Among the following bacterial diseases, which one result into increase in blood acidity and increase in haemoconcentration?
  • A
    Plague
  • B
    Chlorea
  • C
    Typhoid
  • D
    Septicemia

Solution

Cholera is caused due to the infection of the bacteriumVibrio cholerae. There is heavy loss of water and electrolytes from the body of the infected person. Due to severe diarrhoea, there is complete removal of the food from bowel, which results in blood acidity levels to rise. The plasma is the fluid part of the blood which gets decreased in volume due to loss of water. There is an increase in the concentration of RBCS compared to plasma, which is known as haemoconcentration. The level of haemoconcentration increases with the infection. 
Thus, the correct answer is option B.
