Cardiac Surgery in a Patient with Influenza Pneumonia
Received Date: Feb 18, 2021 / Accepted Date: Mar 04, 2021 / Published Date: Mar 11, 2021
Managing a patient with active influenza with surgical emergencies poses a challenge to both treating clinician and infection control preventionist. Active influenza in the perioperative period is known to increase morbidity, but very little literature exists which describes the infection control aspect of the same. Here, we present the infection control aspect of a patient of acute coronary syndrome requiring emergency cardiac bypass surgery who also had influenza A (H3N2).
