Asthma Sinus Allergy Program
Medical Center in Baltimore, MD
The presence as well as clinical presentation of these problems can overlap and cause confusion. In a seminar titled Allergies? Asthma? Flu? Know What To Do held recently at GBMC, Dr. Alvin Sanico and Howard County Health Officer Dr. Peter Beilenson discussed the similarities, differences, and connections between these prevalent problems. Attendees learned how to recognize, reply to, and reduce the risks related to these conditions. While most people affected by flu could simply stay home to recover and avoid infecting others, thousands have been hospitalized because of severe and even fatal complications.
