Introduction cont.: Although there are many relative viral strains to that of the swine flu, the specific organization of this virus has developed against our primary immunity (ability of our body to defend itself). Children and elder people are carrying immunity at a lower rate, whether increasing or decreasing, that makes them more susceptible to acquiring a viral illness like H1N1
This demonstration of the rapid development and concentration of H1N1 cases is ideal to developing an understanding for learning to address the placement, movement, and potency of the virus.
Center for Disease Control also states however that diarrhea and vomiting only happen sometimes. They also note that fever is not a guaranteed symptom of the flu for everyone. Some cases present fever as a symptom due to the present immunity of that person. Fever can be an act of recovery for the body that activates in particular situations that differ from person to person.
Center for Disease control, along with other organizations and institutions continue research to develop information within all possible situations of H1N1 flu exposure.
Some of the preemptive steps include having an informed faculty and staff, parents and volunteers, and the students themselves. Although this may take resources to address within education, the outcome of providing preventative knowledge is cost effective to continuing the education system throughout.
Transitional slide: Manipulative and simple resource that demonstrates connection for preparing students and teachers alike to develop an understanding to the importance and possible prevalence of H1N1 flu and other illnesses.
Many of these public areas, such as schools, are required to present this information efficiently within all age groups.
This picture demonstrates the difficulty and patience placed into the preventative measures of parents waiting with their children for vaccination. The immune system of each person can respond differently to the vaccine whether by rejecting it, developing from it, or even sometimes submitting to the weakened form of the H1N1 virus. Although vaccines are fluctuating within production and availability, access to the vaccine is still present as a preventative possibility.

H1N1 Virus: Connection<br />Considered to be a developed pandemic within it’s own right, Swine Flu (H1N1) is a specific for m of virus that develops through a series of symptoms that can develop simultaneously or separately within differing environments of immunity and exposure to the virus.<br />H1N1 Virus Cluster<br />Center for Disease Control (H1N1 images)<br />
H1N1 Virus (cont.)<br />There are a group of symptoms that develop with any type of flu. Here are the symptoms that have presented themselves in patients of Swine Flu:<br />Fever<br />Cough<br />Sore throat<br />Runny or stuffy nose<br />Body aches<br />Headache<br />Chills<br />Fatigue<br />Diarrhea and vomiting<br />
The H1N1 viral strain presents its highest potency within people whose immunity is weakened by their age or specific situations that may weaken their immune system such as pregnancy, heart diseases, and HIV.<br />Due to the development of H1N1 flu into a pandemic, the understanding of the virus is being developed at a continual rate as we attempt to quarantine and treat cases as efficiently as possible.<br />H1N1 Virus (cont.)<br />
The Swine Flu presents complications to attendance, prevention, and to the overall success of a classroom environment. Just like other illness issues, various preemptive steps must be accomplished to ensure the continued success of education.<br />Educational Issues<br />
Even steps such as what is demonstrated in this podcast (click here) from CDC (Center for Disease Control) upon research of H1N1 K-12 resources provides a tool that teachers may use to share the importance of this issue.<br />Educational Issues (Cont.)<br />
Solution Possibilities<br />Many public use areas may present preventative knowledge to help contain the spread of H1N1. Informative signs and presentations supply understanding of these prevention strategy, developing knowledge of the best strategies to avoid illness.<br />(Cough Sign)<br />
Solution Possibilities (Cont.)<br />There used to be debates surrounding the use of vaccines as to the overall effectiveness or certainty of the use to prevent illness and how vaccines work within the immune system. Although this may be true, vaccines can still provide an excellent preventative measure.<br />(Waiting Parents and Kids)<br />
