UC Davis Children's Hospital Saves the Life of 14-year-old Bishop, Calif. Teen Infected with Hantavirus
Date:9/5/2013

Sacramento, Calif. (PRWEB) September 05, 2013

Jordan Herbst, a 14-year-old resident of Bishop, Calif., is at home recovering from a life-threatening and rare infection with hantavirus, through the efforts of pediatric specialists at hospitals in Inyo County, Reno, Nev., and at UC Davis Children’s Hospital, including critical-care medicine physicians in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit/Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and the truly heroic efforts of the hospital’s Pediatric Critical Care Transport Team, which hand-ventilated the teenager for more than two hours while airlifting him from Reno to Sacramento.

Hantavirus is exceptionally rare. It is transmitted almost exclusively by contact with rodent excrement or urine. Only 55 cases have been confirmed in California, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A notable outbreak occurred in 2012 in the Curry Village area of Yosemite National Park where eight people became ill, three of whom died.

Jordan began to feel sick on Saturday, Aug. 10, while returning to Bishop from a vacation in Eugene, Ore. with his mother, Katharine Allen, co-president of InterpretAmerica, a translation and interpreting business in the tiny community. With a population of about 4,000, Bishop sits in the northern part of Inyo County at the northern end of the Owens Valley with the Sierra Nevada to the west and White Mountains to the east.

Allen recalled that her son had been feeling under the weather throughout the two-day road trip home. She thought he had a virus, possibly the flu. “On both days of the drive he was complaining of feeling achy and kind of feverish. I thought, ‘Well, he’s either getting a cold, or he’s tired from all of the driving,’” Allen said. “Still, he was pretty perky until he went to bed on Sunday night.”

Jordan became nauseous and began vomiting shortly after midnight. Allen said that she decided to spend the night
