Management of suspected cases of influenza in the ER.
Suspected cases of influenza are defined as patients with:
1) [intense fever or asthenia] + [dyspnea or sore throat or cough or myalgia]
or 2) pneumopathy
or 3) signs of respiratory or hemodynamic distress (1)
The management of these patients will be challenging at several levels : isolation, diagnostic method and treatment.
Our goal is to clarify current practices in Europe during the influenza epidemic.
