Resumo: AIM: To describe a nosocomial outbreak of H1N1 influenza A in an inpatient hematology and allogeneic stem cell transplant unit and outcomes of universal oseltamivir prophylaxis. METHODS: Medical records of all patients admitted to the unit were reviewed to define the nosocomial outbreak, commencing 1 week prior to the index case until 4 weeks following institution of oseltamivir prophylaxis. Timelines for clinical symptoms, viral spread, management, patient outcomes and follow up testing we (mais)

Soignants et résidents, sensibilisation à la vaccination antigrippale./ [Caregivers and residents, raising awareness of the influenza vaccine].

Autor(es): Plantet, Claire; Sanchez, Stéphane; Cohen, Nadia; Denormandie, Philippe; Dinh, Aurélien
Fonte: Soins Gerontol;21(122): 39-43, 2016 Nov - Dec.
MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 27842651
Resumo: Influenza epidemics in nursing homes can lead to serious complications with a high level of lethality. It has been shown that an active policy of awareness campaigns with obligatory information materials and easy access to influenza immunisation increases the rate of vaccination coverage.

Effect of two-step hygiene management on the prevention of nosocomial influenza in a season with high influenza activity.

Autor(es): Ambrosch, A; Rockmann, F
Fonte: J Hosp Infect;94(2): 143-9, 2016 Oct.
MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 27515458
Resumo: BACKGROUND: Rapid identification of patients infected with influenza virus, precise case definition and strict hygiene measures are important for the prevention of nosocomial transmission. AIM: To prove the usefulness of a case definition for rapid identification of patients with influenza and to investigate the effect of two-step hygiene management, including the continuous use of surgical masks by hospital staff, on the rate of nosocomial infections. METHODS: All patients hospitalized bet (mais)

The environmental deposition of influenza virus from patients infected with influenza A(H1N1)pdm09: Implications for infection prevention and control.

MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 26653976
Resumo: In a multi-center, prospective, observational study over two influenza seasons, we sought to quantify and correlate the amount of virus recovered from the nares of infected subjects with that recovered from their immediate environment in community and hospital settings. We recorded the symptoms of adults and children with A(H1N1)pdm09 infection, took nasal swabs, and sampled touched surfaces and room air. Forty-two infected subjects were followed up. The mean duration of virus shedding was (mais)

Assessing Interventions To Improve Influenza Vaccine Uptake Among Health Care Workers.

MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 26858382
Resumo: Despite official recommendations for health care workers to receive the influenza vaccine, uptake remains low. This systematic review of randomized controlled trials was conducted to understand the evidence about interventions to improve influenza vaccine uptake among health care workers. We identified twelve randomized controlled trials that, collectively, assessed six major categories of interventions involving 193,924 health care workers in high-income countries. The categories were educ (mais)

Assessing coughing-induced influenza droplet transmission and implications for infection risk control.

Autor(es): Cheng, Y-H; Wang, C-H; You, S-H; Hsieh, N-H; Chen, W-Y; Chio, C-P; Liao, C-M
Fonte: Epidemiol Infect;144(2): 333-45, 2016 Jan.
MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 26211781
Resumo: Indoor transmission of respiratory droplets bearing influenza within humans poses high risks to respiratory function deterioration and death. Therefore, we aimed to develop a framework for quantifying the influenza infection risk based on the relationships between inhaled/exhaled respiratory droplets and airborne transmission dynamics in a ventilated airspace. An experiment was conducted to measure the size distribution of influenza-containing droplets produced by coughing for a better unde (mais)

A model for the A(H1N1) epidemic in Mexico, including social isolation/ Un modelo para la epidemia de A(H1N1) en México incorporando aislamiento social

Resumo: OBJECTIVE: We present a model for the 2009 influenza epidemic in Mexico to describe the observed pattern of the epidemic from March through the end of August (before the onset of the expected winter epidemic) in terms of the reproduction number and social isolation measures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The model uses a system of ordinary differential equations. Computer simulations are performed to optimize trajectories as a function of parameters. RESULTS: We report on the theoretical consequenc (mais)
