PURPOSE To investigate the ability of Canadian intensive care units (ICUs) and ventilators to handle widespread re-emergence of the swine-origin H1N1 virus in the context of an aggressive strategy of vaccination. METHOD Data collected during the first wave in Winnipeg, Manitoba, were applied to a variety of second wave pandemic models to determine potential ICU and ventilator demand. RESULTS For attack rates greater than 20% to 25%, significant shortages in ventilators may be expected…

TLDR
Reducing the attack rate among children, whether through vaccination or additional measures, such as social distancing, will be critical to ensure sufficient pediatric intensive care unit capacity for continued pediatric care.
Estimates of the Demand for Mechanical Ventilation in the United States During an Influenza Pandemic
TLDR
There is a clear challenge to plan and prepare to meet demands for mechanical ventilators for a future severe pandemic, and estimates of deaths averted may not be realized.
The HDvent Emergency Ventilator System
The pandemic caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has affected countries all across the world, heavily burdening the medical infrastructure with the growing number
A review of open source ventilators for COVID-19 and future pandemics.
TLDR
A review of open source ventilators for both the current COVID19 pandemic as well as for future pandemics and for everyday use in low-resource settings found that the tested and peer-reviewed systems lacked complete documentation.

A review of open source ventilators for both the current COVID19 pandemic as well as for future pandemics and for everyday use in low-resource settings found that the tested and peer-reviewed systems lacked complete documentation.
Stockpiling Ventilators for Influenza Pandemics
TLDR
A method for optimizing stockpiles of mechanical ventilators, which are critical for treating hospitalized influenza patients in respiratory failure, is introduced and incorporated into a Web-based decision-support tool for pandemic preparedness and response.
Review for Arduino based Portable Ventilator for COVID-19
In response to anticipated shortages of ventilators caused by the COVID-19 pandemic mechanical ventilation is a life-saver in the development of modern ICUs. This paper provides an idea of the origin
Risk factors for mechanical ventilation in U.S. children hospitalized with seasonal influenza and 2009 pandemic influenza A*
TLDR
Although the number of children with a hospital discharge diagnosis of influenza almost tripled during the 2009 pandemic influenza A period, the risk-adjusted proportion of children receiving mechanical ventilation was lower than the authors would have predicted in a seasonal influenza cohort.
Interest of a simple on-line screening registry for measuring ICU burden related to an influenza pandemic
TLDR
The peak Flu-OR during the pandemic significantly exceeded a 15% critical threshold in almost half of the ICUs, with an uneven distribution with time, geographical areas and between University and non-University hospitals.

Critical Care Services and 2009 H1N1 Influenza in Australia and New Zealand
  • A. Act

TLDR
The 2009 H1N1 virus had a substantial effect on ICUs during the winter in Australia and New Zealand, and the data can assist planning for the treatment of patients during theWinter in the Northern Hemisphere.
Development of a critical care triage protocol for pandemic influenza: integrating ethics, evidence and effectiveness.
TLDR
Ontario hospitals are presented with the following scenario: more than twice as many patients will require intensive care, with less than half the usual staff available to provide it.
Critically ill patients with 2009 influenza A(H1N1) infection in Canada.
TLDR
Critical illness due to 2009 influenza A(H1N1) in Canada occurred rapidly after hospital admission, often in young adults, and was associated with severe hypoxemia, multisystem organ failure, a requirement for prolonged mechanical ventilation, and the frequent use of rescue therapies.

TLDR
New Zealand remains in the middle of its traditional influenza season, the influenza A(H1N1)v virus appears relatively infectious, and it is estimated that only about 11% of the population have been infected by this novel agent.
Hospitalized patients with 2009 H1N1 influenza in the United States, April-June 2009.
TLDR
Data suggest that the use of antiviral drugs was beneficial in hospitalized patients, especially when such therapy was initiated early, and patients seemed to benefit from antiviral therapy.
Critical care services in Ontario: a survey-based assessment of current and future resource needs
TLDR
A substantial increase in the need for the highest-level critical care beds over the next two decades is suggested, and unless major investments are made, significant improvements in efficiency will be required to maintain future access to these services.
Key transmission parameters of an institutional outbreak during the 1918 influenza pandemic estimated by mathematical modelling
TLDR
These R0 estimates are broadly consistent with others made for the 1918 influenza pandemic and are not particularly large relative to some other infectious diseases, suggesting that if a novel influenza strain of similar virulence emerged then it could potentially be controlled through the prompt use of major public health measures.
Real-time epidemic forecasting for pandemic influenza
TLDR
Using epidemiological data collected during the early stages of an outbreak, it is shown how the timing of the maximum prevalence of the pandemic wave, along with its amplitude and duration, might be predicted by fitting a mass-action epidemic model to the surveillance data by standard regression analysis.
Social Contacts and Mixing Patterns Relevant to the Spread of Infectious Diseases
TLDR
This study provides the first large-scale quantitative approach to contact patterns relevant for infections transmitted by the respiratory or close-contact route, and the results should lead to improved parameterisation of mathematical models used to design control strategies.
