GMoney Anchor - Hello this is Neha Bajaj, I warmly welcome you all to today's video. Dr. Dinesh Yadav is joining us today, who holds an MBBS MD in Pediatrics and has been practicing for fourteen years. He is also the Medical Superintendent at Madhav Hospital in Behrod District, Alwar, Rajasthan. Doctor Yadav, a very warm welcome to you.

Dr Dinesh Yadav Thank you.

GMoney Anchor - Doctor, we're going to talk about a seasonal disease today, malaria. There have been many films made, ads created to raise awareness about it, but how exactly does malaria occur? What are its symptoms? Today, we'll discuss this in clinical terms. How would you define malaria?

Dr Dinesh Yadav Malaria is characterized by fever, chills, body aches, and various complications, which we further investigate through tests. So essentially, it’s a fever, and any fever can be malaria.

GMoney Anchor - Alright. Also, there's viral fever. Let's talk about typhoid fever; it's different from malaria fever. So, what signs and symptoms differentiate it from malarial fever?

Dr Dinesh Yadav The main symptoms of malaria include chills, fever, body aches, which are typical of malaria. Unlike viral fever, malaria presents with a high-grade fever and severe body pain. Additionally, complications may arise over time, distinguishing it from routine viral fever.

GMoney Anchor - Can malaria be fatal? Is it life-threatening?

Dr Dinesh Yadav – Definitely. Malaria can be fatal in severe cases, such as cerebral malaria, where the patient becomes unconscious. This is a serious condition affecting the brain due to malaria. Similarly, hypotension can also be life-threatening.

GMoney Anchor - Alright. If we talk about treatment, I want to discuss diagnosis first. How do you diagnose malaria, and how many days after the fever do you recommend testing if there's no fever?

Dr Dinesh Yadav – During the rainy season, when mosquitoes are abundant and a person presents with a sudden high fever and chills, it’s indicative of malaria. We should investigate on the first day of symptoms. We conduct tests like a slide test or card-based tests, which provide quick results, even on the first day.

GMoney Anchor - And how do you treat children for malaria, and how long does the treatment last?

Dr Dinesh Yadav – The treatment depends on the child’s clinical condition. For simple cases without vomiting or other complications, we start with oral medications like syrup and tablets, usually for 3 to 4 days. In severe cases, where symptoms persist or worsen, injectable treatments are required for 6 to 7 days.

GMoney Anchor - Okay. In which group of people is malaria more commonly seen? Is it more prevalent in children, or do adults also get malaria?

Dr Dinesh Yadav – Malaria can affect anyone, from newborns to the elderly, but severe cases are more common in vulnerable groups like weak children, pregnant women, and those with chronic diseases like asthma or diabetes. Immunity decreases with age, making older adults more susceptible. Symptoms may vary in severity, but malaria can affect anyone.

GMoney Anchor - Alright. What prevention measures do you recommend for malaria?

Dr Dinesh Yadav – Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease, so prevention primarily involves avoiding mosquito bites. Use mosquito nets, anti-mosquito creams, wear full sleeves when outdoors, and eliminate stagnant water sources to prevent mosquito breeding, reducing the risk of malaria transmission.

GMoney Anchor - And what advice would you give to parents regarding malaria treatment?

Dr Dinesh Yadav – During the malaria season, it’s important to protect children from mosquito bites and seek medical attention promptly if symptoms occur. Delayed diagnosis and treatment can worsen the condition, so early treatment is crucial for successful recovery.

GMoney Anchor - Thank you, Doctor Dinesh Yadav, for sharing such valuable insights about malaria today. On behalf of the entire team, I'd like to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join our show.
