Yes, it is. So is intense headache, very high fever; some people also experience a little nausea. The symptoms are much like flu symptoms except that they are much worse.

Are Dengue Fever and Yellow Fever the same and if not what is the difference?

They are not the same. They are caused by different mosquito-borne flavivirus organisms; an effective vaccine has been developed for the yellow fever virus, but not for the dengue virus. While yellow fever can be prevented, there is no cure for either disease once contracted. While extremely mild cases of either disease may present only fever and headache symptoms similar to influenza, in most cases the two diseases have different symptoms and different effects on the body. In addition to fever and headache, dengue fever typically begins with a bright red rash along with severe muscle and joint pain which cause it to be known as "break-bone fever"; vomiting and diarrhea are also typical. There is a dramatic decrease of platelets and white blood cells along with internal bleeding, similar to end-stage liver disease; the victim may lapse into shock. In addition to fever and headache, yellow fever typically begins with extreme fatigue and chills along with the fever; vomiting and constipation are usual, along with back pains and a reduction of heart rate and blood pressure, and the skin turns yellow from jaundice. After 3 days or so the symptoms improve, only to return with fierce intensity and accompanied by internal bleeding; the victim may become delirious and fall into a coma.

Why dengue patient develop pleural effusion?

It is due to cytokine mediated increase in capillary permeability in dengue viral infection. It says tht IL-8 levels in pleural effusion fluid is high. Fluid can be an exudate or a transudate. What is mostly seen is an exudate.

I was searching for the same question this answer is in "Pleural diseases By Richard W. Light".

Nutrition

Except dark colored foods for dengue patients?

we were told by our clinical instructor that one reason no dark colored foods are given to a patient with dengue is that they're watching for signs of bleeding which may be seen in the stool and urine. dark colored foods cause these stuff to also become dark in color and to determine if it is due to the food or blood, a test like stool exam has to be performed..

What is dengue fever?

Dengue fever is an infectious viral disease caused by the bite of infected mosquitoes.

Symptoms are sudden onset of high fever, severe headache, extreme joint pain (thus the vernacular name, bone break fever).

Note that DF is comparatively rare and rarely fatal when it does occur.

What microbe causes dengue fever?

it is caused by a virus serotype of the genus flavivirus wich corresponds to the family flaviviridae and it is transmitted by the aedes eygipti moskitoe Dengue fever can be caused by any one of four types of dengue virus: DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN-4.
why do you think so? it caused by virus, all was 4 serotypes, usually found in tropical contry. all of them was DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3, and DENV-4.

if you dont know, viruses is a different matter than microbes. viruses just consist of a DNA or RNA strand and a bunch of protein capsule, while microbes are one-cell living thing with all mitocondrias and etc, etc beside the DNA strand

Nursing intervention of dengue?

Dengue Nursing Interventions rely on following doctor's advise of increase in fluid intake for hydration (water specifically and avoiding coloured fluids that may mask bleeding), encouraging the patient to rest more so the body recovers form the pains and aches. Patient even after discharge from the hospital must still be under bleeding precautions. Use soft bristled toothbrush (or cotton instead) when doing oral care, not eating coloured food and fluids that may mask bleeding, monitoring s/s of bleeding as epistaxis (nosebleeding) , black stools or hematochezia (GIT bleeding),hematuria (blood in the urine), bruising and petechia. Avoid from instances where patinet will develop bruises like rouggh play and jarring of body parts against objects.

Body needs 3-3.5 ml of water daily( 3,000-3,500 ml of water) as the body has sensible and insensible water losses. More water intake though for patients who are sick like dengue cases. It surely aids in the speedy recovery of the patient.

If a patient is still under Dengue fever Grade 1 diagnosis, it is of dire importance that the patient do not progress to Dengue Hemmorhagic Fever as this is a deadly state wherein patient may really undergo blood transfusion. That is why in all cases of dengue (whatever grade it is in already, signs and symptoms of bleeding must be monitored). There will always be a 24 hour(sometimes a 12 hour) CBC check until parameters are within normal or at least until WBC is already in the fighting stage(In dengue fever cases, WBC goes down as this is a viral disease).Monitor platelet and WBC count.

Have we controlled dengue?

Dengue fever has continued to haunt mankind for the last several centuries with historical accounts of this disease from Africa which are between five to six hundred years old. The first outbreaks of dengue fever reached Asia, South America and Africa concurrently in the 1780s. Now this disease is endemic in several regions including Southeast Asia, Latin America, Asia, and the Caribbean; areas with a high vector population of the mosquitoes that causes the disease, the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Dengue fever has become a prominent infectious disease with outbreaks in as many as 120 countries of the world. The annual disease burden of this disease has reached 40 million with dengue becoming the second-most prevalent mosquito-borne infection after malaria in recent decades.

The illness causes significant morbidity with the cases of dengue haemorrhagic fever (which is a complicated form of this disease) touching several thousand a year. This disease was eliminated from Pakistan in the 1970s only to reappear in 1994. The recent epidemic of dengue fever in the country has been one of the biggest in the history of this country. Attention has been refocused on this condition due to the scale of devastation it has caused, in terms of health care related and economic costs.

Several countries including Sri Lanka have taken measures including case surveillance, research and interventions designed to eradicate the vector for this disease. Unfortunately, Pakistan has lagged behind in this respect. Health and economic research specific to dengue is urgently needed to ensure informed decision-making on the various options for controlling and preventing this disease. Several organisations, including various academic institutions and non-governmental organisations have initiated projects designed to address the menace of dengue fever. One such effort is the research being conducted by the Fatima Memorial System and Hospital in Lahore in collaboration with the University of Punjab.

While significant effort is on at the global level to institutionalise health research within the health care systems of countries, the developing countries are not benefitting from these endeavours owing to their severe health research capacity constraints. Pakistan too has to date not benefitted from the global initiatives to strengthen health research in developing countries. More than ever before our country needs to develop informed policies and implement evidence-based interventions to protect and promote the health of its people, curtail wasteful expenditure and thus accelerate its economic development.

The options for controlling this disease at this time include vector control and optimal medical therapy for the effected patients. Both these interventions are limited in several ways in their ability to eliminate this disease. A dengue vaccine would fill a substantial need as almost 3.6 billion people are at risk from this potentially fatal infection. Vaccines are in the process of development at this time and preliminary trials have given us hope of being able to control this disease. Development of vaccines has, however, been complicated by the need to immunise against all four serotypes of this virus simultaneously. There are currently at least six vaccines in various phases of clinical trials. It is anticipated that a safe and effective vaccines will be licensed for dengue fever in the next five years.
