Reproductive Epidemiology

Epidemiology studies the sexual disease and disorders caused in men and women in a certain population. These study results can be used to analyse the cause of a medical condition and how it can be prevented, prevalence in a population and the urgency with which it needs to be addressed.

Reproductive Epidemiology investigates the distribution and determinants of reproductive diseases in human populations. Epidemiologic skills can be used to better understand the cause of a medical condition and how it can be prevented, or its prevalence in a population and the urgency with which it needs to be addressed.

Reproductive topics include pubertal development, gynecologic disorders, female reproductive cancers, sexually transmitted infections, menstruation, menopause, female and male fertility, and assisted reproductive technologies.

Nutrition Epidemiology

Nutrition epidemiology is a branch that is specialized in research to examine the role of nutrition played in the cause of diseases. To monitor the nutrition status in a population and to develop new interventions to reach the healthy eating patterns in the population.

The effects of dietary intake and nutritional status on health are complex. Multiple nutrients work together in the body, with differing impacts on different systems and under differing environmental conditions. The effects of dietary intake may be modified or confounded by other exposures, including physical activity, smoking, and alcohol consumption.

Understanding and untangling specific effects requires an understanding of the complex interactions among exposures and the technical skills for clarifying them in population-based data. Epidemiologic studies may generate important new ideas about health risks or protective factors, and offer suggestions for public health policy.

Emerging Infection

Emerging infection is the infectious disease that has increased rapidly compared to the past condition and tends to increase in the future. Emerging infectious diseases range 12% of all the total deadly pathogens which can cause fatal effects.

Emerging infections are caused by newly identified species or strains of bacteria, virus, pathogens or any microbial organism that may have evolved from a known infection or spread to a new population or area undergoing ecologic transformation.

Drug resistant diseases, Nosocomial infections are emerging in hospitals, and extremely problematic. Emerging infections are of growing concern. Adverse synergistic interactions between emerging diseases and other infectious and non-infectious conditions leads to the development of novel syndemics.

Environmental Epidemiology

Environmental epidemiology is a branch of epidemiology concerned with the discovery of the role played by environment towards protections from injuries, illnesses, growth disorders, disabilities, and death. Environmental epidemiology studies external factors that affect the incidence, prevalence, and geographic range of health conditions.

Environmental epidemiology identifies and quantifies exposures to environmental contaminants; conducts risk assessments and risk communication; provides surveillance for adverse health effects; and provides health-based guidance on levels of exposure to such contaminants.

Environmental epidemiology seeks to understand how physical, chemical, biologic, as well as, social and economic factors affect human health. Social factors, that is where one lives, works, socializes or buys food, often influence exposure to environmental factors.

Environmental epidemiology research can inform risk assessments; development of standards and other risk management activities; and estimates of the co-benefits and co-harms of policies designed to reduce global environment change, including policies implemented in other sectors (e.g. food and water) that can affect human health.

Trends in Maternal Mortality

Death of women caused by pregnancy or its related medication or due to termination of pregnancy or duration or site of pregnancy is known to be maternal mortality.

Trends in maternal mortality includes various conditions which can lead to maternal mortality. There are significant maternal mortality intracountry variations, especially in nations with large equality gaps in income and education and high healthcare disparities.

Women living in rural areas experience higher maternal mortality than women living in urban and suburban centers because those living in wealthier households, having higher education, or living in urban areas, have higher use of healthcare services than their poorer, less-educated, or rural counterparts. There are also racial and ethnic disparities in maternal health outcomes which increases maternal mortality in marginalized groups.

Primary Care Epidemiology

Primarycare epidemiology can contribute to wider improvements in health and healthcare services, through better understanding of disease aetiology, use of healthcare services and the role of different healthcare interventions.

Typically this provider acts as the first contact and principal point of continuing care for patients within a health care system, and coordinates other specialist care that the patient may need. Patients commonly receive primary care from professionals such as a primary care physician, a nurse practitioner, or a physician assistant. In some localities such a professional may be a registered nurse, a pharmacist, a clinical officer, or a Ayurvedic or other traditional medicine professional.

Intestinal Epidemiology

Intestinal epidemiology deals with the proper intestines, intestinal diseases, intestinal disorders, and various health issues people face. Understanding these disease conditions in a population can make it possible to invent remedies and prevention strategies.

In human anatomy, the intestine is the segment of the alimentary canal extending from the mouth via stomach to the anus. In humans and other mammals, consists of two segments, the small intestine and the large intestine. In humans, the small intestine is further subdivided into the duodenum, jejunum and ileum while the large intestine is subdivided into the caecum and colon.

Intestinal epidemiolgy studies help to analyse and understand intestinal diseases involving the gastrointestinal tract, namely the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and rectum, and the accessory organs of digestions, the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.

Renal Epidemiology

Epidemiology of renal system includes disease conditions of kidneys such as kidney stones, nephritis, chronic and acute kidney diseases, gallbladder stones, urinary tract infections and all the other disease conditions. By studying and understanding renal epidemiology the proper prevention measures can be taken.

According to survey conducted chronic kidney disease resulted in 956,000 deaths in 2013 up from 409,000 deaths in 1990.In many patients, previous renal disease or other underlying diseases are already known. A significant number present with chronic kidney disease of unknown cause. In these patients, a cause is occasionally identified retrospectively.

Etiology

Etiology is the study of cause or origin. In epidemiology etiology plays a vital role to understand the origin and cause of the disease. By studying the etiological conditions of infectious diseases, communicable and non-communicable diseases its cure and prevention can be intervened.

Etiology refers to the many factors coming together to cause an illness. It is normally the focus of epidemiological studies.

Epidemiology and Biostatistics

Epidemiology and biostatistics are the two branches of science that deals with the study of etiological  conditions of a particular disease or health condition and present statistics of the condition in a given population or given community.

Epidemiology is the science that studies the patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations. It is the cornerstone of public health, and shapes policy decisions and evidence-based practice by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive healthcare.

Epidemiologists rely on other scientific disciplines like biology to better understand disease processes, statistics to make efficient use of the data and draw appropriate conclusions, social sciences to understand proximate and distal causes better, and engineering for exposure assessment.

Biostatistics (or biometry) is the application of statistics to a wide range of topics in biology.

Epidemiology of Tuberculosis

Epidemiology of tuberculosis is the study about causative organism Mycobacterium tuberculosis and its pathophysiology, tuberculosis occurence, routes of  transmission from one person to other, the effective treatments available and further precautions to be taken to avoid reversion of the disease.

Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain, which most commonly affects the lungs. It is transmitted from person to person via droplets from the throat and lungs of people with the active respiratory disease. In healthy people, infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis often causes no symptoms, since the person's immune system acts to “wall off” the bacteria.

The symptoms of active TB of the lung are coughing, sometimes with sputum or blood, chest pains, weakness, weight loss, fever and night sweats. Tuberculosis is treatable with a six-month course of antibiotics.

Epidemiology and Infection

Epidemiology is the occurrence of communicable and chronic diseases, principally in the form of epidemics which is caused by microbial infection. Infection is the invasion of foreign microbial organism on our immune system for its survival and growth.

Infections are caused by infectious microrganisms including viruses, viroids, prions, bacteria, parasitic roundworms and pinworms, ticks, mites, fleas, and lice, ringworm, and other macroparasites such as tapeworms and other helminths. According to epidemiologic studies by WHO the top three single agent/disease killers are HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria.

While the number of deaths due to nearly every disease have decreased, deaths due to HIV/AIDS have increased fourfold. Childhood diseases include pertussis, poliomyelitis, diphtheria, measles and tetanus. Children also make up a large percentage of lower respiratory and diarrheal deaths.

Disambiguation

Disambiguation is the way of clearing the ambiguous discussions and making it direct and clear to understand. Epidemiology on various health conditions provides clear idea on the condition avoiding disambiguation.

Epidemiology and Community Health

Epidemiology and community health is the wide scope which covers the epidemic and infectious diseases affecting certain area or community’s health. This not only covers their occurrence and spread but also concentrates on recurrence and prevention methods to be taken.

Community health a field of public health, is a discipline which concerns itself with the study and improvement of the health characteristics of biological communities. While the term community can be broadly defined, community health tends to focus on geographical areas rather than people with shared characteristics.

Epidemiology and Disease Control

Epidemiology of disease conditions is important to control the disease. Hence epidemiology and disease control plays a vital role in the betterment of human race. Epidemiology for disease control has been increased in the recent days by using simple mathematical calculations and formulations disease control can be achieved.

Global Health

Global health is the health of populations in a global context. It has been defined as "the area of study, research and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide". Problems that transcend national borders or have a global political and economic impact are often emphasized.

Henceforth, global health is regarding worldwide health improvement, reduction of differences, and protection against global threats that disregard national borders. Global health can be achieved by estimating and analysing the current disease conditions. Various statistical and prevalence studies were done on this occasion and by using the same we can take the step towards global health.

Pediatric Epidemiology

Pediatric epidemiology is the branch of epidemiology which deals with the disorders and disease conditions that appear in the children, adolescence, and early childhood and the age limit usually ranges from birth up to 18 years of age.

A medical practitioner who specializes in this area is known as a pediatrician.  Pediatrician work both in hospitals, particularly those working in its specialized subfields such as neonatology, and as primary care physicians who specialize in children.

It includes all the conditions like obesity, congenital diseases, eating disorders, and genetic disorders that inherit from the parents.

Behavioral Epidemiology

Behavioral epidemiology is the branch of epidemiology that is related with the psychology. In this we can study about the lifestyle and behaviors of people and how they affect their health conditions. Behavioral disease conditions and disease re-occurrence depends on the behavior is the range of actions and mannerisms made by individuals in conjunction with themselves or their environment, which includes the other systems or organisms around as well as physical environment.

It is the response of the system or organism to various stimuli or inputs, whether internal or external, conscious or subconscious, overt or covert, and voluntary or involuntary.

Veterinary Epidemiology

Veterinary epidemiology is principally concerned with the study of diseases or conditions in animals that affect certain population or patterns of disease conditions within a population of animals, by which they are affected, the location of affected animals, and the patterns of disease through time can be studied by veterinary epidemiology.

Veterinary science helps human health through the monitoring and control of zoonotic infectious disease transmitted from non-human animals to humans, food safety, and indirectly through human applications from basic medical research.

They also help to maintain food supply through livestock health monitoring and treatment, and mental health by keeping pets healthy and long living. Veterinary scientists often collaborate with epidemiologists, and other health or natural scientists depending on type of work. Ethically, veterinarians are usually obliged to look after animal welfare.
