Enveloped viruses bud though the cell membrane of infected cells acquiring the membrane as the base of its envelope. Major viral matrix proteins hemagglutinin and neuraminidase poke though the envelope and carry it with them enveloped around the capsid (protein body). An infected cells will typically assemble thousands of viruses, the membrane will slowly be depleted and the cell will die.
A combination of substances in aqueous solution that resists changes in hydrogen ion concentration when a strong acid or a strong base is added to the mixture.
A fluid filled blister more than 5mm in diameter with thin walls. A bulla on the skin is a blister; a bulla within the tissues is more often referred to as a bleb (e.g. on the pleura – the membrane covering the lung.

Medically, any fluid produced or excreted by the body which could contain infectious agents (bloodborne pathogens) including blood, semen, vaginal secretions, cerebral spinal fluid, synovial fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, saliva in dental procedures, any fluid contaminated with blood or where it is impossible to identify the fluid.
Isolation of all moist and potentially infectious body substances (blood, feces, urine, sputum, saliva, wound drainage, and other body fluids) from all patients, regardless of their presumed infection status, primarily through the use of gloves.
A boil, also called a furuncle, is a deep folliculitis, infection of the hair follicle. It is almost always caused by infection by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus, resulting in a painful swollen area on the skin caused by an accumulation of pus and dead tissue. Individual boils clustered together are called carbuncles.
Method of feeding in which a large volume of formula is given in a short period of time, usually through a large syringe.
Bronchopleural (e.g., B-P fistula or air leak)
