Risks of Influenza with Mesothelioma

by: nphare

Mon Aug 22, 2011 at 13:36:58 PM EDT

Influenza virus infection, commonly known as the flu, is a seasonal virus that can pose serious risks for compromised individuals. H1N1 or swine flu has become more prevalent in the United States, and can cause similarly seriously health complications as seasonal influenza in Mesothelioma cancer patients. If left untreated, influenza can complicate ongoing treatment, prolong hospital stays, and may cause death.

For patients with a pleural Mesothelioma Prognosis influenza can exacerbate cancer symptoms. As the lining of the lungs is affected, individuals struggle to breathe, cough and have difficulty swallowing. If an individual with mesothelioma contracts influenza, breathing can become more difficult. Coughing brought on by the flu can rupture delicate blood vessels in the lungs.

If a mesothelioma patient is undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment, typically their immune systems are compromised and suppressed, thus making it easier to contract the flu.

More HTML Basics

by: katiebird

Sat Mar 10, 2007 at 23:22:47 PM EST

I'm reworking some of the earlier HTML instructions -- the instructions about removing spaces made some of the earlier HTML Hints confusing for me.  So I've redone the instructions without the space issue.

You can Copy/Paste the HTML codes in this diary just as they are (or type them just as they appear) in any diary or comment.

These instructions are stolen adapted from AnnieB, who reminds us to use American spelling for color and other HTML commands.

Bold text | Italics text | Bold Italic text | Color Text! | Text in a Box |

This is intended for 'first timers' who want to try some bolding or colours (colors) in their postings.  We will start simple and build from there ..

How to make lists in HTML

by: pogge

Sat Nov 18, 2006 at 14:45:12 PM EST

There are two types of lists. An unordered list uses bullets to designate individual items. An ordered list uses numeric digits to do so.

As with a lot of HTML, you use pairs of tags -- an opening and closing tag -- to control the format. In both the examples that follow, I'll put a space after the opening < to show what the code looks like and then repeat the example without that space to show the result.
