Symptoms of SARS

With the onset of cold weather almost everyone is faced with colds.Each year, experts make unfavorable forecasts for the coming wave of influenza and acute respiratory infections.Epidemic lasts nearly two months, during which time many have time to recover.Symptoms of SARS and the flu are similar to symptoms of other diseases, so time is not always possible to identify the presence of disease.In this review, you will learn the methods of determining the virus infection ways and stages of development of an infection in the human body.

What are the symptoms and signs of SARS

is important to note that the symptoms of SARS in adults and children are the same, no difference between them is not, however, can vary the degree of symptoms, depending on the operation of the human immune system.respiratory tract infection is diagnosed based on the general state of the organism.The doctor asks the patient about all of the symptoms of SARS, examines, on the basis of this concludes the presence or absence of di

sease.If the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment begins immediately.Read about this in the book will OE Komarovsky about this disease.

incubation period

is important to detect the presence of microbes in the human body, which then causes the disease in advance.There is a difference between the common cold and symptoms of SARS, for example, the active development of the infection.Respiratory Diseases at the first stage occur without any symptoms, the infection develops during this period, and the microbes actively proliferate.This time is called the incubation period of SARS in children or adults.

It begins on the day when a healthy person in contact with the patient and the infection occurred, however, displays no infection is observed.The incubation period ends when the first symptoms of SARS.Every body is different ability to hold the disease, so the period after infection before the first signs of all different.On average, it can take from a few hours to two weeks.The disease also occurs in all different ways, it will depend on the methods of treatment, the effectiveness of selected drugs, a way of life of the patient.

first signs

viral infection in a child and an adult begins with a high fever.Against the background of general malaise can be seen a sharp uplift its performance to 38-39 ° C.The elevated temperature is maintained up to several days, sometimes coming down in the morning, and then amplifying the evening.In addition, there may be pain and pain in the eyes, shivering, body aches, weakness in the presence of an organism acute respiratory infection.

first symptoms of SARS:

  • sharp deterioration in general well-being;
  • chills;
  • trembling;
  • runny nose;
  • sore throat;
  • cough;
  • excessive sweating;
  • drowsiness;
  • anorexia.

What keeps the temperature at a SARS

Fever with respiratory infections is a sign that the body fights disease.White blood cells in human blood is actively destroying the alien virus.Patients useful to know what time should stay elevated body temperature, so as not to worry once again and protect yourself from unnecessary medication use: normally it is kept for two to five days.During this time, the right amount of produced antibodies that fight disease.If the temperature is bothering the patient for longer than 5 days, then the infection has a complex shape.

How is SARS without

temperature Sometimes SARS symptoms appear without raising body temperature.This kind of disease is dangerous because the infected continues to go to school or work, actively spreading SARS pathogens among healthy people.For this method of disease for several reasons:

  1. First of all it is worth noting that this is manifested mild form of the disease (rotavirus).
  2. In some cases, it is indicative of the inability of the body to fight the virus (weakened immune system).

Features of acute respiratory viral infections

Viral diseases occur in lesions of the airway epithelium.Besides the typical symptoms, the disease may be accompanied by watery eyes, symptoms of poisoning organism.This is a dangerous problem, and primarily due to complications that develop with the untimely or incorrect treatment.Among them are bronchitis, pneumonia, tracheitis.SARS is diagnosed by serological and virological tests.According to the severity distinguish mild, moderate and severe forms of the disease.

are the following respiratory infections, each of which has its own characteristics:

  • rotavirus;
  • flu;
  • parainfluenza;
  • rhinovirus;
  • adenovirus;
  • respiratory syncytial;
  • coronavirus.


main symptoms of SARS in children and adults is not particularly distinguished, but sometimes ill continue to go to work (in kindergarten, school), counting on the fact that the disease itself will take place.Do not ignore the infection, if the observed temperature up to 40, especially if antipyretic drugs do not have the desired effect.In addition, adults with the disease may experience brain fog, lack of oxygen, swelling, rash on the body.With timely treatment to the doctor, the treatment takes about a week and it is possible to avoid re-infection or serious complications.

Any viral disease may at any time move to a more serious, such as:

  • bronchitis;
  • sinusitis;
  • sinusitis;
  • otitis media;
  • meningitis;
  • sinusitis;
  • irregular heartbeat;
  • neuritis.


According to statistics, the child's body in comparison with adults more susceptible to viral illnesses (especially from three to twelve years).SARS appears often in children under one year, such as artificial feeding when the body defense is weakened.Kids should be especially protected against viruses (limit contacts with strangers, do not go to public places in the midst of an epidemic, to temper the child).SARS in infants is very difficult to treat, so it is best to avoid infection.

Table differences flu symptoms and SARS in 2016

Comparison of symptoms of influenza and SARS
Signs Influenza SARS
Fever to 40 degrees 37-38 degrees
cough, sore throat, runny nose typically typically
fatigue, body aches typically rare, is not expressed
Chills typically in severe forms

Video of acute respiratory diseases

SARS in winter is the most common form of the disease, which is transmitted by airborne droplets from infected to healthy people.The incubation period of the disease and the process depends on the individual characteristics of the organism.For more information about this illness you learn after watching the video presented below.
