1 Enhancing Respiratory Infection Surveillance on the Arizona-Sonora Border BIDS Program Sentinel Surveillance Data Catherine Golenko, MPH, Arizona Department of Health Services

2 *Arizona border population: 1,354,780 Sonora border population: 774,525 *US US Census Data MX INEGI Census Data

3 Border Infectious Disease Surveillance (BIDS) Program Assess border as a single unit Compatible case definitions Syndromic and lab surveillance Binational data sharing

4 Respiratory surveillance in Arizona Existing surveillance data sources in Arizona ILI net (Influenza-like illness in outpatient and emergency departments) ILI- Defined as fever AND cough or sore throat Lab confirmed cases (all facility types) School surveillance (influenza-like illness in sentinel schools)

5 Respiratory Surveillance Objectives During the and flu season: 1. to monitor BIDS sentinel hospital-site patients with viral respiratory testing in Pima County, AZ 2. to monitor infecting respiratory pathogens among hospitalized patients with Severe Acute Respiratory Infection (SARI)

6 Severe Acute Respiratory Infection (SARI) Definition Case Definition For persons 5 years old: Self-reported fever or recorded fever over 100 ºF (38 C), AND Cough or sore throat, AND Requiring hospital admission For children < 5 years old: Clinical suspicion of pneumonia, AND Requiring hospital admission

7 SARI Surveillance Methods Three surveillance sites in border region of AZ Patient comes into the ER with SARI symptoms and is admitted Clinical team identifies and registers the case Physician orders BIDS panel: Nasal swab- Viral results Throat swab or lower respiratory specimen- Bacterial results Remnant Sera sample- Coccidioidomycosis antibodies All samples are sent to an independent lab in Tucson, AZ Nurse fills out case report form- sent with samples

10 Analyses Data were collected on two populations: (1) virologic data from BIDS sentinel hospital-site patients presenting with respiratory infections, and (2) hospitalized SARI patients Statistical Analyses: BIDS sentinel hospital-site virologic dataset Graph of viral results and border ILI proportion positive by epidemiologic week SARI dataset Graph of respiratory results by epidemiologic week Descriptive analyses on demographic and clinical data
