Though it is scary, fever is a good thing, it is the body fighting off the infection. A child can spike to 104.5 and not have troubles, even with it going as high as 105. Yes, you can have febral (spelling) seizures, not life threatening.
Try cooling her off in a luke warm bath before bedtime. If your Dr doesn't deem it necessary, you shouldn't have to take her to the ER. My daughter had a fever of 103.5 for almost five days, it was scary, it would go down, go back up, she ended up having walking pnuemonia. Hang in there, just keep in contact with your Dr at all times. The flu takes 5 to 7 days to go away. Did your Dr take a nasal swab to confirm it was the flu? If not have him or her do so. It could be another infection, strep, viral, bacterial. A fever shouldn't last more the 3 days is what I learned with my daughter a few months ago. I didn't rush her in as her fever only came up in the evenings and she wasn't suffering any other symptoms.

Hi M. - if your daughter has been sick long enough to take her to the doctor twice and having non-responsive fevers, she needs to be seen by a doctor - today. Her fever should go down at least 1 degree in response to tylenol/motrin. A fever of 102-104 is not out of the ordinary but a fever that is unresponsive or hangs on more than 72 hours means there is a problem. She could easily start out with the flu or a para-flu and have it turn into something bacterial. We just went through this same thing in December - me, my husband and my 20month old. My husband got better on his own but my son and I needed antiobiotics. We both started getting better within a day of starting a strong antibiotic.

Be your own advocate - if you don't feel your primary care doc is listening - go to see another doc! It may cost some extra money, but your daughter's health is worth every penny!!

ALSO - alcohol baths are no longer recommended to reduce fevers. It can be absorbed through the skin and the chill can actually make a fever spike.

I have been told that it's not an emergency until their temperature reaches 106 degrees. Try to keep her fluids up as much as possible. This will help with the fever. Pedialyte, or the equivalent, is a good way to keep her hydrated.

M.: The time that you spent writing your letter, I would of
spent that time taking her to the E.R. I am a sixty year old
grandpa and there is nothing worse that seing a two year old in a casket. A trip tho E.R. and a thousand dollar bill is very cheap to keep a child. Good luck and may GOD bleas you.

hi M..
been there honey. your doing everything you can to help your little girl, so don't worry. now, when her temp is higher than 101 degrees for two plus hours, then take her to the ER. No one will say anything because you'd just be acting like all mothers do. I took my one year old son to the ER a few weeks ago because he seemed to be having a hard time breathing and his nails were turning blue. turns out he had croup, and the staff said, better to bring them in then have more severe consequences for not. high temps could make your daughter have seizures, but your already doing everything you can to prevent that(like anything is preventable!) so just try to relax and give that girl lots of lovin'! she'll be fine soon enough.

If your child has that high a temp at night, then yes you should take her to the ER.
But if you have alsohol, soak a rag and put it on her chest.
Do not put it directly on her skin, have a T-Shirt on her.
Then make sure she is covered up good, because the alcohol will make her sweat and if she gets cold while sweating she could get pneumonia.
I always slept with my sons when I resorted to this, it is an old remedy but it works.
Good Luck dear

Hi my name is A. and i am a nurse, I thnk that you should take your child to the ER if the fever is 102 or higher due to the fact that they might want and need to start IV fluids. Here is a lil info about seizures that children can have when they have such a high fever:

Fever seizures (sometimes called fever convulsions) are uncontrolled muscle spasms that can occur in children who have a rapid increase in body temperature. You may not even know your child has a fever. The rapid increase in body temperature in a short period of time is the cause of the fever seizure. Once a fever has reached a high temperature, the risk of a seizure is probably over. Most children who have a fever seizure have temperatures above 102 F.

Dr W J Grobler BVSc.

The name "Cat flu" is misleading because even though cats suffer from a similar disease, the disease is not contracted from cats. The symptoms in dogs are due to intestinal involvement and very unlike flu symptoms. Dry, windy weather sees more cases which occur mostly in puppies, but previously unexposed, unvaccinated adult dogs are also at risk. Even with the best treatment available some animals still don't survive, so vaccination is of paramount importance in the prevention of this terrible disease.

This serious disease is caused by one of the smallest viruses known to man called Canine Parvovirus (CPV).(Parvo is the Latin for small). As many as 300 000 virus particles will fit into a millimeter!

Albeit so small the virus is extremely tough and will survive most disinfectants. It may stay alive in the environment for as long as two years if conditions are favourable. In 1978 when the first cases of Parvovirus in dogs were seen, the virus spread all over the world in a matter of months, often without the involvement of dogs in the transmission.

Massive numbers of virus occur in the stool of a sick dog. One gram of faeces may contain enough virus to infect 10 million susceptible dogs!

The virus need certain enzymes to grow. These enzymes are found in rapid growing cells like the ones lining the intestinal tract. These cells grow quickly enough so that the intestinal lining is renewed every two to three days. If the virus grow inside these cells they break up leaving large areas of damaged lining that lead to severe loss of body fluids. The normal intestinal flora which under ordinary circumstances are pretty harmless, can now invade the body through the damaged areas.

  • Often a high fever
  • Listlessness
  • No appetite
  • Continuous vomiting or foaming at the mouth
  • Very smelly diarrhoea that frequently becomes blood-tinged
  • White or bluish gums
  • Abdominal pain
  • Dehydration � animals appear to have lost weight overnight

The symptoms usually appear very suddenly and susceptible pups may die within a few hours. Pups with large numbers of antibodies wil show much lighter symptoms. In rare instances animals may develop infection of the heart muscles with fatal results.

A bitch with good immunity against parvo will transfer these antibodies to her pups in the uterus. They will then be protected to a large degree for a period of six to twelve weeks. Exposure to the virus, whether naturally or through vaccination wil enhance this immunity. Healthy puppies, like the one on the left should thus be vaccinated at six weeks of age, again four weeks later and preferably a third time another four weeks later. It is very unlikely that a pup that has had three properly administered vaccinations will contract the disease. It is however important to stress that puppies must be healthy and free from worms before they can be vaccinated.

Because Parvovirus is one of the most frustrating diseases a vet has to put up with, vaccination remains the only efficient way of saving the puppy owner a lot of tears and regret.

At present there are no affordable injectable drugs that kill viruses in the body, thus no specific treatment exists once the virus is inside the body. Treatment is aimed at curbing secondary bacteria, stopping vomiting and replenishing body fluids.

  • Antibiotics
  • Anti-emetics
  • Intravenous fluid administration
  • Inteflora or similar probiotics to replenish gut flora (beneficial bacteria in the intestines)
  • Activated charcoal to bind toxins in the gut
  • Oral electrolytes if animals are still drinking and not vomiting
  • Small quantities of bland food eg. rice and cooked chicken
  • Blood transfusion in very severe cases

Fibromyalgia means widespread pain in the muscles, but this syndrome causes many other symptoms. 1 Lab tests seldom validate your condition and the results often make you feel like a hypochondriac. Pressing on tender points can diagnose fibromyalgia, but the exam still does not explain all of your symptoms. 2

People with fibromyalgia often describe their symptoms as a flu-like infection that doesn’t go away. It leaves you exhausted and unable to think or find the right words (symptoms of fibro fog). 3 With fibromyalgia, you have trouble sleeping and wake up stiff and achy. 4 Your symptoms can be debilitating and you probably feel as though you have to push yourself to get anything done. 5,6

  • Pain all over
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Brain fog
  • Morning stiffness
  • Muscle knots, cramping, weakness
  • Digestive disorders
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Balance problems
  • Itchy/burning skin
  • Affects 3 to 5 percent of the general population 7
  • Occurs in people of all ages, even children
  • Men develop fibromyalgia too, although more women are diagnosed with it
  • Symptoms are chronic but may fluctuate throughout the day
  • Roughly one-quarter of people with fibromyalgia are work-disabled 4
  • Three drugs are FDA-approved for fibromyalgia treatment

Mycoplasma may be the only infection in a body or can be a co-infection of Lyme. There are various species of mycoplasmas. Approximately 60% of Lyme infected people also have mycoplasmal infections. The most common are Mycoplasma fermentans, Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, M. genitalium, M. penetrans,and some other species. In some cases multiple mycoplasmal infections are present in Lyme Disease, thereby complicating the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease because the symptoms are similar.

Mycoplasma infections can independently cause many of the signs and symptoms found in Lyme Disease, and they may exacerbate the clinical signs and symptoms and also complicate treatment of the Mycoplasma condition. Some people cycle in with Borrelia and various mycoplasmas in their blood cells.

The parainfluenza virus is often referred to by other names, such as canine influenza virus, greyhound disease and race flu. This virus used to affect only horses and is believed to have adapted to become contagious to dogs as well. Currently, no other species are at risk of this particular strain of the virus. Parainfluenza virus is easily spread from dog to dog and causes symptoms which may become fatal. The highest instances of this respiratory infection are seen in areas with high dog populations, such as race tracks, boarding kennels and pet stores, but it remains highly contagious to any dog of any age.

Symptoms of parainfluenza virus include many general symptoms seen in other infections, viruses and diseases. Symptoms can vary in intensity and commonly affect younger puppies and aging dogs the worst. This virus is commonly mistaken for kennel cough, as the symptoms between the two are similar. It's important to keep in mind that kennel cough usually produces no additional symptoms, other than the cough. Symptoms to look for when parainfluenza virus is suspected are as follows:

  • Dry or hacking cough that may worsen with activity
  • Fever
  • Difficulty with breathing, wheezing
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Runny eyes, eye inflammation or conjunctivitis
  • Possible pneumonia with depression, loss of appetite and lethargy

When parainfluenza virus is suspected but only a cough exists, certain tests will be required to differentiate between kennel cough and the more serious parainfluenza virus. A chest x-ray can help to determine the presence of pneumonia. Blood testing may also be important to rule out other possibilities and to inspect over a period of weeks to determine the actual cause of illness. Quickly discovering a proper diagnosis can be helpful when deciding if the dog must be quarantined or to begin effective treatment as soon as possible.

Treatment options for parainfluenza virus vary based upon a number of options. One of the most important factors is to contain the virus and treat it before it can spread to other dogs. Many dogs can recover from this virus naturally, but they remain contagious and the virus can easily spread through respiratory secretions and through the air. For this reason, the virus is usually treated aggressively with antibiotics and antiviral drugs. If necessary, a cough suppressant may be used. Intravenous fluids may help to keep the dog hydrated and strengthen the immune system, preventing secondary bacterial infections or other complications.

It's not recommended to treat parainfluenza virus in dogs from your home, but the following tips may help if you decide this is the best option for your family. Likewise, you may find this information beneficial for home care after hospitalization and treatment for the virus:

  • Limit your dog's exercise and play or rest quietly with the dog
  • Keep the dog away from other dogs in the household during treatment and for at least one week following
  • Feed soft food if throat irritation is present
  • Encourage sufficient fluid intake by providing adequate water at all times
  • Avoid exposure to loud noises, chemical fumes or other events that may cause undue stress
  • Remove collars to encourage sufficient air intake
  • Set up a humidifier

Avian influenza (bird flu) in feral pigeons - what are the risks?

Bird flu, fowl plague, bird influenza, Asian bird flu, HPAI, LPAI, H5N1, H7N2, H7, H5N2

Influenza has been known about since 1878 and is caused by a type ‘A’ influenza virus. It has historically been known as ‘fowl plague’. There are three types of influenza virus: type A, type B and type C. Most forms of influenza are solely associated with humans, but the type A influenza virus has been found in pigs, horses and occasionally in birds and other mammals. Types B and C are human-specific and are not found in animals, mammals or birds. The type associated with recent outbreaks of avian influenza (bird flu) in south-east Asia is the type A influenza virus.

Thousands of influenza viruses, belonging to many sub-types, have been found in both domesticated and wild birds all over the world. Currently, avian influenza is recognised in two forms:

  • Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI)
  • Low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI)

The highly pathogenic form ('pathogenic' refers to the ability of an infecting agent to produce disease - hence, a virus that is highly pathogenic is capable of producing severe disease) is the most virulent form of the disease and can spread rapidly, particularly when found in intensively farmed domestic poultry. The mortality rate for birds infected with the highly pathogenic form can be up to 100% and the disease can develop so fast that in some cases birds will die without ever having showed any signs that they had contracted the disease. The highly pathogenic form is so virulent that one gram of infected chicken excrement can contain enough highly pathogenic virus to infect 100,000 birds. Conversely, the low pathogenic form results in a milder, less significant form of the disease with infected birds rarely becoming ill or demonstrating symptoms, but they still have the potential to pass the disease on to other birds or animals. Certain low pathogenic forms can, however, mutate into highly pathogenic strains.

Neben der medikamentösen Therapie ist insbesondere bei Kindern eine ausreichende Flüssigkeitszufuhr wichtig. Um möglichst rasch wieder gesund zu werden, kann es helfen, die Schleimhäute feucht zu halten (zum Beispiel durch Inhalationen mit heißem Wasserdampf) und sich gesund zu ernähren. Außerdem braucht der Körper in dieser Situation viel Ruhe, um sich zu erholen. Dies hilft auch, möglichen Komplikationen vorzubeugen. Auf Alkohol und Rauchen sollte gänzlich verzichtet werden.

Eggs of the infecting parasite can be identified in the stool or urine of the patient under a microscope. Examination of stool for the identification of the parasites is more common. An egg per gram (epg) is the scientific unit used to measure the eggs in the feces of the affected patient. Stool examination is recommended to patients affected with schistosoma mansoni or schistosoma japonicum; and urine examination for schistosoma haematobium.

Sometimes the Kato-Katz technique (20 to 50 mg of fecal material) or the Ritchie technique is also used for field surveys and investigational purposes.

Differences between flu and pregnancy symptoms

For a woman who has unexpectedly become pregnant, and possibly for the first time in her life, the most initial symptoms might seem just like another bout of the flu (also known as influenza).
The flu is an infectious disease, viral in origin. It is generally self-limiting and will settle down within a week or so. The flu affects all the systems of the body, whereas pregnancy will have more of gastrointestinal and genitor-urinary affections. The flu starts once a person comes in contact with another person who is suffering from it and it is extremely contagious. The flu is commonly seen in children who have low immunity.
Morning sickness (high degree of nausea and vomiting) is the most important symptom of pregnancy. Morning sickness is so called because the nausea is usually most severe in the mornings. It may subside in some patients after the first three months or it may continue up until the last month. It occurs due to a drop in blood sugar levels and an increase in circulating hormones. Nausea generally increases in the mornings, as there is a state of fasting the entire night leading to a dip in the blood glucose levels.
Symptoms of the flu are marked by a sudden onset of cold, cough, fever of mild degree and tremendous weakness due to joint pains and muscle pains. With the flu, patients will complain of severe headache and fever, whereas in pregnancy females will have more of a feeling of giddiness and dizziness. The spells occur especially while suddenly getting up from a sleeping position or during or after long hours of working. If the caloric needs are not met during pregnancy, it will lead to spells of such weakness and is seen commonly in females with poor food intake.
Flu patients have a reduced appetite due to altered taste sensations and hence face weight loss, but in pregnancy there is a sudden increase in the appetite and weight. It is due to the high energy needed in order to supply adequate nutrition to the growing baby. Flu symptoms will be short term and self-resolving, whereas pregnancy symptoms will be long-term and continue easily for the term of three months at a stretch. In the case of the flu affecting the gastro-intestinal tract, symptoms like diarrhea, cramps and pain in the lower abdomen, a fever and severe nausea and vomiting can be seen. Also, there will be signs of dehydration and fatigue. It should not be confused with morning sickness of pregnancy, as in pregnancy nausea will be present throughout the first three to four months but is intense usually only in the morning, subsiding for the remainder of the day and often is not relieved by medications. Typically, pregnant females have high sensitivity to odors of any kind and that will bring on the wave of nausea. Along with these symptoms, there is presence of tenderness of breasts, bloating of the abdomen, irresistible cravings for various foods, repeated heartburn and hyperacidity, etc.
Flu symptoms will be seen in any individual, be it male or female, of any age, whereas pregnancy occurs only in females of between the ages of 14 to 50 years. The flu can be controlled by asking the patient to ingest more fluids, rest and take anti-viral medications if needed. Also, the spread of the virus can be curbed by wearing masks, which will reduce air transfer. A pregnancy can be confirmed by doing a simple home urine pregnancy test or an ultrasound.

Summary: The flu is an infectious disease of viral origin causing symptoms like cold, cough, fever, etc. It will only affect after you contract the infection from other individuals, and hence should not be confused with pregnancy symptoms which will begin once conception starts.

Influenza viruses continued to circulate in the Region with 28% of the individuals sampled from primary healthcare settings testing positive, while all countries reported low or medium intensity of activity of respiratory infections.

Both influenza virus types A and B were co-circulating with the majority being type A viruses.

  • Influenza has been circulating widely in the Region since week 52/2017, based on positivity rates among sentinel specimens, which is longer than in recent seasons and may contribute to the severity of this season.

For the Region overall, the majority of influenza viruses detected were type B, representing a high level of circulation of influenza B viruses compared to recent seasons. B/Yamagata lineage viruses have greatly outnumbered those of the B/Victoria lineage. Click here for more information

Different patterns of dominant type and A subtypes were observed between the countries of the Region. Influenza A viruses are now dominant in several eastern European countries.

Of the type A virus detections from sentinel sources, the majority of which were subtyped, A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses have outnumbered A(H3N2) viruses. In non-sentinel sources, more A(H3N2) viruses than A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses were reported. Click here for more information

While low in number, 55% of characterized A(H3N2) viruses belong to clade 3C.2a and 41% of B/Victoria lineage viruses belong to a subclade of clade 1A viruses that are antigenically distinct from the current trivalent vaccine component. Click here for more information

The majority of severe cases reported this season are due to influenza type B and have mostly occurred in persons above the age of 15 years. Click here for more information

Mortality from all causes based on pooled data from 1 9 EU countries and regions that reported to EuroMOMO remained elevated in some countries. Click here for more information

Interim results from 5 European studies indicate 25 to 52% vaccine effectiveness against any influenza. Click here for more information

Influenza or flu is an infectious disease that affects birds and mammals. It is caused by the different strains of the influenza virus. It causes infection of the respiratory tract and may lead to a wide range of symptoms that have been enumerated below. The transmission of this virus, usually takes place through air from mammal to mammal. For example, when a person infected with the influenza virus coughs, he releases some of the viruses into the air. The same air may be inhaled by another person, leading to an infection.
Many strains of the influenza virus are highly pathogenic in nature and have caused 3 pandemics in the last century. Apart from them, seasonal epidemics of influenza are also known to occur throughout the world.
The most recent influenza threat has been in the form of the H5N1 virus that affects birds. Still in its emerging stage, this virus is yet to adapt itself to humans. However, it poses the greatest pandemic threat in today's world.

If you are looking for reliable protection against flu, check Viral-Protec which boost resistance to flu and other viruses.

Influenza can cause a variety of symptoms. Once a person has been infected with the flu virus, the symptoms start appearing within 1 to 4 days. Some of the seasonal flu symptoms are as follows:

  • In the initial stages of flu symptoms, a person may develop a fever, with temperature of up to 104 ° Fahrenheit. This fever usually disappears after a few days.
  • The infected person also feels exhausted during the early days. He may get tired by doing the least amount of work. The tiredness also disappears after a few days.
  • These stages of flu symptoms are usually followed by a stuffy nose and a sore throat.
  • During this period, the infected person may also suffer from body ache. These aches may be so severe that the person may be confined to his bed for a number of days. These aches usually occur in the lower back and in the legs.
  • Eyes of the person may suffer from irritation. In some cases, the person may also suffer from ophthalmic infections like conjunctivitis.
  • The person may also suffer from frequent head aches.
  • Influenza may also lead to stomach disorders like abdominal pains, and diarrhea. One should note that these symptoms correspond to gastroenteritis as well and hence, should not be confused as flu, unless accompanied by other seasonal flu symptoms.
  • In case, an individual is taking drugs to fight cancer or smokes regularly, then he is likely to have more severe symptoms due to influenza. Flu is also prevalent in children below the age of 5 and in individuals above the age of 65, who already suffer from some chronic disease.
  • In serious cases, flu may also lead to pneumonia. Often, death among flu patients is caused, because of this condition.
People often confuse the seasonal flu symptoms with those of common cold. Flu symptoms are usually more severe than those of common cold and last for a longer period of time. Thus, one should not believe that one has flu, if one has fever. Statistics show that only 25 % of the people who have fever are suffering from flu.

    The best treatment for mono is plenty of rest, especially early in the course of the illness when symptoms are the most severe. Acetaminophen or ibuprofen can help to relieve a fever and aching muscles. Never give aspirin to a child who has a viral illness because its use has been linked to Reye syndrome, which may lead to liver failure and can even be fatal.

    In most cases, mono symptoms go away in a matter of weeks with plenty of rest and fluids. If they seem to linger, or if you have any other questions, talk with your child's doctor.

    Deadly New Virus Warning: What are the Symptoms Of The Virus That Killed 8?

    By iScienceTimes Staff on March 8, 2013 12:54 PM EST

    A deadly new virus warning has been issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In a statement released Thursday, the CDC warned state and local health officials about potential infections from a deadly new virus that has never been seen before in humans.

    "Genetic sequence analyses have shown that this new virus is different from any other known human coronaviruses," the CDC stated in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

    Like Us on Facebook

    The new virus has infected 14 people and killed eight since it was first reported in Sept. 2012. Most of the infections have occurred in the Middle East, specifically Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan, with three instances in the United Kingdom. No cases have been reported in the U.S., the CDC noted.

    According to the CDC's analysis, the virus is a coronavirus, which are thought to cause the majority of all common colds in human adults. It is also part of the same family of viruses that caused the deadly outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) that first emerged in Asia in 2003, Fox News reports. When SARS first appeared, it quickly spread to more than two dozen countries in North America, South America, Europe and Asia before it was contained. There were 774 total deaths reported that were caused by SARS, most of which were in China. Viruses of the coronavirus family also cause a number of diseases in animals.

    Three of the deadly new virus cases occurred in the UK within a single family. The small outbreak began with a 60-year-old man who had recently traveled to Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, and who developed a respiratory illness on Jan. 24 while still in the Middle East. The man was hospitalized after returning to the UK, and has been receiving intensive care. Another man living in the 60-year-old's household also got the virus and developed a respiratory illness on Feb. 6. He died shortly after. A second individual, a female in the house, developed a respiratory illness on Feb. 5, but did not need to be hospitalized and has recovered. This is how the CDC learned that the virus can be transmitted through human-to-human contact.

    Symptoms of infection with this deadly new virus include severe acute respiratory illness with fever, cough and shortness of breath. The CDC recommends that anyone who traveled from the Arabian Peninsula recently who develops an unexplained respiratory infection within ten days should seek immediate medical treatment. The CDC has yet to issue a warning about restricting travel to the areas affected by the deadly new virus.

De plus, lorsque les virus de l’influenza circulent de façon soutenue, le DSV produit un graphique de l’activité virologique relatif aux saisons antérieures. Ce bilan est lui aussi mis à jour une fois par semaine, pendant la saison grippale.

    Assurée en partenariat avec les directions de santé publique, la surveillance des éclosions d’influenza dans les centres d’hébergement et de soins de longue durée (CHSLD) est basée sur le signalement volontaire, par ces centres, des éclosions d’au moins deux cas d’infection au même type d’influenza survenus dans les dix jours, dont un a été confirmé par un test d’amplification des acides nucléiques. Cette surveillance est continue et effective toute l’année.

    La surveillance de l’activité grippale à l’urgence se fait à partir des données consignées dans la Console provinciale des urgences, une base de données administrée par la Direction générale des services de santé et médecine universitaire (DGSSMU). Elle s’appuie sur deux indicateurs: les consultations pour « Fièvre et toux » ainsi que les diagnostics de « Grippe/Influenza » qui ont été posés au terme de cette consultation.

    La surveillance des admissions dans les centres hospitaliers après un diagnostic de « Pneumonie/Influenza » est assurée à partir des données inscrites dans le Relevé quotidien de la situation à l’urgence et au centre hospitalier, une base de données gérée par la Direction générale des services sociaux.

    Autres indicateurs et projets spéciaux de surveillance

    Le DSV, de par son partenariat avec la DGSSMU et l’Institut national de santé publique du Québec, analyse les données relatives à des indicateurs secondaires qui ne font pas l’objet d’une publication régulière. Figurent parmi ces indicateurs:

    • la surveillance des syndromes d’allure grippale (SAG) par les groupes de médecine de famille sentinelles;
    • la surveillance, dans certains hôpitaux, des admissions attribuables à une infection grippale confirmée par laboratoire;
    • la surveillance des appels pour un SAG au service Info-Santé et Info-Social;
    • la veille épidémiologique et scientifique effectuée par différents partenaires.

    En plus des indicateurs de l’activité grippale définis par le DSV, des données et des renseignements sont recueillis auprès de diverses sources aux fins des objectifs du système de surveillance de la grippe. Ces données et renseignements concernent notamment:

    • l’identification des virus de l’influenza dans les laboratoires du Québec
      Au Québec, une quarantaine de laboratoires effectuent une surveillance continue des virus de l’influenza et d’autres virus respiratoires. Ce réseau de laboratoires sentinelles est coordonné par le Laboratoire de santé publique du Québec (LSPQ). Toutes les semaines, ce dernier reçoit les données de surveillance recueillies par les laboratoires hospitaliers membres du réseau et publie les résultats des analyses. Dans ses rapports, le LSPQ indique, notamment, le nombre d’analyses effectuées, le nombre de cas de grippe confirmés par groupe d’âge ainsi que la distribution géographique des cas.

    Le bulletin Flash Grippe est une production de la Direction de la vigie sanitaire (DVS) du ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.

    Son contenu est le reflet d’un effort concerté entre service Info-Santé, les directions de santé publique, le Laboratoire de santé publique du Québec, l’Institut national de santé publique du Québec et l’ensemble des laboratoires sentinelles du Québec, que nous remercions pour leur contribution.

    Tan and Manoukian reported that 500 children were hospitalized for croup at one pediatric hospital over a 32-month period. [6] Approximately 98% had viral croup, and 2% had bacterial tracheitis. Cases usually occur in the fall or winter months, mimicking the epidemiology of viral croup.

    A study that described the frequency and severity of complications in hospitalized children younger than 18 years with seasonal influenza (during 2003-2009) and 2009 pandemic influenza A(H1N1) (during 2009-2010) reported that out of 7293 children hospitalized with influenza, less than 2% had complications from tracheitis. However, along with other rare complications, tracheitis was associated with a median hospitalization duration of more than 6 days, with 48%-70% of children requiring intensive care. [7]


    According to a recent study, bacterial tracheitis remains a rare condition, with an estimated incidence of approximately 0.1 cases per 100,000 children per year. [8]

    The predominant morbidity and mortality is related to the potential for acute upper airway obstruction and induced hypoxic insults. The mortality rate has been estimated at 4-20%. In the acute phase, patients generally do well if the airway is adequately managed and if antibiotic therapy is promptly initiated.

    In most epidemiologic studies, male cases are preponderant. Gallagher et al reported a male-to-female predominance of 2:1. [9]

    Bacterial tracheitis may occur in any pediatric age group. Gallagher et al reported 161 cases of patients younger than 16 years. [9] The age range was from 3 weeks to 16 years, with a mean age of 4 years. This is in contrast to viral laryngotracheobronchitis, which occurs in patients aged 6 months to 3 years.

    Q. I have found that elderberry extract really helps against the common cold. If I start taking it soon enough I can keep the cold from getting a foothold.

    A. German researchers have found that a standardized elderberry extract is active against bacteria and viruses that cause upper respiratory tract infections (BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Feb. 25, 2011). Although the preliminary research is promising, more clinical studies are needed (Phytotherapy Research, Jan. 2010).

    You will find more information on elderberry in our Herb Library. We have been known to collect and dry the flowers in the summer to use in winter as a soothing tea when we suffer from a cough or a cold. Elderberry extract is also available commercially in several herbal remedy products such as Sambucol or Zand. You can learn about other herbal remedies for colds in our Guide to Colds, Coughs & the Flu.

    Can you share the recipe for the elderberry wine or not? sounds great? I have used elderberry extract for 7 years and have not had the flu at all! It really does help with upper respiratory and allergies etc. even in the summer. Its just great!

    I came down with a cold recently and it’s gone now except for chest congestion and a runny nose. I tried everything I could find to get rid of it online and nothing helped to loosen it even a little. I also bought an off brand of mucinex and it didn’t help whatsoever. Then my aunt gave me some mullein leaves and elderberry syrup and for the first time I was actually able to get rid of some of it! It’s amazing. Natural is not only better but sometimes it’s the only thing that works!

    I am convinced of the effectiveness of elderberry extract (liquid). I have a long history of colds lingering for up to three weeks, with bronchitis and/or sinus infections further complications. I’ve been taking elderberry at the first sign of a cold: two tablespoons twice a day. Today I’m on the third day of a cold and feel it’s almost gone. Day 1 was a sore throat. Day 2 was chest congestion. I slept most of Day 2 and awoke today with very few symptoms.

    I take elderberry syrup, and sometimes the capsule. Can’t tell which is better. They both work if taken with the first sneezes and runny nose. I love the taste of the syrup. I Also take andrographis, astralagus and echinacea. Why these remedies work, I haven’t a clue. But double-blind studies have been done on them. All I know is they have to be from a very reputable herb company or they may not be efficacious.
    I have stopped many a virus trying to make in-roads into my respiratory system. The trick is not to take these immune boosters unless you feel symptoms or have been severely stressed,i.e. lack of sleep several nights… Take everyday and the body will adjust to them being on board and they will no longer work as well.

    Back in the 40’s and 50’s my Father made Elderberry wine and jelly. If we felt a chill or cold coming on we children were put to bed and given a couple tablespoons of warm elderberry wine which gave us a nice good nights sleep and by morning were healed. Parents did same. Rather health family now I know why.

    Oft realisiert man gar nicht, dass man eine Grippe hat: In 80 Prozent der Fälle verläuft die Infektion mit Influenza unbemerkt oder nur wie eine leichte Erkältung. Jährlich sind nach Schätzungen der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) 10 bis 20 Prozent der Weltbevölkerung betroffen, aber die Mehrheit davon bekommt das nicht mit.

    Ist eine Grippe immer lebensgefährlich?

    Influenza kann lebensgefährlich sein, etwa im Rahmen einer Seuche durch einen neuartigen Virustyp, der besonders aggressiv ist. Das kommt aber nur sehr selten vor.

    Harmlose Erkältungskrankheiten, oft als "grippaler Infekt" bezeichnet, können ähnliche Symptome wie eine Grippe verursachen: Husten, eine erhöhte Körpertemperatur oder Kopfschmerzen können zum Beispiel auch hier auftreten. Diese von anderen Viren ausgelösten Infektionen unterscheiden sich von Influenza durch die Schwere des Verlaufs: Sie gehen nur selten mit Fieber einher und führen in der Regel nur zu einer kurzzeitigen Abgeschlagenheit, die lediglich etwas Schonung bedarf.

    Körperliche Schonung und Bettruhe sind wichtig, damit die Grippe schnell ausheilt.

    So wirken Neuraminidasehemmer

    Medikamente gegen Grippe

    Zur gezielten Behandlung der Grippe stehen antivirale – also gegen Viren wirkende – Stoffe zur Verfügung: Oseltamivir und Zanamivir hemmen die Neuraminidase, eines der Oberflächenmoleküle des Virus. Die Neuraminidase spielt unter anderem eine wichtige Rolle bei der Freisetzung der Viren von einer infizierten Zelle.

    Jährlich fällig: Die Grippeimpfung

    Es existieren wirksame Impfstoffe gegen die Grippe. Der Inhalt wird regelmäßig angepasst, damit er möglichst gut gegen die häufigsten aktuellen Virustypen der Saison schützt. Deshalb und weil die Wirksamkeit der Impfung nicht lange anhält, ist jährlich eine neue Impfung notwendig.

    Wegen des sich ständig verändernden Virus kann jedoch keine Impfung hundertprozentig schützen. Um Infektionen vorzubeugen ist es daher außerdem empfehlenswert, auf eine gute Händehygiene zu achten. Bei Erkältungs- und Grippeepidemien kann es sinnvoll sein, auf die Begrüßung per Handschlag zu verzichten, um einer möglichen Ansteckung vorzubeugen.
