  30. 30. Michigan<br />
  31. 31. RVMC – All cases<br />Fourteen cases of confirmed H1N1 (as of October 6)<br />Average age 17 years (range 35 days-42 years)<br />Male : Female = 1.2:1<br />Average hospital length of stay 6.5 days<br />Excluding ICU patients, hospital LOS 2 days<br />Two patients expired. <br />
  32. 32. RVMC – ICU cases<br />4 admitted to ICU<br />Age 25-34 years old<br />3/4 developed severe ARDS.<br />All ARDS patients required high-frequency oscillator.<br />Two deaths, one transferred to a long-term acute care facility on mechanical ventilation, one discharged from hospital after 3 days<br />Average hospital/ICU LOS is 16 days (range 3-52 days)<br />
  33. 33. RVMC – ICU Cases<br />
  34. 34. Common Themes<br />Severe disease found in younger patients (pooled mean is 40 years old).<br />The majority of ICU admits required prolonged invasive mechanical ventilation.<br />Non-invasive ventilation not effective.<br />Significant portion required HFOV or ECMO. <br />
  35. 35. Common Themes<br />Spain and Michigan reported range of 4-8 days from onset to first antiviral dose. <br />ICU mortality rates varied from 28 to 45% (Mexico City, Spain, and Michigan).<br />

  39. 39. Case Identification<br />Laboratory confirmation<br />Priority groups<br />Those require hospitalization<br />Those at risk of developing complications<br />Samples<br />Nasopharyngeal swabs or aspirate<br />Nasal swab plus throat swab<br />Nasal wash<br />Tracheal aspirate<br />
  40. 40. Sampling<br />Use personal protective equipment while swabbing.<br />Swab horizontally, away from nasal septum.<br />Samples need to be placed in viral transport media and placed on ice or cold packs or at 4 ºC for transport.<br />
  41. 41. Diagnostic Tests<br />Rapid antigen detection<br />Immunofluorescence<br />Nucleic acid testing : rRT-PCR<br />Viral culture<br />Antibody testing<br />Acute sample<br />Convalescent sample<br />
  42. 42. Diagnostic Tests<br />Beigel JH. Crit Care Med 2008;36:2660-2666.<br />
  43. 43. Diagnostic Tests<br />Recommendation<br />Send two swabs in one viral transport media for both rapid antigen detection and rRT-PCR for 2009 H1N1<br />If 2009 H1N1 continues to predominate<br />Positive rapid antigen leads to treatment with Oseltamivir or Zanamivir<br />If seasonal flu becomes co-dominant with 2009 H1N1<br />Positive rapid antigen may indicate combination treatment with Oseltamivir and Amantadine OR Zanamivir as single agent<br />Negative rapid antigen test does not exclude influenza infection!<br />

  69. 69. Disaster Preparedness, Triage and Allocation of Resources<br />At a given time, most hospitals operate at over 90% capacity.<br />Does not take much to overwhelm healthcare resources.<br />Hospitals, practitioners, hospital staff need to prepare for a surge in patient load.<br />
  70. 70. What NOT to do<br />
  71. 71. Disaster Preparedness<br />Be prepared<br />“Know your enemies and know yourself, you will be victorious a hundred times in a hundred battles…”<br />Sun Tzu’s The Art of War<br />
  72. 72. Disaster Preparedness<br />Educate yourself<br />CDC guidance<br /> or<br />American Medical Association<br />Society of Critical Care Medicine<br />New England Journal of Medicine H1N1 Center<br />
  73. 73. Disaster Preparedness<br />Protect yourself<br />Personal hygiene<br />Vaccination<br />Protective equipments<br />Self quarantine<br />Social distancing if needed<br />
  74. 74. Disaster Preparedness<br />Maximize staffing<br />Tiered staffing model<br />Physicians, mid-level practitioners, RNs, RTs, and pharmacists<br />Maximize hospital facility<br />Outpatient surgery, short stay unit<br />Cafeteria<br />Auditorium<br />Alternate care site (ACS)<br />
  75. 75. Tiered Staffing<br />
  76. 76. Definition of Triage<br />“Scarce resources are used to provide the maximum benefit to the population at large, even if it means that other victims who might have been saved under usual circumstances cannot be treated optimally…”<br />Christian M et al. Critical care during a pandemic: report from Ontario Health Plan for an influenza pandemic (OHPIP) working group on admission/discharge triage. 2006<br />
  77. 77. Triage<br />Every practitioner performs triage every single day, knowingly or unknowingly.<br />Prioritization of patients with semi-objective risk calculation or eyeballing<br />When resources are available, trials of treatment are reasonable.<br />When resources are limited, trial of treatment may exhaust extensive resources and cause others to die.<br />

  90. 90. Palliative Care Services<br />Those triaged to non-critical care must be treated nonetheless.<br />Simple treatment measures may be provided if resources are available (e.g. oxygen, medications).<br />Patients should be ensured adequate symptom relief and palliative care expertise.<br />
  91. 91. Take Home Messages<br />Recognize high-risk groups for severe 2009 H1N1 disease<br />Most hospitalized patients are younger and could become critically ill quickly.<br />High index of suspicion<br />Isolate early and sufficiently.<br />Protect yourself and your patients.<br />
  92. 92. Take Home Messages<br />Treat early and adequately<br />Treatment most effective within 48 hours<br />Treatment beyond 48 hours warranted in pregnancy and those with persistent, severe symptoms<br />Double dose, double duration for severe cases<br />Be informed, educated and prepared.<br />
