Treatment is largely supportive and consists of bedrest, increased fluid consumption, cough suppressants, and antipyretics and analgesics (eg, acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for fever and myalgias.
Severe cases may require intravenous hydration and other supportive measures. Antiviral agents may also be considered for treatment or prophylaxis .
Influenza complications include:
Worsening of chronic conditions, such as heart disease and asthma
Neurological signs and symptoms, ranging from confusion to seizures
Severe cases of swine flu can be fatal. Most fatal cases occur in those with underlying medical conditions .
The majority of people with swine flu recover and can anticipate a normal life expectancy...
