Influenza Vaccination in the Emergency Department

2014-08-27 03:25:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Randomized controlled trial of influenza vaccination versus referral for vaccination in the Emergency department. Is the Emergency Department an effective venue for vaccination for influenza? Does vaccination for influenza in the Emergency Department change the rates of influenza, influenza-like-illness or medical provider visits when compared with patient referred for vaccination in the community?

Description

This study is a prospective randomized, controlled trial of influenza vaccination vs referral for influenza vaccination in the Emergency Department. Subjects are either offered vaccination or education regarding vaccination and a list of community providers. At a four-month follow up, rates of influenza, influenza-like illness and number of medical provider visits are determined.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.

Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.

Infection of domestic and wild fowl and other BIRDS with INFLUENZA A VIRUS. Avian influenza usually does not sicken birds, but can be highly pathogenic and fatal in domestic POULTRY.

A genus of the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE comprising viruses similar to types A and B but less common, more stable, more homogeneous, and lacking the neuraminidase protein. They have not been associated with epidemics but may cause mild influenza. Influenza C virus is the type species.

A genus in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE causing influenza and other diseases in humans and animals. It contains many strains as well as antigenic subtypes of the integral membrane proteins hemagglutinin (HEMAGGLUTININS) and NEURAMINIDASE. The type species is INFLUENZA A VIRUS.
