While the impact of influenza varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9.3 million and 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 and 810,000 hospitalizations, as well as between 12,000 and 61,000 deaths annually since 2010. There is a need for better treatments for patients with influenza infection, preventative measures, and better mitigation for the impact associated with a pandemic. In this podcast, expert clinicians will discuss the latest updates on the diagnosis of influenza.
