Brief: This chart covers the areas of influenza essential for healthcare professionals and patients to understand. Illustrations and text show how the virus spreads and areas of the body that are affected. Ways to prevent and help prevent the spread of influenza are included, as well as answers to three common patient questions-how to tell the difference between a cold and the flu, whether the stomach flu is the same as influenza, and if symptoms of the flu are different in children. The chart details special risk factors, complications, the importance of getting a flu shot, and what to do if you get the flu, stressing that antibiotics are not recommended for viral influenza.
