Abstract

Objectives: This study analyzed the clinical characteristics and hematologic examination indexes to tell the type of influenza among patients and provide a basis for the early diagnosis and treatment of influenza patients. Methods: We collected demographic characteristics and clinical data from 726 influenza patients and analyzed the impact of different clinical manifestations and hematological tests on the measured values of influenza types. Results: The common clinical manifestations of influenza patients were fever (99.2%), pharyngeal congestion (97.1%) and cough (80.4%), et al. Those with oneset of illness with were 19-49 years of age (OR= 0.335, 95% CI: 0.196-0.573) or had nasal congestion (OR= 0.566, 95% CI: 0.349-0.919) and fever for more than 3 days (OR= 0.368, 95% CI: 0.214-0.632) tend to were diagnosed asprone to have influenza B. While those patients with symptoms of cough (OR=2.119, 95% CI: 1.322-3.389), headache (OR=1.834, 95% CI: 1.157-2.908), muscle pain (OR=1.811, 95% CI: 1.139-2.880), and blood CPR>8mg/L (OR=2.315, 95% CI: 1.501-3.589) were prone to have influenza A. Conclusion: By combining clinical manifestations and laboratory findings, it is possible to initially distinguish the type of influenza, which can provide assistance in the early treatment and prognosis of influenza.
