Colds And The Flu



SARS: A GUIDE TO PREVENTION Hot!

Servere Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) is a virulent pneumonia-like illness that made a sudden appearance in February 2003, originating in southern China. Air travel and global business have spread handfuls of cases throughout the world, and the disease, caused by a newly emerged coronavirus, has the potential to create a global pandemic. The disease does not respond to any current medications, and so far the mortality rate is approximately 6%. Yet SARS is just one of several emerging diseases that threaten the United States. Some others are West Nile emcephalitis, E. coli O157H7, cryptosporidiosis (crypto), coccidioidomycosis, vancomycin-resistant enterococcal infections (VRE), various influenza strains, and hantavirus, plus multidrug-resistant tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. It is essential for healthcare professionals and the public to work together to combat the spread of these emerging diseases.

    COLDS AND THE FLU

    Colds and the flu are very common, but not something to take too lightly. Back in 1918 a worldwide epidemic of the flu killed 21 million people. We discover that most over-the-counter medications may relieve some of a person's symptoms, but not cure the cold or flu; so for most colds and flu it's best to get lots of rest, take lots of fluids, and, yes, eat some homemade chicken soup. Then we learn that, today, designated doctors, called sentinels, track viruses' movements and watch for any new strains of the flu. Information is gathered at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, allowing doctors to predict which virus to expect in a coming year; then labs develop vaccines to fight the flu and each year flu shots help save the lives of many

    RESISTING THE FLU: HOW TO MINIMIZE YOUR RISK (SEASONAL VERSION)

    Every year it returns, and every year it costs employers billions of dollars in sick pay, lost sales and decreased productivity.

    We're all far too familiar with the spread of flu. But here's some good news. You can reduce infection rates in your workplace by training your employees to follow a few simple habits that stop them from spreading sickness to their coworkers--and help them avoid getting sick in the first place.

    Some of these habits are just common sense: wash your hands, don't use your coworker's telephone or computer keyboard, cover your coughs and sneezes. But how do you get people to remember and actually do these things, day after day?

    Video training is an effective way to get through to employees and change their behavior. And the program from Stanford, "Resisting the Flu" is designed to do just that. Your employees will respond to this documentary-style short film with its straight talk from Dr. Eric A. Weiss, Medical Director of Disaster Planning and Associate Professor, Stanford University School of Medicine.

    In plain terms, Dr. Weiss lays out a blueprint for keeping your employees healthy and for resisting infection by the influenza virus. His practical advice extends to taking care of sick family members in ways that protect the caregiver and stop the spread within employees' households. And if things take a turn for the worse, Dr. Weiss also describes clear danger signs that help viewers know the difference between symptoms that are typical X and those that require immediate medical help.

    Do your part to limit the spread of flu, and protect your business by training all your employees. Working together, we can all contribute to lessening the impact of this costly illness.
