Clinical decision guideline aims to streamline flu testing decisions
from MD Magazine
When a patient appears in the emergency room with suspected influenza, timely treatment can be the difference between life and death. However, it's not always easy to know with patients actually are infected with the flu, and which merely have flu-like symptoms. A new study hopes to help solve that problem. A nationwide team of investigators has developed a new clinical decision guideline that gives emergency department physicians a simple method to determine whether or not a potential flu case warrants testing.
