Acute Problems / Health Topic

H1N1 flu (swine flu) is a respiratory disease caused by type A influenza virus that regularly cause outbreaks of influenza in pigs. 

As with seasonal flu, the CDC believes H1N1 flu (swine flu) may be spread from person to person through coughing or sneezing or a person may become infected by touching something with the flu virus on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

Symptoms

The symptoms associated with H1N1 flu (swine flu) closely resemble those of regular human flu. They include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people with H1N1 flu (swine flu) have also reported runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. 

The lake county health department recommends influenza testing only for patients with curious illnesses that meet the following:

  • Fever above 37.8 degrees C (100 degrees F) and

  • Respiratory symptoms as cough, sore throat, etc.

 

Antiviral treatment is recommended for severally sick patients or patient with mild illness who have underlining conditions. However, treatment should be started with in 48 hours of symptoms onset.A currently antiviral prophylaxis is recommended for individuals with weak immune response. 

Disease Prevention

Preventive care includes examinations and screenings tailored to an individual's age, health, and family history. For example, a person with a family history of certain cancers or other diseases would be screened at an earlier age and more frequently than those with no family history. 

Smokings, obesity, alcohol consumption, infections, toxic agents, illicit use of drugs are all avoidable catalysts for future serious health problems. We are familiar with helping those affected to over come these issues. We have also created special programs for screening and prevention heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease. 

Immunizations and school/sport physicals

Your child's school physical may be one of the only times throughout the year he or she sees a doctor. Because of this, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests providers use a child's yearly school physical as an opportunity to build and add to his or her complete medical history. This can help ensure your child's progress and development are monitored and potential emerging problems are detected. 

If you haven't already scheduled appointments for your children's school physicals, now is the time to do it! 

School physicals will include a review of the patient's immunization record; child will receive any required immunizations during the visit. It is imperative that patients arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time for the physical. The child will meet with a nurse or physician assistant to complete a medical history, vision screening, height, weight, blood pressure checks, and receive important age-specific information prior to the appointment. 

At the time of visit your child will receive developmental screening, diabetic prevention discussion, screening for heart problems and sudden death syndrome, we also provide muscle and bones abnormalities tests. We also offer a weight loss program for overweight children. 

By your request we may bill your insurance. Please, check with your carrier if this is a covered service prior to the appointment. For self pay patients we offer affordable price of $55 plus $25 per any immunization for a child younger than 19 years old. 

Walk-ins are conducted by a certified medical provider and are offered during extended evening hours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturday mornings.
