Shingles - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Shingles is a painful skin condition in adults caused by the chicken pox virus also known as the varicella-zoster virus. If you had chickenpox as a child, you still have the varicella-zoster virus inside some of your nerves but not in active form. For unknown reasons, the varicella-zoster virus may become active again in older people or those with weakened immune systems. The reactivated virus travels along your nerves to your skin causing symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and pain. A red blistery rash quickly follows these symptoms. Shingles normally happens in a single patch on one side of your body. It may also happen on one of your shoulders, on the side of your neck or head. Within three to five days, bumps in the rash fill with fluid and become blisters that look like chicken pox. Next, the blisters fill with puss which forces them to break open and begin to scab over. When the scabs fall off and the blisters heal, the pain usually goes away. These symptoms usually last one to two months. You may experience a complication of shingles called postherpetic neruralgia, or PHN, which is pain even after your rash has cleared up. Other complications of shingles include vision loss, if shingles occurs around your eye, pneumonia, hearing problems, brain inflammation, neurologic problems, and skin infections. Both the chicken pox vaccine and the shingles vaccine can dramatically reduce your risk for getting shingles and postherpetic neuralgia. Although there is no cure for shingles, anti-viral drugs, such as acyclovir, can speed healing and reduce the severity of the rash when taken within three days after the rash appears. To reduce pain, your doctor may recommend over the counter pain medication, calamine lotion, cool compresses, and an oatmeal bath. For severe postherpetic neuralgia, your doctor may prescribe medications such as gabapentin.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"Our practice involves medical negligence cases exclusively. We have six attorneys and one physician on staff. We have used Medical Legal Art's staff for every one of our cases over the past 12 years and have found their services to be extraordinary.
