Dengue: Causes, Symptoms, Prevention

Dengue

Dengue fever is caused by mosquito bites. Dengue fever is most common in tropical or subtropical regions because mosquitoes reproduce easily in these areas. Countless cases of dengue fever are affected in India every year.

So far, there is no vaccine against dengue fever, but medical researchers are working hard to develop a reliable vaccine. The best way to escape dengue fever is to prevent mosquitoes from breeding in or around you.

Causes:

There are four types of known dengue virus transmitted from mosquito bites. When a person infected with dengue is bitten by a mosquito and then another person is bitten by an infected mosquito, the virus enters his/her body through the blood. Once you recover from dengue fever, you can be immune to a specific virus that has affected you, but you are still vulnerable to the other three viruses, which increase the risk of severe dengue fever.

Mosquitoes that cause the spread of dengue fever have been found near human habitats, and they reproduce rapidly under tropical conditions.

Young children or people who have never been infected with the dengue virus usually have milder symptoms than those who have been infected. However, there is always a risk of severe symptoms.

Symptom:

When you are infected with dengue fever, symptoms usually occur 4 to 7 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. The known symptoms of dengue fever may be as follows:

  • headache
  • fever
  • Vomiting
  • eye pain
  • Rash on the skin
  • nausea
  • Body pain
  • Muscle or joint pain

The above symptoms occur in the case of mild dengue fever, and patients usually recover within 7-14 days.

Although dengue fever can aggravate the disease and may even be fatal, the patient should be intensively monitored due to vascular leakage and decreased platelet counts in the blood. If left untreated, dengue hemorrhagic fever can lead to death. The symptoms of this condition are:

  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Vomiting
  • Bleeding gums
  • Blood in the stool or urine
  • Difficulty breathing
  • fatigue
  • Tired

If the patient has severe symptoms, it is recommended to go to the emergency room of the hospital as soon as possible.

Prevention

  • Prevent water stagnation

The stagnant water provides the best place for mosquitoes to reproduce and reproduce. Check if there is no water in your plants, garden, or tires

  • Best to stay indoors

If dengue fever is spread in your area, please avoid playing outdoors or taking unnecessary risks; until night, the mosquitoes that cause dengue fever are most active. Best to stay in a place with air conditioning

  • Wear full sleeves

Wear full-sleeve clothing to protect your skin from mosquito bites. Cover yourself with long sleeves, pants, and shoes

  • Use insect repellent

There are various mosquito repellents on the market. You can use them on clothes, at home, and even on your skin

  • Avoid going to areas prone to dengue fever

Don’t go to places where dengue fever is the rampant, poor condition or lack of hygiene

  • Avoid being bitten by mosquitoes

As there is currently no specific treatment, the best way to prevent dengue fever is to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes

  • Ensure clean

Check your surroundings regularly to ensure that there are no mosquitoes in or around your house

The doctors at AMRI Hospitals emphasize preventive techniques, all our hospitals are equipped with emergency services, and believe that there is no time to delay.

A Few Things to Check Before Hiring an Electrician

Hiring an Electrician

Many homeowners attempt to do home improvement projects themselves, and the results are often disappointing. However, trying to handle electrical work independently can lead to costly errors and injuries. Discover a few things to check before hiring an electrician to get the job done right and stay within the budget.

Proper Training

When looking for an electrician, the first thing to consider is whether they are properly trained. The electricians should attend a vocational school or other recognized institute to learn how to perform the work correctly. Discuss the training process to find the right team for the job.

Review Experience

Comparing electricians includes reviewing their relevant experience performing similar work. Homeowners should discuss the project scope with potential electricians and determine whether they have experience in that area. Also, ask for recommendations and referrals from previous satisfied customers.

Check Reviews

Once homeowners have a list of prospects, check online reviews to narrow down the possibilities based on customer experiences. Often, people discover more about an electrician or other service providers by reading reviews and talking to others. Also, discuss referrals with neighbors, co-workers, friends, and families to determine which services handled the work most efficiently.

Licensed and Insured

Verify your state’s requirement for license and insurance and then ensure the electrician is compliant to protect your most valuable asset. It is often tempting to hire an unlicensed or uninsured electrician to cut costs, but that often adds up to spending more money in the long run. Plus, you could be liable if an accident or injury occurs on your premises, adding even more to the costs.

Verify Credentials and Permits

The first step to verifying an electrician’s expertise is to inquire about licenses and insurance. The next step is to verify these credentials and permits to ensure they are valid and current. A quality electrician will immediately provide documentation for customers to verify.

Talk to Several Electricians

After comparing reviews and verifying credentials, consult with several electricians to find the right one for the project. While all of them might be qualified for the job, homeowners should find an electrician that understands their vision and wants to work with them every step of the way. Take notes during the interviews to review and determine the best candidate for the job.

Compare Costs

While qualifications are crucial to getting the job done correctly, homeowners must also stay within their budget to avoid financial stress associated with unexpected surprises. An electrician should provide a precise estimate and include everything to be done to complete the project for homeowners to plan for payment. The goal is to find a qualified electrician that provides all the services needed for the most competitive price. 

Look for Outstanding Customer Service

Finally, it helps to work with electricians dedicated to providing the highest level of customer service and that stand behind their work. Inquire about warranties and other guarantees to verify the project will be completed according to specifications. Then choose the electrician who communicates clearly and makes you feel comfortable about their skills.

Hiring an electrician is often critical to getting the job done right and avoiding additional costs related to injuries and errors. Use this checklist to find a qualified electrician that provides outstanding service within your budget.
