          Bach Mai Hospital: Many cases of influenza are in severe condition

          THUY GIANG (VIETNAM +) 12/02/2019 17:53 GMT

          On February 12, Associate Professor Dao Xuan Co - Head of the intensive care unit (Bach Mai Hospital) said that in the last 4 weeks, many patients with influenza have been hospitalized in severe conditions before and after Tet.

          There were 6-7 flu patients in severe conditions who were hospitalized.

          Currently, there are 2 patients suffering from A / H1N1 flu who are undergoing mechanical ventilation, prognosis in very bad condition. Two patients suspected of getting influenza A / H1N1 waiting for test results.

          At the intensive care unit, two weeks ago, there was a female patient, 31 years old (in Thanh Hoa), carrying Pregnancy at 24 weeks of influenza A / H1N1 in severe illness, bad progress. Many times the patient is at risk of death.

          After that, the patient was taken to Bach Mai Hospital. Doctors have carried out continuous dialysis, for patients on mechanical ventilation, antibiotic treatment. Patients treated after two weeks did not survive. Because the patient is pregnant, the resistance is also worse.

          Currently, there are 2 male patients with influenza A / H1N1 and some patients suspected of being infected with A / H1N1 flu in a very critical situation, and must be isolated.

          That is the case of a 60-year-old male patient in Son Tay with a history of hypertension. The patient was treated at the lower level, then transferred to Bach Mai Hospital. After the patient was transferred, the doctors conducted dialysis, for patients on mechanical ventilation, antibiotics. Test results show that patients with influenza A / H1N1. The current patient is still breathing.

          The second case is a 51-year-old male patient admitted to the hospital on the 2nd day of the New Year. Patients with large body fat, often drinking alcohol, patients with diabetes.

          The family members said that in the house, there was a grandson who had flu 4-5 days before, then he spread the flu from him. The patient after being transferred to the hospital is intubated by a doctor, giving mechanical ventilation, antiviral treatment, support for circulation outside the body. However, patients do not respond much.

          Examination of patient samples sent to the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology shows that patients with influenza A / H1N1. After one week of treatment, the patient has not improved, still has multiple organ failure, the prognosis is difficult to overcome.

          Associate Professor Co said flu patients were hospitalized with patients with severe illness. These are patients such as pregnancy, diabetes, heart failure ... less resistance, so the disease is more likely to happen quickly and quickly.

          Associate Professor Dao Xuan Co analyzed that the current A / H1N1 flu is seasonal flu, usually not dangerous, but A / H1N1 flu has the ability to penetrate deeply into lung cells, causing pneumonia, multiple failure viscera and even death if the patient is not treated promptly, on the patient's background.

          “Flu can occur at any time of the year. Every person in a year often gets flu about 1 time. Some people have sketchy manifestations, some have severe. Some people only get better after 3-5 days, but there are some cases of severe and complicated changes. Therefore, patients with influenza who show signs of coughing, difficulty breathing, increased chest pressure for a few days without relieved need to go to health facilities early for examination and hospitalization, ”Co said.

          People with influenza A / H1N1 virus are able to spread the disease to people around 1 day before to 7 days after the symptoms of the disease. The disease spreads more strongly, faster when there is direct contact with the patient, especially in a crowded place.

          To prevent the flu, Dr. Co recommends that people cover their mouths when coughing or sneezing. After that, it is necessary to wash the hands so that when handling the common items such as door handles, elevator buttons ... will limit the spread of pathogens to others. There is now a flu vaccine, so people actively vaccinated against the flu.
