Artificial Lung for Swine Flu Case

Published tisdag 21 juli 2009 kl 10.22

A Swedish 22-year-old man diagnosed with the worst case of swin flu H1N1 has been moved to Stockholm's Karolinska hospital - where an artificial lung is providing his blood with oxygen while medication is given time to work.

He was moved from a hospital in the central city of Norrköping where his condition worsened while in intensive care in a respirator.

Meanwhile, Swedish health authorities say respiratory services throughout the country are good in the face of expected increases in swin flu cases - but it's not sure if there is enough trained personnel for this and just who is to cover the costs of nation-wide vaccinations.
