At present business people are exploiting the swine flu situation.
  • Major business areas are 'Swine Flu Mask'. In Bangalore a Rs. 3 mask is selling for Rs 15 to 20. N95 mask is selling for Rs. 750 also.
  • Local mask market: Some mask looks a a funnel or beak on the face of the people and it also cost high.
  • Eucalyptus oil: Its out of stock in most of the medical shops at least in Bangalore.
  • Now the new trend going to come is Swine Flu Party or H1N1 Party.
Good news for the party fever guys. I am pretty sure that health conscious society will not going to attend this kind of parties.

Swine Flu : Home Care Guidance

Swine Flu : Home Care Guidance

You will probably be sick for several days with fever and respiratory symptoms.
Take Medications as Prescribed:

* Take all of the antiviral medication as directed.
* Continue to cover your cough and wash your hands often, even when taking antiviral medications, to prevent spreading influenza to others.
* Call the office if you (or your child) experience any side effects; i.e. nausea, vomiting, rash, or unusual behavior.
* Take medications for symptom relief as needed for fever and pain such as acetaminophen (Tylenol®) and ibuprofen (Advil®, Motrin®, Nuprin ®), and cough medicine. These medicines do not need to be taken regularly if your symptoms improve.
* Do not give aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) or products that contain aspirin (e.g. bismuth subsalicylate – Pepto Bismol) to children or teenagers 18 years old or younger.
* Children younger than 4 years of age should not be given over-the-counter cold medications without first speaking with a health care provider.



Seek Emergency Care If your child experiences any of the following:

* Fast breathing or trouble breathing
* Bluish or gray skin color
* Not drinking enough fluids
* Severe or persistent vomiting
* Not waking up or not interacting
* Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
* Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough

In adults, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

* Difficulty 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






Follow These Home Care Recommendations:

* Stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine.)
* Keep away from others as much as possible. This is to keep from making others sick.
* Drink clear fluids (such as water, broth, sports drinks, electrolyte beverages for infants) to keep from being dehydrated.
* Dishes can be done in dishwasher or with hot soapy water.
* Throw away tissues and other disposable items used by the sick person in the trash. Wash your hands after touching used tissues and similar waste.
* Have everyone in the household wash hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Alcohol-based hand cleaners* are also effective.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.

Wash hands to avoid swine flu

WHO says us to wash our hands properly to avoid swine flu. So wash your hands frequently like the 'Healthy Hindustan' ad from Lifebuoy soap(about Lifebuoy Soap: In 1894, William Hesketh Lever launched Lifebuoy in the UK as the Royal Disinfectant Soap.)



Clean hands protect against H1N1 or Swine Flu. Keeping our hands clean is one of the most important things we can do to keep from getting sick and from spreading germs to others.

  • Clean your hands regularly.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, and dry them thoroughly.
  • Use alcohol-based hand rub if you don’t have immediate access to soap and water.

Wash your hands properly

* Keeping our hands clean is one of the most important things we can do to keep from getting sick and from spreading germs to others.
* It is best to wash hands with soap and clean running water for 20 seconds
* If soap and clean water are not available, use an alcohol-based product to clean your hands

* Alcohol-based handrubs significantly reduce the number of germs on skin and are fast acting
* When using an alcohol-based hand rub, apply the product to the palm of one hand and rub hands together. Rub the product over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry

Swine Flu H1N1 World Map

Swine Flu H1N1 is spreading all over the world and the pace will be very high in the highly populated countries like India and China. Indian Government is acting very quickly to make the pandemic under control.

There are lot of questions arising from everywhere 'How to protect my self from Swine Flu / H1Ni'.

Following are some guidelines WHO recommends to prevent Swine Flu

For individuals who are well:
Maintain distance of at least 1 metre from any individual with influenza-like symptoms
• refrain from touching mouth and nose
• perform hand hygiene frequently, by washing with soap and water or using an alcoholbased handrub , especially if touching the mouth and nose and surfaces that are potentially contaminated
• reduce as much as possible the time spent in close contact with people who might be ill
• reduce as much as possible the time spent in crowded settings
• improve airflow in your living space by opening windows as much as possible.

Number of Laboratory cases reported to WHO

For individuals with influenza-like symptoms:
• stay at home if you feel unwell and follow the local public health recommendations
• keep distance from well individuals as much as possible (at least 1 metre)
• cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, with tissues or other suitable
materials, to contain respiratory secretions. Dispose of the material immediately after use
or wash it. Clean hands immediately after contact with respiratory secretions!
• improve airflow in your living space by opening windows as much as possible.


Geographic Spread of Swine Flu / H1N


If masks are worn, proper use and disposal is essential to ensure they are potentially
effective and to avoid any increase in risk of transmission associated with the incorrect
use of masks. The following information on correct use of masks derives from the practices in health-care settings:

• place mask carefully to cover mouth and nose and tie securely to minimise any gaps
between the face and the mask
• while in use, avoid touching the mask - whenever you touch a used mask, for example when removing or washing, clean hands by washing with soap and water or using an alcohol-based handrub
• replace masks with a new clean, dry mask as soon as they become damp/humid
• do not re-use single-use masks
- discard single-use masks after each use and dispose of them immediately upon
removing.

How to wear a mask ? See at N95 mask : No Stock in Bangalore

Although some alternative barriers to standard medical masks are frequently used (e.g. cloth
mask, scarf, paper masks, rags tied over the nose and mouth), there is insufficient information available on their effectiveness. If such alternative barriers are used, they should only be used once or, in the case of cloth masks, should be cleaned thoroughly between each use (i.e. wash with normal household detergent at normal temperature). They should be removed immediately after caring for the ill. Hands should be washed immediately after removal of the mask.
