SwiFT inclusion criteria

  • All patients (adult or paediatric) who were either:
    • H1N1 swine influenza (suspected or confirmed) patients referred and assessed as requiring critical care; or
    • non-H1N1 patients referred and assessed as requiring critical care (under usual/ non-pandemic circumstances) but not admitted to a critical care unit in your hospital.

ECMO

A pregnant woman with

swine flu is getting the

"best possible treatment“

after being flown to

Sweden, according to the

Scottish health secretary.

Nicola Sturgeon said she had

had a very rare reaction to the

H1N1 virus.

Sharon Pentleton, 26, who is

critically ill, was taken to

Crosshouse Hospital, in

Kilmarnock, last week, where

she had been put on a

ventilator.

She was transferred to

Stockholm on Thursday

because no beds were

available in the UK for the

procedure she needed.

“…there is insufficient evidence to provide a recommendation for

extracorporeal membrane oxygenation use among patients with

respiratory failure resulting from influenza. However, clinicians

should consider extracorporeal membrane oxygenation within the

context of other salvage therapies for acute respiratory failure.”

(Crit Care Med 2010; 38:1398 –1404

“…clinicians at hospitals that do not have an ECMO program, it would

be advisable to establish institutional guidelines to identify

ECMO-eligible patients in a timely manner and to establish a

relationship with an ECMO capable institution to facilitate safe

interhospital transport”

H1N1 Aftermath

“UK response to H1N1 pandemic was highly satisfactory, independent review says”

BMJ 2010;340:c3569

The review, by Deirdrie Hine, a former chief medical officerfor Wales, says that preparations, including stockpiling drugsand plans to buy up to 132 million doses of vaccine, were "soundlybased in terms of value for money, reflecting the inherentlylow cost of vaccination in relation to the value of lives saved….. changes need to be madeto ensure that critical care services can cope with a more severepandemic should it occur.“
