A Nurse’s Eye View— Excerpt from a health lecture series on influenza and the flu vaccine flu, you should: By John C. Witwer, RN OGDEN VALLEY – Influenza (flu) is a viral infection of the respiratory system. Symptoms include fever, headaches, fatigue, cough, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, and achy muscles. Additionally, children can experience nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, creating additional risks from dehydration. The peak flu season in the United States is from December through March. The virus is most often spread through the air from person-to-person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks. Transmission is also possible by touching the mouth or nose after contact with a contaminated surface. Illness due to the flu can cause moderate to severe sickness, loss of school and work time, and complications that can lead to hospitalization. Possible complications include pneumonia or even death. According to William J. Maratone, M.D. of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, nearly 20,000 Americans die annually because of the flu and its complications. The flu affects all age groups with some being more susceptible to serious complications than others. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) identifies the following to be at the greatest risk: Persons greater than 50 years of age. Adults and children greater than six months of age with chronic heart or lung conditions, including asthma. Adults and children greater than six months of age with diabetes, kidney disease, and/or weakened immune systems—including those resulting from medical and infectious conditions. Children and teenagers on long-term aspirin therapy. Women who will be greater than three months pregnant during flu season. According to the CDC, if you acquire the rest drink plenty of fluids avoid alcohol and tobacco after checking with your doctor, take medication to relieve the symptoms The best way to prevent further spread is through proper hand washing and hygiene practices. Cover your mouth when coughing, use disposable tissues, which you place in the trash immediately after use. Do not share cups or eating utensils without items being sanitized first. Flu prevention is possible with a yearly flu immunization. Besides the regular needle shot, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a nasal spray of the vaccination for people between the ages of 5 and 49. The National Center for Infectious Disease identified some groups of people who should not receive the flu immunization without a thorough doctor’s consultation. The following people are at risk for severe adverse reactions: People allergic to chicken eggs People with a past severe reaction People who have Guillain-Barre Additional information will be presented at the Huntsville Library Conference Room, October 16 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. There will be a flu shot clinic earlier at the library conducted by Applegate Homecare.
