As the weather gets colder, we get closer and closer to flu season. Symptoms like coughing and chills will constantly surround us. But how can you avoid or rapidly battle influenza (“the flu”) altogether? After all, some influenza strain symptoms can be sneaky, making it harder to diagnose and start medication. Well, good news is here; new technology can now speed up diagnosis and provide the proper treatment quicker!
Traditionally, patients who experience symptoms of the flu (or, just don’t feel well) schedule a doctor’s appointment and make the drive across town to be diagnosed. The doctor sees the patient, and then reacts to the situation — and that usually involves giving them medicine. Then, the doctor moves on to the next patient while hoping that her previous will fully heal. This happens every single day, every single year, across the globe.
