Does anyone know of good articles about H1N1 with compicating MRSA pneumonia? I saw Dr Jain on CNN yesterday and he spoke of this complication that apparently is very deadly. It is not surprising, but the sad thing is that is is effecting children and young adults. He went so far as to recommend that if a flu patient presents with difficulty breathing and a very high WBC, that the doctor should consider starting Vancomycin immediately. This makes sense to me since a patient can go downhill very quickly with MRSA pneumonia.
I don't understand why this information or a form of it isn't a widespread warning for anybody with the flu who has persistant difficulty breathing or fevers. CDC needs to get the word out and give warnings that H1N1 complications can include deadly MRSA pneumonia and people should not ignore the warning signs.
