H1N1 (Swine Flu) and Children with Special Health Care Needs Novel H1N1 flu is a new and very different influenza virus that is spreading worldwide among people. Influenza is unpredictable, but scientists believe that the new H1N1 virus will cause illness, hospital stays and deaths in the United States over the coming months. Symptoms of seasonal flu and novel H1N1 flu include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people also may have vomiting and diarrhea. Young children are less likely to have typical influenza symptoms (e.g., fever and cough) and infants may present to medical care staff with fever and lethargy, and may not have cough or other respiratory symptoms or signs. If you suspect your child has influenza, call your doctor. Antiviral medication, if taken soon after infection, can shorten the illness. • Aspirin or aspirin-containing products (e.g. bismuth subsalicylate – Pepto Bismol) should not be given to any child with a confirmed or suspected case of H1N1 due to the risk of Reye’s syndrome. For relief of fever, other anti-fever medications such as acetaminophen or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are recommended. • Children younger than 4 years of age should not be given over-the-counter cold medications without first speaking with a healthcare provider. Children with Developmental Disabilities and Chronic Medical Conditions Children at higher risk for complications from influenza infection include: • infants less than 6 months All children with: • immune suppression

Anthrax‐Flu Comparison What causes colds and the flu? Hundreds of different viruses cause colds. Some of the major groups are rhinoviruses, coronaviruses, parainfluenza viruses, respiratory syncytial virus, and enteroviruses. There are two major strains of virus that cause the flu—strain A and strain B. There are many subtypes of these strains and they change from year to year. How common are the colds and flu? Colds are very common, particularly in children less than 5. About half of the 16 million children in the US who are less than 5 years old get two or more colds a year. Flu is also common. About 42 million persons a year are infected with the flu and about 25 million actually get sick. Of the 25 million sick persons, 10 million go to their doctor. On average, 20 to 40 thousand persons a year die of the flu. The vast majority of people who die of the flu are over age 65. How about anthrax? What causes it? Anthrax is caused by a bacteria not a virus. The bacteria itself is a common type of bacteria which occurs naturally in the environment in some parts of the US like southwest Texas. The anthrax bacteria can be treated with antibiotics. An unusual quality that makes anthrax different from many bacteria is its ability to form a "spore." When anthrax does not have enough food or water to reproduce, it makes a wall or shell to protect itself and goes into a "resting" state. This is called a spore. The spore remains in this resting state until it has...
Swine influenza is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza viruses and has a major economic impact on the swine industry in the United States. Flu outbreaks in pigs are common, especially during winter months. Swine flu can result in high rates of illness in herds. Q How does swine flu spread among pigs? A Swine flu viruses are thought to spread mostly First, wash your hands frequently after exposure to animals and avoid contact with ill appearing animals. If you or your family becomes ill with flu-like symptoms, let your doctor know if you have been around pigs that could have the flu. A nose or throat swab is needed to determine if you might be infected with a swine flu virus. Signs of swine flu in pigs may include: l coughing (“barking”) l discharge from the nose l sneezing l breathing difficulties l going off feed n igh fevers in infected pigs are common, and can H result in reduced fertility or elevated abortion rates among sows. through close contact among pigs and possibly from contaminated objects moving between infected and uninfected pigs. Herds with continuous swine flu infections and herds that are vaccinated against swine flu might have sporadic disease, or may show only mild or no signs of infection. Q Can swine flu infections be prevented in pigs? A Swine flu infections can be potentially prevented by: n accinating herds V n sing good biosecurity measures U n ncouraging good hygiene practices E among workers n sing proper ventilation systems U n tudies have shown that 30% to 50% of S commercial U.S. swine have been infected with swine flu. Q What about flu vaccines for pigs? A Flu vaccines for pigs can help, but are not 100% n igs most commonly get infected with flu viruses P from other pigs (swine flu), but also can get infected with flu viruses from birds (avian flu), and from people (human flu).

Testing for Prostate Cancer “Should I be tested? Is it the right choice for me?” Prostate cancer affects many men. There are tests to find it early. There may be benefits and risks with testing. Research has not yet proven that the benefits of testing outweigh the risks. This booklet will help you decide if you want to be tested for prostate cancer. Who this booklet is for: This booklet is to help men who do NOT have any symptoms decide if they want to be tested. 1 Is testing the right choice for me? Right now you might not know if you want to be tested. After reading this booklet, we hope that you will be able to talk with your doctor and tell him how you feel about testing. Here we will talk more about prostate cancer testing and the possible benefits and risks of testing. Does the American Cancer Society say that all men should be tested for prostate cancer? No, we do not for these reasons: • The research is not clear. Some research shows that finding prostate cancer early will stop some men from dying from the disease. Other research does not show this. • All prostate cancers are not the same. Many prostate cancers grow slowly. These do not cause any harm. Some prostate cancers grow fast. They spread to other parts of the body. Here they cause problems and can even cause death. The tests we have today often cannot tell us which prostate cancers will cause harm and which ones will not. Therefore, men with slow-growing cancers might get treatment that they do not need.
