Washington: A recent study has revealed that individuals with mild H1N1 infection may go undetected using standard diagnostic criteria.The study has, therefore, concluded that coughing or other respiratory symptoms are more accurate in determining influenza infection than presence of a fever.
"Our study found that fever is not reliable for case definition, even though it has been regarded as a key factor in determining influenza infection," Park said."We are aware of other studies that show fever present in as few as 31 percent of confirmed cases of influenza. We found that the most sensitive indicator was cough.Park added that that "screening should take any kind of respiratory manifestation into account."The findings were published in American Journal of Infection Control, the official publication of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, (APIC).
