Acute phase Inflammation Response

(Necessary and appropriate response to injury or infection)

 

-       Necessary for survival, ACUTE PHASE inflammation is the body's immediate response to infection or injury - occurs within minutes to hours

 Mechanism of Acute Inflammatory Phase 

-       Without inflammation, infections would go unchecked and wounds would never heal – including those from trauma, surgery, burns;

 

-       Symptoms - the damage site becomes red, swollen and warm, with possible loss of function, as healing mechanisms are initiated.

 

-       Repair the damage  - fibroblasts manufacture the extracellular matrix (ECM) and collagen to repair damaged connective tissue

 

-       Acute inflammation response is designed to work best in a well-nourished person with a mild to moderate injury /infection over a short period of time. 

 

 

Chronic Low-Level Inflammation  

(Prolonged, unresolved inflammation causes ongoing tissue damage and related problems, sometimes, but not always, manifesting as pain)

 

      When injury / infection continues and/or the problem is not resolved within a few days, it becomes a chronic inflammatory response

 

      Some problems are felt almost immediately -  such as pain in joints, others “fester behind the scenes” unnoticed until inflammatory damage reveals itself as a diagnosed health problem, such as a heart attack, diabetes or asthma.
