        Influenza A: 15 children with severe respiratory problems were cured and one died

        [11/07/2009 | 09:51] - When located just 240 km from Capital Federal, in Gualeguaych? knew that a pandemic of influenza A was going to arrive earlier, and perhaps with greater virulence than another city of Entre Rios .

        Jorge Garcia, Chief of Pediatrics at the hospital "Centennial" in Gualeguaych?, described as the hospital was to care for patients with respiratory problems. The moment of greatest severity lived as last Saturday when 16 boys found that did not improve with conventional antibiotics. "We had to put all these kids with respiratory problems in the protocol of antiviral treatment as if they were patients who had influenza A," he said. Most improved and a boy who died had previous neurological problems. They also killed a woman who was pregnant but not yet confirmed that this is a case of influenza H1 N1.

        "Gualeguaych? is a special place, is unusual because geographically glasses direct the Federal Capital. Many people living in Gualeguaych? is going to work and back on Thursday or Friday to Gualeguaych?, "said Garcia. "It is an epidemiological link important when we know that everything has been raised in the great metropolis," he explained.
        25 days ago, which were organized and met every day with the director of the hospital and heads of services, including guards, pediatrics, clinical, and half of adult intensive care. "This was a situation that we came to do and developing strategies to take some lessons taken from outside as if Mexico and the U.S. and the various epidemics of the years 17, 57 and 68," he added.
        "Without a doubt, until June 28 it seemed that there was nothing," he said. From that day: "begin appearing in major newspapers that the information suggested that influenza A was in our country."
        In the pediatric service of a bolt was tightened and the nursing staff and cleaners. "We closed to foreign visitors and that is not related to our service. HiCo four isolation rooms, thinking that something was going to happen, "he said. Until there were no complications in 28 children, but that cases were occurring in the adult population, 20 to 60 years and problems with previous cardiac problems, diabetes and severe bronchial asthma.
        At the same time near the town began to develop joint strategies. "It was a decree to close the places where there was an important movement, especially indoor restaurants, bars and dancing clubs," he said.
        Among all pediatric consultations sought to separate those who have respiratory problems and fever. "These patients always tried to have of our special attention because we knew that patients were at some point we could return at a disadvantage in health," said Chief of Pediatrics.
        "Until Saturday of last week everything was fine. There were kids with bronchiolitis, asthma attacks, "he said. In recent years, with an acceptable range of antibiotics, patients in 48 or 72 hours. have stopped breathing difficulties. "On Saturday we find that instead of being better, they were worse. Radiologic images of pneumonia in one lung were reflected also in the other lung, "said Garcia.
        Immediately contacted Children's Hospital "Ricardo Gutierrez" of Buenos Aires. "Talk to the pediatrician of the hospital and had to put all these kids with respiratory problems in the protocol of antiviral treatment as if they were patients who had influenza A," said the doctor.
        "From there the story changes. July 9 was yesterday met the five-day treatment protocol that marks the antiviral. "I would say thank God and the efforts of all our comrades, the boys have come forward," he explained. In total there were 16 boys. "Fifteen with significant respiratory compromise. We had but a single death of a boy Ceibas with a serious neurological problem. I would say that this guy was going to have that end at some point in their lives, "said Garcia.
        "At this moment we have placed four of those guys who is one of eight or nine years with a severe neurological problem but they are much better with all the measures we have taken. Are being completed to evaluate and you would say that on Monday morning and will go high, "he said.


        "The peak of pediatric consultations we had on Saturday, June 20. Served that day of 250 to 270 of a respiratory consultation, "he said. "Consultations are currently ranging from 30 to 40 queries per day in the hospital. I concur that people would say less than it usually contributes to the hospital, "said Garcia.


        "At first there was a lot of people who had committed to the basic disease. More or less what happened in Buenos Aires in the province, the capital and in Rosario, "he said.In addition they had to meet two cases of pregnant women. "One of them had to do a caesarean section in early. The baby is fine, "he said. But the mother died but it is confirmed that there was an issue for influenza A. Missing virological confirmation of diagnosis.


        "I have 33 years of medical experience and never experienced a situation like this where the number of patients had collapsed or nearly impossible to attend," said Chief of Pediatrics. "When you have no previous experience, we have to live this experience. Draw our conclusions as to see the face this situation in 2010. I believe that all measures were implemented, from a politician or the other, were good measures, "said Garcia.

        "If you ask me whether they were taken in time, I have my doubts. I have the impression that the election was more important than influenza A. But the acts were taken in the first world countries like Mexico and the U.S., "he added.
        The doctor spent a separate paragraph for a part of the society it is recommended that trip but decided to travel the long weekend or attending football matches. "I think there are issues to do with culture and we are far behind and we have little awareness of the rights and duties as citizens," he said.

          PANDEMIC. Reveal that there are 7 cases in the study of people killed by alleged action of the H1N1 virus
          There are 1,000 patients in treatment for influenza A

          SUMUNISTRO. In the Hospital San Roque de Paran? prepare doses of oseltamivir for patients requiring treatment for influenza.
          (Sergio Ruiz)

          Throughout the province to the official data show that there are 80 inpatients. The disease is more virulent in Gualeguaych? and youth.

          For the first data that is known to take into account the actual development of the pandemic influenza A in Entre R?os: official data, although not entirely rigorous about that today in the province there are about 1,000 patients with the antiviral medication against this illness, oseltamivir, which now monopolizes the distribution network of hospitals and healthcare centers in the state.
          However, the data are not sufficient to establish an epidemiological map to establish accurately the actual number of people affected by the influenza virus A H1N1, the protocol followed by professionals in hospitals is to medicate anyone who presents disease symptoms such as high fever, headache and general decay. The official estimate is that 100 flu cases, 92 were type A.

          Precisely, one of the definitions they met at the end of the last meeting of the Federal Health Council (COFESA), chaired by the Minister of Health of the Nation, Jorge Manzur, suggested that any person older than 15 years, suspected of carrying the virus receive the drug oseltamivir provided in public hospitals. Manzur said then that "90% of virus circulating in the country is H1N1," and that "virological studies were performed only in cases of severe acute respiratory infection requiring hospitalization."
          Such a shift in attention complicated the accurate counting of cases of influenza A.

          STATE OF SITUATION. Biochemistry Diana MERN, professional called Situation Room that monitors daily changes in the pandemic influenza A in Entre Rios in the Division of Epidemiology, said the H1N1 virus "has shifted" to other types of flu, by which in patients with suspected tables is no longer taking samples to be sent to the Institute Malbr?n of Buenos Aires, which also said, "is saturated."
          In the front office and the doctor, every patient is evaluated, and if you have some symptoms of the disease, headache, high fever, sore throat, general malaise, is the antiviral medication.
          Accounting for what happens in the state sector and the private sector, which provided the medicine in the state already has some 1,000 medical personnel in the province, revealed Merna.
          They are usually people who are so-called "risk groups", ie young people, pregnant women and patients who have risk factors, such as diabetics, immunosuppressed, asthmatics, children under 5 years and older than 75 years . Clear that there is another group that did not enter into the statistics there are people who are showing symptoms, do not go to the doctor, and self.
          "So we say, do not consult a doctor because the doctor knows what to do, there is a medication available, there is a risk of medication," said Merna.

          CASE STUDY IN. Entre Rios joined on Wednesday, 8, died at the first list of 94 deaths reported by the Ministry of Health of the Nation since the beginning of the pandemic influenza A. It was, as previously reported, the death of a patient of 63 years, a native of Villa Libertador San Mart?n, Diamond department, who according to party official, "had other health problems based on his painting which was complicated and killed. "
          Although the outcome remains still other 7 patients died from acute respiratory complication boxes, which could be due to H1N1 influenza virus, but we must discern the Institute Malbr?n. In this figure adds another: there are currently about 80 patients hospitalized for complications of influenza-like tables.

          Although the focus of the Government aims to Gualeguaych?, the town where the virus has attacked with virulence. "Gualeguaych? is the city where the viral disease is more intense," said Health Minister Angel Giano, and attributed this to two reasons: "The fact that a person has traveled to Mexico at the outbreak of the epidemic in that country and that the return has not taken the necessary measures to avoid contagion, and proximity to the province of Buenos Aires, where there are more cases of influenza A affected.
          "The situation is similar to Gualeguaych? reality of Buenos Aires Federal Capital and the rest of Entre R?os", said the minister did not rule out the possibility that the virus has already mutated in Argentina. "We must prepare for the possibility of a resurgence," Giano said, adding that "beyond the effort to make the state depends on the commitment of society and social responsibility to implement measures for prophylaxis and hygiene stop the advance of the virus. "

          A medical alert inequalities

          Guillermo Zanuttini The doctor recommended that "at this winter than it remains important that all kids develop social activities outdoor conduct and respect for personal care and collective."
          "So, for now, we need to protect their families, care and want and you, too, being with others - peer-to play, have fun and play sports and other recreational activities cultural and performing routine, "he said.
          Zanuttini, head of the Care of Children, Bureau of Maternal and Child Health's Youth Health Department, said that children "should and can exercise their constitutional rights during the winter recess and forced by the educational epidemiological situation created by the spread of respiratory viruses, including the influenza A (H1N1). "
          But he also warned: "Social inequalities in the society determine clearly a pattern of distribution opportunities for well-being, dignity and freedom for our various children and adolescents, and at the same time, that shape and play behavior, behavior and culture individuals to them according to their social group membership. "
          Therefore, he said, "the premises that should guide the actions of state and society as a whole for these priority segments of the population, is to rethink, redesign and redefine democratic criteria, strategies and policies to address such inequities to go very quickly toned until the goal of reducing them all to achieve civil and political rights that allow a floor to their proper dignity, survival and development. "
          Similarly, it recommended that children develop these social activities outdoor conduct and respect for personal care and collectively.
          "These winter long at the spread of influenza, which further increases the risk of inclusion of children and adolescents who are at educational risk, requires that the adults accompanying them, favors activities at home (games, reading, controlled TV, kitchen, household arrangements, cleaning) and in the neighborhood, but their habits and caring individual and social behavior, "he said.
          Recommended play, practice sports, go to the club, to the square and walk outdoors. Discouraged but to go to the theater, the cinema, the player, the pool, to cyber, or bowling. "If there must be protected, but knowing that the risk is higher," he warned.

          The data

          8000 is the last part of DOSE
          oseltamivir in antiviral that is applied in cases of influenza A, which received the province from the Nation.

            The expert committee gave approval for the government to close the recess of the public administration.

            The new threat. The death of a woman occurred on June 26 in Gualeguaych?
            Confirmed a new death from influenza A and the recess ends
            Since now the state takes over the provincial work. Giano opposed the creation of a Ministry of Health.

            Health authorities in the province yesterday, the second confirmed death from influenza A, which occurred on June 26 with a person of Gualeguaych?.
            Health Secretary, Paul Basso reported that laboratory tests confirmed that the Institute Malbr?n suffering from influenza A woman Gualeguaych? deceased for almost a month. "This is a woman who unfortunately had other problems too, because a person was obese, with an asthmatic component and hyperglycemia," explained the official.
            Thus joined two deaths from the H1N1 virus confirmed in the province, but could be more, and perform various tests remaining. Basso said yesterday that the remaining analysis performed with seven other deaths, of which there are high chances of finding other cases.
            Basso said: "This is a woman Gualeguaych? of 31 years, who unfortunately had other problems too, because a person was obese, with an asthmatic component and hyperglycemia. Those are many risk factors together, "he said.
            APF told that the disease was a very rapid fatal evolution. We understand that the people of the Centenary hospital, the woman admitted to hospital and died the same day. There was no time to provide appropriate treatment, "he said.
            Of the other seven deaths, four occurred in Gualeguaych?, but so far could not confirm the cause of death. Eight deaths occurred in this locality, the province hardest hit by the emergence of the virus, were filed as deaths from pneumonia.

            END OF BREAK. The provincial government yesterday made void the recess in the central and decentralized public administration, except for those players considered at-risk groups. Also mandated the continued health emergency, and was considered ineffective administrative unqualified, so the activity will restart today.
            The decree signed by the Lieutenant Governor, Jos? Lauritto, who was in charge of the Executive Branch and was "the curve of evolution of influenza A (H1N1 influenza) marks a downward trend and a decrease of the consultations and the occupation of Critical beds in hospitals and nursing homes more important. "
            It was also clarified that "the committee of experts and recommended to the Provincial Emergency Committee to take into consideration that appropriate measures taken should be left without effect gradually phased transitional ...", and maintain preventive measures.

Moreover, the Minister of Health and Social Action, Angel Giano said radio yesterday that she heard the Voice "by means of the intention to lift the Secretariat Ministry of Health, as published yesterday ONE. "What I understand is that the body of the government promoted the governors," he added Giano. Then he added: "Before this, we should discuss health policy we want for the coming years," he explained. "I do not think it appropriate that legislators imposed on the Governor or a Minister a specific area. Here the ideal is to work, discuss, and call upon all sectors to see what we want to make health policy, "said Giano.
            Yesterday, meanwhile, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Carlos Garbelino (PJ-Victoria), stressed the need to transform the area into the Ministry of Health. "Health" is a key part, with many employees, many, and the administrative bureaucracy sometimes makes something that you should see that yesterday, wait months or a year, "he said.
            Having the rank of Ministry "is needed to improve the health of entrerriano," he said. "We must give greater agility to the process because it is the slowest of the system," said Garbelino, who also criticized the decisions in this area are taken by professionals such as accountants or lawyers, who are not of health, "he added.

            And add 185
            The government reported today bonaerense 77 fatal cases of influenza A in the province, eight more for the last report, and noted that in the district are 709 confirmed cases and 2,870 doubtful. Santa Fe reported six more deaths, leading to 68 deaths in the province of Neuqu?n and the government confirmed four deaths, bringing the total to five deaths in the province, while the City of Buenos Aires confirmed 15 deaths.

                Suman four confirmed deaths by influenza A

                Yesterday confirmed two new cases: a boy of 4 years and an adult Viale 37 years of Gualeguaych?, who died in late June.
                Reduce Enlarge

                Institute Malbr?n samples were sent to 251 suspects, of whom 59 have been confirmed infected.

                Of the two new cases, the person of 37 years, originally from the town of Gualeguaych? is the first victim who was not a background disease. In contrast, little Viale, 4 years old, suffered from a recurring obstructive bronchitis (BOR).
                The confirmations were almost a month after the deaths. The death of Gualeguaych? occurred June 29 and that of the June 27 Viale. Such is the pace of results that will reveal the Institute Malbr?n and consistent with the first two known cases: that of 63 years, died June 19 at the Villa Libertador and the 31 years of Gualeguaych?, who lost his life on June 23.
                These four cases could be added another five, if the samples of the deceased are certified in the coming hours. According to a EL DIARIO Minister of Health and Social Action, Angel Giano, the province sent Malbr?n 251 samples, with confirmation of 59 cases infected with influenza A H1N1.

                CRITERION. The criteria for sending the sample. In early June, when it comes to determining whether the virus was circulating in the province, sent the suspects had any epidemiological link, whether they had traveled to Buenos Aires or had contact with people who had traveled.
                Now, however, they were not making shows for all persons with symptoms, only to suffer a severe disease, like pneumonia, which requires them to stay committed.
                Thus, it is assumed that the percentage of deaths among infected and analyzes data that is sent from Entre Rios will be higher, because fewer samples are taken. "This indicates that no increase in deaths from influenza A, or growing in number of deaths among those infected," explained a sheet to this specialist area of Health of the province.
                The reduction in the shipment of samples were produced, as Giano, on the recommendation of the Malbr?n that "prioritizes cases that are serious in therapy across the country, after reporting on deaths and then samples of suspected cases and believe that they are not going to do more. No more cases are recorded at the request of themselves. "
                Thus, the rhythm analysis results that are sent to the province is very slow, two or three per week. "We used to have to have our own laboratory, hasten the decision to allow this type of analysis," the minister said, confirming that unlock the 70 thousand dollars for imminent investment. "What we should be operational in August," he said.
