I want to share with you this article that describes well MAINTENANCE FUNCTION IN THE COMPANY, in these times of virus AH1N1 MAINTENANCE Tonsils and Tonsillitis For many years I have suffered from the tonsils and fewer years than those I have suffered the hard but rewarding work of maintenance. After much going round in my head, I have concluded that the maintenance and tonsils have some similarity, which I wanted to share with you in this short letter. The role of the tonsils has always been controversial, since state that are useless until its role in immune defense activity. Located on the back of the throat, one on the right side and one on the left. These masses of tissue hanging part of the system to combat infections in the body, which aims to prevent some diseases. The role of the tonsils is to filter the germs before they cause infections in the throat, mouth or sinuses. They usually play correctly its function. But when bacteria or viruses are installed on the tonsils and infect them, develops the call tonsillitis. This condition now generates discomfort which can be summarized in sore throat, pain to eat, drink, fever, malaise general and can even take to bed for several days. Tonsillitis can be caused by both viruses and bacteria. Among the viruses that can cause sore throat are adenoviruses, rhinovirus, coronavirus, enterovirus, parainfluenza virus, influenza virus, Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus (the latter two involved in infectious mononucleosis), measles virus, the rubella, mumps, and so on.Of the stresses caused by bacteria characteristically Streptococcus pyogenes pharyngitis. Other bacteria that can cause this table are the streptococci of groups C and G, anaerobic bacteria of the oral cavity, Arcanobacterium haemolyticum, Corynebacterium diphtheriae (responsible of diphtheria), Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It is important that the doctor diagnose or rule out whether a sore throat throat, which is an infection caused by bacteria. Well if this type of infection will require special treatment. If tonsillitis is caused by bacteria, your doctor will prescribe antibiotics, a type of medicine that kills bacteria. To kill the bacteria completely, it is very important to take antibiotics exactly to the hour and the doctor tells you to finish the full course of treatment. If tonsillitis is caused by a virus, antibiotics will not take effect, but the body will fight alone against infection. Some people have to be removed (excised) tonsils when they were infected repeatedly over the course of a year or when they will both inflame breathing difficult at night. Symptoms of tonsil infections, either by viruses or bacteria include: Bad breath Voice strange or nasal more red tonsils of normal Lymph nodes in the neck Layer of yellow or white discharge coating the tonsils Complications of tonsillitis can be distinguished: Acute rheumatic fever, pericarditis, endocarditis, myocarditis acute glomerulonephritis and focal nephritis. Difficulty swallowing and throat pain with earache growing and difficulty opening the mouth. High fever (39 – 40 C) and quickly a pattern of serious illness. The treatment in most cases is surgical. To wonder that after so much enfermitis, where is the maintenance As it turns out The maintenance function has been discussed many times since to say that only an expense until his starring role as an activity that adds value. He has been placed on maintaining the business structures from a management to a functional area, but occupationally always ahead of the company to “fight” the flaws and thus prevent or minimize large losses.
