Influenza and ARI: prevention, treatment of complications
ARIs are among the most common infectious diseases. A serious problem is the fact that many of us abandon specific (vaccination) and non-specific prevention of influenza and acute respiratory infections. And when it’s ill, it transmits the disease “on the legs”, which leads to the development of serious complications.
SPEAK LESS THAN YOU TREATED
To the incidence of viral infections, including the flu, people with impaired immunity, whose protective forces of the body are more likely to cope with viruses and bacteria, are more prone to the disease. The risk group is small children and the elderly, people with chronic diseases, as well as those who by the nature of their activities are in contact with a large number of people – educators, physicians, service workers. To strengthen the protective forces of the body, to increase the activity of the immune system, especially in the period of mass morbidity, will help a number of measures. It has been noticed that people who lead a healthy lifestyle, eat well, adhere to hygiene measures are less commonly ill and in the case of acute respiratory disease, they recover faster, because their immunity is stronger. Also, to strengthen the immunity and to withstand the incidence of respiratory viral infections will help:
specific prevention (vaccination)
FILLING FROM FRAGRANCE: DO IT OR NO?
Unfortunately, influenza viruses are so mutated that life-long immunity in humans to all arising in the process of mutation of strains of influenza is not produced. However, before each epidemiological season, physicians conduct research on the basis of which a vaccine is developed that is able to prevent the incidence of influenza, whose strains will travel. Vaccination does not provide 100% guarantee, but in case of infection, the person will carry the disease in a mild form. A flu vaccination is especially recommended to people at risk. If you are not only at risk but also ill, do not listen to the recommendations of doctors and carry the acute respiratory viral infections on the legs, then you are very at risk for your health.
The risk of influenza and acute respiratory infections is precisely the complication: a person is weakened by illness and becomes an “easy prey” for bacterial infection, allergic reactions. One of the dangerous complications of acute respiratory viral infections is bacterial pneumonia (pneumonia), which in people at risk can even lead to fatal outcome. Often, after suffering a complication in a person formed chronic broncho-pulmonary and ENT pathology.
If you do not strongly want to make an influenza vaccine, remember that strengthening immunity with the help of immunostimulants of both synthetic and vegetable origin and vitamin complexes is required under the guidance of a family doctor or therapist. Also, a specialist, depending on each individual case, of existing chronic conditions, will recommend nutrition and a complex immunization of procedures.
HOW TO TREAT BRONCHITIS, SINUSS AND OTHER COMPLICATIONS OF ARVs?
The most frequent complications of influenza and acute respiratory infections are sinusitis (sinusitis), bronchitis, pneumonia, and children develop otitis media – inflammatory processes in different parts of the ear. Also, migrated respiratory viral infections can provoke inflammatory processes in the heart muscle (myocarditis).
If you become ill with the flu or acute respiratory infections, and the headache is again feeling worse, there is a high fever, a few days there is subfebrile (temperature 37,2-37,5), there is no cough, nasal or nasal sinuses, it is difficult to isolate breathe full of chest, it is necessary to consult a doctor and undergo a diagnosis.
You can definitely determine if there is an inflammation in the nasal sinuses, wheezing in the lungs, problems with bronchi, you probably will not be able to. Therefore, it is important that the specialist listen and examine the patient, referring to the diagnosis and, if necessary, the x-ray, sowed the microflora to determine the pathogen, etc. Based on a complete examination, the doctor will be able to appoint a correct treatment. If you are uncertain about choosing a GP, looking for an ENT specialist or clinic for diagnosis, you want to have an influenza vaccine, ITMED Clinic directory will help you make the right choice.
