Hello doctor, My cousin was suffering from different disease. I would like explain that When she ate food or something, she was facing breathe shorten until she got burp. When she got burp, she feels normally. We can't understand her problem. She was suffering with this problem more at afternoon times and night times when she was going to sleep. Hope you understand problem and I hope I may get a solution.
Hi viewers, we are again discussing one important medical topic today, via this medium called Lybrate, which allows you to have text, audio and video consultation to your doctor at any time. So my Lybrate viewers must have seen my earlier videos, this is just to educate all the view was about certain common medical conditions. Last time we talked about the brain stroke, the vitamin D deficiency, typhoid now today as this is December, January going on I would discuss something about Swine Flu. Now we have come across with multiple cases in common flu or influenza type of illness and sometimes we have to suspect that certain symptoms of patients, they may indicate that it could be something serious infection by the name swine flu. Now, why the name swine flu because it’s found firstly in swine or pigs, so it has an around 100 years story of detection of such type of virus into pigs and recently a lot of studies had happened. We have various trends of swine flu detected nowadays H1N1 being the commonest and there are certain mutation and genetic changes which happens in this virus itself. We have now H1N2, H2N1, H3N1, H3N2 and H2N3 like that, so we need to understand that virus is changing its properties and its avatar and causing this kind of illness which is mainly restricted to the respiratory tract and causing severe respiratory failure, sometimes even that also. So that is how we are worried about this particular viral disease. So how we should suspect like it is not the normal flu or this is a swine flu it is very difficult yes it is very difficult because the symptoms almost mimic in the same way well there are certain population like diabetes, patient having HIV, patient who has undergone some kind of chemotherapy shots, patient who have got organ transplant even the suppressant in those cases most of the few cases that turn into little resistance flow and we have to suspect them that it could be Swine Flu, also and here we have to investigate this properly and do some immediate action to start some antiviral medication and protect the further complications of swine flu. There is another way how we can prevent is that whenever we have a cough, we should hold our mouth and allow that to a specified area rather than spreading them across. We see that flu and another kind of variations of flu they happen here in India somewhere in cold season the reason or 3-4. The first is that we don't get full sunlight, so Vitamin D generation which is happening which is even though protecting is less, our mucous membrane in cold season they get dry so we don't have enough mucus which protects naturally against the viruses and invaders. We ourselves confine to places because we don't go out because of cold weather so we have our own reasons to stay at home and so spread to other family members. So these are few reasons why we actually get flu in cold season. Therefore, it is cold has attached to it, we now we get high fever if it is 103 and above we should suspect about swine flu and get it checked by your family physician. There is a test called as PCR and that PCR, rare time PCR is the positive indicator and it has three stage which should show activity or presence of the virus particles into the sample. So sample collection also processes into this. We have developed certain vaccines in protecting the individual, we have two types of vaccines for this, this is just for sake of showing you that we have for junior also like that one who is less than 8 years old we have .25 and for adults we have .5, the same vaccine which is in the double dose like .5 ml is the adult dose. This is how we protect the individual by giving this vaccination and the protection time is 1 year. So I recommend that when you want to travel outside or you may have some active patient who is under some treatment or he is having some flu and some other symptoms, you can vaccinate yourself or you have an active case in your family you can vaccinate yourself to protect you. This is one disease which has a very well documented and very well presented vaccination available and we should avoid self-complication of swine flu and deaths happening because of this ever-changing, challenging virus the Swine Flu virus, thank you now you can connect me whenever you want by searching my name Vishwas Madhav Thakur on Lybrate platform and get more information regarding this, Thank you.
