Preliminary estimation of risk factors for admission to intensive care units and for death in patients infected with A(H1N1)2009 influenza virus, France, 2009-2010

Abstract : To estimate the magnitude of the risks associated with age, obesity, pregnancy and diabetes, we compared the prevalence of these conditions reported in hospitalized severe cases to that in the general population, during the 2009-2010 A(H1N1) pandemic flu in France. Pregnancy, obesity, heart failure and diabetes were risk factors for admission into an intensive care unit (OR=5.2 [95%CI 4.0-6.9], 3.8 [3.0-4.9], 3.3 [2.6-4.1] and 2.8 [2.3-3.4], respectively). Only heart failure, obesity, and diabetes were significantly associated with death (OR=6.9 [4.9-9.8], 3.6 [1.9-6.2], and 3.5 [2.5-5.1], respectively). Elderly adults were at lower risk of being admitted into an ICU, but at higher risk of death.
