Intensive care units (ICUs) have already seen an influx of patients with the influenza virus this year, including influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 (pH1N1). That activity is expected to increase substantially in the coming weeks and months. Prevention with influenza vaccination is strongly recommended; all persons aged 6 months and older, including healthcare personnel, should be vaccinated now.
The Society of Critical Care Medicine has gathered influenza resources to keep ICU professionals informed.
Staying up to date on the latest developments this influenza season is vital as ICU professionals strive to provide the Right Care, Right Now.™
