 Franklin D. Roosevelt's paralytic illness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The unquestioned diagnosis at the time and thereafter in countless references was paralytic poliomyelitis, which was understandable because polio was epidemic in the northeastern United States during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
For paralytic poliomyelitis in Roosevelt's age group, the best estimate of the annual incidence was 2.3 / 100,000.
The March of Dimes initially focused on the rehabilitation of victims of paralytic polio, and supported the work of Dr. Jonas Salk and others that led to the discovery of the polio vaccines.

 Imported Vaccine-Associated Paralytic Poliomyelitis --- United States, 2005
Paralytic poliomyelitis is rare in the United States because of the success of universal childhood immunization and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
However, the isolation of Sabin-strain polioviruses types 2 and 3 from a stool specimen and absence of isolation or serologic evidence for infection with another agent known to cause polio-like symptoms (e.g., West Nile virus or enterovirus 71) is consistent with VAPP (2).
Overall, the risk for paralytic disease in a traveler is much greater in a polio-endemic country or outbreak country (e.g., Nigeria) than in an OPV-using country that is free from wild poliovirus, although this increase in risk is difficult to quantify.

 AllRefer Health - Intestinal Obstruction (Bowel Obstruction, Ileus, Intestinal Volvulus, Paralytic Ileus, ...
Paralytic ileus, also called pseudo-obstruction, is one of the major causes of obstruction in infants and children.
In the newborn, paralytic ileus that is associated with destruction of the bowel wall (necrotizing enterocolitis) is life-threatening and may lead to infecting the blood and lungs (pneumonia) in infants.
Paralytic ileus is marked by abdominal distention, absent bowel sounds (no noise heard when listening to abdomen) and relatively little pain (as compared to mechanical obstruction).

Paralytic ileus is a one of the major causes of obstruction in infants and children.
Paralytic ileus is marked by abdominal distention, absent bowel sounds (no noise heard when listening to abdomen) and very little pain (as compared to mechanical obstruction).
The incidence of paralytic ileus is high in comparison to mechanical obstruction but paralytic ileus is not as significant as mechanical obstruction.

 Definitions of Non-Paralytic and Paralytic Polio
This is the "nub" of the definition of paralytic polio.
Bulbar paralytic polio is accompanied by weakness of muscles supplied by the cranial nerves which may affect swallowing, breathing, facial muscles, tongue etcetera.
If you bite your tongue, mouth, can't chew gum etcetera it means you had bulbar polio because those nerves damaged are cranial nerves which stimulate those affected muscles (cranial means they come out of the head and not off the spine, rather from the back of the brain) --the bulb of the brain--hence bulbar.

 The Paralytic - As It Is Written   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
In all three Synoptic Gospels, the healing of the paralytic (Matthew 9:1–8; Mark 2:1–12; Luke 5:17–26) is followed immediately by the calling of the tax collector and the Lord’s eating with sinners (Matthew 9:9–13; Mark 2:13–17; Luke 5:27–32).
The paralytic was healed, after all, "that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins," and the point of the second story is that "I did not come to call the righteous but sinners."
When the healing of the paralytic is effected to demonstrate that Jesus is possessed of the "authority to forgive sins," it is done with that same ready dispatch with which he stilled the storm and drove the devils into the swine.

 Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning
Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning is a well known danger from consuming bivalve mollusks (oysters, clams, sea snails, and mussels).
If paralytic shellfish poisoning is suspected, save any remaining oysters, clams, sea snails, or mussels so they can be tested for toxin.
Sea snails have been a usual source of the toxin, and this is the first known outbreak of Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning in Alaska associated with sea snails.

 Explanation of Scripture read by Orthodox Christians - The healing of the paralytic - Answers only
During a particular feast of the Jews, Jesus went to Jerusalem, and encountered a paralytic who had been laying for 38 years by the "sheep's pool", which was a place where the sheep were washed before sacrifice.
The canon for the paralytic makes mention of Michael (who is known by the church as the "Supreme Commander" of the Heavenly Hosts) and asks his intercession several times.
The paralytic at Peter's house was healed of his sins first, and the one at the sheep's' pool was reminded concerning his sins after he was healed of his physical infirmity.

 Lincolnshire Post-Polio Library [Late functional deterioration following paralytic poliomyelitis]
The incidence of acute paralytic poliomyelitis has been reduced dramatically over the past 35 years by means of mass vaccination campaigns, careful surveillance, and targeting areas in which the 'wild' virus persists.
The assessment sought clear evidence for the diagnosis of paralytic polio to be made, the nature of stable function, the latency to onset of the functional deterioration and its clinical manifestations.
In summary, of patients with previous paralytic poliomyelitis presenting with late functional deterioration at a median of 35 years after the acute illness, the majority of those who presented with new or increasing locomotor symptoms had degenerative joint disease, and this is likely to be a major factor in their functional deterioration.

 Paralytic Poliomyelitis -- United States, 1980-1994
Although reasons for the decline have not been firmly established, enforcement of state vaccination requirements for school entry beginning in the late 1960s may have decreased the proportion of parents and adult close contacts of vaccinees without immunity to poliovirus, particularly in areas where compliance with these requirements is high (8).
Enhanced surveillance for paralytic poliomyelitis (whether vaccine- or wild poliovirus-associated) is necessary to monitor the impact of the change in the routine poliovirus vaccination policy.
A clinical case definition for reporting cases of paralytic poliomyelitis * was adopted by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists in 1990.

 Role of Sabin 3 Poliovirus in Vaccine-Associated Paralytic Poliomyelitis in the United States
Paralytic poliomyelitis still exists in the US, but it is solely the result of the administration of OPV (31).
The estimated risks of VAPP in recipients of OPV is approximately 1 in 1.2 million for the f irst dose and 1 in 6.2 million for the second dose (31).
The use of OPV and IPV has vastly reduced the incidence of poliomyelitis world wide, and the last reported case of paralytic poliomyelitis in the Western Hemisphere was reported in 1990 (10).

 CHURCH FATHERS: Homily on the Paralytic (Chrysostom)
How then shall we make it clear that this paralytic is not the same as the other, but a different man? By many tokens, both of place and time, and season, and day, and from the manner of the cure, and the coming of the physician and the loneliness of the man who was healed.

The term 'prevalence' of Paralytic ileus usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Paralytic ileus at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Paralytic ileus refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Paralytic ileus diagnosed each year.
Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence.
