In 2009, North American swine influenza, North American avian influenza, human influenza, and swine influenza virus typically found in Asia and Europe reassorted and formed a new subtype
  3. 3. ©drseshas In US, Between 7,070 and 13,930 deaths were attributable to H1N1 flu from April to 14 November 2009. CDC estimates that between about 8,870 and 18,300 2009 H1N1-related deaths occurred between April 2009 and 10 April 2010. India had reported 937 cases and 218 deaths from swine flu in the year 2014. By mid-February 2015, the reported cases and deaths in 2015 had surpassed the previous numbers. The total number of laboratory confirmed cases crossed 33000 mark with death of more than 2000 people. Highest number of deaths are in Gujarat > Rajasthan.

Findings • Fever (upto 1060 F) • Lasts for 3 days • Face : flushed • Skin : Hot and moist • Eyes: Watery and reddened • Ear : Otitis Findings • Nose : Nasal discharge • Mucous membranes : Hyperemic • Cervical LN enlargement in children
  12. 12. ©drseshas Investigations RT – PCR (4 hours) or Isolation of virus in culture or Fourfold rise in virus specific neutralising antibodies. Sample Collection: o Swabs (Nasopharyngeal, Throat, Nasal) o Tracheal aspirate (intubated) o Before administration of anti viral drugs o 40 C in viral transport media within 24 hours. o If not possible, Store at –700 C

  16. 16. ©drseshas Infection control measuresFrequent hand washing of personnel and contacts. Cough etiquettes and maintain arms length distance from others. Dedicated doctors, nurses and paramedical workers. Portable X Ray machine, ventilators, large oxygen cylinders, pulse oxymeter and other supportive equipments Adequate disinfectants and medications
  17. 17. ©drseshas Contd.. Use of face masks Isolation room or beds one meter apart. All those entering room wear protective gear. Prophylaxis to health care personnel. Waste disposal in biohazard labeled bags.
  18. 18. ©drseshas Use of face mask [5] Triplelayerfacemask • Screening area • Isolation ward • Mortuary • Ambulance • Community surveillance,Contact tracing • Security personnel • ≯ 6 hours • Not reuse N95Respirator • Isolation ward - aerosol generating procedures like suction, intubation, nebulization • ICU • Laboratory personnel • ± Expiration valve
  19. 19. ©drseshas For General Public No scientific evidence to show health benefit of using triple layer masks for members of public. Erroneous use of masks or continuous use of a disposable mask for longer than 6 hours or repeated use of same mask may actually increase risk of infection further.
  20. 20. ©drseshas Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) Neuraminidase (NA) Inhibitor The drug should be given as BD dose for 5 days. Adults : Infants : It is also available as syrup – 12mg / ml Weight Dose < 15 kg 30 mg 15 – 23 kg 45 mg 24 – 40 kg 60 mg > 40 kg 75 mg Age Dose < 3 months 12 mg 3 – 5 months 20 mg 6 – 11 months 25 mg
  21. 21. ©drseshas Tamiflu should be given within 24-48 hrs. Adverse reactions of Oseltamivir  No recommendation for dose reduction in hepatic disease.  Dosage modification should be done in renal impairment Common Nausea, Vomiting Occasionally Bronchitis, Insomnia, Vertigo Less commonly Angina, Psuedomembranous colitis, Peritonsillar abscess Rare Anaphylaxis, Skin rashes
  22. 22. ©drseshas Other drugs…[6] Zanamivir (Relenza) : Dry powder inhalation Not effective in children, asthmatics Peramivir (Rapivap, Rapiacta, Peramiflu) : Only Intravenous drug available for Swine flu FDA approved for adults Single dose of 600 mg given.($ 950) M2 Inhibitors – Amantadine, Rimantadine Developed resistance. No longer recommended by CDC. Laninamivir[7] – Phase III trials, Approved in Japan (Inavir)
  23. 23. ©drseshas Supportive Therapy IV fluids, Parenteral Nutrition O2 / Ventilatory support Antibiotics, Vasopressors (shock) PCM / Ibuprofen – fever, myalgia, headache Plenty of fluids If SpO2 < 90% and PaO2 < 60 mmHg – Mechanical Ventilation Preferred – Invasive High dose corticosteroids – No benefit, Potential harm Low dose ( Hydrocortisone 200 – 400 mg / day) – in persistent septic shock SALICYLATES are CONTRAindicated – REYE syndrome
  24. 24. ©drseshas Ventilator Protocol Pressure pre-set (controlled) Low tidal volume ventilator support Tidal volume — 6 ml/kg ideal body weight (Respiratory rate to a maximum of 30- 35 per minute). Open lung strategy of ventilation PEEP titration to keep the lung recruited to achieve an FIO2 of < 0.5 and a saturation of > 90% or a PaO2 of > 60 mmHg Plateau (Pause) pressure not to exceed of > 30-35 mmHg. APRV (Airway Pressure Release Ventilation), IRV (Inverse Ratio Ventilation) in patients with persistent Hypoxemia.
  25. 25. ©drseshas Discharge Policy Adults – 7 days after symptoms have subsided. Children – 14 days after symptoms have subsided.
  26. 26. ©drseshas Complications Sinus / Ear infections Bacterial pneumonia (MRSA,MSSA,Group A strep) Bronchiolitis, Croup, Diarrhea Febrile seizures Rhabdomyolysis Encephalopathy / Encephalitis Myocarditis, Pericarditis Exacerbation of chronic illness (COPD, Diabetes, Coronary artery disease) Reye syndrome Toxic shock syndrome Sudden death
  27. 27. ©drseshas Preventive care for contacts OD dose of Oseltamivir according to body weight till 10 days after last exposure ( Upto 6 weeks) Not recommended for infants < 3 months
  28. 28. ©drseshas Vaccination[8] Prioritized groups 1. Heath Care Workers – Medical and paramedical staff in Casualty, ICU, Isolation ward, Screening centers. 2. All pregnant women. 3. Chronic illnesses. 4. > 65 years, 6 months – 8 years. Takes about 2 – 3 weeks to develop immunity. Administered at least One month prior to commencement of season.
  29. 29. ©drseshas Currently available vaccine is Northern Hemisphere Trivalent Vaccine Inactivated trivalent vaccine (SC/IM) . Vaccination should occur before onset of influenza activity in the community Can be used till May 2017. In India, Influgen (Lupin), Costs ₹ 720. Also Vaxigrip (Sanofi Pasteur),
  30. 30. ©drseshas Strains in the vaccine [9]: A/California/2009 (H1N1)–like virus A/Hong Kong/2014 (H3N2)–like virus B/Brisbane/2008–like virus Quadrivalent vaccines will include an additional vaccine virus strain , B/Phuket/2013–like virus  Contraindicated in Egg allergy and GBS.
