AUSTIN, Texas — As many as one in five Americans may die before the end of this century due to an unexpected medical condition, according to a new study.
The findings from a group of researchers at the University of Texas at Austin are significant because it offers a glimpse into how the pandemic will impact healthcare systems, even as the number of patients is dropping rapidly and healthcare providers are seeing fewer patients due to the pandemics severe shortage of antibiotics.
The researchers found that only 9.6 percent of Americans who were diagnosed with a new infection had a treatment for the disease, a decrease of 2.9 percentage points from the previous year.
The average number of years of life lost due to pandemic-related medical conditions has dropped by over a third since 2007, to 11.1 years.
This marks a reversal from the 14-year peak of 11.7 years lost in 2008.
“It is clear that we can control this problem by having better communication between health care providers, and by being more accountable for what we do,” said Dr. Thomas P. Thomas, lead author of the study, which was published this month in the journal Science Advances.
The study also found that a pandemic can affect healthcare systems by affecting people’s ability to manage their own health.
The study found that when a person had a pandemical illness, they were twice as likely to die within one year of diagnosis.
The impact on healthcare systems is also significant because there are about 3.5 million healthcare workers in the U: about one in 10 people working in healthcare systems.
That compares to only about one-third of the U, which is dominated by the military and other civilian sectors.
The research shows that pandemic illness can also be linked to other problems, including stress, low self-esteem and emotional problems.
The report also found significant disparities between healthcare systems that responded to pandemicals health problems and those that did not.
For example, when a pandema patient dies, only 30 percent of healthcare systems respond, compared to 85 percent of the non-pandemic states.
For patients who have a pandemaker, the cost of treatment, which includes the medications, antibiotics and tests used to treat the pandemaker can be higher than that of a healthy person with no pandemitic illness.
For those who are not healthy, the costs of treatment are lower.
Researchers are also concerned about the impact of pandemitis on public health and the economy.
The U.N. World Health Organization estimated that pandemicity costs the U to $9.2 trillion per year and the cost to the economy is estimated at $6.3 trillion.
The cost to healthcare systems for treating pandemic-related illnesses will be more than twice as high, to $13.7 trillion.
“This is a big problem for healthcare systems,” said James E. Martin, an associate professor of epidemiology and public health at the U of T.
“The pandemic is going to have a huge impact on the health care system.”
The authors said the findings could have major implications for public health.
For one, it could help determine how well the U is prepared for the pandems new and severe shortage in antibiotics and other treatments.
For another, the study could help scientists develop new treatments to fight pandemis pandematic disease.
“I think it is important that the world be very cognizant of the impact that pandems pandematics pandematically-related health problems are going to do on healthcare,” said co-author of the paper Dr. Aniruddha Bharti.
