Influenza is a seasonal viral infection associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In 2009, a novel H1N1 influenza A virus emerged and has been classified as a pandemic. In contrast to seasonal influenza, severe disease from pandemic H1N1 seems concentrated in older children and young adults, with almost no cases reported in patients older than 60 yrs. Although patients with underlying cardiopulmonary disease remain at risk, most complications have occurred among previously healthy… Expand

2009 Influenza A (H1N1): A Clinical Review
TLDR
Compared with prior influenza seasons, the need for rescue oxygenation therapy with nitric oxide, prone ventilation, high-frequency oscillation, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation has increased and specific medical care with neuraminidase inhibitors and antibiotics for secondary bacterial pneumonia are the mainstays of therapy. Expand
Influenza and the use of oseltamivir in children.
TLDR
The course of influenza changes in a positive direction and the rates of complications and mortality significantly reduce in patients in whom oseltamivir treatment is initiated as soon as possible. Expand
Antiviral Treatment of Influenza in Children
TLDR
A comprehensive strategy to reduce influenza-associated hospitalizations and deaths among children should include empiric antiviral treatment for suspected or confirmed influenza of any severity in children who are hospitalized; who have severe, complicated, or progressive illness; or who are at high risk for influenza complications. Expand
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Caused by Influenza B Virus Infection in a Patient with Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
TLDR
The clinical course of a critically ill patient with diffuse large B- cell lymphoma nongerminal center B-cell phenotype who developed acute respiratory distress syndrome caused by influenza B virus infection is described. Expand
The (H1N1) 2009 pandemic influenza pneumonia among adult patients in Japan.
TLDR
In the recent pandemic in Japan, several pure influenza viral pneumonia cases were observed, but it was found that there were no variances in mortality between the different types of pneumonia. Expand
Influenza in Asthmatics: For Better or for Worse?
TLDR
It is reported that numerous other underlying conditions, such as cardiovascular, neurologic, and metabolic diseases may have been underplayed as major drivers of severe influenza during the 2009 pandemic. Expand
Renal complications of seasonal and pandemic influenza A virus infections
TLDR
Although the pathogenesis underlying renal injuries due to influenza A virus has not been delineated, some hypotheses have been advanced, including ATN due to renal hypoperfusion or rhabdomyolysis, glomerular microthrombosis due to DIC, direct viral injury to the kidney, and an altered immune system with systemic mononuclear cell activation following influenza Airus infections. Expand
Unexpected severity of cases of influenza B infection in patients that required hospitalization during the first postpandemic wave.
TLDR
Influenza B infection causes severe infection and it is associated with pneumonia or death, similar to influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 infection, and rapid diagnosis and early antiviral therapy are necessary for managing influenza pneumonia during epidemic periods. Expand
Influenza A virus and related secondary bacterial infections
TLDR
Bacterial infections followed by influenza are the biggest medical concerns associated with elevated mortality rates, and high morbidity and mortality rates have become a priority in terms of health. Expand
Complications and outcomes of pandemic 2009 Influenza A (H1N1) virus infection in hospitalized adults: how do they differ from those in seasonal influenza?
TLDR
Adults hospitalized for pH1N1 influenza had significant complications and mortality despite being younger than patients with seasonal influenza, and patients who received antiviral treatment within 96 h after onset had better survival. Expand

TLDR

Severe respiratory disease concurrent with the circulation of H1N1 influenza.
TLDR
There was a sudden increase in the rate of severe pneumonia and a shift in the age distribution of patients with such illness, which was reminiscent of past pandemics and suggested relative protection for persons who were exposed to H1N1 strains during childhood before the 1957 pandemic. Expand

TLDR
The pathogenic mechanisms behind the influenza CNS complications are unknown and the treatment is symptomatic, with control of vital functions in the intensive care unit, antiepileptic medication and treatment against brain oedema. Expand
H1N1 2009 influenza virus infection during pregnancy in the USA
TLDR
Cases and deaths associated with pandemic H1N1 virus in pregnant women identified in the USA during the first month of the present outbreak lend support to the present recommendation to promptly treat pregnant women with H 1N1 influenza virus infection with anti-influenza drugs. Expand
Influenza and the rates of hospitalization for respiratory disease among infants and young children.
TLDR
Infants and young children without chronic or serious medical conditions are at increased risk for hospitalization during influenza seasons, and routine influenza vaccination should be considered in these children. Expand

TLDR
The microbiologic and pathologic evidence accumulated during the 1918-19 pandemic established the probable bacterial etiology of most influenza fatalities and marked the first recognition of the influenza A virus. Expand

TLDR
Women younger than 65 years with certain chronic medical conditions experience substantial morbidity and mortality from acute cardiopulmonary events during influenza season, and rates were consistently higher during influenza seasons than peri-influenza seasons. Expand

TLDR
This work provides the first detailed clinical, radiographic, and histologic description of influenza pneumonia among three lung transplant recipients and indicates a persistent decline in pulmonary function occurred in all three patients after the acute illness. Expand

TLDR
It is confirmed that bacterial lung infections are occurring among patients with fatal cases of 2009 pandemic influenza A (H1N1) and underscore both the importance of pneumococcal vaccination for persons at increased risk for pneumococCal pneumonia and the need for early recognition of bacterial pneumonia in persons with influenza.
