Medical Minute - Influenza Part One
Dr. Beau Brouillette, CHRISTUS Cabrini Group Practice, Marksville Family Care Center discusses Influenza. For most of us, having the flu means suffering at home for a week or two, then pulling ourselves out of bed to get on with our lives as usual. But the flu can be serious, even deadly, particularly for anyone with a health condition like asthma, heart disease, diabetes, or a weakened immune system. Depending on the severity of the flu season, between 3, 000 and 49,000 people die from the flu each year.
