The flu, also referred to as influenza or “the grippe,” is an acute, highly contagious viral respiratory infection. It typically presents in epidemics beginning in late fall and lasting through early spring. Following a 48-hour incubation period, symptoms usually include sudden onset of fever, chills, headache, myalgia, cough, sore throat, and sometimes nausea. Patients with chronic pulmonary disease or cardiac insufficiency are more likely to develop severe symptoms. Hemorrhagic bronchitis, encephalitis, myocarditis, and viral or mixed viral-bacterial pneumonia are possible complications, although for most patients the disease is self-limiting and resolves without complications in two to seven days.
