Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome – SIRS

I bet you never heard of this. I had not either until reading about “the flu” which is also called HIV (Human Influenza Virus).

In 2016 SIRS was replaced with qSOFA [1]. I have no clue what qSOFA is, maybe it’s where queer doctors sit and decide these things.

I came across this term when scanning news sites and a headline read something about a 22 year old dying of it. The picture of him was bodybuilder in great health.

Sepsis. Think of septic as in tank. Sepsis/septic. It’s basically a condition of a lot of bacteriological, pathogenic, viral infection in the body.

It’s especially interesting to read about “host factors” which mentions PAMP, DAMP, MODS, and ARDS.

Upon detection of microbial antigens, the host systemic immune system is activated. Immune cells not only recognize PAMP (Pathogen-associated molecular pattern), but also Damage-associated molecular pattern (DAMP) from damaged tissues. Uncontrolled immune response was then activated because leukocytes are not recruited to the specific site of infection, but instead they are recruited all over the body. Then, immunosuppression state ensues when the proinflammatory T helper cell 1 (TH1) is shifted to TH2,[41] mediated by interleukin 10, which is known as “compensatory anti-inflammatory response syndrome”.[18] The apoptosis (cell death) of lymphocytes further worsens the immunosuppression. Subsequently, multiple organ failure ensues because tissues are unable to use oxygen efficiently due to inhibition of cytochrome c oxidase.[41]

Inflammatory responses cause multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) through various mechanisms as described below. Increased permeability of the lung vessels causes leaking of fluids into alveoli, which results in pulmonary edema and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

When you read some of this stuff you start noticing how different acronyms often state the same thing. For example, a damage associated molecular pattern (DAMP) can be referred to as disease. ARDS can be referred to as disease and PAMP can be referred to as disease.

AIDS can also be referred to as disease.

When we try to fight disease, do we really need all these sub classifications and to understand all their complex sub classifications? Not necessarily. It becomes like how one can over analyze something. Ever had a friend that just couldn’t decide what to order at the restaurant dinner table? Basically it’s just dinner, it’s just food, pick something right? With disease it’s basically disease, whatever you pick you have disease, whatever food you pick you have nourishment.

Should you get vaccinated for the flu?

Yes, if it stops you from getting the flu, but it doesn’t. It gives you the flu.

Why get something that you don’t want?

Even Scotland’s Parliment knows this, as they declare that it is a decision for each person to make for themselves, they do not force it on anyone[2], which is in such contrast to the militant draconian Nazi state of California which mandates all children be given the flu or they cannot attend school.

It’s also interesting to see how words are being used now to try to get people to believe something is a certain way when it is not.

For example, in a statement they reference “evidence-based medicine” to imply there is medicine that is not evidence based. This is s slick pitch to try to get people to believe that what is currently being stated, in this case the push to make it mandatory that people be given the flu, be readily adopted implying that all other medicine is too questionable to believe whereas “evidence-based” should be believed. It also implies that “evidence-based medicine” should not be questioned, giving those who hear that term the idea that if it’s based on evidence, how can it be questioned, but those who would infer that don’t understand how science and evidences work.

Maybe they could call it “correct conclusion based medicine” but since all medicine is used on moving targets, no medicine can be conclusive so as evidence based as one would make it, the claims of their efficacy are all questionable to various degrees in scientific analysis.

One GP, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “When flu changes to a new strain, the old vaccine no longer works. “The evidence is conflicted on the benefits. The current epidemic still happened despite the vaccination programme.” Carl Heneghan, professor of evidence-based medicine at the University of Oxford, agrees that take up is low because the evidence of its effectiveness is “uncertain”.

Medicine is all evidence based.
