Nice videos

Crit-IC says:

Very informative video, thanks!
I think you didn't mention isolation when you admit the patient. In my country it's policy to isolate the patient in both respiratory and contact isolation, when a patient is suspected of influenza. Is that the same for you?

David says:

excellent clinically relevant review of a current topic of concern, thank you!

I don't get cold or flu
I kill the virus and develop antibodies in the first day
