What would it mean to you know what swine flu tactics are most effective in preventing and treating the virus?

Wouldn’t you like to know what to do to keep yourself from getting sick?

Since there is no vaccine available to provide protection against the swine flu outbreak, it’s extremely necessary to know everyday precautions you can take to protect yourself against getting any swine flu symptoms.

Here are a few examples of swine flu tactics you can use to start protecting your health.

Have you ever head the saying… “Everything I learned, I learned in kindergarten?”  This statement has never been truer than when discussing how to keep yourself virus-free.

Let me show you why…

·    Anytime you cough or sneeze, be courteous enough to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or use the inside of your arm to shield others from germs.

·    Use soap and water each time you wash your hands and rub vigorously for at least 20 seconds.  And more importantly, wash your hands after you sneeze or cough.

·    Just for the record, alcohol-based sanitizer are extremely effective for keeping risk of infection down.  If you find that soap and water isn’t available, alcohol-based disposable hand wipes or gel sanitizers can be used.  The kicker is to rub the gel into your hands until it is dry.

·    Are you aware that germs spread quickly through the eyes, nose and mouth?  Avoid touching them to prevent catching the virus.

·    If someone you know is sick, avoid close contact.

·    If you happen to be the one who is sick, stay home for at least 7 days once your symptoms begin or at least until you have been symptom free for 24 hours.  This will keep you from infecting others and spreading the virus even further.

·    Make sure you follow any and all public advice when it comes to school closings or avoiding crowds all together.

·    Prepare yourself in the event you get sick and are forced to stay home for at least week.  For example, get yourself a supply of over-the-counter medicines, tissues, and alcohol-based sanitizers.  Remember, swine flu is extremely contagious.

·    Beware of emergency warning signs that will warrant urgent medical attention.  These include:  difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; pain or pressure in your chest or stomach; feeling dizzy all of a sudden; confusion; severe or persistent vomiting; you have flu-like symptoms that seem to improve but then return with a high fever and even worse cough.

·    If you are infected with the virus, the best way to prevent serious flu complication is to take CDC recommended prescription drugs called oseltamivir or zanamivir.   The may make you feel better, a lot quicker than over-the-counter medicines.

Each and every one of these swine flu tactics work marvelously when put into practice.  If you want to keep yourself healthy and prevent the spread of the virus, you’ll start today watching for the warning signs and remembering all the things you learned in kindergarten!
