Sharyakov D.E., Semenov V.M. Skvortsova V.V.

Objectives. The aim of investigation was to define clinical features of influenza – associated pneumonia.
Materials and methods. 119 cases of influenza - associated pneumonia were analyzed. We have examined clinical characteristics of the disease, laboratory data??, types  of concomitant bacterial infection,  hemodynamic parame-ters,  monitored respiratory function.
Results. Key  specifications of influenza – associated pneumonia were determined in various categories of patients.
Conclusion.  In influenza - associated pneumonias we have discovered significant  violations of hemodyna-mics, microcirculation, renal function and blood coagulation system. We have also established, that bacteria strain play no significant role in clinical features of influenza – associated pneumonias.
