    CDC Confirms Montana’s First H1N1 (Swine) Influenza Case

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed Montana’s first H1N1 (swine) influenza case today.

    The Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) and RiverStone Health, Yellowstone County’s local public health organization, announced this case as probable on Friday, May 8, 2009. The case involves a Yellowstone County adult male. The patient was not hospitalized.

    There are no other confirmed cases at this time.

    DPHHS state medical officer Dr. Steven Helgerson said more H1N1 (swine) influenza cases are likely in Montana.

    The symptoms of the H1N1 (swine) influenza are similar to those of seasonal regular influenza: high fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose and body aches. Treatment of the H1N1 (swine) influenza is the same as influenza: stay in bed, rest and drink plenty of fluids.

    “If you are concerned about your symptoms, contact your primary care doctor,” Dr. Helgerson said. “Every person can protect themselves from influenza and other illnesses by practicing good hygiene. Wash your hands thoroughly and try to limit contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, stay home.”

    For more information about H1N1 (swine) influenza visit the DPHHS website at www.dphhs.mt.gov/swineflu.

    For more information call DPHHS public information officer Jon Ebelt at 406-444-0936 or Barbara Schneeman of RiverStone Health at 406-651-6420.

            Novel Influenza A H1N1 in Montana

            Our Mission: Improving and protecting the health, well-being and self-reliance of all Montanans.
            Influenza is occuring in Montana. Illness is being caused by several strains of the influenza virus, both seasonal influenza viruses and a recently identified strain called "novel influenza A H1N1". The illness caused by the recently recognized H1N1 strain cannot be distinguished from illness caused by the other seasonal strains of the virus based on signs or sypmtoms---the illness itself has been the same. Only specialized laboratory tests can determine which of the influenza virus strains has caused an individual case of illness. By May 20, 10 cases of influenza illness had been confirmed to result from infection with the novel influenza A H1N1 strain in Montana. These cases had been identified in 3 counties (Custer, Hill and Yellowstone). Since influenza cases are occurring in many other counties in all regions of the state it is highly likely that additional cases caused by the recently recognized H1N1 strain will be confirmed as specimens are submitted for laboratory testing.
