "Still, I was told I was just a day or two from being dead or losing entire parts of my body."
In the meantime, a female paramedic in Greenville, S.C. is also fighting a flesh eating bacterial infection. Lana Kuykendall developed necrotitis faciitis after giving birth to twins in Atlanta.
Kuykendall's brother, Brian Swaffer, spoke to the media Sunday afternoon, saying that while she is still in critical condition, she is stabilized.
"She has a very long road ahead of her," Swaffer said. "She has undergone seven surgeries. We are thankful that the infection has been contained to just her legs and has not spread anywhere else."
Vaughn said learning about what both Kuykendall and Copeland are facing makes what he's going through pale in comparison.
"They are alive," Vaughn said. "I am alive. That is what I am grateful for. That is all I can ask for."

Default Re: Flesh Eating Bug Increases in The U.S.-PHOTOS & UPDATES

You've hit a touchy subject with me, without really knowing it.

The subject is but isn't about the virus that eats flesh.

First off, in the US, we are near third world country conditions in what our medical care can do and does. Because of the cost of medical treatment in the US, the US is the very most expensive health care nation in the world. Yet for the cost which amounts to nearly double the next expensive health care country (Switzerland) we are not getting what we pay for.

The overall measures used to average out differences between countries medical effectiveness usually uses life expectancy and infant mortality rate as a yard stick to measure how good a medical treatment is provided by a country. In the year 2000, the WHO made a measure of this effectiveness and the US came in world ranked at 37ᵗʰ. In the following years this has not become better.

In a very recent news article in the last few days that came out, I have not been able to relocate, the US was rated 50ᵗʰ in the world, putting it on par with third world countries. In otherwords, we are going backwards, with ever more expensive treatment while getting less and less for the money.

Now we get into where this ties back to the virus.

US hospitals have become a hot bed for superbugs. The constant clean up with anti-bacterial scrubs without killing all the bugs, have left these places as sources for the very worst infections. Along with a staph bug that seems to catch the majority in the hospital is also this virus flesh eating bug. It first showed up in a hospital. If you want to get sick, go to a hospital. What you may have had to get you there may not have been deadly but what you catch there is likely to have no cure or a very expensive one the hospital will not own up to being the host of.

Notice that one of the victims was in the water. This is likely that bug came from cow/chicken/livestock farm run off that is poisoning our water supplies. There are many rivers and streams today that it is not a good idea to swim in and many of those same carry EPA warnings not to do so. All streams and rivers eventually show up in the ocean. Meaning that these same bacteria and infections will go into the ocean. Now the good news in that is that most bacteria need some sort of even temperature to survive and don't do too well in salt water. The bad in this is that these bugs mutate. (think the Andromeda Strain) It's the reason that these bugs have developed immunity to antiseptics and antibiotics. Both over use and under use tend to make new bugs immune. Overuse kills them dead for quite a while but sooner or later one makes it out alive and develops immunity. Under use exposes the bugs to what kills them but leaves many alive in weakened state where eventually they too develop immunity.

On the whole as things go, the medical community is coming up short.

I live in a third world country and the service, hospitals doctors and equipment they have here by far exceeds the US. Many Americans come here for good cheaper healthcare. We pay the same amount per year, that the Americans pay per month.

Our insurance covers meds, dental and the choice of menu of food, whilst in hospital,,, (better than a 5 * hotel)
