Topic: Health & Wellness / H1N1 Preparedness

Over the past few weeks, experts have begun to search for ways to overcome the weaknesses in the response to the outbreak of h1n1. These weaknesses include poor communication, coping with new strains of the flu, understanding the symptoms, and proper treatment. The CDC has discovered that rapid tests used by hospitals to determine if a patient has the h1n1 are proving to fail over half the time in detecting h1n1. They have since begun to research rapid tests with higher sensitivity. There have also been inadequacies with the protocols and equipment used to protect healthcare workers from acquiring the virus while on the job.
