H1N1 Influenza A: Symptoms & Precautions

Although I am deviating from scope of my Blog , but I believe since my blog is read by many of my freinds I wish to share Some info regarding H1N1.

Measures to consider, particularly when you are in an area where flu is rampant in the community:
  • Maintain good personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently. Carry a hand sanitizer for use when soap and water aren't readily available
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Avoid people who seem to be sick.
  • Avoid crowds as much as possible.
  • If you cannot avoid crowds, consider wearing a face mask or a respirator (if you are trained in using a respirator).
  • Monitor your health, and seek medical attention if you feel unwell.

To reduce the spread of flu:

  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a mask or a tissue.
  • Stay at home if you are unwell.
  • Limit your contact with others as much as possible.
  • Contact the Doctor or the Nodal Center nearest to your location, if you or your children develop flu-like symptoms.
  • When you arrive at the hospital, ensure that you tell them that you have recently been in an area that has reported H1N1 influenza.

The symptoms of H1N1 swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhoea and vomiting associated with H1N1 swine flu. Severe illness (pneumonia and respiratory failure) and even deaths have been reported with H1N1 swine flu infection. Like seasonal flu, H1N1 swine flu may cause a worsening of underlying chronic diseases.In adults, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath
  • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
  • Sudden dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
