Dear EMS Providers, 

The Department is sharing some additional information with you related to increased respiratory virus activity in pediatric populations.  

  1. DPH would like to understand any supply chain challenges EMS services are experiencing in response to the surge in pediatric patients due to respiratory virus activity. Please complete this brief survey to help inform our planning. 
  2. Please find here the recording of last week’s Massachusetts Health and Hospital/DPH webinar: High Flow Nasal Cannula Training November 2 2022 Recording Link. This webinar was tailored to clinicians who are managing patients with bronchiolitis on HFNC outside the ICU – in both community hospitals and sites where there may be a pediatric ICU that is currently at capacity. Please feel free to share this webinar with other involved staff members.  
  3. Please see information below for CDC Health Advisory 479:  Increased Respiratory Virus Activity, Especially Among Children, Early in the 2022-2023 Fall and Winter
