Abstract

The influenza A(H1N1)-2009 pandemia poses a possible challenge to Pneumology divisions in terms of the much higher frequency of severe respiratory complications in young subjects compared to what is normally observed with seasonal influenza. This document aims to rationalize the approach to the hospitalized patient, providing support for the creation of local management protocols based on the skills and resources (human and material) effectively existing on site. Through identifying the level of severity, recognizing early the signs of respiratory failure and discriminating those situations that can be managed with the expertise of the Divisions of Pneumo(phtysio)logy from those that should be handled by Intensive Care, it is possible to construct a model applicable in this and other potential situations in which an elevated incidence of respiratory complications requires an adjustment of the services provided with respect to routine activity.
