2017/2018 seasonal influenza worst since a decade

Seasonal influenza leads to steep rise in hospital admissions

In its January 26th briefing, the CDC reported that the current flu season may be the worst in the last decade: CDC 2017-2018 Flu Season

 

In the US 6.6% of outpatients present to a physician due to flu like symptoms. Hospitalizations have also increased steeply, which is an indicator for an increased flu mortality. The CDC expects this years’ flu season to top the 2014/15 season, during which 34 million Americans came down with the flu, 710,000 were hospitalized and about 56,000 died.

In this situation you will most likely see an increasing number of patients with respiratory infections and patients which will need respiratory support.

 

Pall Corporation, as an expert in filtration technology, is known in the market for its high efficiency breathing system filters.

 

In the special circumstances of the current flu season, we want to bring to your attention that we have validated our breathing system filters for the retention of airborne Influenza virus.

 

Our Ultipor25, Ultipor100 and BB50T filters consistently showed influenza virus retention efficiencies of more than 99.999%. For more details please download the technical report about filtration efficiency of Pall breathing circuit filters for human influenza A (H1N1) virus.

Breathing System Filters

A breath of fresh air

Pall Breathing System Filters have been designed to meet the highest performance and quality standards in mechanical ventilation in anaesthesia and intensive care. A plethora of data is available on their validation for the retention of the various human pathogenic organisms and agents, e.g. Influenza Virus A (H1N5), Human Immunodefficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis C Virus, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, pathogenic prion proteins, and many others. Their use at the patient side in anaesthesia ventilation provide a reliable barrier against cross contamination and cross infection between the patient and the ventilation system, enabling the extended use of the breathing system. 

Pall Breathing System Filters are also used in intensive care ventilation to provide physiological levels of humidification to the patient's breathing gases and high levels of protection against airborne and liquid borne contamination. A prospective, controlled randomized clinical trial showed that the rate of ventilator associated pneumonia was significantly reduced in the patient group that used the Pall Breathing System Filters as compared to the group that used active humidification.

In the medical industry, patient care, safety, and health are everyone’s top priority. But even in the most sterile environments, health care facilities can pose significant risk to patients, healthcare professionals, and bystanders through cross-contamination and cross-infection.

Anesthesia Gas Filtration

Patients utilizing anesthesia or intensive care mechanical ventilation are subject to cross contamination and cross infection between the ventilation system and themselves. A patient’s expiratory gas may also release particulates, microbes, medications, and other waste products into the surrounding environment, potentially exposing healthcare workers and bystanders. Anesthesia gas filters establish a protective barrier that helps prevent these potential hazards.

Anesthesia Multi-Use Circuits

A single Anesthesia gas filtration system can be used for all procedures performed within a 24-hour period, as long as each new patient is provided with a fresh Pall patient kit. The advantages of using the same circuit for multiple patients are clear.

Medical Gas Filtration

During laparoscopic procedures and other minimally invasive surgeries involving insufflation, electrocautery, laser, or ultrasonic scalpel use, certain machinery used can cause a buildup of smoke in the peritoneal cavity, blocking the surgeon’s vision and compromising patient safety.
