Complications from Flu – an unnecessary evil!
Keywords: flu, complications
AbstractThe pharmacist plays a pivotal role in preventing flu complications, be it by offering flu vaccinations or by referring a patient to a general practitioner should flu symptoms linger for too long. The northern hemisphere suffered through an intense flu season this past winter. As of early March 2018, the number of US paediatric deaths associated with the disease surpassed 150, and the cumulative hospitalisation rate reached its highest level since 2010.1 Our aim is to learn from these experiences and ultimately reduce mortality.
