Summary
Meningococcal disease has a well-deserved fearsome reputation. It can cause a lethal form of bacterial meningitis as well as septic shock, and is capable of striking quickly-often without warning-leaving patients dead or seriously impaired in a matter of hours. This program gives an overview of meningococcal disease and the vaccines that are available to prevent it. Viewers meet a patient whose case wasn't discovered by the ER doctors who initially treated her, and then learn which telltale symptom prompted her new physician to begin lifesaving treatment. The video also provides tips on how to be proactive in the prevention of meningococcal disease.
