Abstract

The development of an epidemic of avian influenza will have a major impact on the organisation and structure of the facilities for treatment. This paper, the product of collaboration between the six learned societies concerned, analyses the impact of a possible pandemic on the various aspects of management of patients requiring intensive care. It describes the organisation of hospital pathways for flu and non-flu patients with, in particular, the necessary actions in terms of separation of care facilities, the triage of patients and the cancellation of non-urgent activities. It analyses the preconditions necessary for the efficient functioning of intensive care and the predictable limiting factors. It underlines the importance of training of medical and paramedical personnel. Finally, it tackles the specific problems of paediatric intensive care: organisation, capacity for admissions and training.
