Swine Flu (H1N1)– A special form of the virus, which through long mutations took forms that can infect humans. The disease has claimed many lives throughout the world, because at the time of its occurrence and distribution it has not been studied. Until the first human cases of swine flu in Mexico, swine flu is not dangerous for humans and therefore not investigated in detail.
Constant mutation of swine flu do not allow scientists and doctors to even predict the time and location of the next epidemic. Throughout the world, not so long ago adopted strict measures to prevent the spread of the virus, which has come to us this time from China. In their symptoms of swine flu does not differ from other types of flu, in particular, from the most ordinary and familiar to us. However, remember that the development and course of this kind of flu is much more dangerous to human life. The virus is spread, usually by airborne droplets. Vaccine, which is able to completely cure the infected by the virus H1N1, currently does not exist.
Uses a comprehensive treatment, which acts depending on how much a person is infected and how proceeds of swine flu. Disappointing statistics show that 1,000 people are infected with this type of virus in 70 cases was reported death. Influenza is a critical exponent. In order to protect itself as it is worth to take measures to prevent swine flu, not only the people's means, but the medical abortion regimen. Hotbed of swine flu could be any city in any country, so do not forget about the danger of being a victim of ill swine flu.
Treatment for Swine Flu

These methods are fairly well known to all of us, as have had a disease like flu in varying degrees of severity, ever everyone. Risk of swine flu has been proved by hundreds of scientists and doctors around the world, however, the treatment of H1N1 is still not one hundred percent effective.
First of all, sick or suspected of infection should be as isolated from society by putting in a separate room. All personal care products, bedding and utensils should also be provided for each patient. To lower the temperature of the body, which in the early hours of the disease can already reach critical marks used drugs containing acetaminophen. If the critical temperature is reached, the mark is used intramuscular injection of dipyrone with diphenhydramine. This injection will have 15 minutes after the injection to reduce the temperature, if not to the optimal, up to an acceptable point. As an antiviral drug used drugs such as Tamiflu (this drug has proved its effectiveness to other drugs containing interferon), Arbidol, Laferobion, Laferon and others. If Tamiflu is not represented in the region, then it is recommended to use Zanamivir (Relenza). These drugs do not guarantee
t instant recovery, but today they are most effective in treating the virus H1N1.
Be sure to ask your doctor, do not practice self-treatment, it can lead to negative consequences and even death. Remember, the treatment of influenza virus required, as it may cause problems to other vital organs.

Certainly, healthy sleep, compliance with all hygiene and healthy lifestyle always bear fruit, however, we should not forget that during the epidemic just need to take stimulants. These drugs include all drugs that contain interferon, but first and foremost, Tamiflu (a drug used for the direct treatment of the disease), Laferon Laferobion, Arbidol (a drug often prescribed, and has a positive effect on the application, although its efficacy as a preventive drugs against H1N1 is not proven WHO). The dosage of the drug is given in a few times smaller than the direct treatment, but their reception is considered obligatory in combination prevention.

An important symptom of swine flu is a lung and bronchus significantly. Because of the enhanced expression of a number of factors are multiple lesions of the alveoli.
