((FOR MOST OF US, FLU SEASON IS AT LEAST A MONTH AWAY. BUT ALREADY A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED... BECAUSE THEY WON'T BE PROTECTED BY A VACCINE. SO THIS YEAR, THE BIGGEST DEFENSE AGAINST THE FLU IS TO PRACTICE GOOD HYGEINE... AND TO IDENTIFY AND ISOLATE PEOPLE INFECTED WITH INFLUENZA VIRUS.

(SOT-Dr. Greg Yapalater/)

"knowing the diagnosis we know what complications to look for in that illness. for instance, pneumonia is a very common complication."
OFFICE-BASED INFLUENZA TESTS CAN HELP. HERE'S HOW THEY WORK:
INFLUENZA VIRUS ENTERS THE NOSE, MOUTH OR EYES. THEN THE VIRUS RELEASES ITS CONTENTS INTO THE BODY. MOST TESTS USE ANTIBODIES TO DETECT THE PRESENCE OF ONE OF THESE VIRAL PROTEINS.
THIS TEST IS CALLED QUICKVUE. THE DOCTOR USES A Q-TIP LIKE INSTRUMENT TO SWAB THE INSIDE OF A PATIENT'S NOSE. HE THEN PLACES IT IN A SMALL TEST TUBE, ADDS THE TEST FLUID, AND STIRS IT ALL TOGETHER. AFTER THAT, HE PLACES A TEST STRIP IN THE TUBE AND WAITS 10 MINUTES.

(nats-clock beeping)

WHEN TIME IS UP, THE DOCTOR EXAMINES THE STRIP. ONE BLUE LINE IS NEGATIVE. A BLUE AND A PINK -- LIKE THIS -- IS POSITIVE FOR INFLUENZA. IT WORKS MUCH LIKE A HOME PREGNANCY TEST.

(sot-Dr. Greg Yapalater/?)

"once you've identified the flu, then one can take the appropriate measures for that individual, for the classroom, for the members of the family."

(STANDUP: Dr. David Marks/CBS NEWS)

MAKING A DIAGNOSIS IS ALSO IMPORTANT BECAUSE THERE ARE MEDICATIONS THAT CAN TREAT THE FLU. BUT THOSE MEDICATIONS ONLY WORK IF THEY ARE TAKEN WITHIN THE FIRST DAY OR TWO OF GETTING SYMPTOMS.

(nats)

MEDICATIONS LIKE TAMIFLU, RIMANTADINE AND TAMIFLU CAN REDUCE BOTH THE SEVERITY... AND LENGTH OF FLU SYMPTOMS.

(sot-Dr. Greg Yapalater/)

so the symptoms, which would last typically 5, 7 10 even 12 days with influenza would be shortened to as early as 2 to 3 or 4 days.
THAT SHOULD PROVIDE SOME COMFORT TO THOSE WHO WON'T GET A FLU SHOT THIS YEAR. DOCTOR DAVID MARKS, CBS NEWS.))
