More about viral infections

Some viral infections are minor and require limited medical intervention. On the other hand, some viral infections can be life-threatening and require major interventions. Viral infections can impact virtually any part of the body.

The most common viral infections Include:

Typically, the body’s immune system will develop a defense system against the virus, and symptoms resolve themselves. In these cases, treating a viral infection is about symptom management and supporting the body with fluids and nutrients. Treatment may entail taking prescription medication or receiving an IV to rehydrate.

If left untreated

Depending on the type of viral infection you have, you may run the risk of further complications if you don’t receive treatment. Certain viral infections absolutely require prompt medical intervention to treat your symptoms. If you’re unwell with a viral infection, it is better to err on the side of caution and contact a medical professional. DispatchHealth is here when you need us for non-life-threatening situations—contact us today to request care at your home.

  • They brought everything you would see in an emergency room, but the emergency room was our bedroom! They set up an IV. They knew what they were doing. And they were very personable. We never felt rushed. And the insurance covered it all. We didn’t have to pay a dime.

  • I wasn’t sure if I should go to the ER. My doctor recommended DispatchHealth. It’s great for people like me who have COPD and other health issues. They tested my blood, ran COVID and flu tests, and even gave me IV fluids. Before leaving they sent a prescription to my pharmacy.

  • They did the ultrasound right there with my Dad on the bed. Didn’t have to go to the emergency room or anything. And the results went straight to his doctor. Very professional, just seamless. And they were very caring and compassionate.
