Some Swine Flu Facts that You Should Know

Swine flu will not kill! It’s the flu after all. That is the right that takes you within 5-7 days or sometimes more, when infected like any other viral flu. However, with sufficient rest and care for symptoms ease off, even without medication. The problem arises when patients with weak immune systems get a serious infection and develop secondary complications such as pulmonary infection or existing chronic conditions get aggravated. Thus, all suspected patients are isolated and treated according to categories A, B or C, depending on the severity of your case (according to the guidelines by the Ministry of Health and the Directorate General of Health Services in the India.)

If you or any body that you know have suspected swine flu-like symptoms recently, it is best to know which category it falls under and further treatment accordingly. Let me take a look here.

Category A:

flu patients with mild fever, cough / sore throat, headache, body aches, diarrhea and vomiting fall in Category A -19,459,003. []

can be isolated and treated, but do not require hospitalization. H1N1 not require proof of either. These patients are usually only treated for their symptoms and not the antiviral medicine Tamiflu (oseltamivir) is administered. They should be monitored for their progress every 24 to 48 hours. You should just stay home and rest.

Category B:

has two subcategories:

Category BI –

Patients with fever high and sore throat, in addition to symptoms Category-A. They may require appropriate treatment with Tamiflu (oseltamivir). However, they may still be under home isolation.


Category BII –

Patients with symptoms / conditions category BI and enter in high-risk groups such as children under 5, pregnant women, adults over 65 years of age and patients with chronic heart, liver or lungs, kidneys, blood, diabetes etc.

Patients in category B not essentially require proof of H1N1, but should be isolated and treated with antiviral drugs.

Category C:

Patients in category C are high-risk patients, who in addition to symptoms of categories A and B have advanced symptoms such as pain in the chest, difficulty breathing, abnormal blood pressure, drowsiness, sputum mixed with blood, poor appetite, bluish discoloration of nails or worsening of underlying chronic conditions, or organs deeply affected. These patients need evidence of H1N1 and immediate hospitalization and treatment.

Most cases of swine flu should not reach the high risk category C.

also allows debunk a few misconceptions about disease and understand what is really happening.

Executive Summary –

1. Initial symptoms include high fever, body aches or headache. Vomiting or diarrhea are also common. However, these are similar to the symptoms of the common cold, which can be confusing. If the fever does not go down with antipyretics or reoccuring normal within one or two hours of having the drug then you may need the advice of the doctor.

2. You will not get the swine flu virus if your immune system is extremely vulnerable. Even if I get it, remember it’s just a flu! Do not worry, this virus is in the air since 2009, and our bodies have more or less adjusted to this strain.

3. Only medical masks is N 95 masks provide protection against swine flu.

4. As mentioned above, it is like any other viral and usually goes away by itself within 7 days. You may not have to visit a hospital if you are able to manage the symptoms or do not feel too bad.

5. Having said this, please see a doctor if you experience difficulty breathing or if your child is worn, the flu can be dangerous when it develops into pneumonia.

6. Children, the elderly, pregnant women, asthmatics and people with compromised immunity, such as patients with cancer and heart should be careful to wear N-95 additional mask while moving out, especially in the areas that are likely to infection.

7. Do not take Tamiflu (or counter medication) without the advice of a physician as due to the indiscriminate use that the virus can develop resistance to the drug.

8. Just to drive again, swine flu is curable and does not kill if treated in time!
