The IAQ Video Network releases another educational video about important environmental, health & safety (EH&S) issues.

Phoenix, AZ, August 4th, 2013 -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate people about issues that may impact their health.  Their latest educational video discusses bacterial meningitis and the bacteria responsible for the infections.


Meningitis is an infection of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord.  The condition can be caused by a viral, fungal or bacterial infection. Bacterial meningitis is caused by a number of different types of bacteria, many of which are found in the environment and even with people without causing the host harm.


Bacterial meningitis is usually severe and while most people recover, it can cause serious complications, such as brain damage, hearing loss or learning disabilities.  In the United States, approximately 500 deaths occur each year due to the condition.


Some of the causes of bacterial meningitis can be contagious and be spread to other people,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “This usually happens when there is close or prolonged contact with a sick person or due to direct contact with a sick person’s oral secretions. We hope this new video helps to educate people about bacterial meningitis and things they can do to protect their health.”
