Mystery Diagnosis Simone Hardeman Azayvia Farrar Eric Pullen Javon Caldwell H1N1 OR Swine Flu Difficulties To keep it from spreading it would be extremely hard beacuse H1N1 is airborne and spread through coughing and sneezing. Diagnosis is hard because swine flu can be precieved as the regular flu or the common cold. There is one test to determine if you have swin and that is through swabbing your nose. Hepitatis B
~fever, body aches, fatigue Pneumococcal meningitis
~fever, aches, fatigue, stiff neck, Medications Tamiflu (pill)- which is used for patients who have been symptamic for no more than 2 days and have acute H1N1. (Prevention for replication) Relenza (inhalation)- used for patients same as above only for ages 7 and above For patients with sever H1N1 are usually in the hospital and are treated with antiviral doses called oseltamivir. Controversy would be that when take the vaccine you get the flu. Actually what is going on is your body building up immunity to the virus so you dont happen to catch it.
Tiny droplets can be inhaled and land on door handles, stair rails, and other equipment such as remote controls, telephones and keyboards, which are then passed from hand to mouth.
An infected person can pass it on for up to five days. The virus can live for up to a day on hard surfaces and 20 minutes on soft surfaces. The virus is airborne like a regular cough or cold. Distinguishes We will not use antibiotics because H1N1 is a viral infection First line of defense: keeps pathogens out of the body through skin, mucus, sweat, and tears. Second line of defense: when white blood cells detect pathogen and fight infection by fever. Impact of a compromised immune system means that you are more likely to catch the infection. Especially babies, senior citizens, and people with AIDS. Our medicine would be vaccaination which builds up antibodies to fight virus'. Vaccination- makes antibodies which create immunity to the infectious disease Roles antibodies destroy bacteria and viruses T-cells attack and kill infected cells B-cells lable invaders for later destruction. The body recogonizes there is an infection when the body identifies organisms that are not their own or unhealthy. Passive immunity: where a peron's cells dont produce the antibodies
Active immunity: immunity that develops agter a primary immune respose As for our prognosis; by adding up the number of confirmed deaths (429, according to the latest World Health Organization figures) and dividing it by the number of confirmed cases (the WHO says it’s 94,512), the simple answer is that the fatality rate is just below 0.5%. So Mr. Thomas is much more than likely to be alright.

So Mr. Thomas is much more than likely to be alright. Just like most pathogens, the typical technique to surviving in the body is by replicating the cell, or tissue it is trying to invade so it wont be killed on sight. Once in a safe area the pathogen reproduces a-sexually and begins its assault in the body. Although you may have previously heard it referred to as the swine flu, you cannot get infected with H1N1 by eating pork. In fact, the H1N1 virus is not spread by food, nor through your town's drinking water. The four key things to do that will help in preventing you from getting the H1N1 Flu or Swine Flu:

1. Wash Your Hands
2. Cover Your Cough
3. Don't Touch Your Face
4. Stay Away from People Who are Sick
(try to make sure the people you are around the most are vaccinated)
Virus: nonliving things Bacteria: living things Bacteria & Virus': need host cells Protist: unicellular Fungi: multicellular Protist & Fungi: kingdoms THE END
