Vibrio vulnificus Discussed in New Online Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational video about important health & safety issues.
Phoenix, AZ, May 6th, 2013 -- 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. Their latest educational video discusses health issues associated with Vibrio vulnificus.
Vibrio vulnificus is a bacterium in the same family as those that cause cholera. It normally lives in warm seawater and can cause disease in those who eat contaminated seafood or have an open wound that is exposed to seawater. Although Vibrio vulnificus is a rare cause of disease, it is also believed to be underreported.
“With healthy people, ingesting the organism can cause vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “In immune-compromised persons, particularly those with chronic liver disease, it can infect the bloodstream causing a fatal outcome about 50% of the time. We hope this online video helps to shed some light on this organism.”
